I HAVE read it a few dozen times, went to Bible school and Bible study well into my adult years. Obviously, I found no answers there, or I wouldn't be asking questions. In fact, I found more questions than answers.
Just because you, a Christian, claim to see an answer in some verse does not mean I or anyone else who is not a believer will. You see what you want because that's what you've been TAUGHT to see. You know a certain verse means what it does because you've been TAUGHT that's what it means.
I would love to hear what a person, who has never learned anything about the Christian God or Bible thinks certain versus mean to them. I'd love to see if what they come up with would be any different than those who have gone to church and have been taught about relgion and the bible.

I find it amusing that someone will use a verse to discredit a scientific claim, that you could easily manipulate the verse to fit it into the scientific answers.. ex.. I seen people say the earth was covered in water when it was formed.. actually it was so dry there was very little water on earth.. but you could explain it away by saying it was metaphorical for liquid.. since the earth was covered in Lava.
The same for many verses/stories in the bible.. if you take them literally, you can discredit the bible.... but when you take them apart, you can fill in how or why this was written this way.. the problem is, most people that read the bible don't bother to see these little things they could use.
