I don't take issue with the content of your answer, only with your opening sentence that Assuming a literal reading of the text (which is what I hold to as a hermeneutic) ... And now your explanation (which is nothing new to me) also contradicts that. Perhaps you have just erred in over-simplifying your view of what a "hermaneutic" is, and that's what's bugging me... Any way, carry on.

+1 for "No, the Bible does not lead us to, or even want us to, draw a dogmatic conclusion..."

Re point #1, Jesus was born to die; but that doesn't imply he was born as an adult. Purpose does not imply maturity. Also, an adult could not name all the animals, either. (In fact, all the adults in all of history have not been able to yet name all of the animals... but I digress...)

How can you apply a literal hermeneutic to the Genesis text, but not to the Psalms text? I respect that there may be reasons to apply a literal or figurative interpretations to either or both texts, but it seems a bit schizophrenic to state that your definition of hermaneutics implies/demands a literal interpretation... except when it doesn't.

comment What is the oldest existing copy of Genesis?
Are you interested in the oldest complete manuscript, or would a partial manuscript satisfy your curiosity?

Thanks for the answer. I would be willing to consider this question a duplicate of the other, in fact.

I like your point that an "unquenchable fire" could simply mean that there is "room for all sinners," and not that it will burn forever. That's an interpretation I had not heard before.
