comment Which hermeneutical approaches support a literal interpretation of the Creation account?
Maybe someone can help me out with knowing what questions to ask, then? I had always been told that a day meant 24 hours, but a systematic theology textbook I read disputed that pretty well. So I'm now interested in knowing what other hermeneutical arguments are commonly made for a literal interpretation (seeing as though it seems reputable scholars still hold that viewpoint).

comment Whose meaning are we trying to find?
Surely the answer to this question will depend upon what "inspired" is supposed to mean; whether you take the "God told the author every single word to write down" view or the "People wrote from their own experience after having a God-encounter" or any others.
