comment Is “kill” a valid translation for Exodus 20:13 (Thou shalt not kill)?
@Flimzy, PETA has recently suggested that the 13th amendment of the US Constitution be applied to enslavement of animals in addition to humans. This reading of the constitution is absurd and sure to be laughed out of court. The verse is Exodus 21:13 is definitely addressing the killing human beings. Capital punishment and war plays a central role in many a Biblical narrative so it definitely doesn't include those either.

comment Which hermeneutical approaches support a literal interpretation of the Creation account?
@Smashery, I recommend editing your question as per JonEricson's suggestion. Also, the Biblical Hermeneutics chat room at chat.stackexchange.com is a good place to get advice on how to formulate your questions for this site and is also a good place for informal conversation about a topic you're interested in.
