In this episode, I circle back to some of the things that I discussed with Thomas Smith on his podcast Atheistically Speaking. I wasn't entirely happy with some of my responses so I wanted to flesh them out a little more here. I discuss everything from the literary master of the Bible to the Bible's polemical use of the Enuma Elish.
I also discuss my views on the ever controversial Genesis 1 creation account - this will be a delight to YEC and OEC alike!
