Genesis, Version 2.0.

Text by Michael Shermer, editor of "Sceptic Magazine" and author of "Why Darwin Matters":

"To convey the logical absurdity of trying to squeeze the round peg of science into the square hole of religion, I penned the following scientific revision of the Genesis creation story. It is not intended as a sacrilege of the poetic beauty of Genesis; rather, it is a mere extension of what the creationists have already done to Genesis in their insistence that it be read not as mythic saga but as sci­entific prose. If Genesis were written in the language of modern science, it would read something like this."
