but they understood Genesis, which is what this thread is about. please try to stay on topic.Heorhij said:Of men (not gods) who had no clue about science, so...?jckstraw72 said:no im not elevating Fr. Seraphim to infallibility -- but rather the concensus of the Church Fathers.Please note that the Theokritoffs are not suggesting that we must follow Fr Seraphim's example of reading Genesis exactly as the Fathers did, merely that he comes to honest and logical conclusions regarding the committment to young earth creationism. How is this all an Orthodox needs to know? Are you elevating Fr Seraphim's opinion to the status of infallibility; and one that all Orthodox believers should follow? Where does the Church teach that the Orthodox believer must read Genesis in such a way?
