Personally, I don't care what a person's beliefs are or are not, as long as those beliefs are not imposed on me or used as a basis to denigrate, alter or punish my beliefs.
Even going as far as saying that certain events are recorded in the Bible, it could be argued as a chicken or the egg arguement. Did God cause a Great Flood, or was God used as an explanation for an unusual weather event?
Is the Bible the word of God or an attribution of events to a deity because they could not otherwise be rationally explained at the time?
I am not advancing one theory over the other, as it all comes down to one's faith and belief.
