Proverbs 14:4: “Without oxen a stable stays clean, but you need a strong ox for a large harvest.”
To be sure, the theological stable was a lot cleaner before evolutionary theory came and pooped all over. But, it does do some really heavy lifting for us in biology and geology, and lots of scientists couldn’t do their work without it. Sure, it would be nice to have an evolutionary model that didn’t make any messes for our traditional Bible interpretations, but we do our theology in the real world where we sometimes have to shovel manure and smell animal sweat. We can refuse to have an ox because we don’t like the messiness, or we can admit we need it to describe reality and try to deal.
