Mike, that’s just sad that you resort to such equivocations. The Bible is full of such “fictions” and “lies.” Most people call them parables:
3And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; 4And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: 5Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: 6And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. 7And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: 8But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. 9Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
10And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? 11He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. 12For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. 13Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

If God had made it quite certain that the earth does not move scientifically speaking when it in fact does move scientifically speaking, I could see the analogy. [/quote]
The Bible is a whole lot more certain about that than it is about than a young earth.
[quote]But I don’t think the Bible teaches science. That’s why I see no conflict between the Bible and science. My only issue is SGH.
[/quote]You’ve already shown that you don’t use that as a principle.
There’s simply no set of principles of Biblical exegesis that you can use that would lead anyone to accept a moving earth but reject an old earth.
