What if Genesis 1 was originally written by Adam, before the Egyptians and Babylonians and Sumerians? What if the cosmic temple imagery doesn’t exist, and Ancient Civilisations just got their temple layout from Genesis (effectively the opposite of what Genesis asks for). I’ve seen some creationists argue this before. And I will concede that it is an issue with what Walton argues for. How can we deal with this?
I don’t see this as an issue for Evolution, it’s more of an issue for the rich theology that comes from the universe being a cosmic temple.
