    I mean, plenty of evangelicals accept biological evolution just fine (I'm as good an example as any I suppose). Accommodationism, by its nature, doesn't restrict any view on the subject. Just from listening to his podcast, I can tell you that Heiser has expressed a general lack of interest in evolution from a theological perspective, believes that Darwinian evolution exhibits known issues by scientists in the field, but accepts the general concept of evolution, and believes that Young-Earthers (which he is not) would be best served by taking it seriously.
    As an aside even several of the authors of The Fundamentals (from which "fundamentalism" got its name) were either open to or outright accepted evolution including James Orr, R. A. Torrey, E.Y. Mullins, Benjamin Warfield (who also played a pivotal role in the formulation of the concept of inerrancy) and even George Frederick Wright who would waffle back and forth but even in his "anti" periods was focusing on materialistic evolution and seemingly still open to theistic evolution.

    Arguably it was easier to hold to such a position before the advances in genetics of the past 50 years have dealt concordism serious blows, though Joshua Swamidass's latest attempt to reconcile a literal A&E with current theory has garnered serious attention even from nonreligious scholars. (But I apologize for derailing.)

    Huh. Swamidass is someone that W.L. Craig has been championing a bit lately. Haven't read anything by him myself though.

    A slight clarification to this, but by distinct deities I'm referring specifically to El distinguished from Yahweh. Scholars, including Heiser accept that the passage has in mind other divine beings (sons of the Most High). So Heiser and Smith would both agree that there are lesser "gods" within El/Yahweh's divine council. What they disagree on is that "El" and "Yahweh" were intended to be conceived of as distinct figures in Psalm and Deuteronomy.

    A possible solution for this problem might be found in realizing that there appears to be a profound difference between what science calls human and what the Bible refers to human ("Biblical man"). Something I brought up previously such as here.

    But you're right this is starting to become a derail.

    Huh, I shared Kidner's view with seer in another/similar thread. Interesting.

    It's not a actual derail until someone mentions bacon.

    Like you just did?
    Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

    The Supplementary Hypothesis is that there was a "base" form of the Pentateuch, which over time was adjusted via editing until it reached its final form.
