well I cant prove it but I strongly suspect that it originally said that God created 'small round things' and 'round things' and 'great round things' on the 4th day.
So spirochaetes didn't get created until some other day? Did syphilis not show up until after The Fall?

the question is why is it wrong there?
Because it was a retelling of a campfire myth, originally told by nomadic goatherders and codified a couple of millenia later by pre-scientific folks who really thought that the universe was created in a few days with a platter-shaped place for folks to live at its center. And that it was later covered up entirely by a flood that left eight survivors. And that the Sun, Moon, and stars were attached to the inside of some sort of a big-ass dome.

"The wretched world lies now under the tyranny of foolishness; things are believed by Christians of such absurdity as no one ever could aforetime induce the heathen to believe." - Agobard of Lyons, ca. 830 AD

Re: ..."the Kingdom of God is within"...
That part of our psyche, (soul), is regenerated by the genetic code and born again in every baby brought forth out of the womb back into the living.
Evidence?
Yeah, I thought not.........

"The Christian church, in its attitude toward science, shows the mind of a more or less enlightened man of the Thirteenth Century. It no longer believes that the earth is flat, but it is still convinced that prayer can cure after medicine fails." H L Mencken
