.   "This book is not, therefore, an attempt to debunk religion. Nor does it critize those who accept a literal reading of the Genesis account of Creation simply as an article of religious faith."

.   "The scientific evidence tells decisively against the literal truth of Genesis. That fact does not mean that religion is refuted."

.   "I quarrel only with those who pretend that there is scientific evidence to favor the Genesis story understood literally".
