Whose interpretation of the Bible? I'm certainly aligned with some very large Christian denominations in not making a literal interpretation of the Bible, such as the Methodists and the Catholics, and they're theistic religions.
Just an observation, but none of the denominations take the Bible literally. There are always some passages that get white-washed, usually the parts about slavery and polygamy/taking concubines. Also, even among the most fundamental barring a tiny minority, the OT flat-earth is conveniently overlooked.

Exactly my point: ambiguous. Open to interpretation and debate.
So where do you draw the line?

When something seems to hinder practicality, logic, and wisdom. That's usually the point where I'll investigate and research.
But the question was, perhaps this wasn't clear, where is the line between direct and indirect observation? Your answer doesn't seem to address this, except very vaguely. As a rule of thumb, I understand your response. I've 'known' that something was wrong with an statement or idea for days or weeks before realizing what that something is. However, what I am getting at is this: Creationists often discount evolution as not being directly observable yet accept science which is equally not-directly observable as far as I can tell. I want to know where that line is drawn.

It is my opinion that the "line" drawn between direct and indirect observation is a moveable one.
So that makes it a meaningless distinction does it not?
