In my opinion the grey area is when we take the Bible as being the word of God. Science simply serves as a tool to explain why events occur in the way that they do. It does not aim at proving the non-existence of God. Just because things didn't happen the way it is mentioned in the Bible has no bearing on God's existence, as the Bible is just a book written by man.

Agreed. That is where faith comes in. Hence the name of the forum that we're posting in. Faith and science are two different things.

I find this statement ambiguous. How do you know the validity of this?

Actually the Bible is a library of books written by several different people throughout history. It is my opinion that all of them are saying the same thing.
* I didn't say it was written by a man, I said it was written by "Man", as in humans.

Perhaps those who contributed toward the writing of the Bible drew their inspiration from God, but I doubt God had much input into the end result.
