It's a nice story, and I quite agree with your comments. I would add, though, the extra complexion that we are supposed to look at each of the books in the bible and read them, primarily, as the author intended them when they were written. Those books which are histories, should be read as history. Those which are poetry should be read as poetry, and so on. This is what we mean when we say the bible is 'true'. I say this as a believer who gets into trouble with fundies for suggesting that the first few chapters of Genesis don't mean that the world was literally created in seven days just 10 000 years ago! I do believe the bible, but I don't read these chapters as a historical or scientific account.
