So really, who knows. For the most part, believing what happened in the beginning, or even if there was a "beginning" is not something that factors into many decisions I'm making on an average day.
Folks who struggle with this are usually one of two groups:

1. Those who are anti-God for any myriad of reasons. Usually hubris. (Different from those who simply don't believe)

2. Christian fundamentalists who believe in a literal interpretation of biblical texts yet deny that choosing a literal interpretation is indeed CHOOSING an interpretation. These I generally regard as fools.
