  • Moses parker on Genesis 1
    In Genesis I don't think that G'd is speaking in a literal way; particularly when he speaks of the creation of the heaven and the earth. For example, when G'd says "let there be light" I think that it's allegorical language extolling us to get knowledge; develop the intellect. Is not knowledge a light? Does it not allow us to see? On the other hand, ignorance is darkness. "And G'd divided the light from the darkness" is allegorical for the separation of ignorance from knowledge.
