How could I possibly believe the Bible when it speaks of a talking serpent ? I'll attempt to explain why I take the account literally.
" Now the serpent was more crafty than every other animal of the field which Jehovah God had made. And he said to the woman, Did God really say, You shall not eat of any tree of the garden?
And the woman said to the serpent, Of the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat. But of the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, You shall not eat of it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.
And the serpent said to the woman, You shall not surely die! But God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will become like God, knowing good and evil." (Genesis 3:1-5)
