i think the most essential creed of the faith is "believe on him whom he hath sent". all this other minutia is really unnecessary. the question however is "do we really believe on him whom he hath sent?" or is it commentary for myth? are the first 11 chapters of genesis allegorical? a lot of scholars believe it's wonderful poetry! what! a supreme, sovereign being could not do that? he would have to be omnipotent, he would have to be omniscient, and he would have to be omnipresent! wow, I believe that is quite possible! a fact as a matter of fact!
