Sometimes, we can be so angry at elements of the religious establishment for their corruption, that we can lose our objectivity; there is indeed stuff in biblical faith that is worth investigating.
Nachmanides was a Rabbi from Spain who lived from 1194 AD to 1270 AD. Jews know him as the Ramban.
In Nachmanides' commentary to the Torah, he wrote something that should take the breath away from someone living in the year 2010.
Nachmanides wrote "In the beginning, from total and absolute nothing, the Creator brought forth a substance so thin it had no corporeality, but that substanceless substance could take on form. This was the only physical creation. Now this creation was a very small point and from this all things that ever were or will be formed.... If you will merit and understand the secret of the first word, b’reshit, you will know why the Jerusalem translation is “With wisdom God created the heavens and the earth.” But our knowledge of it -is less than a drop in the vast ocean." -Nachmanides, Commentary on Genesis.
This is loooooooong before Edwin Hubble, Albert Einstein, etc. Could Nachmanides have been privy to divine information?
וַיֹּ֥אמֶר אֱלֹהִ֖ים יְהִ֣י אֹ֑ור וַֽיְהִי־ אֹֽור׃
And God said Let there be light and there was light.
וַיַּ֧רְא אֱלֹהִ֛ים אֶת־ הָאֹ֖ור כִּי־ טֹ֑וב וַיַּבְדֵּ֣ל אֱלֹהִ֔ים בֵּ֥ין הָאֹ֖ור וּבֵ֥ין הַחֹֽשֶׁךְ׃
And God saw the light that it was good and God divided the light from the darkness.
וַיִּקְרָ֨א אֱלֹהִ֤ים לָאֹור֙ יֹ֔ום וְלַחֹ֖שֶׁךְ קָ֣רָא לָ֑יְלָה וַֽיְהִי־ עֶ֥רֶב וַֽיְהִי־ בֹ֖קֶר יֹ֥ום אֶחָֽד׃
And God called the light Day and the darkness he called Night And the evening and the morning were the first day.
וַיֹּ֣אמֶר אֱלֹהִ֔ים יְהִ֥י רָקִ֖יעַ בְּתֹ֣וךְ הַמָּ֑יִם וִיהִ֣י מַבְדִּ֔יל בֵּ֥ין מַ֖יִם לָמָֽיִם׃
And God said Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters and let it divide the waters from the waters.
וַיַּ֣עַשׂ אֱלֹהִים֮ אֶת־ הָרָקִיעַ֒ וַיַּבְדֵּ֗ל בֵּ֤ין הַמַּ֙יִם֙ אֲשֶׁר֙ מִתַּ֣חַת לָרָקִ֔יעַ וּבֵ֣ין הַמַּ֔יִם אֲשֶׁ֖ר מֵעַ֣ל לָרָקִ֑יעַ וַֽיְהִי־ כֵֽן׃
And God made the firmament and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament and it was so.
וַיִּקְרָ֧א אֱלֹהִ֛ים לָֽרָקִ֖יעַ שָׁמָ֑יִם וַֽיְהִי־ עֶ֥רֶב וַֽיְהִי־ בֹ֖קֶר יֹ֥ום שֵׁנִֽי׃
And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
I see this as a metaphor for the cooling down of the universe after the big bang. First there's energy, then there's the elements with the smaller mass numbers.
It would seem silly to expect God to explain twentieth century science to people from thousands of years ago when they're not ready for it. Notice, no command given to believe in a young earth or literal 24 hour Earth days.
