Today Francis taught against a magical reading of the creation accounts in Genesis. This section fleshes out just how much magic must be read into the creation of Adam and Eve for them to suddenly appear complete selves without the benefit of any prior ‘other’ whatsoever. Along with the rest of the cosmos humans magically appear with ‘apparent age’ (or we might now say with an apparent other). I suppose it can be fun to be deceived!
