A Victory for Satan?

Of course, all of Satan's victories are temporary, but J.I. Packer offers this:

"It is another victory for Satan when Bible believers go for each other's throats over their rival notions of what the sciences say about the six days of creation and what the text says about the ideas of the scientists....Tenacity of belief that all of the Bible is true does not require equal tenacity in believing that all one's own ideas about its meaning in disputed areas are true also. And in the case of Genesis 1, a worthy echo of its witness to the Creator's glory becomes impossible if all we let ourselves think about when interpreting it is Bible-and-science questions."
