Charles Hodge rejected natural sense of Genesis
because of ‘science’

Charles Hodge (1797–1878) was a systematic theologian at Princeton seminary, who wrote many books and articles defending the truths of Christianity, including Biblical inerrancy. But he lapsed by rejecting the plain meaning of Genesis because of alleged geological facts, which were really uniformitarian interpretations of facts.

‘It is of course admitted that, taking this account [Genesis] by itself, it would be most natural to understand the word [day] in its ordinary sense; but if that sense brings the Mosaic account into conflict with facts, [millions of years] and another sense avoids such conflict, then it is obligatory on us to adopt that other.’
