Bible probably not true, says George Bush
US President George W Bush has said that the Bible is"probably not" literally true and that a belief that God created the world is compatible with the theory of evolution.
"I think you can have both," Mr Bush, who leaves office January 20, told ABC television, adding"You're getting me way out of my lane here. I'm just a simple president."
But"evolution is an interesting subject. I happen to believe that
evolution doesn't fully explain the mystery of life," said the president,
an outspoken Christian who often invokes God in his speeches.
