We had a quiz today on the reading and it was about the Modernists and Fundamentalists arguing over Darwinism. In the book, it says: "The 'Modernists' parted company with the 'Fundamentalists' and flatly refused to accept the Bible in its entirety as either history or science." The next paragraph then went on to say that over time, the Modernists "reconcile[d] Darwinism with Christianity. The question asked what the Modernists believed (or something like that - she collected our quizzes so I don't have the question with me). Me and my friend (who is the top kid in the class and in the top ten of our grade) said that the Modernists wanted to get rid of the Bible (or something like that, for reasons stated above). But our teacher said that the Modernists believed in bring Darwinism and Christianity together. We showed her the quote from the book above and she said that "entirety" means that they rejected the Bible as a whole, but believed in parts of it. When I looked up entirety, I found definitions "being entire" and "being complete." I still think that I could argue that both answers are correct because we took entirety as being everything about the Bible. Could someone give me their opinion on this? You don't have to really know US History, I just want to know if other people see the quote the way me and my friend are seeing it.
