That's not changing the meaning, that's changing the interpetation.
And unless those apologist can provide evidence that their interpetation is the way it was intended by the biblical authors/god, they haven't got anything to go on.

Isn't that just it? Most DO provide "evidence" inasmuch as can be derived from a fallible collection of translated and cherry picked ancient scrolls.

No, as I pointed out in my original response, they interpet texts and to support their interpetation offer either faith (translation: reading the bible to fit with own preconceived beliefs) or interpetations of other texts as support.
