Wait, I need a little clarification here.

Earlier on you said: "William still believed that Genesis was true, just that it wasn't a literal description of what happened scientifically."

Now you said: "A Catholic like William of Conches could take the bit about God creating Adam out of dust figuratively and no-one batted an eyelid."

So which is it? Did William believe Genesis to be a true historical account? Or did he not?
