The key word there being literalists. That is not the approach that will benefit you the most when dealing with something like the Bible. It isn't 100% accurate and is made up of different people's experiences and interpretations of those experiences. As such, surely we would be better off taking a less restrictive approach to it?

It isn't something which can be proved or disproved. Much like the existence of God.
