Why, when biblical stories like the six-day creation and the story of Jonah used to be taken literally, do Christians now say with certainty, science contradicting things like that, that they're allegorical?

MY ANSWER:

It depends on the Christian. Some Christians translate the bible to mean exactly what it says. Other Christians make ridiculous excuses to pretend the fantasies are allegorical. 

Sort of off topic: Why do Christian crybabies use censorship to defend their moronic death cult? I think it's because they're desperate. They know their disgusting cult is dying. They know everyone laughs at their breathtaking stupidity.

ANOTHER ANSWER:

As science has continued to show that literal religious claims are wrong, the religious have two choices: Abandon their idiotic and factless delusions, or weasel into a position of claiming that 'it's not literal', as if that is in any way better. How does one work out what is allegorical and what isn't ? Madness.
