    Christians- How do you know Jesus and the Bible are true?

    The evidence is that Genesis is a re-working of older Mesopotamian creation and flood myths. All historical scholars agree this is true. https://blogs.bu.edu/mzank/2017/09/14/enuma-elish-and-genesis/ Michael Zank, Professor of Religion, Jewish Studies, and Medieval Studies in the College...

    JESUS, God, the Ordinal First and Last

    The Mesopotamian origins the Genesis stories are responding to is consensus. I don't care if an unqualified internet amateur disagrees. I have proven my point long ago. Even the Eden myth: The Hebrew Bible in Its Ancient Near Eastern Setting: Genesis 1-4 in Context 41:20 tree of life...

    About fossils -- would you say this is true?

    You've already been told countless times that abiogenesis isn't evolution. Why are you still acting as though it is? Why can't you take in new information? Inquiring minds want to know.

    About fossils -- would you say this is true?

    Sorry, but now you are trying to reinterpret the Bible after the fact. It is better to think of the stories of Genesis as morality tales. None of them appear to have happened. There never was a flood of Noah. There never were only two people. God could have inspired it, but it...

    About fossils -- would you say this is true?

    I'm not talking about much right now except regarding the ToE. Because of course there are other questions. And so I was doing a little research about what scientists (hope these are not YECly people) believe about the early formation of life (not abiogenesis) on the earth: So here is what I...

    I have two questions about monkeys and evolution

    There is a stark contrast between what you think, and what Bible writers knew... as stated by them. Job spoke about the work of God's hands (Job 14:15) David wrote about creation being the work of God's hands. (Psalm 19:1) The heavens are declaring the glory of God; The skies above proclaim the...

    Does anyone hear think global warming is God's wrath?

    We know God exists and we have faith in Christ and believe in His words, and Christ confirms the essential validity of Genesis chapter 2 for example. God exists, and evolution appears likely as not to have been His plan all along. (or else He did a lot of work to create the illusion of it...

    Are Adam and Eve Incompatible with Evolution?

    Again, I did not say anything about day being 24 hours, but it does say the “light” (daylight) being “day” and “darkness” being “night” in verse 4, follow by “evening and morning” making up a single “day” - “the first day” - in the same verse (5). Then it would follow by 5 more, repeating the...

    Sun created on Genesis Day 4, Plants on Day 3?

    The heavens and the earth were created according to the laws of opposites. To have light you also need darkness. To have good, you have to have bad. To have sweet you have to have bitter. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. The first part was that light was added to...

    Spying the Forbidden Fruit under the Red Light rather than through Rose Colored Lenses.

    In a previous thread on the topic, I implied that if we're allowed to dig deeper into the original (Hebrew) text, we can see that in the Hebrew, the text claims that "dying you shall die" מות תמות. This appears to imply that dying spiritually, because of disobedience, Adam and Eve's bodies will...

    A proposed solution for Young Earth Creationism

    That is only if we assume that Adam and Eve were the first "humans" by scientific definition -and if we assume that the 7 days of genesis described the original creation of the heavens and Earth. When we read scripture, it is very easy to assume things the original writer did not mean -and did...

    The Gap Theory

    I don't believe I've offered any interpretations in this thread. Where I have offered interpretations I usually stick to what the Bible (or other holy scripture) actually says. I am a literalist. For instance: The Beginning 1In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2And the...

    Do creationists accept biology?

    To me Genesis is very messy in regards to light, because I don't see how the ancient people could not see that the light was caused by the sun, even if they didn't knew exactly what it was, they would have been able to figure that out at least. So i think they knew that, just as we do today. So...

    Do creationists accept biology?

    Oh, thanks for mentioning you're an atheist. And I appreciate you're looking at the text. So let's be honest -- there WERE no people living until the what? the sixth day? A 'day' to most westerners usually means the time from midnight to midnight. Evening happens before then. Looking it over...

    The Evil God Challenge

    Genesis 1:4 New International Version (NIV) God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. Is light good? God made that light. If God is evil, he cannot create something good.

    Evolution My ToE

    Interesting that in Genesis 1:5 it says that God called light 'day' ('yom'), and the darkness He called 'night' ('layelah') in that one "day." Day and night make up one day at Genesis 1:5- To quote (NIV) Genesis 1:3-5 referring to this, "And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light...

    Sunlight is not Daylight

    That's true and our sun could not have been at the beginning of the universe contrary to the book of Genesis. It's another proof that it is completely a man-made work of fiction.

    Sunlight is not Daylight

    You cannot have separation of day and night, and morning and evening (Genesis 1:4) without sun, and there are 3 days before creation of sun, moon and stars on the 4th day of creation. It also say that land was created (3rd day) before the sun, moon and stars, which also disagree with science...

    The Word of God

    I don't want to sound rude, but (well), the scripture only tells me what the authors believe rather than you. I can't talk with the authors. Does god speak to you outside the bible to tell you things? For example, years ago my grandmother after her funeral, saved me from getting hit by a car...
