    Figure out??? Do you mean interpretation as suites sensibilities? If you dont like the bible the way it is written then that is not my problem.

    Wrong, there is no evidence, genetic, biological, anthropological or archaeological that any hybrid human/chimera beings have ever existed.

    Laughing hilariously . An unsubstantiated web blog based on nothing but a few verses in a single bronze age book then expanded with guesswork, misconception, misunderstanding, misrepresentation and much pinch of salt interpretation.

    How about evidence???

    Also, the page is faulty, it locked up 2 of my browsers, refused to open on a third and partly opened on a 4th but refused to load completely and would not allow itself to be closed. Any site with such problems cannot be taken seriously. Most people would experience one crash and forget it. Im more tenacious than that, and besides i needed a good laugh.

    I'm 56, and I expect I won't live past 100, so by 2062, I am going to be gone. Why should I expect it to be any different then to how it was for me in 1862, or ever 1961 or up to February 8th 1962 before I was born?

    That's all according to man's teachings, seeing how I do not follow man's teachings.

    Seeing you can not handle what the Bible provide's as evidence, that's no fault of mine, but your own fault.

    Dont talk nonsense, i know what how several bibles are written.

    As to handling words, seems you are the one with the problem here. Taking words and embellishing them with your own imagination.

    As for evidence, no one of any credibility takes the bible as evidence. They take is as a book 85% written by various anonymous authors in the bronze age and 15% compiled by committee some 350 years after events.

    No original version of that original bible exists. Whst you have now is an edited, changed, rewritten and recompiled array of over 200 different versions of the bible and none completely agrees with with any other.

    You call this evidence?

    So if we trace that chain back, it starts with God... so God’s ultimately responsible for Satan, no?

    But where did that evil come from?

    - was it innate in Lucifer? Then the one who put it there was God.

    - was it from an external source? Then either that external source came from God or it came from elsewhere. Do you believe that some outside force besides God has influenced the universe?

    Nope not at all, seeing Satan was not evil before he chosen to be evil.
    Before Satan taken upon himself to do evil, Satan's name was Lucifer. Then when Lucifer chosen to do evil, God changed Lucifer's name to Satan the Devil Serpent.

    God is not responsible because someone choses to do evil, when they know the difference between evil and good.

    You make your choices in life, so whatever happens is your responsibility and no one else's.
    The same with Satan, he made the choice, so now Satan has to take the responsibility of the choice he made, as we all do.

    How can spiritual beings such as angels mate with physical beings like humans?

    I've wondered about that too. Did Satan just become evil out of nowhere, just like that?

    According to God in the book of
    Genesis 6:4 that's precisely what happened.
    But the other question is.
    As to where is it written that spiritual beings can not mate with physical brings.

    Note also this shall happen again, just before the tribulation that is soon to come upon all the world,
    That the fallen angels shall come to mate with physical brings. To produce hybrid beings again.
    Give this some thought, beings as tall as 35 to 60 feet tall. Let that sink in.
    And they will be cannibals, eating human flesh.
    As written in the book of
    Numbers 13:31-32---"But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we"

    32 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.

    33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight"

    Note that these Giants are human hybrids, that came from the fallen angels, the sons of God, back in Genesis 6:4.

    Yes that's right, all because Satan wanted to be God that sets on the Throne of God.

    Satan wasn't created evil, Satan was perfect in all his ways. Until he begun to think that he wanted to be God and sat on the Throne of God, showing himself that he is God.
    But Satan is nothing more than a created being

    There was no provoking God, that's silly.

    God has no beginning nor end. God has always has been and always will be.
    From everlasting to everlasting.

    All tho of course you have people with no understanding or knowledge.
