    Scientific data is continuously getting more accurate. In the same way that Pi isn't just 3.14, or 3.1415, or 3.141592 the age of the Earth is constantly being refined as new or better data becomes available.

    Over the course of a billion years, an error of only 1% still means the number will be off by 10 million years.... Think about that for a second. Of course the number is going to swing by vast amounts because we talking about an incredible number of integers.

    Do you really want to that?

    7,000,000,000 / 2 = 3,500,000,000
    3,500,000,000 / 2 = 1,750,000,000
    etc.
    etc.

    Do that a few more times, and by the 30th time, you have 6.5 people left on Earth.
    30 x 125 year intervals = 3,750 years...

    So Noah's flood happened 3,750 years ago?

    Yikes!

    If the human population doubles every 125 years, then in the approximate 300 years from Noah's Flood to the Tower of Babel, the human population would have increased from 8 to 42. Wow! I wouldn't have thought God would've been so worried about anything that could've been done by so few people. :p

    That's is not an excuse for you to willfully throw out academia.

    No date for a flood! no flood. Its that simple.


    You have no credible position here.

    Please quote from Quran where incest between Adam and Eve has been mentioned.

    The Original Word of Revelation on Moses did have qualities of ethical, moral and spiritual uplift later when the clergy or narrators changed it to suit their whims, Bible lost such qualities. It is better, therefore, to focus on the core teachings of Bible and leave peripherals added later by the erring clergy.

    I agree with you that the inference from Bible "that everybody is descendant from a man and woman who lived together" in the past.

    _____and the period of "6000 years" is a wrong inference from Bible, unless one quotes literally from Bible to have mentioned it.

    He said "subsequently". What he's referring to is that Adam and Eve were the only ones who could have children, which means that their boys and girls had to marry and do hum-hum with each other, since no other moms or dads existed yet. So subsequently from the concept of having just Adam and Eve to start with, only their children could do it with each other or with their parents. No one else was around. Or were there other families there with Adam and Eve?

    Adam and Eve belonged to tribes who had many people so there is no question of incest.

    The Koran teaches that everybody descended from a single pair of original ancestors, Adam and Eve. In this case, if Adam and Eve didn't commit incest, then Adam and Eve's children would've had to commit incest amongst their siblings; because there would have been nobody else with whom they could have procreated the next generation.

    "Oh mankind! We created you from a single pair of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, so that you may know each other" (Al-Hujurat 49:13)
    "It is He Who created you from a single person, and made his mate of like nature, in order that he might dwell with her (in love)" (Al-A`raf 7:189)

    Ah. So God created many people, not just Adam and Eve? Or, put it this way, where did the people in the tribes come from?

    According to the Genesis story, God created only Adam and Eve, and then they had children.

    I doubt Adam had any genetic defects if he lived to be 930 years old. So, it's doubtful that an incestuous relationship among his children would have enhanced the chances of his children having diseases. I think there were other people at the time - who would have Cain been worried about?

    My post had to do with paars points, not about evolution per se.

    I agreed with your direction, I just thought the conversation was going in a different direction. It's my bad.

    I quote the verses mentioned by you:

    [49:14]O mankind, We have created you from a male and a female; and We have made you into tribes and sub-tribes that you may recognize one another. Verily, the most honourable among you, in the sight of Allah, is he who is the most righteous among you. Surely, Allah is All-knowing, All-Aware.

    The Holy Quran Arabic text with Translation in English text and Search Engine - Al Islam Online

    It does not make a mention of Adam or Eve specifically, it mentions generally of every male and female and of tribes they belong to.

    I quote the next verse given by you:

    [7:190]He it is Who has created you from a single soul, and made therefrom its mate, that he might find comfort in her. And when he knows her, she bears a light burden, and goes about with it. And when she grows heavy, they both pray to Allah, their Lord,saying: ‘If Thou give us a goodchild,we will surely be of the thankful.’

    The Holy Quran Arabic text with Translation in English text and Search Engine - Al Islam Online

    This verse is also general for male and female and their being a pair to prosper and have comfort in the process.
    You may therefore like to please correct your inference.

    Regards
