    My guess is that it's not a mouse, but @101G seems to me like someone who has an invisible friend.

    Except there was no "first day" back then. The Earth was a product of accretion and there is no one day that one could ever point to as when the Earth was done being formed.

    The truth be told, the earth is still constantly undergoing change and being formed yet to this today. This whole idea that creation is a past event, doesn't seem to ever look out the window at each new day. It's kind of like thinking the earth is flat, imagining the earth is static.

    Nope
    Do you know what a firmament is?

    Did you know that the moon is not a light source but that the stars are? The author of that account obviously didn't.
    Tidal effects are only there when the sun is shining?
    That part doesn't make any sense, can you rephrase?
    Nope. Look up precession.
    Look up pedigree. (I guess you mean perigee.)
    Nope. Look up eclipse.
    There is no science in the bible. You may be fooled into thinking so because you know nothing about science, as you have clearly demonstrated.
    So, if you stand by "but as said, this is a bible study, not a astronomy class", you'll concede that your knowledge about science isn't adequate to proclaim that there is science in the bible and you'll ask the mods to move your OP to Scriptural Debates.
    Otherwise you'll get more lectures in astronomy than you can shake a stick at.

    I see. So all magical things said in ancient mythologies are basically taking about quantum mechanics.
    And you did not even get quantum part of your claim right here.

    What are the odds of him getting the quantum mechanics right when he could not even get the Newtonian physics right. Did you know that the Sun orbits the Earth?

    No of course not.

    But looking at the way your, er, ideas are developing, I think I should leave you to it.

    There is NOTHING of what you are claiming in the 2nd and 3rd paragraph (tides, perigee, apogee, orbits whatever) in the quotes you provided in the first paragraph.
    Making things up from thin air does not an argument make dear friend.

    Definitely not, science is about discovery, hypothesising and testing and then repeating.
    Didn't the Bible believe in the Firmament?

    It is hard to tell with so many literalists out there.

    GINOLJC, to all,
    I did, and the Joke is on you if you cannot comprehend the knowledge in the web site. did you not read the site I gave to show that the Flood was worldwide?

    what's wrong, your views have been countered? that's ok, keep on trying.

    No you didn't. You posted a link to a lying site that is the opposite of scientific.

    I posted an image that refuted your Flood myth. You had no answer.

    No, it is a date that has been determined by Biblical scholars. You know, people that actually study the Bible for a living. You should try a bit of studying some day.
