    Because science is the teaching of man's, who else teaches science other than man.

    There's no two books only one book which is called the bible.
    Bible which only means, books within a book, Bible
    God was before the Universe ever existed. Only until God spoke to have the Universe come into existence.
    But before this, there was no Universe, that's hard to comprehend isn't it.
    To think there was never a Universe until God spoke the universe into coming into existence.

    Psalm 19:
    1. The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
    2. Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge. 3. There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard; 4. yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.
    If God wrote both the books, then God teaches both religion and science. Why would you ignore half of the message? You don't open a book and just gawp at it ─ you set out to understand what you're being told.

    Then surely it's high time you got to understand what God actually did.

    Then perhaps you could at last tell me the process by which you can word a real thing into being.

    Only if that science teaches what God teaches in his word. Otherwise if science does not teach the things of God.

    Then that science becomes man's teachings and not God's teachings.

    All science has to line up to God's teachings and not God's teachings to science.

    Psalm 33:9--"For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast"

    Therefore God spoke, and the Universe appeared and it was done.

    God spoke and it was done.

    Genesis 1:3--"And God said, Let there be light: and there was light,"

    Genesis 1:6--*And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters"

    Genesis 1:24---"And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so"

    Psalm 33:9--"For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast"

    Therefore God spoke and it was done accordingly.

    On the Christian view, the things you say God worded into existence are exactly that, God's words.

    Yet you appear to be afraid to go near them, and to prefer stories to reality.
    Religion becomes man's teachings and not God's teaching. The history of civilization shows this plainly. Otherwise, why are there literally thousands of Christian sects?
    Why? Do you say that God's creation tells lies? Is deceitful? Does not, through Christian eyes, proclaim the glory of God as the psalm says?
    Yet you not only can't be bothered to understand it, you oppose others understanding it.

    Yes, we agree that this is what Genesis says.

    But I asked you to tell me how it was done, the process by which words cause real things to come into being.

    And I look forward to your answer, so I can try it out.

    To me the accuracy of CMBR ( cosmic microwave background radiation ) is a fact to date the universe and earth.
    So, we can ' go with that ' and as Scripture tells us that God by His "GREAT" Power and Strength supplied the necessary abundantly needed dynamic energy to created the material realm of existence for us. - Isaiah 40:26; Jeremiah 32:17.
    When God sends forth His spirit things are created according to Psalms 104:30.

    Just so you know, there were Gentiles that never suffered Noah's flood either.

    Genesis 10:1-5
    1--"Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.

    2 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.

    3 And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.

    4 And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.

    5 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations"

    Many Christians are taught that Noah's flood covered the whole earth.

    For that to be true, Then where did the Gentiles come from in Verse 5.

    If you notice back in Verse 1 this is after the flood of Noah's.

    That's right they are God teachings, God spoke and it happened.

    Man's teachings makes the word of God Void.
    That's why I do not belong to any church or any Religious organizations.
    They are all full of man's teachings.

    If God's word can be blown away by man, that indicates that God is neither very strong nor very bright, no?

    Whatever happened to omnipotent and omniscient, not to mention perfect?

    Or is the real problem that you're afraid of science?

    Assuming there is a God creator that exists in some multiverse prior, She obviously began our universe from the "big bang" and let laws of physics run its course to build the galaxies today. The speaking part.. sorry it's not reality that matter suddenly appears in complexity. The exception being we all live a virtual reality or simulation and nothing is what it is observed to be.

    You meant "does not teach" I think. So coincidentally you wrote the opposite of what you meant ... maybe not coincidentally

    As there is no where in the bible saying that God is All knowing ( omniscient)

    That's another case in point against
    Man's teachings.

    But there is about God being
    ( omnipotent)
    Of having unlimited power; able to do anything. In the book of
    Revelation 19:6--"And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigns"

    If you're omnipotent, one snap of those mighty fingers and you're omniscient, another and you're omnipresent, a third and you're perfect.

    And for bonus, now your wife's happy.

    Now according to man's teachings,
    God is All Knowing.

    For this to be true, Then why didn't God know that the Arch-Angel Lucifer
    Alas Satan, was going to Rebell against him.

    But according to the bible/scriptures, God didn't know.
    So the question is, how is this to work.
    For God to be All Knowing, But yet didn't know that the Arch-Angel Lucifer was going to Rebell against him?
