    That supports his original claim that the Bible is not a science book.

    I wonder how all the people that knew about Abraham did it before the Bible was written?

    It is unclear if all of your examples are consistent with the discoveries made using science. Considering that you have made the correct claim that the Bible is not a science book, your position here is unclear.

    Vague verses can often be reinterpreted to match reality. By your standards the Qur'an is correct. Have you not heard it when Muslims play this game?

    I'm sorry, but I don't see the significance in the fact that you think some of the writers of the bible appear to have made some some vaguely accurate predictions about how things work. People have been making vaguely accurate predictions about things since the beginning of history.

    I'm not saying that. Read my OP again.

    I'm saying "I can't help but see the science in it." And, now I'm giving a list of that.

    I'm marvelling at all that!

    I'm not talking about the Qu'ran. I haven't read the Qu'ran.

    This is about the Bible.

    That is a very interesting take on the position on pork recorded in the Bible. My view had largely been based on the diseases that come from poorly cooked pork. Though I have heard some speculate that the similarity in the taste of human flesh and pork may have had something to do with it as well.

    Seeing that you're new around these parts I'll cut you some slack, but as a reminder to the others, for the millionteenth time :D the origin of life, be it through the hand of god, abiogenesis, or the rutabaga man, has absolutely nothing to do with evolution. Biological evolution is ONLY concerned with change within life forms. FULL STOP!....PERIOD!

    So when you bring up the issue of origins with evolution every pro-evolutionist on the forum pretty much shuts down, with the sometime exception of newbies such as yourself, whom we want to help.

    BTW, Welcome aboard.

    So, there is nothing substantial in your thread other than the point that you think your interpretation of Genesis is confirmed by science. No chance that interpretation was driven by the fact that the scientific findings are known to you and you are just back filling?

    Cherry picking does not mean that science is in the Bible. If you want to take that stance you have to look at the failures as well.

    Maybe you have a very low threshhold of "marvelling".

    That does not matter, you are making the same claims that Muslims are. By your standards the Qu'ran is correct. You are not being consistent.

    Excellent point. I would like to say you beat me to it, but I have been trying to figure out what his point is and had not considered the other implications yet.

    Sorry Skwim....I mistook you for the other one.

    Okay, back to your post. You were saying....

    the origin of life, be it through the hand of god, abiogenesis, or the rutabaga man, has absolutely nothing to do with evolution. Biological evolution is ONLY concerned with change within life forms. FULL STOP!....PERIOD blah....blah....blah......


    Uhhhhhm.....

    What's that got to do with this thread?

    Posturing is such an important cornerstone of your posts. You seem to spend more time on that than you do on substance. Given that you have yet to provide some point for this thread, that fact is glaring.

    Gosh. You have been doing this for so long, I am surprised that you would make such a rookie mistake.

    You mentioned Darwinists right at the start implying some connection to evolution. If not, then why direct this post to those you seem to imply have an opinion on evolution?

    You mistook Popeye for a rabbit? Interesting. So there could be some glaring errors that you have mistaken for some kind of evidence of something and really be entirely wrong.

    Let me get this clear.
    So.....you're saying, when you guys don't want a subject, you try your best to trash the thread?

    That, there's a clique of you old members, who purposefully shut down subjects you don't like?

    In other words, I'm being graciously given a warning - considering I'm a newbie?

    Is that what you're saying here?

    The creation myth in Islam is basically the same.. like the ten commandments and golden rule.
