1. Dinosaurs where made on the day that animals were made.

2. The bible mentions that adam and eve had other kids. Read genesis before you want to argue about it.

3. People in the Genesis lived to be 900+ years old. The book covers a very long time span.


Hey! Incest is wrong, according to the bibile :3.. .I think..


It is wrong, but God didn't say it was wrong until Leviticus. It was necessary at that time because that is all they had.

*cough* scientology *cough, cough*

My big issue with Genesis is the whole "tree falling in the woods" argument. If you create the multiverse and no one is there to see it, you could say whatever you wanted and no one could ever argue. The whole thing is kinda weird. Like all the angels that were basically Beta testers that didn't make it into the commercial release. There is a lot that God doesn't tell Adam in the tutorial, but that part is kinda understandable, because knowledge came post-apple and the fact that Adam understood what the number seven was amazes me.

I like how God runs all the animals by Adam and Adam is like "DOES NOT WANT". The whole time Mr Omnipotent knew Adam wasn't a furry, but he does that anyway, then pulls a penny out of Adam's ear and says "Look, boobies!" and they run around naked.

Genesis is like what Hunter S. Thompson might write after staying up for a week watching teletubbies and eating nothing but pancakes and acid.

Needless to say, it is my favorite book in the bible!

thats freakin genius. you just related genesis to a video game hahaha.

argument 3: someone mentioned that the people in genesis did live up to 900+ years...cause you know, thats more plausible than any historic argument against it =P

actually.... human life was designed to be immortal.. but thier was that one screw up... basicly the only that could be made... an Adam and Eve made it together... hence.... what was to be immortal... slowly drained mroe and more with each generation, for human genetics only recreates so many times, at least now it does... and we know why that occured.... caus of that that first screw up of the first two humans... oddly enough im not sure but i think Adam and Eve proly lived to see all their orignal kids die prolly since they had longer life then them... may be mistaken...


oh and that multiverse crack you made... its called creation... mutliverse ive only heard from that show .. "Riddick".... but anyways...... and when people screw up their kids tend to suffer for it... litterally.

i have to say that this issue have been debated for almost 100 yrs ... but none have won ..
because there is always 2 sides of the story .. and i dont believe that a person will believe both of that sides. He will choose what is applicable to his belief. So that's why none have won .. because .. they argue but they both cant prove anything ... Im a catholic .. but im not 100% sure bout the bible. If it actually fell from the sky .. maybe ill believe it for sure. But we cant deny the things that science cannot prove ... all these beliefs where all made by human ... either one went to a mountain and talked to God, or someone who finds explanation scientifically.... it all depends on what we believe ... and the bible is just one arguing point.

ok.. if you want proof of stuff... look at history... seriously you can see glimpses of magic.. and where thiers magic... thiers proof of God in the fact that things exhist without explanation... il give you one point to reference... really the only one ive bothered to look at or have found but its during the war of 1812... the Britts had gotten into one of the citeys and were ransacking... burning... pillaging.. .quite possibly a thier was rape .... during this ruckus out of no where from the sea came a freaking storm with a tornado in it... it went right down the main street as rains gushed out of the sky plucking pillaging troopers into the air... they got the freak out of their seeing it as the wrath of God.. which you know, well whos to say who had conjured taht... although as far as the storm its said it caused surprising little damage... except for the stuff left in the streets that had been abondoned during the pillagin gone awry..

although believing even when its difficult due to its incredulity is called Faith and is treasured for a reason.. that is because God made man without knowledge for a reason... weve been ment to be trusting and loving all along... and knowledge has merely meessed us up severely... oh welll.. were getting thier ever so slowly at times...

so out of all the evil deeds occuring at the time, your god chose to save those villagers from the britts. who knew god was so patriotic. was it the same when hitler and the jews? so after so many died he decided its time to end it and gave americans the atomic bomb?

look, at most ill entertain the idea that a creator exists. but then to have a god controlling world as we live in, controlling destiny while giving us free will at the same time. o and im not bashing no offense if i came off strong. most of you know how i am already anyway =P

The bible isn't a walk in sesame street. Why would you share your treasure with those who doesn't treasure it with you? Isn't it a wonder why certain things are kept in parables. Only those who seek will find.

The things that are written in the holy bible are all most certainly false (old testament)
even the authors knew that.
But if you think of all those things as metaphora you will see the truth behind all that.
Everything can be right if you look at it from a different position!

1. The seven days.

Not ONLY man was created. LIFE was created. Just that, man, was the highest being and 'proud work of god' that they put man. Long story.

Anyone wants me to really elaborate my feelings, please, type :

saint716, please explain.

thanks
