well rather than allow myself to fall for flimsily defined astral dreamplane motifs
(which may or may not be true)
does anyone reading this have any knowledge or past experience dealing with or actually being a person who says things like:
“god created all the animals”
“the world was created out of waters which separated to create land”
i wonder how long it took god, how god did it, and if there’s any evidence?
hmm… i wonder why every bit of evidence the genuine scientific community has ever gathered points to a rocky lump that began to emit gases that condensed into water on the surface of a rock ball..
and i wonder if the whole stupid believer cultist community is getting in the way of understanding a genuine higher intelligence and the real story of evolution..
are believers actually semi-intelligent quasi wookie cave people?July 20, 2007 at 10:06 pm #22895
“i wonder how long it took god, how god did it, and if there’s any evidence?”
God created the world in 6 days. On the 7th day He rested. God spoke and it happened. There is no evidence.
“hmm… i wonder why every bit of evidence the genuine scientific community has ever gathered points to a rocky lump that began to emit gases that condensed into water on the surface of a rock ball..”
That’s because God is perfect and He isn’t going to supply any proof for His existence. He created the world in such a way that it could be extrapolated backwards.
Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Neither. They were both created at the same time. However, if a researcher came along and studied the chicken and the egg, he would determine that the chicken laid the egg. That’s the thing with God, he doesn’t leave evidence of His passing. He creates perfect.
When God created the world, he created a world in every stage of being: from birth to decay. In an instant, he created a world where there was already poop on the ground.
Some would say this contradicts free choice. Because, under this reasoning, the world could really be 5 minutes old and all of our memories implanted. But God created man on the 6th day and he rested on the 7th.
Some important things to realize… 1) There is no proof that God created the world. 2) The world God created works under rational laws and is self consistent. 3) We are not animals, but special created by God for a purpose.July 24, 2007 at 9:51 pm #22897July 25, 2007 at 7:43 pm #22899
Have you ever heard of grafting? It’s when you take a branch from one tree and splice it onto another tree. You can always see the splice if you look close enough.
However, not with God. He created the Earth in 6 days (+1 for rest). He created an Earth with a back story of His devising. Then he introduced man to see humanity unfold.
I think the story of our moon is amazing. Check out “The Universe” series to hear about 2 planets colliding while the Earth was still molten. This amazing collision created our moon.
However, this collision never happened and the moon was really created in an instant. It was created with all of the evidence to support this back story already in place.
You may ask, what’s the difference if it took millions of years or 6 days to set the stage for humanity. I believe the Bible is true and not just a book of morals. The 10 commandments are not called the 10 Tips. The Bible says 7 days, so that’s what it is.
By faith… Believing without seeing. It’s an important concept.July 27, 2007 at 6:50 am #22901
