As you said, the big bang was an explosion of light from emptiness.
Interesting, I did not know that about Sam Harris.
In the past when I've tried things like meditation, or inducing an out of body experience, I either fall asleep or it doesn't work. It's almost impossible for me to clear my mind so I've given up.

what about "the waters" everyone skips over this...what waters?
You know you are wrong, I sourced it, you can't dispute it, you simply are more interested in ignorant hatred than truth. I really don't care if you believe what the Bible says, I simply do not understand the need yourself and others have to lie to propagate your hatred.
Yet even that verse can have several different interpretations attached to it. Like I said, God severely limited himself when he put himself into a book and used words and language to reveal himself.

That's correct. It will not. Only ignorant people who prefer to not be educated on the subject are confused. I posted a source already, it's not MY opinion, it's proven fact. The Bible was not written in English, the original texts contain no mention of Unicorns. The King James version uses the English word Unicorn because the animal named in the original texts are extinct. King James is one of the worst translations, and it's the only one who uses that word.
At the time English travelers were reporting sightings of actual one horned antelopes, which is why the KJ version uses it possibly. It's shoddy translation work, because the beast in the Bible is clearly oxen, not equine/antelope.

But anyway, I do feel it's silly to criticize people or call them ignorant, when the whole damn thing is hypothetical to begin with. I mean the word unicorn is used in the scriptures, so that doesn't make folks who quote that ignorant. It means the folks who wrote the translation were ignorant. If that's the case, then what does that say about the rest of it?
Want to know what was not lost in translation?
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Maybe God wants us to focus on what matters, not Unicorns.
