I would say this concept could apply to a lot of things. If you have intercourse, and have a baby, did you create it?

I feel, though, that a likely answer would be something along the lines of "No, because you didn't create the water in the first place" or "no, because you didn't invent sperm" and so forth. It's kind of a cop-out answer.

Here's a thought to tinker, if you take water and freeze it, did YOU create ice?


Transmutation is not creation.

Which came first, the Chicken or the Egg?

Well done! You have identified a vital difference between the scientific and Creationist narratives.

According to Creationists, the chicken came first, having been created on the fifth or possibly the fourth day of Creation.

According to science, the egg came first and chickens evolved later.

I'm surprised that the experts on neither side of the controversy seen to realize how vital this is.

Even better, a chicken hatching from its own egg. That's basically what this creator thing comes down to.

No, that's the Big Bang theory.

Transmutation is not creation.

And Ice is not a transmutation of water, your point?

God made God. Simple and to the point.


WHAT is god then?

It is, actually. You are changing the state of matter by manipulating its energy, not conjuring it out of thin air.

Much like a Phoenix, yes. But evidence seems to suggest an increasing rate of expansion, rather than deceleration. I sometimes imagine the big bang as the universe blossoming from the top of an inconceivably massive torus, and that the increase in expansion is our universe sliding down the exterior slope like cosmic fondue.

Did the OP go all Keyser Söze on us? It's hard to run a thread when there are questions asked that are too difficult for them to answer.

I'm here. I've just been busy on the social issues forum.

Also, this thread has become more a debate between sides than people asking for the creationist view. Of course, I think Agree2Disagree may be more qualified to answer from the creationist side.

I saw that there is a thread (several, in fact) for people who want to know more about evolution. Well, though science fascinates me, my training is as a theologian. I thought it'd be nice to have a thread answering questions people have about Creationism. Fire away and I'll do my best to explain everything to you.


Why does your creator enjoy watching people suffer 24/7?

Poor nutrition causes nearly half (45%) of deaths in children under five - 3.1 million children each year.


Those children should have chosen a different path, I guess?

No, their parents should have - such as the one of feeding them properly.

Smh

Nice try averting the issue of starving children.

Good!
Glad you are still here...shows moxie...I like moxie.

Care to answer my previous questions? I am curious to see the answers from a creationist viewpoint as I am incapable of looking at it from the magic man perspective.

Thanks in advance!
