I guess the next thing to says is Divine Intervention or Tall Tales. Many events in the bible violate the natural laws. Global Deluge, incest with the
few inhabitants, rivers parting and food being replicated.
Well, what if the answers are plaining infront of you. It is a matter of perspective.
The Great Flood, Myth or Fabrication?
EdenKaia offered this link, which details "GLOBAL FLOOD STORIES"
Now, to Noah, specifically, was not the flood a GLOABL Occurance? And since the Bible IS FOLLOWING ADAM's Line, and it's now Noah's turn at the
plate, so to speak, would the story, being told to Moses by God, be also specific to Noah. All he knew was gone.
But that is all he knew. The Mountains Flooded over, and everything was washed away.
What if Noah came from a quaint village 400 feet below the present day Med Sea? It would be Global to Noah Specifically.
And to the Lessor extent, it seeminly was Global, because most ancient cultures have these tales as we have noted above.
And what of this incest? What's up with all this incest? Everyone would look like they could play a role in Deliverance!
1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our
likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea,
and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all
the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the
1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God
created he him; male and female created he them.
1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful,
and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have
dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the
air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
1:29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing
seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every
tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to
you it shall be for meat.
1:30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the
air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein
there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and
it was so.
1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it
was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth
Why is there any need to be drawn into the discussion of Incest? There where Thousands and Thousands of people created on the Sixth Day. People on
this planet prior to Adam and Eve eliminating the Incest, un-informed people, wish to point to.
As for Parting waters and such, when you get a change, watch Exodus Decoded on the History Channel when it reairs. (Nothing showing in the next few
weeks but keep checking)
It is a fine example of Science being used to confirm the Biblical Account of the Exodus, and all that goes with it. The Parting of the Reed Sea,
Akmoses-(Brother of Moses), the Localtion of Mt Sinia, All the Plagues, and a Corrected Timeline. This would tend to answer your lack of proof!
There's no way to prove these divine events as fact. The bible is the only recorded proof and you can take its word for it or not.
The last thing I want address it the divine intervention/supernatural topic. If a Christian or Jew accepts these events as true, why do you
think God has put an end to them?
An example of GOD's INTERVENTION Today!
The Sixth Day War.
As for Miracles, they happen all the time. Many have the gift of healing, and do so more than just sometimes. I will acknowledge, Many have the Gift
of Scam, but that should not deminish God answering Prayer through Miracles (legitamately).
