You also called God Jehovah. I did not know you worshiped the Greek god Zeus.


Jehovah in the Greek transition ( the phonetic rendering of the holy word) the holy Tetragrammaton, means "He Is Becoming" or "He Who Exists" (ο Ων). The ancient Hebrew verb is in its indirectly active non-verbal form means "doing and will do what He wants" to accomplish its purpose.

Δίας οr Ζεύς (Dias or Zefs because "εύ = f " in Greek) is the god of heaven(sky) and thunder. Ζεύς has always been a meteorological god( sky god), controller of lightning(uses as weapon), thunder and rain. He was the strongest and most important of all mythological beings and gods in Greek Mythology. Also is worth mentioning that Ζεύς, is the child of Cronus and Rhea, known for his erotic adventures which fathered many sons and daughters.

Two different Gods.

PS: (" Sorry for going off topic OP")

Peace

Not sure if anyone pointed this out yet, and I'm surprised the OP didn't; the word used in the original scriptures was "yom", which can mean an unspecified period of time - like a million years. "Day" is just an incorrect modern translation, like many others in the bible. What the modern bibles should say is that God created the Earth across 6 eras, not 6 days.

I understand you but nobody can put conditions to God or ask him a performance.

So, basically, we shouldn't trust the bible for any accuracy.

I always knew that.

It's a book written by people scoffing down myrrh and holy 'water'.

In the beginning...... GOd created the heavens......... and the earth
TIME.........................SPACE...........................MATTER

I happen to believe that if God is capable of creating the universe. It
only makes sense that he is capable of getting us a message that
informs us with 100% accuracy. Who are we or who are you to
marginalize how long it would take him? What's the big deal if
the gentleman who built all of this say's he did it in one day?
I damn sure wouldn't doubt him.

The Bible says that everything was created in one day.

actually it says everything was created in 6 days, and on the 7th day god rested.


Since you could not get past the first line of the OP, I would recommend you return and read the second line where the statement is explained.

I've read the bible, actually a couple versions of it.

6 days and on the 7th rested.

I also read the god of the old testament was vindictive and spiteful, he aparantly killed most humans with a vengeful spite by creating a flood.

You really want to talk about a moody god that kills off people en masse due to a temper tantrum?

And you worship that god?


Sorry but I couldn't avoid noticing that you actually believe in God but you just disagree with what he did.

I think He will keep doing what He knows is right and it's up to you to understand and accept it.

Of course, there are many situations where you find yourself confused. Then you just have to trust Him because someone with power to create worlds knows better than us.


You are saying might makes right?

You are half right! As I understand it English has a much
larger vocabulary. So the word y0m in hebrew shouldn't be
taken 0ut 0f c0ntext

You can ask him Whatever you desire but the answer is not usually textual.

No
English has a much smaller vocabulary
There are at least 8 definitions of love in Greek

Day or the word Yom, many different meanings in ancient culture

Clearly you have never read the bible, all the Jews ever did was question and wrestle with God, the whole OT is about that
The whole Old Testament is about God constantly forgiving Israel of sin and failures and evil

But, you are a theologian I guess?
Know everything

Just for your further interest; the "big bang" was first theorized by a Catholic Jesuit priest:

en.m.wikipedia.org...

Issue number two of interest; I look back to the explanation of reality before the "modern era". Many scientist pre-Einstien felt that reality was explained by the "ether" which was a lattice work of particle strings that had no beginning or no conceivable end. Within every "string" was almost everything that is needed for any particular physical reality we exist in. In effect they have a "god potential".

Some have theorized that there are "beings" that can see and manipulate these strings and "play them" to bring certain physical realities into this realm, the realm that we experience with the limited sensors we have.

So if one of these beings want dinosaurs, BAM! then there are dinosaurs. And so on. I am not sure if I believe that really but I find it a fun thing to think about.

a reply to: Raggedyman

YOM


Biblical Hebrew has a limited vocabulary, with fewer words compared to other languages, such as English (which has the largest).[2][a] This means words often have multiple meanings determined by context.[10] Strong's Lexicon yom is Hebrew #3117 יוֹם [11] The word Yom's root meaning is to be hot as the warm hours of a day.

Thus "yom", in its context, is sometimes translated as: "time" (Gen 4:3, Is. 30:8); "year" (I Kings 1:1, 2 Chronicles 21:19, Amos 4:4); "age" (Gen 18:11, 24:1 and 47:28; Joshua 23:1 and 23:2); "always" (Deuteronomy 5:29, 6:24 and 14:23, and in 2 Chronicles 18:7); "season" (Genesis 40:4, Joshua 24:7, 2 Chronicles 15:3); epoch or 24-hour day (Genesis 1:5,8,13,19,23,31) – see "Creationism", below.
