What I mean is, the verse I quoted before Genesis 1:30 specifically tells us about land creatures, it doesn't mention sea creatures. So we are kind

I would suggest that megalodons probably ate meat. I would also suggest that the "original sin" thing never took place. I believe this to be a
prudent way of looking at things.
Does it matter right now what sea creatures before the flood ate, not really. It would be kind of neat to know for sure but focusing on that dilema
takes your focus off the real message of the Bible, Jesus Christ. So it's cool to throw around ideas about sea creatures and discuss it but lets not
get bogged down in it.
Right, but the Bible is supposedly the word of God. Well, there are numerous
in the Bible - not to mention all of the
cruelty and violence
. It leaves one wondering whether it was written by a God or by simple
As far as the people who physically wrote the Bible, right they weren't there. Some people who did write parts of the Bible saw visions and/or were
transported to the future to see it.
Not necessarily. Since this is unlikely, and there is no proof of this happening either with ancient or modern man, I must assume that with no
evidence, this didn't take place - I believe that the alternative happened - the stories were completely fabricated.
But if you are going to believe the Bible, then you believe all of it or you might as well believe none of it. It's not a pick and choose book. I
like that part, but I don't like that part so I choose not to believe that part.
So I believe it all. And on the basis of that, the Bible tells us that God inspired the writers of the Bible with what He wanted them to write.
Genesis is credited to being written by Moses, so that means God spoke to him as to what to write down.
I agree that one should either believe all or none, but to believe all of the Bible appears to be an ignorant thing to do, with all of the conflicts
that the Bible has with modern human knowledge. It simply appears that, at least most of it, was written as a fable by humans who were intelligent
for their time, but their testimony is not withstanding the test of time.
To me, anyways.
