Wow. I am staggered.
Did you know that in the ancient script, the word 'Rib' is derived from the word meaning 'life essence', or as we would understand it these days,
You have no place making a post on a forum like this, seeing as you're obviously completely ignorant.
And before you say the predictable, let me tell you that I am a practising Christian. The Biblical book of Genesis isn't supposed to be a literal
scientific guide to how the universe came into being.
How do you explain the astronomical references in the Old testament books of Job, Isaiah etc..? Ezekiel's description of mechanical flying vehicle
containing the emissaries of the Lord..?
What of the Nefilim..? 'Sons of God' on Earth..? 'Watchers'..? The Babylonian aim of building a tower to house a 'Shem' (literal
interpretation of Shem = sky vehicle, not 'name' as commonly mistranslated)..?
In the book of Isaiah (Ch 13):
5 They come from faraway (lands),
from the ends of the heavens—
the LORD and the weapons of his wrath—
to destroy the whole (of Babylonia).
Literal interpretation and application of Scripture can be extremely damaging to the Truth, as espoused by the scriptures themselves:
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you [the priestly nation] have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you, that you shall be no
priest to Me; seeing you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children.
1 Corinthians 15:34 (Amplified)
...For some of you have not the knowledge of God [you are utterly and willfully and disgracefully ignorant, and continue to be so, lacking the sense
of God's presence and all true knowledge of Him]...
Et cetera ad infinitum... Don't think God wants you to disregard the intellect you've been given - check out the parable Jesus taught about using
Matthew 25 vs 15-28
That will do for now.
