Hi Novacs4Me and John Matrix & other 'zionist-biblical' creationists on this thread:
You don't have to be a 'bible' believer to believe in a Creator or in Creation; you could be one of 6-Billion people who DO NOT believe in YHWH the
clan god of post Exilic Judaiesm ('the clan-god of the bible') as the 'creator' of the universe.
I for one cannot see why people automatically jump on the Yahweh bandwagon and keep spewing out the 2 Creation Myths in Genesis as factual science
(Gen 1:1 to 2:4a, creation myth #1, and Gen 2:4b through end of Gen chapter 4:26 = creation myth #2) when for one thing, the two creation myths of the
Jews don't even match.
We will forego the other pre-scientific thinking of these semi nomads who believed in talking snakes and domes over a flat earth and the impossibly
arrogant and thoroughly racist idea of a 'chosen people' (i.e. a master race) that has the monopoly on 'truth'. The fact is that there are more
than 6,000 creation myths out there in the world today, most of them far older than the adaptations of the post Exilic Hebrew writers who re-wrote
many of them for their own self-serving ends.
And anyone who thinks that Plants, Trees, Herbs etc. were all created BEFORE the sun, moon, and the stars (Gen 1:5-6) is not in touch with the tenets
of modern science in the 21st century who hold to things such as photosynthesis, of which the ancient Israelites had the slightest notion. They were
too busy exterminating Amalekites on Yahweh's explicit orders !!
