If any fundamentalist Christians out there have some answers, that would be just dandy. I have a bunch of questions but I feel I have to begin with one of the most basic. Where did Cain's wife come from?
Which came first, Adam or the animals and was Eve created at the same time or later?
What did God make the animals out of?
When did the plants show up?
Were their multiple Gods at first?
Just a couple off the top of my head. I am not slamming anyone, I am just asking for some clarity and I do have many more questions. I am sure I will not be the only person with some questions about these stories. I know there are enough members on ATS that believe the bible is a true account of things that have gone down so they are the ones I am really hoping can provide some answers.
God is not the Creator, claims academic
The notion of God as the Creator is wrong, claims a top academic, who believes the Bible has been wrongly translated for thousands of years.
Professor Ellen van Wolde, a respected Old Testament scholar and author, claims the first sentence of Genesis "in the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth" is not a true translation of the Hebrew...
...She said she eventually concluded the Hebrew verb "bara", which is used in the first sentence of the book of Genesis, does not mean "to create" but to "spatially separate".
The first sentence should now read "in the beginning God separated the Heaven and the Earth"

They are loaded questions If you are to silly enough to answer these straight forward, shows how you follow this crap blindly.
Plants on day 3, The sun on day 4 .. you seriously do not see any logical issues with this ?
The Adam / eve / animals question is a classic because for some reason there is 2 different creation myths in Genesis.
Care to explain the use of "gods of Egypt", "God of gods", and "gods" in the following verses ? Psalm 136:2, Psalm 82, Exodus 12:12.
All of you that give your generic answers are showing your complete blind faith in a book with major holes in it.

Forget holes. I think the Bible is just as it should be.
Was your video supposed to answer the OP’s questions?
That man in the video is not the Bible, so believing him would be in your words “silly”.
