[I put this in Aliens and UFOs
Forum, 'cause, if you consider the subject matter...]
Here's one small tidbit from 'The Good Book' that deserves closer scrutiny - directly from Genesis:
16 God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set
them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that
it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day."\
(Man was not created until the 6th day. (So, this is not a fallible translation by man))
This passage was authored (or interpreted/transcribed) by someone with a very specific
viewpoint - one who had a very primitive view of the
'Universe', that is to say, extremely limited - to be blunt, from the perspective of Earth being the center of everything, and with nowhere near the
understanding of the solar system & cosmos that we have today!
I mean, we know
how the earth was created with the rest of the solar system and universe - to suggest that the earth was created before
the 'lights' were thrown in the sky (sun, moon, and stars) shows a complete lack of understanding of how things were created.
You have to at least get the beginning right, if you expect people to swallow the rest of the bull#.
Don't fight the science, man.
