When it refers to one day is like a thousand years, Thats because god created time.... He existed before and outside the universe was formed, He created the firmament, And separated it between the heavens and heaven*.
As for god making man in OUR image, It refers to the Holy trinity, God the Father, God the Son, and God The holy spirit, He made us in the image of him, He put his spirit in US, and the father lives inside us, Cause we are his spirit.
Just clearing up when you got a little confused there.,
GOD is not an elien, Or a ancient astronaught, He is not a ET that billions of years split his dna and erased mankinds sub concious, I wont sit here and listen to this trot man...... Its garbage, If you have a problem with the bible its not our problem its yours, So deal with it

"mutated" offspring are coerced into breeding and can only exist in those forms because humans allow them. It does not happen in nature, so why do so many people sell out to thinkin it did?

No. How do you even get that by what I said?
All of matter is made of the same stuff. Star dust is irrelevant here. Star dust is just lower in the hierarchy.
We are all made of ordinary matter. Light that is compressed. And that light decays like anything else in the universe. it spreads out, dies, and becomes diluted throughout the universe.
There is nothing special about this. What would be different if we were made of star dust? Star dust is made of matter, which we also are made of. And all matter dies. All matter decays into light. All light dies. All light decays into the very fabric of space time itself. Even spacetime itself dies. Dark energy decays, the universe collapses, and it all comes down onto itself.

Buttercookie. There is only one God,
Sin is a disease
The moon god of Ur and first son of Enlil, the Sumerian god of earth and air. As ‘lord of the calendar’, his cult exhibited monotheistic tendencies, since it was Sin ‘who determines the destinies of distant days’ and whose ‘plans no god knows’. According to Genesis, Abraham hailed from Ur by way of Harran, both cities devoted to the moon god. In Arabia, Sin was also worshipped under various titles and it is likely that Mount Sinai, first mentioned in Hebrew texts about 1000 BC, was connected with moon-worship. Other names for Sin were Suen and Nanna. Addressed in prayer as ‘perfect in lordiness’, Sin was associated with fertility, ‘lord of the cowherders’, the nether world, and kingship. A myth of Nanna's wooing of Ningal, the mother of goddess Inanna, relates how the god is repulsed until he has filled the rivers with the early flood, made the grain grow in the field, and caused fishes to be in the marshes, reeds along the banks of rivers, stags in the forest, plants in the desert, honey and wine in the orchards, cress in the garden, and long life in the palace. Only when all this bounty occurs is Ningal prepared to come and live with Nanna in his lofty dwelling on top of the ziggurat in Ur.
Actually we are now new creations in christ, When he died on the cross, Mankinds spirit was quickened and restored, Christ now lives within us, We are not GOD, but his spirit anew abides in us.

This whole post idea was nothing but to garner stars and flags from those who hate the bible. Good job.
I wouldnt suggest believing in any religion that says that most of the worlds people will burn in hell for simply believing in the another faith. Most people are raised in their faith and believe it with the entirety of their heart. This goes for all religions and not just christianity. Although I do believe a lot of the moral teachings in the christian bible are great, I do not believe that everything in the bible is the word of god, as it claims to be. I do not wish to offend any christians. I was once a christian and still hold many of the beliefs close to my heart. However, christians need to be much more open-minded about questions asked of the bible and the possibilities that lie within the text.

That's very true. I remember reading somewhere that the word for Satan actually meant "obstacle," and that Satan wasn't so much a force/person who was against God and more a description of things that are in your way as you try to understand things or get places.
Wheel on your wagon broken? It's Satan's work. Doubting your faith? It's Satan's work. I think the power of Satan was greatly widened by the Christians, ironically making them the real Satanists, since others don't believe in Satan.
