I don't know why you keep claiming this is my argument, but its not and that's not essentially what i said at all.
Your post, which I quoted, is pretty clear -- because the Bible doesn't explicitly state that evolution was God's mechanism for "creating" man,
evolution doesn't exist.
There are many reasons why evolution cannot successfully be merged with the accounts of the bible and ive already stated many of those already.
For one we were created in God's image. Secondly God made us from the dirt and then breathed the breath of life into man, which doesn't sound like
evolution was involved at all if you have any common sense. Thirdly God isn't a God of gaps, he created all beings in there full form, and then gave
them life. I could continue to go on as to why evolution doesn't fit to be apart of genesis but i'd be wasting me time, since your not even a
christian but merely a guy here to argue with me so you can try and trick other christians into accepting evolution and genesis. There are also
numerous verses which totally contradict any type of evolutionary process ever taking place.
You can keep spouting this over and over again, but as long as you're willing to state that parts of the Bible should be taken literally and others
should be taken figuratively, then it's simply a matter of your opinion that evolution must not exist. Unless, of course, you can show us some kind
of rubric handed down from God himself about which passages should be taken literally and which should be taken figuratively. Got one? Didn't think
No im not the only one, any bible scholar or theologian will tell you this.
Yes, and they'll often disagree about which are meant to be taken literally… or not as literally… or figuratively… or however you want to split
hairs over whether something is factual or not. It's one of the things that's always amusing when debating Christians in these forums -- if you get
more than one of them in the same thread, they can rarely agree on anything tenet of faith other than Christianity is the "true" religion.
Please do because so far you have been unable to achieve that even once.
Again, your reading comprehension skills seem to be lacking. In the posts of yours that I quoted, you went from "Genesis to literal" to "Well…
except for Genesis 2… that's not *as* literal." One doesn't need to be a genius to smell the distinct aroma of male bovine fecal matter and
The bible of course, i'd have to pick that any day over 33rd degree freemasonry and the secular brain-washing religion of evolution that's
full of hidden agendas to destroy man kind.
All you're doing is picking an even older form of brainwashing. It's amusing that you're equating evolution with brainwashing. I can go see
objective evidence for evolution whenever I want, independent of a book that tells me it must be true. You claim that the Bible is the ineffable word
of God, and you know this because the Bible tells you so.
As for the saying the bible is not valid because its a product of man, well that's really a poor argument to use on your part and does not
discredit the claims of the bible.
Men can, and do, distort retellings of events to suit their needs. To claim that something that has been translated and recompiled as many times as
the Bible hasn't been tampered with in the complete absence of objective corroborating evidence is ludicrous.
