"He made the stars also." God spends a day making light (before making
the stars) and separating light from darkness; then, at the end of a
hard day's work, and almost as an afterthought, he makes the trillions
of stars. 1:16
"And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the
earth." Really? Then why are only a tiny fraction of stars visible from
earth? Under the best conditions, no more than five thousand stars are
visible from earth with the unaided eye, yet there are hundreds of
billions of stars in our galaxy and a hundred billion or so galaxies.
Yet this verse says that God put the stars in the firmament "to give
light" to the earth. 1:17
Really over the entire face of the earth we can only see 5,000 stars that figure sounds pretty small. light travels infinitely through space to so we
are constantly being bombarded by the light from more and more different stars every day eventually that would be all of them.
God commands us to "be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth,
and subdue it: and have dominion over ... every living thing that moveth
upon the earth." This verse is used to justify Christian opposition to
birth control, to concern for the environment, and to animal rights. The
earth was made for humans, and they can do as they damn well please with
Leviticus 25:23-24 - The land must not be sold permanently, because the land is mine and you are but aliens and my tenants. Throughout the country
that you hold as a possession, you must provide for the redemption of the land.
Ezekial 34:2-4 - Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel; prophesy and say to them: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Woe to the
shepherds of Israel who only take care of themselves! Should not shepherds take care of the flock? You eat the curds, clothe yourselves with the wool
and slaughter the choice animals, but you do not take care of the flock. You have not strengthened the weak or healed the sick or bound up the
injured. You have not brought back the strays or searched for the lost. You have ruled them harshly and brutally.
Isaiah 24:4-6 - The earth dries up and withers, the world languishes and withers, the exalted of the earth languish. The earth is defiled by its
people; they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statutes and broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore a curse consumes the earth; its people must
bear their guilt. Therefore earth's inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left.
evil people have always tried to twist the bibles words to get what they want.
All animals were originally herbivores. Tapeworms, vampire bats,
mosquitoes, and barracudas -- all were strict vegetarians, as they were
created by God. But, of course, we now know that there were carnivorous
animals millions of years before humans existed. 1:30
male mosquitoes only eat nectar and live very well, your forgetting were talking about god he can do what he wants with one thought he could turn an
animal from herbaceous to carnivore.
God makes the animals and parades them before Adam to see if any would
strike his fancy. But none seem to have what it takes to please him.
(Although he was tempted to go for the sheep.) After making the animals,
God has Adam name them all. The naming of several million species must
have kept Adam busy for a while. 2:18-20
Adam was supposed to live forever if he didn't fall into sin, so yeah it could have taken a real long time but it wouldn't have mattered.
God's clever, talking serpent. 3:1
what am i to disprove here? or are you just trying to be witty. OH BOY!!! your "CRAFTY"!!!
