Alright, sorry I've taken so long to reply. And actually i think the exact opposite, the flaw with the young earth creationist is trying to fit the
universal timescale into a timescale constructed through the interpretation of multiple books/writings written hundreds of years apart.
The Biblical picture is one of a world in which evolution has not occurred according to the theory......
...... To suggest that you even need to allow for numerous ages or eras within that 10,000 year span of time is erroneous and shows a gross
misunderstanding of what Creationists teach and believe, and what the Bible states.
Obviously, I do not think creationists believe the last dinosaurs died in 1927. This graph just illustrates when era's would coincide with a
creationist timeline according to current radioactive decay dating methods. Choosing between a 2000+ year old collection of books compiled and
bounded by the majority votes of man made committees or laws observable through nature(your God's creation) as evidence is up to you.
Ugh, I didn't want to play the Bible game but since you insists, no, that is not right at all. The "biblical" creationist view is hardly biblical.
It is a view based on an interpretation of the text, not the text itself. If you wanna go biblical, well you've made a jab at the right guy.
In this worldview, the earth was created complete. Man and woman existed alongside dinosaurs and the rest of the animal kingdom within the first
The earth was not created complete, even according to the bible.
Evening and morning, one day (Gen 1:1-5) Earth was formless and void...God said let there be light, separated light from dark.
Evening and morning, a second day (Gen 1:6-8) Expanse of waters, waters above and below expanse separated. God called expanse heavens.
Evening and morning, a third day (Gen 1:19-13) Water below the heavens(expanse) gathered and dry land appears. Dry land called earth and gathering of
waters, seas. Earth sprouts vegetation.
Evening and morning, a fourth day (Gen 1:14-19) Let there be lights in the heavens to separate day from night. Let them (lights) be for signs and for
seasons and for days and for years. God made two great lights, greater to govern day, lesser to govern night, also made stars..
Evening and morning, a fifth day (Gen 1:20-23) Let waters teem with living creatures and birds fly above the earth in the open of the heavens. God
created every living creature that moves...after their kind ( After their kind?? What kind was there before??)
Evening and morning, sixth day (Gen 1:24-31) Earth bring forth living creatures after their kind. God created man, male and female, in "our" image.
To you i have given every green plant for food.
Seventh day (Gen 2:1-3) God rests.
2nd creation story (!?!? what?? theres two? yah, read up noob)
Gen 2:4 "This is the account of the heavens and earth when they were created, in THE DAY the Lord God made creation."
Gen 2:5-7 No shrub was yet in earth, the lord had not sent rain and there was no man to cultivate ground. Then a mist arose and covered the whole
surface. God formed man from the dust,..breathed life, and man became living
Gen 2:8-9 Lord planted garden in eden and placed man. Out of ground lord caused every tree to grow. Also tree of life and tree of knowledge of good
Gen 2:10 River flowed out of eden to water the garden.
2:15 then lord took man and put him in garden of eden, again….
2:18-20 Not good for man to be alone, out of ground lord formed every beast and bird and man names them.
2:21-25 Alone still no good, female made. Bone of my bones, flesh of my flesh. Naked no shame.
3:1-19 serpent, and tree of good and evil.
3:20 Eve, because she was the mother of all the living.
3:22 **Man has become like one of us** and now, he might stretch out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat and live forever.
3:23 Sent from garden to cultivate the ground from which he was taken.
4:1 Now the man had realations with his wife even and she conveibed and gave birth to cain and she said “ I have gotten a manchild with the help of
So in Gensis 1 plants, water, and beasts are all made before man but in Genesis 2 man comes before plants and beast. He's also placed in the garden
twice without leaving in between, and names all the creatures of the earth before females are even around?
Also in Genisis 1 it is interesting to note that there were evenings and days before god created the governing lights of day and night on the fourth
Point is none of it adds up, theres two conflicting creation stories within the first two chapters. If young earth creationism is your beliefs i
suggest you do some research and find out who and when your beliefs came, because it most certainly isn't from the bible itself.
