Hello I have reciently read the first book of the bible or Genesis as it is called, after a thorough evaluation I cannot say many things that could
prove a fight for the idea of creationism. I was a skeptic going in but decided I would give it a shot, but after my review I became much more
skeptical. I will lay some evidence for why this is in a minute, but first I want to say why I conducted this thorough reading, everywhere I went I
seen christians so illiterate of there own religion, most never read the bible and a startiling number did not know any other authorities in the bible
exept Jesus. This was very odd because the one thing they were good at was giving donations most gave a large share to the church. Now to critics I
will say Genesis is the only verse I have read and these conclusions are based off of my beliefs.
1. Six Days of Creation and the Sabbath, I am not going to use a specific quote but I would like to bring up a startiling argument. HOW COULD THIS BE
DOCUMENTED, now according to my bibles fact section this book was put together in the time period 1225-1000 B.C. which has been proven by many
scholars. It was gathered from oral traditions and stories of tribal peoples. Now how in the hell could they know an accurate depiction of an event
that happened millions according to the bible or billions according to carbon dating, years ago. The truth is that would be impossible onless Adam and
Eve knew to carry it down from their generation, but if that were the case you are looking at a complete warp of the situation.
2. Six Days of Creation and the Sabbath, Many more questions without using a specific quote arise, firstly how could adam and eve communicate and dont
say GOD. Now in verse 20 of this book you hear "let the waters bring forth swarms of living creatures and let birds fly above the earth across the
dome of the sky." Now according to modern day scientists birds were not a living lifeform until well after the extinction of the dinasours which
brings up another compelling point unless this is an acronym which I doubt, because this verse goes on and on about birds there wings and such. Birds
were not developed 6 billion years ago not even 2 billion, a definate falsehood. I should also add on top of that 24 also clams of cattle made during
the development of earth. But of course more unlikely than that is its depiction of humankind. Now the idea of evolution which has been proven for the
most part relly disproves "So god created humankind in his image" and replaces it with a more realistic ideal that we decend from apes. Now what
relly proves the idea of evolution is evidence, whereas the bible has no evidence what so ever evolution has increasing skulls with more and more
human characteristics. As far as I am conserned Evolution is definatly the right answer and this disproves this fight of orgins.
3. Six Days of Creation and the Sabbath, Now there is something impossible creating something out of nothing that is the very thing that the bible
stipulates god did always following with, "and god saw that it was good". Fine you can believe this but if there was no matter in the universe to
start with how could there be matter all of a sudden.
I could give you alot more examples of my reading of the first verse but I am on a time constraint so I will end with, where is the evidence for your
ideals, where is the evidence of gods existience, where is the evidence of a great flood or a original people. where is the evidence that anything in
Genisis is true, I will tell you where NOWHERE.
