You just completely ignored the point I made. Your reply has nothing to do with what I posted. This isn't about the "6 Day Creation" period. This is about the Timeline in the Bible that starts with Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago and onward. Here, look at the Biblical people chart that begins in 4,000 B.C. with "Adam": http://www.startagain.org/images/Creati
The fact that humans walked the Earth 400,000 years ago obliterates the "Adam and Eve" fairy tale.
It was answered. Please re-read it or ignore it. Either way, my view on it is in there.
The 6000yr timeline was introduced by Ussher in the 17th Century. The 6 days can be looked at, and is in many believer's view, a spiritual accounting, not a literal 24hr day clock. For many Christians, jews, & believers since the beginning never have looked at the 6 days as literal. Since God can create all things at once, and is within and outide of time, it's just silly to believe in the 24hr/6day timeline in a literal sense.
There are a few out there that do believe it though. So, like I said, you're free to believe whatever interpretation you want. But, upon reading the Bible, and knowing God created all things at once, I simply cannot view the 6 days in any light other than a spiritual reference, not literal.
I went back and re-read your post again just for your sake, and yep, it still says the same thing it said when I read it the first time.
Again, for the THIRD time, this has NOTHING to do with the creation of the "Heavens and the Earth". Forget about the period up to "Genesis 1:3". Whether you interpret that period to be billions of years is completely irrelevant.
This has to do with the creation of "Adam and Eve" and the TIME AFTER "Adam and Eve". This means that I'm referring to the beginning of the HUMAN
Timeline, beginning with Genesis 1:27
-- So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
If you look at the chart posted at the link below, you can see that "Adam" lived from 3950 B.C. to around 3020 B.C. (930 years old
). Again, HUMAN REMAINS have been found to be 400,000 years old. If the Biblical HUMAN
Timeline had gone back to 400,000 B.C. to "Adam and Eve," then the story would be much more credible.
Again, these findings destroy the bogus "Adam and Eve" story. There's no amount rationalizing/Christian Apologetic-ising that can get around it.http://www.startagain.org/images/Creati ... ne-web.gif
I don't believe what I believe because it's what I desire to believe. I believe what I believe because it's what logic and reason cause me to believe. All I want is to live with the truth -- nothing more, nothing less.
