Jason1072: A comment.....

The ages you list, especially the Mt. Kilauea, was not done in a 'properly processed method' - in fact the Kilauea test was a test that was already known NOT TO WORK except in very old sample. So that one was not merely incorrectly done, it may have been done to PRODUCE INCORRECT DATA.

If you want to complain that radio dating does not work, at least only work that was done PROPERLY

Otherwise you are, possibly even deliberately, misleading us
---James on 10/11/11


Rocky said: See "Geologic Time Scale" article that summarizes the scientific evidence from many sources. I cannot believe you even question that the scientific evidence proves this.

It proves nothing. The geologic time scale dates, which are arbitrary, were made up long before radiometric dating was even invented. Now, when they use radiometric dating, if the date doesnt fit the geologic time scale it gets tossed and they keep testing until they get the date they want. Regarding the flood, 2 Peter 3:1-7 speaks of people like you and Trav, those that scoff and are willingly ignorant of the flood. Believe it to be allegory all you want, but you couldnt be more wrong.
---Jason1072 on 10/11/11


You need to research the assumptions that are made with radiometric dating, resulting in it being flawed.
---Jason1072 on 10/11/11
No, you should verify that the mis-dating was due to radiocarbon dating before providing it as an example to prove such a thesis. Also, please provide some reference for support. And if there has been proof that challenges the theory, as opposed to some problems of bad testing, why hasnt the scientific community acknowledged it? De-bunkers can make quite a name for themselves.

What did God do on the 8th day?
---Rocky on 10/11/11


Scott1, Genesis 1 was written in prosaic Hebrew which is the straight-forward style in which instructions for a piece of equipment would be written.

Further to this, God commanded the Israelites to work 6 days, rest the 7th, because He created in 6 days, rested the 7th.

Exodus 31:14,15 "Observe the Sabbath, because it is holy to you. Anyone who desecrates it must be put to death, whoever does any work on that day must be cut off from his people. For six days, work is to be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day must be put to death."

God obviously told them exactly what day the Sabbath was, right?
---Warwick on 10/11/11




The Ark obviously did not have to take representatives of all species which exist today. It only needed representatives of the original kinds from which the various species have arisen, over time.

Christians understand the world-wide flood of Noah was God's work. He who created everything, in 6 days, on His own can certainly keep anything alive whereever He wishes.

As regards plant life modern experience of floods has seen large floating mats of vegetation travelling ocross the oceans, taking plants and animals to places they have never been found before.

It is by faith we accept Jesus rose from the dead despite humanistic scientists insisting no such thing can happen. In Hebrews 11:7 God commends Noah for His faith.
---Warwick on 10/11/11


In reality the fossil record is a world-wide testimony to the flood of Noah. It is sedimentary rock (therefore deposited by water) and contains the remains of untold trillions of creatures.

Solid evidence for the world-wide flood!

Those "purists" that believe every word of scripture is "God breathed" need only to look at the account of the 40 year trek in the desert, IE there's no evidence of a large group of people spending a lengthy time in the area spoken about....none whatever!
---1st_cliff on 10/11/11


I tend to think it is more literary style that Moses wrote six days and rested on the seventh to explain the picture God gave him of creation story. It is the simpliest form instead of trying to figure out old earth with new creation, new earth, new creation and others that have been explored to explain scientific and God timelines.

Agreeing with you only use one Bible. KJ. Most concordances are linked KJ.
Would add that in GOD's word there will be witnesses...more than one confirming. Sometimes what is not said is a witness.
Genesis one is a witness. Earth is a witness.
Stone is a witness. Fossils are a witness. Truth found in multiple witnesses is still truth.
Fabrication with no supporting witness is opinion,theory,conjecture or perhaps false. And can be itself a witness...and does.

Rocky said: Please provide examples when accurately processed tests were proven wrong

The KBS Tuff (ash layer) in Africa was dated at 212 to 230 millions years old, but then they found a human skull beneath it and changed the date from 0.5 to 2.6 million years old. Brand new material (age 0) from Mt. St. Helens was tested five different ways and gave an age of 0.3 to 2.8 million years old. Newly created basalt (age 0) from Mt. Kilauea was dated at 8.5 million years old. There are many many more examples. You need to research the assumptions that are made with radiometric dating, resulting in it being flawed.

Sometimes people use the excuse of many translations of the Bible to say it isn't correct or right. By so doing they have developed this method to dismiss what they don't want to believe or receive of the Bible. The whole problem with that is by such a declaration they are in fact saying God isn't powerful enough to bring to his people the truth of his Word which he wants them to know. Despite numerous translations God has given us the Spirit of Truth,the Holy Ghost to lead us into all truth John 16:13. Only flesh depends on the mind to understand the Bible,for when we walk in the Spirit,we are led by the Spirit,we don't lean to our own understanding. We need no man to teach us 1 John 2:27. Satans lies are often wrapped in mans methods.

CLARIFICATION - article was from Wikipedia. When I wrote "scientific evidence proves this" I meant that within the realm of science, this is clearly what the evidence shows. I did not mean that it absolutely proves the Genesis creation story is false. I think it is false, an allegory, but recognize I could be wrong, not likely, but I could be.

Well, now I am open to how to interpret that, and concerned that ones would call so much attention to a day of the week and not as much attention to Jesus on the cross. It seems there are people who have more attention and feeling and passion for a day, than for Jesus.

However > it does say that when Jesus comes "we shall all be changed---in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye" (in 1 Corinthians 15:51-52. It looks like Paul is saying that in the Rapture our bodies will be resurrected in the time it takes to blink your eye.

So, if God can resurrect our bodies in an eye-blink, I would say He could have created the whole universe in less than a second. So, if He took six days, He was taking His time, I would say (c:

The problem here lies largely in the meaning of terms Christians use. For instance, in Adventism, grace is simply a provision granted to those who believe so that the believer can obey the law and thus merit eternal salvation.

That basically puts works back into salvation as a requirement.

While they say you are not saved by obedience to law, sin is disobedience to law and one cannot be saved if you sin.

Acutally it doesn't, unless you're the area the flood happened perhaps.
If there were one massive flood there would be one massive sedimentary seam full of every animal an organism living at the time. Not there.
It would be above the original Genesis sediment. There is no massive Global Sedimentation from your doctrinal flood.

---Warwick on 10/10/11
Please define ABSOLUTE truth. As I would define that term it would mean no fictional accounts like allegory and parable, but you apparently allow these. A further problem may be defining the extent of allegory - which can be expanded to cover a lot - and which passages are allegorical. For instance, the creation story. And it would mean no copying or translation errors. ABSOLUTE truth should also be clear in meaning, but we both know of the many Bible-based doctrinal disputes. But how are you defining the term?

many scientists don't believe in evolution
---Jason1072 on 10/10/11
The vast majority of the scientific community and academia supports evolutionary theory as the only explanation that can fully account for observations in the fields of biology, paleontology, anthropology, and others. An expert in the evolution-creationism controversy, professor and author Brian Alters, states that "99.9 percent of scientists accept evolution". A 1991 Gallup poll found that about 5% of scientists identified themselves as creationists. The prestigious United States National Academy of Sciences published several books supporting evolution and denouncing creationism and intelligent design.

Lee, having preached in many SDA churces and spent time in their homes I have only once had and Adventist say Sunday worship is evil. And he was immediately contradicted by his pastor, Bruce Price.

Contrary to what you say Adventists believe in salvation by faith alone.

BTW the first day of the week was not called the Sabbath by early Christians.
---Warwick on 10/11/11


Lee my reading of the Galileo affair shows that it was not the RC church itself but a faction within the church which opposed his ideas. I also discovered that Galileo was a rude and arrogant man who was his own worst enemy.

Also the church at that time had absorbed Aristotelian geocentrism beliefs, through which they interpreted Scripture. This demonstrates that we should not reinterpret Scripture via changing human socalled 'scientific' beliefs.

True Christianity is never deminished no matter what day you worship God. If you are a genuine believer you will not be forced to worship on one day or another, your love for Christ is everyday and you will do what your heart desires and that is Christ.
You seem to be speaking to those who are not saved at all. The way God spoke to those in the Old Testament. He had to force them to obey and worship Him on Saturday's and if they didn't the axe would fall. In Christ we are not under the law, you just don't want to come out of the burdon of the Law. And you or Jerry cannot force the law on us. We are driven by the Holy Spirit and a love for Christ unto good works, for God gets all the glory on anything good we do, for He is behind it all.

Only the Jewish Christians continue to observe the laws of Moses including the Jewish Sabbath. History testifies to that effect.

I suppose what bothers most people is the fact that Adventists accuse those who truly love the Lord but have communal worship on Sunday as bearing the Mark of the Beast. Howbeit, I believe the spirit of that beast indwelt the Adventist movement.

Warwick, your understanding of Mark 10:6 is ridiculous. You say, "Jesus uniquely knows man was made on day 6 calling this the beginning of creation."

Firstly, Jesus did not know - He created man and everything else. Secondly, man was not the beginning of God's creation, the heavens and the earth was. Thirdly, God created everything else and man was the last - made from DUST! Is there value in dust?

You have this terrible habit of plucking one verse, turning it into your own doctrine and you dare accuse MarkV of what you do so well. Context of Mark 10:6 was in reference to marriage and divorce. So get your facts right.

In any case, the issue is totally irrevelant to our soteriology and Christian walk.

Rocky all the long-ages indicators are based upon untestable assumptions. Therefore they are only educated guesses. There have been numerous instances where such formations have been seen to have happened quickly.

At an Australian cave system visitors are indoctrinated into the ancientness of the stalacmites and stalactites. The major problem for the long ages view is that in one such stalacmite there is a toy London bus. In another is a soft drink bottle.

Godiseverywhere, Scripture says "... and everything that does not come from faith is sin" Romans 14:23.

We are also told "By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible." Hebrews 11:3.

Jesus also told us "I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe, how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things?"

Jesus also said man was made at the beginning of Creation- Mark 10:6.

We are indeed saved by faith in Jesus Christ. But does this faith only refer to His finished work upon the cross, or does it also refer to believing everything He said?

Rocky, as I and others have repeatedly said we do not take the Bible literally. If we did we would believe trees have hands!

We take the Bible at face value unless there is some good literary reason not to do so. However just because God uses poetry, allegory, or parables does not mean that this is not a report of absolute truth.

When Jesus used parables He called them parables. But what He actualy, historically said is there recorded.

The first 3 days of Creation were designated as being from evening to morning -lee1538 on 10/10/2011

Lee, you are incorrect. ALL of the days of creation were designated as being from evening to morning. Actually, any day mentioned in the O.T. including The LORD's feasts and festivals are designated as beginning in the evening. That is why Jews still keep the sabbath from sundown friday evening to sundown saturday evening. They do the same with any holy day. Only in English societies do the days run from morning to evening.

If we stick to God's word ignoring mans fancies we see:

God here defines what constitutes one day and applies this same phrase to the following 5 creation days e.g. "And there was evening and there was morning-the fifth day."

God then confirms He created in 6 ordinary 24hr days in Exodus 20:8-11.

No contrary definition of the length of the creation days is given anywhere in Scripture.

Those who oppose 6 24hr day creation reject what Scripture says, preferring human oppinion. Occasionally one or more of them are honest enough to agree they believe in long-ages. If they believe the earth is much much older than the Biblical genealogies allow they have man appearing at the end of creation, not at the beginning. You say we only need faith in Jesus to be saved but by rejecting what Jesus says displays unbelief. And as Haz has pointed out unbelief is sin.

If you believe that in the first 3 days God was the source of light.
It would necessitate that He was in a "fixed" point in the universe causing a shadow (darkness) on the side of the earth away from Him.
How would this correlate with "omniscience"? (that He is everywhere)
Was there day and night at both the poles, or only at the equator?

The first 3 days of Creation were designated as being from evening to morning, the light emanated from God not the sun created on the 4th period of creation.

The sun after the 4th period became the separator between light and darkness - this period and later were also called 'day', separated by evening and morning.

Since the light sources were different from the 1st 3 periods from the following periods, that what was designated as 'day' took on an entirely different meaning.

Were all the days, a mere 24 hours in duration? The record does not tell us that and we are left to assume they were. But an assumption is not proof.

'These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created , in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens.' Ge.2:4 (NIV). According to this verse, the LORD created heaven and earth in one all embracing 'day'.

While discussing God's creative activity, Moses wrote:

'For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night'- Psalms 90:4 (NIV).

Not to say that 'a day' with God is always 1000yrs, but Moses and the Israelites knew God's count of time is not the same as the human count of time. They are very different- Isaiah 55:8,9.

\\For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed. -Exodus 31:17
---Jed on 10/9/11\\

Why would God Almighty get tired that He should need to rest?
---Cluny on 10/10/11


I don't know Cluny. Perhaps he was giving us an example to follow. But frankly, I don't know. Why don't you ask God since he's the one who said it, not me. If you have a problem with a scripture or don't understand God's reasoning then take it up with God. All I did was post a scripture. I didn't even add my own commentary and still I am questioned? So you only question God, not me.

1)That should put the Big Bang and millions of years of eveloution ideas to rest.
2) therefore we should accept God's Word by faith.
3) Contention brings salvation to no one,the Gospel does.
--Darlene1 10/10/11
1)Why? You have not written anything that casts doubt on them.
2)Yes, Gods word, but that is not necessarily the same as accepting the Bible as literal and inerrant. The Bible has had so much human affect in the original recording, recopying, selecting books to include, and multiple translations. Also look at all the different versions of the OT and NT
3)Contention is not good, but neither is false doctrine, which should be opposed.

Mark 10:6-9 He quotes Genesis 1:27, and 2:24 as The basis for marriage. In verse 6 He says man was made at the beginning of creation. This fits with 6-day creation but not with any long-ages view.

Mar 10:6 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
The scripture you cite does not say anything to prove that the creation days were literal days as we know them. I don't know if the literal 6 day creation is true or not, but I don't need to know that to know Jesus or be saved. I accept the limitations of my human mind and don't ask for irrelevant knowledge.

1 Corinthians 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God's sight. How can people who God created judge the time or ways of the Creator? God created all that we see,he spoke and it was formed therefore the things on this earth are not made from anything we see. That should put the Big Bang and millions of years of eveloution ideas to rest. Perhaps mans minds cannot grasp God's ways but God teaches his people the things which are important to a relationship with him. Faith being one which the Bible says we must have to please God Hebrews 11:6 therefore we should accept God's Word by faith. Six days of creation and one of rest was given for humankind a pattern of life. Contention brings salvation to no one,the Gospel does.

//Do you believe that God created the world in six literal days and rested the seventh one, thereby establishing the 7-day week?

I do not believe we must have that interpretation as there is nothing in scripture to support the view that the first 2 days were of 24 hours in length.

We do, howbeit, believe totally that God was the Creator but exactly how He created the earth and all in it, can only become speculation.

God showed His creation of the world to Moses, who wrote it down as he saw it.
--Peter on 10/9/11
Tradition credits Moses as the author of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy, but the books are infact anonymous and look on Moses as a figure from the distant past. Some traditions contained in Genesis are as old as the United Monarchy, but modern scholars increasingly see it as a product of the 6th and 5th centuries BCE. For much of the 20th century most scholars agreed the five books of the Pentateuch were composed of four sources, the Yahwist, Elohist, Deuteronomist and Priestly source, each telling the same basic story, joined together by various editors.

2) Evolution that shows a long record of change and development of species
3) The huge number and variation in plant and animal species - how did it all fit in the ark?
4) The expanding universe and everything science has learned about the Cosmos

Rocky, it's bad enough that when the Bible tells us God created the earth in seven days and you're in unbelief. But you compound your unbelief of the Holy Bible given by God to man when you say, "Moreover, the God of the OT is different than the NT." How so?

Scripture tells us, "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever." Hebrews 13:8. Isn't Jesus Christ "One with the Father" and also the second person of the Godhead? Many of the Jews who read the Torah like you and deny Jesus Christ is God are going to the Lake of Fire or for some, they are already in Hades. It is the sin of unbelief in Christ (who's God) that sends the unbeliever to Hell, or don't you know that?

Hey Godiseverywhere, God believes in 6 day creation as well!

"For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy."
---Warwick on 10/10/11


Rock we don't take Scripture literally, but at face value unless there is some good literary reason not to.

In Genesis 1 God defines what makes one day and created in 6 of these ordinary days, and confirmed this in Exodus 20:8-11.

In John 3:12 Jesus asks how we can believe Him about heavenly things, if we don't believe Him about earthly things. He often quoted from Genesis-always as historical reality-e.g. Mark 10:6-9 He quotes Genesis 1:27, and 2:24 as The basis for marriage. In verse 6 He says man was made at the beginning of creation. This fits with 6-day creation but not with any long-ages view.

Do we need to believe what Jesus says to be saved?

Paul: "Do you believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God?"

ABSOLUTELY!

aka: "this argument will always last 1 day longer than creation"

WHY?

Rocky: "the God of the OT is different than the NT"

Joh 5:39 Search the SCRIPTURES, for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of ME.

Peter: "God showed His creation of the world to Moses, who wrote it down as he saw it."

Exo 31:18 And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, WRITTEN WITH THE FINGER OF GOD.

God showed His creation of the world to Moses, who wrote it down as he saw it.

Was the day then (as Moses was shown it) the same as our day? I don't see a reason to suspect it was different.

If others have a reason to suspect it was different, please explain the reason, and I will try to see if it is or is not a good reason
---Peter on 10/9/11


Jerry, no, I don't believe it. But if you do, that's okay by me. :)

For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed. -Exodus 31:17
---Jed on 10/9/11


I doubt that it was created in 6 days. Those literalists who think the Bible is inerrant should read a little about the history of the Torah. Moreover, the God of the OT is different than the NT. For instance, just read Numbers 31 to read about Moses, after one victory, commanding the killing of all males, children included, and every women that had known a man, and taking for themselves every woman who had not known a man. A little different than Luk_6:27: But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
One does not have to believe in an inerrant Bible to believe in Jesus.
---Rocky on 10/9/11


Gen. chapters 1-3... DAYS 1-6,creation, DAY 7 God rested. Now, having said that...
11Peter 3:7-8,(8)But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years & a thousand years as one day.
This says to me that God doesn't measure time the way we do, yet He chose to let us know His creation time by using the word "DAY". He knew how we'd measure time & He knew that He was saying, "DAY". He created the world & man in 6, rested on the 7th... So, Yes, I'd say that's a pretty safe guess on how the 7 day week got started.:-)))
