NurseRobert, your question was irrelevant, not because I say so but because it does not answer my question, because no past event can be verified by the scientific method. This example does not compromise Biblical Truth as the sun did stop in the sky from the watcher's perspective. Read Mark 1:32 "That evening after sunset the people brought to Jesus all the sick and demon-possessed..." We know the sun does not set, it just appears that way from man's perspective, and we still speak of 'sunset' today. The Bible's Truth is in no way compromised by either of these events.

Only a dogged sceptic would consider such things a problem. It is obvious you cannot answer the question, as asked.
---Warwick on 6/23/14


Schientists need to know where the planets, the sun and other space objects will be in the future to help calculated the life of a man-made satellite. The computer models are based upon past movememts of these space objects. The computer always hangs up when it comes across the day the sun (or the earth) stood still.

And don't forget about God moving the sun (or the earth) ten degrees as stated somewhere in the book of Kings.
---Steveng on 6/23/14


Since the sun does not revolve around the earth, it would be impossible for the Sun to "stand still", unless of course, you believe in geocentrism. Oh, wait, from the perspective of Joshua, the sun did stand still and it was the earth that stopped rotating. If this is the case a literal interpretation of the Bible is false.

I realize you will not accept this as a "testable scientific fact" however, since you have already decided that what I ask is "irrelevant" nothing I give you will suffice.
---NurseRobert on 6/23/14


NurseRobert, you have asked me questions and I have quickly given you detailed relevant answers.

I asked you one question "can you provide a testable scientific fact which proves an aspect of the Bible to be wrong?" And you ask "did the sun stand still for Joshua?" What has that to do with my question?

I will ask again: can you provide one testable scientific fact which proves an aspect of the Bible to be wrong?

If you answer this question, or admit you cannot answer it, I will happily answer your irrelevant question.
---Warwick on 6/23/14


Jerry, yes it is and no it doesnt. Your arguement comes down to this: Jesus was an historical figure, Jesus said it happened ergo, it happened. That is not archeological proof of the creation story. It is a personal belief based on what is in the Bible. There is no scientific proof of the creation according to Genesis.

Warwick, did the sun stand still for Joshua?

Luke, you are proving my point.
---NurseRobert on 6/22/14




NurseRobert, can you provide a testable scientific fact which proves an aspect of the Bible to be wrong?
---Warwick on 6/22/14


Robert: "your post hoc, ergo propter hoc argument doesn't hold."

1. It is not and yes it does. It holds that if a theory (e.g., the Bible is true) is tested by many observable facts, and they all confirm its validity, it is not proved false by the non-existent facts as your non-sequitur argument posits.

2. "The evidence of the flood can also be explained by other, long term natural occurrences, such as plate tectonics and erosion over millions of years." It can and it frequently is, but the scientific evidence (e.g., accelerator mass spectroscopy of C14) does not fit this model. It is an atheistic lie.

//2. The evidence of the flood can also be explained by other, long term natural occurrences, such as plate tectonics and erosion over millions of years.//

NurseRoberts,
Those explanations come from the world not from Scripture. Of course the world has many explanations not found in the word of God. But the Bible only has one explanation, and if you believe in the word of God, you should have faith in His word. In whom do you place your faith in? That is the question, Agape
---Luke on 6/22/14


-jerry6593 on 6/21/14: 'The validity of the Bible as historical record is well established by numerous archaeological discoveries.'

You overstate it. What you mean is no archaeological discovery disagrees with the Bible - though we need someone to explain with there is too little C14 in them.

In any case, those discoveries can only be used for the times after the time of Noah.

I take the first chapters of Genesis literally, but I do not ask people to take that as proven from outside the Bible.

You have to be careful in the things you ask people to accept.
---Peter on 6/21/14


I'm not missing your point, Jerry.

1. You're argument that the validity of the Bible as historical is flawed. Yes, there may be historical proof of some individuals and episodes of the Bible existed, however, your post hoc, ergo propter hoc argument doesn't hold.

2. The evidence of the flood can also be explained by other, long term natural occurrences, such as plate tectonics and erosion over millions of years.

You keep falling back on the argument that because the Bible says so means it's right. This is a personal belief that cannot be proven.
---NurseRobert on 6/21/14




Robert: I see that you missed my points entirely. The validity of the Bible as historical record is well established by numerous archaeological discoveries. The evidence of Noah's flood is written in the earth for all to see. Jesus is an historical figure, as attested by the historian Josephus. Jesus testified that the creation account of Genesis is true, and His Apostle John says that Christ Himself was the Creator (so He would know).

Therefore, the biblical account of earth's beginnings and destruction in Noah's flood has a reliable train of evidence. What does the BB theory have beside unscientific speculation and atheistic drivel?



---jerry6593 on 6/21/14


NurseRobert, as you know I am referring to Christians who reinterpret Scripture to conform to human philosophies. By definition Christians accept the Biblical God of Truth exists, whose word is Truth. Therefore why would any Christian prefer the ever-changing opinions of fallible sinful men over the word of the one and only God who was there?

As to non-Christians that is a different matter. In my career I have seen numerous atheists come to accept Christ as their Creator God and Saviour after being shown that evolution/long ages is wrong, that the available evidence corresponds closely with the Scriptural account. Are we talking scientific proof? No, but if it was proof, then it is not faith, and it is faith which God commends.
---Warwick on 6/20/14


Jerry, where are Christ's words other than in the Bible. Please show me where "archaeological evidence" exists.


You're saying the Bible is correct because the Bible says so.
---NurseRobert on 6/20/14


Jerry, there is NO archaeological proof of the Biblical version of creation, there is only the Biblical account itself.

Warwick, you have chosen to "believe untestable therefore unproven ideas" yourself. There are those who say YOU are wrong.
---NurseRobert on 6/20/14


Robert: The validity of the Bible and hence the Creation account is established by archaeological evidence and Christ's own words in the New Testament. The validity of Christ is historical fact.

The BB theory is based on the speculation of a science fiction writer, George Gamow. It is propped up by specious concepts such as dark matter and dark energy, predicts a center for the explosion which can't be determined, predicts equal amounts of antimatter which can't be found, and shows recession of galaxies in all directions implying geocentrism. Why do you believe such unproven nonsense? Blind faith?







---jerry6593 on 6/19/14


NurseRobert, yes I believe any Christian who chooses to believe untestable therefore unproven ideas (such as the Big bang) rather than what God's word says, is wrong.

Those who reject that God exists are by definition forced to accept naturalistic ideas of our beginnings because they cannot accept the Biblical supernatural beginnings.

You are right I accept Scripture by faith, but not blind faith (Romans 1:19,20) because the available evidence supports Scripture.

love.jesus, what are you trying to say through your two quotes?
---Warwick on 6/17/14


Luke, we refer to one day as being 24hrs when in fact it is about 23hrs, 56 minutes and 4 seconds. As the earth's rotation is slowing the day is getting very very slowly longer. My point is that a day does not have to be exactly 24hrs to be called a 24hr day.

If the rate at which the earth revolves around its axis has been slowing at a fixed rate we could then calculate exactly how long a day was when the earth was created c6,000 years ago. Maybe some online mathematic guru could do the calculations.

Warwick, you accept the Biblical story of creation on faith, without any actual proof, but then argue that someone who believes the Big Bang version of creation is wrong?

//We can get to the 24hr part later, but I have yet to mention it.
So, how do we determine which definition to use?
By context.//

That was my point. It depends on the context. We cannot be so legalistic to say, a day is this period. The writers of scripture used many words we now use that were not use when the original copies were there. As students we have to look for the facts. At no time in the whole Bible is 24 hours mentioned. If is was there, we would find fault in the Bible, since the day does not have 24 hours exact. There was no reason to put 24 hours in Genesis. We should just assume it was 24 hours because it is the norm to say a day has 24 hours, when it doesn't. Do you get my meaning? Agape
---Luke on 6/17/14


The world was set in place, it cannot be moved. (Psalm 93:1b)
---love.jesus on 6/16/14


NurseRobert, your question is philosophically the same as: how do you know the Bible is not historically accurate?

I accept the Bible's accuracy by faith, as God commands.
Romans 1:19,20 "For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made.

Therefore it is by faith, but not blind faith. The same faith I exercise to accept Jesus died and rose again to wash away the sins of many.

Luke, true, 1 and 3 are difinitions. 2 is more of a comparison, and yet is figurative.
Another definition for "day" is a determined amount of time.
We can get to the 24hr part later, but I have yet to mention it.
So, how do we determine which definition to use?
By context. The context for the numbered days in Gen 1 fits all other days in the Bible which is used the same way, a normal day-a period of darkness, and a period of light, what we now know as 1 rotation on its axis.
This is what God was conveying. He was defining one normal day to us.
He also defined a day, the time between dusk and dawn, in Gen 1:5. It has its context as well so that we can see it is describing the daylight time.
---micha9344 on 6/16/14


//The Bible does confirm how long one day is, for God set the definition on creation week//

Dear Michael,
The Bible has three definitions for what a day is.
1. So the evening and the morning were the day.
2. A day to the Lord is like a thousand years.
3. The day, also means daylight.
The day is never mentioned as 24 hours. It does not try to be exact, for the simple reason it is not exactly 24 hours, so if it mentioned 24 hours we would know it is wrong because there is not exactly 24 hours in a day. The writers never included the exact hours. Agape

Dear Michael,
I believe the Sun to be older then the earth, because the heavens came first in the order of creation, then the earth. How much older only in hours or minutes. I believe as I said, then when God spoke they came to be at the age God wanted things to be. That is my opinion. Agape

Hi Luke,
I wasn't looking for an exact age and was viewing everyone's opinions, hence from the question "do you think."
Lining scripture up with opinions is important.
The Bible does confirm how long one day is, for God set the definition on creation week.
God created Adam as an adult so that he could understand and obey God. Adam was still only 1 day old on the seventh day.
A newly created car is not hundreds or thousands of years old just because it is finished and has materials that are old.
Do you believe the Sun to be older than the Earth as secular "science" believes?
---micha9344 on 6/13/14


Dear Michael,
No one can give the exact age of the Sun. Anything anyone gives is only an opinion. And let me say many have so many different opinions. But no one has the exact age of the Sun, earth, or the heavens. I do not think anyone should hold anyone as hostile because they answer a certain way, after all, they are all opinions. In Genesis the Bible never mentions the hours in a day, or how long it took God to create, or how old were the planets and stars when He created them. He spoke and they were there, at whatever age they had to be by the will of God. Agape
---Luke on 6/11/14


Michael: "How is it?" Simple. They simply believe their leftist, atheist college professors more than the Bible. They believe that mankind has evolved to a higher state of intelligence than those of Bible times. All this while they systematically ignore the hard scientific facts that refute their beliefs. I used to be one of them, but no more.



---jerry6593 on 6/7/14


How is it that some say the Sun is older than the Earth?
If the Sun was created on day 4, wouldn't that make the Sun that much younger instead of older?
How is it some say the Earth was pulled in by the Sun's gravity if the Earth is older?
Did not God make the Sun, not only for light, but for the telling of time for us?
If the Earth is 4.6 billion years old, as even some Christians adhere to, wouldn't that make the Sun only millions or even less depending on which view you hold?
Gap theory: Earth billions, Sun thousands.
Progressive: Earth billions, Sun millions.
Truth: Earth thousands, Sun thousands-3days.

---jerry6593 on 6/5/14


love.jesus, your repeated refusal to answer a relevant question speaks volumes. I do defend Scripture against sceptics, especially regarding creation, and its historical truth. Why? Because that is where the Sceptics are most active. There is a quote often attributed to Martin Luther "If I profess, with the loudest voice and the clearest exposition, every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christianity. Where the battle rages the loyalty of the soldier is proved, and to be steady on all the battle-field besides is mere flight and disgrace to him if he flinches at that one point."

love.jesus, the Bibles I have all say-all Scripture is God breathed. That is good enough for me to consider there are no untrue or pointless verses in the whole Bible. I do not take Scripture literally but take it as written, unless there is some sound reason not to do so. For example it says-the trees of the field will clap their hands. Do we take this literally or as a figure of speech which conveys truth? The latter.

But the question I asked you was: How can you believe the truth of one verse of Scripture if you don't believe the truth of all?
---Warwick on 6/2/14


OK, Warwick. I will say then that I do not believe that every verse of the Bible is of equal importance or is literally true, nor have most Christians over the centuries. I hope that answers your question. God bless you richly.

Lovejesus, this is another subject that is not relevant, bible says The world was void and dark, and God said let there be light and there was light. What gives light. Spiritually God does but literally the sun gives light. That tells me how old the sun is.

love.jesus, you wrote "What the age of the Sun is, is a scientific question. It has no bearing God's love for me and you." As I have pointed out it has every bearing upon God's love for us because the age of the sun is in the same Bible where God says He loves us. It is therefore more importantly a Biblical than scientific question.

Again I ask-If we cannot trust God's word on this matter (the sun's age) how can we trust it on any other matter, such as Jesus' love and sacrifice? I would like an answer please.

I trust you will answer so as to remove yourself from those deceivers who accept/promote nonBiblical ideas then refuse to answer relevant questions.

love: "What the age of the Sun is, is a scientific question. It has no bearing God's love for me and you."

The Bible says that God created the heaven and the earth in six days and rested the seventh day (Exo 20:11). I take " heaven" here to include the sun. God created this planet and it's life-sustaining sun for only one reason - His LOVE for us.

And BTW, He also created science.

Love.Jesus, God's word (that same word which says Jesus loves us and died for us) says the sun was made on the fourth day of creation. The Biblical genealogies from Adam to Jesus add up to about 4,000 years. Therefore we do know when the sun was created.

If we cannot trust God's word on this matter how can we trust it on any other matter, such as Jesus' love and sacrifice. I would like an answer please.

Blogger: "The age of stars can be deterred [sic] by slight variations in the frequencies of light they radiate."

I think you meant "inferred" rather than "deterred". You are attempting to describe the results of cosmic age = distance "inferred" from Doppler wavelength shift based on the Hubble Constant and assuming an original Big Bang. This theory is full of holes and predicts such nonsense as geocentrism and quasar speeds up to 6 times the speed of light. Gravitational red shift (rather than Doppler) has been demonstrated and doesn't require the presupposition of an impossible first cause (magic).

Not necessarily.

If you assume everything is as presented in the evolutionary system (meaning the big bank and so on), and that the universe began with the big bank, and the universe is in the billions of years old, yes

If you take the universe to be in the thousands of years old, and Genesis to be literal, then the age of the stars cannot be determined in any way at all

Just to point that out

Great work, Michael! The theory of solar system formation that Blogger is espousing is essentially the "Nebular Hypothesis Theory" advanced by Emanuel Swedenborg in 1734. He claimed to have gotten the idea during a spiritualist sance.

Such a theory cannot explain the preponderance of angular momentum in the planets (99.5%), while the preponderance of the system mass is in the sun (99.8%). Neither can it explain the diverse elemental makeup of the planets and their moons or the rogue moons that rotate/revolve in the opposite direction from the majority.

I would also like to know just exactly how Blogger measured the age of the sun (And with such precision, yet!).

Warwick, I agree with you - partly. Many do quote other people rather than quoting scripture but others misquote (or only partially quote) verses of scripture.

---Rita_H on 5/27/14


Bryan when you refer to a Biblical quote it is best to give the whole quote, which in this instance gives a totally different meaning than your half quote gives. 2Peter 3:8 "But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day." Peter shows he knows God is eternal, outside of time, therefore does not live in days of any length.

Time was created for man (Genesis 1:8) and "one day" and "a thousand years" are human terms, measuring time for humans, only on earth.

---Bryan on 5/26/14


Bryan, God spoke of the earth, and its day i.e. the time for the earth to complete one rotation on its axis, in relation to a fixed light-source. God does not live in time as 2 Peter 3:8 shows. Time was created for man-Genesis 1:8.

As Exodus 20:8-11 shows God wastalking in our terms, not in His-sunset, sunrise, evening, morning, east and west are all from our perspective.

The 6-days of work and 7th of rest are for man. Do you expect me to believe 6-days in verse 8 does not mean the same thing as 6-days in verse 11?

If you think they are different please give Scriptural or grammatical evidence to support your view.

Why did God tell Israel to work 6-days and rest the seventh?

He says "For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day."

God uses the exact same words to describe His 6-days of creation and their 6-days of work, so both are the same c24hr length. Otherwise this Commandment is meaningless.
