Ed: Paul wrote: "O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:" - 1Ti 6:20

Jesus, with His own finger, wrote in stone that heaven and earth were created in six literal days (cf. Exo 20:11). If Evolution is true, then Jesus is either a liar or is really stupid. I don't think He's either.

Most science texts on the subject are indeed "falsely so called." Darwinism is not science.

MikeM The 6,000 years doesn't come from Genesis 1 but from the genealogies from Adam to Jesus. Anyone can add 'em up.

To reject the geneaolgies means you are writing off more and more of scripture to conform to your man-based theories. Theories which don't stand up to scientific scrutiny. This tells me and others that your starting point is not in the Word of God but in the changing opinions of men.
---Warwick on 4/15/08

The word "science" is used many times in scripture. It is the Greek word "gnosis" which is usually translated, "knowledge". The Bible is the best science book ever, second to none. Whether you call it "science", "politics", "philosophy", or "religion", they all are belief systems based upon our interpretations of facts. God has nothing to fear of "false science". Take heed your interpretions of the data are correct!
---Joshua on 4/11/07

Dave we need to be careful using science to 'prove' the Bible as scientific'facts' continually change. Where does this leave us if such a 'fact' is no longer a fact. However I know of nothing in operational sciennce which contradicts Scripture, much the opposite. And nothing which supports evoulution.

BTW I doubt the Garden was in modern Ethopia as the world of that time was destroyed by the flood-all gone! I do understand what you are saying though.
---Warwick on 2/21/07

The Bible was not meant to teach Science but Religion. If one wants to learn the Sciences he should pick up the latest book on the Sciences. The Bible is meant to teach holiness and the way of God. I have never seen the word science in the bible.Some astrology and geology is in the bible but as far as medical science....It is debateable
---tonne on 2/21/07


Do i believe this literally? Yes.
I don't want you to take away your faith in Christ or God.
I just think that there are times when we need to differentiate between literal and allegorical/metaphorical.
For example Jesus says: "forgive 77 times". Does this mean we 1. forgive 77 times, or 2. that we should be unconditional, magnimonious, sincere, and fogive on all occasions?
---Ed on 2/21/07

having studied science for many years,there are so many things only coming to light now in 2007 that prove to the world that Jesus is the Christ that are factual. the original Garden of Eden was located in Ethiopia, now desert. scrolls found around the Dead Sea, temples found in South America that back up legends 5000 years old of people living in the Americas. science is evolving swiftly. cures for disease etc. God reveals things in His time, not man's.
---Dave on 2/20/07

Ed but do you believe Him when He says man was made in the image of God at the beginning of Creation- Mark 10:6-8? These being the words of Jesus creator/redeemer, and the basis of Christian marriage. This may seem like a small point to some however Col. 2:8 says don't trust philosophy or human tradition but Christ. Do we pass the test?

The point is Ed who do you trust, the current opinions of falible men or the unchanging Truth of a perfect God?
---Warwick on 2/20/07


But don't jump to conclusions:
I never mentioned original sin or Adam. I do believe, however, that Adam disobeyed God and brought sin and real death into the real world. Just like you.
Therefore "warm and fuzzy" feeling is irrelevant and meangingless to me.
---Ed on 2/20/07

Ed certainly Scripture contains many styles of writing. We comprehend the point of parables even if the events never happened!

But unless Adam really disobeyed God-really bringing real sin & real death into the real world, there was no real reason for Jesus to die & really rise again. Unless sin and salvation are real historical events our salvation and eternity in heaven are unreal! Maybe just warm & fuzzy feelings, but a lie from He who said He is the Truth!
---Warwick on 2/19/07

But why do you have to go from one extreme to another?
The Bible contains both allegory and Literal. Not just one or the other.
Often an attitude/feeling/emotion, for example Love, is best expressed by allegory/metaphor (just look at Shakespeare, and the great poets). We are human beings not robots. Jesus communicates to us as human beings. But at other times Jesus speaks literally: when laying down the law, like in a court; telling us exactly what the laws of our faith should be.
---Ed on 2/19/07

The field of Science has two sides. One side is accepted and is believed to be 100% absolute, While the other side that conflicts it- is ignored! Evolutionist make themselves to be God's and anyone who refuses to believe their theories- in their eyes, is an ignorant human with a low I.Q.!
FACTS uncovered by Evolutionist themselves contradict their own THEORIES! I know, I've spent a large amount of time studying them! The arrogance of man will be brought low when Christ returns!
---DePuTy on 2/18/07

Ed-whether Genesis is historical fact or not is vital- it's the basis of sin/salvation-read the NT.

If not historical fact then Jesus/apostles didn't know as they quoted it as fact- how can we trust them with our eternities?

If not historical fact then there is no factual foundation for sin therefore no need for Jesus to actually die for that sin.

If just allegory or vague story then maybe Jesus didn't really die so by NT definition's we're still lost in our sins-a side issue?
---Warwick on 2/18/07

We're all free to believe what we want to believe! Consider this for a moment- the government accepts Evolution as being the ONLY Fact Gospel; Yet it has many serious flawes! While all along, God is being removed from public places! You want to place your faith in a system that claims man evolved from ape- go ahead! But keep in mind that God made us in HIS IMAGE! By accepting their theory- you voluntarily INSULT God! Intelligent-Design is REAL science and backs-up God!
---DePuTy on 2/18/07

Clarification: In my #[6] post below, I believe my "which even the E.B. knows for a fact!" would have read better if written: "which even the Encyc. Britanica knows was a LIE!" An historian, Jeffrey Burton Russell, UCSB (also Berkely, Harvard and other schools) even wrote a book titled: Inventing the Flat Earth (1991). If you GOOGLE him, you'll find a page with comments such as: "No one before the 1830s believed that medieval people thought that the earth was flat."
---danie9374 on 2/18/07


"Creationist-God - Evolutionsit-Man" is nothing more than a platitude.

I can answer that by saying Creationists interpret The Creation at face value. I can therefore conclude: Creationists-Man - Evolutiotists-God. But I won't because that is a platitude.

Jesus says: forgive 77 times. Are me to take this at face value and forgive, literally 77 times, or are we meant to use our common sense, and understand that as: be magnimonius and sincere in your forgiveness?
---Ed on 2/18/07

You could well be right. The world could have been created in 6 days. I go with the Evolutionist theory, myself, as it just makes more common sense (to me). But I don't know. I do think there are many more important issues to be thinking about, and not get too bogged down in this one. Take care. God Bless.
---Ed on 2/18/07

greetings.warwick.I assumed nothing.As i said, primitive people worship the sun.There are primitive people today who will for years to come think their God is in something other than theirself.God will never cease to revelate for God is a unceasing revelation.
---earl on 2/17/07

Earl I didn't accuse simply pointed out your obvious starting assumptions. As someone said-- to assume makes an ass of u and me because fact cannot be based upon assumption.

Now you also assume that the sun is the earth's parent. Many scientists would strongly Disagree.

You also assume that as many have worshiped the sun all have which is assumption as no one knows what everyone has done. You appear to have swallowed the Hollywood/urbam myth version of evolution.
---Warwick on 2/17/07

Ed- you say creationists don't want science to play a role??? Sounds like Hollywood to me. The scientific method which for example put man on the moon was developed by Christian creationists.

Not opinion - testable fact.

I work with research scientists many or whom are creationists! Your bias closes your mind to reality.

Of course the earth orbits the sun, we can test that by operational science. The Bible has nothing to fear from true science, just the opposite.

What your talking about is a whole different subject. I don't doubt that Catholics have been persecuted. Thanks to FALSE doctrines- Many religious groups have fought against each other. What a shame!
The leaders, including individuals, who are responsible for spreading FALSE doctrines will not inherit the Kingdom of God! They are helping guide millions to the fiery Lake of Fire! "By following the wrong religion- SATAN wants people to MISS the MARK, Fall Short of the Kingdom of God!

Galileo was correct about his scientifical findings. Nonetheless, He was studying a subject Matter that was Here and Now! The BIG question for ALL mankind is How life began. You either believe God or you believe Man. Other than the Word, No one was there with God to see how he created the Universe! This includes Evolutionist. It's a matter of what your going to believe, Creationist- God or Evolutionist- man! God bless!
---DePuTy on 2/17/07


"Galileo as an extremely obnoxious man" - do you subscribe to his science or not, then?

If, yes, then why do you include this? And if, yes, then your analogy doesn't work: Galielo was a scientist offering a new interpretation of God's universe - the Creationists don't want science playing a role in how the Creation story is interpreted; instead they want to interpret it, themselves, at face value.
---Ed on 2/17/07

**The Catholic Church has been involved with many of histories worst human violations. The TRUE Christians don't persecute anyone- **

[4] getting too far afield here. The reasons for such actions should be obvious and I'm not going off to discuss them. BACK TO Galileo. One web site summed it up with a section titled: "Genius + arrogance _MINUS_ humility = deadly enemies" plus political changes at the same time. People today just don't seem to get that MANY things were often 'forgiven' back then, except gettin' on the wrong side of certain people. Galileo had illegitimate children, etc. YET, no trial for those things. [Cont.]
---danie9374 on 2/16/07

greetings.warwick.accusations do not erase facts; Is it no assumption that the sun is the parent of the earth and that parent clearly gives the earth light for photosynthesis from it's beginnings,there is no other. This is elementary.All primitive people have in ages past worshiped the sun and still do to this day.It stopped no one.
---earl on 2/16/07

[5] Just to put his life in historical perspective: Galileo lived until decades after the KJV came out in 1611; his first trial wasn't until 1616. This was well over 100 years after Copernicus declared his belief in a solar system far diff. than the Ptolemaic system, and many Church officials already saw evidence of it through Galileo's telescopes and accepted it as fact. So these trials were NOT as the media often portrays them. Copernicus lived 1473 to 1543 and Galileo lived: 1564 to 1642. [Cont.]
---danie9374 on 2/16/07

[6] There are dozens of pages you can read at sites like answersingenesis about Galileo and the details surrounding his trials.

Something related to this subject are the completely false tales that many people have accepted 'hook line and sinker' about how most 'Christians' during the time of Columbus thought the world was flat; that was actually a purposeful fictitious tale told in the 1800s which even the E.B. knows for a fact!

[1] Ed, well EVERYONE: If Warwick had the time, and space, I'm sure he'd point out some of the same things I will here: I've read a number of books over the years on Galileo and history of the RCC. Quite frankly, what kids are often blasted with in Media clips and esp. in schools now, and adults have just accepted as true about the events couldn't be further from the truth! In reality, his trials (as Warwick said) were only partially about his discoveries in the heavens (if at all). [Cont.]
---danie9374 on 2/16/07

[2] The idea that all the RCC hierarchy (not to mention all its members) saw the solar system as 'perfect spheres' with earth at its center, just wasn't so! AND many of them, including prominent Jesuits, had already decided Scripture made no such claim, and that such ideas had to be determined by other means! Like so many historical figures that come into conflict with the RCC, it's often more about POLITICS, irritating the wrong 'powerful people,' being disagreeable, pointing out 'friends' [cont.]
---danie9374 on 2/16/07

[3] of such people as being at the very least UN-biblical or worse, etc. etc. etc. which often got them in trouble with ruling authorities, rather than actually believing or saying something heretical about God. When you see what the Popes and bishops allowed those who swore loyalty to them to get away with, is it any wonder it's mostly the 'stubborn-minded' or true Believers wound up being persecuted?! Luther, e.g., was given some chances to easily have all charges against him dropped. But I'm [cont.]
---danie9374 on 2/16/07

Ed you need to get your FACTS straight! The Catholic Church persecuted Galileo! The Catholic Church has been involved with many of histories worst human violations. The TRUE Christians don't persecute anyone- on the contrary we believe in "LOVE your fellow man" as Jesus Christ taught us! To this day many Christians have tried to snatch people from the grasp of the Catholic Church, because it goes against the teaching of Christ- making it in a sense Antichrist!

Earl you've made a fatal flaw of reasoning by basing your photosynthesis comments on assumption-an unreasonable one.

Because you can't imagine why God would leave it until the fourth day to create the sun you assume He had no reason. Scripture says God knows the future from the beginning so He knew humans would worship the sun-so by leaving its creation to day four He demonstrates it is just another created thing and no created thing is to be worshipped. God does nothing for no reason.
---Warwick on 2/16/07

You must not be keeping up with world events lately, but- Many well respected Scientist have now converted to Creationism! Why? Because "Intelligent Design" has proved with FACTS, not THEORIES, that life could not have started by a Crazy Chance- "Chance-Evolution!" Uncovered FACTS have proved that life was created by Intelligent Design- GOD Almighty! By their own Pride, Evolutionist place themselves as Gods- but don't realize they are foolish! God's Creation is SCIENCE!
---DePuTy on 2/16/07

Ed-you have it backwards,Galileo's persecutors rejected his new scientific (observable)ideas because they accepted older Greek geo-centric beliefs,generally in vogue in these much later times.

Also history records Galileo as an extremely obnoxious man who got the influential Jesuits offside by ridiculing them- then they lobied the Pope to have Galileo proscribed.

As with Christians who believe in evolution the flaw is interpreting Scripture via mans changing non-Biblical philosophies.
---Warwick on 2/16/07


Your analogy is actually the opposite to what you are trying to prove.

Galileo's persecutors opposed science having any say in re-interpreting the position of Earth in God's universe.

In fact to use your analogy: the Creationists, of today, are like the persecutors of Galileo, in that both oppose science having any say in re-interpreting traditional religous belief.

Daniel, again I say you did a great job in answering Eloy and others. What I know is happening is that people read a context and believe it to be the way they intepreted it, and forget that other passages contradict that interpretation they had made but don't care to find out for themselves if what they had first was right or not. Many don't want to take the time, many have been taught one way, and refuse to listen. It does take work and much prayer but our desire should be to have it right.

Ed- in fact Galileo was persecuted by a section of the Roman Catholic Church which had accepted a non-biblical view which was current at the time and because of this rejected the truth which Galileo presented. Much like those Christians today who have accepted the anti-Biblical philosophy- evolution- and argue against those who accept a more straight forward understanding of Genesis.

The Bible including Genesis is not man's view at all but Gods revelation as attested to by Jesus the creator

greetings.Ed. i am in agreement with you.It is evident my 2 post was not posted.

Galileo was persecuted by Christians for the claims he made about the nature of the universe. Galileo was deeply religious. Poor man. We now know, of course, that the Earth isn't at the centre of the universe. Galileo was right all along. His great achievement was that he showed us just how sophisticated and majestic is the universe created by God.

Mark whenever the word day in Hebrew has a number with it it always means a normal day. Some linguistic research will show this. Further God adds 'there was evening and there was morning-the second day.'

You are right God is outside of time but days were created for people- work six,rest seventh. If the seventh day isn't a knowable day how would the Jews have known when to take their day of rest? Punishment for working on the Sabbath was death so it was kinda important to know when Sabbath was!

Warwick, It's important to point out the truths of Scripture when you see errors, but I want to let you know certain individuals who post at CN (such as 'earl'), seem completely engulfed by the idea much (or even all) of Scripture was actually intended to be allegorical, then teach it's up to them (alone?) to 'figure out' what it means! Anyone who disagrees is summarily dismissed as being UN-spiritual. HOWEVER, if those lies were actually true, Scripture would be just another 'could mean anything' tale.

Genesis- Even if accepted literally, does not place the earth at about 6,000 years old, but more at about less than 50,000 years old.
From Genesis 1 to 2:1&3 The Bible gives a quick 'SYNOPSIS' of ALL creation.

Notice what Genesis 2:4 states "This is the ACCOUNT of the heavens and the earth when they were CREATED." The Bible tells the past, present and future- Which means from this point on, the Bible is explaining ALL that has happend and will happen -End Time- Revelation 20!
---DePuTy on 2/12/07

This means that from Adam & Eve to Revelation 20, there is a period of about 7,000 years. We know this because the Bible CLEARLY gives the geneology! Other than Rapture & Tribulation, ALL we are waiting for is the 1,000 year reign of Christ!
In Genesis 1 to 2:1&3 - The creation 'Synopsis', Man ALONE is made on DAY 6. According to the Bible, Man will have been here on earth for about 7,000 years, before ALL that is written in the bible has comes to pass- fulfilled!
---DePuTy on 2/12/07

If Man ALONE was created on DAY 6. An the Bible has given an account of Man from Genesis 2:4 to Revelation 20; The Bible itself implies that ALL the other creation days from Genesis must contain the same 'time frame' because they are all mentioned as DAYS!
Genesis Day 1- 7,000 years.
Genesis Day 2- 7,000 years- and so forth!
In this equation- The universe and earth are at about less than 50,000 years old!
The bible is ALIVE and God gives man all knowledge needed!

Warwick- I see your back with the old Bishop Ussher idea, still fighting the Scopes trial. De faxto your dismissing ALL science, archeology, biology, anthropology, etc etc etc.-as, wholesale being 'wisdom of man, turning back the clock to the dark ages. I am reminded of the time as a teen the fundamentalist i knew held up their hands to block the view of the early man fossils in Balboa Park, that is not faith. Lets face it, by 'evolutionist' its meant All science.

Tbabe, Warwick (anyone interested in referencing other CN blogs or off-site pages): I used to make direct links in my posts to other blog pages here (e.g., see my direct link 11 posts up from bottom of CN page: 1152541368.htm), but for MANY months now they haven't allowed that either, so you're stuck with having to mention 'key words' one can 'Google for' or write links in ways that don't get caught by whatever FILTER program and/or person are checking for them.
