Yeah, it's a word defined by man which I suspect doesn't quite cover God. You are still free to choose.
It's nice to see you are another Christian being quite selective in what you answer to. Cutting out the large chunk of my post where I show your concept of God to be faulty and then say "Nu-uh, it's still the way I want it to be" is not gonna fly here.
Does God know everything? Yes or No
Is God the creator of everything? Yes or No
Yet, we continue to bring children into this world everyday. Not that we created it, but we are fully aware of it. I believe God created us in love knowing full well the potential for pain and suffering. I'm confident it will be worth it.
As it has already been said: The difference is that God supposedly created this world.
That means he willingly and knowingly created a world dooming uncounted billions to neverending torture. He did not just know about it he wanted it that way!
Water=universal ingredient. Earth=different. Some stuff from water; some stuff from water+earth.
Moving the goal post.
You and the bible say ground creatures are made from dirt
, which simply is not true.
But, I believe DNA is God's building block. To me, the commonality supports the idea of a common designer.
Man 'effed up the environment. The design mechanism is solid.
Tell me in which way the environmental change led to humans
- having wisdom teeth that often don't fit into the mouth, causing abscesses which in turn can also cause damage to the jaw and even the brain
- having the testicles outside the male body
- having our abdomen completely unprotected
- having an appendix which is not only useless for humans but can actually kill them if not medically extracted.
- having a pelvis in females that is too small for babies heads, often causing injuries during birth
- having hip joints that are more suited for walking on all fours but that damage easily and are prone to deteriorate with age when installed in a biped (which would be us)
- having DNA which causes congenital birth effects leading to babies born with partial gills or tumors of notochord (a type of tissue we don't need at all because we have a spine out of bone. It's only found in ancient animals before the development of the spine of bone)
- having poorly designed foot and ankle bones that would be fine in a quadruped but cause problems if used in a biped.
- having large veins in our legs that can clog up and send out blood clogs to the lungs and brain.
- having semi soft disc material in our spine and neck which is fine for quadrupeds but unsuitable for bipeds because it will be compressed by the body weight too much and can cause painful traumas.
- etc, etc. etc.
