Bah. Watchamean is doing the normal Christian troll thing of only answering the weakest rhetoric.Add, give me your one best argument for your belief that mankind evolved from a lower life form. Don't hop around from fossils to dna, etc. Just pick one subject that you think best proves we are products of evolution.
<PEDANTIC MODE> And who will be the judge of whether I have beaten your argument? </PEDANTIC MODE>
<PEDANTIC MODE> I gave you some decent questions to answer, and you evaded them. </PEDANTIC MODE>
Basically, no answer to the rhetorical question you just posed above will satisfy you, because no matter what you find out, by researching evolution or listening to argument, your faith
is apparently dependent on the Bible being literally true in its entirety. Christians who have another proof of God
, that is what they claim direct experience
are not particularly fussed about the story in Genesis, which can't be true anyway.
Most Jews and Christians have abandoned it as a literal account, because it means something metaphorical to them.
I don't know whether you noticed, but in the creation story, God creates day and night, independent of the sun. The writer claims that a layer of water is above the sun and stars, and God created sun and stars as an afterthought, so that man could have "signs". The sun merely "rules the day", as if day is an inherent property without sun. (I know why they thought this.) He even creates the sun after plant life. If you demonstrate that evolution is false, then by your logic, we have to fall back on this joke as the only answer, do we?Liberal Christians have a God who is smart enough to create a universe that can self-assemble life from amino acids; why is your God not smart enough to do this?
I have an explanation for you.
You want to defend Christianity on all fronts, whether they are contradictory, or not. I have seen Christians defend both ID and YEC at the same time. You don't want to explain the universe. You just want to use it as a bargaining chip in your snowstorm of misdirection.
Evolutionists did not invent evolution to thwart people like you. They invented it, because it best explains what we see out there. If you have nothing else to prove that Hebrew-God exists, besides the accuracy of the Genesis, then you are treading on zero ice. I hope you can walk on water, like Jesu.
