Look, Rouge is gonna give me a science lesson...<quoted text>
Ah, just how does the Sun provide oxygen? And the heavy elements that are hear on Earth came from other stars after they are destroyed in super novas.
The sun provides you with a replenishable source of oxygen through photosynthesis.(driven by sunlight)
And you are repeating what I said. The Sun, the Earth, and all of our solar systems moons came from a star...a huge one.
Science is simply the investigation of nature.Now, as a Christian, it is possible to believe in science and nature at the same time. Now I have no idea what "a day" is to God but I do believe in Divine Design where God directs nature.
Now, as a christian, it is possible to believe absolutely anything at all...
Armys rising from the dead, people with supernatural strength, humans with a thousand + years lifespan, people who can magically control the weather, staffs that turn into snakes, the parting of seas and rivers, precognition, shapeshifting, faith healing, someone living in a big fish for 3 days, giants, talking snakes, Noah's ark, firey sky chariots, the devil (presumably demons), acceptable genocide, people who can bring rain and fire, and divine design.
No one in their proper mind could soundly state that the Earth was created for the cultivation of humans. If so, it is one of the most cruel jokes.
Awesome theory Rouge! The brightest christian appologist have been working on this for a long time. Do the math! Maybe you can be the one guy in history to make any of it fit.Yes, I believe that is possible for the Earth to be 8,600 years old at the same time in is 4.5 billion years old. One is in God's years and the other mankind's years.Just as an Earth year is longer than those of Mercury and Venus and shorter than the other planets further out from our Sun.
An example is Pluto so if Pluto and Earth were created at the same time, Earth would be about 4.5 billion years old while Pluto's would be only about 18 million Pluto years old. Yes, it takes Pluto about 248 Earth years to orbit our Sun!
Hell, if you figure out how god percieves time we can possibly triangulate his position!
Now...put that bit of actual knowledge to use for a min.You see, while compared to an ant, we humans are large but compared to an elephant, we are small! Everything is relative
The Milky Way is made up of 400 billion stars. Most with their own complete solar systems similar to ours. The vastness of our galaxy is staggering. Yet, it is a very small galaxy. We know of approx 400 billion other galaxies...there could be trillions. The Universe makes our staggeringly huge galaxy look like a dust particle in a sunbeam.
You believe a simple carbon based life form in the boondocks of an insignificant galaxy...on a tiny planet, orbiting a common place yellow star has the POWER to sin against a god who created ALL!
Arrogance is relative.
Even if there was a god.
He would be above it.
