You're entitled to your dataless opinion.

But the historical fact is that Gen 1 and Gen 2 have different authors and different details. The compilers of the Torah obviously felt compelled to include both of them even though they are contradictory.

A day in Gen 1 is (obvious even to a child) the same as we typically use in its literal sense.

As day most often means 24 hour period you certainly must have some data that indicates that Gen 1 does NOT mean it in that way.'

Right?

Other than you cult handlers, of course.
How does calling the light "day" equate to 24 hours?

I'm left providing confirming data refuting your dataless and data deficient assertions. As usual.

You seem to have an opinion of yourself that no one else shares. We have a word for that.

You are demonstrably incorrect yet again!

And again you cannot prove it.
nor provide evidence.

You don't have to say it. We know.
Physical data weighs heavily against that unnecessary conclusion.

The words "evidence" or "logic" are not used in the original language text. They're not Greek words. Think about it.

That is my point. Thank you.

There are not any words in the text that could logically or rationally be translated as 'evidence' or 'logic'.

Neither evidence nor logic are mention in the text.
You may be hallucinating if you see the words evidence or logic in Heb. 11:1

You would be better served citing an expert reference to make your case including providing actual data. Your reasoning may or may not be valid/applicable in all its parts, but without more specifics and confirming data it's just your dataless reasoning.
Please remember how much I lover pointing out examples of projection.
It's clear you have no qualms about wasting life. As long as the life you waste is your own alone, no harm no foul.

You apparently didn't notice that your post was in response to data I provided.

This would be a lie. You lie with authority of the author of lies.

I provided the entire chapter in context (DATA) which you were not able to respond to (as usual).

So, you're saying that the way the word is used depends upon the physical evidence we discover. Fascinating.

3 Then God said,“Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. So there was evening, and there was morning, one day.

14 God said,“Let there be lights in the dome of the sky to divide the day from the night; let them be for signs, seasons, days and years; 15 and let them be for lights in the dome of the sky to give light to the earth”; and that is how it was. 16 God made the two great lights — the larger light to rule the day and the smaller light to rule the night — and the stars. 17 God put them in the dome of the sky to give light to the earth, 18 to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. 19 So there was evening, and there was morning, a fourth day.

Again, 24 hours is a red herring.

If you would be satisfied that 5 bottlenecks fitting the 4500 years ago timeframe confirmed the global flood, I would put forth the effort, otherwise not.

Oh, now you want to bring PHYSICAL DATA into this?

Are you sure you want to do that buddy boy?

That would sort of CLOSE the flood gates, wouldn't it?

I let you think about bringing PHYSICAL DATA into this. Till then we have the words of the Bible. And you are left with a problem. What will you choose? Your cults dogma, or the Bible? Or (since you have provided a 3rd option) the PHYSICAL DATA!

Bwhahahahahahahaha

Now you have me right where I want you!

That is the data, the methodology, the confirmation.
I have identified the lack of confirmation in your offering thusfar.

I would think 5 bottlenecks would be a good start. But we already have 3 dis-confirming that so you are already in something of a hole.

Give it a crack. It will be nice to see you present some data for a change.
