You only have God given rights if you are straight and white and don't have any common sense! GO Nazis and Skinheads..... I mean religious right republicans.
I believe it says that there is only one judge and it seems like you are doing alot of judging yourself. So maybe you should think real hard before you start pretending you are God and condemning people to Hell.

God keeps trying to help humans by giving us a few clues as we use our feeble brain to understand things things like Carbon dating, archaeology, palentology,
evolution, astronomy, physics, chemistry physiology,etc.
All of these subjects help us understand "God's Laws" of the the World God created.
These are what God gave us to enjoy and understand.
By understanding those mysteries God Created, we
grow to understand the Greatness of God, and by accepting the Love of God by sending his Son to and I paraphrase a President of a prestigious Southern Baptist University, Baylor University, God sent his Son to save us from our Sins NOT our minds.
So perhaps we should start to ask,
How old is God?
Again you are quoting your opinion!!! WORTHLESS,no where does the bible quote what you are spiting out and the president of Baylor is no different from you,and you are trying to add things to the bible that are not there,in my opinion you are trying to find ways around the bible which is impossible,men have been doing that since god created the earth,please dont try to impress us with your education or studies because some of the dumbest ppl on earth are educated.

<quoted text>Where did you get this info,i can tell you that according to the years in the bible are just over 6000 years old,to be exact we cant,because its not recorded how long Adam and Eve was in the garden of Eden but the only record to man is the bible and according to it just over 6000 yrs,yes i know they are always finding this and that and its dated this and that but its just bull like global warming,but global warming or not its never going to effect us on earth as far as our survival,yes there will always be climate changes but never is it going to effect us.
I can tell by your post that you are an ignorant,inbred,back woods moron..

<quoted text>Why would God create billions of planets that we'll never be able to reach. Did God create everything for man or what? A few thousand years ago the whole universe consisted of a few thousand square miles in Africa. Are we not supposed to use the common sense that we were born with? The "magic" was all they had at one time. They couldn't understand anything otherwise.
Where did you get this idea that the universe consisted of a few sq.miles of Africa?could you please tell us where?

Sad that some people who want to portray themselves as "Bible believing Christians" can be the most hateful and condemning of all people. I think they win few to Christ.
The truth is the Bible is true and so is gravity, relativity, algebra, addition, calculus, evolution, and that the earth is billions of years old. Understanding the chemistry and physics behind the sciences has only given me a greater appreciation of what God has done and the how of some of it. It is awesome.
I understand that ignorance is a comfortable place. Jesus and Paul did as well and fought against it. They brought light and truth. If you study the theory of relativity and begin to understand it, you will be struck at how what the Bible says about light agrees with relativity and visa-versa.
Christ died and was raised from the dead. All is possible with God.
You have no proof of evolution,why would you quote this when you have nothing to back it up,but go ahead and try but be specific on how man got here or anyother living thing including the earth.

Evolution has nothing to back it up.....except facts, hard evidence, genetics,,...you know, testable, tangible, verifiable stuff like that.

BTW: The earth isn't "alive". Only the organisms on it. Attempting to equate the formation of the earth with evolution is proof of ones utter ignorance.

I think one mistake many people make (non-Christians, Christians, etc.) is that the Bible is to assume written from a human perspective. While it is written to humans by humans, the inspiration is from another place, a timeless place, a spiritual place.
There is certainly a "dimensionality" to existance. String theory claims at least 11 dimensions and it is the most popular theory currently. We live in 4 dimensions (time and space). I think that spirituality is one of those 7 left.
The Bible essentially says it is not of this world (4 dimensions). Relativity opens the door to things like the transfiguration on the mount where Jesus met with Moses, etc., and Peter wanted to build an alter. Jesus pushed back on that, he understood the past and the future and implications of such a thing.
Regarding issues of miracles and Corvettes, there are issues in relativity of paradox that will not allow such things. But relativity will allow for physical changes (energy/mass transmutation, etc.) that will allow for healing, regrowing an arm, etc.
Matter & energy interchangeable in real-time.
You!!! Would refur to yourself as a christian yet you believe evolution,evolution is nothing but a way of saying the bible is not true only a way around what it teaches,you can gather all of the junk you want but you will never be able to convince anyone with any bible knoledge that evolution existed,just because some person said it or printed it will not make it true so if you want to push evolution then your going to have to come up with solid evidence,you can slober out all of the bull you want but its worthless,you have no proof,how did the earth get here,man,night,day,water,seed, plant a rock and see if you grow rocks,plant any seed and you will produce what ever seed you plant,why because god formed the seed and made it that way,its as simple as it sounds god gave this to man after he made the earth.

<quoted text>Well, part of the bible is history. It's when they get to the crazy stuff that you have to step back. You have to be a moron to ignore the evidence that we have now. That is a huge problem with the churches. Jesus, Moses and John played a very important part in our history. If you can look at the Grand Canyon and believe it was created in a day you are not exactly a genius!
I like this "THE EARTH IS PART OF HISTORY"thats a good one.

Well, for those that want to say there is no evidence for evolution, the following will help you:

http://www.nature.com/nature/newspdf/evolutio...

Lots of evidence.

Lol et al, regarding a person believing in evolution precluding the possibility that the person could also be a Christian: You are wrong. According to my Bible the criteria is that a person believe on the Son of God (Christ) and him risen from the dead by God. Confess that with the mouth and you are a Christian. I have done a considerable amount of study in both the NT & OT and it all leads to the simple message of the belief above.

Now, I grew up without belief, an orphan that lived with many families, had a substantial drug habit by 19, was involved in just about every form of physical and sexual abuse (as both victim and perpetrator), and had my life touched by crimes all the way to murder. I grew up in a pretty rough place. In a suicidal state in my late teens and very sick, I do believe it was Christ that saved me, healed me. Saved me to help me go on to get an advanced degree in chemistry, have a very successful career in research yielding a number of significant patents and have had a very prosperous adult life. I have been able to help many people.

Now, I give the credit to Christ and as with Paul, "count it all as dung" compared to what Christ did for me (both here on earth and in life thereafter).
Like Paul, he delivered me from a hell on earth and I owe him everything.

I give God and Christ the credit.

Now, I see what was done for me as a witness to the power of the belief in the savior. You may have a better explaination as you are certain I cannot believe in evolution and be saved. Perhaps I should deny the earth goes around the sun, that space is larger than what I can see in the sky, relativity is only a theory (never mind all the evidence it is the best tool we have of how the universe can be described and understood). Would that help you? I could go on, but you clearly have Christianity completely figured out and will limit God to your clear focus of his plan. There is no room for you to learn, you are too well informed, so well studied.

How many people have you brought to Christ?

The earth is older than Adam. The bible says that Adam and Eve's sons took wives from the land of Nod.
I don't know where Nod was but it clearly means there were other people around besides Adam and Eve.
The old testament is about the history of the Jews and the lineage of Jesus.
There is scientific evidence that the earth has gone through major changes and cataclysmic events and is older than Adam. That doesn't mean Adam wasn't created by God. God may have created other people elsewhere at the same time. Maybe no one kept a record of their origins or the record was lost.
God commanded to replenish the earth. That sounds like to me that it was once inhabited and the people were wiped out.

Older,

Well said. Many people would like to cross the word "replenish" out of their Bible as they cannot explain it.

The first chapter of Genesis from 1:1-1:28 is a very good description of creation at and after the Big Bang through progressive evolution of the material universe through the progressive evolution of life on earth to the creation of Adam, "a man."

Simple life started in the waters and moved up to land. The increasing sophistication is clear in that chapter. It reads like the story written from an outside perspective inspired by a day not being 24 hours. A day is LIKE a 1000 years. "Like" in that it can be an era much shorter or much longer. It is not necessarily a fixed amount of time, but a "time-period."

God is not limited to the literal but can use metaphor, allegory, figure, etc. I think God has a stronger understanding and use of language than anyone here.

Is there some reason God doesn't want his word to be clear and easy to understand? Maybe it's not the word of God. Maybe a few poor fishermen tried to document a new religion? Hence, the bible.
