NO PROBLEM:
Leviticus 11:20 " All flying insects that walk on all fours are to be detestable to you." - insects do not have 4 legs. There are also no birds that go around on 4 legs.
Matthew 13:31: "The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: 13:32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof."

Job 9:6: "Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble." - The earth doesn't rest on pillars, it is a celestial body, encircling the sun and spinning.
And a "few" more: http://skepticsannotatedbible.com/science/lon... .

as you can see by the picture it becomes the size of a small tree and is big enough for the birds to lodge in.

leviticus 11:20
new living translation
"you must not eat winged insects that walk along the ground; they are detestable to you.
notice it does not mention “four legs”

leviticus 11:13-19
international standard version
"these are detestable things for you among winged creatures that you are not to eat, because they are detestable for you: the eagle, vulture, osprey………
notice it does not mention “birds or fowl”

revelation 8:10
according to the genesis creation myth, the earth was formed before the sun. this is wrong. it does not match the current scientific theories of solar system forming but also the gravity laws of newton.
you expect science and religion to agree?

i could pick apart the rest as well but see no point in doing so. when people like yourself are so wrapped up into what they believe they choose ignorant ways to try to show they are right and the other side is wrong. creationists do it all the time. there are science nuts and religious nuts that actually cause more harm to their side than good because they will go to no ends trying to show they are right by mis-interpreting, deceitfulness, prejudice, spitefulness, hatefulness, and stupidness to name a few. these forums and threads are full of both.

The New Living Translation dropped the four legs that was in the original. The translators knew it was an error. And though that bush picture looks rather large there is nothing there that identifies it as a mustard plant. In fact if you look up sources on white mustard, which is the Middle East variety you will find it only gets to be about five foot tall:

Hardly a "tree". And if you check I do believe that you can find smaller seeds. Most orchids for example have smaller seeds than the mustard plant.

It is no tree. Only bronze age dessert dwellers produce the wrong phylogeny.
Not to blame the bronze age dessert dwellers but the many Christians in 21st century who read this crap and say that the bible has to be taken literally.

"you must not eat winged insects that walk along the ground; they are detestable to you.

Well, nice NITPICKING, here we have some more bible interpretations: http://biblehub.com/leviticus/11-20.htm . MOST of them mention FOUR. That's the very next problem with the bible: you NEVER know what you deal with. 1 million believers, 1 million versions. I stick to the majority of the translations if you don't mind. I think that they represent the original Hebrew text best. The KJB is most favourite among YEC. HENCE I'll stick to that one particularly. It mentions four.
Also the International Standard Version you use below: "and any winged insect that crawls on FOUR legs".

leviticus 11:13-19
international standard version
"these are detestable things for you among winged creatures that you are not to eat, because they are detestable for you: the eagle, vulture, osprey………
notice it does not mention “birds or fowl”

YET the very next translation version? You are jumping to and fro like a flea.
AND you are lying and deceiving here:
http://biblehub.com/leviticus/.htm (20 versions):
Leviticus 11:16: "the owl", "the owl", "the owl" etc. 12 times.
Leviticus 11:17: "the owl", "the owl", "the owl" etc. 19 times.
BTW, Leviticus 11:17, INTERNATIONAL STANDARD VERSION: "OWLS, cormorants, the ibis". As usual you did a lousy job not only by jumping to the version that suits you but also by not reading the whole lines in the one you choose.

No birds? the white owl, the desert owl, the Egyptian vulture, the carrion vulture, the pelican, the osprey, the swan, the stork, any kind of heron, the hoopoe, the lapwing, the charadrion, the cormorant, the ibis, the gannet, the gull, any kind of hawk, the cuckow, the ostrich, the falcon, the larus, the seamew, ravens, crows, the kite, the cormorant, the buzzard, and, starting the riddle in Levitius 11:13 "These are the BIRDS you are to regard as unclean and not eat because they are unclean:.... <list>" according to 12 versions.
SURE, "no" birds mentioned.

The bat is NOT a bird, it's a mammal. It doesn't belong in that list, even irrespective of the list beginning with the word "bird".

revelation 8:10
according to the genesis creation myth, the earth was formed before the sun. this is wrong. it does not match the current scientific theories of solar system forming but also the gravity laws of newton.

"you expect science and religion to agree?"

IRRELEVANT. We were not talking here about the level of agreement between religion and science but the bible been incorrect.

I have enough of this tattles.

I already assumed that there had been much tinkering in the biblical translations to wipe out such errors. You can smell it. Hence it is deceit. It is just papering over mistakes. But I couldn't prove it and didn't like to look it up. Thanks for endorsing my presentiment.

It explains the weird KJV translation: "And these are they which you shall hold in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the vulture, and the osprey, etc.". But "fowl" is another word for birds/poultry, isn't it. WELL, a bat is not among the fowls. It is a mammal.

STILL WRONG.

No IT IS VERY RELEVANT.
It tells about bible translation versions that are papered over.
For instance to cover up the mistake of the four legs of insects and the word "birds", that were unmistakably present in the original texts of the OT.

Which is DECEIT.
And also questioning the word of God.
they end up in hell if they don't pay attention.
RIDICULOUSNESS.

fact is no one here, including myself, know what the first original bible says. until one of us know, we are arguing on biased stances. you claiming the bible says something by various translations to try to prove it wrong and stupid for evolutions sake and me doing the same thing but producing a different translation that says it differently showing how it can be mis-interpreted. i think much of the translated bible i have read are a bunch of bs but i am not going to lie to make it seem that way since i have no clue of what the original writings say.

That is extremely weak evidence that that is a mustard plant. Especially since various sources all say that they only grow to five feet tall. Yes, that is a big bush. You had no source for it. Someone claims that it is a mustard plant but we do not know if that person can tell a mustard plant from a hole in the ground.

Your Bible verses are still failing and you are still the idiot jack wagon, this time for using bogus sources.

Yes, wondering seems to be a creatard in disguise. He pretends to accept evolution but when shown errors in the Bible or told of them his gut reaction paints him as a fundamentalist. And though creationists claim to follow the Ten Commandments they all think it is okay to lie as long as you are lying for Jesus.
