I understand it perfectly RR. It's an agenda. They have a need to prove the Bible wrong. If they can do that, they feel justified in maintaining their atheism. That's why they disagree with me when I say that God's speaking wasn't the mechanism that flipped the cosmic light switch.
Genesis 1 states that God said "Let there be light." and then there was. A careful analysis demonstrates that God was declaring an intention, and then He accomplished the goal. It doesn't mean He uttered a cosmic rendition of "hocus pocus" and the light show started.
("Let there be light")------ unknown physical manifestation of energy ----("It is good")
God speaks intention to create ----- unknown process occurs ------ goal accomplished.
Now they have gone to the length of congratulating me for not interpreting it the way they feel the majority of Christians do interpret it. These congratulatory sentiments obviously indicate that both they and I recognize how silly it seems to believe the account in that way. But then they go and disagree with my interpretation and say it's a wrong interpretation!! Why? Because my interpretation removes the need to know ***how*** God created, and puts the focus back where it really belongs; which is ***why*** God created. This interpretation is logically coherent, and removes the empirical inquiry altogether. Remember that the atheist must maintain a naturalistic framework if they want to stay comfortable in that atheism. By correcting that misinterpretation in Genesis 1, the following is accomplished:
1) It puts a crack in the stereotype that we're ignorant of science.
2) It deprives them of a deliberate misrepresentation that they use to maintain their atheism.
3) It causes the honest skeptic to at least consider and reevaluate how the new interpretation ultimately makes more sense and supports the Christian (or Abrahamic theism) worldview.
I thank God for giving me the tools to use reason.:)

Question for Christians: how can you worship a deity which would potentially send your own children to Hell for what they believe?

The first time my second husband took me camping he brought half the house with us. When he pulled out a blow dryer I was like "wtf", and he smiled, "All the conveniences of home, baby. We aren't savages are we?" I didn't much see the point of calling it "roughing it" when we basically brought "home" with us. I just wanted to go home and sleep off the affront to my senses; he made it all so artificial, so plastic, so fkg pointless.

You were that affected by a hairdryer?

Moreover, Everything humans do could be deemed artificial. If you were wearing shoes, that's artificial too. Unless you were sleeping in a cave, your shelter was artificial. Driving to where you were camping was artificial. Etc etc etc.

No, I'm confident that Hindus, Moromons, and Scientologists exist. You don't think they do? Moreover, I did give you a specific example in the case of Scientology of John Travolta. Presumably he has anecdotal evidence that Xenu exists, or else he'd pick a different religion.

Um, no, reaping and sowing involve acts. I'm talking about thoughts and beliefs. You know, those things that you think are so intangible as to defy evidence.

You don't worship every deity which supposedly punishes non-believers, so ask yourself that question.

You're right, you can't bring a friggin hair dryer camping. Dudes shouldn't be using hair dryers anyway.
