<quoted text>Damn, I didn't even read your comment. You are a horrid excuse for a human being.
I'm a horrid human for trying to get you to save your soul?

Because I am pointing out there is a hash reality to your way of thinking.

By pointing out that your believe in all the matter in the universe could at one time fit on the head of a pin is a wilder statement then saying there is a God.

No it's you that are a horrid human.
You try to lead as many as possible to Hell.

You comment was making correction on Gods creations as if you could have done better. You could not possible understand the creators reasons for how and why he created the way he did.

It's nice the way Atheist twist and lie to try and ruin the credibility of a Theist.

<quoted text>Who cares if the Earth was flat three thousand years ago? It's not flat now.
"One thing to keep in mind when reading the Bible. Eastern cultures used a lot more symbolic language in their writings than we westerners do. Because of this we westerners miss a lot of the meanings in the Bible. A prime example of this can be seen in my analysis of the Parable of the Prodigal Son ( http://www.answerbag.com/a_view/164399 ). So, I have to agree with the others that have answered this. The writer of this passage is using symbolic language to say that God is founder of the world. He created it. Therefore, without Him there would be no world on which we could live."

<quoted text>Flat square circular non-spherical geocentric Earth:

http://www.lhup.edu/~dsimanek/febible.htm
http://www.geocentricity.com/astronomy_of_bib...

"The fact that this verse speaks of the "circle of the earth" can mean one of three things: 1) the earth is not a flat square but a flat circle. If that is true then what of the four corners of the earth? A flat circle has no corners. 2) the earth is shaped in a way that is spheroidal but has a square cross-section somewhere, at the equator, for example. 3) the earth is spheroidal in shape. This latter opinion is further strengthened by observing the reference to the inhabitants as grasshoppers, implying a perspective from on high, particularly, the outermost heaven.

Isaiah 40:22 is not the only verse in the Bible which speaks of the circle as descriptive of the shape of the earth. Proverbs 8:27 reads:
When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth...
The word "compass" can mean a circular enclosure or a spherical envelope. Since the verse speaks of an extended area -- some three-quarters of the surface of the earth -- the spherical enclosure for "compass" is a better interpretation than a circular enclosure."

This of course is yet another lie.
"Is the Bible just a collection of myths and legends, or is it the inspired word of God? Many assume that modern scholarship has discredited the Bible, but the facts of history — and the discoveries of archaeology — confirm its contents to be true! The Bible recounts the past with amazing accuracy — and it predicts the future like no other book! Most of the world has been misled and misinformed about the Bible. "

<quoted text>The point is that locust and all insects have 6 legs. Describing them as four legged would be incorrect. If you look at a typical grasshopper species including migratory locusts, the hind legs are larger and longer, but are not above the prothoracic and mesothoracic legs. The origin of all six legs is in roughly the same plane along the thorax. Because of the length of the metathoracic (hind) legs and their specialization for walking and jumping, parts of the leg may be above the insect body depending on what the insect is doing at the time. The tarsi (feet) would be in the same line as whatever substrate the insect was on. In other words, on a flat surface, the feet would be on the same plane.

The Biblical description you site above is misleading and not wholy accurate.

By the way, beetles existing at the writing of the old testament, would likely be the same species as today.
Yes beetles did exist back then.

Just like football exists in Europe how ever it's a totally different game then the NFL game.

Beetles by that name back then and in that language was not what we call a beetle today.
