Or with chickens. For... no reason whatsoever.

Thus, "God" is a non-scientific concept.
He could have, but didn't.

Well if he was "God is a non-scientific concept." then you could not teach science in school.

Pretty good idea for science to stay away from God, look at all the funding they would lose if they did include God!

So for now they will just have to play with his creations.

"ignorant Bronze-age shepards"
"The Bronze Age primarily took place between 3500 BC and 1200 BC, and is traditionally divided into the Early Bronze Age (c.3500-2000 BC), Middle Bronze Age (c.2000-1600 BC), and Late Bronze Age (c.1600-1200 BC). with progressively more sophisticated metallurgy which culminates in the discovery of ironworking.
The Bronze Age began 5,500 years ago in the present-day areas of Turkey, Iran, and Iraq, which was also the cradle of human civilization. By this time permanent settlements were already a few thousands years old, but it took time for these early people to discover the potential of metallic ores. The birthplace of metallurgy is usually taken to be Anatolia, Turkey. The Indian Bronze Age began in 3300 BC with the Indus Valley civilization. In China and southeast Asia, the Bronze Age began around 2100 BC. Throughout Europe the Bronze Age began between 2100 BC and 2000 BC or so, with sophisticated Bronze Age civilizations rising throughout the 2nd millennium BC."
Yes.

I agree with everything you cut/pasted.

Which is why I phrased my post the way I did, saying the Bronze-age shepards were **RELATIVELY** and **IGNORANT** peoples (hint: I didn't say they were "stupid" or "retarded").

If you were to look up the definitions of the two words I DID use, then you would know that there was no demeaning of the Bronze-age peoples implied.

They were as intelligent and as curious as modern man. They simply didn't have our advantage of several thousands of years of scientific investigation and technology.

So according to the bible,the sun(a star)existed before the development of the earth(a planet)which I believe,is pretty much true to astronomy.

do you believe every myth on the planet? why not, they are as credible as your story of the 'soul'...(actually more so, at least i have gotten candy from the Easter Bunny..)

You don't have a clue? How long have you been battling the bible and today you don't have a clue as to where one would base their belief on the existence of there soul.

Are you that dumb?
Or do you believe we are that dumb to buy into your crap?

If anything, I'm suggesting that people are inherently bad. It just so happens that they behave better when they remember bad times, which religions often create, so it's a bit hard to separate the two.
If that was true then civilization would never have succeeded at all. It would have destroyed itself and we'd still be hunting in Africa with dwindling numbers instead of becoming the superior species. The traits called "conscience" and "empathy" are common to the most successful species on this planet. Even simply caring for our young is "good," by any standard. The majority of humans are willing to even risk their own lives for each other, that is evident in the number of volunteer soldiers and emergency response teams. If there was no "good" in humans, we'd not have medicine at all.

Well, considering that no religious texts have been demonstrated any more accurate than a Superman comic, the question is valid. You have zero evidence of a soul, so why do you believe in one? My guess is wishful thinking, you fear discovering that you are wrong, so you just wish for a soul, even if such a thing doesn't exist.

Actually, the planets would be forming at the same time as the protosun is gaining mass. they could be pretty well formed before the sun ignites, as the solar wind would blow much of the lighter elements out of the planetary accretion disk.

No.....

Day 1: Sky, Earth, light
Day 2: Water, both in ocean basins and above the sky(!)
Day 3: Plants
Day 4: Sun, Moon, stars
Day 5: "every living creature that moveth"
Day 6: Humans (apparently both sexes at the same time)

Note that on Day 3, God was to have created plants. Where did God place them? Floating in space?

Day 4 was Sun/Moon/Stars.

Of course this was Genesis ONE. Genesis TWO has a completely different order of Creation.

Oh, I know where you got the cult teachings, i clearly asked why you believe it when it comes with all the other proven lies and has less credibility than the Easter bunny story...
