let me shake it up: creationism and evolution
Im going to throw the forum off its axel for a bit just because and its been a while since this pita has done so.
Lets begin with my revelation:
creationism and evolution, there is room for the both to exist. just read the book of genesis for what it is (whether youre a christian or not, im not trying to bother anyone with that), apply general scientific theory and youll see that man came from dust see Gen 2:7"And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul", before man a theory or theories known as the gap theory arises(between Gen 1:1 and 1:2 to be particular). in short this time span couldve been millions of years. i leave this open for your two-cents to include other pre-adamite conclusions and such (fyi, adam is just hebrew for man). i will say that scientific theories supports cataclysmic disasters like the flood meteors.
back to evolution, picture this theory as a single word with many many specific definitions or theories- those many definitions are what distract atheist and christians alike.
my take on creation science supports the gap theory and declines that man came from apes or animals evolved- that is scientifically wrong, show me PROOF where its true. in the beginning there were "kinds" of animals that were crossbred, period (not humans). the cavemen you see in museums have enlarged craniums and brows for these facts: your brow and scull will continue to grow as you age. they were hunched over and had larger knuckles because of something we call arthritis, which im sure youd have too if you lived off the land for over 100yrs. with that said i believe the earth had a atmosphere we are not familiar with today. an atmosphere before a great flood when the earth erupted and sky fell- so to say. men in that time lived hundreds of years which explains their skulls because they werent impacted by the sun and atmosphere as we are today.
what grinds my gears is how our vernacular can adopt such a broad word like evolution and wage war on it. there are so many types of evolution to define. what im supporting here is that we could have very well came from a single-cell, the planet is likely millions, dinosaurs werent always dinosaurs until the 1800's when the word came to be but called dragons (esp in scripture and in many other cultures), the flood occurred (in many cultures they speak of a great flood), and man lived much longer before the flood.
yes, im bringing to the table my views as a christian, i will not force them down anyone's throat but would like an atheist to chew on what theories both scripture and science supports.
