Question for creationists
Genesis 2:7 says God made man out of "the dust of the ground" (commonly referred to as "made man out of clay")

Why did God first make clay out of nothing, and then make man out of clay? Why not make man out of nothing, like everything else he created? And then there's the thing with the rib...

But wait.. I know 'God works in mysterious ways', so that is not my question to you.
My question is:
What would you have preferred? Being made out of nothing, or being made out of clay?

We scare them off quite efficiently I guess. Blush Assuming by the question the OP means YEC.

I think there are a few more dormant ones hanging around. Interesting people to talk to.

RE: Question for creationists
I've actually heard an answer to this. Allow me to provide it and refute it (efficiency at its best).

Some YECs say that we were made out of "the dust of the ground" because God wanted to make us naturally. You see, they claim that all of the elements that make up humans can be found in dust, and that's absolutely true... because a significant portion of dust is made up of dead skin cells.

The original dust of the ground would not have contained these skin cells because there was no one to shed them, and without those cells the raw materials for humans would disappear, too.

My girlfriend is mad at me. Perhaps I shouldn't have tried cooking a stick in her non-stick pan.

wow, never heard that before. Is that the ultimate sub-conscious acceptance of evolution?

Ever since the majority of the public started accepting that science held the best answers to our questions, Christians have tried to explain everything they can with science. Of course when science fails, that's when they fall back on supernatural explanations.
