RE: Questions to a Bible-Believing Christian
If the god of the bible and bible are true, god must be just playing with us. It's obvious, all the long walks in deserts and drowning people and animals would'nt have been necessary, just if god would have wanted to use his magic wand.

Correct me when I'm wrong.
Accept me or go to hell.

Yes, it there are easier ways to just kill off a population, but if you want to scare the masses into submission, the threat of mega-overkill is a lot more awe inspiring.

RE: Questions to a Bible-Believing Christian
ALex--Even though it says in Genesis that Adam and Eve were the first people, after Cain killed Abel he went to the Land of Nod where there were already other people living (makes perfect sense, huh?) and found a wife and started having kids.
When I was a kid, I could read quite well at an early age. I tried to read the Bible (My Grandmother gave me one--my parents were Non-religious), and right off the bat that made NO SENSE to me, so I took the rest of it with a grain of salt.

Good catch. I had tuned out by that point.

RE: Questions to a Bible-Believing Christian
If you take the Genesis account of creation to be literally true than which version of creation do you believe? There are two creation versions; chapter 1 and chapter 2, both contradictory in some ways.

Yes.

RE: Questions to a Bible-Believing Christian
The judaeo-christian bible is laced with contradictory accounts of things, mythical 'explanations' for the real world, and logical fallacies. It is clearly a product of late Bronze age (and earlier) societies that had only recently emerged from barbarism into collective activities based on agriculture. That it is purported to have had a divine inspiration is to infer that the deity behind it is an idiot, homicidal, and psychotically self-centered.

Every radioactive chemical on Earth has a half-life. If we know the amount of chemical in a substance now, we can use the knowledge of the chemical's half-life to trace its age. The less of the substance remaining, the older the rock is.

I´m sorry, this really is splitting hears, but i will correct you anyway. The age of rock is determined not simply by measuring how much of a radioactive material is left in it. this would not tell you anything, since you have no idea of how much of the material was in the rock in the first place. You need to measure how much radioactive material is in it, and also how much there is of the material it deteriorates into. The ratio + knowledge of the half-life gives you the age.
Like I said. Hairsplitting. But gaining and spreading information is kind of my thing, so thanks for amusing me. Smile

It's no problem. Actually, I corrected myself later in the thread, when Barley asked for more information.

Welcome to TTAF, by the way.
