Genesis 2:18-20

. In the present thread, I wish to clarify and discuss something. First, I cite the record that I have in mind: In the locked thread that I started on Genesis 1 (http://discussions.godandscience.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=41201), B.W. had said to me: Your statement makes it sound like God was seeking i...

Re: Genesis 1 and Earth's Life-support System

The bible teaches us there are 3 heavens 2nd Corinthians 12:2 and we know the first heaven is the earth's atmosphere,the second heaven outerspace and the third heaven where God is.So why should we focus only on the first heaven in Genesis 1:2-10? Your reasoning here presumes things that, in my view...

Genesis 1 and Earth's Life-support System

. (FIY: I'm really sorry for the last thread on this topic. I should have opened a new topic for my own off-topic replies to the off-topic replies by others there. In the present thread, I will stay on topic: I shall, in this thread, let off-topic replies remain un-answered by me.) I am YEC, but I d...

Why Did God Create Using Any Processes At All?

. Suppose you, a Christian, got a call from someone claiming to believe in God. This person denies that Genesis 1 is true. This person says that Genesis 1 appeals to naturalism, and therefore must be a pagan story. This person further says that God would not create in such a way as to allow the acc...

Re: Genesis 1:2-12 and the Hydrologic Cycle

. ...Second, you are assuming that all the kinds of (land) animals that God created were the relatively 'endless' varieties that we have today. Third, this last assumption overlooks the fact that the issue is not varieties within a kind, but the kind itself. So what I am hearing you say is that YEC...

Re: Rick Warren deception

. Warren is naïve about many things, as is John Piper. But, apparently from this video, both have assumed that they are addressing Christians, and that Christians would understand this in their books. Warren's teachings are addressed to Christians, not to just anyone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Re: Genesis 1:2-12 and the Hydrologic Cycle

. First, the special context of Adam's naming the animals is clear: it is in relation to finding a suitable companion-mate. If no special context was clear in the passage, then your argument would be valid. Second, you are assuming that all the kinds of (land) animals that God created were the rela...

Re: The Deeps

. He takes ii Peter 3:5 without its own context of the prior verse. Peter is talking about the Flood, and about the fact that people either forget or deny the Flood. The Flood is the Sufficient Witness to a wicked world, but that world is unwilling to grant that Witness. Today, many are happy to al...

Genesis 1:2-12 and the Hydrologic Cycle

. When I read Genesis 1:2-10, I see the creation of the geophysical portion of Earth's Hydrological Cycle. I assume that the Hydrologic Cycle is Irreducibly Complex (ID), just as is said of living organisms by my fellow YEC’s. If the Hydrologic Cycle is ID, then what is the number and kinds of most...

Re: Ken Ham vs Hugh Ross Young or Old earth debate on TBN

When opposing each other, I do not see either man as knowing much more than their own dogma. I am mostly on the side of Ken Ham, in that my own position is Young Earth and Young Cosmos (no gaps there, either). But I find a number of Ross's teachings theologically spot-on, especially some of those of...
