Re: RE: In the Beginning

KBCid, What you should understand here is that unless you can provide a reference in ancient hebrew to an abstract concept such as ex-nihilo then you cannot assume that they were implying this abstract concept in their text. I already did. 2 Maccabees teaches it and the Book of Jubilees teaches that...

Re: RE: In the Beginning

KBCid' I have taken the time to research the beginnings of the concept of ex-nihilo. It begins to show up near the time of Christ which would be logical as written language had evolved to the point where abstract concepts were then becoming able to be represented via textual references. What do you ...

Re: Definition of "Kind"

adocus, We are dealing with a single Hebrew word and the Bible's definition fits something on the order of genus or species. You have given no possitive evidence to support a different meaning of min. Please stop dodging the issue and give us your evidence. Lev. 11 13 'These, moreover, you shall det...

Re: Speciation

adocus, I admitted a mistake in the way I expressed the phrase, but that does not change the truth in what I said. I am not being vague. We are dealing with a single Hebrew word and the Bible's definition fits something on the order of genus or species. You have given no possitive evidence to suppor...

Re: Evolution and Intelligent Design

adocus, I assume you do not mean that you did not know vertebrates are in the earliest layers of the Cambrian. I'm simply going to link to two articles on the subject, because I do not have the time right now, but you should know that vertebrates (from an evolutionary view) have to evolve from "simp...

Re: Speciation

I usually put it "something like genus and species," so I'll admit that I was careless in the way I worded it here. You have not shown me a Biblical reason why I'm wrong.

I'm waiting.

Re: Evolution and Intelligent Design

adocus,
I'm a vertebrate paleontologist, and I'll stand by: if you need me, just holler!
Then you know that vertebrates are among the first chordates to show up in the Cambrian. They should have evolved later on.

Re: Speciation

adocus, I gave you the scriptures that allow us to see the definition of what min (kind) means. It is very limited. I have seen nothing in the Bible that would allow a definition more like family, oder, class, etc. So, the young-earth definition is just made up. The only reason they have done this i...

Re: Does the forum believe in the rapture??

mandelduke, In the manuscripts Ezekiel 13:20 says I am against those who teach to fly away to save their souls. No, it says "hunt ( tsuwd ) souls to fly." That is why most translations says "hunt lives there as birds." The women were capturing, not leting fly, the souls. This is why God was going to...

Re: Questions on Theistic Evolution

Calum, I don't quite understand - you're saying in places where there were no hominids, animals quickly went extinct, but where hominids existed the rate of extinction was slower? That doesn't exactly support your theory... In fact, it seems to be working in reverse from what your whole point seems ...

Re: Noah: worlds first zoo keeper

jlay, "An eternal decree, so it cannot cross over it." Peter indicates that the flood was local. II Peter 3:5 refers to the creation of the heavens and the exposing of the earth. This is obviously referring to when God gathered the seas and made dry land rise up/appear (creation day 3). In verse 7 h...

Re: Noah: worlds first zoo keeper

jlay, I'm curious then why the Bible records the dimensions of the Ark as being so massive. What's the point? A lot of animals had to fit on board, but this has nothing to do with whether the flood was global or not. The animals required to be saved in a global flood would not fit. The Bible is clea...

Re: Speciation

Calum, False. I believe rapid speciation happens very often. Of course, that's usually in small, isolated populations under significant selection pressure. An example would be a population of Italian Wall Lizards that were left alone on an island off the coast of Croatia, and within just 30 generati...

Re: Does the forum believe in the rapture??

Mandelduke has been sucked in by "Shepherd's Chapel." Does this really have to do with the Rapture? NO! Ezekiel 13:20 "Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD, "Behold, I am against your magic bands by which you hunt lives there as birds, and I will tear them off your arms; and I will let them go, even th...

Re: Questions on Theistic Evolution

KBCid is correct. The author was inspired to write this book not only to remind Israel of their history, but through this history, to teach us about the consequences of sin (1 Chronicles 5:1, 23-26) and about God's faithfulness (1 Chronicles 5:20; 14:8-16). Israel was under Persian control, but the ...
