Re: Adam’s rib

To begin with, either the suggested dates for human settlements FAR outside of ancient Mesopotamia are wrong or the approximate date for Adam is. Or both are about right. ANY other option?

Re: For Those Who DON'T believe in God:

JustHuman: How about you (discussions.godandscience.org) presenting a platform for these discussions. You instigate the possibility for these kind of argueing and are surprised that it actually works?

Re: Adam’s rib

Clearly, if there were pre-Adamites, they would not have been mere non-human hominids. Again, I believe very strongly that there are two very important revelations of testimony from God - that of Scripture and that of the Creation itself (and it's study that brings knowledge per it's testimony). And...

Re: Be Fruitful and Multiply

Anyway, looks like white people haven't been doing their contribution - maybe God's allotted time for palefaces is about done?

Re: Be Fruitful and Multiply

What if your swimmers can't get the job done? Anyway, I've done my contribution to world population - two is aplenty. But there's a guy at church who is probably about 40 - he and his wife have produced five kids. I don't know of anyone else my age or younger who has more than three - DO YOU GUYS kn...

Re: Adam’s rib

God has always had values as to what He considers right and wrong. And if beings of free will, surely any pre-Adamites had the ability to choose things or actions God has always deemed as being wrong - which is what sin is.

Re: Adam’s rib

Re: Adam’s rib

DB: I think Genesis 3:20 is indicating that Adam and Eve were the first people to be spiritually 'alive'. There are a number of people on this planet who are physically alive but are not spiritually alive. And as the first people who were spiritually alive through relationship with God, everyone el...
