Unless those generations are only 6 years long, these verses indicate that humanity has been around much longer than 6,000 years. In most instances, a biblical generation is ~40 years long,14 meaning that human beings have been around for at least 40,000 years.
Infinite + First Cause = traditional descriptions of God.
Causation appears to be infinite.
Free will appears to have an infinite regression in reasoning too. . .
Religion is based on faith, and faith only. That's because nobody can produce any evidence of their god(s)
Fine-tuned Universe: The values of the fundamental physical constants are in a narrow range necessary to support carbon-based life. Is this because there exist other universes with different constants, or are our universe’s constants the result of chance, or some other factor or process?
bj, There is no god. Gods are only in the imagination of people who wish to believe in such a thing. Religion is based on faith, and faith only. That's because nobody can produce any evidence of their god(s). http://atheism.wikia.com/wiki/How_many_gods%3F
Will have reasons/causes, they don't come out of the blue. On this regard, the expression Free will is a contradiction in terms. As for the randomness argument that doesn't grant you any more free willing since random implies you were not the cause of an X given action you just tossed a coin. More profoundly microbiologists recently have been looking at Humans as "superorganisms" on which 99% of the DNA you can find in yourself is from bacteria.You come to be aware of your NEEDS and call them choices but that is just semantics at work...
the mind is just an epiphenomenon of the workings of the brain and body plus environment with no free will!
