Is There Any Reason to Believe the Biblical Story of Creation?

@neologist,
You're still peddling bullshit. The "singular fate" about which you are prevaricating, or attempting to, is the fall of Babylon. Tediously, i will point out again that Babylon did not "fall," it faded away. How is that a singular fate? What about the cities of the plain? What about Jericho?

What is really at the heart of this line of bullshit is an attempt on your part to claim that the allegedly valid prophecies of the old testament constitute evidence for your god and the fairy stories of the bible. Not a single aspect of what the prophecies alleged would occur actually occurred. Your latest foray into snide rejoinders is just the sour grapes of having your bullsh*t exposed.

Rather than a being more intelligent than any of us ?

The trees, the grass, and the water were created by means of evolution by natural selection. This process causes successful self-replicating systems to spread and unsuccessful ones to die out. However the universe had turned out, any beings who were created under that set of conditions would remark on how it seemed designed for them. If you want to postulate a magical being, you'd better come up with some evidence more than "what else could it be?"

To be more accurate, I avoided prophecies having their fulfilment before the completion of the canon because they are so often met with the objection that they were written after the fact.

The idea that one of the most important cities of the ancient world would end up in ruins, I thought would be a good place to start.

Apparently not. I can't show you a fossil of an apostle.
I can't photograph or record holy spirit.

The bible is not a scientific treatise. So, perhaps there is something else at work here, including the nanopossibility that I could be wrong.

To have anyone accept a certain theory of the creation of the universe, you need some evidence and you have none.

@Brandon9000,
I think it was written to answer your question. What sense does it make to tell me that you have another story that you trust that tells you the truth about Creation (how do you know ?) before you read this one.


People like you puzzle me. You always argue Sola Scriptura but then say you don't accept Sola Scriptura. You are too confused to have a discussion with.

Read it and come to your own conclusion.

@farmerman,
The Bible never says that. In fact it says the opposite. Nobody had their own copy of Genesis or interpreted it outside Judaism for at least almost 1000 years.

Are you really picturing somebody going into a bookstore and buying Genesis as if there were no Faith already there ? Unbelievable

@Brandon9000,
Why, Brandon. They are often converts and they used to be like you, just like you, so they know what you are going to say before you say it.

Are you really not old enough to come to your own conclusions. Will you ask this question for another 10 years ?

@Brandon9000,
Well hundreds of millions have and you can't be smarter than ALL of them.So do the scientific thing ; Put down the computer and read it and then see what is part of a Creed (since the rest is by definition personal opinion) and see what you get.
