Moses thought the world was at one time perfect. What happened?

Every argument from complexity that I've seen has been summarily shot down by either scientists or science-literate types. Do you know of one that has survived?

Man has produced a lot of sublime works.

How does this avoid being the Gambler's Fallacy? Counting the few random hits and conveniently forgetting the much more numerous misses? I'd wager that just about any city you name will be a pile of rubble one day, given enough time.

@FBM,
Depends on whose point of view.
I'll leave it at that

Okee-dokee. I reckon sans evidence, points of view are all we have.

@FBM,
One little bit of evidence for you.
You still misunderstand the meaning of evidence.

@FBM,
Simple example.
You find a scratch on your car.
It's evidence.
But, evidence of what?

@neologist,
It's evidence that something scratched my car. Could you explain the relevance of that example? You lost me there.

No idea. Could've been an inanimate object, for all I know.

@FBM,
Are you saying that evidence, by itself, is inconclusive?
I rest my case.

@neologist,
What's the hypothesis that you're trying to use it as evidence to support? Without a hypothesis, it's just a scratch on a car.

@neologist,
Sorry, you don't even deserve a mudpie for those juvenile comments.

Your conclusion seems to be that God couldn't be perfect until He created something and proved it and His whole reason for creation was to do that. I'm sorry but that shows a real lack of consistency. SO what would perfection be? Your idea ? or God's idea ?

Moses is generally thought to have written the first five books of the bible This is how he described God's work in Genesis:
Quote:
. . . behold, it was very good. (Genesis 1:31)
A lot of bad stuff happened after that - very bad.

Yet, he continued to maintain God's work was perfect.
Quote:
He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.(Deuteronomy 32:4)
So, did Moses have it all 100% wrong? Or, is there another explanation that takes Moses' point of view into account as he continued his writing?

I've mended my kevlar helmet and I'm ready. So fire away.


Look at this from another perspective.

God is the evil mob boss. Write down somethin' he don't like an you might get wacked. Or he was kissing ass. This sort of thing occurs a lot. Like no one having an issue when god kills every first born male child in Egypt. And Job didn't have any issue when god tortured him to prove a point. Nope god isn't an asshole. He just sorta reads that way but if you get to know him your bias and fear will kick in and you'll see him in a whole new light.
