So, because the language God uses doesn’t fit the language man uses, you don’t think that God did it the way he said he did? That sounds rather myopic.
Yes, I do understand how man thinks rain is formed. Not just the water cycle, but the TD of it as well.
Again, I reiterate what I said before.
If God wrote a comprehensive scientific treatise of how things work, it’d be so complex that our brightest minds would spend entire lifetimes, and accomplish no more than write entire notebooks with speculations, thoughts, questions, and get no closer to actually understanding it.
God’s goal was to get humans to know him, so we could be freed from our sin, and that which is destroying us.
As for evolution…
The ONLY reason I don’t believe evolution is true, is because the bible quite succinctly states that God created it, in 6- Yom. From Genesis 1:3 through 1:31, we have 6 days. Not 6 eras, eons, weeks, months, years. 6 Yom. IT went from erev to boker.
I have no idea what happened, and after decades of trying to figure it out… I’ve come to the point where I’m willing to wait until eternity, to have it all explained in the detail proffered in 1 Corinthians 13:12, and Deuteronomy 29:29.
The bible is quite clear in the idea that God SPOKE creation into existence, and Jesus holds it all together.
How he did it… it’s not detailed. But I’ll tell you what, and I say this to everyone who keeps telling me that evolution is the truth—
Build a time machine, and let me know. We’ll get together, travel back to the key periods, and observe creation/evolution take place.
Until then— we’re both in exactly the same boat…
Whom shall we believe?
Do we believe people who are not eye witnesses
or do we believe the only eyewitness?
Personally, I’m weary of placing my trust in people who just don’t know. And believe me when I say that I’ve spent a lifetime giving them the benefit of the doubt, and they offer nothing which shows me they know enough to rely on their ideas.
