I don’t view these concepts as discrediting anything. Rather quite the opposite, I view it as respecting scripture by acknowledging what it says.
That’s why I quoted scripture numerous times.
For example, one example you quoted me as noting, is that Adam was created on Day 6 in Genesis 1 after plants and animals were created on prior days, and then in Genesis 2 Adam was created before plants and animals.
Some people might feel offended by this information. But to be fair, this is what the scriptures actually tell us. There’s no discrediting going on, it’s just an observation.
My other comment that the leviathan had multiple heads and breathed fire. I gave passages straight from scripture that state just this. It’s just what the scriptures say. These aren’t dinosaurs being described in Job. It’s a fire breathing hydra just like the Bible says. (Psalm 74:14, Job 41:19)
The solid dome of the firmament. Look, many cultures in prehistory held this same view. So when we read scripture and we see Job (37:18) describing the raqia as molten metal, or we see it described like crystal (Eze 1:22), or like saphire (Exodus 24:10), glass (Rev 4:6) or like pavement (Also Exodus 24:10) or like a tent or canopy etc (Isaiah 40:22). These are all words used to describe the raqia in scripture. And it has windows in it that open and close to let the flood waters through. (Gen 7:11, Gen 8:2) And stars were placed in it. The stars were not placed above it, nor below it, but in it (Gen 1:14). That’s just what scripture says. Though God is still observed walking above it, none the less (Eze 1:26). The windows that open and close to let water through, that’s just what Genesis says. (Gen 7:11, Gen 8:2).
It’s not a matter of discrediting anything. This is just what scripture says.
And once we gain this understanding of the old testament cosmology, the whole young earth vs old earth, 7 days vs billions of years “debate” simply evaporates because we recognize that scripture isn’t presenting an old earth or a young earth position, rather it’s an ancient near-east cosmology that is completely independent of science.
