I’m not sure you read what I put down, or I conveyed it correctly. I think some are understanding my point, but I don’t think you are. More than 10,000 elapsed, fossils were created over 4 million years…time relativity. I can’t really expand on that any more.
Who said God wasn’t entertained watching the creatures He created living life? We enjoy watching cats on youtube being silly. Again, I am not arguing the earth wasn’t 4 million years old.
I think you and gbrooks are barking up the wrong tree. Debating things we both agree on. Stuff wasn’t magically placed there, stuff wasn’t props, stuff actually occurred…time relativity, you are not still on your couch, you are moving 23.000 mph…
I am not sure I follow where you are going with this either. Though it would not change who God is, and if it did, it couldn’t happen. But I live my life to give God the glory whether or not God created this world and everything in it and its history just so I can live my life as I do now or not. The history of how things may or may not have occurred doesn’t change my purpose in life. I do like to debate on it and learn, but my intent was not to upset.
That is one of the reasons, but not the only reason. I read that post that you posted about the non-sabbath creation. And I never heard of it like that, it makes quite a bit of sense. I have said I have an open mind, and am constantly re-evaluating my thoughts, and the sabbath on day 7 is one thing I am currently in a journey over. But there are other things that make my theory very simple in my mind. Some scientist say the OEC are using false data and radioactive dating is proven to have errors ect. So there are some things YEC say that still leans me towards my theory, but like I said, my mind is open.
There are others that seem to debate those Bible honoring interpretations, which causes me to me more skeptic of them as well, and like I said, for now, my theory seems more rational to me. Its just one simple factor, just a time increase.
I am taking it literal, there was no death or disasters or disease that occurred to man. There is nothing saying the animals didn’t have that. It also doesn’t speak of animals in heaven, having no thirst or being glorified. I think man fell into the broken world, which already existed. So I don’t think warp speed history introduces a theological problem there. But I enjoy that you understand my the point of my ‘warp speed’ theory. Death is only a problem for humans, as we have such a short finite time to acknowledge, know and accept God while we are alive to ensure our time with Him in eternity. Animals can’t know God like us, they weren’t created in His image. I am not saying we should torture them, we should be good stewards as commanded, but their death and disease isn’t a problem for us or God. He created to them to be what they are, and they had a bunch of bad stuff that happens to them, and tha tstuff didn’t happen to us…until the fall.
I do follow you there what you are saying here.
It just seems that all scripture is God breathed, why would He deceive us if it wasn’t in 6 days? I do understand that that Bible is not every word for word literal, as in psalms God “covers us with His wings” isn’t a literal winged God covering us, rather the poetic symbol of a eagle hiding/protecting its young from danger. So I know not all of it is literal. Or in numbers when it says 40 thousand men, it could have been 43,242 people, but it rounds numbers and they are not crucial to the telling of a story. And again, it is not really that important as to the how, Genesis is more of a why book, and a what happened book.
However, it isn’t a poetic book, so why would they be inspired to write a day, why not “In the beginng God created this. Then He created that”? Then no one would think of YEC (other than dark ages before they had science to show them and they used genealogy to date the earth). So why does it ‘go out of its way’ to state 6 days? That is why it is so compelling to me.
