Thanks for that Mike. Other than the scientific evidence you have been discussing, let me reflect on the character of the deity in question. The entire tone of the Bible reflects Elohim’s character that abhors a lie.
On the other hand, Allah in the Qur’an says (From my friend and former college roommate, Jay Smith, a Qur’anic scholar of some note. )
Other gods lie too. Most of the ancient gods lied, stole, murdered, committed perversions with humans (male and female) and animals. Not somebody I’d prefer to worship.
Most YEC would not make that detailed an analysis of the character of God. After all, if you are unable to see Genesis as an ancient book and not a science text, the Character of God is not to be questioned.
I this post looks odd, I am trying to quote from a document in my possession.
