Thanks, let me end with this.
First, as I understand the world and science, Genesis is completely consistent with what we see in the world. The only reason it wouldn’t appear consistent is if someone adopts assumptions that are counter to one or the other. In other words, the problem is the assumptions. I have never heard any reason to doubt it although, granted, I am trusting the words of scientists while asking questions that aren’t being answered sufficiently in my mind.
Second, it is not deceptive to say you did something and then do it with the result that it looks like you did what you said. If I were to park my car in your driveway and tell you I parked my car there, you wouldn’t go out the next morning and start talking about how someone built a car in your driveway. And you wouldn’t call me deceptive when I said it wasn’t built there. The problem, again, is your assumptions, this time, about Scripture. I am not sure what you actually see that is incompatible with what God said. So far as I can tell, the only supposed incompatibility is the method by which something got to the current condition. But to use a simple analogy, if I have $100 in my pocket and told you
Third, who is affirming the miraculous in the study of geology or the completely unrelated fields of plumbing or auto mechanics. BTW, Why do you associate those things together. You are a scientist, aren’t you? Making observations and drawing conclusions about the history of the planet and universe is not the same thing as getting water to a house or making an automobile run. Honestly, that’s the kind of argument that makes me suspicious and causes me to roll my eyes. I just don’t get that level of argumentation.
