And so, again, you are wrong here. You could make the same argument that nowhere in the Bible does it talk about God using Evaporation to make things rain. But clearly he does. Though I’m okay if you want to say he uses evaporation sometimes, and other ways other times.
You could argue that nowhere in the Bible does it talk about God using fusion to make the Sun’s light. But clearly He does. But I’m okay if you want to say he uses nuclear fusion sometimes, and other ways other times.
For Evolution we have this statement in Genesis:
Gen 1:24 & 25
"And God said,
Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind,
and creeping thing,
and beast of the earth
after his kind: and it was so.
God made the beast of the earth after his kind,
and cattle after their kind,
and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind:
and God saw that it was good.
This is clearly a doublet - - where the narrator is intentionally putting how something was made
as equivalent to God making it.
The “Earth” brings forth the creatures. It doesn’t say God “poofed” them into existence.
What is a “kind”? A “kind” is clearly not a category. A “kind” is any unique population, that is
able to reproduce the next generation of the population.
And since we know that populations do change genetically over time, it is quite clealry
true that populations change over time, making the “kind” in question a fluid and dynamic
thing. Whether it be micro- or macro- evolution, it is the next generation that validates the
population as a kind. And there is Zero evidence anywhere in the bible that generations do
not change over time. It is an obvious truth of biology. It is an obvious truth of chemistry.
If it were not true, then even your belief that all the present terrestrial species of the world
come from survivors of Noah’s Ark could not be true. There is some million or millions of these
species, all different kinds, and science shows that different populations share common
@Prode, I like your points about Adam and Eve knowing what death was. It has interesting
ramifications. But it really doesn’t respond to the Bible’s point that Adam & Eve didn’t know
Good and Evil.
