Star Dust In My Veins

I’ve noticed a growing number of atheists being blown away by their biological connection to the stars.

The stuff of the universe is the stuff of us - just like the Bible says.

Science has told us that the universe came into being out of nothing - just like the Bible says,

Science also tells us that we, humans, were not created out of nothing - just like the Bible says.

“What is seen is made from what is not seen.”
Quite a statement for a Bronze Age Book.

“The Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life.”

The universe came from nothing while life itself came from existing material of nature - just like the Bible says.

Is the book of Genesis a literal description of the beginnings of the universe?

I believe that it's literally true that God brought both the universe and life into existence. I don't believe that we understand what exactly Genesis is saying.

YES.

Makarios said...

Ok so some atheists are exponentially dumber than other atheists . . . We just look straight ahead and keep moving.

Chris Mackey said...

It seems like non-literalists believe reality first and then try to twist the Bible into what they understand is reality.
Sorry I'm not more eloquent.
Like if the Bible says the earth has four corners, they believe that until reality shows that there are not four corners, then it becomes "a figure of speech".

What brings this on?

So where's the firmament?

Makarios said...

Oh, sorry, I'm too used to writing atheists. I meant people. check out the profile of JWS

If Genesis if literal, where's the firmament? Why is the Sun not created until "day" four?

As far as Bronze Age creation myths go, Genesis isn't even one of the good ones.

*crickets*

Yeah, I guess the only part of Genesis people really focus on is: "And God said: Let us make man in our image..."

Christians love the ego trip of thinking we're designed by Gods to be Gods. Ahh, appealing lies, is there nothing you won't have us believe?

Well, some people might believe that but it isn’t Christianity.

Actually there is something that I wouldn’t want you to believe. Time plus luck can make the impossible, possible.

It wasn't impossible.
Ever heard of the "Law of Truly Large Numbers"?

Mak, I know of no reason why the beliefs of Jesus Will Save are any more deluded than yours. If you truly believe that the miraculous events described in the Bible happened, why would it be so outrageous to believe that Jesus was an alien?

Chris, Mak doesn't like people referring to the Law of Truly Large Numbers because it damns his delusions.
