Re: The world is not limited to your ignorance
1. That the universe is finite.

It's not.


2. That the universe is based on laws.

It's not.


3. That light was the first entity.

It wasn't and in fact has never been.


4. That an array of actions anticipated life.

Also didn't happen.


5. That the first grouping of life forms [species] is recorded in Genesis.

Not only is species not a part of Genesis, the "kinds" mentioned there are also not valid.


6. That evolution is first recorded in Genesis.

No, it wasn't.


7. That the oldest names of humans are recorded in Genesis.

Also wrong. There are writings which pre-date Genesis. The Epic of Gilgamesh for example.


8. That the DAY & WEEK were introduced in Genesis.

Also wrong. The Babylonians had days and weeks recorded before Genesis was written.


9. That all laws of the judiciary, ethicality, human rights, animal rights, women's rights, separation of religion and state - are contained in the Hebrew bible - exclusively.

Extremely wrong. Wrong in the sense that what's in the Bible even REMOTELY addresses these rights. Wrong in the sense that there is separation. And EXTREMELY wrong in the sense that any of this is exclusive to the Bible.


10. The first alphabetical book is the Hebrew bible.

Also no, Sumerians had writing before the Bible was written.


11. The oldest active calendar and the most accurate is the Hebrew calendar.

I think the Chinese would dispute that.


12. That the history of a host of nations which do not exist anymore, their locations, beliefs, customs are recorded exclusively in the Hebrew bible. [e.g. the Philistines; Abraham; Moabites, Medianites, etc]

While THOUSANDS more are not recorded. Meanwhile the Incas had recordings of cultures not mentioned in the Bible.


13. That no ancient writings have more archeological proof than the Hebrew bible.

There is no archaeological proof for any magical event recorded in the Bible.

There is only archaeological evidence that the locations in which the authors decided to set their story were existing places.

This is also true of Troy. There's PLENTY of archaeological proof for Troy and therefore the Trojan War.

By your standard, that means there's proof for the entire Greek pantheon which disproves the Jew's claim to one true god.

Basically, you've presented a long list of errors based on your assumption that if an author writes "this is the first thing that happened" then whatever paper he wrote that on is the oldest recording ever.

Not even close to being true.

Vegetation; water borne; air borne fowl; land based animals; speech endowed humans. 'Kinds' are validated and vindicated as the first record of life form groupings. You loose.

No, it wasn't.


Life form groupings emerged via following their kind, as per the host seed output - this is vindicated in our midst without any impact of the time factor. Evolution fails without the host.

7. That the oldest names of humans are recorded in Genesis.

8. That the DAY & WEEK were introduced in Genesis.

Also wrong. The Babylonians had days and weeks recorded before Genesis was written.


No sir: pls prove your statement. The babs and Egyptians never had calendars - they used hour glasses and moons. The Babs divided the year into months, but they could not estimate seasons, which called for solar, lunar and earth movements. Today's Gregorian comes from the Hebrew calendar, which introduced both the day and the week, and the means of calculating seasons and annual aniversaries.

Read again. Although there were basic laws [NOT TO MURDER; STEAL; etc] prior to the Hebrew, the laws we follow in today's institutions are seen only in the Hebrew bible's 613 laws. No other ancient documents list animal rights, for example, or that it is forbidden to judge by hearing one arty's side only.

There are no Sumerian alphabetical BOOKS, namely a multi-page continueing narrative. Name one?

While the Chinese and Indian are older, there is no calendar, chinese or Indian 5700 years old and active today. Period.

No sir. Names and dates are also listed, which align with the Hebrew scriptures. A few examples.

quote:
Incas are not old: History[edit] Killke cultureThe Killke occupied the region from 900 to 1200, prior to the arrival of the Incas in the 13th century. Carbon-14 dating of Sacsayhuaman, the walled complex outside Cuzco, has demonstrated that the Killke culture constructed the fortress about 1100. The Inca later expanded and occupied the complex in the 13th century. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cusco

Re Proof of Israel's history:

quote:

The Merneptah Stele, dated to about 1206 B.C.E. and now housed at the Cairo Museum, offers the earliest historical evidence of a people called Israel. It's the earliest reference we have to the Israelites. The victory stele of Pharaoh Merneptah, the son of Ramesses II, mentions a list of peoples and city-states in Canaan, and among them are the Israelites. And it's interesting that the other entities, the other ethnic groups, are described as nascent states, but the Israelites are described as "a people." They have not yet reached a level of state organization.

However, in 1993 an inscription was found at Tel Dan. It mentions a dynasty of David. And on the Mesha stone found in the last century in Moab there is also a probable reference to David. So there is textual evidence outside the Bible for these kings of the United Monarchy, at least David.

Archeologists Discover Jerusalem's Oldest. Hebrew University excavations recently unearthed a clay fragment dating back to the 14th century BCE, said to be the oldest written document ever found in Jerusalem.

The tiny fragment is only 2 cm. by 2.8 cm. in surface area and 1 cm. thick and appears to have once been part of a larger tablet. Researchers say the ancient fragment testifies to Jerusalem’s importance as a major city late in the Bronze Age, long before it was conquered by King David.


quote:

Basically, you've presented a long list of errors based on your assumption that if an author writes "this is the first thing that happened" then whatever paper he wrote that on is the oldest recording ever.

Not even close to being true.


I have only relied on recent archeological proof with back up relics. I have not presented any scriptures as proof.

Hehe rofl lmao id love to here a few of these rights can you provide some quotes from the bible of these rights.

I wonder how many women would agree to those rights

found some of those rights myself where these the ones you where talking about?

Genesis 3:16
Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

Isaiah 3:12
As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them.

1 Corinthians 11:3
But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

1 Corinthians 14:34-36
Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

Ephesians 5:22-24
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

Colossians 3:18
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.

1 Timothy 2:11-15
Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing.

1 Peter 3:1
Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands.

None of those are against women's rights, which comes from the hebrew bible. A punishment made to both man and woman does not apply here. I can list all the laws which verify the case, if it does not conflict with the thread topic.

1 Corinthians 11:3
But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

At least get your act together you know what you are rejecting. Those are not the Hebrew bible but the NT, which do not contain any laws.

Hi IamJoseph,

You should keep your focus on the science in the science threads, not on the Bible. The Bible can serve as a source of ideas and inspiration, and as a guide to where to find evidence, but cannot itself be used as evidence.

I'm not moderating this thread at the moment, but as of now I am recusing myself for two days, after which I will begin moderating this thread, and if you're still posting Biblical arguments in this thread then I will suspend you for 30 days.

You've been posting Biblical arguments in a number of science threads recently, despite requests to stop. If this continues you will be suspended, and because of your persistence it will be for long periods. I appreciate the courtesy and cordiality you bring to discussions, but that is not a license for ignoring the Forum Guidelines.

The creationist position is not just that the Bible is true, but that the Bible is true and that the evidence from the real world says its true. In the science threads you have to focus on the evidence that says the Bible is true, not the Bible.

There are a number of religious threads here at EvC Forum where you may make your Bible-based arguments.

I fully agree with that. Is not a finite universe evidenced in a substantial sector of science today? With species, I listed many valid reasons why Genesis is the first recording of life form groupings [a fact, not an opinion], in a thread of very evidenced factors which point to the host seed, and how it satisfies the evolutionary term of species. I also said the Hebrew bible is the first alphabetical book. These are easily refutable without referring to any theology - but none have done that.

How does it make a difference who said it, more so than what is said? This applies to all things I've said, but no one is countering what is said, but rather who said it. If a science thread does not confront the only counter to it, then what merit in just talking with only those who have no counter? Can you tell me why a finite universe is so widespreadly rejected in this thread [I count those who remain silent as liable here] - is there not substantial evidence of the universe being finite, via science theories and via other imprints of evidence? The point is, even if one does not subscribe to a finite universe, it is not based on any valid criteria - so there is no validity in rejecting an equally, if not more so, valid premise. A science response must be the first to vouch what is a scientyifically valid premise - no matter who says it.

I put it to you that the book of Genesis is also a historical item, evidenced in the dead sea scrolls. Its content represents the only counter today against Evalution - it introduced this premise without the same name only. None have showed which part of Genesis' mode of re-pro is not scientifically viable - can you?

Re: Moderator Notice
ADMIN.

Did you check my reasoning why the flood story can only be seen as a regional flood? All of the factors I mentioned are based only on scientific and historical grounds, and by quoting texts in the story which verify my reasonings. What for example, does YOUR OWN HOUSEHOLD means, if not only Noah's possessions? Correct me where you can point to a specific item what is said.

Re: The world is not limited to your ignorance
Hello IamJoseph,

When I read your post my bullshit detector went off so hard I fell of the couch.

Reality and the educated know where the first recording of following comes from:

1. That the universe is finite.

2. That the universe is based on laws.

3. That light was the first entity.

4. That an array of actions anticipated life.

5. That the first grouping of life forms [species] is recorded in Genesis.

6. That evolution is first recorded in Genesis.

7. That the oldest names of humans are recorded in Genesis.

8. That the DAY & WEEK were introduced in Genesis.

9. That all laws of the judiciary, ethicality, human rights, animal rights, women's rights, separation of religion and state - are contained in the Hebrew bible - exclusively.

10. The first alphabetical book is the Hebrew bible.

11. The oldest active calendar and the most accurate is the Hebrew calendar.

12. That the history of a host of nations which do not exist anymore, their locations, beliefs, customs are recorded exclusively in the Hebrew bible. [e.g. the Philistines; Abraham; Moabites, Medianites, etc]

13. That no ancient writings have more archeological proof than the Hebrew bible.

Can you provide your sources for each one of these claims please.

Hi IamJoseph,

This is a response both to this message and to your previous one, Message 337.

I am not taking any position on the issues in this debate. You were discussing women's rights in Message 335, and most of your post was quoting the Bible verses that Frako provided. This is both off-topic and inappropriate for a thread in one of the science forums. You started the off-topic diversion with this off-topic claim in your Message 331:

  1. That all laws of the judiciary, ethicality, human rights, animal rights, women's rights, separation of religion and state - are contained in the Hebrew bible - exclusively.

Please stay on-topic and do not make Biblical claims in science threads. Focus on the evidence.

Re: You were discussing women's rights in Message 335.

Ture. However, this was in context of science laws, where I mentioned other laws also come from this source, as a form of credibility. But a post laughed his head off, then went on to quote incorrect references and allocations - I responded with a correction only. I can, but don't intend to show him proof he was wrong and I correct.

This is a science thread which is discussing the veracity of a report in a theological work. The fact is I did show how the topic of the flood is wrongly understood as a global one by giving scientific and historical reasoning and quoting the storie's actual text. I regard this thread's question of it well answered. Instead of countering me on the topic, numerous issues concerning theology was submitted as the response; obviously there was no scientific counter at hand to my reasonings. How is it my fault if others resort to theology, laughing their heads off and being positively wrong?

Re: The world is not limited to your ignorance
Show something expanding which is not finite.

The Universe.

Your succinct response defies the law of gravity.

Are you suggesting that the law of gravity is an unbreakable rule of the Universe which can never be avoided under any circumstances?

Denial is not a scientific response. The age of the universe is measured by its light.

The fact that we can see light does not mean that light is an "entity". You measure EVERYTHING by light. You measure time by light when you look at a clock. You measure height by light when you look at a ruler. You measure heat by light when you look at a thermometer.

We measure the Universe by light because we are looking at it, not because the Universe is "made of light".

Was water not separated from land prior to life?

Water is not separated from land at all. Show me where on Earth water does not touch land.

Vegetation; water borne; air borne fowl; land based animals; speech endowed humans. 'Kinds' are validated and vindicated as the first record of life form groupings. You loose.

First, your claim is that kinds = species. That's false. Second, the Bible is not the first place didn't "kinds" of animals are recorded. Cave paintings clearly show different animals and predate the Bible by 2-3X the entire age of the Earth (going by your Bible count).

Life form groupings emerged via following their kind, as per the host seed output - this is vindicated in our midst without any impact of the time factor. Evolution fails without the host.

Saying that Creationism is evolution is not evolution. It's just you being pathetic.

Your history is worse than your science. The name Adam is 5771 years. Gilgamesh is post Abraham.

The earliest fragment of Genesis is from ~100 AD.
Epic of Gilgamesh is ~ 700 BC.

Nice try though.

The babs and Egyptians never had calendars - they used hour glasses and moons.

You are claiming that Babylonians never had calendars, and your reasoning is that they used the moon.

What do you think a calendar is? Why do you think we call them "Months" (MOONths).

Look, I get it, you are REQUIRED to *** for Jesus otherwise you have to sacrifice a baby or something. Just pick lies that do make you look so f(@king ***.

Today's Gregorian comes from the Hebrew calendar,

SUNday, MOONday, ODENSday, THORSday, FRYSDAY, SATURNSDAY -- does ANY of that sound REMOTELY JEWISH to you?

How about the clearly LATIN month names? Or the months named after JULIUS and AUGUSTUS Caesar?

Your claims are LAUGHABLE.

Read again. Although there were basic laws [NOT TO MURDER; STEAL; etc] prior to the Hebrew, the laws we follow in today's institutions are seen only in the Hebrew bible's 613 laws. No other ancient documents list animal rights, for example, or that it is forbidden to judge by hearing one arty's side only.

Fail. Our legal system is based on Roman law. We do not have laws prohibiting the consumption of shell fish. We do not have laws prohibiting the wearing of clothing without tassels. CLEARLY our legal system is not based on the Jews.

There are no Sumerian alphabetical BOOKS, namely a multi-page continueing narrative. Name one?

Oh, so you want "pages"? Show me an ancient copy of Genesis which is in a book? You can't. Even the MODERN Torah is not "pages". It's ONE PAGE rolled up.

Wow, you just don't know a thing about any of this do you?

While the Chinese and Indian are older, there is no calendar, chinese or Indian 5700 years old and active today. Period.

The fact that you admit that the Chinese are old than the Jews means that your entire argument FAILS at the start. If God made the JEWS ONLY, where the F did the Chinese come from?

I have only relied on recent archeological proof with back up relics. I have not presented any scriptures as proof.

Again, you are saying that proof that a city existed is evidence that a story about that city is true. That's not a valid claim.

I can prove archaeologically that London exists. Does that make Harry Potter real?

Re: The world is not limited to your ignorance
Hello IamJoseph,
When I read your post my bullshit detector went off so hard I fell of the couch.

Reality and the educated know where the first recording of following comes from:
1. That the universe is finite.

2. That the universe is based on laws.

3. That light was the first entity.

4. That an array of actions anticipated life.

5. That the first grouping of life forms [species] is recorded in Genesis.

6. That evolution is first recorded in Genesis.

7. That the oldest names of humans are recorded in Genesis.

8. That the DAY & WEEK were introduced in Genesis.

9. That all laws of the judiciary, ethicality, human rights, animal rights, women's rights, separation of religion and state - are contained in the Hebrew bible - exclusively.

10. The first alphabetical book is the Hebrew bible.

11. The oldest active calendar and the most accurate is the Hebrew calendar.

12. That the history of a host of nations which do not exist anymore, their locations, beliefs, customs are recorded exclusively in the Hebrew bible. [e.g. the Philistines; Abraham; Moabites, Medianites, etc]

13. That no ancient writings have more archeological proof than the Hebrew bible.

Can you provide your sources for each one of these claims please.

Absolutely. If its not off topic.

seriously?

I will rephrase.

WILL you provide your sources for each one of the claims.

I was not enquiring as to your ability to provide the sources, I wanted you to actually supply them.
