Re: Mythology...
All hypotheses and theories have their problematic improbabilities.

You are equivocating hypothesis and theory.

Please give us the definition you are using for those words.

Re: Mythology...
There are no scientific hypotheses or theories based upon anything biblical.

Why didn't you answer the second part of my post?

Bump for Buz
Please provide the definitions you are using for hypothesis and theory.

In order to understand what you are trying to say I need to know what definition of the word you are using.

I claimed you are equivocating and you denied it. As you seem to be using definitions other than the definitions used scientifically, it seems, that yes, you are equivocating.

Re: you're going to have to "Stuudy Genesis" even more than that.
I also suggested that the language may now be dead.

You can suggest all you. Evidence is what counts, not your wild musings.

Time for the standard response.
Your beliefs do not effect reality and evidently reality does not effect your beliefs.

Thank you for pointing that out. This is a brain glitch I have that I always use effect instead of affect. I appreciate the correction.

Re: Time is relative
I can find this quote nowhere on the net - who said it?

I just spent an hour trying to track it down. There might be a translation of a translation issue here, but I did go through everything I have and what I could find online about commentaries dealing with creation. I could find nothing close to this. That being said there are lots and lots of Jewish commentaries about everything(if you ever spend time reading Jewish commentaries you will find it hard to believe they are all the same religion).

It will be interesting to get the original source so we can actually compare that to the translation we were given. Then again maybe eliyahu considers himself a Jewish commentator.

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

Re: Creation of light
Everytime I look out at the night sky, early morning like 2am or night like 5pm I see the moon, as long as it is not cloudy. I will do my best to verify your claim.

Are you that truly ignorant? Do you have no idea about the cycles of the moon? Do you truly think the Sun is out in the day and the moon is out only at night? As if they were opposites? The cluelessness is astounding.

Do you also think that there are no stars out during the day?
