1. Formative/Cosmologic Era-Hadean Era/ = First Day
2. Hadean Era-Archaean Era/ = Second Day

3. Archaean Era-Proterozoic Era/ = Third Day

4. Proterozoic Era-Paleozoic Era/ = Fourth Day

5. Paleozoic Era-Mesozoic Era/ = Fifth Day

6. Mesozoic Era-Cenozoic Era/ = Six Day

7. Cenozoic Era-Common Era/ = Seventh Day

Let me get this straight....

This:

quote:
This era begins with the formation of the Solar System and the Earth from planetesimals in the solar nebula. Mineral evolution begins at this time (although presumably it has already occurred many times in other, early, solar systems.

Corresponds with this:

quote:
I1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.


That's Day 1.

Then Day 2:

quote:
The name says it all; a hellish period lasting some 760 million years, when the Earth was subject to frequent bombardment by comets, asteroids, and other planetary debris. This era begins when a Mars-sized body struck the original Earth, pulverizing both, and reforming into the current Earth-moon binary. Gradually the molten Earth cools, outgassing of first atmosphere and oceans, bombardment by left-over planetesimal and debris. The Hadean eon was characterized by extensive volcanism and formation of the first crust. Following a second period of cosmic bombardment, by the end of the Hadean, the Earth had an atmosphere (unbreathable to most organisms today), and oceans filled with water.

goes with:

quote:
6 And God said, “Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water.” 7 So God made the vault and separated the water under the vault from the water above it. And it was so. 8 God called the vault “sky.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day.

Day 3:

quote:
Lasting more than twice as long as the Phanerozoic eon, the Archean was a time when diverse microbial life flourished in the primordial oceans, and the continental shields developed from volcanic activity. The reducing (anaerobic) atmosphere enabled Archaea (anaerobic microbes) to develop, and plate tectonics followed a regime of continental drift different to that of the Proterozoic and later. During this era, one type of organism, the Cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) produced oxygen as a metabolic by-product; the eventual build-up of this highly reactive gas was to eventually prove fatal to many life-forms, and converted the atmosphere from.

to:

quote:
9 And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. 10 God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good.
11 Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day.

Day 4:

quote:
The Proterozoic, which lasted even longer than the Archean Era, saw the atmosphere changes from reducing to oxygenated, driving the original anaerobic inhabitants of the Earth into a few restricted anoxic refuges and enabling the rise of aerobic life (both prokaryote and the more complex eukaryotic cell, which requires the high octane boost that oxygen enables.) Stromatolites (colonial cyanobacteria), which had appeared during the Archean, were common. The modern regime of continental drift began, and saw the formation of supercontinent of Rodinia, and several extensive ice ages. Late in the Proterozoic a runaway icehouse effect meant that the preceding warm conditions were replaced by a "Snowball Earth" with ice several kilometers deep covering the globe. Warming conditions saw the short-lived Ediacarian biota and finally the appearance of first metazoa.

to:

quote:
14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so. 16 God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day.

Day 5:

quote:
Early in the 300 million year history of the Paleozoic, atmospheric oxygen reached its present levels, generating the ozone shield that screens out ultraviolet radiation and allows complex life to live in the shallows and finally on land. This era witnessed the age of invertebrates, of fish, of tetrapods, and (during the Permian) reptiles. From the Silurian on, life emerged from the sea to colonize the land, and in the later Paleozoic pteridophyte and later gymnospermous plants flourished. The generally mild to tropical conditions with their warm shallow seas were interspersed with Ordovician and Permo-Carboniferous ice ages. Towards the end of the Paleozoic the continents clustered into the supercontinent of Pangea, and increasingly aridity meant the end of the great Carboniferous swamps and their unique flora and fauna. The Paleozoic was brought to an end by the end Permian mass-extinction, perhaps the most severe extinction the planet has seen.

to

quote:
20 And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.” 21 So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.” 23 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fifth day.

Day 6:

quote:
Lasting little more than half the duration of the Paleozoic, this was a spectacular time. The generalized archosaurian reptiles of the Triassic gave way to the dinosaurs, a terrestrial megafauna the like of which the Earth has not seen before or since. While dinosaurs dominated the land, diverse sea-reptiles ruled the oceans, and invertebrates, especially ammonites, were extremely diverse. Pterosaurs and later birds took to the sky. Mammals however remained small and insignificant. Climatic conditions remained warm and tropical worldwide. The supercontinent of Pangea broke up into Laurasia and Gondwana, with different dinosaurian faunas evolving on each. During this era modern forms of corals, insects, new fishes and finally flowering plants evolved. At the end of the Cretaceous period the dinosaurs and many other animals abruptly died out, quite likely the result of an asteroid impact and associated extensive volcanism (acid rain)

to

quote:
24 And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so. 25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

27 So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.

31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.


Day 7:

quote:
With the extinction of the dinosaurs and the end of the Mesozoic, the mammals swiftly inherit the Earth. Archaic mammals co-existed with birds and modern reptiles and invertebrates. The current continents emerged, and the initial tropical conditions were replaced by a colder drier climate, possibly caused by the Himalayan uplift. The appearance of grass meant the rise of grazing mammals, and the cooler drier world allowed modern mammalian groups to evolve, along with other lineages now extinct and a few archaic hold-overs. Among the newcomers were the anthropoid apes that culminated in the australopithecine hominids of Africa. Decreasing temperatures and a polar landmass of Antarctica resulted in a new Ice Age. Most recently, in the blink of an eye geologically speaking, this era saw the rise of Man (Homo erectus, Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon) and use of stone tools and fire, the extinction of Megafauna, and civilization and human activities that have transformed the globe, but at a cost of great environmental destruction.

to

quote:
2 Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.
2 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.

Is that how you have everything lining up? because I can already see some problems and we haven't even gotten into it yet.

But I want to make sure I'm arguing against what you're actually proposing so let me know if I've gotten anything mixed up.

No, you get the idea but

Why are they lined up differently before?

they are lined up like this:

That didn't really help at all. The colorful charts don't really provide much explanation for what's going on in the era so we can't really compare to what's going on in the day in the Bible.

Anyways, here's a couple that I think have problems.

Day 3

quote:
9 And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. 10 God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good.
11 Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day.

Day three has seed and fruit bearing plants and trees emerging.

You have:

quote:
3. Neo-archean evening of the Archaean Era-

… and the Paleo-proterozoic morning of the Proterozoic Era/ = Third Day


There were no seed nor fruit bearing plants during that time. According to wiki:

quote:
The Proterozoic is a geological eon representing the time just before the proliferation of complex life on Earth.

...

The first advanced single-celled, eukaryotes and multi-cellular life, Francevillian Group Fossils, roughly coincides with the start of the accumulation of free oxygen. This may have been due to an increase in the oxidized nitrates that eukaryotes use, as opposed to cyanobacteria. It was also during the Proterozoic that the first symbiotic relationships between mitochondria (for nearly all eukaryotes) and chloroplasts (for plants and some protists only) and their hosts evolved.


Seed bearing plants didn't come about until just before the Early Cretaceous, which you have included in the Fifth Day. The Bible has sea and bird life emerging on the fifth day, not plants.

So there's a discrepancy.

Also, Day 7.

You have this:

quote:
7. Quaternary evening of the Cenozoic Era-

… and the Recent Epoch morning of the Common Era/ = Seventh Day


Corresponding with this:

quote:
2 Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.
2 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.

Those don't line up at all.

Seed bearing plants didn't come about until just before the Early Cretaceous, which you have included in the Fifth Day. The Bible has sea and bird life emerging on the fifth day, not plants.

Remember that this Bible interpretation condones the theory of evolution which tells us that in one series of very early Spontaneous Generations of first life, (bacteria, explicitly), the seeds to the entire Plant Kingdom were created.

With the cravat in mind, you can understand that the gradually appearance from of the more complex life forms would be historically reported throughout all the subsequent eras after the Meso/Eo-archean morning of the third "day."

That's an utterly ridiculous and desperate stretch. The Bible says "The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds."

That is not talking about bacteria, which didn't come from the land, are not "vegetation", and do not bear fruit.

And this "interpretation" of your's exposes your true motive: to twist the Bible into saying anything it has to in order to maintain consistency with modern science. That's not only dishonest but its terrible theology. You're basically just lying to yourself so you can maintain your delusion of an accurate Bible. Grow up.

Your theory has been falsified.

The word "grass," in this case, was a fair guess in 1600AD, but better, in light of this day, "the first sprouts of the Earth" would have been more truly accurate for the word "deshe."

No, that's not even close. There's no way to interpret the plants emerging on day three as being bacteria. Face it: Genesis doesn't match up with science.

And look at your own source:

Is says at the bottom that in Gen 1: 11-12 it means "the more mature herbage, when already in seed". Your own source contadicts you.

And what about Day 7? You 've got a lot of stuff going on when the Bible just says that God rested.

One other thing: are you familiar with the Sharpshooter Falacy?

quote:
The Texas sharpshooter fallacy is an informal fallacy in which pieces of information that have no relationship to one another are called out for their similarities, and that similarity is used for claiming the existence of a pattern.

You're just using hind-sight to twist the words in the Bible to mean whatever you have to make them mean to match up with science. There's no reason for those words to mean that other than to try to make the Bible out to have some accuracy. Its not an honest approach and its making you look silly.

Sprouts come from seeds. Seeds simply did not exist during the Proterozoic Era. Your interpretation is wrong.

Re: Nonsense
The Bible is telling a direct correspondence between what actually happened, albeit necessarily couched somewhat in terms that the ancient readers could accept at that time.

The Ark that carried all the animals into the Modern World was really inside the skull of Noah, in the form of visions and images stored genetically in his deepest unconscious mind:

The dictionary said "the first sprouts of the Earth," not of seeds.

Sprouts come from seeds.

It is referring to the sprouts of life, as you really know.

No, its not... at all. That's simply your imagination.

I am encouraged by your reliance upon lame come backs of little consequence and Ad Homo attacks which always are necessary once one realizes they have not actually proposed any thing that really blocks the main premises side down before them'

Look, I get it; You want the Bible to be accurate and you realize that you cannot go against science. This little game you're playing where you make up anything you want in order to squish the Bible and science together isn't all that uncommon. It degrades into your kind offering us the 'opportunity' to prove to you that you are wrong, except, you've already determined a prior that you're never going to admit that the Bible is inaccurate. This forces us into you just making up more and more nonsense to cover the lies upon lies you've told to maintain that Biblical accuracy.

We've gotten to the point where when the Bible says "seed bearing grass" you say it actually means "bacteria" and also that bacteria is the seed of life. That is completely and utterly ridiculous. Only the mental gymastics required to maintain Biblical accuracy with science can get you into such an unreasonable and foolish position.

I usually continue posting in the face of such obvius abdications from my adversaries and assume that lurking readers who have not commented either way are examining our response to one another.

They're all laughing at you, as you already know.

What I propse at this point is that we examine Genesis more closely and look for things which are written into the story such as to help me make the case because of more information that fits.

Of course! Lets just look at the parts that match up and ignore all the erroneous parts That's the Sharpshooter Falacy I mentioned earlier, remember?

A more scientific approach would get you closer to the truth: rather than just looking for things to help your case, try to find the things that would prove your case wrong! Its only when you are unable to prove your case wrong that you can begin to have confidence that it may be right.

So have at it.

One such incident concerns the hybidization between different species of those 22 humanoids in the genealogy.

As you know, Genetics has determined that all men living today carry the genes of Neanderthals, which is pretty much stated in the verses below:

Gen. 6:4 There were giants, (Homo Erectus of Methusaelian and Methuselahian kinds according to the bible), in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God, (that line of ascent which would not become extinct, Methuselahian links, through Seth, i.e.; Modern Homo Erectus), came in unto the daughters, (the sister species of Tubal-cain, Naamahians, a late stage Neanderthal type), of men, ("daughters" of the previous adaptation of the Methusaelian line of Cain, i.e.; Homo antecessor, derived through the line of Cain), and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men, (Neanderthals), which were of old, (powerful) men of renown (physical strength).

You're just making stuff up to squish the Bible together with science. You offer no reason for why those verses should be interpretted that way except to retro-fit them into your misunderstandings of science. The funny part is, you can't even get the science right, so of course your Bible interpretations are only going to be even more ridiculous and stupid.

Re: My Thread on the Science of Genesis
Only one continent can exist when there is only a single global ocean as described in Gen 1:9-10:

False.

Two continents could exist when there is only a single global ocean as if it was like this:

Or, as jar points out, it could be a thousand islands. Even today, all of the oceans touch each other and are in "one place".

To get your interpretation, Pangea would have to exist without even one single lake or pond or river or stream or any kind of body of water that was seperate from the ocean. And that's impossible.

Another false interpretation from you refuted by me. Try again?

Re: My Thread on the Science of Genesis

To comprehend what the Bible writers is saying, tho, we must read the whole context of the verse where it starts by saying, "Let the waters under the heaven be gathered"... so the plural reference to waters and the command to gather THEM into one place supports the interpretation which tells us that these ancients knew of the tectonic cycle that began with Rodinia.

Actually, the Hebrews envisioned a flat disc shape earth that was floating on the waters. They thought it looked something like this:

Of course.
Whereas that recent sketch of what medieval Jews thought about the universe is pretty much the same as christians believed until this Age, it is just evidence of the medieval ignorance that prevented factual interpretations of Genesis.
The religious people through out the ages did not have enough information about the facts which the Bible laid out for us today, when in the end times the Book could be opened and read in the way I am demonstrating.

But you are making up the interpretations to fit them with information! The Shaprshooter Fallacy. The only reason to think that your interpretation is right, is because you've already decided a priori that you want to make the Bible out to look accurate. We have no reason whatsoever to think that you have the right interpretation, in fact, we can be certain that what you are forcing into the the interpretation was nothing near what the original authors intended to write. As you admit, they were ignorant of the information.

So how'd it get there? I suppose you think god used his magic to include hidden meaning into the text that the authors were unaware of. So lets assume you're right, what does this do to the theology:

First off, god becomes some trickster that gives us this riddle/puzzle to solve. That's not the Chistian God. Second, he'd have to set up the whole thing where he was literally screwing over an entire culture of people just so that we cold get this secret message today. That's just evil. Thirdly, how arrogant do you have to be to think that over the last few thousand years, everyone was getting everything so wrong until one day YOU come along and figure out the whole thing? Oh thank god that he sent us YOU, the error-free magic writing interpreter... oh how bad off we'd be if you hadn't come along and figured everything out for us

Re: My Thread on the Science of Genesis
Secret messages are clearly secret because the people could not handle the Truth before this Age, the End Times,...

Oh god, you're one of the End Times people!? Well I'll be a son of a bitch.

People have been talking about this End Times for thousands of years... it never happens.

A comprehensive reading of the Bible explains that this is a closed book, not so much a secret as unfathomable before now:

One of the fun things about the Bible, is that you can make it say almost anything:

Deuteronomy 4

2 Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the Lord your God that I give you.

Galatians 1

6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7 which is really no gospel at all.


quote:
Proverbs 30

5 Every word of God is tested;
He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.
6 Do not add to His words
Or He will reprove you, and you will be proved a liar.


Heh, the Bible just called you a liar

From Message 289

Science does NOT refute that Rodinia/Pangaea was an event when "all the waters, (plural) had been gathered together into one place."

I already explained to you that this one was refuted. For all the water to be in one place, Rodinia/Pangaea could not have any ponds or lakes or rivers or streams or any water on it whasoever, and that's impossible.

Science does NOT refute Genesis.
WHERE IS YOUR EVIDENCE THAT IS DOES?

We cannot falsify your idea because you just make up the interpretation as you go to fit with the evidence.
