Re: Checkmate, Christians
Whoever wrote that funny missed the boat in a couple places. First the Bible does not claim that man was made before the animals. Second there is a severe disconnect in item 4 that makes my head hurt just trying to think about it. Suffice it to say that it contains a mentally disturbing non sequitur that no sane person would miss. And who are "Marry and them" and who claims that there are no human remains from approximately 2000 years ago? There are millions of years (something like 2.5 or so million) worth of evidence of homo sapiens and his hominid ancestors.

It was a horrible execution of one of those. Get it?

I think that's pretty much what I said.

Re: Checkmate, Christians
That's going a bit far. It is a viable reading of Genesis 2:18-19.

Genesis 2:1 refers to the seventh day of creation and in my opinion requires a reading that includes the events in the previous chapter. In my view a reading that treats the events of 2:18-19 as occurring without the events described in days 1-6 from chapter 1 is simply not viable. I am aware that some people think otherwise, but I am not aware of any literal minded Biblicans that do so.

But yeah, I suppose someone deriding YECs might insist on a different reading. So let's go with your call of Moses living in Israel being the top 'howler' on the list.

Re: Checkmate, Christians
That's based on the assumption that you have one continuous story, and arguably placing that assumption above the text.

Yes on your first point, but I provided a textual reason for assuming one continuous story, so I think the argument that I am placing the assumption above the text is relatively weak (although possibly not non-existent). In fact I think the opposite assumption requires making 2:1 separate from 2-18, and arguably that assumption is contrary to the text.

My understanding is that it is widely accepted that there are two separate stories which do not agree.

I agree that if the stories are two different contradictory accounts, then I am wrong. But I don't agree that wide acceptance of that means I am wrong because the evidence for the acceptance is simply speculation that is not all that compelling. I am aware that your position is the one favored by many EvC participants.

If you've got examples of places where the stories are contradictory to the point where they cannot be read together, feel free to point them out. If they are considered off topic here, perhaps there is an available thread that can be used for such a discussion.

I think the most credible reading is that 2-18 simply expands on things that happened both before and after God rested from his primary efforts of creation; i.e. the creation of the solar system, stars, plants and most of the animals and Man. Most of the things I've seen pointed out as 'contradictions' seem to be based on reading limitations into the text that are not required to be there.

Re: Checkmate, ]
On a plain reading Genesis 2:5 denies the existence of plant life prior to the creation of man, animals do not exist prior to 2:19, women and men are not created together

I am going to address this in the thread opened for this discussion.

So, hydrogen fusion would be "hydrogen burning" and helium fusion would be "helium burning".

I have seen these terms used. In addition I have seen helium referred to as the ash. But those terms are always used in close proximity to a description of fusion. I suspect that the source of confusion is elsewhere.

You can't expect anything to be level but the love of Pete, make the gaps the same.

I'm guessing that he started working at each end and where he met, he had a bad gap he could not easily attend to.

Re: What Jesus likely really looked like
That poor man looks like he would have a problem getting his socks on in the morning, or even keeping himself from hiding under the bed for fear of ...everything.

Interesting. Perhaps your life experiences have allowed you to judge intellect from a man's appearance in a picture whose circumstances are totally unknown. I don't see anything revealing about the man at all.

It's the beard, isn't it?

Re: Thesaurus
All the intervening years in my own darkroom I had to decide how I wanted to crop my photos to print them on the standard paper sizes: 8x10, 11x14, or 16x20. Finally, in the age of digital photography, I have choices of paper sizes that match the format of my camera. My favorite is 17x25, so I can print full frame 16x24.

Lol!

All photos crop reality. No explanation needed, but I like this one anyway!
