Thread Promoted
As Faith noted, this thread was started in the wrong forum, but it seems fine and I've promoted it to the Bible Study forum. The copy over at Coffee House is now closed.
I jut realized that The Bible: Accuracy and Inerrancy is a better forum for this thread, so after posting this message I'll move it again.

The only value is that it is a great example of the common practice of the Christian Cult of Ignorance of quote mining, taking a single line out of context and trying to sell it as whole cloth.
I'm going to disallow denigrating labels like "Christian Cult of Ignorance."

Re: what gets created in Genesis 1

Now that again is a really stupid, stupid, stupid question; as silly as the concept of God's light period; something of no worth, value or meaning?
...
You are free to take my answer any fool way you want but actually I do have a clue and in fact did more than offer a clue, I explained why your question was really, really, really stupid.
I'm not going to allow this kind of personal critical language. This will be the last warning.

Moderator Concern
I want to register a concern here that I've mentioned before in other threads. Arguments like these are not really arguments:
  • You believe that way because of your worldview.
  • We use the same evidence you do, we just interpret it differently.
  • That's just the way I see it.
Oftentimes these arguments are used as if the author thinks they are a valid objection. They are not. They are at best a starting point. Their proper use is as introductory phrases for the real argument, e.g.:
  • You believe that way because of your worldview, and your worldview is wrong because...
  • We use the same evidence you do, we just interpret it differently, and here's how we interpret it...
  • That's just the way I see it, and here's why...
If anyone objects then please propose a thread over at Proposed New Topics to discuss their validity as arguments when used by themselves.
