Re: You're missing the real message
Note that I am not AnswersInGenitals. I am answering for myself.
Answers, you must believe in theistic evolution (TE). You
accept that the earth itself is roughly four-and-a-half
billions years old.
That the earth is over 4 billion years old comes from physics. It does not depend on TE or any other form of evolutionary thinking.
I assume that you believe the six days (Yom) of creation
were of an indeterminate amount of time, perhaps up to
750,000,000 million years each. The day-age theory.
I take the creation story to be story telling, myth making -- perhaps poetry.
It is not history. It should be trivially obvious from the writing style (genre) that it is not history.
On day three of creation God made the dry land to
appear. In addition, He created the tree; grass; flowers;
and, herbs on the same day.
‚Äč
The life giving rays of the sun did not reach the earth
until day four, which according to TE would have been
750,000,000 years later. Perhaps you should check
into the necessity of photosynthesis.
Or perhaps you are the one who needs to think about photosynthesis. What you believe is clearly false. The creation story is mythology, not history.

Re: You're missing the real message
NRW, the God that I worship says that in the beginning
He created everything. It's recorded.
Nonsense.
Your book says that. But your book was written by humans. There were no recorders. There were no observers making notes. It is not history.

Re: You're missing the real message
At least the authors of the Holy Bible received their
knowledge straight from the Creator.
Then they must have horribly garbled what they wrote.
Night and day before there was a sun?

Re: SHOW US, candle2!
Famous magicians make deals with demon in which
the demon assists them with their magic, but after
death the magician must become their slave.
Oh, bullshit.
How old are you. Even a 10 year old knows better than you about how magicians work.
