it was just some excess baggage that i see now that i have for other posters (not on this board) that have came up with some wild explanations to explain away these contradictons.. some that would make even jesus do a double take..
and i have to admit..i was over taken by tunnel vision..and all i saw was "bible" and contradictions" and something snapped..
but it nice to see you kept a level head and just waited for the light to come on
and it did...and didn't i feel foolish in having miss-read your post..
Maybe instead of being all hostile to a person just because of a stupid topic or subject that you seem to take offense to just about every time a person talks to you about the "Bible" (oops, there's the forbidden word again!) and contradictions (oops, there's the other one!), perhaps you'd like to at least be open-minded to the fact that some contradictions can be explained instead of resorting to your hostile attitude toward others and your seeming hatred of the said subject in a discussion. Thank you.
You mean like whenever a Bible topic comes up you just *have* to have a negative attitude toward the Christian people that post in it and that try to help in your understanding of understanding the Bible better and you pretty much *always* think that you're right? And not to mention the fact that you blamed me for acting arrogant when I don't believe I was until you started whining about Genesis 1 and 2.
i feel that if you post an topic of make and statement saying that the bible has no contradictions..well you have to expect someone to disagree with you..
You can disagree without being a jerk which is what you did to me for what 30 posts? And duh, of course people are going to disagree with me. DUH!
an in terms of being open minded...i am..but it is you christians that are not...
Yeah, because we all know that everyone who disagrees with you is close-minded because that's the way you see things so it must be right! And please explain to me how "us christians" are being close-minded. Or did you mean to imply that I was the only one that is close-minded?
are some of you so "thin skined" that any objection to your post is looked upon as being hostile and closed minded?
Are some of you so "ignorant" that you can't see the effects of your actions to other people? And no, I don't see every objection that way. Just the ones that present an extremely negative attitude toward a fellow Christian. Wouldn't you try to stand up for someone that is in your race/religion/team?
Allow me to provide an example of what I'd like to see:
Perhaps you could be open-minded instead of being hostile to new ideas.
I did not mean to convey an impression of hostility. I try to keep an open mind toward new ideas as long as they have some solid support. What I was actually trying to say was that your proposals don't yet appear to fit this category because <...explanation or reference to previous explanation here...>
Exchanges of the form "You're being hostile," "No, you are" are not acceptable they're personal comments, and because they're off-topic. Just stay on topic, if someone's getting out of line board administration will catch up with it. If you feel board administration is being slow then send email to Admin.
Considering the age of the texts of Genesis one and two, imo, we need to cut some slack. Some of the same folks who will recognize pseudohuman primates concocted from a tooth or jawbone insist on nitpicking a few ambiguous statements in this ancient document to pieces.

Off topic, (start new thread in Human Origins?) Mr Buzsaw, you do know that some prehistoric humans are not just jawbones but complete skulls and near-complete skeletons, at the right ages?

But isn't this is the whole and complete source for all of the biology, physics, geogology, astronomy etc for the creation scientist? Are you suggesting that it is to be taken losely or only roughly? Doesn't that rather pull the foundations out from under all the claims being made about how we know that modern science is wrong because it contradicts God's word?
