There is a never ending debate between Evolution and Christianity.
Honestly? Some Christians think that they are Evolutionists, and this debate does not involve them. BUT, I have discussed this with MANY Atheist Evolutionists, even some of the ‘Big Name’ people. And some of the Big Name people, I have only talked with.
The truth is what we believe determines most of what we do.
If I choose ‘Evolution’ as God’s only involvement in Creation, then I am more likely to be a ‘Liberal Christian’ and support Gay Marriage and Female Priestesses.
If I choose to believe that God was completely in control of Creation, then I will interpret the Bible more Literally, and I am more likely to be called by Liberal Christians a ‘Fundamental.’
Without spending several more pages on the logic behind the two sides, let me just ask a couple of simple questions.
Since we have all been told the famous line in Genesis, “And God said, ‘Let there be light.'” Okay, maybe not every person has heard that line from Genesis chapter 1, verse 3, but I think almost all of us have.
That is the THIRD verse. Before that, we are told God created from nothing, ‘Ex Nihilo,’ and there was ‘darkness.’ While ‘Ex Nihilo’ is the usual interpretation, and I believe God created from nothing, that part will be discussed in a later blog.
From page 8 in this series, http://www.space.com/13320-big-bang-universe-10-steps-explainer.html, accessed on 16 Nov 2015, we find:
“For the first 380,000 years after the Big Bang, however, the intense heat from the universe’s creation made it essentially too hot for light to shine.”
So, who told Moses that everything was created in darkness, and then came light?
Einstein was not actually born yet, and I doubt he time travelled.
Was it God who spoke to Moses, or was Moses 3,500 years ahead of Einstein when he wrote Genesis? And yes, some will argue Moses being a real person, but I save that for a later time as well.
Why? Because, someone 3,500 years ago, wrote Genesis.
And I do not really think “Einstein told Moses what to write in Genesis.”
