Thank you for acknowledging my post @swamidass and @John_Harshman.
Sorry if I have been unclear to you both.
Basically, What I am asking is that does not scripture point to a young creation of nearly 6000 years? This is if you accept Isaiah’s words?
King James Bible
Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
New King James Version
Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things that are not yet done, Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, And I will do all My pleasure,’
Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, ‘My plan will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’;
Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’;
Declaring the end from the beginning And from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’;
Declaring the end and the result from the beginning, And from ancient times the things which have not [yet] been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will do all that pleases Me and fulfills My purpose,
There is a purpose!
So are we in agreement that this scripture directs us back to the beginning of the Bible?
Being renowned and respected scientists in your fields. I am sure you are very familiar with examining and extracting empirical evidence to try and marry up your discoveries with mankind’s theories of how and when life appeared in all its manifestations. ( Even though my own personal journey has all been based on WHY? )
Have you ever used your analytic skills to dissect the very first sentence of the Bible in the original language?
This all points to Symbiosis everything happening over a very short time at the same time, the six days as stated.
Are you aware that when you dissect the first seven words of the Bible in Hebrew, the letters and words serve to announce the following days of creation that also is twofold as prophecy over the next seven thousand years?
This could only be confirmed with hindsight of the actual time we are living in.
This all serves to reveal the nature of a Loving creator with a plan for all of us. He does not hide his plan and this sentence serves where you are concerned to reveal a young creation that happened all at the same time.
I am not a scientist, yet do respect what I learn from educated people like yourselves. What I love more is our creators word as it reveals in more simple terms for everyone without the understanding the need for understanding cells.
How? By a intelligence beyond our comprehension at present.
The LORD Challenges Job in what understanding we have.
Job 38 - 42 Please read what our creator says to Job.
When? It is revealed in scripture in the first sentence of the Bible. I refer you to the link previously provided for this sentence announcing days of creation in each of the seven words in Hebrew. Each word also reflects a 1000 year prophecy too.
I am in awe of our creator being able to reveal each 1000 years of time as well as the days of creation in one sentence at the beginning of his word.
Would not all our efforts be better focused on including myself, on admitting we are no good at loving our neighbour collectively, we all turn a blind eye to the suffering of our fellow humans as though it’s not happening in reality.
We take for granted we have hot water coming out of a tap, we take for granted our waste is flushed away. We have swathes of empty offices at present and homelessness does not collectively move us to action.
We in the modern world are always asking the question. Why does God allow all this suffering. When in fact it is us producing it and allowing it.
Yes he does have the record of all our individual accountability and the ability to put all suffering right, and will soon.
So let’s all look out for each other by whoever is put in front of us and express genuine concern for basic needs, rather than wasting time on promoting our discovered perceived knowledge that does not promote or reflect the Loving Nature of our creator. We collectively put being smarter than the next guy over the whole and complete teaching of our creator.
Cain said “ Am I my brothers keeper “
The truth is yes we are.
Please watch the link before responding as no point otherwise. It is awe inspiring if you really want to understand when with insight into each word and letter.
If you disagree, I have no problem being corrected and have no pride to offend.
Sorry for thinking @MHeiser was on this forum. I watched some of @swamidass interactions with @MHeiser about localised flood,
You have to imagine that into scripture when every creeping thing and all flesh was destroyed.
The scientific hydroplate theory explains this global flood for me.
