It sure doesn’t confound any Old Earth Creationists I’ve known (e.g., Hugh Ross.)
Do you mean “formation of fossils?”
This should help you:
Why do you prefer that explanation to those found in the aforementioned article?
What about it?
In what way? I find many of his positions in conflict with the scriptures. Also, so many of his positions conflict with what God has clearly revealed in his created universe. I prefer God’s revelations to r_speir’s.
OK. I too believe God is omnipotent. Lots of us on PS believe God is omnipotent.
I don’t either.
I agree that God transcends nature and can “control” nature—but I’m not sure what “alters it with a wink” means. I see no evidence that God alters nature casually and regularly. (Do you have evidence of that? The Bible makes no such claim.)
Perhaps you mean millions of stars in our galaxy.
The Bible doesn’t claim that God created all of the stars at the same time. Stars continue to form over time.
Yes they do.
As Hugh Ross likes to say, “The Bible describes a worldwide flood—but not a global flood.” The Hebrew text of Genesis says nothing about a global flood. It describes a flood of the ERETZ (“land”.)
