Adam and Eve vs Tyrannosaurus Rex

Published by at 3:50 pm under Current Events

The Big Valley Creation Science Museum has opened its doors this week in Big Valley, Alberta, featuring displays on how men once walked among dinosaurs, a giant model of Noah’s Ark, and a set of English scrolls tracing the family of King Henry VI back to the Garden of Eden.

Like its controversial counterpart in Kentucky, this museum will explain how the world and all its animals, of every epoch, were created at the same time by God. Evidently, a typical day for Adam and Eve involved staying one step ahead of the velociraptors.

That we still have to deal with this bunk in the 21st century is beyond the pale for a society that has gained so much advantage from its science and technology. Christians would be so much better off doing what they do best – helping the poor, doing charity work in their own communities, providing aid and assistance in disaster zones, and helping some people to achieve more spirituality in their life – than trying, and failing (in ways that open themselves up to ridicule), to explain how Genesis could have occurred as written in scripture.

    Well said.

    You have to ask yourself something.

    How many non-Christians/Jews believe the world was created in 6 calendar days roughly 6000 years ago?

    I mean, if there is any science behind that at all – at all – then you would think that some scientist somewhere who was not already a believer would have come up with something – anything – to support the so-called “science” behind creationism. However, it is only those who already believe in the literal truth of the Bible that “discover” any “science” behind creationism.

    Sorry. I don’t buy it.

    I respect the faith of those who genuinely believe the truth of that story, just as I respect the faith of those natives who genuinely believe there was an actual raven who created the world or the Buddist or other, but let’s not allow ourselves to voluntarily enter another Dark Ages by replacing science with belief just because we don’t like the results that science gives us. No other theory of how the world started and how life and humankind began has been accepted across different cultures and backgrounds. That is very telling.

    The Creation Museum is a sad statement of some Christians disdain for knowledge and truth. But it took Europeans Christians centuries before they accepted that the sun and stars did not revolve around the earth and realized that their faith could not be shaken by scientific truth. It has only been 250 years or so since geology first started telling Christians the earth was millions of years old at least and only 150 years since Darwin opened our eyes to evolutionary reality, so maybe we’ll have to give those folks some more time I suppose.

    Has anyone thought that maybe they all have it wrong? Just because a person is a Christian does not mean that he even believes his Bible.

    Case in point. It has been pre concluded by most Christians that the earth was made in 6 ”calander” days. When we look at the bible however , the sun moon and stars were not created til day 4. So , what orbit was used to constitute a 24 hour cycle. The first 3 days where represented by darkness , or absence of God , to “light” , the Spirit of God moving upon the face of the waters. So God defines the day as the evening , and the morning.The problem comes when we limit a day as only a 24 hour cycle , and when we limit creation , ( physical , and spiritual) in it’s entirety to a limited time frame.

    Case in point .

    In Jeremiah

    4 23: I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light.
    24: I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.
    25: I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.
    26: I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness,and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger.
    27: For thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end.
    28: For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black: because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it.

    This passage shows clearly that prior beings resided on the earth, and that God rendered a judgement on that world.

    Paul ascribes creation to both phyical ,and spiritual.

    Colossians 1:16

    For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
    17: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

    Lucifer and his Angels had already fallen , and expelled from where ? wasn’t it from heaven or Gods domaine? This wasw created long before the recreation of a fallen world.

    We see in Jeremiah that there was no man , but there where cities that God made desolate , and that the birds of the heavens where fled before man was ever created .

    Hebrews 1:1: God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
    2: Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

    Did anyone notice that worlds is in the plural?

    This has all come down the the limited definitions that man has imposed on the use of any given word in the Bible , weather we are talking about a day as constrained to only applying to a 24 hour cycle , or creation , as only referring to physical creation.

    If you notice Gods choice of words when he speaks in the past tense referring to , “God created the heavens and the earth”.
    In the past tense again when he states that ” the earth was without form and void ” , and in the past tense again when he says ” and darkness was upon the face of the deep.

    It is evident that God is not the babbler , man has tampered with the language intended to explain what actually transpired , and then man went and published a perverted version of creation.

    The Church now has to redefine a lie they have defended by interjecting more lies to their theory instead of believing Gods word.

    Prov:23:9: Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words.

    Prov:23:16: Yea, my reins shall rejoice, when thy lips speak right things.

    Careful, Jonathan. In the US, going against this in some states would be betraying the true Conservatives.

    It’s a sad fact, but the decent into ignorance and religious extremism is partly what made my wife and I leave that country.
