    Theistic Evolutionists, please show me from the Bible how Adam and Eve got here via evolution.

    I personally believe they are incipients.

    If, in your opinion, the Bible doesn't say, please admit as much.

    Please don't be offended if later, I use this thread to show that you have no Biblical* support for your theory.

    * Note: 'Biblical support' --- not 'scientific support'.

    Please respond with book, chapter and verse; or admit there's nothing there.

    Genesis 2:7 KJV

    And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

    Clearly this speaks to man evolving from earlier primates to the point in which God imparted a soul.

    :clap: What do I win???

    I will take your lack of refutation as implicit acquiescence, and hereby declare myself the winner!

    Does this qualify as proof of evolution for Hovind's purposes, and if so, could you pick up the creation phone and have him wire the 250K to me? If not, I'll just take reps.

  7. AV if you don't mind me asking, what are the purposes of your threads? I have seen so many threads like this where the answer you want is silly and self-defeating, or just straight up pointless.

    Are you trying to say that as Christians we shouldn't accept evolution as viable because it's not biblical? That's kinda the subtext I'm getting from your question, and if that's what you want to hear I have a refutation ready.

    You, AV, specifically, creationists generally. You guys like to quote mine, like, alot.

    Yes, he indeed likes to ask silly questions, only to resurrect them at a later time to serve his current purpose. There really is no good reason, other than that.
     
  12. Then i should probably answer them eh?

    That's the dumbest question I've ever been asked. I kinda wanna put it in my sig.

    So you're asking me to mix creation and evolution into a mega theory or what?

    Personally believe whatever you wish.

    The bible doesn't say because the bible thinks we are animated dust.

    Lol. I won't be offended in the least buddy. :)



    You got me.

    It's quite simple. If Adam and Eve got here via evolution then the Bible would not mention evolution. The absence of evolution in the bible is proof that Adam and Eve got here by evolution.

    You have it all wrong. You shouldn't find any mention of evolution if evolution is true.

    We've seen your "refutations" of evolution, yes.
     
  16. Congratulations, Mr. AV1611VET, you've established that Theistic Evolutionists are not literalists!

    Have a cookie.

    Yes AV, the Bible neither directly supports or denies ToE. We didn't even know about ToE until 150 years ago!

    The Bible also doesn't mention Starbucks coffee, Amazonian rainforrests, Rotweilers or Ford's Model T, but we know all of these things exist.

    Guess again --- the Bible is more up-to-date than you think.

    If It can support the Internet and an expanding universe, It can deny evolution.
     
  19. Just because you can use it to support/deny something, doesn't mean it can actually do it on its own.

    The Bible is a tool for helping us understand God's plan by showing us how He dealt with those who came before... and like any tool, it can't do much of anything without a competent person weilding it.

    You do know that the earth reversed its magnetic field in AD 58, causing the poles to switch?

    And that Nero blamed it on the Christians?
