Try "maturity without history," professor.Whereas Embedded age is "age without maturity,"
Adam Clarke's Commentary said:It appears that God created every thing, not only perfect as it respects its nature, but also in a state of maturity, so that every vegetable production appeared at once in full growth; and this was necessary that man, when he came into being, might find every thing ready for his use.
lol! Of course! I suppose same miracle that whisked it away somewhere safe, never to be seen again? Can't have all that 'evidence' laying about, right?
Now, now, professor.
We're not just talking about anyone here.
We're talking about Adam & Eve, are we not?
Not letter-for-letter.That's in the Bible?
Better.Speedwell said:Was it a tropical paradise like the Galapagos Islands?
I suppose you could say so.Which means we're talking about special pleading, are we not?
Or better yet, start with Adam & Eve as a baseline and then discuss what makes mankind different.TLK Valentine said:Let's start with the average Joe (or if you prefer, the subaverage Joe) as a baseline, and then discuss what makes A&E different.
The fear of the LORD.TLK Valentine said:What makes a person "mature"?
I agree.TLK Valentine said:(Whatever it is, goodness knows we don't see nearly enough of it these days...)
I don't know what that genetics book is going to say, but I bet they will talk about evolution. So it's an evolution book because they believe in it. Even though there is no evidence of evolution from a common ancestor. It's assumed.No, evolutionists are not afraid of reading books and taking courses. Theres is a genetics text sitting on the shelf by my computer--right next to the Oxford Companion to the Bible and the Bible itself. Why not go the same places evolutionists do? Read The Genesis Flood, Noah's Ark: a Feasibility Study, In the Beginning: Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood, Darwin on Trial and many others.
How can you rule out that your God is so amazing that he didn't leave anything to chance, but set the universe going in the exact way that all the chances would turn out exactly to be this universe and us in it as we are now? Is your God not able to do that? Did God write the bible, or did fallible men who maybe didn't understand everything about God and the universe, write it?
Mine talks about how mutation and the others sources of genetic variation act to produce a random (bell curve) distribution of somatic variation in the population of a species, as well as how that process can be verified experimentally. Very interesting it is, but for some strange reason the authors have entirely forgotten to deny the existence of God. Looks like I'll have to get another genetics book.I don't know what that genetics book is going to say, but I bet they will talk about evolution. So it's an evolution book because they believe in it. Even though there is no evidence of evolution from a common ancestor. It's assumed.
I don't know about all of the others, but I know many have and we "poo poo" them because we have read them and find them without value. Their gratest failing, IMO is that they, like you, argue against a straw-man version of the theory of evolution.How many evilutionists read those books you mentioned? Most of the time someone mentions a Creationists book or Creationists site evolutionists just poo poo it and say it has no value and it's point are not valid because it's Creationists.
You know what that tells me?
That tells me the Ark was a miracle.
