“Men in their arrogance claim to understand the nature of creation, and devise elaborate theories to describe its behavior. But always they discover in the end that God was quite a bit more clever than they thought.”

I love this line its so true. One book I remember called Sargon the magnificent.
The best part was the end. A female Scientist went through the beginning of Genesis.
She went through and translated it all from poetry to scientific terms.
It actually matches up pretty closely. It just has to be interpreted properly.
"Days" means "ages" for example.

Do google Bertram Russell and 'God of the Gaps'.  I'm sure you won't care for Dr. Russell and his world-view, but he has a point, and one a fellow ought to be familiar with in these discussions.

Ugh just what I need more nonsense from the Atheist crowd.
I know about atheists I used to be one.

Is that looking it up talking, already familiar with Bertram Russell, or a good guess?

The tricky part, of course, is finding a definition of "ages" that fits and isn't ad hoc.

Not really just get yourself a good concordance. I've known pastors that have translated the bible form the original greek and hebrew
word for word. Oh by the block hebrew isn't real hebrew.

The Mind Worms are the natural defenses of the living Planet?the white blood cells, if you will. In a world in which unassimilated thought represents danger, the Mind Worm seeks out concentrations of sentient mental energy and destroys them, ruthlessly and efficiently.
~Commissioner Pravin Lal 'Mind Worm, Mind Worm'
