And frankly, I don't pay much notice to the Old Testament anyway, with the whole "durrr if Adam an Eve had two sons how there are girls" logic riffraff. I prefer sticking to the actual lessons that the New Testament provides and not worry about the relevance of creationism.

Most of it is full of old, outdated radical laws anyway. We don't even use them anymore. Who the **** cares if rabbits were thought to chew their own cud?

Idk... Genesis is absolute necessary. But some of the stuff is beyond our human comprehension, it's not right to go about doubting every single thing.

True, but I hate it when atheists assume every single Christian takes the first book as literally as some of us do.
I've decided that God probably doesn't exactly exist in our realm of time, y'know? It seems to explain most of the origin stuff a lot better. So the whole "seven days of creation" thing really could have taken billions of years for us, but mere days for Him, hence matching the earth's actual age as concluded by geologists.
And if God isn't bound by the laws of time, who's to say He didn't create all life as basic organisms and let evolution go to work? We humans, after all, came in dead last in the time scale (as in most recent) as well as in Genesis. I just think so many Christians take the whole "made in His own image" part as being made to look like Him. But the Bible doesn't describe God as human, so why does that rule us out not looking the same today as we did thousands of years ago?

I think Genesis involved a lot more scientific reasoning than most skeptics think. I consider myself a Christian who is supportive of science and its progress.

I understand where you're coming from completely. It's too bad we'll never really know until we pass away. And I think the craziest thing in the world is to imagine eternity. Just sit there and try to imagine it.

I agree. I think God purposely made it impossible for us to understand existence fully. It gives us more time to reflect on life itself rather than trying to unlock every universal secret.
Hell, it's why He made the universe itself so vast. So many planets, so many new things discovered all the time, it's not likely we'll ever explore every inch of it. Just a testament to His power.

To be honest, I know I can never become atheist because I can't find the mere act of existing possible without Him in control. Just the whole universe coming into play. Before that, nothing. Not even nothing, because nothing wouldn't exist either. It's too baffling a thought to imagine a non deity-created universe. But I believe that's the whole beauty behind it.

Angry atheists are hilarious.
