Without sin, then why would we need a savior? In proponing old earth creationism, christians play into the hands of the likes of Bill Maher, who vainly attempts to mock supposed inconsistencies and absurdities in the Bible, such as, if sin and death came into the world with Adam and Eve, then what about their parents, and if they had no parents, then how can you say humans or pre-humans were around before the supposed date of creation, according to the generations in the Bible, at circa 4000 B.C.? Point well taken, as the old earth creationist christians also say that Noah’s Flood was just a swollen river in the Middle East, more fodder for Maher who surely knows what the Bible clearly says about Noah’s Flood, that written which he mocks even more, because he’s naturally or deliberately ignorant, feeding equally on either interpretation of Genesis history, being the virulent antichristian “progressive.”
Jesus was serious about Noah’s Flood, just google Jesus Quotes Noah’s Flood, so what are the old earth creationists thinking about regarding when “real history” begins to be described in Genesis, for since not at the Flood of Noah, then where? If death from sin has been in the world for hundreds of millions of years, then shouldn’t Adam and Eve have been from that long ago? And if so, why did God distinctly say the universe and earth were created in six days, that which the orthodox hebrew rabbis still believe, and who should know better what the texts mean please?
Almost all the ancient cultures have legends of the original pair, with different names, such as Zeus and Hera in Greece, whose prediluvial world was destroyed by the Flood of Deucalion and Pyrrha, Noah and his wife, according to Greek legend, with the Flood of Ogyges about nine centuries later when the Ice Age ended, comporting with sound archaeoological reasoning as you will see when you read under category Catastrophic Climate Change, the legends of the ancient world actually confirming Genesis history, if you take the time to investigate, which Bill Maher and old earth creationists apparently have not bothered to do.
As the darwinists such as Bill Maher know, if they can establish that the first book of the Bible, Genesis, is mythology in the publics’ mind, then the battle is won, and the old earth creationists are just helping them along in saying that the words written in Genesis really don’t mean what they say, which of course, leads folks like Maher to just ask, then why believe the rest of the Bible? Ignorance being Maher’s specialty, no doubt he is not versed in the material such as at this website, and other great young earth creationist sites such as http://GlobalFlood.org for the mechanics of the Deluge, and Dr. Sean Pitman’s excellent Detecting Design http://detectingdesign.com/fossilrecord.html about the fossil record in the geolgic column, but maybe Maher will bother, and we can talk about it all on his show, which certainly would be alot of fun.
