God bless you Earl. God didn't "need" to take six days to make Earth. He did that on purpose because there is a significance to each day and in taking that many days.
You won't know what, neighbor, until after you die?
lol, which one?
What an unusually blasphemous post, even if it's typical behaviour of the ungodly and ungrateful.
I hope it's a level 2 :D
personally I have come to the conclusion that I won't know until I die. I don't like it but it is forced on me. haha
I don't believe typical Christianity (or the other Abrahamic faiths) viewed god as a subjective, favorite flavor, type of perfection, but an objective, he can do anything with no limits and no flaws. if subjective perfection is your take then obviously all views are equally valid
perfection seems to have a diff. meaning to all of us.
for example. hypothetically I could like my coffee with a scoop of honey and milk. i believe it's perfect. while for you, you might think just drinking it black is perfect. I guess what I'm saying is perfection is relative to the person.
I don't disagree with your assessment but I also question perfection.
does a perfect being need enjoyment and accomplishment? wouldn't perfecting entail a permanent state of both those qualities or a lack of need for either? I think the whole idea of perfection is irrational.
which is why I'm arguing not that god should have done it differently, but that the bible is not a literal document.
Ahhhh. Well said.
sorry let me explain more. the hands on approach is usually more enjoyable. for example if you are an artist and you had God's powers would you make paintings instantly? I would think doing as such would be boring and make the task mundane. while doing it by hand can come with a real since of accomplishment.
things are better done when done slow and careful for limited beings doing complicated tasks. for a perfect, all powerful being, any task should be as easy as a functioning adult putting 1 foot in front of the other.
the Bible says one day to God Is A Thousand Years and a thousand years is one day so if a year is 365 days and each day was a thousand years what would be the math?
why rush things? sometimes things are better done slowly and with hard work than the easy way.
Where did you get the notion that the god of the Bible (which is the god I assume you're bringing up) created the universe instantaneously but not the Earth? Last I read he created these things on separate days. The duration of said creation was not mentioned.
he wouldn't be a powerful if he took more than an instant to create anything. unless he chose to take his time, for some reason.
