I don't see the problem.



He created say a fish, a simple fish, how come there are millions of fish now, all different... because they weren't there to begin with.

But, if on the sixth day (?) god created man, and 'man' was Adam and Eve, what about stone age man, and iron age man, and bronze age man?

Well, paleontology is divided into Eras, Periods, and Epochs. We know that the Precambrian Era was DOMINATED by sea life of various kinds, and that a large part of the Paleozoic Era was as well. The account of the fifth day of creation says that God created "the great sea monsters" and other sea going creatures. That matches the account.

Now as far as your question is concerned, would it make sense for you to brush your teeth all day? Let me explain. God created most Mesozoic life at the BEGINNING of the 6th "day". That didn't mean that he couldn't later on create Stone age man, Iron age man, and Bronze age man, after killing off the dinosaurs. And then, when the time was up for those "men" they ended too, and God created modern man...

Have you, perchance, watched 'It's not ok to be gay'? That classic of godtube?

I believe the high point is when he rhymes 'perverted' with 'converted'.

Correct.

The dinosaurs never recovered after the flood...

I disagree. God destroyed the dinosaurs at an earlier part of the 6th day.

... also if God is against homosexuality how come "his creation" came about having homosexual tendencies?

Because, when God created humans, they were perfect, they were not supposed to die, and they could not sin accidentally. After Adam and Eve sinned INTENTIONALLY, humans lost perfection.

Abomination... I really did look up that word when I came out of Homosexuality" beautiful lyrics.

Adam and Steve is actually originally from Alan Partridge if you used to watch that.



Because, when God created humans, they were perfect, they were not supposed to die, and they could not sin accidentally. After Adam and Eve sinned INTENTIONALLY, humans lost perfection.

So God's innitial plan was to make Human's incapable of Death, but Adam and Eve ****** that up?

It's part of the comfort function of religion. What can humans not explain - death. What does religion do? Gives explanations for death and reassurances about the process.

Yes that was God's original plan, to make it so that there were no natural causes, by which humans could die.

Search the internet, scientests still do not understand why our cells begin to die...

What did he intend to do when earth became overpopulated? Would he then kill? Or would he snap up another planet.
