Response to Do Christians make their religion worthless?
A few examples:
The creation account conflicts with the order of events known; in Genesis the earth is created before light and stars, birds and whales before reptiles and insects etc..
The order of events known is the opposite.
God creates light and separates light from darkness, and day from night, on the first day.
Yet he didn't make the light producing objects, the sun and the stars, until the fourth day.
How could there be "the evening and the morning" on the first day if there was no sun and moon to mark them?
God makes two lights: "the greater light, the sun, to rule the day, and the lesser light, the moon, to rule the night."
The moon however, is not a light in itself, it merely reflects light from the sun.
All animals, as they were created by God, are herbivores.
Where do the omnivores and carnivores come from then?
After making the animals, God has Adam name them all.
Adam named millions and millions of species?
Who named the plants then? And the insects? And the bacteria? And .......
God curses the serpent. From now on the serpent will crawl on his belly and eat dust.
How did the serpent got around before then? :- )
"God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good."
God purposefully designed a system that ensures the suffering and death of his creatures and calls it "very good"?
All of the animals boarded the ark "in the selfsame day".
Millions and millions of species boarded the ark in the selfsame day?
Including marine life?
The ark was 300 cubits by 50 cubits by 30 cubits in size and a cubit was approximately 18 inches. There exist about 30 million species of land animals today, including insects, but excluding those species that went extinct and also excluding bacteria and marine life.
Do the math.
Noah sends a dove out to see if there was any dry land. But the dove returns without finding any. Then, seven days later, the dove goes out again and returns with an olive leaf.
How could olive trees survive a flood that: covered the highest mountain tops, and, lasted nearly a year?
What would several million species of animals have had for nourishment while on the ark for nearly a year?
And what after the flood? There would have been no plants and such after the ground had been submerged for nearly a year.
What would the carnivores have eaten?
Whatever prey they ate would have gone extinct since there were only a few of each.
How did all the species, the New World primates or the Australian marsupials for instance, find their way back after the flood subsided?
Noah kills "clean beasts" and burns their dead bodies for God.
This would have caused the extinction of "clean" animals since only a few of each were taken onto the ark.
Hares and coneys are unclean because they "chew the cud" but do not part the hoof.
Unfortunately, hares and coneys are not ruminants, they do not "chew the cud."
Bats are referred to as fowl.
Unfortunately, bats are not birds, they are mammals.
All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination to us.
Unfortunately, there exist no such birds, and, a perfect God, by admission, created abominations.
The musterd seed is the smallest of seeds.
Unfortunately, the smallest seed is that of the orchid.
And on and on it goes .............. not even mentioning the sun revolving around a fixed flat earth.
