The Book of Genesis: scientists afraid for their jobs?
In reply to scientists who say we have much to learn about the secrets of life, I say read the Bible. The chapter called Geneis tells you all you need to know about life, the universe and everything... it's about thirty pages long so it's fairly comprehensive about the whole thing…. But you scientists keep ignoring that the work has been done. Are you afraid for your jobs?

I am an MD. When bird flu mutates to include an ability to spread from human to human, and then 40 million people are lying dying in the hospital, I will only consult the bible on how to deal with this problem. I am glad we have cleared this up, and I think we should all feel comforted that we finally have a solution... More

Answered By: Henry - 8/30/2006
science doesn't disprove creation. In the sense that the Genesis is a symbolic book, and that there must have been a beginning - and we don't know what came "before" that beginning (not to mention the fact that "before" has no meaning because Time itself didn't exist back then... More

Scientists attempt to (and do) gain VERIFIABLE knowledge. I am certain that no scientists are concerned for their jobs based on a 30 page manuscript that requires a modicum of faith just to keep from laughing out loud at the fantastical stories contained within. I.E. Noah' Ark.

Is that information enough to figure out how to build a telephone or a car? Or enough to know about infection and how to treat them with antibiotics? I think there is still plenty about how the universe works that the Bible does not tell us, whether you believe its accuracy regarding cosmology or not. You may regard... More

and still the largest, most important piece of question still is unanswered by Genesis, or even the whole Bible itself, that is the true begginning of the Creation. What created the God?
Answered By: Liars never lies - 8/30/2006
If that is how you feel about it and believe then you should not be using the Internet or computers as they were developed by scientists. When you become ill you cannot use antibiotics or other medicines as most of them were developed by chemists and life scientists. Stop eating any foods that are not grown by yourself... More

Quite honestly I think that alot of time science actually helps prooves the bible's truth. For example: the bible says the Earth is round thousands of years before it was recognised as round and not flat. Genesis says God created the world in 7days, but 2 Peter 3:8 says "With the Lord a day is like a thousand years... More

Genesis is mythology, not science, so it doesn't really explain anything, and scientists have no concern about it. It is no more valid than other myths in sacred books of Hinduism, Taoism, Shintoism, Islam, Mormonism or the Church of Elvis Presley. Bishop Ussher studied the Bible and determined from it that creation... More

Okay Pastor, why didn't the Book of Genesis talk about dinosaurs? They had to be around before the flood, didn't they? Was Noah remiss in not including them on the Ark?

I've read it. I saw nothing about how photosynthesis works. Therefore, it doesn't have all the answers.
