    But, (and this is the important part Im pointing out to you) but the Text does clearly say she was the mother of "all the living"

    I dont know how the verse reads in your Bible,but I remember my Bible School days, and we had a Bible teacher that taught us from his latin background , and he talked to the cl*** about how the bible actually say something like ""mother of all life"


    So from the context we get the idea that this is only talking about her own children, and not in fact, "all the living creatures"


    Im just saying that the same Bible says things like all "creation" and all "the world' and its not talking about animals, or trees or birds etc.
    Its just talking about people.




    so when we might say something like "all of creation follows his teachings"..or "the whole world followed his ideas" we are not talking about the fish and birds and apes and mice or trees etc.

    The words like "creation"..."the world",,,the "universe" etc, ...cant be used like automatic blankets to cover everything you can think of every time.
    They must be used within their limited given context, and the context for the death that was the result of Adam's sin is given at Romans 5....and it is only talking about human death.


    Adam sinned, and death is the result, and it was p***ed down to us via Adam.

    Not to our pets.....not to deer...not to cows.....not to worms....just to us who are the children of Adam.




    So when Paul tells us that death came to 'all men" it is wrong to twist this into meaning more than what Paul wanted.

    You might ask me how I come to know so many things about this topic?

    How come I seem to be able to answer every arguement put out by the Young earth teachers?


    The answer is, that I got a chance to learn what the YEC teachers taught by being taught personally by the best Young Earth Creationism teacher alive....Mr Ken Ham.

    Ken Ham is the guy running around the whole world, (world = lots of christian churches,,,LOL) teaching peopleand writing books and setting up websites , pushing the YEC teachings.

    I went to his 8-week ORIGINS cl***.....taught by him to me personally.




    So in other words, when I run into guy on the internet that I see are simply quoting their YEC websites and books, I just smile.....I have already been taught that stuff by the best....Guys on the internet can only quote the words of others, I have listened to the guy who wrote the books himself!




    and so.....this is not my first rodeo

    So you contend that before man evolved animals were dying for millions of years. So lets look at the way animals could die. Other animals could kill and eat them but that can't be since God said He gave every green herb to animals for their food, Gen 1:30. They could have died from sickness and disease but God said everything He made was very good not prone to sickness and disease. So why would there be death in a world where there was plenty of food, no natural enemies, man or beast, no disease or corruption?

    In the garden?......or.....outside the garden?
    What does this term "garden" mean to you?
    What image would the people have who first read this word "garden"?

    Is life the same for the things inside the garden compared to what life is like outside the garden?

    so where is man first from, inside the garden or are we from outside the garden?




    Now lets read Genesis 1:28 and see what it actually says compared to what the YEC teachers want it to say....

    God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground

    so what things is God handing over to humans?....fish,birds living creatures of the land....

    thats easy to understand, lets read on-


    Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food

    here what more is now also handed over to human?....plants, fruit trees.

    "They will be yours for food"...they?
    What "they" is God handing over to us again in verse 28 and 29?....


    Oh thats right- fish, birds, living creatures, plants fruit trees....etc.

    You are getting ahead of yourself Alan, that didn't take place until Gen 9:3"Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. I have given you all things, even as the green herbs."

    Actually I'm just reading and sticking to the Text as it is written.

    That is also shows us both the main error the YEC teachers make, in that they simply dont stick to the text as written.

    Just go over the verses again that I listed and read them as they are on the page....

    the "they" is all that God is listing and talking about.....(birds, fish, trees etc).


    that is what the Text says,,,that is what I believe.




    This is just like when I was in the ORIGINS cl*** and Ken Ham was telling me that the first thing God created was "the light"
    I just was reading the Genesis account at the very time he said this to me, and something "clicked" on and I raised my hand...

    I asked "What does the Bible say is the first thing God created "In the beginning?"




    That one question opened my eyes to the many errors taught under the heading of YEC

    What I mean is this-

    I beieve the very first thing the Bible tells us that god created in the beginning was "the heavens"
    So I have the source for all the light later talked about in the rest of the story.
    I dont need to invent anything, I dont need to twist things around, I dont need to come up with a way to have a light, yet that same light has no source...

    I believe the word "heaven" is talking about stars like our own sun.
    I believe it is also talking about worlds like our earth, and moons like our own moon.

    So when I read at genesis 1:1 that god made first "the Heavens" I got the stage all set to keep reading the account with all of the players in place.


    But thats not how the YEC teachers have it.
    They have the "light" created first.
    And, thats a problem because they dont have any source for that light for a few days yet.

    Thus the need to twist into the story the idea of a type of light that does not need a source.
    That also means that the "light" talked about in genesis cant be at all the same light with the same type of source that we see today.


    So that means the light of the YEC teachers was at best...'temporary".....a kind of stop-gap light that was created by God who did not get around to makeing normal light for a few days yet....





    YEC "light" has gone away.
    My "light" is still there to be seen each day.



    YEC light was "magic'

    My light is "real".....and I can point to it.

    According to science, the start of the universe was the Big Bang.
    All that we see around us in our universe had this one single starting point.
    Every star , every dead world like our moon, every earth-like planet we might see in the future, is made from stuff that came forth from the Big Bang.

    In the Bible this very same moment is talked about at Genesis 1:1 " In the beginning God created the Heavens and the earth."
    The word "Heavens" has several meanings in the Bible and in different contexts, but of these many understandings of the word is the idea for the "Full canopy of the night sky" .........in other words all the stars and galaxies of the universe.

    So like what we find in science, the Bible also has the creation of the "heavens" as being the very first thing listed that God has made.



    But what about life?
    Is there agreement about where all life is from in both Science and in Genesis?......yes there is!


    Now according to Science all the life we see on the earth is just the natural result of change on the earth.
    That life is just the earth itself ....that Life is part of the Earth.
    In other words....animals and humans are just a part of the earth that has come to life....

    Is this all that different than what the Bible teaches in Genesis?.......Nope!

    "And God said, Let the earth bring forth gr***"
    "And the earth brought forth gr***"
    "And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature"
    "And God made the beast of the earth"

    "And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree"
    "And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air"

    So what we see in the Genesis story is the clear fact that God made all life out of this very earth itself.
    Life, be it the life found in the plant world, or the life found in the animal kingdom, is all from this very same single source....and that source is the very ground of the earth itself!


    So there is complete agreement about the source of life in both Evolution and in Genesis!
    The text does not indicate the “Big Bang Theory”. It is just a theory. The text does say that God is the creator of all things. There is nothing that indicates how he did it other than he spoke it into existence. (Hebrews 11:3) This also can mean that Jesus, the word of God, made the worlds out of nothing. There is no room for the big Bang Theory

    When you read the Bible, don’t read into it what is clearly not there. God made each item and living thing. There is no agreement between creation and evolution.

    Hebrews 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.



    But what about humans?
    Are we also from the same source?


    yes we are!!!!!!!!!
    Genesis 2:7 states that the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. That sounds more like the direct creation of man by the very act of God creating man out of the dust of the Earth than a long process of evolution. Evolution is just a bogus idea to relieve man of the responsibility of answering to a Holy God.

    Genesis 2:6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
    Genesis 2:7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

    When are you going to start paying attention to the Bible?? Genesis 3:20 states that Eve was the mother of all living. There is such a thing as context. The animal reproduce after their own kind and so does man. Eve is the mother of all living humans. You try to make out that you are a wealth of knowledge, but you can’t read a simple sentence and get it right.

    Genesis 3:20 And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

    Is the Bible right or is it wrong?? The bible never tells us something changed on the land. Through out the 6 days something new happened but nothing changed. Did God not say that it was good? if so why change anything?

    How did the Earth bring forth life? Not evolution. God created it all.

    John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    John 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.

    John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

    I believe the point I was making is that in the Bible we see that humans share a common source....a starting point with the animals, (like the great apes)

    That source is the very ground of the earth itself.

    According to the Text we are part of the Earth that has come to life.
    (as all all the other animals that we share this with)

    The Bible does not "teach" evolution, rather it teaches what walks hand-in-hand with evolution and is not in conflict with evolution.

    Evolution is a study of how the earth came to have life on it.
    the Bible is more interested in the "who" put life here question.

    So the point of science is not the same point that the bible has.
    However, because both science and evolution as well as the book of Genesis are talking about the same events in early earth history we do see that the things that say fit well with each other, and give the student a very well-rounded understanding of our history and how we came to be us.....

    as far as I know, the last known change to the evolution of man into what we now call "Modern Man" happend about 10,000 years ago.

    Now evolution never stops, its always going on even to this very day.
    but the ability of man to see it is kinda limited due to our current levels of science.

    But lets just back up and see what the Bible is saying and if that compares to science?

    Now according to evolution, alllife stems from the first building blocks of ife that is actually of this earth itself...in a very real way we are the earth 'sprung to life"


    This is confirmed in genesis when it tells us that humans and animals are from the ground of this planet.
    We are a part of this planet...the planet is our source and its where we are from.



    So in both science and in Genesis we see this same idea taught, that humans are a part of this planet and its our source...

    .
    I was actually just pointing out to all the people that believe that "animals die due to Adam's sin" that this is simply not taught in the Bible,and that you cant say that "all death" including the animals, is due to Adam just as you cant say that Eve was the mother of all the living...including the animals.

    Eve was NOT the mother of the animals because she was created AFTER the animals!!!!!!
    So that knocks down the idea that animals death is due to Adam's sin...
