Let’s examine the Genesis creation story and see why it is not trustworthy and reliable. Besides contradicting almost all of Science the story itself is full of errors. I will point out a few:
“in the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth” – As the Sumerians stood by and watched in amazement.
“And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.” – Darkness is an absence of light, not something separate.
“And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.” – you don’t walk into a lit room at night and say “it’s still day in here”. And a day is a full rotation of the Earth, not movement of light.
Clearly the people who wrote the Bible didn’t know the meaning of the word ‘omnipotent’, because apparently God takes a nap after a week of work. Not only that, but the account of who was created first is unclear, humans are said to have been made before animals, but later the opposite was said. And in the Old Testament God was supposed to have made everything, but later on Jesus was apparently there too.
The problem with the creation story; and the Bible in general, is that it is very unclear, and can be interpreted in different ways. That’s why there are 45,000 different denominations, the Bible causes more confusion and war than any other book. Luckily we have Science to figure out what is the truth and what is not.
