If God created the world in 7 days, along with all the plants, animals, and people, then how did dinosaurs die billions of years before Adam and Eve came? amirite?

I believe that they weren't physical days. In the bible is says a day for a year and also a day for a thousand years. Therefore, it means a period of time not 24 hours per say.

@riri I believe that they weren't physical days. In the bible is says a day for a year and also a day for a thousand...

Yea most evolution believers/Christians believe that they weren't really seven days, more like seven eras and all. Myself being one.

6 days and millions of years ago, but yeah.

Well, maybe time passes faster for God. Or maybe something was lost in translation. Or maybe God's not real. Or maybe he's testing our faith.

Magic....

Screw religious debates. Everyone calm down. You're just being annoying. Both sides. That is all.

Honest question: what are you gaining by telling someone they're wrong in their faith? (not OP specific just everyone in general) you're a fucking idiot if you think you can change what someone deems to themselves to be fact through the inernet. Just because you throw out a few verses in the Bible or some scientific facts, doesn't mean you will change their ideas let alone their faith. Absolutely no one here has any refutable proof for God or against Him.

"Its amusing how you call radiocarbon dating bullshit and use the Bible to back it up" (implying the Bible is bullshit)

@pb55020 "Its amusing how you call radiocarbon dating bullshit and use the Bible to back it up" (implying the Bible is bullshit)

Honestly, just ignore it. There are a lot of people out there who are going to swear up and down that you're wrong, or who are just plain bigoted. We ALL have a right to our beliefs. It's something that no one can or should take away. I just ignore it when people start bashing the Bible or God. Nothing to be done.

@pb55020 "Its amusing how you call radiocarbon dating bullshit and use the Bible to back it up" (implying the Bible is bullshit)

What? I personally hate most of the Bible. Its not a history book. I also fully believe in God, and most of the Bible isnt a good representation of an "all loving being".

The church says it's not fully historically true but only symbolically and religiously true.
and what? You've never beaten the shit out of someone you love?

then that girl is stupid as hell. I can't remember the book, but a dinosaur is described in the bible. I can't remember by who, but many people try and say they were talking about an elephant. Well, "tail like a tree trunk" hardly describes an elephants tail. And that's not an exact quote either, so if y'all know what book/chapter/verse I'm talking about you should share.

According to the creation museum, dinosaurs and humans lived together.

I have none, as I'm not in that sort of field or anything. And not to turn it around but, do you evidence that there was not?

I typed out an entire essay on this topic. Here is the really really short version: Its a fable. Not the meaning of the word fable as in "lie" but as in "a story passed through generations". This fable was created because the pagans which were ruling over the Jewish land at the time believed that there was a war between the good and evil gods. The good one and the world was created from the corpse of an evil god. Every human on the world was a slave to the good gods and should be serving them. The creation story was really just a way of going against the pagan society and making the creation of the Earth a positive appeal. The church says we don't need to take it literally and those who do are completely mental not taking science and the writers' pasts and history into account. The Bible says, though, that to God "one day is like 1000 years" in 2 Peter 3:8. And it is a VERY strange coincidence that the order of the events in the Bible are the same order that scientists believe the world and all of its creatures.

The Bible says that a day to God is a million years and a million years is a day. So technically each day was more or less a million years I guess.

Allegory. A good portion, including Genesis, of the Old Testament is considered an allegory. However, people have the right to believe that it was created as said in the Old Testament, interpreting it literally. Well will never on this Earth know with absolute certainty; we will only be able to conjecture and reasonably believe through science and faith.

The only fault with that is that many people use it to remain ignorant and go "BLAH BLAH BLAH BALH I CANT HEAR YOU" when someone says otherwise.

People can be ignorant if they want to and will use any excuse. Let them believe what they will, this is a case where there is nothing you can do.

@HopeImrite There really is nothing i can do. But i dont like it

In a perfect world, everyone would believe the same thing and it would be the truth, but we don't live in that world so we have to just kind of get along. Besides, this is a pretty benign belief.

It was 6 days :P

I actually just realized this... it says there was night and day, but it doesn't say how long the days were. Its not like the Earth always rotated in 24 hours.

It wasn't seven literal days. It was seven periods of time.

Not to start a fight, but if God was capable of creating the world in 7 days, he's completely capable of creating fosils to go along with it.

They didn't, I believe creatures similar lived with humans.

hahaha flinstones? never said it was... and carbon dating is bullshit it can't be proven-
see in Exodus their was this this little thing that occurred- a world wide flood, in which sediment would have piled up a ridiculous amount, therefore causing what looks like years and years (AND years) to have piled up over a ridiculously short amount of time.
