That rejection is an oracle of lack of knowledge.

Sorry, what makes Genesis correct? There are hundreds of creation stories that claim equal validity. What you purport is not knowledge, but faith, because you have no proof.

"Sorry, what makes Genesis correct? There are hundreds of creation stories that claim equal validity. What you purport is not knowledge, but faith, because you have no proof."

Faith comes from things NOT seen. Genesis is the description of the formation of "flesh" man, which is not living without the breath of life which means "soul" that entity which is not seen by the naked flesh eye. Genesis lays the foundation upon which the rest of the book follows, and planted therein are the witnesses that gives Genesis its credibility.

Genesis does NOT tell us the age of this earth, nor the age of the souls of man, only the "FLESH". This earth provides the evidence that give Genesis and the rest of the word credibility of what is past, it is FAITH that one has to believe what is said to come will come.

As a Christian, I have an open mind. The Genesis stories were imported into Christianity carte blanc as part of the acceptance into the entire Bible of the cononized "Old Testament". Just as science is to be scrutenized for accuracy, so should be any scriptual writings of the past.

The decendants, from "Adam", just don't add up and stupidly indicate a "New Earth" and if we want to be critical of agnostic science, we should also be just as critical of what religious "truths" we accept as fact. Just because some past generation has "canonized" writings doesn't mean search for devine truth should be aborted.

Personally, I believe there is no conflict between true scientific discovery and creation. It is simply our very slow discovery of the original design.
