the Flood: the dimensions, that boat could not even
hold 1/3th of the animals in pairs and they would have to have another
ark just for the food.
Who got rid of all the dung, and other wastes on the ark.
The waters sweet and salt would become mixed together, how come the sweet
water fish survived?; they did not keep them on the ark did they? Rain
water comes from the ocean and goes back to the ocean. (according to science)
where did all the water go?
Scientist have found no evidence of a flood in the earth crust.
How did the animals get of the Mountains? They
were not all Mountain goats were they?
How come the bible says the earth is flat?
I don't agree with the popular global flood interpretation of Genesis.
My own interpretation of some of the events of the early chapters of Genesis
can be found at the Genesis Interpretation link.
And thus none of these questions are relevant to me.
Question: How come the bible says insects have four legs?
You do know that insects have at least four legs, don't you? Do you think
that the writers of the Bible thought that they had only four legs? This
question reveals not the ignorance of the writers, but the ignorance of
the reader - their ignorance of the figures of speech being used. The verse
in question is from Leviticus
Lev 11:20,21"'All flying insects that walk on all
fours are to be detestable to you. There are, however, some winged creatures
that walk on all fours that you may eat: those that have jointed legs for
hopping on the ground."
The phrase "to walk on all fours" simply means to walk on four of their
legs. All these insects walk on at least four. The grasshoppers are different
in that of their six legs they hop on two. That puts them into a different
category from other insects.
How come the bible favored the jews? (I thought he loved everyone)
The Jews were "favored" as you call it, by being given the great responsibility
of handing down the Word of God. But there will be greater judgement for
them because of their greater responsibility. Similarly, more will be expected
of those who grow up in a Christian enviroment. The more you know, the
more you will be held responsible for. All this will be revealed on the
day of judgement. Jews will not be saved from hell just because of their
How come he made light twice?
I assume you are referring to the 7 days of creation in which light was
created on the first day, but the sun, moon and stars on the 4th. Again
I refer you to the Genesis interpretation link which explains this.
How come God killed mercilly innocent children in his raids on unbelievers?
(and by the way: at that time anyone who was not jewish was fair game)
I'm not sure what "mercilly" means, but I think I understand your question.
God creates and God destroys. That's God's right as the Creator. But if
people are "innocent" as you propose, such deaths do not mean that they
are condemned. Everyone has to die eventually. Even Jesus, though sinless,
died. Concerning the suffering of "innocent" people, I suggest you read
the book of Job in the Old Testament. By the way the term "Jew" or "Jewish"
did not come into play until the Babylonian captivity and it only referred
to those from the Southern Kingdom of Judah. I also suggest you read the
context of the passages. Or is it that you just heard of these questions
from someone, but didn't actually bother to read the Bible yourself?
He surely never interfered when your good Christians (Catholic and Protestants
alike) killed all those so called witches, muslims, and Jews, and anyone
who did not believe everything that was spooned to them).
God never condoned such actions, except in the case of witches. But that
was in the Law of Moses, which given to Jews, not Christians. There were
no commands given to Christians to do those kinds of things. And I have
often publically objected to these kinds of actions by post-Biblical institutional
Christianity. Thanks for bringing this up so that it can be clarified that
such behavior is not consistent with Biblical Christianity.
