God probably got rid of the fossils of those evil giants & the rest of the people that didn't listen to Noah's warning.
But nothing is impossible to God, he can do anything he wants with all his power & wisdom even on specific situations.
Everything needs a start & process in order to appear & continue operating (with the exception of Jehovah cause he always existed and is the Almighty
It wasn't magic it was power. God doesn't use magic.
things that exist in the whole universe. That's all the evidence we need as Christians.
But when was the last time that you read about mankind's extinction caused by volcanoes?
God shrunk all the animals
In response to "So every single human being on the planet sinned enough to deserve eradication? Even infants, small children who haven't done anything whatsoever? Wow, that's one benevolent god!":
Yes. The small children were too busy being sacrificed, raped, or traumatized to do much sinning, though. They would have grown up to be horrible.
(man, the lengths these guys will go. The cognitive dissonance must give them migraines at times)
And now, amidst all of this rampant idiocy and hilarity, I close this particular edition (oh ya, more are coming. PLENTY more, actually. I have so much material just from the same topic.....yes, all of these in this edition were from 1 single forum thread) with this absolute doozy. Is it the worst of the worst? You decide. Like Faux News says, We report, YOU decide. Although, I must draw a line of differentiation between myself and Faux News, as the following statement is not misquoted or misrepresented in any way. Here goes nothing:
Someone made this statement (still talking about the Noah's Ark story): You are also aware, that 2 animals are not enough to start a race, right? It would led to horrific genetic deformities over the generations- no one species can start from just 2 animals. And the response from some moron:
How do you know that those species needed either salty or fresh water?
Since "evolution is a fact", if the salinity of water back then was less than it is now, the fish in the water back then were able to survive in it, otherwise we wouldn't have any fish today.
There's a reason the story is called NOAH'S ark. It's because it's about Noah and his ark. It's not even about plants or aquatic creatures. If God took care of 8 people and some animals, what makes you think he didn't take care of the aquatic life and plants?
Well, I'm sure God found a way to do it. Nothing is impossible for him.
Water produces oxygen & hydrogen. Enough to breath and help them to survive as well.
That's where faith comes into play. It does stand to reason that the deformities wouldn't have been all that bad, considering the planet was only...two thousand years old or something.
WOW. Just fucking WOW.
Oh, and here's a pic to sum up this awesome forum topic (which is going to provide comedy gold for a few more blogs, amazongly):
