Falk seems to be oblivious of the assumptions used in debates on origins, and of the difference between data and understandings of data. No one has a way to go back in time and study our history, so all ideas must be based upon assumptions. Those assumptions are the foundation of our worldview, which is our central belief about where the world came from and how it became what it is today. The Bible has many verses about the timing of creation and God’s hand in it. God spoke the Universe, heavens, Earth, life, and man into existence (Genesis 1; Psalm 33:6, 9; 148:5; John 1:1-3).
Genesis 1:26, shows the conversation between God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness...” By making man and woman in His image, He made us different from the rest of creation. These verses show how special you are to God. God told Adam and Eve to be fruitful and multiply, and to fill the earth and subdue it (or take care of everything He had made). This is the purpose for
I feel the strongest about designer babies. Based on my oversevation I fell that designer babies are good and bad. I believe that designer babies are bad for many reasons. I believe this because in the bible it says “God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” The bible also says “This is the book of the generations of Adam. When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God.” Finally it says “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you.” All three of these versus tell us that god created humans the way he wanted to.
The word theistic means God and cam from the Greek word theos. I am choosing to do my topic on theistic evolution. Theistic evolution means believing in both god and evolution at the same time. The first border of evolution states that there is a god, but he was not directly involved in the origin of life. This view is like Atheistic evolution.
The different of creator. In The Bible only one god created everything. In Greek there are many gods collaborate in created the world such as Gaea or Mother Earth make the mountains, rivers, seas and Zeus created human. Another thing that is different is the way that they split things up. In the bible it states that they split things up from good to bad, light, dark.
One similar aspect both scriptures share is the idea that God is the creator of earth and the universe, as clearly stated in Genesis as “God created the Heaven and Earth…” (Genesis 1:1) and in The Bhagavad Gita as “...the whole cosmic order is under me…”(Gita 9.8). Both scriptures contain creation myths which tell a story of how the universe was created. However, the contact between God and human is different among the two. In The Bhagavad Gita God communicates directly with Arjuna in a conversational/friendly manner to get the message across. Whereas, in Genesis God is referred to in third person and his actions, as commands.
GENESIS (1) Genesis 1:1-2:4a and Genesis 2:4b-2:25 are seen as two accounts of the creation which give conflicting reports regarding the order of the creation of man, animals and vegetation. They further present different conceptions of the Deity. The view that Genesis 2:4b (and the following verses) is a duplicate account of creation is given some weight by treating the Hebrew word toledoth as expressing the idea of origin. Genesis 2:4 says: These are the generations (toledoth) of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens. One coming from a western origin background might think that Genesis 2:4 and the following verses relate how the heavens and the earth were created,
There are many differences between the two tales; however, there are also quite a few similarities. One of the main similarities between these two stories is the fact that there are god(s) involved in the creation of life on earth. Even though Genesis says that there is one god and Popol Vuh says there are many, both stories are about the trial and error the gods face while trying to create humanity. The god in Genesis makes the mistake of letting Adam and Eve roam free in the Garden of Eden assuming they will not eat from the tree of knowledge. Of course, they eat from the tree, with encouragement from a serpent, and were banned from the garden.
Joseph Smith essentially created another god - a god that was once a man. His god is much more similar to the gods of Greek mythology than to the Hebrew God . Could it be a counterfeit god? In fact, Smith talked about more than just one God, and the fact that humans are thought to have the opportunity to become gods themselves, in LDS theology, is a clear departure from the monotheistic Judeo-Christian understanding of the Godhead. As shown above, William Law stated that Joseph Smith claimed to be a god to this
Thomas Aquinas on his treaties on the creation of Man. He produced various questions in the first part of the Summa Theologiae, question 93, Aquinas starts his argument by asking; “Is the image of God in Man.” In responding to this question, he refers to St Augustine who teaches that, “there is an image of God, but it is imperfect in the sense that we are not equal to God. But, Man is said to be an image of God as an exemplar. The image of God is perfect in the first born that is Jesus Christ who has identical nature with him.” In this way we can say that, man is said to be made in the image and likeness of God not because he is equal to God but because of his intellect which raises him to the level of being like God. Thomas continues in his arguments by quoting St Augustine in (Gen. ad lit.
