    I'll fix you.

You think that the Bible actually describes the creation of Earth then you're either uninformed or being deceitful.
    I encourage you to start a thread on this very subject. It would probably be interesting.

    That may be, but that is not the argument. The argument is does life on other planets disprove the Bible, the mere fact that the Bible states that the Earth was created in one day and is six thousand years ole and not over billions of years old refutes the Bible.



    Inconceivable...



    Faith in something that does not exist is indeed your choice...
    Well, first of all we have no proof that there is life on other planets.
    So how can you disprove one thing by using an unproven thing?

    2ND of all what the bible states has been debated for centuries.
    Example the earth is 6 thousand years old according to who's time frame.
    Would that be eastern or Pacific time.
    The same with the time of the big bang theory is the time fram based on standard or daylights saving.
    Perhaps devine intervention has a differant time frame all together
    Ask tourself this question which planet is older in years Mercury, Earth or Jupiter.
    As far as faith not existing that is your beleif I respect that.
    However to not have faiith in ones self to succeed, would be difficult for me.

There is no such description because the lights in the expanse were not designed for life. God gave care of the earth to man, but the heavens are the Lord’s (Psalm 115:16).

    There are numerous sites that say essentially the same thing, and then all we have to do is read Genesis itself. The Bible is the Word of God. It is not debatable. It says what it says and means what it means or it is nothing. If one part is debatable or incorrect, then all of it is debatable. The Bible is all or nothing, for either God is Infallible or he is Fallible. Christians can't have it both ways.

    Well, OK... but how does the absennce of proof equate to proof of absence?

    I do not think it does. If the Bible never mentions God creating extraterrestrial life, does that actually mean it did not happen? Maybe God deemed it unimportant to relay this information to us at the time.

    Only if you assume The Bible describes every action ever underdaken by God.
    That assumption is, well, unsupportable.

    It seems that we concur, though I am intrigued to see Bodhisattva's response.

    Re: Does life on other planets disprove the BIble

    I admit that I have not read all of the responses in this expansive thread, but I have saw that many have the same stance that I have in that the Bible never claims to be an account of all of the acts taken by God. Thus, life outside of Earth does not mean the Bible is false any more than the discovery of dinosaurs have.

    Well God's word may not be debatable what man writes can be.
    Now I know some Religous people and maybe some presidents may say the God speaks to them but although I have faith in God , organized religion is a differant story,
    However this is my opinion what others think is theirs.

    You should try harder at the ultimate and less at the actual.lol
