Actually I Learned All That From You

Harv,

I posted this on the Physics Forum first and then posted it here as an afterthought.

Now this whole idea of Commenorative Days I learned from you, including the idea that the full fruition of a kind of life like plants is mentioned in Genesis, even though it took millions of years to reach. Is that not more or less what you said?

My Hebrew bible says:

"Let the earth bring forth grass, herb yielding seed, and fruit tree bearing fruit after its kind, and wherein is the seed thereof, upon the earth."

Now plants did come first, some 1.3 Byrs ago, but grass only evolved some 33 million years ago. Not sure about fruit trees. So the bible is specific about what is created, if not when.

Now regarding extinction: if God is responsible for the creation of life, he is also responsible for its extinction. And if there is some kind of design objective, it appears that the reason for extinctions is to eliminate the errors of creation. That is a trial and error process to my way of thinking.

Richard
