1. the light/dark one

>> is false anyway

2. 38:8 who shut up the sea with doors when it broke forth, as if it had issued out of the womb.

>> maybe sea water was made in a big pot by a recipe.

3. 38:12 hast thou commanded the mornings since thy days and caused the dayspring to know its place. 13 that it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked may be shaken out of it.

>> the ends of time have handles on them not
the globe and the wicked are stuck and can't escape time without help

4. 38:24 by what way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth?

>> crystal prism parts the light;
winds are indeed driven by my pal Sol

5. 38:28 hast the rain a father
>>Randy Raindrop a clone, or
immaculate conception
cloud seeding

6. 38:29 out of whose womb came ice?
the ice machine was made by intelligence

7. 38:35 canst thou send lightenings?

8. 39:9 will the unicorn be willing to serve thee?

Basically in all the above, the being claiming to be god is also claiming resposibility for everything that happens- like god produces ice from himself, and is the father of rain, and sends lightening.

If you were very primitive and visited our mid

We now know from science that all such things happen naturally without any need for an intelligent being to intercede.
>> if you like patent infringement

In those days, nature was not understood and it was thought that such an intelligence was needed.

>more intelligence is needed not less,
>not just more singsong

But beyond that claim, we can see some fundamental misunderstandings of nature- like that light can scatter wind, or that the existence of day and night can shake the wicked, or that the sea came into existence like the birth of a mammal, or even that unicorns exist.

We covered this

So the basic understanding of the world 2,000-3,000 years ago attributed almost every event to god and 8understood such events as the intercession of intelligence to make things happen. We know now that such thing happen automatically

>> Now we know intelligence is unnecessary?

in accordance with the laws of nature and that much of what happens is random.

>> Random means math is running it to happen anyway?

There is no element of randomness in the scripture of Job.

>> I don't know how to take that.

>>Thank you
