"2.We know they didn't know much of anything about DNA, continental drift, dinosaurs, what causes rainbows, or how to make airplanes.
They didn't know the Western Hemisphere existed or what was on the bottom of the ocean."
DNA: Didn't know. Continental Drift Didn't Know. The Bible doesn't claim anything about airplanes. Which really has alot to do with the subject matter at hand by the way. Dinosaurs. Yeap. Intances are made in referance to gaint creatures that could only be interpreted as Dinosaurs. Besides who says the word dragon is what the ancient word was for dinosuars. Rainbow. Sort of. They know why it is there, but not how it worked. Again the western Hemisphere has what to do with this topic?
4) Angry, attentive Gods with strange rules that soemtimes don't seem to make sense, but later you'd find at least some of the rules made sense.
Ummm, right while yor ignore the loving, mercifal side the is clearly present there in the jewish religion, the laws are not confusing and for there thime made perfect common sense. Some are outdated some are not. I'm not saying to there wrong, it's just that God made the laws for the time and the fat that the savior had yet to arrive on the scene. Some laws are still to be followed some are not. It is as simple as that.
I will answer any questions relating to which should be followed and which should not.
