You want like minded?
I can do that.
The universe has many wonders, and they are all wonderful. It amazes me often that the same atoms over here are one thing and over there are a completely different thing. That cells come together to form whole beings. That the sun is an element-making machine!
The sort of people who would agree with you are also around, I'm sure.. I know not everyone around here agrees with me, at least.
I'll see about getting that source for you. In general, it came from Answers in Genesis.
It's... difficult, to say the least, to not get overly passionate in defending a point of view on the internet, and it too often does come to personal attacks. I'm not against continuing, but, as you said, it's getting harder and harder to not devolve into CAPSLOCKVILLE.
Unfortunately, I cannot watch YouTube videos. They're blocked or... inappropriate... on all computers I have regular access to.
I'll take your word for it being beautiful.
I don't know what method God used to create the Universe, only that the Creation account in Genesis is the truth as far as it does describe what happened, and the timeline given is also accurate.
The Old Testament was a Jewish book. Why is it so important to non-Jews? Why would the Jews share it with the non-Jews who were not God's special people? When one actually looks at all the events that had to come together to even get the Bible into non-Jewish hands as a book worth reading, it speaks more volumes about who was in control than anything else. Only in a world where God is actually real could the Bible have come to be as huge a thing as it is now. Without God, it would still be a Jewish book, and nobody would have paid much attention to it, and the New Testament would never have come together.
The kind of God who can put his hand into that can certainly also put his hand in to the translation process and keep it the way he wanted it. He also would not mislead us as to how the world was created. The problem with saying that, perhaps it was created over billions of years, discredits the entirety of the Bible to me. If it is untrue in the first few pages, why should I take what it says later literally? If I don't believe it when it says it took 6 days to create the earth, then why would I believe that in three days Jesus was raised from the dead, literally? And that is the danger that swaying slightly in one area does to the entirety of the gospel.
If Jesus wasn't raised from the dead, we have no more hope as Christians.
All that was to explain why it is so important, from a Biblical worldview, that we don't start taking the assumptions of scientist as facts over eyewitness testimony from the only person who was there at creation - God himself.
Granting, of course, that a non-belief in God or even of the Bible will make all that seem ridiculous to you.
