indeed my kind Sir, always at your service. Well Adam means adamah which means ' from the ground ' meaning a nation of people was raised up from a low state. its the cover name of a nation of people. the story of adam and eve is not the story of the creation of man but the story of the introduction of men with the spirit of God. so in essence there are no actual human beings named adam and eve. its an allegorical story. a masterpiece if I may add smiley
and quote me where I said its a story of a real Adam and eve. I appreciate you but not needed thanks.

First of all i do not think your brother should be in the seminary if he does not believe in what took him to the seminary in the first place. This then would not make him an authority to tell anyone that creation is a myth as that would paint him as a fraud (my apologies)

You on the other hand have a problem with beginning your statement and conditioning your mind with the word "myth" so every other comment from you tries to justify that.

What do you wish to verify? Creation or its process? To what end? Would that validate or invalidate God? If you see God as being bigger than depicted in the Bible then why bother about Creation or its process as this would mean creation or its story would be too small to even bother about or bother Him.

Like someone else already said, your focus should be asking the Question, "Who was/is Jesus"? Why did He come and die for me? How did everything from creation lead up to Christ? Is it sensible that He had to dies for me so i would live? Extend your philosophical view that way and perhaps the beginning would make sense to you.

Can you time travel? If you cannot time travel how then would you want to even debate creation? You cannot reason it out but you can understand it if you work your way from Christ backwards!
OK. thank you

Albert Einstein - did not believe in a personal God. A God that will heal and deliver. Although today he has been proven wrong by the overwhelming scientific evidence coming out of Scoan Church Nigeria. However, it is interesting how he arrived at that conclusion.
In developing the theory of relativity, Einstein realized that the equations led to the conclusion that the universe had a beginning.

He didn't like the idea of a beginning, because he thought one would have to conclude that the universe was created by God. So, he added a cosmological constant to the equation to attempt to get rid of the beginning.

He said this was one of the worst mistakes of his life. So, although Einstein was not a Christian, he had great respect for Jesus, and recognized that He was an amazing figure in history. Personally having grown up as an atheist in a non-religious home, Einstein initially saw Jesus as a brilliant teacher when I read the gospels for the first time at age 32.

How are you sure your parents actually were your parents? Were you there at your conception?

History has it that the scriptures were put together by witnesses and Historians have over many years vetted these scrolls as authentic copies which were later gathered into what we have today known as the Bible.

What you should focus on is this, The Bible says there is Power in that word..if it is false and untrue about what was written about Christ then there should be no power in it. Proof of authenticity is in its workings.

You say you believe in a God but on what grounds? With what foundation? Your musings which are finite in nature and would have made you run mad when you were about crossing your limit?

How can you see proof and rather than pursuing its authentication you apply inner ramblings and assume your inner ramblings may be the authentic proof you seek?

The worst part is that they are comfortable with thought of a deity punishing about 5,2 billion people for all eternity because they were in the "wrong religion"
Very nonsense concept of a supreme being


God doesn't punish anybody for being in the wrong religion. It is people that will punish themselves for rejecting the obvious truth of their existence.
