10 most recent arguments. do realize that the Bible was first written in Hebrew, not English right? The word day in Hebrew, yom, has several definitions. Among these is an unspecified amount of time.

It supposes to be the "Word of god" where I assume that the expectation that it is a literal truth comes with it.

While I do believe Genesis is literal if the correct vocab is used, are you really going to lump Psalms and Proverbs into the literal category as well?

LOL not really. They weren't fanatical at all.

While I object to most of the things in the image (except the comment about the atheists, many atheists are more "moral" than alot of Christians), she is merely expressing the need to be aware we are in a republic/ democratic society and should treat it as such.

BTW to get past the 50 char. limit, use lots of spaces

No, but convincing people of this who have believed the 24 hour day thing is very hard to do. I tried to convince my youth pastor once and he thinks I've gone off the deep end each time he teaches on creation, I silently in my head dispute every single point he makes.

I do keep this in mind. However one main difference though from other religions. Most religions teach the wisdom is already there, ready to be "enlightened" in some way using your own wisdom from within yourself. For Christianity, wisdom is within, but only after salvation, and the knowledge does not come from within yourself, but from the Holy Spirit, who enters you upon salvation. While it comes from "within" technically, at the same time it actually comes from an external source.

To all verses cited in Proverbs-

Proverbs 2:6-8

6 For the Lord gives wisdom;[the literal translation s wisdom comes from God]

from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.

7He holds success in store for the upright,

he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless,

8for he guards the course of the just

and protects the way of his faithful ones.

9Then you will understand what is right and just

and fair—every good path.

10For wisdom will enter your heart,

and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.

11Discretion will protect you,

and understanding will guard you.

The theme is wisdom comes from God, not man, and all the verses you listed base off this theme.

Ummm didn't the Dead Sea Scrolls disprove that?

Not really. You cherry picked a few verses and then didn't use other verses to back up your philosophy behind using these verse. You just cited numerous examples of the same basic thing. Your argument makes sense in itself, but not in relation to the rest of the Bible as a whole :/

LOL, why is this under dispute again?

Time is not metaphorical. This is correct. However a literal definition of the Hebrew word for day (yom) is an unspecified amount of time.
