Is god logical? Of course not! That was a rhetorical question. I suppose everyone knows about the story of Creationism? No, I don't mind giving you the gist of it. Source: Wikipedia
First day: Light is created. ("Let there be light.") This light is not the sun or stars, as these are created later. It is described by some as a primordial light. The light is divided from the darkness, and called good by God. The statement in verse 8 that there was evening and there was morning is often cited as the reason that the Jewish day starts at sunset. Second day: The firmament of Heaven is created. The waters above it is separated from the waters below. Third day: Land is created, separated from the waters, and named. The water is also named. Grass, herbs and fruit-bearing trees are created. Fourth day: Lights are made in the firmament of Heaven, to appear regularly, aiding time-keeping. Two particularly large lights are made, the lesser one the Moon and the greater one the Sun. Fifth day: Air and sea creatures are created, including "great sea-monsters". They are commanded to be fruitful and multiply. Sixth day: Land animals are created, and God calls them good. Man and woman are created in God's image. They are told to "be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it." Humans and animals are given plants to eat. The totality of creation is described by God as "very good".
Now, I'm trying to be perfectly logical here, Creationism just doesn't make sense. Here are a few points that defy high school science.
- God created light and separated light from darkness and day from night on the first day. However, he didn't make the sun (ie. those little things that produce light) until the fourth day.
- Plants were made on the 3rd day, before the sun were made to drive photosynthesis.
On the other hand, the Bible has a lot to say about everything else, like sex, oral sex, hand job, and some strictly 18+ stuff.
I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.
-- Song of Solomon 2:3
My beloved put in his hand by the hole of the door, and my bowels were moved for him.
-- Song of Solomon 5:4
No comment stuff
There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses.I guess God was serious about "be fruitful and multiply", else, sex wouldn't be mentioned so much in the bible. For a full list of Genesis reference to sex click here.
