Vernan asked: "I presume you would also question the Lord's belief in the
writings of Moses and the prophets (expressed by Father Abraham -
Lk.16:31), on the basis that he - the Creator - was obviously unaware of
the Theory of Evolution."
Not sure of your point here. Maybe I'm brain-challenged this morning. Try
again, being more specific on what you are asking.
One question that might be pertinent is this: Was Jesus aware during his
earthly life of the "true" history of the earth, or did he have the
conventional understandings of other Jewish people of his day?
Specifically, if I were to go back in time, meet Jesus, and ask him his
outlook on relativity theory, or quantum mechanics, or the "old earth vs
YEC, would he have any idea of what I was talking about?
I suggest that he would not have. But I'd listen to arguments on the
John Burgeson (Burgy)
(science/theology, quantum mechanics, baseball, ethics,
humor, cars, God's intervention into natural causation, etc.)
