Exodus 7:10 - King James Version:
Let's make sure we see this in the same "context". The way I see it, we have Moses and Aaron appearing before Pharaoh. Aaron has been commanded by God to throw his staff on the ground in front of Pharaoh. He does so, and the staff "becomes" or turns into a serpent / snake.
Is that also your understanding of the meaning of this verse?
Yes Sir I'll accept that.
I'm pretty sure I know where you are going with this and I'm ok with it but just so you know. I do not have internet access at home so it will take me sometimes several days to respond to your inquiries.
I would also like to ask though. Are you willing to hold the "science" of evolution under the same level of scrutiny?
If so could you explain the following Statement:
"Would you not say to yourself, "Some super-calculating intellect must have designed the properties of the carbon atom
, otherwise the chance of my finding such an atom through the blind forces of nature would be utterly minuscule." Of course you would . . . A common sense interpretation of the facts suggests that a superintellect
has monkeyed with physics, as well as with chemistry and biology, and that there are no blind forces worth speaking about in nature. The numbers one calculates from the facts seem to me so overwhelming as to put this conclusion almost beyond question.
(boldfacing is mine. not to change the text but to bring attention to it)
Is he not saying that a superintellect designed the properties of the carbon atom?
Sir Fred Hoyle was an atheist (up until this time) and one of the worlds foremost authorities on astronomy. Yet he was unable to prove ONE theory supporting the "Big Bang", nor his own theories as to how the universe evolved. He actually coined the phrase The Big Bang.

And I believe, as does Gen1GT, that science is based on facts. Do you believe all of these following ten statements to be true pertaining to known science and can be corroborated using secular sources?
(1) Both man and woman possess the seed of life
(2) There is a place void of stars in the North
(3) Earth is held in place by invisible forces
(4) Taxonomic classification of matter
(5) The Earth is round
(6) Day and night occur simultaneously on Earth
(7) Certain animals carry diseases harmful to man
(8) Early diagnosis of leprosy
(9) Quarantine for disease control
(10) Blood of animals carries diseases
If you answered yes to these, any honest person has no choice, then you are admitting that the Bible is a science book as everyone of these are declared to be scientific facts in the Bible that was written 3500-4000 years before any of these were proven.
here are the references:
(1) Gen. 3:15
(2) Job 26:7
(3) Job 26:7
(4) Gen 1
(5) Isa. 40:22
(6) Luke 17:34
(8) Lev 13
(9) Lev 13
(10) Lev 17
The difference between evolution and The Bible:
The Bible tell you what is going
to happen and gets it right. Evolution tells you what did
happen and gets it wrong!
"My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand."
