WHY IS GOD STOPPING US? THE TOWER OF BABYLON

Why did God stop the people of Babylon from building their tower? Why didn’t he want people to be able to do everything they wanted? Can we understand God’s plans?

Hypocrisy of the Believers – Student’s Frustration

Some time ago, following a lesson about Lot’s wife, I got a letter from a student who was outraged about the hypocrisy of the believers in the Bible. We had a long discussion about how believers in the Bible, that claim to believe in Love and Compassion, judge others so easily without any compassion at all, as though they were the Inquisition aiming to condemn people and find the most horrendous way to punish them, all in the name of Love.

I could not disagree with her. I had to admit that I, too, see great hypocrisy among believers. And it pains me that judgement is more prevalent than compassion. So I decided to bring her letter here, as is, uncensored. I think we can all learn from it.

Hypocrisy of the believers, who prefer harsh punishment on compassion in case of Lot's wife who had to leave her other children in Sodom.

Science Battling Genesis: How Old is the Universe?

I have been teaching recently the first chapters of Genesis. As expected, these chapters raise huge controversy, more than any other chapter in the Bible. It is easy to understand. After all, while most of the Bible deals with society, morals, or spirituality, the first few chapters of Genesis deal with the creation of the physical world, presenting a very different view than modern science. This is particularly true when questions about the age of the universe are concerned.

NaΓ―ve reading of the Bible will tell us that the world is about 6,000 years old. Science, on the other hand, has a different view. By combining data from different disciplines, scientists believe that the age of the universe is about 13.7 billion years, and the age of earth is about 4.5 billion years.  

This is huge, hardly imaginable, difference. The age of the universe according to science is about a million times larger than the age according to the Bible.  To make these huge numbers easier to comprehend, let’s scale them down. If, for instance, the world according to the Bible was scaled down from 6,000 years to 6 hours (in other words, if the Biblical world was created 6 hours ago) then the world according to science was formed nearly 700 years ago. That was during the Spanish inquisition, before Columbus discovered America.

Of course, there are many religious scientists who are familiar with the two versions of creation and find no contradiction between them. How can they do it?

EQUALITY

Genesis 5 is the third time Genesis tells the story of the creation of man. This version is the least familiar one and least talked about. In this chapter we learn that both man and woman were named Adam, and that they were both created in the image of God, and both were blessed.

Man and Woman God created in the Garden of Eden were both called Adam. We will discuss the equality of creation in Day 5 of 50 Days of Genesis.
