Did you pass over the biblical mentions too?
The Gods weren't hiding themselves from our forefathers. They grew crops and tamed animals. The publication of Enoch defined it. In a few locations within the Bible, the ships have been defined as relocating stars. thankfully, we now be aware of that stars doesn't circulate and forestall as was once described.
All the above have been technology and expertise. no longer religion. in the event that they moved by way of airships, could that lead them to omnipresent or omniscience? technological know-how and expertise- certain yet omnipresence-- the standard of being everywhere-- isn't really one in all their features. We as people assigned these features to the "Gods"
Some humans think that the Earth is 4.6 billion years by way of facts. a few think the earth is 6000 years by means of faith.
One of the explanations for this paintings is to aid channel a few Bible readers and readers of books of different spiritual doctrines towards good judgment and cause. in truth that the majority readers don't know how and what to think, in order that they think by means of religion. those historic texts have been produced via royal scribes and spiritual leaders in robust fiscal and political positions and settings. They wrote to recommend and make valid, specific political or spiritual rules and reforms to yield wanted doctrines and ideologies. Like we observed within the interpretation of bankruptcy 10 of the booklet of Ezekiel, even the main versed in Bible narratives rarely comprehend the booklet. This author is a robust believer in freewill with the certainty that guy will consistently locate the intelligence to achieve no matter what he units his brain to complete. If left by myself, a typical guy can learn the bible and interpret it for self simply because guy could make selection for self. yet that straightforward job can have been taken away and changed via a compelled "free will" of religion. there are many illogical considering by way of faith. we all know in keeping with non secular books that: This/These God(s) created every little thing. Evil is a subset of every little thing. for this reason God created evil. whilst it turns into completely most unlikely to logically clarify any given occasion, the bible readers, inn to numerous the right way to clarify away illogical texts. Can non secular dogma and its inherent confusion live to tell the tale within the face of technological know-how and good judgment, or is it doomed to the surfacing proof revealing the workings of nature and or the Almighty common writer whose identify we don't be aware of? analyzing during the Bible and significantly examining and plotting and connecting the dots, i've got come to have exposures and understandings for the Bible's doubtless surprising inconsistencies and contradictions. those, between others assisted in shaping the perspective expressed during this book.
