The Bible has many ideas which a moments skeptical thought show are absurd.
e.g Genesis 2v19, ” Now the Lord God brought all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air to the man to see what he would name them “.
A BBC news article by Richard Black, 23 August 2011 says there are now estimated to be 8 million species of flora & fauna which could take up to 1000 years to classify.
Animals: 7.77 million (12% described)
Fungi: 0.61 million (7% described)
Plants: 0.30 million (70% described)
Protozoa: 0.04 million (22% described)
Chromists: 0.03 million (50% described)
It would have been really interesting if Adam had used Linnaean taxonomy to make a catalogue of life, complete with accurate drawings, especially if it was 250,000 years ago.
Adam would have needed to do a round the world tour to classify all living things but his alleged 930 years of life still wouldn’t have been long enough.
It is a pity there wasn’t a real god to ensure that there was a complete fossil record of every stage of evolution – so that we could marvel at it. Also you would think a real god would like a comprehensive record of all his works, like the family photo album. A real god would have been proud of the wondrous story of evolution and told of the amazing dinosaurs etc that had gone before – even giving visions of it. How come New Testament authors never had useful visions like that ?
