Your wrong about so many things here, lets discuss a small percentage of how wrong you are.
One idea that is prevalent through the entire creation account
creation myth. That’s not an insult, we’re literally talking about a myth. By definition, the story of creation in the Bible is classified as myth. Also, it’s not true and you’d have to be stupid to believe it is. That’s an insult.
is the idea of separation. Separating light from darkness, earth from sky, land from sea,
Land and sea aren’t separate.
night from day,
Only separate in so much as its how we’re marking time,
humans from animals,
Not at all separate, that’s like saying you’re separating orange from colors.
and man from woman.
Also not separate. Culturally you may have dreamed up some separation, but since this post is about science, than scientifically speaking, the difference between a man and a woman is about as great as the difference between a male and female salamander. Might matter to the salamander, but you wouldn’t say the male and female salamander are separate. Tell you this much: If men and women were ‘separate,’ we wouldn’t do too well as a species.
It’s the idea of creating order as much as creating in general.
Why would a god need a way to create order? Like, if a god could just create night and day, why couldn’t he just create order? Why would he need to create something that makes order? It’s like saying if i had unlimited powers and I wanted a burrito I could make a cow appear and then milk the cow and process the milk to into sour cream and then kill the cow and grind and cook its meat and refry some beans and wish for some tomato seeds to plant tomatoes to begin the process of making my own salsa, or, I just make a fucking burrito appear fully formed.
This was something the ancients
the ancients!? Ha, what a silly, romanticized phrase for cavemen.
understood as being a necessary part of creation.
You mean, it worked well for their plot? You see, the ancients didn’t have a great expanse of knowledge or access to the kinds of tools for understanding the natural world we have today. They didn’t have very long lifespans. It was like a planet run by the stupidest, most frightened, anxious teenagers ever. Defensive, immature and confused, they made up stories. Stories were interesting, especially fantastic ones, people listen to stories and people who tell stories like to be listened to. So fantastic stories were made up. When people asked ‘why does the sun circle the sky?’ Story tellers made up different stories. Gods in chariots, giant eyes, whatever whatever, one of them happened to be this particularly refined Jewish myth. That’s not understanding. That’s just compelling storytelling.
I think it’s really cool that our modern science has confirmed this.
Well, take your jacket off, son, because it’s about to get a little less cool in here: Modern science hasn’t confirmed jackshit of what you’re talking about.
Some of our biggest questions and unknowns about the start of the universe deal with separations. For our universe to take form matter had to separate from energy.
eh….does not compute….
Matter had to separate from antimatter.
Dude, you don’t know what antimatter is. I don’t know what antimatter is. Like, no one really knows enough about antimatter, you probably should just back off talking about it until you have like a billion degrees in theoretical physics, and if you had those degrees, you’d know not to talk about antimatter like you know what you’re talking about, cause you don’t.
The four fundamental forces
John, Paul, George and Ringo?
all had to be separated. Space and time had to be separated.
Space and time are not exactly “separated.”
How this all happened are the questions at the cutting edge of physics and astronomy, as they well should be. A grand unification theory would launch science into an entirely different place.
But I do think it’s pretty cool that theologians have had the answer below all the physicists answers for 5000 years.
Yeah, too bad it’s a bullshit answer. The theologians answer is just to shrug and say “magic man did it.” That’s not answer, that’s a hypothesis, and a silly one with no justification.
