Comment on Further definition on tap for Adventist fundamental belief on creation by Ron Stone M.D..
BobRyan: Babylonians, egyptians, Chinese — all came from Noah in the world wide flood that happened about 4500 years ago. (8 people got off the boat, not a million and 8).Moses wrote Genesis about 1000 years after the flood.It is certainly possible that the Chinese and the Babylonians were also writing at that time – although for the longest time skeptics kept complaining about the bible record because they insisted that nobody was able to write at the time Moses lived.in Christ,Bob
Exactly Bob. The 7 day week has no “objective” reason (compared to months, years, etc.)for existence.
But, virtually all mankind accepts it and uses it. A fluke?! I don’t think so.

It is not an “accident” that almost all cultures have a story about a flood.The symbol for flood in the ancient Chinese script is the pictogram of a boat and 8 people.in Christ,Bob
Very true, Bob. This certainly is some kind of “evidence” that there was some “great flood” as the Bible describes.
Who actually “wrote” or descibed it first is not of any value as to its veracity, as maybe we haven’t yet found the “oldest” version yet.
Ken: Re David’s Quote”The biblical origin of the 7-day week was not lost on atheistic regimes such as the French revolutionaries and the Soviets, and they tried to substitute different cycles.”Hi DavidThanks for your comments.As I previously stated, my brief reading indicates that the Bible was not the original source of the 7 day week, but rather it was being used by the Sumerians and Babylonians prior to the rise of the Hebrew civilization. Am I wrong on this point?Your agnostic friendKen
I’ve read a number of sources on the “origin” of the 7 day weekly cycle, and none claim to actually know how it got started.
The Bible does state how, so perhaps it is correct?

Faith: Prof Kent:How do you figure that this site keeps biology profs with integrity out of LSU? Any professor that is following the Bible, supporting creation, and the SDA church has nothing to hide and nothing to fear.When you say “quality” applicants, just how do you judge their credentials?As far as I am concerned, it is far more important that these professors have a firm grasp on the teachings of creation and the teachings of the Bible than any credentials the world can offer. If that had been the criteria used as a guideline for hiring, we wouldn’t be in this mess now. And that goes for all our SDA institutions.
I agree, Faith. However, the type of leadership (Guy,Geraty,and Wisbey)LSU has had over the past two decades shows why we have evolutionists teaching “evolution as fact” at LSU and those supporting any type of creationism being intimidated, both students, and I would suspect faculty as well.
Does the LSU Board even care about this deterioration in our biblical beliefs. Well, their inaction, ineptitude, and apathy in finding any solutions tell me they don’t, at least the majority who control the Board.

BTW, If you’re a beer or ale drinker, the best are the “darker” and more “robust” varieties, as these have more antioxidants and phytochemical.
Or, you could just eat some oatmeal, barley, or similar whole grain!
I have much more knowledge of PUC, and it has as many or more problems as LSU, although these have been, so far, ignored by most. PUC thrives on its “high ratings” from U.S. News and World Report, etc. But, it would get much lower ratings if someone knowledgeable from an SDA rating agency actually did a thorough investigation of the school.
Adventist kid: @Ron Stone M.D.:Continue to believe that if you want. Not a scientific sample to say the least, but I just asked roughly 80 high school graduates from this year whether they chose which school they were going to or if their parents did. I didn’t even get ten who said their parents limited their choices or prevented them from going to their first choice.
I’ll continue to believe what I actually see and hear, not some biased opinion from you.
Do you know this or just a guess? I certainly hope they’re gone from LSU completely!
