I believe that God created 4.5billion year ‘history’ of the earth as an after-thought to the creation of the first man. That, time being the 4th dimension, past and future are much like the backdrops of space that God created for us to live our earthly lives on. Like distant space, which is there, sort of, but it makes no difference since we’ll never go there, so it’s more of a backdrop, distant past is only there in a theoretical sense that God ‘made this history’ for us.
Some have told me that this makes God a Deceiver and that it is blasphemous and heretical. Is it really heretical? Has the church condemned these ideas? Or is it just a case of scientists trying to make theological pronouncements?
