OK - so this woman on one of my other forums had her car leafleted by a Christian group and she got mad, well, I private messaged her and we started talking (she is Pagan) Well, I really have made HUGE headway with her, and honestly I’m proud of myself
But, she asks REALLY good questions, and while I should probably ask this on the apologist section, you guys have always helped me out - so what do you think:
This is what she wrote:
*Actually my question was why weren’t the first people Jewish, as I know Christ didn’t come till later (if you believe what the bible says). And you didn’t really answer me. Adam knew god, Eve knew god. Why would the first men have not known god? And for that matter how are we really supposed to believe that two people created all of the people in the world? Do you know what happens when cousins have kids together? Look at some of the royal families, their bloodlines are sooo tied up it is scary, and as a result they had all kinds of health and mental problems. No it still doesn’t work. **God makes people, talks to them everyday, and they look like us, but then suddenly there is Cromagnan man, and he doesn’t know anything about god? ** IT doesn’t add up. Then there is Noah and suddenly again the whole world is started over from one family line? As are all of the animals? And for a god who does nothing in present day he sure was active (and cruel) in the begining. Either the bible is literal fact or it isn’t. *
I"m sorry but I think this is a great question, and wanted to know how you guys would answer it? Oh, and please dont say I’m not supposed to say that there were not cromagnan men, because her argument is still valid in the sense she will say well, what about Ancient romans who believed in Zues, etc. Her argument is still functional without that.
