Well, the fossil record shows the fossilized remains of various animals (including humans) at different geological periods. These geological periods establish a chronology of the earth and its development. It also reveals when certain species appear in this record.

If everything was created at once, how do you explain this?

Yet missing links do not reveal evolution as Darwin describes.  Regarding how to explain it, God created it.  The flood wiped out several species that are no longer in existence.

I'm not talking about missing links. I'm asking how you explain the chronology of the fossil record which shows various geological periods going back billions of years.

Yeah, and the question is do you take the creation story literally or allegorically. Based on scientific evidence, I lean towards the later.

Nothing that the Bible forbids.  I am not to get drunk, but drinking wine and beer is never forbidden in scripture.  So what brews are your favorite and have you seen Devil's Backbone in your neck of the woods yet.  They are now shipping to NC.

Best bar for a hundred miles... I think we had it during American Week, but I can't be sure, I shall ask my good friend the cellar manager (if I can drag him away from cricket conversations - it's Summer) next time I am in.

By the way, the bar team have this:

"Mr Whippy" is the commonest brand name for ice-cream vans here. I think this is a stroke of genius and the lads deserve knighthoods.

My previous link:https://www.nap.edu/read/11876/chapter/2#2

I think this should move the conversation along, if the religious part of the discussion team chooses to look at it.

If you can show me where God created cells that evolved into man then you have proven your claim.  We say we believe and then we tend to not believe God when he claims he created all things and then want to fit evolution in it somehow.  I just do not see it in scripture.  If God made man from dust and woman from man's rib it is obvious they were created as adults.  One then could conclude earth too would appear as aged even though spoken into life.

I just got back home. Saturday night is a bit too much, especially in the nice weather, the young ladies tend to stop the serious conversation at the bar about, y'know, bar stuff. I luuuurve the Cellar. It's not exactly the tourist's idea of a typical English pub, but in spirit and in fact, it is perfectly and exactly that.

There is nothing which has yet been contrived by man, by which so much happiness is produced as by a good tavern or inn

Jesus is so incomprehensible because He is the joining together of all those pagan Gods that came before.  The Hebrews devised of one all powerful God that could do all things.  So instead of having all these various Gods with a restricted focus ala Mars, the God of war, or Venus, the god of Love, the Hebrew God did everything. He is love and He is war at the same time.

This is why the modern Abrahamic God is incomprehensible and confusing.

Of course its confusing, scripture says it's foolishness to the lost.
