Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
I dont' think what you are suggesting is a literal version of the bible. Its a hybrid. For it to still be a literal translation, it would have to actually describe what you just described to me, in the bible.
"And so God made it, and all things that appeared ancient were actually brand new" Or something like that. What you are doing right here is interpreting...and not being literal.
And I don't see how you could explain this whole thing about dinosaurs and humans co-existing with your hybrid theory.
So god made them coexist and we really did coexist, but according to science we did not.
Your explanation neatly explains the age thing, but doesn't well explain the co-existence thing without flat out saying one or the other (bible or science) was wrong.
Mature as in he planted the fossils there just as a fake out? Like we do on pirate day on the beach when we hide buried treasure just to watch our kids dig it up? Like a fun surprise to create the field of archeology?
