What is presumptuous is the "righteous" tone that you impose. Stop it please.

As to proving you wrong, does one have to prove every idea that is put
before one wrong, no matter what its foundation is or is not? You haven't
taken the time to give any substance to your claims. So, there is nothing
to prove wrong or right. I have seen people on this list working to get at
what a text means, not bringing their ideas to the text and making them fit.

The tone is still all wrong. You have said very little that fits into the
category of provable things. Your belief that the world became without form
and void is based on the belief in creatio ex nihilo, ie a belief based on
a belief. We're a long way from facts.

Half a fact. And what seems to be a load of irrelevance from the NT. How
did the ancients understand the text?

You can argue with them! "became"? I think you should attempt to prove it,
if proving things is so important to you.

Tone. You're still having problems!


Cheers,
