    Well, that question could really open a can of worms!

    It depends on your religion,in part, and also whether or not you believe that the bible is actually the word of God and cannot be wrong.

    Consider how many times the bible has been rewritten, translated, and altered by the ruling religious leaders at the time it was changed. Also consider that much of it was written down from oral stories years after they supposedly happened. That alone should give cause to doubt the "facts" given in the bible.

    Personally, I go with the scientific viewpoint, and not the biblical creation story. There is too much evidence for evolution, in my opinion.

      Yes, Jean you're an evolutionist, I like your  belief 'that the bible is actually the word of God and cannot be wrong" Further on the evolution of man, what is your opinion regarding the many missing linked in Darwin's Theory? Thanks for the input!

      Rodrigo, I think that science still has much to discover about evolution, and the missing links.   I have yet to finish reading Darwin's "The Origin of Species", and am certainly not a scientist, but we still have much to learn.

      Jean, you're correct, but tell me later what's your honest opinion of Darwin's  "Origin of Species"? Thanks for dropping By...

    No. Not even remotely. To the ancient Hebrews, the folk tales that would eventually become the book of Genesis were entirely allegorical. The purpose of this story wasn't to be a 100%-totes-McGoats-accurate account of the history of the world; it was to provide spiritual life lessons in the form of neat stories. It was always Jewish tradition to teach spiritual lessons through parables--where do you think Jesus (or the writers attributing quotes to him) got the idea?

    All the Hebrews knew about the Earth's formation is that God must have done it (because before the scientific method, that's the default answer). That by itself means nothing to the ancient Hebrews, but by attributing the 7-day week, the visible night sky, and gender roles to the story of creation, they became as fundamental as existence itself.

    But nowadays, we can actually observe the universe and how it works, so you'd have to be in all kinds of denial to be a Young Earth Creationist.

      Great answer Zelkiiro! The Universe did not come off of its own, like the Big Bang theory? now Earth is populated by 8B two-legged creatures at the top of the food chain, but how many of our young generations knows or read Genesis? Ty!

      I have read and reread Genesis, and I find it vague and ambiguous while containing only the information that humans of that time period new.

      Great search BradmasterOCcal, I find it also beyond human comprehension, but it says that  it's very fluid for those who are "INSTRUCTED" in other words, they can "SEE"  what's behind the Cloak? I believe it takes time, try again! Ty.

    Probably as true as the stories of Santa Claus, and the Easter Bunny.

    yes they are true.    so sad to see all the athiests answering questions on/about God.    They have no knowledge about that of which they speak and as such their responses are as evil as their beliefs.

      What makes you think that all the respondents are Atheists?   No-one stated what religion they were.   Responses are not evil; they are peoples thoughts on the question asked by the OP.

      ja    tead their post and if you understand scripture at all it is clear.    This is about the bible, Christianity and Jesus   and false doctrine do not belong here

      OK, Jean, Charlie's comment is not damaging everyone is entitled to express his/her opinions as long as within the context of the inquiry? Ty

    Consider the first two verses of the Bible, Genesis 1:1-2. " In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters."

    Liquid water in empty space? There were no stars, no sun. Even with all the stars, the lowest possible temperature in space is -455F/-270C. If this account is true, then the earth was covered with ice. If the days of creation that follow were 24 hour days, everything described in those verses happened on a frozen planet. This includes the separation of "water" (ice) from land, the creation of plants and trees, populating the seas with sea life, the creation of land animals and man. There was no sun until day four of creation. The only way any of this could have happened is if God performed a miracle and melted the ice at some point. This is not stated in the text and it is not science. It is fine to believe this as a matter of faith. But believers should not try to correlate it with science.

    With a miracle working God present, a person can make up any solution they need to the problems of Genesis chapter one. Again, that is fine, but no one can say it is consistent with scientific knowledge and the laws of nature.

    Assuming natural laws have been in effect since the beginning, then no, the biblical account of creation could not have happened. If we open the door to the miraculous, then of course, anything could have been done. But believers should do this honestly. They should only claim miracles that the biblical text describes. They should not make up miracles to explain every problem or inconsistency.
