The bible only lists the fathers , not mothers, the 3 sons may have had many daughters but back in the day they only listed the men! ( as in Jesus, the son of Joseph , I think his genealogy is listed in one of the gospels - cant remember which one! help me Christians!)

People do and believe alot of things, searching for scientific proof of everything will not make everyone happier people and to live more peaceful lives. Science isn't the answer to peace unfortunately.

Or maybe God produced another group of people and didn't tell us about them, or maybe he just created Noah's family to have many more children than what was usual. It doesn't make a difference!!!
Maybe a unicorn pointed his magical horn at a sunflower and it sprouted little babies out of all of its seeds. Who are we to say what could or could t have happened?? We weren't there! None of us can ever know!
The point is it doesn't make a difference to our faith!

Well what I know is that 3 couples cannot repopulate the world.
I prefer logic.

[QUOTE=Lily of the Nile;6415218]
Science is just showing us what is real.
There are numerous scientists that have 'faith' - they just don't take all of the stories in teh bible 'literally' ...which is where this discussion sprang from - literal translations or metaphorical translations.
And you've kind of answered what I was asking aaaages ago -- do people use the Bible and all their belief in it to help them in their life?... do they look to it for a moral compass? (not knowing if things that happened in it ACTUALLY happened or not) ...even knowing that some of the stories in it sound just as plausible as the dung beetle myth. They are just happy to stick with it because it makes them happy? and they should have respect for doing so?
I don't know? sorry - that's what I got out of your post.

I find it interesting that the believers in these types of threads always carry on when they start getting questioned. You all complain about the thead turning sour and that people are rude. I think people are being quite civil in this thread If you can't answer the questions, or if you feel as though people are being rude, then leave? Asking questions isn't an attack.
Anyway...I don't understand how people can genuinely believe the stories in the bible (soooo far fetched and scientifically impossible) OR follow it (it's riddled with atrocities against other humans).

Yes. People should have the right to have beliefs respected.
You just don't have to like or respect that particular belief. Make sense?
I respect your right to believe in evolution. I don't have to like evolution though. I should have my right to my particular faith respected - but I understand not everyone will like it.

And yes some believe in literal translations, some don't. I mean we have so many religions and differences in translations and today we are alot more open, there are people who don't associate themselves with any religion but still believe in God and the bible to help them in their lives. Its all called faith and yes it helps people live their life, it's why science won't give you peace, I know it's not what you said, but faith in God helps people more than science.
