|k e, no, I'm saying nothing can be seen without light.|
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.
That's 'God' with a capital G.
no, it didn't.
No, what didn't what?
"And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters."
No, it didn't.
You might think it did, but that cuts no ice with me.
Yeah HIR while you now have our undivided tard-tention
You can clear up a few things for me.
1. Those womanly waters g-boy saw his face in....who created those? There is nothing in Genesis saying who created them.
Is that anything to do with the gender of the writers of Genesis? That they were all male and water is feminine?
You can bet if females wrote Genesis, water and the moon would have been created before anything else. Men would have been created to look after goats. All the prior mythologies were from goddess based agrarian cultures, those creation myths involve birth of a different nature. It was only when the semetic cattle herding warrior cults of the levant introduced a suitable god that supported polygamy,rape and pillage as a way of life that we are blessed with its end product the Bible.
How could the writers make the simple mistake that god did everything in the dark? Or was the dark a semiotic reference to before dawn and therefore the void was a claustrophobic nightmare, an existential dilemma.
