    Creation of the world

    I just wanted to ask you if you believe that God has created the world in seven days?

    No. I don't. but I'm not religious. Most religious people should.

    "“Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true.” .”

    Stop taking things so literally. Your priest sounds like a moron. What the hell were 7 days back then? In the times it was written, the idea of tens of thousands of years is not even fathomable, so people relate what they see into what they can explain.

    Example: bring a person from the 1300's-1700's and show them a jet, they're probably call it a giant creature as hard as stone with people in it's belly. Take that literally and you have a fucking dragon.

    Oh really.
    Elaborate, without​ making any references to the bible.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    Well two things I want to say.
    1. I don't believe it's a sin to have doubts about the bible. In fact many christian pastors claim to have greater faith through doubting the bible then re-affirming their faith. If he says it again: please ask him the verse and context, because that is more of a "threat" than an informational piece.
    -It's like a Muslim going "it's a sin to doubt the quran" so that you feel guilty. It's not informing you what sins are, it's threatening you.

    2. The vast majority of christians simply no longer believe it happened in seven literal days. There is a bunch of things in the bible that have incorrect measurements.(example: noah's arc) Also there is a bunch of contradictory measurements(because for some reason repetition is needed in the bible, idk why).
    It's not doubting the bible, it's just not taking everything for a literal translation.

    You have any questions on it, feel free to ask.

    Darwins' theory isn't the exact theory of evolution to date, it is the start though. I'm pretty sure we can answer the general questions you have on christianity or evolution, from an informational standpoint.

    Circular reasoning explains why the priest is stupidly wrong

    Except Darwin's theory never states that we evolved from monkeys.
