    You don't see the importance? Think about it this way - if you read a scientific theory about any issue you like, and within one short piece of text you discovered obvious contradictions with readily apparent scientific facts that virtually everybody in the world accepts, AND that the text was inconsistent with itself and contains contradictions, wouldn't this bring into question the validity of the theory?

    Literal interpretationists claim that the creation story as recounted in Genesis is the literal, absolute truth of how the Universe was created. An omnipotent God sat down and over 6 days in a particular order created the main elements of the world and life upon it, and made the rest of the universe in relation to it. They also believe that God directly inspired anywhere from one person to many with this story and directed them to write it down so that the world would know how it was created. There is even a science built around this, called creation science. Given that, it is obviously of vital significance if the text of Genesis is ambiguous in its translation (how long was a day, how many Gods were involved etc), and contains contradictions about the method and order of things.

    If you believe, as many Christians do, that the Bible is simply a series of human-written stories discussing the nature of God, the life of Jesus and supporting an ethical philosophy known as Christianity, obviously these minute details in Genesis are of minimal significance, or none at all. If Creationism is a scientifically valid, inerrant and factual recounting of how the Universe was created, one has to look at the specifics and see how they show up in the real world. If nothing else, if Genesis is right there are a lot of problems with commonly understood scientific theories that must be addressed.

    Its never gonna happen, sadly, but i guess we can hope for it...

    once again your inventing contradictions by not thinking about the context that Genisis 2 was written in.

The NASV claims it means homosexuals, others have said it means male prostitutes, and there are other interpretations as well. In the KJV it is the equally ambiguous "abusers of themselves with mankind". So explain to me, what is the context I am missing from this passage that would suddenly bring clarity to its meaning?

    i didn't say it was easy did i, i dont claim to have all the answers... however i can tell you...

    Homosexuality is a sin, as is all other sex outside of marriage.

    my best estimation is that its talking about sexually immoral practices - no wether thats male prostitution, homosexuality, adultery in general i dont know.

    my bible ha refs to Eph 5:5, Romans 1:26 Matthew 25:35, Job 13:9, Gal 6:7, Jas 1:16, Lev 18:20, Dt 22:22 and Lev 18:22 do some research for yourself

    Go on then. They aren't MY scientific theories of course, but those of the scientific community as a whole, but if you want to debate with me about whether or not the world is flat or if light comes from the sun, go for it.
