Genesis 1, 2, 3

Saturday January 7, 2012, a few minutes before 9 pm.
I decided to read the Bible through for the first time today. I read Genesis 1 and 2. It’s all so confusing.
  • I need to figure out if the order of creation in Genesis 1 is consistent with Science.
  • I also need to find out if Genesis 1 and two are both contradictory creation accounts.

They don’t seem to be but I’m not sure. I started learning the Hebrew alphabet because it seems that all these are thing I have to figure out by myself. There are so many questions floating around my head that if I had to ask them all, I could never get them out let alone find answers. I’m trusting God and taking it one day at a time. Here’s a small list of my questions right now.

  • Cutting off a woman’s hand for grabbing her husband’s private parts in public (accidentally, I suppose). Why?
  •   Parents taking oaths on behalf of their children? How is this fair?
  • It still seems like God both punishes and does not punish children for the sins of their parents – a grievous contradiction.
I’ll add more as I think of them. I’ll cross them out as I find answers. I also took a good look at Richard Dawkins’ website. There wasn’t much on it besides the problem of evil again. They need to find an objective moral standard. Hehe. Also,
  • The punishment God gave for eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil was passed on to generations. Why? It doesn’t sound fair.
