Left's Newest Inquisition: Deny Your God or Be Declared Unfit

I'm offended at how secularists paint all Christians as "creationists". It's a reflection of their ignorance and bigotry. Genesis 1:1 says, In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. That happened before the first day mentioned at verse 5. So, the universe and the earth were already there for an untold number of years. And, of course, a day to an eternal God is not limited to an earthly 24 hours. That GQ interviewer is arrogant. So, he knows it all? Why? Because he's got a cell phone and can travel by plane?

Sorry, Gato, but you have it all wrong. When "the heavens" is referenced that means all of creation that can be seen in the sky and beyond. The universe did not exist before God created it. Genesis 1:17 states clearly that God created the stars and set them in the firmament, the firmament being the void that existed before the creation. If, as you say, the universe existed before the creation, then wouldn't the stars have already have been there?

In verse 1, God created the universe including the earth. Then, starting from the first day, he began preparing it for mankind. So, to a human standing on earth, the stars became visible to him on the fourth day. But the stars were already there. Otherwise, where did the light come from on the first day? And, where did the vegetation get their light on the third? But, my larger point is the bigotry and ignorance behind the GQ question.

Let the Blood Games continue.

Only weeks after election 2012 and years before election 2016, in a routine interview, a glossy pop magazine popped Florida Senator Marco Rubio with an oddball question: How old do you think the earth is? Rubio responded a bit clumsily and noncommittally. Smelling blood and opportunity, the wolf pack bared fangs and chased.

Their game is either to force Rubio to affirm a personal belief the earth is 4.5 billion years old—disturbing some of his religious supporters--or to mock and stigmatize him and others who could harbor any delusional...
