“The human body is made up of materials and minerals found on the surface of the ground, and not from the core of the earth.”
While it is true that God created man from the dust of the ground, the phrase “handful of dust” is absent in the verse! It is merely conceived in the minds of these perverts. Be that as it may, the information in the Bible is scientiﬁc! Granting, without accepting, that there is such a thing as a ‘handful of dust’, whose hands will serve as the “measuring hands” for the dust that God will use in the formation of Adam? People who cremate the dead have an idea of how much dust will be left of the human body after cremation. I am sure it is not a sack of dust; but very close to a handful — depending on the hands that holds them. And why is it scientiﬁc? God made
man from the dust; and when his body dies it decomposes and turns again to dust. (Genesis 3:19) “In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.” What are the scientiﬁc proof that man’s body came from the dust of the ground, as the Bible says? The human body is made up of materials and minerals found on the surface of the ground, and not from the core of the earth. Oxygen, being the most abundant element on the earth’s crust or on the ground, makes up 65 percent of the
human body; and Carbon, also abundant on the top soil of the ground, comprises 18 percent, of the body while hydrogen is 10 percent. The 59 elements found in the human body are all found on the earths crust. This is amazing because what the Bible says perfectly match the scientiﬁc composition of a human body. The ignorance of these ‘imaginary people’ in what the Bible says betrays their alleged intelligence and knowledge in science. Of course, the human body is not made up only of dust, but God mixed the dust to water to produce clay.

“The 59 elements found in the human body are all found on the earths crust. This is amazing because what the Bible says perfectly match the scientiﬁc composition of a human body.”
(Job 10:9) “Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay; and wilt thou bring me into dust again?” (Romans 9:20-21) “Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honor, and another unto dishonor?” The mixture is clay, understandably contains more water than dust. Who says that the information in the
Bible is scientiﬁcally nonsense? They are the one’s that are nonsensical, and not the Bible! The exact proportion of the minerals and materials, if maintained, make up a healthy human body. Excesses in these materials will cause disorders and diseases. Excess of aluminum, for example, and iron, will be toxic for the human body. The proportions of the abundance of the 59 elements on the earths crust, is amazingly represented in its presence in the human body. Who says that the Bible is not scientiﬁc? These ‘imaginary and anti-scientiﬁc people’!
REFUTING A NONSENSICAL ALLEGATION ON THE SENSIBLY SCIENTIFIC FILLED SCRIPTURE Again, these haughty blatant liars are misleading people in assuming that God created the universe in six days, 6000 years ago, allegedly, according to the Bible. They call it anti-scientiďŹ c nonsense! Their ignorance of the scriptures and its language is obviously displayed in their presumption that the earth was created 6000 years ago. There are enough scientiďŹ c evidences that will readily prove to an understanding mind that the earth has existed billions of years ago. The presence of diamond on earth and other precious stones and metals like gold and silver proves the antiquity of the earth.
Most diamonds that we see today were formed millions (if not billions) of years ago. Powerful magma eruptions brought the diamonds to the surface, creating kimberlite pipes.
e s o r i a n o . w o r d p r e s s . c o m
“Everyone knows diamonds are hard and beautiful, but did you know a diamond could be the oldest material you might own?”
Carbon Chemistry & Diamond Crystal Structure The word ‘diamond’ derives from Greek adamao, meaning ‘I tame’ or ‘I subdue’ or the related word adamas, which means ‘hardest steel’ or ‘hardest substance’. Everyone knows diamonds are hard and beautiful, but did you know a diamond could be the oldest material you might own? While the rock in which diamonds are found may be 50 to 1,600 million years old, the diamonds themselves are approximately 3.3 billion years old. This discrepancy is because the volcanic magma that solidiﬁes into rock where diamonds are found did not create them, but only transported the diamonds from the Earth’s mantle to the surface. Diamonds also may be formed under the high pressures and temperatures at the site of meteorite impacts. The diamonds formed during an
impact may be relatively ‘young’, but some meteorites contain star dust, debris from the death of a star, which may include diamond crystals. One such meteorite is known to contain tiny diamonds over 5 billion years old. These diamonds are older than our solar system! I understand and can comprehend words in at least four major languages and four native dialects of my country of origin. Of course, I want to learn more, but when I have read the Bible, when I was 17 years of age, I have loved it and have learned its language. I have nothing to boast for, for I am nothing; but my God, whom these people say IMAGINARY, is greater than I can describe. THE LANGUAGE OF THE BIBLE God was frank enough to say that His thinking is far more superior to our thinking. (Isaiah 55:8-9) “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
“Nowhere in the Scriptures can you ﬁnd a verse that the universe or the earth was created only 6000 years ago. I challenge these liars.” As it is very hard for an ordinary person to learn and comprehend the language of a lawyer in the courtroom, it will be very hard also for an ordinary mind as lowly as the earth to comprehend the language of the HIGHEST. A wise reader of the Bible must read it with caution and carefulness, especially, the words which God uttered from His very mouth. There are words in the Bible that were said by humans (believing and non-believing i.e. Psalms 53:1 “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good”), by angels, by demons, and the devil. Sorting all these requires patience and understanding, otherwise, you will be counted as one of those whom the apostle Peter said: perverting or wrestling the word of God.
the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness.”
(2 Peter 3:16-17) “As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other Scriptures, unto their own destruction. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of
Witnesses believe that Adam was created in 4026 B.C. and that human beings have been allotted 6000 years of existence until Armageddon and the beginning of the millennium. This ﬁgure is based on a “creative week” in which each of six days is equal to 1,000 years, with the Sabbath or seventh day being the beginning of the millennium. Simple
This is surely what is being done by these imaginary people! Nowhere in the Scriptures can you ﬁnd a verse that the universe or the earth was created only 6000 years ago. I challenge these liars. Come out with a verse that proves your point, and I guarantee you there is none! Maybe these people were mislead by the belief of the Seventh Day Adventist Church and the Jehovah’s Witnesses that creation took place only 6000 years ago. After all, they do not believe in God, so their presumption that the universe and the earth was created only 6000 years ago must have been picked up by them from the ‘trash’ doctrines of these sects.
e s o r i a n o . w o r d p r e s s . c o m
“An intelligent reader of the Bible, a real Christian, is aware that the account of creation in Genesis does not tell us only of the creation of the earth, but the entire universe.” arithmetic gives 1975 as the year Armageddon would arrive. Franz explained that Armageddon would actually come 6000 years after Eve’s creation. But when 1975 came and went, the Witnesses had to “adjust” their chronology to cover up a failed prediction. They accomplished this by maintaining that no one knew exactly how long after Adam’s creation Eve came on the scene. Franz said that it was months-even years. Hence he was able to “stretch” the 1975 date... Here is a vast span of time — according to Scripture chronology, about 6,000 years since creation — and the people still have not been returned to the garden of Eden...( ref. SEVENT DAY ADVENTIST BELIEVE pp 76-77) If they will deny that they have picked this up from the garbage can, they must have used their own miscalculations to presume that the world or the universe was created only 6000 years ago. THE TRUTH One must notice in the account of creation in Genesis, the mention of the word ‘day’ (yome in Hebrew: From an unused root meaning to 12

The word ‘yome’ in Hebrew may mean a literal day as we know it on earth, or an age. (Genesis 1:3-5) “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the ﬁrst day.”
The ﬁrst day being mentioned here is not an earth day which is literally a 24 hour day! Why? Because earth days came only on the fourth day of creation!
star, is not so LBV 1806-20, million times sun; and is away.
(Genesis 1:14-19) “And God said, Let there be lights in the ﬁrmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the ﬁrmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the ﬁrmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.”
An intelligent reader of the Bible, a real Christian, is aware that the account of creation in Genesis does not tell us only of the creation of the earth, but the entire universe. Deﬁnitely, the ﬁrst day mentioned in verse 3 is not an earth day. An elementary student of astronomy knows that even in our solar system, there are different days. A day in Venus is made up of 243 earth days! And there are more galaxies and, maybe, solar systems in the entire universe much much more than we can imagine. For this reason, it is foolish to conclude that the entire creation took only six earth days and that it happened only 6000 years ago. As mentioned earlier, the term ‘day’ used in Hebrew may mean an age or a vast span of time. In fact, the six days of creation were summed up to a ‘day’.
We must notice in the preceding verses the mention of ‘two great lights’: one, to rule the day; and the other to rule the night. The verse speaks of the sun and the moon. They are two great lights relative to the earth, because if we are to look beyond our solar system, the light of our sun, our
great compared to which could be 40 brighter than our 45,000 light-years
(Genesis 2:4) “These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made e s o r i a n o . w o r d p r e s s . c o m
“The Bible is full of scientiﬁc informations even before they were discovered by man.” the earth and the heavens...” (Emphasis mine) God is inﬁnite. A day is like a thousand years to Him; and a thousand years, a day. There is not much difference between a thousand years and a day for Him. (2 Peter 3:8) “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” The Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Seventh Day Adventists are wrong in interpreting that one day with the Lord is a thousand years for man. It is not in the verse! What the verse says is: that a thousand years and a day are just the same with the Lord. So, it is wrong to conclude that the entire process of creation happened within 6 earth days, or 6000 years only 6000 years ago. Who told these imaginary people that the Bible contains antiscientiﬁc nonsense? It is not the Bible that speaks of nonsense, but YOU! The Bible is full of scientiﬁc informations even before they were
discovered by man. 2,700 years ago, when the book of prophet Isaiah was written, we know that the earth was spherical in shape — or round. (Isaiah 40:22) “It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in...” That it is hanging on nothing.... (Job 26:7) “He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.” That it has exact measurement! (Job 38:4-5) “Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? And many informations.
God Will Not Demand Death of Innocent People in the Bible Nowhere in the Bible can you ﬁnd a verse where God demand the death of innocent people. Maybe, he who asks such question is not innocent, but ignorant of the Bible. There is a great difference between innocent and ignorant, and these people who malign God can not say that they are innocent because they intentionally mislead people by their questions. They cited a verse in Exodus 35:2, which say: “Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you a holy day, a sabbath of rest to the LORD: whosoever doeth work therein shall be put to death.” e s o r i a n o . w o r d p r e s s . c o m
“In the spirit of justice and fairness, they must question everybody that imposes the death penalty, but their target is God who, unlike sinful human beings, has the power and authority to impose it because He is the Creator of life.” Before we go to the Biblical aspect (and this is for my readers, and not for these people), let us ﬁrst delve on something which is the only language they know. They do not question authorities in their land when they impose death penalty on law-breakers. I have not found any argument in their website questioning the imposition of death penalty which is being carried out by most countries of the world, so we can safely conclude that they are not against death penalty when it is imposed by anybody other than God. In the spirit of justice and fairness, they must question everybody that imposes the death penalty, but their target is God who, unlike sinful human beings, has the power and authority to impose it because He is the Creator of life. (Acts 17:28) “For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.” The poets of Athens and Greece are smarter than these people because they believe that there is a reason for our existence; and there must also be a reason for the imposition of death. 16
(Romans 6:23) “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” The verse implies that death is imposed because of sin; and a just God will not punish innocent people. Sin is transgression of the law. (1 John 3:4) “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.” The law on keeping the Sabbath is the fourth of the Ten Commandments. This is a holy day between the Lord and His people, Israel. The beneﬁciary of this law is the people themselves. No human being after four hundred years of labor, like what happened to them in Egypt, in his proper sense will reject a day of rest. It is for your beneﬁt to take a rest, and this is scientiﬁc. The beneﬁts of resting are huge. A day or two off each week is essential to allow muscles, tendons and ligaments the time to repair themselves. Additionally, for those attempting to increase
muscle mass, the old saying that growth occurs during down time, not during workouts, holds true... Anybody who refuses to rest, especially so if it is a transgression to a very important commandment intended for his own beneﬁt is completely abnormal and out of his mind. He deserves to die and is not innocent! (Deuteronomy 21:18-21) “If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them: Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place; And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.” These were the verses cited by these detractors of the Lord; and claim that God demands the
death of innocent teenagers! Not only misleading people thru their website, but propagating their invented lies, these imaginary people are blatant liars and deceivers! Nowhere in the verses cited can you ﬁnd that these are innocent teenagers! They are stubborn, rebellious, gluttons, and drunkards. Rebellious to God and their parents, they are not innocent and they deserve to die, after rejecting their chance for renewal by not listening to the voices of their father and mother. To say that these are innocent teenagers denotes what kind of a person who sympathizes with them, and blames the just God of Christians. Perhaps, they are rearing their children in such manner that they will someday be stubborn, rebellious, gluttons, and drunkards. (1 Timothy 5:8) “But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an inﬁdel.” Another blatant lie is their comment on Leviticus 20:13, saying that God demands the death of homosexuals. THE VERSE e s o r i a n o . w o r d p r e s s . c o m
DOES NOT MENTION INNOCENT HOMOSEXUALS! The verse tells us, and I quote: “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” Note: That the subject is a man that lieth with a woman, and afterwards, lieth also with a man. Homosexuals do not lie with women! These are men who, because of exceeding lust after lying with a woman, have pleasure also in men. This was clariﬁed by the apostle Paul in Romans 1:27. “And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.” Innocent homosexuals are given by God the chance to inherit the kingdom of God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-11) “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be 18
not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind , nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctiﬁed, but ye are justiﬁed in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” Note that some members of the ﬁrst century Christian church at Corinth are effeminate or homosexuals, but they were washed, sanctiﬁed, and justiﬁed! Maybe these imaginary people who say that God is imaginary hates God; and they want to convince homosexuals to hate God also! Another verse they used to make a mockery of God’s justice is on Deuteronomy 22:13-21, which states: “If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her , And give occasions of speech against her, and bring up an evil name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her,
“Maybe these imaginary people who say that God is imaginary hates God; and they want to convince homosexuals to hate God also!” I found her not a maid: Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel’s virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate: And the damsel’s father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her; And, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter’s virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city. And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him; And they shall amerce him in a hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days. But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father’s house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you.”
Note that death in the preceding verses is imposed not because the damsel or lady is not virgin. It is imposed because she has done folly, fooling her father, mother, the supposed to be groom, and the elders of Israel, and mocking God’s commandment that protects the right and dignity of a starting family. The lady commanded by God to be stoned to death is NOT innocent. Therefore, it is not true that God demands the death of so many innocent people, as they claim; but God is a God of justice, fairness, equity, and good morals, which these immoral and imaginary people hate. I know after reading this, these imaginary people will again invent defamatory things against me and my God, but I believe and I pray that my readers be enlightened with this glaring light from God’s word. Praise be unto HIM! Amen.
