The main thing that is bothering me about what you are saying in regards to early humans was that they "were like small popluations within themselves" and "God stored within them all kinds of diverse traits." It seems to me that all of our evidence that I know of so far suggests that this is just not possible. Can clarify this in such a way as to explain how this special DNA worked in regards to holding extra traits?
This next question is asked just from a literary viewpoint: Though Genesis says "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." I see no reason at all to interpret that as nothing at all existing before either. This beginning isn't necessarily the beginning of EVERYTHING. What do you think of this? Also can you consider that the language of the time did not allow for a proper explanation of multiple start systems and as such did not even attempt to describe a creation of the universe?
My comment of "populations within themselves" is a little misleading, by it I mean a man and a woman in those days had multiple children because their days were long on the earth. So let's do some math here. Say Adam and Eve had 100 children. (50 sons and 50 daughters). In essence Adam and Eve represents in this case 100 people, and that was part of my angle about them being small populations within themselves. Now let's say those hundred children paired up (50 pairs), and each pair produced another hundred. Now you have 5,102 people on the earth. This is just using a hundred children as a base. I would probably say that Adam had more than one hundred, and so forth.
The other part about my statement concerning Adam and Eve being populations within themselves, and this gets tricky and of course I have no evidence for it, is they were specially created as the first human beings. Common descent says that everything we are was passed down through our ancestors, going back to the first microbe life. Yet if God created us, and we evolved from Adam, God created all the information within Adam because he had no ancestor. Also we know Adam was created to live forever, so his DNA was godlike. Even after the fall, that DNA slowly began to decline. After the flood judgement, it rapidly declined to where now people are only living 70 to 80 years on average. If we had relations with very close relatives, the children won't survive after the second or third generation. So many will ask me what godlike DNA like, and what evidence suggests the things I'm saying? Well, I'm still studying these things out. Einstein didn't come up with his theories in a day did he, nor did the experimentation came about to help prove his theories the next day? It involved years of work, and his work was built upon generations of scientific study before him. (Not that I'm comparing myself to Einstein, just saying) I will say I'm coming along and along.
are you arguing that err there were multiple copies of genes within a single individual in that time, Matthias? I am trying to understand what you mean by "God stored within them all kinds of diverse traits."
Hopefully I answered your question in the post above. I'm still a work in progress.
Seriously, it all boils down to one very simple thing for me....
Evidence or GTFO.
Patience my good friend. Evidence like this needs to be unraveled. Even if the world was once perfect, how can I find evidence of it in a now imperfect world? Behold, everywhere I look I see corruption. So I have to bring this information out, whereas observational science looks on the surface.
and theres where the merry go around goes. faith and evidence and the ying and yang of that and searching and not seeing everything laid out and spelled out enough for the evidence one might want. thus, faith comes into play.
Faith isn't about believing in something you can't prove exist. Faith simply means trusting in something or someone you know exist. In the ability of that someone or something. Faith produces the evidence because you know the truth.
