    So if the bible is the inspired word of god and I don't believe it is by any stretch, how did Adam when he was kicked out of the garden of Eden know what a spinning sword was? did Adam invent swords? More bible non sense garbage.

    The comonly used logic is that Moses was inspired when he wrote that passage. He knew what a sword was and thus was able to say that it was a sword.

    That logic still doesn't make sense as this would mean that God invented the sword before the humans did. What would be the purpose of a sword in the spirit world?

    The loving god jehober created not only the first weapon, a simple sword, he created a weapon of mass destruction a flaming spinning blade!

    just saying!

    What people should accept upon the basis of intellectually honesty is the bible has a lot of fictional mythology in it mixed with real occurring events.

    Sola Scriptura is a plague brought on to us by Martin Luther in 1517AD. The book of Genesis is mostly allegorical. Unless you understand Hebrew and ancient Hebrew culture, an accurate reading of Genesis is near impossible.

    7 creative days - allegorical

    Adam & Eve - allegorical (the name "Adam" in Hebrew translates into "Man". Literally "Man and Woman" and not "Adam and Eve".)

    Noah's Flood - a flood did happen, but it was local and not global

    Propably because he had obtained knowledge of good and evil. He was of course not created perfect as JWs say. He was created to fail in the way of experience what life was without God thinking for him. It is a metaphor for what we all go through in the potter's shop 🤭🙁

    Truth, very good but I think the flood is allegorical too

    The oldest sword ever found is about 3300 B.C.

    No flood,even a local one, happened at the time the Bible places the Flood of the Noah Story.

    The Bible is over 90% fiction.

  • JoenB75

    Adam did not write the Bible. The Hebrew word simply means cutting instrument. I doubt God is subject to human development of swords 🤭
