    honestly started studying my Bible, searching for answers to doubts instead of holding onto them and hiding from faith behind those.
    converted after learning enough, keep learning more.
    also came to realize all criticism is basically gotchas, willful misinterpretation, and such trickery.
    all you need is a truly intellectually honest dive into it.

          It’s a dealbreaker anon. The creation story is wrong, wildly wrong. If it were true the creation story would be correct and then we’d be able to confirm that later with facts.

            you can.
            you just need to not purposefully misinterpret them, or in other words, not twist the Word to point it against itself.
            you wouldn't be arguing this if you were honest about it.

            And how do you correctly interpret plants existing before the sun

            God made them before it. simple as.
            as you see later in creation, a plant's existence isn't dependent on it being grown either; God makes rain for the plants to grow (Genesis 2:5).

            in what does that conflict? a plant, in and of itself, does not need the sun to exist as a thing; it needs its light to grow.

            Fruit trees and flowers didn’t exist before the sun, sorry.

            because?

            their existence isn't dependent on anything, God made them.
            God then proceeded to make the things necessary for their growth, namely the sun, and the rain.

            let's make it more abstract; plants as first made were the idea, the creation of the conditions for their growth were the actualization of it.
            the idea does not need anything to be a thing in itself.

            The sun is billions of years older than the flowers and fruit trees, the moon as well, and the stars are also billions of years older.
            You subscribe your entire life to a fairy tale.

            you base your view on a flimsier theory of how everything is such and such age.
            they just had to amend the big bang argument with the notion of anti matter, and there isn't a proper explanation; regardless, it's touted as fact.

            I’m not attached to the Big Bang other than a source of the CMB. It’s easily possible that the universe is older and that was just a high energy event.

            You are however attached to flowers and fruit trees and plants coming into existence before the sun moon and stars.
            It’s a dealbreaker

            the ludicrous extrapolations made from it.
            like the idea of evolution, they take the visible and testable notions, and backtrack them into an impossible to verify idea, which is then touted as fact.
            e.g. we see intraspecies micro-"evolution" in bacteria learning to resist antibiotics, etc. we do not see interspecies macro evolution, nor have we been able to recreate it, even with conditions much sharper (artificial selection) than the leniency natural selection would've had.

            no, i'm comparing the two.
            they're doing the same thing in extrapolating evidence into non sequitur theories.

            do people not know textual interpretation anymore?

            So once again, I'd like to ask you what your problem with anti-matter is. What is being extrapolated from anti-matter? Or do you think anti-matter itself is an extrapolation?

            11] Then God said, "Let the earth put forth vegetation: plants yielding seed, and fruit trees of every kind on earth that bear fruit with the seed in it." And it was so.
            [1:12] The earth brought forth vegetation: plants yielding seed of every kind, and trees of every kind bearing fruit with the seed in it. And God saw that it was good.
            [1:13] And there was evening and there was morning, the third day.
            [1:14] And God said, "Let there be lights in the dome of the sky to separate the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years,
            [1:15] and let them be lights in the dome of the sky to give light upon the earth." And it was so.
            [1:16] God made the two great lights - the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night - and the stars.

            oh, and it's not a "oh anon, i can't believe because of [gotcha] and [misinterpretation]", but a problem of the heart.
            you don't want to, because it implies changing your ways.

            it could also just be an issue of unwillingly misunderstanding, and i'd hope so.

            for example, what does the order of creation imply for you to be using it as a question?
            what does the order change? or are you merely finding the order "strange" or somesuch?

            The Bible got the order and timeline wildly wrong.

            in what way?
            it isn't saying plants grew without the sun, merely that they were created.
            also, how could such a "timeline" limit God in the order He did things?

            Lol

            yeah, and?
            plants exist, and haven't grown yet. does not mean they do not exist.

            and how are you so sure of that?
            were you there?
            or are you supposing so based on your imperfect reasoning and opinion?

            Why are most christians raised in christian homes? Why are most muslims raised in muslim homes?

            why are most converts coming to Christianity, and why are the pains of doing so greater in every other religion? (namely, muslim are to kill you on sight, and israelites will disown and ostracize their own, along with having the law weighing on them, with jailing and other such things).

    i would have liked to be atheist, but i don't have the strength for that, no matter which road i took, all roads lead me back to God. So I have to take the next best thing, the thing closest to atheism, a thing God would never agree with, the greatest insult to God: Christianity.

    Raised as really secular Catholic, became agnostic/atheist and then returned to Catholicism after reading learning more about the faith, plus the personal emotional and spiritual confort and security catholicism gave me that I was not able to feel in any other religion or christian denomination

    I was raised Catholic. I eventually became lukewarm to the religion, until I received divine revelation.
