yes, only Eve was deceived, not Adam. Adam was not deceived. His sin was willful disobedience. Adam followed his woman rather than God (a sin quite common to men, unfortunately). Though Eve was deceived, she also sinned because she doubted God's Word.
Please learn these basic things of the Bible before posting your arrogance.
True Biblical faith believes that Truth is outside of the believer. The Law is transcendent. The Hebrews conquered Canaan because the Caananites transgressed against God's natural law. And when the Hebrews themselves transgressed, they were conquered, and prophets such as Jeremiah acknowledged the justice of God. Ezra and his people repented.
Humanists pass off ancient religions as tools which people used to justify wars and their lifestyles. The Biblical faith doesn't fit that humanist theory.
As Brother Williams pointed out, Paul is not claiming to be "the" universal church father.
In 1 Cor. 4:15 Paul is reminding his readers that there is only one birth to salvation (the rebirth through the Gospel). In the entire section Paul is addressing the problem of divisive teachings in the church. Thus Paul is the only spiritual parent (the evangelist who lead them the salvation). There is no successive rebirths as certain esoteric religious teachers taught.
"'Sometimes as archaeologists we have to say that never happened because there is no historical evidence,' Dr. Hawass said"
okay this person lacks the ability to think logically.
It is common maxim that "absense of evidence is not evidence of absense."
The most "scientific" conclusion that he could make is "I cannot prove with archeology that the Exodus happened."
To say that the Exodus didn't happen because there is no proof is like a person a few hundred years back wrongly concluding that Ninevah did not exist because there was no archaeological proof back then (Ninevah was unearthed in the 19th C. Until then, many believed Ninevah was a mythical city believed to be built by the "mythical" Nimrod).
"it is difficult to conceive of a circumstance which would demand or motivate such action [instantaneous creation of galaxies]"
Well it is also difficult to conceive of a circumstance which would demand or motivate the creation of the galaxies over billions of years.
You appeal to a logical fallacy called the appeal to incredulity. It doesn't matter that you find it difficult to conceive of a reason for something happening. History is not affected by whether or not we know the reason or the motivation behind the event.
In the Ten Commandments God says that he made the Universe in 6 days. God has "many years" or "many days" in his vocabulary yet he specifically said 6 days. In the Creation account God says "it was evening and morning" each time he says a day has occurred. If yom is considered a "period of time" then I figure the evening and morning lasted for eons.
