    Wow!!! I didn't think anyone was that gullible.

    You've never gone to a magic show, have you?

    Humans, of course. If someone writes a story to be read by humans, on Earth, and the story referred to a day as a morning and an evening, what else would that human assume other than it was a normal day on Earth?

    Do you think that if the Big Bang occurred, there must be a mechanism that caused it?

    It’s a scripture, not a story.
    God is not a human being, so it has to be from the perspective of God.
    God’s day is different from a human day.

    Most likely yes.

    Is it possible that the Big Bang was the cause of itself?

    Anything is possible. It's just very, very unlikely.

    Scriptures was written by men, do you deny this?
    Scriptures was written for men, do you deny this?
    A morning and an evening is a day, do you deny this?

    If so, what is a morning and an evening?

    Sure. Again, anything is possible. It's possible you are just a simulation running on an Elon Musk computer. (In which case Musk is your God.) Odds are against it, though.

    Then it should be no trouble.
    Unfortunately I didn’t get the point.

    Do you think a transcendental agency, is the most plausible explanation?
