Discussion for Genesis 6:12

  • Derek on Genesis 6:12
    Those pre flood were led by sons of gods off spring, very intelligent builders after all their father was a builder and designer. These sons had the intelligence and skills to build and design but it was used to fight each other. They messed with DNA they created virus and strange hybrids that are mentioned in mythology and on the walls of the pyramids. God saw that his creation had become corrupted and sent the flood. But even after that there remained bad strands of DNA in Noah and family which occasionally showed up as giants again. Virus where created and put into animals and where made off limits to man, kosher food only. We eat virus infected meat, or meat which has the potential to become virus ridden very easily. We disobey gods will and every commandment is regularly broken. Though shall not kill, abortions are killing. Though shalt not worship false idols, look in any church and see statues of mary or jesus. The rest are easily identified as being broken. I'm going off track lol. But there is going to be a price to get things back to gods way again.

    Just have a look at what we are doing to God 's creations today and I think you 'll understand that soon enough. Look up BioSteel.... One example, many more can be found when you research how exactly animals immunities are being used to make human vaccines... As in the days of Noah....hmmm
  • Ben on Genesis 6:12
    By "all flesh" does this include the animals as well? How could animals be corrupt?
