I have stated what i think. I got to say, i feel bad. My mind works very much like yours and i often find the standard answers leaving much to be desired. After rereading the posts, it kind of seems like everybody is harshing on you myself included although i doubt that is what anyone is trying to do. I don't really want to contribute to that feeling since i certainly know how frustrating it is. And i am not trying to. I guess what i would say is these are the conclusions i have come to. Maybe yours will be different and i am excited to hear what they are! It certainly is kind of a stretch for me to say that the curse or "original sin" led to genetic abnormalities. It is what i think, don't get me wrong. But it is a stretch. Part of the stretch is that we are trying to find things that are unrelated to the context in a very big way! I do it all the time though. I have questions just as you do and the answers are not specifically or nesessarily there. It is really strange how often we want to make the bible say things that it is not talking about. I have found lately that just believing what it is for sure talking about is the best first step on the journey. Hope this helps and i hope we didn't all kill your thought process or your curiosity. I seriously do like hearing your and other peoples opinions, it is why i am on here in the first place!
