2328 Reasons Christianity is false

You have no evidence for that. Every culture on the planet has their creation myths. It's how humans 2500 years ago made sense of what they saw. It's bygone era.
The texts which were written, assembled and edited, and eventually non-unanimously voted into a canon of scripture were the product of the cultures which produced them. They were humans...no different that the humans who created the myths in other cultures. Your texts are not special. They have no knowledge in them that every other culture of the day had. Your problem is you cannot see them for their literary value and for what they can tell us of the cultures that produced them as you are too busy taking the myths literally. It's a very basic mistake made by those who have no real knowledge or schooling of the literature of the ancient Near East.

Actually, (if you have actually ever read Genesis), it begins by saying that in the beginning the God created the heavens and the earth. They knew nothing about solar systems or galaxies or basically anything.
That was hardly the order anything happened cosmologically speaking. The writers/editors knew nothing more than anyone else at the time. We all know what the Hebrew cosmology looked like. Trying to create a fake concordance with what science knows today is a dishonest and ignorant enterprise.
