- Mar 1, 2009Perhaps these are not so much conflicting, as just various ways
of describing a thing, that has ALL these features.
God used to walk with Adam and Eve "in the cool of the evening"
in the Garden before The Fall. And besides which, breakfast is
the most important meal of the day. Jump starts your system.
So such timing is not unreasonable besides which, it also would
be a case in point kind of message to not delay when God
gives you a break.
That alignment with things of nature is not necessarily non
supernatural, for God made nature, and seems to like to work
with processes and not just kablamo there it is, though can and
will do that also.
It might also be a message to consider, that everything they
were used to hearing connected to paganism, is in fact
properly belonging to YHVH the true Creator and maintainer.
But that on one day only it would last, so that no work need
be done on The Sabbath, and that all other days nothing would
survive to the next day as edible, shows it was supernatural.
And you don't hear of such things going on now from travellers
and bedouin, do you? Perhaps there is some kind of natural
thing, that can be found in small amounts there, on a morning
timing, some times of year, that was taken by God and
made into a huge and modified version of itself, not unlike the
use of the loaves and fishes as templates to make thousands
more loaves and fishes when Jesus Christ fed the multitudes.
If so, it certainly isn't doing this year in, year out, because
this lasted 40 years.
Moses had been in the wilderness before, when he fled to
Midian from having killed the Egyptian, and he was taken by
surprise by all this.
So it wasn't normal.

There are many - we could call them "conflicting" - descriptions of manna
in the bible. No doubt this is due to the fact that numerous people are
Just take "hoarfrost" alone.. that could definitely be mushroom mycelium.
Exodus connects manna to the dew (hmmm.. a natural phenomena) and apparently
it had to be collected before the sun melted it away. If it was a
"supernatural" divine gift then why didn't it just sit there until it was
gathered? Coincidentally, God seems to have aligned "his" timing with the
daily dewfall and evapration inherent in nature - not to mention
decomposition (the previous day's harvest would go bad.. except on Fridays -
