QUOTE: “Adam and Eve and all forms of life, both animal and plant, were created in immortality; that is, when first placed on this earth, all forms of life were in a state of immortality. There was no death in the world; death entered after the fall.” -Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, p. 252. [source]
COMMENTARY: So Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden roughly 6,000 years ago? And it takes millions of years for dead plants and animals to turn into oil? I don’t think your car runs on faith. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
