  2. Does Genesis 1 get the order of events wrong?
  3. Is the creation account in Genesis history or poetry?

  1. It’s amazing how the secular scientific community has managed to intimidate Christians into abandoning Biblical Truth and compromising God’s Word.
    Both Creation Scientist and Secular Scientist have the exact same data at hand. It is a person’s world view that shapes their interpretation of the data and there is a much better fit for the Biblical young earth than their is for billions of years.
    Let me ask; How long did it take the Creator of the universe to turn water to wine? How long did it take Him to create fully mature ready to eat fish? How long did it take Him to make baked bread?
    How long did it take Him to form eyes from the dust of the earth for a man born without? And how long did it take Him to bring forth life from a lifeless tomb?
    Billions of years? Millions? He Spoke and it was.
    Genesis does not read like poetry; it reads like history giving details in man’s lineage and events that took place that the data we have today confirms.
    Spend some time studying the results of the Genome Project… fascinating; God has written a confirmation of His Word into our very genes.
    One last note… God said let there be light and it was. Isn’t it interesting that the writer of Genesis would write about light being an independent thing? Even Dr Rana and Dr Ross were unable to separate the idea of light from a light source.
    If I shine a flashlight into the sky I send photons into space that continue long after I turn off the source and there is no difference between the photons I sent and the ones sent by the stars.
    Day 1, God Himself was the source of light; He spoke and it was.
    In Revelation we read “There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.” Revelation 22:5
    Don’t shorten the Arm of the Lord just because you get intimidated by unbelievers.
