Long Creation Days Apologetics Class Lesson – 11 February, 2018 – Kevin Bronson
Creation Miracles – Hugh Ross Lecture
How do we reconcile Genesis 1 with findings of Natural Science?
Genesis 1:1 No Hebrew word for “universe”. Old Testament uses “heavens and earth”
Space-time did not exist until Genesis 1.
Space-time theorem (Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity). If space-time had a beginning, then there must be an outside Agent that created space-time/everything.
Genesis 1:2 Frame of reference changes to surface of the waters
Job 37:9. Thick clouds, dark earth. Ps 104 waters over the earth. Global sea.
Yom, Hebrew, no word for age for epoch.
Creation Day One: Light gets through the atmosphere
Creation Day Two: Water above and below. Water cycle begins. Job 37
Creation Day Three: Land forms. Plate tectonics. Plants appear
Creation Day Four: More atmospheric clearing. Moon, sun and stars visible. Oxygenation by plants.
Creation Day Five: Small seas animals appear. Cambrian explosion.
Creation Day Six:
Creation of birds and mammals. Soulish creatures.
Long legged mammals – easy to tame
Long legged mammals – hard to tame
Urbanization increases à Atheism increases
God creates human beings. The only spiritual beings
