The Days of Creation are not Consecutive Creation Events – 2

The Biblical scholar Meredith Kline, writing over 50 years ago likewise noted that reading the creation days in Gen 1 as a consecutive sequence of events places it in direct conflict with Gen 2: [It] was the work of the “third day” that the waters should be gathered together into seas and that the dry land should appear and be […] 

The Days of Creation are not Consecutive Creation Events – 1

The central core of young earth creationism – the belief that God created the entire universe in six consecutive 24 hour days 6000 years ago is false.

While young earth creationists damn other Christians who accept the antiquity of the Earth as “compromisers”2 well before Darwin published his […] 

The Firmament of Genesis – 2

The references to raqia’ in Ezekiel 1 and Genesis 1 when examined without an apologetic agenda readily show that the ancient Hebrews shared the cosmological view of their neighbours. Ezekiel 1 uses raqia’  to refer to a solid dome, capable of supporting a throne: And there came a voice from above the expanse that was over their heads; whenever they […]
