This important series of Bible Class studies deals with the controversy between the Biblical revelation of the origin of the Universe, and the secular humanist and atheistic view,as well as examining some quasi-religious ideas that abound today, i.e. Evolution and its twin "Theistic Evolution", and the popular "gap theory".
A day is an evening and a morning I told my niece, a ph.D. in Biology from Stanford that if she would read just the first chapter of the Bible from a scientific point of view, I would read a book by a so-called Christian Evolutionist/Scientist. God knew that man would someday argue about a day being an eon or an era. In the day or days of Noah means an era, like we say, "Back in the day", meaning "old school", when we were little kids. Noah's Ark was a cute little story. Someday, all men will be able to trace their dnA and find out which one of Noah's three sons was their direct ancestor. Many Christians have skipped over the part that says the world was watered with a mist. It's important to read the part of Genesis that says PLAINLY and CLEARLY that the deluge of water came from beneath the surface of the earth. The continents were smaller. Land masses turned completely sideways or flipped. The earth was mostly tropical. That's why evidence of warm climate plants are found in Alaska. The more we learn, the more that the Bible is proven from a scientific point of view. Isn't that wonderful? - It's a huge thing to start a conversation with, "There was no rain before Noah started entering the ark." Many people will say, "What?" I had to find a new church because a young pastor preached "God directed evolution."
