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
