The purpose of this lesson is to clarify what the Bible teaches about our God and His creation, as well as the scientific side of the search for truths of our origins. The Bible is truth, and science searches for truth, so there should be no contradictions. We should always have justification for what we believe.
1 Pet 3:15  But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:  16 ¶  Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.

So let’s begin with the first verse of the Bible:
1 ¶  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

This verse is filled with information. The study of the Hebrew words and their meaning has continued since Moses wrote them down as directed by God, the eternal One, who was, is, and is to come. But, for now, look; for science has placed all that we know into time, space, and matter. Time=the beginning…the start of time, Space=heaven, Matter=earth; all put forth by God.

There are different concepts today about the beginning that range from a universe formed by chance without intelligence (an expansion of the theory of evolution by Charles Darwin) to that of strict creationists that believe that the universe was created by God in 6 days, 6000 years ago. In this study I will show by scripture, science, and evidence that the original creation was by God and before the 6 days of Genesis.

**I will be quoting from different resources during this study:

In Genesis 1:1 God is the Hebrew Elohiym which is a plural term. God is in 3 persons. In verse 2 we see the Spirit of God, and in verse 3 we see the Word of God. This mark of 3 is upon everything. Christians understand that God is triune, or the Trinity.

Space is height, width, and depth.
Matter is solid, liquid, and gas…all composed of atoms that are: protons, neutrons, and electrons.
Time is past, present, and future.

Other Creation Scriptures

Ps 33:5  He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.
6  By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
7  He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses.

Ps 33:18  That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.

Isa 40:12 ¶  Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?
13  Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counsellor hath taught him?
14  With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding?

Ps 102:25  Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.
26  They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:
27  But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.

There is a growing group of several hundred scientists that are rejecting the evolutionary principle because it does not collaborate with the evidence discovered. They are not necessarily religious but believe that the discoveries of science support intelligent design over that of chance. Some of the points elaborated are that:

·         The earth is exactly within the small habitable orbit distance from the sun; closer it would burn, further it would freeze
·         The solar system is exactly in the small habitable orbit in the galaxy
·         The sun is exactly the right size for us to receive heat, light, and life giving energy
·         The tilt of the earth’s axis and orbit are exactly right for our seasons and times
·         Earth has exactly the right amount of water for life as we know
·         The moon appears exactly the same size as the sun allowing for the rhythmic viewing of solar eclipses
·         The moon always faces us with the same side according to its rotation
·         Giant gas planets protect us from asteroids and comets

Ps 8:1 ¶  « To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm of David. » O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
2  Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
3 ¶  When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
4  What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
5  For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
6  Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
7  All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
8  The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
9  O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

Heb1:1 ¶  God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2  Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
3  Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
4 ¶  Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

Isa 45;11 ¶  Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.
12  I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.

Astronomy in the Bible

·         The sun and it’s circuits that moves at 600,000 mph around the galaxy.

Ps 19:1 ¶  « To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. » The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
2  Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
3  There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
4  Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
5  Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
6  His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

 ·         Planets with life are very very rare. In the study of astronomy, none have been found

The earth hangs in space and is a sphere:
Job 26:7  He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.

Pv 8:27  When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:
Isa 40:22  It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:

People have tried to count the stars or centuries; there are about 4000 visible to the naked eye. The Bible states that there are stars of the heaven like the sand of the sea, Gn 22:17, Jer 33:22
Modern astronomy estimates the stars at being 10 to the 26th power, 100 million billion billion. Counting 10 per second it would take a thousand million billion years to get to that number. However, this is the same estimate of the number of sand grains in the earth too.

Ps 147:4  He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.
5  Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.

Now lets move into Gn 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; …. God did not make the earth that way, but the Word teaches that it was created beautiful and perfect.

The earth was wonderful and not void, Job 38:4-11
The pillars of the earth are the Lord’s…He sat the world upon them, 1Sm 2:8b
The earth was in perfection, Job 15:29b
The earth is the LORD’s and the fullness thereof, Ps24.1
The earth is full of the goodness of the LORD, Ps 33:5
The earth is full of His riches, Ps 104:24
Wisdom founded the earth and heavens, Pv 3:19
Wisdom (Jesus) is there when the earth was made habitable, Pv 8:22-31
The earth was formed to be inhabited, Is 45:18

So, what happened that made the earth formless and void? Rebellion

Continuing in Gn 1:2… and darkness was on the face of the deep
Hebrew for deep is thowm also means the abyss (8415) root meaning: uproar, agitate, destroy.

The depths of the sea…the gates of death, Job 38:16-17

Demons ask Jesus not to be sent to the deep, Lk 8:31 (128 Gk abyss, bottomless pit)

Jesus preached to prisoners in hades/pit, 1 Pet 3:19-20, Eph 4, Is 42:7

Angels which sinned are in chains in the lowest pit, Jude 6

The future holds more for the devil and his angels and the demons involving the abyss and their final destination, the lake of fire. This is the real hell and sits below the lowest part of hades and the pit.
Satan is cast in the bottomless pit for 1000 years, Rev 20:23
Abbaddon opens the bottomless pit during the tribulation, Rev 9
Lake of fire was made for the devil and his angels, Mt 25:41

It appears that the rebellion of Lucifer had taken place by Gn 1:2 and the prison for the fallen angels was in place.

Continuing on in Gn 1:2….And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

The destruction that caused the earth to be formless and void was a flood.

Ps 24:2  For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

Science agrees that the last worldwide ice age was about 10,500 years ago.

According  to  Biblical record, it has been 6126 years since the 1st man Adam in 2017.
Understand that 4000 years of that record was on a lunar calendar of 360 day years, and 2000 years was on a solar calendar of 365.25 day years.

When Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden, God made them “coats” of skins (total body covering) for the weather was extremely cold, Gn 3:21.

Science has discovered that Alaska, Siberia, and the Northern Arctic regions were all covered in lush vegetation in the ancient past. In a cataclysmic event, all was churned and frozen in perma-frost, with the large mammoths encased in the mud/ice in a very short time. In 1970 there was a mammoth uncovered that was frozen so fast, it was still edible.

St Petersburg stuffed mammoth.

Science believes that the ancient world was destroyed suddenly causing the extinction of so many large reptiles and mammals. Their evidence is fossils. 

Luba frozen mammoth calf in Royal BC

Science has determined that coal is formed from a vast collection of plants that were gathered in one place and compressed.

A Glossopteris leaf from the Prince Charles Mountains.

Billions of compressed leaves and wood fragments have generated thick coal beds in Antarctica

Oil also is formed from vast collections of animals gathered and compressed.

Many trees have been found that permeate several layers (polystrate) of coal or sediment, meaning that the coal or sediment was laid down all at once. 

Hominoid bones found in cave in South Africa.

2 cataclysmic worldwide floods that the Bible describes would account for these things. Again evidence found agrees with the Biblical accounts; the flood before Adam, and Noah’s flood which was 1656 years after Adam, Gn 6. Much of the waters that covered the earth in Gn 1:2 were ice.

Fossilized Tortoise found buried in Colombia.

 Lucifer (light bringer) Satan (adversary)

The belief that all creation took place in the 6 days of Genesis leaves no place for the creation of the angels, including Lucifer, or the rebellion and Lucifer’s name changed to Satan. Yet we know that by the time that Eve meets Satan, he is a renegade spirit, an outcast without any significant power. He has to possess a serpent to even talk to Eve. When he does talk, he is denying what God has said.

God in His infinite wisdom included in His Word information about the devil, his rebellion, and his final demise for us to know about our enemy. In the time before Adam, Lucifer had a throne on the earth, there were cities, and many types of life, but none made in God’s image.

                                                             Reconstructed Hominid

10 years ago I went into a lot of detail about Satan, but I am not spending a lot of time on that in this study.  Here are some scriptures for you if you want to look further into this:
Is 14, Ez 28, Jer 4:23-31, Job 30.

Satan is known as the “god of this world”, 2 Cor 4:4,  and “the prince of the power of the air”, Ep 2:2. He got this power when he deceived Adam into disobeying God and assumed Adam’s dominion of the earth. He will cause trouble for mankind, God’s most prized creation, until the time of man’s dominion is over. Satan then will be cast into the lake of fire along with his angels and all who follow him, Rev 20.

The Gap Theory

So, there was a time before Adam which makes the earth much older than 6000 years. This is how I understand the separation of Gn1 and 2. Many who profess the Gap Theory believe in creation mixed with evolution…I do not. God is the creator.

Relevant is when God told Adam and Eve to be fruitful and replenish the earth, Gn 1:28. This is the same thing God told Noah after his flood Gn 9:1. This implies life before the flood in both cases.
Ps 104:30  Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.
Ps 90:1 ¶  « A Prayer of Moses the man of God. » Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.
2  Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.
3  Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.

2 Pet 3:5  For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
6  Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

We will discuss more creation with scientific facts and the evolution theory which is without those facts when we get to evolution following this beginning study.
Ps 97:1 ¶  The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.

Continuing in Gn 1:3 And God said…

God speaks and things happen without fail.
Is 55:11  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Is 40:8  The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

We do need to understand that the Word is God, and that the Word became flesh and dwelled with men as a man, Jesus, Jn 1:1-14

As mentioned earlier we have the Trinity represented in the first 3 verses of Genesis: God, Spirit of God, and the Word of God. Even though “Trinity” is not in the Bible, it describes a triune God which is in 3 persons. Not 3 Gods, 1 God.

The Trinity and triune universe are not a logical absurdity, as some people and religions claim, but is a scientific, living reality. After the resurrection of Jesus from the dead and His sending of the Holy Spirit, the Trinity is the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

The Bible says that His eternal power and Godhead are clearly evident in the things that we see, that He made, Rm 1. It may be difficult to think of the Trinity as one God, but look at the universe; it is composed of matter, space, and time. It is not part of each but all space, all matter, and all time…this is a trinity. As mentioned, but in more detail each component of the universe is also a trinity.

Space is measured in 3 dimensions which is multiplied to find the volume: length, height, and width. So the math of the Trinity is 1 X 1 X 1 =1.

Time is experienced in 3 parts; past, present, and future. Each is distinct, but meaningless without the other two. The future, unseen or experienced source of time, present is the time being seen, past proceeds from future through the present into the realm of past experience.

Matter is unseen energy manifesting itself in motion and experienced in various phenomena. These phenomena all occur in space through time. Unseen but omni-present energy generates motion velocity of which is the ratio of space to time. Depending on the rates and types of motion various phenomena are experienced; light, sound, texture, harness, heat, etc.
Matter appears in 3 states; solid, liquid, and gas.
Matter is composed of molecules which are composed of atoms. Atoms are the smallest part of elements which are basically 3 parts; protons, neutrons, and electrons. There are smaller particles that comprise protons and neutrons, but they are only found when the atom is broken apart called leptons and quarks.

There are 3 main forces as well: gravity, electromagnetism, and nuclear. Nuclear is broken down into strong and weak force.

Einstein’s theory of relativity is  E=MC2. The vast power that is contained in the atom is partially comprehended here in mathematical terms. That very power is from God.
Jesus holds all power in the universe, Heb 1:1-3
By Jesus all things consist (are held together), Col 1:17

Einstein also came up with a special relativity theory which dealt with gravity which changes space time.

Heb 11:3  Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

Continuing in Gn 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. (Heb: bring forth light and light was)

Hebrew for God’s name of the eternal Holy One is yud hey vav hey. This is not pronounceable for the Hebrews and they say Hashem or the Name. Jehovah is what the letters spell using the pronunciation punctuation used in Adoni.  Some try and call the name Yaweh. Shortened it is Jah (Elijah Halelujah). So, the thing that is recorded that God spoke was the Name of His Son, Jesus (Gk) Yeshua or Joshua. God called Jesus forth, and He brought the light.

1 Jn 1:5b…that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
Jn 1:6-10 John the Baptist came to be a witness of the true Light which lights every man that comes into the world.
Jn 8:12 Jesus said, I AM the light of the world…

Science used to think as photons being a wave that was emitted from an atom, now they think it is an elementary particle that is charged with electromagnetic energy and produces light.

According to Einstein’s theory, when matter would accelerate to the speed of light, mass would become infinite and time would stop. Science has proved that time slows with acceleration. We have seen that He is light, and in God’s realm of heaven time does not exist. God is infinite and is everywhere in the universe.
2 Pe 3:8  But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
Ps 139:7-12 God is everywhere in the universe and sees everything.

Continuing in Gn 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness

God saw the light that it was good.

It has been stipulated that darkness is only the absence of light; but science is finding that it may have substance.

Not long ago science believed that after Creation (big bang), all of the universe was expanding and slowing down because of gravity and would eventually collapse on itself and there might be another big bang. Since the Hubble telescope science now has observed that the universe is expanding more rapidly that it was a long time ago.

Dark Matter and Energy

Even though it cannot be seen and emits no light, science now thinks that the universe is composed of 68% dark energy, and 27% dark matter. The 5% remaining is what we can see. Science know that this is a mystery, and their calculations are because of the force actions on the bodies we can see.

                                                         Abell 2744 blue is dark matter

Ps 18:11 God made darkness his secret place…His pavilion round about him wer dark waters and thick clouds…
Job 38:9 (on the creation of earth) When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it.
Ex 20:21 … Moses drew near to the thick darkness where God was.
Ps 139:12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.
It looks like God is light, but He can dwell in the darkness. We do know that God is omnipresent.

The first creation of earth had been corrupted and God had caused it to become formless and void. Now it was being reestablished based on His goodness.
Ps 104:30 God renews the face of the earth.

Continuing in Gn 1:5 And God called the light Day and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and morning were the first day. ( Hebrew: there was evening and morning, day 1).

I have no reason to believe that this was anything different than a 24 hour day. Even though there was an undetermined amount of time (smaller that is supposed and taught) before this creation week, the times that we have since then were established by God as we will see.
The times established for the forming of the earth and of life in the scientific community have been changed for the greater in the last several decades; from hundreds of thousands of years to billions of years.
It seems that the evolutionary thought process believes that anything can form by chance, given enough time. Elaborate formulas are developed that at first glance seem to “prove” these vast ages. We will discuss flaws in this later on in this study.

Continuing in Gn 1: 6 ¶  And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7  And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
8  And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

We understand today that the weather is dependent on the moisture in the atmosphere. Here it is fitly explained. Hydrology is the study of the actions of water. Before this science was established, there was ancient understanding of the weather cycles written in scripture.
Job 36: 27  For he maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof:
28  Which the clouds do drop and distil upon man abundantly.
Eccl 1:6  The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.
7  All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.

Water is one of the basic keys in having life as we know and understand. The earth is very special because of its abundant water.

Continuing Gn 1: 9 ¶  And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

Pangaea is the one continent scientific theory that divided into the 7 continents of the earth. The Bible tells us that in the days of Peleg, the earth was divided. This would be after the Tower of Babble.  

10  And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

11  And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

12  And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
13  And the evening and the morning were the third day.

The almost infinite species of plant life in the earth is astounding we are still discovering new ones. The interaction with the animals is an intricate balance that life on earth depends on and was founded on. It is obvious when we clear cut or burn large amounts of forests, that the environment suffers. This again goes back to:
Rm 1:20..the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead so they are without excuse.

With all of the scientific research and experiments preformed, we have never been able to understand or copy a seed.

Seeds can last thousands of years and still germinate (Egyptian tombs) or float for years and wash up on a new volcanic beach and grow (South Pacific).

We can graft and cross plants to get mor production or even seedless fruit. However, the many types of wheat was a intelligent design that protects against disease. Too much meddling could hurt the future of wheat production.

All in all we have not produced any new species, only refined what was available. The life in the plant is in the seed, within itself… as it was created.

Continuing Gn 1: 14 ¶  And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
15  And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
16  And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
17  And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
18  And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
19  And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

Light from Jesus on day 1 has been present till this day, (and still is) but the newly created plants have to have the sunlight in order to complete photosynthesis in order to survive. So, God lights the sun on day 4. The Bible is not clear of the state of the sun in the time before the 6 days. It is possible in the war with Lucifer that the reaction of the sun was stopped and that is what caused the ice age.
Science has generally accepted the theory of a comet striking the earth and covering the atmosphere with clouds that killed of the dinosaurs, which would have been in the time before the 6 days.

Since day 4, our times, seasons, days, and years are all based on the sun, moon, and stars. I do not believe that this verse implies that the sun, moon, and stars were made on this day. Without the sun’s light, you cannot see the moon, and the Spirit of God seems to add that “He made the stars also.”

Continuing Gn 1:20 ¶  And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

21  And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

22  And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
23  And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. 

As far as the order of Creation, we see the ocean’s many life forms made first, and then the birds.
Even though the evolution theory is not founded on facts, it still claims that the oceans had animal life first.

Continuing Gn 1: 24 ¶  And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

25  And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

26 ¶  And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. (Triune being; body, soul, and spirit, 1Thess 5:23)

28  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29 ¶  And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30  And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

31 ¶  And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

God tells Adam to replenish the earth, alluding to a previous population. This would include the dinosaurs and hominoids as evidenced in the fossils of the flood in Gn 1:2.  God says the same statement to Noah in Gn 9:1, after the flood described in Gn 6.

The origin of life can only be comprehended by a Creator, or as science calls it, intelligent design. Modern man was created in the image of God with an ability to speak, create, and have faith. Jesus taught us that the spirit of man can be reborn in Him.
We cannot trace our ancestry further back than Adam. Science speaks of modern man being about 10,000 years ago, about the same as the ice age. Biblical times would be 6126 years ago (from 2017)

The complexity of DNA, the human body, diversity of plants and animals, all point to a Creator by scientific reasoning.
·         DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is the blueprint of living things. Each strand is about 6’ long. If the DNA cells in a human body were stretched out end to end it would go to the moon and back 20,000 times. If the information contained in one human DNA cell were transposed to a computer and printed, the paper would fill the Grand Canyon.

·         There are 75 trillion cells in the human body. Each has a DNA strand to define each cell’s function and compatibility with the rest of the body cells.
·         Each cell has 50 billion atoms.
·         50,000 cells die and are replaced every 4 seconds.
·         24 sq ft of skin is replaced every 2 weeks.
·         The blood vessels in the body if stretched out linear would circle the earth 3 times.
·         Within the blood vessels are 25 trillion blood cells. (life is in blood Lv 17:11)
·         Within the womb during human development, the 1,000,000 nerves in the optic nerve are       connected from the eye to the brain, each exactly.

Ps 139:14  I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. 15  My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16  Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

A mental reference of comparison for these large numbers:
            1 mill seconds ago is 12 days ago
            1 bill seconds ago is 32 years ago
            1 trill seconds ago was 31,710 years ago

If you spent $100 a minute it would take 1902 years to spend a trillion dollars.

The law of probability of life coming into existence by chance is not comprehendible, 4^300.  Science estimates that the atoms in the universe are 10^78-82. Even the simplest life forms with all of the different chemicals and components that would have to mix in exact proportions, mathematically could not have happened even once in 13 billion years (proposed age).
Yet that is accepted and taught in much of science. They look for another reason, and God is not considered in much of the scientific world.

Gn 2:1 ¶  Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2  And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
3  And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. {created … : Heb. created to make }

A big point here is God was finished with creation on day 6 and called all very good.  Science agrees that matter/energy cannot be created or destroyed, the first law of Thermo Dynamics.
The second law of Thermo Dynamics states that all things deteriorate and that all energy dissipates, with some not recoverable. In other words, everything ages and wears out.
Ps 102: 25  Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.
26  They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:
27  But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end. 

That is why we have not developed perpetual motion machines, for without energy being added to a machine the friction and wear will stop it. This second law has to be ignored to accept much of the popular evolution theory. 

The fall of man is actually the start of this decay. Satan is ruling with the dominion of Adam.
Rm 8:20  For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
21  Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
22  For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

God has promised that He will make all things new:
Rev 21:1a ¶  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth:
Isa 65:17 ¶  For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
Isa 66:22  For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.

The rest of Gn 2 has some interesting things to learn about the Creation week:
·         There was no rain, only a heavy dew that watered the earth
·         God breathed the breath of life into Man who was made from the elements of the earth.
·         God made man before God planted the Garden of Eden
·         Man could eat freely of every tree in the garden, except the Tree of the Knowledge of Blessing and Calamity
·         The Tree of Life was in the garden, eating would make a mortal man live forever. It will return in the New Jerusalem.
·         Adam named all the species of animals and remembered them (700,000)
·         Woman was made from Adam’s rib, and marriage instituted.

Summary and review:
·         God created the heaven and earth sometime in the far distant past.
·         The earth was made beautiful, made to be inhabited.
·         There was a system on the earth which Lucifer had been given authority over. With his wisdom and pride, he corrupted the perfect earth.
·         God took this world away from Lucifer, and it became formless and void. The Cherub’s new name became Satan, and a prison (abyss, pit) was created for the angels that followed in the rebellion.
·         God renewed the earth and all that is in 6 days.
·         God gave dominion of the earth to Adam, a man created in the image of God.
·         The 7th day God was finished, and Creation ceased.
·         Satan’s deception of Eve through possessing the serpent allowed him to have dominion of the earth and decay followed.

The points made thus far in this study are congruent with science and the evidence supports Biblical accounts.

I believe that God entrusted Lucifer to prepare the earth for God and His Host to move here. After the rebellion, God wanted a human companion made in His own image. The fall of man has delayed those things but in the future, the Bible shows us that God moves to the earth and lives with men. The story is simply told in my book The Plan: A Biblical Adventure available at

Through Jesus, God restored Grace to men by His sacrifice on the cross to pay for man's fall and your sin; past, present, and future. In Jesus Christ, you have obtained His righteousness as a gift and have right standing with God.
