A Debilitating Conflict Resolved.
The account of Creation (as chronicled in the Biblical book of Genesis, King James
Version 1611, in Tankah: The Holy Scriptures, in The Holy Quran, and in extra-Biblical
texts) and the scientifically determined pre-geologic, geologic, and “evolution” timelines
regarding the development of the universe, the Earth and life upon it, fuse. What
Scriptures say happened on each of the six “days” of Creation precisely parallels that
which scientists have determined to have occurred during the universe’s 13.7-billionyears of existence and Earth’s 4.7-billion-year development. The concrete connection
between the two serves the religious interest as it validates the Intelligent Design belief.
It serves the secular interest of helping Biblical Literalists to advance in their attainment
of scientific knowledge as it provides evidence that the universe, the earth, and life upon
it, were not created less than 10,000 years ago in six literal 24-hour periods.
