There is a high
probability that any discrepancy between Godís Word and
Godís Creation is a human error.
Godís creations were created in 6 days. This includes
the Heavens and the Earth. Yet when we look at the
geological evidence on Earth it appears to be older when
measured in human years. Why? I can take you into our
Texas hill country and the geological evidence is
abundant. This evidence indicates our Earth is very old.
appears to be a discrepancy and much conflict resulting
between creationism and evolution. I personally do not
see any conflict. I also do not find any reason conflict
should exist unless people are happy when they are
having conflict. This 6 day issue is a good place for
conflict if conflict must exist because it will do no
harm. Unfortunately, there are better areas to focus
on the gift God has to offer mankind.
You and I
refer to a day as 24 hours. A day is the time it takes
the Earth to rotate on its axis one revolution. So what
was a day to God before the Earth existed? Please
understand that before God created the heavens and the
Earth, the Earth did not exist. Was a day the,
soon-to-be, rotation of the Earth? Was it the rotation
of our solar system? Maybe it was the rotation of our
Galaxy. We really do not know what the length of a day
was to God. How could we possibly know? The concept of
time is complex and God knew this. However, he did
provide us a clue which we would eventually begin to
figure out. Read the next two verses from the Bible.
90:4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as
yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
Peter 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.
many years of study before human beings eventually
discovered that time is variable. That is right. It is
VARIABLE. Einstein discovered the formula E = MC2.
Other related aspects of his Theory of Relativity say
that the speed of light is constant in outer space. He
also clearly proved that TIME is variable. We have
tested his theory with our own spacecraft and it has
been proven to be exactly what Einstein predicted. The
variation of time is exactly what the Bible tells us. It
is variable. If you were to travel at 90% of the speed
of light, time would be going about 10 times slower for
you than a person who is not moving. At the beginning of
the Big Bang theory matter was moving extremely close to
the speed of light so time was very close to standing
still. One day might have been billions of years long.
aspects of physics are difficult for people to
understand if you do not study it on a regular basis. It
took our bests scientists thousands of years to finally
discover what the Bible already told us. Godís creation
was created in 6 days according to God but it would be
about 5 billion years to mortal human beings. So
essentially the creation theory and evolution are both
correct. One theory completely agrees with the other if
you put those theories in the perspective of what is
possible with God or what is possible with scientific
like to present an aspect of science that exists in the
scientific community. Any theory or hypothesis must be
totally documented and open to scrutiny for everyone.
Not only must they present the theory but they must also
totally document the method by which they derived that
theory. They must include all evidence and every test
used in making the determination. Then everyone else in
the world is totally free to take that evidence and
punch holes in it. The evidence either holds up to
scientific scrutiny or it fails. Often times a theory is
speculative but the scientists often are aware of the
probability of error. This is also published and can be
adjusted with new information. I do not see the
scientific community trying to compete with religion in
a negative way. Even Charles Darwin never competed with
religion. Charles Darwin was trained in the ministry. He
never once did anything with ill intentions toward the
church. His observations of the Earth were nothing more
than documenting exactly what he saw. His theory of
evolution was based on his personal observation of the
Earth. If you ever have the opportunity to visit the
Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC you will see the
most abundant evidence of what our Earth has to offer.
You can visibly observe the wonder of Godís creation in
ask any nuclear physicist or any person with a degree in
physics and they will all tell you time is variable. It
is a fact that we have been able to absolutely prove
long after God told us. Anyone who finds conflict
between creationism and evolution is finding conflict
between Godís Word and Godís Creation. So we have people
trying to resolve conflict in an area where conflict
never existed. Iím sure we can all think of
areas to help make this a better world to live in by
following the examples Jesus set for us. For reference
on the variable time see E=MC2.
My mathematical references
here are used as an example. The relationship between
speed and time are not linear in reality. If you have a
problem with my interpretation then take it up with God.
