I just have been watching a very interesting video that I would like to share with other Bible-believers on the forum and see what you think about this. It is over an hour long; so unless you have a real interest in the Bible and how science pertains to the Genesis story of creation, this may be a longer video than you want to watch. However, if you (like me) have a deep interest in how this world actually came into being, and where we fit into the universe, as well as wanting to have a deeper understanding of how science does or does not support the Bible; then you will probably agree that it was an hour well spent. This topic is obviously not going to be of much interest to anyone who does not believe in God or the Bible, and that is why I have put it in the religious area, rather than in one of the main sub-forums. To preface this topic, let me start with a little introduction of what we are discussing here. The book of Genesis gives us the story of the creation of this world. It says that the sun was not even created until the Fourth Day of Creation, and that by then, there was abundant vegetation growing on the earth. There is no way that the earth could have been circling around the sun, since it had not even been created yet. The earth was the first creation, before the sun, moon, and stars. Scientists tell us that the earth is just an ordinary planet with an ordinary star which (we call the sun) in a galaxy somewhere in an almost endless universe. The Bible says that the earth is stationary, and that it cannot be moved. It does not say anything that even begins to imply that we fly through space and orbit around the sun. For thousands of years, people everywhere believed that the earth was the center of the universe, and as the Bible told us, that the sun rises and sets. Eventually, pagan sun-worshippers like Copernicus said that we needed to make the sun as the center of the universe, and the earth circling it, rather than the sun rising and setting. Gradually, that world-view gained popularity, and has been the accepted view since then. Christians, and other religions who believe the Bible as the word of God have tried to fit the two views together, and somehow meld creation and evolution into one belief. I am one of those people who have tried to take the Bible literally and still make it fit with what we were taught in school science class, and had a hard time doing it without calling the Bible wrong. This video is an amazing walk through time with a Bible scholar who also understands science, and it explains a lot of things differently than I have heard before. Anyone who wants to take the time to watch this video and comment, please do.
