Topic: The Genesis Creation Days - Defining Old Earth Creationism
by Brandon Reddell, PhD
Does the Bible teach that the universe and earth are < 10,000 years old? The answer is no, and this has not been an issue for most of church history. In fact, there are many Christians who are scientists, engineers, and doctors, who have come to faith with an inherent view of an old universe. So, what is Old Earth Creationism? This talk will walk through the Genesis creation account to define this view, not only showing it's Biblical support, but also comparing how our scientific knowledge of the development of the Earth remarkably aligns with what the Bible has declared over 2,000 years ago. Please join us as we walk through the creation account and define what is meant by Old Earth Creationism.
