The Genesis Question

Dr. Hugh Ross

Addresses issues in the first eleven chapters of Genesis. Excellent starting point for understanding creationism. From the Publisher: When pushed for examples, those who think the Bible contains scientific error often point to the early chapters of Genesis as proofcreation, the flood, 800-year life spans. Science has largely been silent on the subjectuntil now. Examining recent leading-edge scientific discoveries, Dr. Hugh Ross explores how these very chapters hold some of the strongest scientific evidence for the Bible's supernatural accuracy. The Genesis Question integrates the accuracy of both science and the Biblewithout compromisegiving skeptics and believers common ground and opportunity for dialog. According to recent surveys conducted by Reasons to Believe, the perceived improbability of Genesis 1-11 is what keeps 90% of people from believing in the reliability of the Bible. Complete and up-to-date, The Genesis Question uses scientific data to provide readers with solid answers to their questions regarding scientific advances and the accuracy of Genesis. If you want to understand how the discoveries of science and the truth of the Bible relate, The Genesis Question offers a cutting-edge approach to integrate science and theology in such a way that neither is compromised."

     One cannot help but think about the pain and suffering in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.  Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims and their relatives.  Please remember them in your prayers.

     With the summer over, we have already seen a large jump in our visitors.  During August 2004, we had a decline before visitors increased in September.  This year, the increase started in August, with 1,400 more visitors than July.  During August, Old Earth Ministries had 7,197 visitors, viewing 16,804 pages.  I am looking forward to September!   For more statistics, see  About OEM.

     During the past month I've been very busy with reviews of young earth books.  I've completed two book reviews, one on After Eden, by Henry Morris III, and the other on The Beginnings Under Attack, by Bill Sheffield.  Both books take a novel approach in presenting no evidence for a young earth, instead focusing on what amounts to emotional appeals to young earth creationists to stay true.  They are a testimony to the current state of affairs within young earth creationism.  They are desperately trying to get their followers from defecting to old earth creationism.

     I'm currently working on a book review of Frozen In Time, by Michael Oard, or, "Mr. Ice Age" as he is known at Answers in Genesis.  I'm currently almost halfway finished with this project.  I can say that so far there are no significant issues for old earth believers, as I've had no problems finding flaws in his theory for the Ice Age.  This review should be posted by 15 September.


In Christ,

Featured Article - Ark Study Flawed
     The Featured Article will highlight one article or section of the website each month. In what is supposed to be a scientific study of how the ark could have easily survived a global flood, the authors forgot one key factor, which nullifies their entire study.   Click here to read this article.
