Do we have to believe the biblical account of creation on “blind faith”? Or is there solid scientific evidence for the biblical account? Thomas Purifoy Jr. provides some evidence for you to evaluate in the documentary Is Genesis History? If you will click on the link, you will find an introduction and overview as well as extra resources below the film. I believe the film is worth the 1 hour and 45 minutes that it takes to watch. So set aside some time for this.
Before you begin, it’s helpful to know that the Seventh-day Adventist view differs from the view presented in a key aspect: We do not believe that God created the whole universe by divine fiat on the “first day” of Genesis 1 – only this earth or solar system. (You decide.) So we are not burdened with having to explain how we can see star light from stars millions of light years away on our young earth. But the video is very good in going over the main lines of scientific evidence and seems suitable both for the average person and the scientifically inclined. I was happy to find this documentary available for free on Youtube and share it with you here:
After you watch the video, we would love to have you post your comments or questions below.
