Creation Week Overview

As the week progresses, the creation process becomes more complex.

Day 1, Genesis 1:3–5              Light created.

Day 2, Genesis 1:6–8              Sky created.

Day 3, Genesis 1:9–13            Water and land separated, plants created.

Day 4, Genesis 1:14–19          Sun, moon, stars created.

Day 5, Genesis 1:20–23          Sea and flying creatures created.

Day 6, Genesis 1:24–2:1         Ground life (livestock, insects, animals) and man created.

Day 7, Genesis 2:2–3              Sabbath, rest, week created.

When one takes an overview of the creation week, it is obvious this chain of events does not fit the order of modern thinking. Every day of the creation week will be in opposition to current scientific thought. For example, plants (day 3) were created by God before the sun (day 4) was on the scene. From an evolutionary perspective, could plants survive millions of years without the sun for photosynthesis? That fact alone is at odds with many theories of the origins of life. Evolution holds to the opinion that the sun was present before plants. Evolutionists think these processes take millions of years.

Compare the Bible’s account of creation to the most widely accepted Astronomy view, The Big Bang Theory. The Big Bang states the universe was created approximately 13.7 Billion years ago. The Bible states the creation is approximately 10,000 years old based on genealogies from Adam. The scientific experts speak in billions of years. God’s view is less than 10,000 years. At this point, who is more specific? Who is more precise, man or God?

The Big Bang Theory states there was a hot, massive explosion point from a “singularity” that occurred and the universe continues to expand. The Bible states God created our world out of nothing. God spoke the creation into existence. There is no mention of an explosion in the Bible. God talked. Scientists have no explanation what caused their Big Bang. Scientists have no explanation where their “singularity” came from. Where did the mass of the explosion come from in the Big Bang? How did that mass get there? And people who believe in a Biblical account of creation are accused of believing in fairy tales? Information regarding the Big Bang was obtained from

The age of the earth is a separate issue according to science. According the U.S. Geological Survey, the earth is 4.54 billion years old plus or minus 1% (real specific!). According to science, the earth showed up 9.16 billion years later after the Big Bang. In the beginning, God created the heavens and earth (Genesis 1:1).

In regards to the development of life, The Big Bang Theory and evolution are at odds with each other. The Big Bang Theory states a universe 100 billion years old is not adequate for the development of a single cell (Answers to Evolution, Rose Publishing). According to theorists, life should not even exist on this planet for at least 95 billion more years. Scripture says the creation of life was completed in six days. There was no evolution from primordial slime to highly complex life forms in the Bible. We did not become more complex over time with gradual changes that took millions of years. We were created fully operational.

From man’s perspective, don’t let the facts get in the way.

1)      Even if all the data point to an intelligent designer, such a hypothesis is excluded from science because it is not naturalistic. Todd, Scott C., “A View from Kansas on the Evolution Debates,” Nature (vol. 401, September 30, 1999), p. 423. Mr. Scott is Biology Professor at Kansas State University.

2)      And I use that trust to effectively brainwash them. . . . our teaching methods are primarily those of propaganda. We appeal — without demonstration — to evidence that supports our position. We only introduce arguments and evidence that supports the currently accepted theories and omit or gloss over any evidence to the contrary. Singham, Mark, “Teaching and Propaganda,” Physics Today (vol. 53, June 2000), p. 54.

God’s word is radically different than man’s opinion. Isaiah 55:8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD.

This is not a scientific argument. God’s word is history.
