A Discussion of the Beginning of Genesis

I’ve been meaning to blog many different things over the past weeks, including a site redesign, but I simply haven’t had time. But, I found an extremely interesting discussion on the beginning of Genesis. I haven’t read all of the comments yet, but I was very impressed by the attempt to be fair to both a reading of Genesis and to modern science, without name-calling.

Some of the interesting parts of the discussion (my favorite entry is entitled Nature Red in Tooth and Claw include:

  • Evolution implies death, and a literal six-day creation typically implies no death before the fall.
  • Yet, did not plants die before the fall? How are they different than animals and humans? Are they classified differently?
  • Some argue that death was a natural occurance before the fall.
  • God used animal skins; that meant that God killed animals to clothe Adam and Eve after the fall.

I’d love to hear some of your thoughts!
