The Genesis Code

 

“Everyone accepts the fact that science and the Bible are at odds with most major issues, especially when it comes to the creation of the universe.  Genesis says the earth and the universe were created in six days.  Science says it took some 15 or 16 billion years.  The Bible seems to be at complete odds with science, just a religious fable spun by the ancients to explain the unknowable.  It’s the first 31 verses that people can’t seem to get past.  Was it 6 days or 16 billion years?  You can’t have it both ways---until now.  Is the Bible right or is science right?  Both are absolutely correct---according to the laws of relativity Albert Einstein discovered.”

 

“In reality, Genesis 1:1-31 is written from God’s perspective outside of Space and Time or what physicists call Space-Time, or what Star Trek coined as the Space-Time Continuum.  We’re reading it as humans from our own particular frame and point of reference inside of Space-Time.  God inspired Moses to write Genesis 1:1-31 from his own frame of reference “outside of Space-Time,” as someone sitting next to God would have witnessed the events of creation unfolding. 

 

Some Basic Physics In Layman’s Terms

 

Time itself, as Einstein discovered, is actually different for observers in different frames of reference, when one frame is in motion relative to another.  In normal lower speeds we humans are accustomed to the difference is imperceptible.  But as the speed approaches the speed of light the impact, the differences are overwhelming.  The greater the speed in one frame of reference to another, the slower time passes in the accelerating frame of reference.  And, also, gravity has the same effect on time as does speed.  So time also passes slower in a frame of reference where the force of gravity is greater than to another frame of reference with weaker gravity.

 

Let’s Look At The Universe

 

Scientists used to believe the universe was in steady-state.  Go outside and look up at the stars.  There they are, right where they were the night before, and the night before that.  [Pleiades, a beautiful constellation is mentioned in the Book of Job, which is reputed to be the oldest book in the Bible.]  Steady-state, says the universe always was and always would be, forever.  And time, we always knew what time was, the ticking of the clock, always the same, one day to the next, the same, here, on the moon, across the universe, a thousand years ago.  Time moved forward, yesterday, today and tomorrow, always at the same speed, tick, tock.  And then along came Albert Einstein and everything changed (our perceptions of Time & Space changed, that is). 

 

The Big Bang And Relativity

 

In the beginning (talking Relativity now, and astrophysics, not Bible, or Steady-State time) there was nothing, the universe did not exist, no planets or stars, not even empty space, nothing, not even time.  And out of this complete nothing there was a flash! and a speck was formed, no bigger than a mustard seed.  And in that tiny speck was all that everything would be.  And that speck expanded at 100’s of millions of miles per hour.  It was a ball of pure energy, dense, massive, beyond imagination, and the temperature was in the trillions of degrees, a mass of pure plasma expanding at the speed of light.  Everything that ever would be, the material of everything that exists today, the planets and the stars, all living things, Time & Space itself was at that moment in this ball of pure plasma energy.  This was good news, Einstein’s revelations, for Bible thumpers, it says there was a beginning, just like it says in the Bible.  Of course, the bad news was, the Bible says it all happened in six days.  The idea this Big Bang all came about as a result of Einstein’s theory of relativity (which has proven to be the laws of relativity), where he established in the physical sciences, that nothing was absolute, everything was relative to speed.  It’s a concept in physics we call Time-Dilation.  For someone traveling at near the speed of light, time passes more slowly than for someone waiting on earth.  Less actual time elapses for someone traveling near the speed of light than for one who is stationary on earth.  For an object at rest time passes as we are accustomed, as the object begins to accelerate and as it approaches the speed of light, the amount of time that passes decreases.  The passage of time is relative to speed, time-dilation.  The effect of increased gravity (say at the Event-Horizon of a black hole) slows the passage of time, just as traveling near the speed of light does.  For an object in a zero or low gravity environment (such as found on earth) time passes as we’re all accustomed to it.  As the force of gravity on an object increases, the passage of time narrows, time slows down.  To sum it up, time is not fixed or constant.  Time or the passage of time is effected by speed or gravity, the greater the speed or the greater the force of gravity, the slower the passage of time. 

 

The Stretching Of Space Also Slows Time

 

Science tells us at the instant of the Big Bang, everything that would be in the universe and anything in it, including Space & Time itself, was compressed to a speck the size of a mustard seed.  Now as the universe expanded, galaxies formed.  Notice as the universe expands the distance between the galaxies increases.  There is no more (quantity-wise) matter, or space or time, it’s just the distance between what there is, is increasing.  Space itself is stretching.  As space stretches, so does time.  Just as time is effected by speed and by gravity, it is also effected by the stretching of space.  But the stretching of space effects time from one moment to another, rather than just one place to another.  And this brings us back to Genesis and the quandary of six days or 16 billion years.  Now in order to understand these first six days we need to identify the frame of reference in which they unfold.  How is the story of Genesis conveyed to man?  The first five books of the Bible, including Genesis, were given directly to Moses by God (or God inspired certain others to write those books).  So the source of the story of the first six days, directly or indirectly, is God.  So Genesis 1 is told through God’s perspective, from his, scientifically speaking, frame of reference…So, just what was God’s frame of reference?  God’s frame of reference when telling the story had to be somewhere not effected by local distortions [of Space-Time], like speed or gravity [or the stretching of space itself], and that “somewhere” had to be the total universe itself, not some isolated locality within it [or outside of Space-Time itself].  So the question is, how does time unfold in this Cosmic frame of reference?

 

How Does Time Unfold In This Cosmic Frame Of Reference?  What Is A Clock?  A Look At The Cosmic Clock

 

So the question is, how does time unfold in this Cosmic frame of reference?  How is it recorded?  To understand that we must first understand what a clock really is.  A clock is anything that repeats itself periodically where the rhythm of those cycles can be used to denote the passage of time.  That’s straight from the dictionary, tic, toc, tic, toc…A clock is not something that creates time, a clock only records the passage of time.  So the Cosmic clock that God uses to relate his time of creation to man is what?  The answer simply is light.  Light is the only constant in the universe, it provides a method of measuring the passage of time in the Cosmos.  Light can be used as a Cosmic clock to measure the passage of time by any change in the cycle or frequency of light…The distances between the crests of the light-wave.  Science has proven this by measuring the stretching of the wavelength of the light of the sun compared to the wavelength or frequency of the same light created on earth [and they’re the same].  The results confirmed the predictions made by Einstein and by time-dilation.  In order to compare time today with time at the Big Bang, and the passage of time between then and now, there has to be a source of light which exists today that also existed at the time of the Big Bang.  This light source was found in 1964, by accident, when two astronomers discovered what is called Cosmic Background Radiation, or CBR.  This is a residual radiation left over from the time of the Big Bang.  And it fills all space today as it did then.  The property of the CBR that makes it the perfect Cosmic clock is the change that has occurred in the wavelength of the decaying acts when matter was first formed following the Big Bang and now.  At the Big Bang moment the temperature in that initial plasma mass was nearly 11 trillion degrees, and the frequency of what is now the CBR corresponded.  The original frequency of the CBR was some 3 trillion cycles per second. As the universe cooled and expanded, space stretched, and with it, the wavelength of the CBR.  Today that CBR has cooled to only 2.75 degrees Kelvin, and the wavelength is some 3 cycles per second.  The ticking of this Cosmic clock has slowed from some 3 trillion cycles per second to 3 cycles per second.  The stretching of space-time, as the universe expanded, in turn stretched the distance between the wave-crests of the CBR.  The passage of time just after the Big Bang occurred at a rate one trillion times faster than it does today.  So God telling the story of the first six days to Moses, he was telling it from his frame of reference.  He told it based on the passage of time reflected by the Cosmic clock.  God related to Moses what happened on each of the six days of Genesis 1 based on the passage of time as calculated by the Cosmic clock as it recorded the passage of time as it occurred.  There is a simple formula that can be used to break the rate-of-change in the passage of Cosmic time into steps.  But in doing this, this rate-of-change, the amount of time passing will be seen from our local frame of reference, or perspective, here on earth today, in the future.  We will be looking back in time, measuring time by our clocks today.  Our clocks are running a trillion times slower than the Cosmic clock just after the Big Bang.  With every doubling in the size of the universe, from the instant of the Big Bang until the time of Adam, the stretching of the wavelength of the CBR reflects the slowing of the passage of time by one half.  Obviously each doubling in the size of the universe takes longer than the previous doubling, each doubling expansion has twice as far to go. 

 

Breaking These Doubling Expansions Into Six Logarithmic Steps

 

Now we are going to break this universe expansion up into six steps.  We’re calling these steps “P.O.T.S.” or POTS.  It’s a termed we coined meaning “Passages Of Time.”  Each POT reflects the passage of time from the Big Bang to now, with each of the six doublings of the size of the universe, and a trillion times stretching in the size of the universe.  The first of these six POTS, looking back and based on our time today, would reflect the passage of 8 billion years. 

 

          Passage Of Time, POT 1:  8,000,000,000 years

 

During this POT the universe expands, space & time stretched a trillion times.  Looking at the increasing wavelength or distance between crests of the CBR light-wave, as you would the stretching of a “slinkey” toy, the extended distance between the coils of the “slinkey” indicating that stretch.  The events of that first POT, these events, described in their original time, from God’s frame of reference, would be one day.  But as Albert Einstein looks back, he sees those events from the perspective of today’s clock, a clock that runs a trillion times slower than the original Cosmic clock at the start of the Big Bang.  He sees the events of the unfolding of the passage of 8 billion years, which reflects the stretching of space & time.  With an adjustment of the logarithmic scale, the second of the POTs would reflect the passage of 4 billion years.

 

          Passage Of Time, POT 2:  4,000,000,000 years

 

And POT 3, 2 billion years, and POT 4, 1 billion years, and POT 5, 500 million years, and POT 6, 250 million years.  Out of the length of time reflected by these 6 POTs, as seen from our perspective, we have,

 

POT 1 = 8,000,000,000 years

POT 2 = 4,000,000,000 years

POT 3 = 2,000,000,000 years

POT 4 = 1,000,000,000 years

POT 5 =    500,000,000 years

POT 6 =    250,000,000 years

Total    15,750,000,000 years

 

And you have 15.75 billion years as the age of our universe---or six days, as measured by the Cosmic clock.  And this is a scientific observation, based on proven science reflecting the same period of time as it occurred in the two different frames of reference, the time as it unfolded on the Cosmic clock, and the amount of time as measured by today’s clocks, measured by today’s computation.  What God described to Moses and Moses described to the next person using the passage of time are from  different frames of reference, different perspectives.  It’s sort of like taking a spaceship near the Event Horizon of a black hole to make a scientific observation.  The ship, as it records time onboard, near the Event Horizon spends an hour there.  While another spaceship, in deep space where gravity is nill, marks the passage of thousand of years, before the other ship returns.  Remember, huge gravity wells, like black holes, slow the passage of time, just like the stretching of the universe slows time.  So the first POT, from God’s frame of reference took one day, from Moses and our frame of reference it took 8 billion years.  As the universe doubled in size, the second POT as seen from God’s frame of reference took another day, and as seen from Moses perspective on earth, it took 4 billion years.

 

Comparing The Events In The Six Days In Genesis 1 To What Happened During Each Of The Six POTs

 

Lets look at what science says happened at each of these POTs and compare them to the six days of Genesis.  Summarized:

The 1st day of Genesis, verses 1-5:  “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth, and the earth was without form and void, and the darkness was over the face of the deep.  And the Spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters.  And God said Let there be light.”  Are there some points that need to be clarified?  Three, really.  You need to understand something of Hebrew to understand the Book of Genesis.  First of all, in the ancient Hebrew language there is no word for universe.  Secondly, the waters are really representing everything that was.  And darkness was a symbol for a state of chaos.  Day one would have started 15.1 billion years ago and ended 7.75 billion years ago.  [The 8 billion, 4 billion, 2 billion, 1 billion POTs are rounded off figures.]  What does science say happened on earth during this time period?  At the instant of the Big Bang, everything that would ever be, everything that would constitute quarks, protons, neutrons, electrons from which everything that now exists, as well as time & space itself were created.  The earth only existed in the form of star dust that would later congeal into the planet.  As to the first “Let there be light” you need to go back to your Big Bang video [shown in the movie] and correct something.  The name Big Bang conjures up the impression of this brilliant explosion and flash of light, like an atomic bomb going off.  That’s how this event is generally pictured.  But it’s not accurate.  From the initial moment of Creation and as the universe initially expanded, it was a ball of plasma of such incredible heat and density and gravitational forces that no light could have escaped.  Initially there was no light at all, just a swirling opaque mass of pure energy.  It was only when this primordial, primal mass had cooled and expanded to a point where the gravitational forces were reduced enough to permit electromagnetic radiation to escape, that there would have been light.  So was “Let there be light” during this first 8 billion year-day a separate event from the initial creation in both the Bible and science?  Yes, and during the remainder of that first 8 billion year period, the early stars and galaxies formed.

Day two, Genesis 1:6-8:  Day two, the heavens as we know them were created, and the chaos that would eventually become the earth was separated from the rest of creation. Cosmic clock, day two, what happened during this period?  Our own galaxy, the Milky Way formed, as did our sun and planet earth in its earliest incarnation.  [3.75 billion years to 1.75 billion years, approximately] 

Day three, Genesis 1:9-13:  (From Genesis) The oceans and the dry land appeared as well as the first forms of plant life.  Now we switch to the arena of paleontology.  What does science say about what happened on earth between 1.75 billion years ago and 750,000,000 years ago?  Well, some 1.75 billion years ago the earth cooled, liquid water formed, almost immediately.  The first plant and animal life, photosynthetic bacteria and algae appeared. 

Day four, Genesis 1:14-19:  (From Genesis) The sun, moon and stars appeared.  Same time period, 750 million years to 500,000 years.  Paleontologist:  Well, initially in the first part of this period, the atmosphere on earth would have been nearly opaque.  Then with the rising concentrations of oxygen the atmosphere would have become translucent, and then the sun, moon and stars would have appeared for the first time from the surface of the earth. 

Day five, Genesis 1:20-23:  (From Genesis) Life is created in the oceans, and the first reptiles and birds appear.  Paleontologist:  750 million years ago to 250 million years ago.  Well initially sea-life would have been dominant, then came the Cambrian Explosion about 530 million years ago, when every species of land animal literally appeared at the same time.  So, instead of like a tree of life, it was more like a bush of life. 

Day six, Genesis 1:24-27:  (From Genesis) The land animals became dominant, and God created man in his own image.  Paleontology and science:  250,000,000 years ago until the appearance of Adam.  Well 250 million years ago there was a mass extinction, 90 percent of life on earth died, followed by a rapid repopulation, land animals now predominating.  That was the Permian-Triassic event.  Depending on how you defined them, there have been between 5 and 20 E.L.E.s or Extinction Level Events (like in the movie Deep Impact but worse).  Anyway, about 35 million years later, around 250,000,000 years ago, the dinosaurs appeared and dominated life on earth for about 150,000,000 years.  Then 65,000,000 years ago another E.L.E. occurred, this one known as the KT Extinction, which killed off the dinosaurs. [Comment: Some think all life on the planet, down to the plankton level in the world’s oceans was killed off during this KT extinction level event.  But according to recent paleontological evidence, not all life died off during the KT-barrier extinction level event.  See http://www.unityinchrist.com/dinosaurs/dinosaurs.htm, which describes this E.L.E.  Some believe the E.L.E.’s point to specific creations and recreations of life on earth, plural, and not necessary macro evolution of the various species.  More on this difference of opinion later.]  And this opened the way for mammals and birds to become dominant, and then the first hominids, and finally human beings as we know them appeared.  Today the Cosmic clock continues to tick to measure the passage of time at the Cosmos level.  And as the universe continues to expand, the rate at which it measures time continues to slow.  But that doesn’t mean anything to us now.  From the moment God breathed life into Adam and when God gave man his soul, we on earth have denoted the passage of time by our earth-based clocks, where one second is part of one day, which reflects the rotation of earth on it’s axis, and a year that marks the completion of one earth circuit of the sun.  What if there isn’t any God?  The idea that Moses or anyone else at the time Genesis was written, when most people believed the world was flat, that could have created a story that so perfectly reflects what science has proven to be true, all on its secular own (without God), to believe that, for me anyway, is harder then to believe in God.  What we are talking about here today is a result of applying proven science to the issue.  This is a scientifically derived answer to the question with no spin or subjective interpretation.  So you see, science and it’s 15.75 billion years and the six days of Genesis are in complete accord.  Science has proven what religious leaders have been unable to prove for thousands of years.  But in reality science has just caught up with the truth of the Bible.  Science has simply deciphered the Genesis code. 

 

I think what I find most amazing about this is the uncanny brilliance of Biblical Genesis, which is presented to us in such a way that mankind had to evolve to its current level before we were able to understand the story as it was originally written.  That’s it!”

The Genesis 1:1-31 Six Literal Day Template (The Gap Theory)

 

How do we reconcile the Periods of Time (POTs), Epochs, previously explained in The Genesis Code section before this, with the apparent literal creation of all the animal and plant life, and ocean life that we see on earth today, the life that is relevant to man, what mankind has been familiar with for the past 6,000 years of his written history?  First, we must come to see that Genesis 1:1-31 is a “Template” which can be used for the larger explanation given to us in The Genesis Code, involving epoch-length periods of time, taking into account Einstein’s Relativity-based time dilation laws, and also this template can be used for a literal six-day creation.  If one assumes that all life died during these E.L.E.s, then one would have to assume that specific creations took place throughout all the larger epochs, usually after an E.L.E., extinction level event had occurred.  After the massive and all-encompassing KT extinction level event, God certainly could have started another creation of his, which specifically fit the six literal day “Genesis 1:1-31 Template” (assuming all life did die off during the KT-barrier extinction level event).  This is what has been termed “the Gap Theory,” which is a fairly recent (100 years or more) explanatory theory to take into account the geologic record that the earth and heavens are much, much older than 6,000 years.  This Gap Theory allows the literal six-day creation of all the plant and animal life man is now familiar with, this “template,” to fit neatly inside the larger template, the epoch-sized one, including the POTs taking us through the 15.75 billion years of the universe’s existence.  One fits right within the other like those Russian dolls go inside one another.  I will now proceed to show you how this is possible.  What follows is the Gap Theory explanation for Genesis 1:1-31. 

 

What Do The E.L.E’s Show Us, According To Those Who Promote ‘the Gap Theory’?

 

[Now this is written from the Gap Theorist’s point of view.  You can read it if you like, to understand where they are coming from.  I currently hold to the third explanation, which follows this one, and that is the evidence for Theistic Evolution of the Species.  Take your pick, we’ll all learn how specifically God created life, after Jesus Christ’s 2nd coming.]

 

“But first we must establish something.  What do these E.L.E.’s, extinction level events, show us?  They throw a huge monkey-wrench into the theory of evolution, and the KT-barrier E.L.E. conclusively does this.  For all life to have been wiped out, right down to the plankton and single-celled life-forms on land and sea, and then for the sudden appearance of different life-forms within a period of time viewed as insufficient for the evolutionary process spells the deathblow for evolutionary theory.  Does the geologic record back up what I have just said?  I will give just two quotes, in the interest of brevity.  “The history of most fossil species includes two features particularly inconsistent with gradualism [gradual evolution from one species to another]:  [1] Stasis.  Most species exhibit no directional [evolutionary] change during their tenure on earth.  They appear in the fossil record looking pretty much the same as when they disappear; morphological [anatomical or structural] change is usually limited and directionless.  [2] Sudden appearance.  In any local area, a species does not arise gradually by the steady transformation of its ancestors: it appears all at once and ‘fully formed.’” (“Evolution’s Erratic Pace,” Natural History, May 1977, pp. 13-14, emphasis added).  Francis Hitching, a member of the Prehistoric Society and the Society for Physical Research has this to say, “There are about 250,000 different species of fossil plants and animals in the world’s museums,”  “This compares with about 1.5 million species known to be alive on Earth today.  Given the known rates of evolutionary turnover, it has been estimated that at least 100 times more fossil species have lived than have been discovered…But the curious thing is that there is a consistency about the fossil gaps: the fossils go missing in all the important places.  When you look for links between major groups of animals, they simply aren’t there; at least, not in enough numbers to put their status beyond doubt.  Either they don’t exist at all, or they are so rare that endless argument goes on about whether a particular fossil is, or isn’t, or might be transitional between this group and that…There ought to be cabinets full of intermediates---indeed, one would expect the fossils to blend so gently into one another that it would be difficult to tell where the invertebrates ended and the vertebrates began.  But this isn’t the case.  Instead, groups of well-defined, easily classifiable fish jump into the fossil record seemingly from nowhere:  mysteriously, suddenly, full-formed, and in a most unDarwinian way.  And before them are maddening, illogical gaps where their ancestors should be.” (The Neck of the Giraffe: Darwin Evolution and the New Biology, 1982, pp. 9-10, emphasis added.)

 

The KT-Barrier Extinction-Level Event

 

Now getting back to where we were in Genesis 1:1, the record of the rocks shows that after these two global-killer asteroids hit, huge clouds of dust, volcanic smoke, ash and debris filled the skies, blocking out all light.  Geologic record shows 500,000 years of serious volcanic activity on the Indian sub-continent right after the KT-barrier E.L.E.  Anything that survived the those two huge blasts and resultant shock waves of searing steam and heat, and oncoming tidal waves flying out from the blast sites for hundreds, even thousands of miles, and then buckling the Earth’s crust creating volcanic eruptions and fissures around the world---the life that was left alive---plant life from giant Cycads down to the tiny diatoms, plankton and single-celled life stopped photosynthesizing and soon died.  Any dinosaurs that had survived died of starvation within weeks, on a darkened planet.  The huge chalk cliffs, the White Cliffs of Dover being just one example, are dead diatoms, nannoplankton, piled high, from the K/T Barrier E.L.E. dated 65 million years ago.  For a complete description of this event, including geologic proofs, see, http://www.unityinchrist.com/dinosaurs/dinosaurs.htm.

 

Six Literal Day “Template” For Genesis 1:1-31

 

So, fitting the Genesis 1:1-31 “template” into the timeframe of the KT-barrier E.L.E. to present, and seeing clearly in the geologic record that specific “creations” of animal, dinosaur and what not, and plant life have come and gone (via the E.L.E’s), with no sign of evolutionary processes involved, let’s now look at Genesis 1:1-31 starting from that frame of reference. “In the beginning God created [Hebrew: bara, to create from nothing] the heaven and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)  God created the heavens and the earth, and we saw how this was done in the Genesis Code section via the Big Bang 15.75 billion years ago.  But then, using this as a template for the time from the KT-barrier E.L.E. to now, Genesis 1 now shows us “And the earth was [can also be translated became] without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.  And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” (Genesis 1:2)  This would show us that huge KT-barrier E.L.E. had taken place.  Nothing lived, the geologic record shows us that.  Now lets see what God did.  So in Genesis 1:2a+b we see “Now the earth became formless [Hebrew tohuw] and empty [bohuw], and darkness was upon the face of the deep.” So the earth is in darkness, and as we’ve seen, this darkness could have lasted for millions of years.  Then God steps in (as he’s obviously done after the past E.L.E.’s). “And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” (verse 2b)  So the earth is in darkness under this thick cloud of debris and volcanic ash, and the Spirit of God, it says, is hovering over the waters.  God is ready at this point in time to start re-creating new life-forms.  Let’s continue reading and see what happens.  Remember the paleontologists quoted in the article “The Day the Dinosaurs Died” said, “It was as if a huge curtain was wrung down on the Dinosaurs, and when it lifted the whole stage had changed.  Nothing of the Dinosaur age was to be seen.  Now everything that had to do with man and man himself was on the stage, and reptiles were mere supernumeraries [bit part actors].”   

 

Day One

 

“And God said, Let there be light:  and there was light.  And God saw the light, that it was good:  and God divided the light from the darkness.  And God  called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night.  And the evening and the morning were the first day.” (Genesis 1:3-5)  And don’t forget, if God could create the whole universe, and create species suddenly, as the geologic record shows, this could have been done in six days, whether they were time-dilated days from the KT-barrier event to now or not.  On the first “day” of reforming earth’s surface God introduces periods of night and day by clearing away much of the smoke, ash and atmospheric debris that was blocking all light from the planet, enough so night and day were now discernable from each other.  Thus a little light came through to earth for the first time since the KT-barrier E.L.E.  Before this partial clearing of this huge cloud barrier no light, neither sunlight, moon light nor starlight had come through. 

 

Day Two

 

“And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.  And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament:  and it was so.  And God called the firmament Heaven.  And the evening and the morning were the second day.” (Genesis 1:6-8)  On this second day God had to clean up the atmosphere, which remember, was filled with all kinds of deadly volcanic gases and ash.  He may have even recreated the atmosphere as it is now, 78 percent nitrogen, oxygen 21 percent, CO-2 at a safe level of 0.4 percent, a healthy combination of gases suitable to man.  I think before the KT-extinction oxygen levels may have been a bit higher, and maybe C0-2 levels as well.  The atmosphere had to be suitable for the new re-creation of life on this planet, life as we know it now. 

 

Day Three

 

“And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear:  and it was so.  And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering of the waters called he Seas:  and God saw that it was good.  And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth:  and it was so.  And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind:  and God saw that it was good.  And the evening and the morning were the third day.” (Genesis 1:9-13)  Remolding of the earth’s crust would have taken place here, separating the seas from dry land, probably continent reformation.  We know continents existed 65 million years ago, even parts of the North American continent, but even large parts of that continent were underwater.  So the continents probably as we know then now were formed.  Then God, as we’ve seen in the geologic record, suddenly created all the interrelated plant species, vegetation---trees, bushes, flowers, grass, grains of all types---everything that could grow out of the ground.  But these plants were now suitable to the animals God would create, and man himself, and not the dinosaur species that had gone before. 

 

Day Four

 

“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:  and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth:  and it was so.  And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night; he made the stars also.  And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness:  and God saw that it was good.  And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.” (Genesis 1:14-19)  On this fourth day God cleared away the last remaining dust from the sky, thus letting the sun, moon and stars become visible for the first time in millions of years. 

 

Day Five

 

“And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.  And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind:  and God saw that it was good.  And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let the fowl multiply in the earth.  And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.” (Genesis 1:20-23)  On this 5th day God created all the species of fish we see in today’s oceans, rivers and lakes, both freshwater and saltwater varieties.  He also created all aquatic mammals.  God also created on this day all the various bird species.  In time the seas and skies were swarming with living creatures, all adapted for the age of man, and not the dinosaur age.  The progression described in Genesis 1 fits what all these species would need.  First, the atmosphere cleared up and made suitable for life (day one and two).  The second essential thing, making continents, dry land and creating all the vegetation on them, and areas for the seas to be contained in, for the sea creatures to live in, right down to essential atmosphere-C0-2 scrubbing diatoms and plankton, to the largest of whales, and continents for all the plant life to start growing on (day three).  Then a final clearing away of the atmosphere, to allow full photosynthesis to take place for healthy living of all the plant species just created.  This would have made the sun, moon and stars visible (day four).  And as we have just seen, on day five, all the life in the world’s oceans, rivers and lakes was created.  You can see, each phase follows the necessary pattern that would support life, as designed by a master bio-engineer, God.  Now we’re ready for day six.

 

Day Six

 

“And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind:  and it was so.  And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind:  and God saw that it was good.  And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:  and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it:  and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.  And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.  And so to every beast of the earth, and to fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat:  and it was so.  And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.  And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” (Genesis 1:24-31)  As seen by the text, God created all the interrelated animal species, and insect species necessary for healthy plant life in today’s ecosystem.  Everything mankind would need to sustain him on the planet was now in existence.   So, finally, at the end of this day, God creates mankind through Adam and Eve.  It’s interesting, through the Human Genome Project, where the entire DNA and gene sequences for mankind have been mapped out (and the guy who did it became a Christian believer from an atheist), all of mankind has been traced to a single small lineage, which of course points to Adam.  The man who headed this project was Francis Collins, former atheist and currently the director of the National Human Genome Research Institute.

 

Was It Six Days or 16 Billion Years?

 

There are many fine men of God who teach that the earth is young, having only been created less than 10,000 years ago.  One of their strong arguments in favour of a young earth comes from Exodus 20:11, which states, “For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them.”  But as we have seen, six days by whose “frame of reference”?  If it’s from God’s frame of reference, outside of Space & Time, taking into account Einstein’s Laws of Relativity and Time Dilation, we have clearly seen those six days amounted to 15.75 billion years as observed from our frame of reference, but not God’s.  According to those who promote ‘the Gap Theory,’ a whole series of “re-creations” of life have taken place after the huge E.L.E.’s had destroyed it from off the planet.  So we see that according this Gap Theory, a specific 6-day recreation of life can easily have taken place, using Genesis 1:1-31 as a template for the literal six-day creation account as well.  One template, the smaller 6-literal-day recreation, fits neatly within, inside the larger template for Genesis 1, that of the 6 P.O.T.’s, or epochs, which add up to 15.75 billion years.  There is one more theory that fits this Time Dilation, Genesis Code explanation, and it is well worth a look at.  

 

 

A Third Explanation That Fits “the Genesis Code” Time Dilation Formula For Six Days

 

A friend of mine who is both a scientist, science writer, and also a Christian writer, has seen clear and newly discovered fossil evidence that not all life died off during the extensive KT-barrier extinction level event, and that many transition fossils have been discovered recently from that period to our present age.  This friend likes to follow paleontologists around on their digs, looking over their shoulders, learning about all their newest discoveries.  He is leaning toward Theistic Evolution of the Species.  Yes, because cellular level of life is so very complex, the start-up of life on earth points to a Creator carrying out specific creation of cellular life and early life in the Devonian Seas, somewhere over 2 billion years ago.  Dr. Michael Behe, a PhD level micro-micro bio-chemist whose research has taken him down to the atomic structure of cellular life, wrote the masterful work Darwin’s Black Box.  His book clearly shows that blind evolution of life at the cellular level is impossible.  But the record of the rocks shows an evolutionary process has occurred from the period of the Devonian Seas over 2 billion years ago, to the present.  One points to specific creation at the cellular level, the other points to evolution of the Species.  My friend is writing, and about to publish, a book with his findings, so I will not reveal his name at present.  So, what does this evidence show, both from the extremely complex cellular level, and the evidence of the record of the rocks, which paleontologists are continually uncovering?  For one, the super-complexity of cellular structure goes solidly against any blind evolution at the cellular level.  It points directly to specific creation of life at the cellular level.  Combining this with the fossil evidence that cellular life, yes, complex as it is, occurred in the Devonian Seas well over 2 billion years ago, and let’s see what we get.  If blind evolution is just not possible, taking in the study of the laws of averages, and the complexity of life at the cellular level, what’s left for an explanation?  What the fossil evidence is beginning to reveal, that from this “start-up of life” in the early seas (composed of complex cellular life), the higher life-forms “evolved” by intelligent flipping of “gene-switches,” bringing about an “evolutionary” change within the species extant, from then to now.  My friend is writing a scientific book about this process, including much of the newly discovered fossil evidence supporting Theistic Evolution of the Species.  The movie The Genesis Code follows this reasoning, viewing the six days of Creation given in Genesis 1 from God’s perspective, outside of Space-Time (15.75 billion years anyone?).  So, from what I see in Behe’s book is that creation of cells, due to their extreme internal complexity, point to a very specific initial creation of life in the Devonian Seas, over 2 billion years ago.  But from there, cells became the “Legos” of creation, God working with them, modifying them genetically, to create and recreate all living species to suit whatever epoch they were living in, modifying these “Legos” themselves, and thus the animal and plant species that contained them.  The sophistication of these species, to say nothing of the sophistication and complexity of DNA and cellular structure, cannot have been brought about by what evolutionists call “blind evolution.”  It had to have been brought about through Divine evolution, planned out, engineered in advance, by what many are now calling ID, Intelligent Design, but evolution nonetheless.  Darwin saw it, but lacked the proper fossil evidence to clearly prove it.  Now we are becoming witness to a myriad of new connective fossil discoveries, what evolutionists in my old biology textbooks called “the Missing Links.”  To me, the idea of Theistic Evolution presented here involves a far more complex operation of creation than a whole bunch of “specific creations” purported by the Gap Theory proponents.  Theistic evolution also demonstrates God’s continuing creative hand in the process of life, from the very beginning (billions of years ago) to the end, right up to the creation of mankind and all the related flora and fauna we’re familiar with.  Ask a geneticist, if you know any, what kind of complexities would be involved in such an operation.  When you really think about it, theistic evolution really seems to fit the Genesis Code scenario far better than trying to get the Gap Theory to fit into it.  But truth, real truth, in any subject, Biblical, scientific, both combined, must be based on solid empirical evidence.  The record of the rocks was not created by God as some divine falsehood.  The Word of God and scientific evidence must agree with each other.  And when they don’t appear to, it is simply because we have not yet discovered enough evidence, as Relativity and the Genesis Code has clearly shown us, that mankind did not have the proper scientific evidence or understanding until just recently to understand “the six days” of creation.  I can’t wait to see the next batch of evidence to surface, hopefully in my friend’s forthcoming book.  When it gets published, soon hopefully, I will advertise it right here, and we can take a fresh look at more evidence.
