Genesis 1-11 Poetry, History, Science and Truth

Collins, John.jpg

Speaker: Jack Collins

How does Genesis 1-11 have and not have a bearing on science. Genesis 1-11 will be viewed in connection with other origin stories and as the front end of the worldview story. The idea of three different kinds of language from C.S. Lewis will be explored in relation to their application to Genesis 1-11. The idea of not being scientific will be contrasted with having no relevance to science. Poetic language will be shown as not the same as non-historical language.
