Biblical Longevities: Empirical Data or Fabricated Numbers?

by Walter Makous

Whether the biblical longevities have biological or cultural significance depends on whether they represent actual longevities or are fabricated. As the properties of fabricated numbers differ from those of natural phenomena, this paper examines these properties, particularly in light of those differences. The results show (1) an exponential decline toward contemporary longevities, following approximate . . . → Read More: Biblical Longevities: Empirical Data or Fabricated Numbers?

Sediment Transport and the Coconino Sandstone: A Reality Check on Flood Geology

by Timothy K. Helble

The origin of a graphical procedure developed by a prominent Flood geologist to estimate the water depth and current speed associated with deposition of cross-bedded sandstones during a global Flood is examined. It is shown how this graphical pro- cedure was used to estimate a widely quoted depth and speed of Flood waters . . . → Read More: Sediment Transport and the Coconino Sandstone: A Reality Check on Flood Geology

Reading Scripture and Nature: Pentecostal Hermeneutics and Their Implications for the Contemporary Evangelical Theology and Science Conversation

by Amos Yong

This article recommends that more intentional focus on the theological character of the biblical message that involves the work of the Holy Spirit can be helpful in resisting the concordism, prevalent in some evangelical circles, that insists on harmonizing Scripture with science. Help in developing such an interpretive approach can be found, surprisingly, in . . . → Read More: Reading Scripture and Nature: Pentecostal Hermeneutics and Their Implications for the Contemporary Evangelical Theology and Science Conversation

After Adam: Reading Genesis in an Age of Evolutionary Science

by Daniel C. Harlow

Recent research in molecular biology, primatology, sociobiology, and phylogenetics indicates that the species Homo sapiens cannot be traced back to a single pair of individuals, and that the earliest human beings did not come on the scene in anything like paradisal physical or moral conditions. It is therefore difficult to read Genesis 1–3 as . . . → Read More: After Adam: Reading Genesis in an Age of Evolutionary Science

Recent Genetic Science and Christian Theology on Human Origins: An “Aesthetic Supralapsarianism”

by John R. Schneider

Recent genomic science strongly supports the theory of common ancestry. To classical Protestants, particularly, this theory seems incompatible with Scripture, most especially with the “historical Fall,” which Protestants presume to be manifestly biblical and so have cemented it securely into their confessions and theology as a whole. Nevertheless, John Schneider proposes that it . . . → Read More: Recent Genetic Science and Christian Theology on Human Origins: An “Aesthetic Supralapsarianism”
