Human Origins And The Bible: Solving the Genesis Population Problem

Most traditional evangelical Christians believe that Adam and Eve were the first (and at one point, the ONLY) human beings in existence in the relatively recent past. I count myself among them. I don’t “believe in” theistic evolution, and I also don’t “believe in” evolution in general. While things obviously evolve, any use of “evolution”…

The Coherent Creation Account of Genesis 1 and Genesis 2

Genesis 1 and 2 contain the creation account in the Bible. The problem is, they are quite different.

Weird Biblical Chronology – Where Did Noah Go In The Ark?

Noah “left the timeline” and “leaving the timeline” means that Noah went to heaven where he was not subject to the normal rules of time. I know how crazy this sounds, but I don’t care. I’m serious, and I’m going to defend it. By the end of this post, my goal is not for you to believe this is any less “crazy,” (because there’s no hope there). Instead, it is merely my goal to show that things that we know are crazy are not as implausible as we previously thought.
