This question has been plaguing me ever since I have stepped back into religion. And really is the reason why I started the blog. But I feel as though this has been somewhat answered for me now through my class. These are my conclusions…Creation is not really a story of how the world came to be but a story that is told so that we have to learn from it. I believe now that science and religion answer different questions. Science answers the question of “How we came to be?” Religion answers “How powerful is God?” How humans try to come grips with Genesis is to put it into a historical context. When the author’s of Genesis wrote they did not think in terms of history, they just used images that people could relate to, to understand God’s power. So, it is not Creation vs Big Bang it Big Band and the Creation of God’s Power.
