092: No, Genesis 1 Does Not Answer the Age of the Earth Question

Jun 6, 2019 | Creation, Podcast

A couple of weeks ago, I interviewed Marc Lambert of the Hey, Pastor! Podcast on how to argue for young age creationism without an appeal to Genesis 1.

This was an eye-opening discussion for many, but the question was left open as to what Genesis 1 can actually tell us.

So I open this episode with some thoughts about what Genesis tells us given different understandings of its genre, and aim to show that our contention that Genesis 1 by itself does not answer the age of the earth question still stands.

This week’s questions::

  1. What is the genetic evidence for Adam and Eve?
  2. “The Bible doesn’t tell us the age of the universe!”
