A wonderful man, a friend indeed, came and sat down next to me after church last Sunday, and cheered my heart.
In a round about way, he had seen my post lamenting that young earth creationism seems to carry the day in our church. He came to tell me that he agrees with me that only a closed mind could fail to see that there are other ways God might have created besides the one that requires rigidly literal interpretation of Genesis 1.
So, there are at least two of us at church. That encourages me.
He also recommended to me to works of Hugh Ross, who had previously been cited in something I read. I need to look into it. Ross’s entry into the discussion is from the side of hard physical science, which is my own background. I’ve read plenty of stuff from biologists, but a physicist would take a different approach, I think.
