Scientists have announced the discovery of "the missing link" in human evolution. I don't claim to be an expert, but their conclusions seem desperate to me. However, I will say this: My faith in Scripture does not hinge on the rules established by the radical fundamentalists who say that Genesis 1 speaks of literal 24-hour days. The Hebrew word translated "day" is not limited to such an interpretation. And the section is written in a very poetic style. Moses was not writing a geology book, but the drama of God's pursuit of humanity.
For those whom I have already seen commenting about us stupid Christians who believe in a book of fairy tales, I would say this: How did Moses, writing in 1500 BC, know the order of creation? No one in science proposed such things for another millennium or more. His order is in agreement even with the order evolutionists say things evolved.
I wish we could stop with this "science vs. God's Word" war. It is a war that is being waged by the extremes of both systems. Moderate scientists as well as moderate Christians can actually see the beautiful agreement between the two. A good read on this subject is Lee Strobel's A Case for a Creator.
How does this recent discovery affect your faith?
