The Bible clearly teaches that God created the world in six literal 24-hour days. It also plainly teaches that God destroyed the world with a global flood in the days of Noah. I therefore believe in “young earth creation” and teach accordingly.
As I was growing up, the public school system indoctrinated me into believing the universe was billions of years old and that life just happened by chance. I studies evolution all the way through college as a Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry major at Yale University. One year after graduating, I heard the gospel and trusted Jesus as my personal savior.
I quickly realized that what the Bible teaches about the origin of life and the universe, and what evolution teaches, are completely different and incompatible. I needed to reconcile my science background with my new faith in the Bible, so I started studying creation science. I read “The Genesis Flood” by John Whitcomb and Henry Morris. This book along with many others demonstrated that the global flood explains the geology of the earth much better than uniformitarianism.
The more I studied, the more I realized the truth of Romans 1:18-20:
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,
because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them.
For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. (NASB)
And the list could keep on going.
