The creation account of the book of Genesis, although firmly outside the contemporary “Overton window” of permissible public discourse, remains the only major alternative explanation to the reigning big bang/evolution paradigm with regard to origins. The weakness of the latter position, in addition to myriad scientific problems (What banged? Where did the genetic code come from?), is its philosophical incoherence (something from nothing, truth from chemical reactions). Nonetheless, many scholars have attempted to harmonize the two. In previous decades, attempts at rapprochement have generally been lexical/textual, in more recent times, the movement has been more “metatextual” (genre studies, audience relevance, authorial intent). This talk provides a survey of contemporary positions on the Genesis creation account.
This illustrated presentation was recorded at the 2016 Australian Creation SuperCamp in front of a live audience.
