Accuracy in Genesis Translations
NEW Perspectives Affirming the Genesis Record, the Creation Story
Creation versus evolution is a very popular topic, is the Biblical creation record
( creationism ) true or not? Even many Christians see creationism as a nice story,
a "myth" to illustrate a philosophy, but
is not factual history. Then there are many forms of creationism, young earth
creationism, old earth creationism, theistic evolution creationism, etc., and then many branches
each category. Both Christianity, Judaism, Islam and a number of
smaller religions believe in a creation record, which all adds up to a large percentage
of the world's population that believe some form of creationism.
The validity of Christian creationism, and the accuracy of the Biblical translated creation record must hinge on
creditable demonstrations that the creation record is true and recent scientific and
archaeological discoveries demonstrate this creationism validity and accuracy. Much depends upon
proper translation and interpretation of the Masoretic Hebrew text of the creation story. And
demonstrating how the Biblical creation narrative is in accord with the latest scientific
discoveries concerning the universe its size, shape and beginnings. Also the latest discoveries of archaeology,
DNA genetic classifications and the proposed theories concerning how this solar system and the planet Earth
began, formed and changed over time. Young earth creation theories are shown to be invalid
by many scientific physical evidences that prove that the earth is indeed very old and how
the old earth interpetation of creationism as described in Genesis chapters one through eleven and various other Biblical
Scriptures accurately describe the progressive development of the earth from a dark and empty planet to
one abundantly populated by many life forms requiring solar energy. The climax being the creation of final
human life form which happened about 15,000 years ago and how the offspring of farmer Adam spread
over the surface of the planet and developed their farming, building, learning and scientific capabilities.
a) The Days of Genesis, the creation days as long time periods or phases and not 24 hours.
b) The Heavens, concerns the nature of the creation atmosphere.

l) How Much is All, concerns the Hebrew word "kol" or "kowl" translated as all, every, and whole in the flood story is actually a local description.
m) Chronology, the genealogies of the creation story were not intended for dating the age of the earth as many teachers of creationism declare.
n) Babel, the multiplication of the languages also illustrates the truth and accuracy of the Biblical record.
o) The location of Sodom and Gomorrah also validates the accuracy of the Hebrew Bible texts.
p) Dragons, Hebrew words that are translated as "Dragons"?
q) The nations, the ancient nations demonstrate the validity of creationism as told in the Hebrew records.
