Genesis 1 is the foundation for all things—including science. There are two approaches in interpreting events of the ancient past. Science that deals with past events is different than science done in present time. Yes, science that deals with past events requires interpretation. The understanding of any ancient past event is dependent on the assumptions that one takes into the interpretation of the data from the past. Secular science assumes naturalism’s assumptions and rejects biblical history when it deals with ancient past events. A biblical worldview uses the revelation of Scripture to interpret the physical data. So, how you view God and Scripture is key to how you interpret the scientific data, especially issues of creation and Genesis 1. These talks illustrate the foundational nature of Genesis 1 to all of science.
