I believe the Bible to be true. I also believe this world is incredible. I believe that God’s words are behind the creation of both the Bible and the world. I believe the Bible and the world go together… but sometimes I can’t get it all figured out.
My family went with some friends to Drumheller, Alberta this week. Drumheller is in a region where thousands of enormous dinosaur fossils have been found. There is a magnificent museum called the Royal Tyrell dedicated to the study and recovery of dinosaur fossils. The exhibits were so impressive, I found myself wondering how the dinosaurs and Scripture all fit together. I have some ideas, but they’re not conclusive. The drive to the museum and back home was rich with conversation about how the world came into being, when and how dinosaurs roamed about, and how human life began. It was a fascinating and brain-stimulating week. I am so impressed by God’s massive creativity!
So help me! How does all this fit together? How do humans and dinosaurs and the Bible and Creation and earth-age and evolution and fossilized ammonites all fit together? Do they? Have you heard or do you have any good opinions?
