If you’ve followed this blog for a while, you have probably noticed that I have a unique perspective when it comes to presenting my faith and how I understand the Bible.
I am strong on inspiration and inerrancy of Scripture. I just am not willing to place my eggs in the basket of a particular translation, or our modern understanding of the words chosen by the translators, which is why I have, from time to time, produced careful yet easy to understand exegesis of key texts that are often twisted in an attempt to make twist it (here, here, and here for example). And there’s no more misunderstood and misrepresented text than the flood account found in Genesis 6-11, and I’ve written about it.
Skeptics often claim that it never occurred. However, if we actually think about what the ancients wrote, with and they seemed to write an awful lot, and think logically not with an a priori dismissive attitude, but actually look at the evidence, especially what we are finding in the ancient near east in regards to archaeology and geography, an I recently discovered a video produced by someone who seems to have done some homework and presents some compelling evidence and arguments. I will say that I disagree with some of his assumptions, especially the fact that he’s a theistic evolutionist, but he’s up front and honest and, as far as I can tell, he doesn’t let them override his presentation.
Watch, listen, examine for yourself.
