We dispel the common notion that the Bible is scientifically inaccurate and full of myths and legends. In fact, the opposite is true. On this website, we primarily explore Genesis 1 for our example. There are two keys to understanding Genesis 1 from the viewpoint of science.
Once these two key points are understood, then there is excellent harmony between the descriptions in Genesis 1 and the way that science now describes changes that the earth went through for the past 4.5 billion years. Please note that the description in Genesis 1 was written over 3000 years ago. But the scientific findings have only been discovered over the last several hundred years. That these two descriptions are in harmony strongly suggests that the One who guided the writing of the Bible and the Creator of the universe are indeed one and the same! The truth of the harmony between Genesis 1 and the findings of recent science is certainly a profound truth that is worth deep and thoughtful consideration.

Every story has a point of view. The key to harmonizing Genesis 1 with science is the point of view provided in Genesis 1:2.Note that the Spirit of God is depicted as a bird of fire in the illustrations above.
Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. (NIV)From this point of view, Day 1 through Day 6 of creation are told from the Spirit's perspective hovering over the face of the earth.
Every one of the following groups has some solid truths guiding them. If you are in one of these groups, would you be willing to consider another aspect of the truth?
