“Recognizing the importance of the creation debate, I wanted to provide answers to friends and relatives who had questions about creation,” explains author Anthony L. Edridge, who compares a number of diverse views about Genesis with Biblical and scientific evidence. His research on creation became the basis for his new book, “After the Beginning: Creation Revealed in Science and Scripture” (published by WestBow Press).
“After the Beginning” explains how the creation story in Genesis is consistent with scientific research on the age of the Earth, based on Hebrew texts and disciplined methods of interpretation. It also describes how the creation story in Genesis reveals God’s plan to create a loving, eternal and intimate relationship with people.
“Creation is shown to offer a better explanation for the origin of life than unlikely chemical interactions,” Edridge explains. “By re-using exquisitely designed complex mechanisms in living cells, God created countless new species until He finished with His masterpiece, mankind. Conversely, evolution is unable to overcome the contradictory requirements for life to begin from random events. Moreover, living cells exhibit numerous processes designed to prevent mutation into significantly different species.”
His new catastrophic flood model provides an explanation of how Mesopotamia was flooded to a depth of about 1000 feet at the end of the ice age, and he proposes a unique Biblical mechanism that caused the floodwater to subside.
