Creationism Vs Evolution and Dr. Hugh Ross
A friend of mine at church gave me a book recently titled "The Creator and the Cosmos" by Dr. Hugh Ross. I told him I would read it and would get it back to him within a few weeks. But, I was so interested in the book, I finished it in just 5 days. What an interesting read!
As a new Christian, I am definitely catching up on the nuts and bolts of things. For example, I had no opinion of creation beyond that I know Genesis says God created the heavens and the earth, etc. I just never thought much about it beyond that. Dr. Ross explains how many scientists (astronomers, physicists, et al) are believers in God and he explains why using scientific facts about our knowledge of the universe. In short, Dr. Ross, an astronomer himself, points out how famous scientists such as Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking are believers in God (not necessarily the Christian God, but they acknowledge a creator none-the-less).
I hope you will take the time to read this book. I can't tell you how the info in this book has resonated with me. I have a naturally curious mind and it was highly valuable to me to get a creationist perspective about the cosmos, our universe, our creator, evolution, etc.
You can hear Dr. Ross on YouTube discussing his belief in "old earth" creationism. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Ff1zF8svAY
