Hello, my name is Ed and I welcome you to this web site and I hope that you enjoy your visit. The purpose for these pages is to examine the creation/evolution controversy in a slightly different light. I am a Christian of evangelical persuasion who is seeking to understand the truth of both science and the Bible. I do hope that my journey has taught me to be more objective and open minded. I confess that I am one who was bound by the traditions of men and that I had to discover the hard way how to be cautious, and to listen to all sides of a debate before reaching any conclusions.

I pray for God's help, and I pray that all those who have been dogmatic on these issues would please - carefully investigate the so-called opposition. That they would allow the Word of God as well as the works of God to speak clearly and freely and that they would be guarded from the persuasiveness of men. I offer my regrets to the many who have been convinced that only one interpretation of the Genesis account is possible and that this interpretation alone is equal to orthodoxy.

The dilemma resides in our understanding of the methods and purpose of God's creation as explained in the book of Genesis. Did God create the universe in six 24-hour days, in six eons, or is there an undetermined gap of time in the creation account? How do we explain the many apparent contradictions between the Bible and science? Is biological evolution a possibility? Some evolution between species maybe? Is Adam the first that we would label Homo sapiens sapiens? Did he evolve from lower primates or did God create him from the dust of the earth? Was the Ark that Noah built the salvation of every creature, with the breath of life, on the entire face of the world? Or was the Flood more contained to the land that Adam's children called home?

My goal is simply to create an awareness that there is more than one answer to our queries without wandering from orthodoxy. This site is not at all comprehensive and I am sure I will stir up more questions than I will answer. I am neither a scientist nor a theologian, yet I know God's love and I wish to give Him the glory. What I share here is my experience and where that has led me. My target is the Christian who finds themselves bewildered by the apparent discrepancies we encounter daily in the world. My hope is to build a bridge of peace while compromising neither the Bible nor the majesty of our Lord Jesus Christ.

So, please look around, and drop me a line okay?
