The “Cosmogonic” Form of Genesis 1 (Part 1)

In both form and content, then, Genesis 1 reveals that its basic purposes are religious and theological, not scientific or historical.

We welcome this opportunity to clarify our positions and remove stumbling blocks where possible.

Though this term has been coined rather recently, it is associated with many other “isms” with long and turbulent histories: materialism, naturalism, reductionism, empiricism, and positivism.
