SCENCO/ AR27 Group 4

Listed are some arguments that the group came into conclusion upon: • the earth already existed, but had passed into decay during an earlier age of existence, and was now being "shaped anew". This view is more consistent with mainstream science with respect to the age of the Earth, but still often resembles Young Earth creationism in many respects. (according to the theory of Gap creationism) another religious belief states that God allows certain natural process (such as gene mutation and natural selection) to affect the development of life, but has also directly intervened at key moments in life’s history to guide those processes or, in some views, create new species altogether (often to replenish the earth). This view of creationism allows for and accepts fluctuation within defined species but rejects transitional evolution as a viable mechanism to create a gradual ascent from unicellular organisms to advanced life. Also, it points to multiple destructive events in the Earth's history. another effort to reconcile the literal Genesis account of creation with modern scientific theories on the age of the universe, the Earth, life, and humans. It holds that the six days referred to in the Genesis account of creation are not ordinary 24-hour days, but rather are much longer periods The Genesis is then interpreted as an account of the process of cosmic evolution Everything we see, the Earth and the universe, were created by God 14 billion years ago.
