This is a new and revised edition of The Science of Sacred Scripture.
Volume 2 from The Blue Prints for Life.
Our ancient stories remain the register of the earliest scientific observation and a kind of prehistoric sociology. These are the primal conclusions of experiment which made our very consciousness possible. The first people were probably more in tuned to the forces around them, less distracted and completely engrossed in observing their new world. They had to explain what they observed in ways that would remain comprehensible for generations to come. Their observations and experiences are coded in metaphors that science can now expound on. We can now read the bible as scientists and historians; with the understanding that the author, like a computer programmer laid out more in the records than clues to avoid viruses. Genesis 1 is the formula which relates to every living thing. It has been termed the “Blue Print for Life” because everything in the universe shares the same formulated beginning. In the beginning of the earth, a human or a cat we find one pattern which begins in a seeded state; and then an explosion transforms elements of the seed into various parts of the final structure. This is why everything was created from the beginning. The variations pre-existed in the seed, so that what we have defined as evolution is simply differentiation. The “days” of the formula relate to the stages for each type of being. In humans, 6 days represents just one stage of our development. It is the completion of the cellular stage where the differentiating roles have been assigned. Thus in 6 days we would not expect to find a baby, but the ‘beginning’ of a person and microscopic model of who he will be. From this stage the command is simple “be fruitful and multiply.” After continual multiplication of the divided and differentiated cells we finally achieve a human being. The basic terms of the bible are literally translated into scientific term so that we can understand the bible scientifically. Light for example, when applied to biology, relates to the eye or mind, in genetics ‘the body plan,’ in chemistry it may refer to mass or ignition in philosophy it may simply mean understanding or direction. In terms of perception almost imperceptible as a light touch. Also by divine inspiration the early scribes were caused to revere the name of God, which would have served to personify him. This gives us the ability to define the various roles of “God” scientifically as a directing force within life. In genetics he is the organizer responsible for directing the orders for the body plans or designs. In chemistry we understand that the biblical definition for God is the same as the scientific definition for energy thus the 7 spirits of God are the 7 periods of energy on earth. Then the cosmological description of the beginning, tells us that in the beginning God created heaven and earth, from a vacuum of dark energy, and in a big bang like explosion, there was light, ergo the ‘beginning’. This description may have been vague, but clearly predicted the failure of the static universe first proposed by Einstein. We now append the seemingly vacuous description of the beginning by infusing the simplistic form of Genesis with our understanding of its terms in science. But if all of this still seems a bit circumstantial, in the study of genetics we discover that on the sixth day God created MAN not humans, but the head of what we now call our Hominidae group. Then he created ADAM or humans, scientifically defined as Homo Sapien or “wise” men. The attainment of wisdom is the first mutation or curse. When we replace the term curse with mutation, it outlines every single differentiating feature between humans and their original primate ancestor. This code ripples through every phenomenon and takes science to an advanced level where our biologists can see the cosmos as one living organism and our cosmologist can identify nuclear fusion with a microscopic lens in the study of cells and finally our Theologians can explain the science of creation.
