The preceding list of authors and references can be consulted, rather, easily by checking "THE GENESIS FLOOD" by Whitcomb and Morris. It is a highly documented work, and contains all the above references plus many more. It quotes the important points that these authors have made on this subject', and is a shortcut to many days of research.

There is no greater source of truth and revelation than THE BIBLE. Without it the world IS in utter darkness (ISA 60.2). Scientific research does not result in finding the basic TRUTHS (2 Tim. 3:7), like WHY is man here? TRUTH comes from God. (Dan. 2:21 Proverbs 2.6) and not from scientific discoveries. The only way to UNDERSTANDING & TRUTH is through God's revelation, THE BIBLE (Psalm 119:104, John 14:6). As for science, Lincoln Barnett, author of "The Universe and Dr Einstein", says: "There is no mystery of the physical world which does not point to a mystery beyond itself. All highroads of the intellect, all byways of theory and conjecture lead ultimately to an abyss that human ingenuity can never span." (Ecc. 8.17). "Man"s inescapable impasse is that he himself is part of the world he seeks to explore" (Ecc. 3:11), and can but marvel that "the world was CREATED by the Word of God so that what is seen was made of things which DO NOT APPEAR." (p117-118) (Continued in part IV)

Disclaimer: This article is not and was never an official publication of the Family International. It's from a typewritten class given in the very early days of the Children of God. I scanned it and converted it into digital format using OCR software. I tried my best to proofread it, but there still may be errors.
