A Break From The Norm - A Book On My Wishlist

It never ceases to amaze me that the older I get the more I don't know.  For example, today Google posted a doodle celebrating the 37th anniversary of The Never Ending Story.  My first thought was "Is that movie really that old? Well, it came out when I was a kid, how old am I?"  I eventually realized that the movie was not that old (as old as I am).  It's only 22 years old, but it is based on a book that is 37 years old today.  (Still younger than me. Ugh.)


I was raised in a Catholic grade school through 7th grade. I moved to a public school from 8th through 12th grade.  Half of my college education was in a state school and half of it was in a small private Baptist school.  Out of that variety of circumstances, I developed a faith in evolution and a faith in God.  Somehow I was able to pull the two things together and live with them harmoniously.  I even found "Christian" principles that seemed to explain how evolution "fit" with creation and the Bible.  But as I grew older, I stumbled onto things that caused me to question my foundation of beliefs.  

Today I feel like a heretic when I share my thoughts about creation with others. I expect people to respond to me, saying "Seriously Ben, you believe in a 6 day creation?!  Like, 6 actual 24-hour days?!" The thing is, yes, I do.  At least now I do.  After all, that's what the Bible says.  It takes well studied men to look at the Bible and misinterpret the words for the average reader.  They tell us "You see, it doesn't actually mean 6 days, when it says 6 days.  Jesus didn't actually heal the thousands of people, it just says that.  There wasn't actually a world-wide flood, it was probably a local flood."
