The Scriptural Accounts of the Creation : A Scientific Perspective
Converging Paths to Truth : The Summerhays Lectures on Science and Religion
Religious Studies Center, BYU
The purpose of this paper is to examine the scriptural accounts of the Creation from a scientific point of view with particular emphasis on physics and astronomy, although of necessity I will also have to deal to some extent with biology, chemistry, and geology. The views expressed here are my own and are not meant to represent the views of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or Brigham Young University. They are a distillation of my thoughts and conclusions over two decades of teaching and research.
