The question of the age of the universe has divided Christians for decades. Is the universe six days plus a few thousand years old as the Bible suggests or is it billions of years old as science claims? What if I told you that both views are correct? In this lecture, I’ll explain using the relativity of time how the universe is simultaneously very young and very old. This provides a firm basis for accepting Genesis as literal truth while also accepting modern science as a legitimate way to understand God’s creation.

This topic will be covered over two lectures. In part 1, I’ll review the relative nature of time. In part 2, the following week, I’ll show how relativity resolves the question of the age of the universe.

See part 2 for the lecture slides.
