Catechism Buzz: An Alternate Beginning | the NEW Calvinist Gadfly!.
As part of our Friday Fun feature and as a followup to my posts yesterday about the importance of the doctrine of creation to the Christian faith, I link you to this “alternative” reading of Genesis 1 posted at the blog of a serious Presbyterian who was simply having fun at the expense of evolutionists. Yes, it’s a serious message – just cast in a rather satiric form! Want a taste of what you will find? Here goes:
1 Fifteen billion years ago, give or take, WHWH* watched the heavens begin to form. Earth would come later.
2 (This verse left intentionally blank to allow for date changes due to mathematical, scientific, or philosophical error)
3 The spirit of Weh-weh hovered in the midst of the aftermath of the Big Bang and said, “Since Time’s already underway, let there be Chance!” Chance was already there too.
4 And Weh-weh attempted to separate the Time from the Chance, but they could not be separated. And Weh-weh cried, “Nooooooooooo!”
5 And there was Time, and there was Chance, one Aeon.
6 Some billions of years later, Weh-weh noticed that the earth had formed somewhere in the lower left of the heavens.
7 Since there was carbon in its primordial soup, Weh-weh sought to persuade Time and Chance to get to work making some proteins so there could be life.
8 Time and Chance said, “This could take a few billion years.” And Weh-weh cried, “Nooooooooooo!”
9 And there was Time, and there was Chance, the second Aeon.
