Is Genesis compatible with Science?

(Short version)



 Comparing Genesis to  Science’ narrative of the history of the world, we should realize how high the stakes are.

If  we’ve found Genesis incompatible with Science, we’ve  discredited the truthfulness of  Moses’ entire revelation (assuming that Science tells us a true story.)

You don’t need to taste more the one spoon, to realize that the  entire soup is spoiled.  Having found one important chapter no true, you’ve  challenged the entire message of Moses.

The stakes are even higher,  realizing that Moses mentions the  Name ELKM 32 times in the first chapter, more than in any other chapter.  The name of  ELKM, as we’ve learned, stands for the Attribute of Judgment who seeks the Absolute Truth.  ELHM’s signature is Truth, emet.  Hence,  chapter One should be true.  If we’ve if discredited it, we’ve challenged the meaning of ELHM’s name.

Yet on the other hand, if we’ve found Genesis compatible with our Science  we should stand in awe: Who told Moses the story, 3500 years ago?

No wonder why Moses placed the story of Genesis at the front of his Five Books.  He knew that when people would find it credible,  they would believe also in the rest of his worlds

The scientific knowledge about Earth’s history is vast.  How can we  compare it to GenesisLuckily, the History Channel (HC) has recently published a video series named “How the Earth Was Made.”  The series summarizes everything that Science knows about Earth, from Archaeology, Biology, Astronomy, Geology, Anthropology and other brunches of science.

In our class we’ll use the HC series – and some other similar works – as a platform for our comparison of  Genesis to Science.

Let’s note that the HC brags about being unbiased by the Bible.  It promises to tell the truth.   It is therefore the ideal platform for comparison with Genesis.

So, let’s BEGIN!


Genesis compared to Science


The HC Scientific Account


According to the HC, the world began with the  Big Bang 13.7 Billion human years ago.  That number was calculated ‘backwards’ by observing the rate by which the galaxies are moving away from each other. Science can also tell what happened next by the fracture of the minute. In essence, ENTROPY  began to decline; ENERGY (Electromagnetic, Light, etc.) became to convert into MATTER;  CHAOS turned into ORDER, Gases of Helium, Hydrogen, Lithium, and other elements condensed into solid matter.  Water appeared in space in abundance.  Higher inorganic molecules were backed in exploding Nova.

Nine Billion years fast forward, about 4.5 Billion years ago, Planet Earth  was seen   as a ball , with the Moon circulating around it.

At that time, Earth was covered by hot, streaming lava.  It is therefore The RED PlLANET.  The temperature was 8000 F due to radioactive decay.

Then, the HC says, Earth surface  cooled off due to slowing down of the radioactive  decay.

Crusted, solid rock was formed on the Earth surface, on which we live today.

The core of our Globe is still hot and full of melted lava.

The  crusted surface would allow water to settle on it.


Moses’ account of the First Day  


(Genesis 1:1) In the beginning, ELKM created the Heavens and the Earth

(Genesis 1:2) And the Earth was Tohu and Bohu (Chaotic) and darkness on the face of the abyss (deep) And the Spirit of ELKM was hovering over the waters

(Genesis 1:3) And ELKM said let it be Light and there was Light

(Genesis 1:4) And ELKM saw that the Light was good and ELKM separated between the Light and Darkness

(Genesis 1: 5) And ELKM called the Light Day, and to the darkness He called Night

And there was evening and there was morning, ONE DAY  “ (Genesis 1:1-2)

Moses’ description of the FIRST DAY OF CREATION concurs   well with the RED PLANNT stage.

Moses mentions a “Beginning” to the world, concurring with todays’ science.

Note that the  Greek denied any beginning to the Universe.  The RaMBaN, 12th century AD, mentions a beginning from one point, in complete disagreement of the scholars  of his time.

The second verse of Genesis moves from the Beginning to Earth.  This could have taken many human years.

The verse describes Earth as chaotic- tohu and bohu – a term that CAN fit the melted, streaming hot lava of the RED PLANET.

The verse also mentions “Darkness over the Teom, Deep” which CAN allude to Space.

Moses also mentions Light, Darkness and Water, quite similar to Science.

I emphasize the word CAN to point out that this comparison cannot be done with any myth of Moses time.

But Moses adds something that Science would never say, that ELKM saw that it was good,” – that a Judgment was passed by the all Mighty JUDGE ELKM – the BUILDER- and He was Pleased. Everything worked as planed and the stage was ready for the next Day, next Floor of the Six Floors BUILDING.

This can fit the crusty surface that appeared on Earth, which could support the next phase – Water-  on it.

Then Moses says :  “And there was evening and there was morning, ONE DAY.”  As we’ve said, this Day couldn’t be our day, since the Luminaries would be seen regularly only later, on the Fourth Day.

Hence, here Moses  defines for us how long a DAY of CREATION was: -the time it took CREATION to move from the Beginning to having in it Light, Matter and Water.

A Day of CREATION could therefore last many Billions of human years  Kabbalah says: 2.1 Billion years on the average.

So far, Moses’ story of Genesis CAN be found compatible with our Scientific narrative; something you can’t say about any of the myths told in his  time.

How extraordinary, how exceptional it is, that Moses’ account of the Beginning does NOT involve any rivalry, jealousy. sexual perversion or violence among gods.

How different Moses’ story is from the myths of his time! How could any scholar count Genesis among the Bronze age myths?




The Scientific Account

After the formation of the crusty surface, the HC says, from 4.4 Billion years ago to 4.1 Billion years ago (300 Million years span)  water accumulated on the rocky crust.

Earth became  completely covered by an Ocean. It  is now named  the ‘WATER WORLD.’

From where did the Water come? The scientists, quoted by the HC, suggest that some waters came out of the cooling, rocks “bellow.

These rocks spewed water fog mixed with CO2 and other toxic gases.

Most of the Water, however, came down from ‘above’, from Space. The scientists  identify a segment in Space, filed with large and small watery comets.

As Earth passed through that region in Space, an endless shower of icy comets bombarded  its surface.

For 300 million years, Earth saw more rain that it would ever see. Thus, according to science, Waters con Earth came  from Below and Above. 

An icy comet hit Siberia on January 30, 1908. It contained 30,000 tons of water, and inflicted a devastation on the environment equal to an explosion of 12 mega tones nuclear bomb.

The scientists say that this comet was a tiny fraction, detached from a bigger comet called Encke. It still travel space , containing billions  tons of water in it.

It should be pointed that without the crusting of the Earth’s surface, Water wouldn’t be able to accumulate. it would have been evaporated or sucked into the Lava and disappear.  It is due to the hard, crusty newly formed surface that the Water accumulated to form an Ocean.

Once the Earth escaped the segment of comets in Space, the rain ceased.

Around 4.1 Billion years ago, Earth was  covered by gushing, green-red Sea   (red came from iron.)

The temperature dropped to about 200 F, still too high for life to appear.

The atmospheric pressures was too high to allow life.  No island  existed, since the rocks  could not withstand the erosion caused by the water waves and ferocious wind.

In summary, about 4.1 Billion years ago Earth was a Watery World covered by heavy, toxic clouds of CO2 and other gases. Earth looked like a big oven with  fumes and red-green ocean. No life  existed.



 Moses Account of Day TWO 


(1:6) And ELoHiM said Let it be a firmament in the midst of the Waters,
And let it divide Water from Water,

(1:7) And ELoHiM made the firmament, and He separated the Waters which wereunderneath the firmament, from the Waters which are above the firmament, and it was so.

(1: 8) And ELoHIM called the firmament Sky, Sham-mayim (“there are the waters”.)
And there was evening and there was morning, Day Two.

As the Second Day dawned, Moses  says, ELKM “separated the Water Above from the Water Bellow.”

No Dry Land is mentioned, and no life, not even vegetation.

Can you find a better match between Moses and Science?


The RED PLANET  corresponds to Moses’ FIRST DAY

The WATER WORLD corresponds  to Moses’ SECOND DAY





The Scientific Account




The Watery World, HC says, ended 4.1 Billion years ago by   volcanic eruptions  at the ocean’s bed. A new rock, The Granite, appeared. The Granite, unlike the older rock, could withstand the ceaseless   insult of the ferocious waves and winds.  Granite is also lighter than the older rocks.

For the first time ever, Granite Islands were formed  high over the Waters.

From 4.1 B to 1,5 B years ago, the  Granite Islands gradually consolidated into the first Super Continent, Rodenia (Mother of all continents.)

Most of South Africa today sits over that Granite Continent. The shores of the super Continent can be traced today by special blackish, smooth rocks that are the remains of Rodenia.  In contrast to all other rocks on Earth, these blackish ones are bereaved of any fossil of a living creature, not ever bacteria.

Earth is named the “GRANITE PLANET.”


 Moses Account of the first half of



As the Third Day of CREATION dawned, Moses says,

 (1:9) “ ELoHiM said Let the Water under the Sky be gathered together into one place and let the dry land appear, and it was so.

(1:10) “ELoHiM called the dry land ground, and to the Water Gathering He called Seas, and ELoKiM saw that it was good “

Amazingly, Moses concurs in full with Science, saying that at first, the Earth was covered with waters, and only then  ELKM separated the Dry Land .

Moses story  CAN be matched  with he Granite Islands and the  formation  of the Super Continent.

Moses does not mention any Life yet.

So, who told Moses the story?

We have so far:

I  The RED PLANTE matches Moses’  FiIRST DAY 

II  The WATER WORLD matches Moses’  SECOND DAY 

III. The GRANIT  WORLD matches Moses’ first part of the THIRD DAY 




Moses account of the Midday Judgement

of the THIRD Day


According to Moses, after the separation of Dry Land from the Sea, ELKM   passed a judgment, as it says “And ELKM saw that it was good…” (Genesis 1: 10)

A Midday Judgment meant an urgent, crucial event.  Earth stood on a crossroad- would it see Life on it , or not?

Moses says  that   ELKM decided that it was good, that everything was ready for the next stage- seeding Life.

The details of that Midday Judgment is given by Moses later, (in Chapters 2-5.)

A “good” verdict also meant  that the conditions on Earth were ripe for Life.

This verdict CAN fit well the appearance of Granite Islands, that turned crucial for the next phase – seeding Life. 





According to Science   



The  advent  of the Granite Islands, helped to support the first life, on the shallow, sloping shores.

The first life form cell appeared 3.5 Billion years ago in the form of  a mono cellular algae, called  Stromatolites, that settle on the slops.

The algae enjoying the abundance of sunlight ,while they live in the shallow water.

These Stromolites had one  talent: Photosynthesis.

They split the CO2 of the air into carbon, which they used for their colonies, and Oxygen which they released into the water and the air.

The Stromatolites  are still seen on remote beaches like in Australia. No one knows from where and how they came on Earth.

Yet they are are our “true fathers and mothers.”  All Life forms evolved from them.

From   3.5 to 1.5 Billion years ago,  the Stromolites  released so much oxygen that changed the atmosphere blue.

Earth is dubbed the BLUE PL


Under the blue sky, As the sky, the mono-cellular Stromatolites evolved into multi-cellular  Vegetation.

This  took a long time, -from 3.1 B to 0.1 B years ago.  The  Vegetation evolved into grass, shrubs and trees.  The Kingdom of Vegetation came to  Earth.. .

Rodenia split time and again, by intense volcanic and tectonic activity into sub Continents, that later consolidated again.  T

he volcanic activity spewed nutrients that promoted the Vegetation’s growth.

Yet no mobile life existed either on Dry Land or the Sea. The Vegetation fertilized itself by the wind.



Moses’ account of the  Second part of the THIRD DAY 


  (1:11) “And ELoHiM said let the Earth bring forth grass, herb yielding SEED and fruit trees yielding fruits after its kind whose SEEDS is in itself, upon the Earth, and it was so.

(1:12) “And the Earth brought forth grass, herb yielding SEEDS after its kind, and trees yielding fruits whose SEEDS was in itself after its kinds. And ELoHiM saw that it was good.

(1:13) And there was evening and there was morning, Day Three.

Amazingly, Moses too speaks about  the arrival of Vegetation soon after the the separation of Dry Land from the Sea.

ELHM, says Moses, seeded  grass, shrubs and trees

No mention on mobile life, yet.

So far we have

III a GRANIT WORLD  matches Moses’ first part of the THIRD DAY  

III b BLUE WORLD matches Moses’ second part of the THIRD DATY




The End of the Era  according to Science 



The Vegetation could have continue to flourish, the HC says, had not a major catastrophe hit our Planet.

A  devastating, long  Ice Age that descended on Earth, that lasted from 0.7 Billion years ago to 0.65 B years ago (about 50 Million years.)

Iit decimated all  Vegetation on Dry Land, yet  preserved it in the Sea.

This,  would turn crucial for next phase – the appearance of Mobile Life in the Sea.

What caused the Ice? Some scientists blame  Rodenia.  It grew so large that it  blocked the warm currents in the oceans.

Other relate the Ice Age to a change in the tilt of Earth’s axis.

The freezing began at the poles then spread over the continents.  Earth became a SNOW BALL flying in space.


Moses account of the End of the THIRD Day


(Genesis 1: 3) “And the All Mighty JUDGE ELKM saw that everything was good,

And it was evening and it was morning, Day THREE (was over)”

Moses says that at the end of the THIRD Day, like on all other Days (besides the 2nd) ELKM passed a Judgment on what  He had created earlier on the THIRD Day, the Vegetation.

ELKM’s Judgment is harsh yet just. He builds and He destroys as He deems necessary, according to His Plan.

He gives life and He take life away in absolute Justice (with no Mercy).

Under His rule, creatures that would not support the mext Day, would be eliminated.

Creatures that would support the next Day, would be allowed to stay.

Thus, at the end of the THIRD Day, the All Mighty JUDGE ELKM eliminated all that would not support the next, FOURTH or FIFTH Days.

This  CAN fit the devastating Ice Age that descended on Earth and decimated Vegetation on Dry Land, preserving the Vegetation in the Sea.




The Scientific Account



The Ice Age lasted 50 Million years (from 0.7 to 0.65 Billion years ago).   Earth looked like aICE BALL traveling in space.

The change in the Earth’s axis had caused Ice ,  yet it was  also a Blessing.  (Had not ELKM said that it was good?)

As the Earth axis as stabilized, so were the annual seasons.

For the first time earth saw Summer, Winter, Spring and Fall coming regularly,

The length of days and nights was fixed, as well as the regular tides at the shores.  All that would turn crucial for the next stage.




Moses’ Account of the  FOURTH Day 



“(1:14) And ELoHiM said let there be luminaries in the firmament of the Sky to divide the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons and for the days and years.
(1:15) And let them be for lights in the firmament of the sky to give light upon the Earth, and it was so.
(1:16) And ELoHiM made the two great luminaries, the Greater luminary to rule the day, and the smaller luminary to rule the night, and the stars also.
(1:17) And ELoHiM placed them in the firmament of the Sky to give light upon Earth.
(1:18) And to rule over the day, and over the night, and to divide the Light from the Darkness. And ELoHiM saw that it was Good.
(1:19) And it was evening and it was morning, a Fourth Day.

As the FOURTH Day dawned, Moses says, the All Mighty JUDGE ELKM ordered the luminaries to be SEEN on earth in  regular fashion. So regularly, that calendars would be established by them.  So regularly, that the Earth seasons would be predicted.   So regularly, Moses says, that the length of days and nights was fixed.

Thus, Moses concurs again with and Science.

But Moses says something that Science would never say, that ELKM passed a judgment and said that it was good.

In the BUILDER’s eyes, the Earth was ready for the next stage.

So far we have:

I  The RED PLANTE matches Moses’  FiIRST DAY 

II  The WATER WORLD matches Moses’  SECOND DAY 

III a. The GRANIT  WORLD matches Moses’ first part of the THIRD DAY 

III b The BLUE PLANET matches Moses second half of the THIRD DAY 

IV  The ICE BALL matches Moses’ FOURTH DAY 





The Scientific Account



The LONG ICE AGE ended 650 Million years ago (0.650 Billion) by  volcanic eruptions all over the Planet.

Tectonic Plates activity split the Super Continent into many sub continents that moved away from each other.

Earth’s temperature warmed up.  The volcanic activity spewed abundance of nutrients into the waters.

Mobile Life appeared first time in the Oceans (Cambrian Period.)

The scientists explain the change.  Stabilizing the days and night prompted the Vegetation in the Waters to adapt. 

They learned to open up at sunshine and close at nightfall.  The circadian cycle was established. This would turn crucial for the nervous system that Mobile life  depends on    Animals need the ability to fall asleep than wake up.

Water is a perfect conducive for Mobile Life to develop.  Nutrients float around and the mobility in the water is easier.

By 500 Million years ago, the ocean “exploded” with myriad species of mobile, swimming creatures. “The Earth would never see again so many species in the waters,” says the HC.

“Fish” of all kinds and shapes appeared in the water. First came small fish, then big Fish that preyed on the smaller ones.

The struggle for life began in the water. Weird “Fish” appeared. The first teeth, the first  smelling organ, first eye, first skeleton, first leg, first tail –  all developed first in the waters.

Creatures learned to mascaraed to fool  predators or their own prey.  The ability to cheat, to take advantage of, to escape danger – all these biological functions first evolved in the water.

The  “Animal Kingdom came to Earth in the sea“ says the HC.

In contrast, life on Dry Land was held back by the heavy, lethal UV Sunlight radiation.  But that changed too.

Around 500 M years ago, the sky developed enough Ozone that shielded the Dry Land. This change allowed the Vegetation to crawl onto the Dry Land, followed by Mobile Life.

Let’s pay attention to the steps.  First came on the Dry Land   Vegetation that formed huge swamps filed with  large trees.  

Most of our coal comes from that era” (Carboniferous Period) says the HC.

Ne  evolved  Lizards, Insects to their kinds, some lizards large as a three stories building. The Lizards could fly 15,000 miles non stop, the most efficient flying creatures ever.

Their shapes inspired the building oof some of the USA best Fighter Jets.

The regular tides brought some “Fish” onto the dry Land.  Those Fish  evolved into Lizards, Crocodiles  and other amphibians.

Birds evolved to fly back onto the water to catch Fish.

About 300 Million years ago, Earth was covered by large swamps with large trees full of lizards, snakes, flying dragons, flying large and small insects, crocodiles and fierce looking birds that ruled the sky. (Ordovician Period.)

This is what Science says on the period following the Ice Age. Earth is the GREEN PLANET

Let’s see what Moses says about that era.



Moses’ Account of the FIFTH DAY




At the End of the FOURTH Day, ELKM passed a judgment and said that it was good. Conditions were ripe for earth to enter the next Day.

As the FIFTH Day dawned, the All Mighty JUDGE ELKM said:

(1:20) “ELoHiM said: The waters shall teem with swarms of living creatures, and Flying creatures shall fly over the land and over the Sky’s firmament

 (1: 21) ELKM created the large Crocodiles and all the living souls that crawls, with which the water teem, and every particular species if winged flying creatures

According to Moses, ELKM ordered  the water to teem with swarms of living creatures” – the first Mobile Life mentioned.

The water would be teamed with abundance of mobile life.

Moreover, ELKM blessed them to be fruitful and multiply. This fits very well everything that Science says about the era.

Moses mentions, next to the Fish, creatures that would “fly over land.” This CAN fit  either the Lizards or the large Insects and Dragons as well as Birds.

Moses mentions next Crocodiles, large Amphibians.

Can you find a better match between Moses and Science? Who told him the story?



I  The RED PLANTE matches Moses’  FiIRST DAY 

II  The WATER WORLD matches Moses’  SECOND DAY 

III a. The GRANIT  WORLD matches Moses’ first part of the THIRD DAY 

III b The BLUE PLANET matches Moses second half of the THIRD DAY 

IV  The ICE BALL matches Moses’ FOURTH DAY 

V The GREEN PLANET matches Moses‘ FIFTH DAY 



 How the era ended according to Science 



The enormous bloom of life in the sea and the swamps, came to an abrupt ending by another major catastrophe that eliminated 90 percent of living creatures.

This happened 0.25 B (250 million) years ago when   gas bubbles surfaced and explosions all over Earth. It decimated Vegetation and Animal alike.

“Earth would never see such a devastation,” says the HC.  It seemed as life was doomed.

What caused the fiery explosions? – No one knows for sure. as we have just mentioned, some say that huge toxic gas bubbles came out from under the tectonic plates, exploding in the air.  Similar bubbles have been seen also recently in India and Siberia.

Although most of life was terminated, yet the catastrophe opened an opportunity for higher life-forms to develop , such as Cattle and Beasts.



 Moses account on the End of the FIFTH Day



(Genesis 1: 21)” And ELKM said that it was good”

(Genesis 1: 22) “And ELKM blessed them saying  : Be fruitful and multiply and fill the water in the Sea and the flying creatures shall multiply on Earth 

(Genesis 1: 23) And there was evening, and there was morning, the FIFTH Day (was over)  

Towards the end the FIFTH Day, Moses says, the All Mighty JUDGE ELKM passed a Judgment.

His Judgment is always harsh yet just. Creatures He deems ‘not good anymore’ would be eliminated, whereas those He deems ‘good’ would stay and adapt into the next Day.

This Judgment CAN fit the fiery catastrophe that decimated life on Earth, yet opened the door for higher creatures to evolve.

After all, ELKM said that it was good, meaning He opened the door for other creatures to evolve.




The Scientific Narrative

The fiery explosions that occurred 250 Million years ago brought Earth into a new phase.  The surviving creatures  blossomed.

The remnants of Rodenia  consolidated again and formed the last Super Continent, Pangaea.

Pangaea was the classical world of the huge prehistorical creatures that roamed the Earth (Triassic and Jurassic Periods). The air was rich with nutrients spewed by the volcanic activity, and the temperature was tropical. This prompted the Vegetation to grow even taller and thicker than before. The Ozone layer thickened too, shielding the animals from the Sun’s radiation. The new animals grew taller and bigger with no hindrance.

Life of all kinds exploded. Large leaf-eaters,

Cattle-like creatures occupied the swamps, their fat bellies and short legs supported by the shallow warm waters.  They could not run fast.

Soon followed huge beasts like predators that could ran fast and feed on the Cattle-like.  Among them the Dinosaurs, some tall as “seven stories building.”

This too ended by another catastrophe.


The Dinosaurs’ demise according to Science

The proliferation of Cattle- like and Beast-like creatures on Pangea ended by another major catastrophe that hit our Planet.

Around 75 Million years ago, a large meteor plunged into the sea near Mexico and arose so much ashes and radiation that suffocated large and small creatures.

Other scientists blame gas explosions for the animals demise.

The catastrophe terminated the prehistorical creatures of Pangea, yet opened the door for Mammals to grow, including Man.  



Moses’ account of the SIXTH Day



As the Sixth Day dawned, ELKM continued to create like ever before. Thus-

“(1:24) And ELoHiM said let the Earth bring forth living creatures after their kind,
Cattle and Creeping things and Beast of the Earth after their kind,
and everything that Creeps on Earth after their kind, and it was so.

(1:25) And ELoHiM made the Beasts of the land to its kind, and the Cattle after their kind,
and everything that creeps on the Earth after their kind. And ELoHiM saw that it was good

ELKM created Cattle-like, Beast-like then Creeping things.  This concurs with the scientific account mentioned above.

But what about the Creeping creatures? Had they not been created earlier on the Fifth Day? We’ll return to that question soon.



The Midday Judgement of the Sixth Day

according to Moses



While the Sixth Day was still in progress, ELKM paused and conducted another “premature” judgment on everything He had created earlier on the Sixth Day. As it is said,

(Genesis 1: 25) “And the All Mighty JUDGE ELKM saw that it was good.”

A Midday Judgment meant an urgent, crucial Judgment.

Such a Midday Judgment had happened only once at the THIRD Day.  The Earth stood then on a crossroad – would it see Life on it or not?O

Now again, at the Middle of the SIXTH Day, Earth stood on a crossroad: Would it see Adam on it, or not?O

To our luck, ELKM was Pleased and He said that it was good. Conditions were ripe for introducing Adam.

But this verdict also implied the demise of the creatures He deemed ‘not good.’   Since they would not support the rest of the Day, live side by side with Adam, they had to be terminated.

This verdict CAN fit the Catastrophe that hit Earth and yet opened the door for Mammals.

Now, what about the Crawling Creatures? Moses mentions them as the last giant creatures that ruled Earth prior to the Midday Judgment. How could that be? Crawling creatures had been around since the swamps of the Fifth Day!!

For a while I was quite puzzled. Then came the Time Magazine and saved my faith in Moses.  How? The magazine published on the front page a picture of a huge skeleton of a snake that had been recently discovered. So large was the skeleton that it could accommodate two Greyhound buses side by side.  And this was a skeleton of a young snake!

The Time Magazine explained that after the demise of the Dinosaurs, the room opened for snakes to grow uninhibitedly.  For the next millions of years those huge snakes crawled all over and consumed everything on their path.  They ruled Earth for long time, as Moses says. some of those snakes probably lived in caves as Dragons, even side by side with humans.

I  The RED PLANTE matches Moses’  FiIRST DAY 

II  The WATER WORLD matches Moses’  SECOND DAY 

III a. The GRANIT  WORLD matches Moses’ first part of the THIRD DAY 

III b The BLUE PLANET matches Moses second half of the THIRD DAY 

IV  The ICE BALL matches Moses’ FOURTH DAY 

V The GREEN PLANET matches Moses‘ FIFTH DAY 






How extraordinary it is, that Moses’ Six Days of CREATION,  fits precisely to Science’s  Six stages of the  history of Earth.

The comparison is complete, beyond our expectations and imagination.

Mose’s account differs from all other stories told about CREATION in his time, including the stories told in Egypt where he grew up.

I know.  Modern scientists tend to relate the time of writing the Torah to obscured writers living in the eight century BC.

But who in the eighth  century BC could write such a story that matches so well our scientific narrative? The Greek?  Romans?  Even the English scientists in the 19th century would not be abler to write it.  Most of them did not believe even in the Big Bang!

Who else could posses such a knowledge?


We should note that the key for our presentation of Genesis is the notion, that at Creation, G-d  “acted” as  The JUDGE, ELKM, who  creates, provides, but also destroys, in Absolute Justice with no mercy.

Moses says that during the entire Six Days,  ELKM built Nature   as both a BUILDER and  a JUDGE. He built and also destroyed according to His Plan,  with efficiency of perfect JUSTICE.

Whichever did not meet His criteria and could not support the following Day,  He eliminated rith there and then.

And that  notion of ELKM,  so deeply entrenched in Judaism, also  explains  the series of Catastrophes that hit our planet. 

How extraordinary it is that  those catastrophes, discovered by Science, fall exactly  on the time of ELHM’s Judgment, according to Mose

The prefect,  good match between Moses and Science, strikes us with awe.

The Torah is a living miracle in our hands, perhaps the only  miracle we can see for ourself.  

We don’t need to BELIEVE in it, just to see it.

But Moses does not stop here.  Having described how the six Days were created, he turns to the creation.

And Man, he would say, was created b A DIFFERENT HEAVENLY COURT, with JUSTICE and MERCY.   On that, we’ll dwell next classes.
