What does the Bible say about the explosive appearance of animal life in the oceans? In ‘The Genesis One Code‘ it is explained that the majority of creation events were making something from something else using physical laws. In other words these creation events are explainable by science. However, the Genesis creation account contains three exceptions to this – three events that are creations out of nothing – thus unexplainable by science. None of these three events have been explained by science. In fact, as time goes by and we learn more these three events get harder and harder to explain. One of these three events, the explosion of animal life in the oceans, is the subject of a now popular book ‘Darwin’s Doubt’, published June 18, 2013.
In Darwin’s Doubt “Stephen C. Meyer tells the story of the mystery surrounding this explosion of animal life—a mystery that has intensified, not only because the expected ancestors of these animals have not been found, but because scientists have learned more about what it takes to construct an animal. During the last half century, biologists have come to appreciate the central importance of biological information—stored in DNA and elsewhere in cells—to building animal forms. Expanding on the compelling case he presented in his last book, ‘Signature in the Cell’, Meyer argues that the origin of this information, as well as other mysterious features of the Cambrian event, are best explained by intelligent design, rather than purely undirected evolutionary processes.”
The Cambrian explosion occurred 530 million years ago. The Genesis One Code shows that this date corresponds to the Genesis account timing once creation time is converted to time as measured by science.
