8 Pages Posted: 4 Aug 2009
Date Written: August 4, 2009
A proposed translation of the inception of The Genesis, compatible with modern knowledge and current scientific understanding is submitted, along with the methodology used to compose the rendition. The exercise is not an attempt to prove - or disprove - the existence of God, but is meant to present a literal translation of the Bible that is not anachronistic, nor one forced to rely on allegory or analogy to reconcile it with modern thought.
