The Creation Of The World: Understanding Gen. 1:1
by Larry Vardiman
This presentation is a word-by-word exposition of Genesis 1:1 from a young-earth creationist perspective. How the Bible describes the creation of mass, space, and time. The theology of God, the creation of everything from nothing, and a taste of Hebrew will be addressed.
This video file is a 60 minute seminar by Larry Vardiman that was recorded during the Seattle Creation Conference, October 2009.
About the Speaker:
Larry Vardiman is a creation scientist and educator with a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science from Colorado State University. He served as the chairman of the Department of Astro-Geophysics at the Institute for Creation Research's
Graduate School since 1989 and has authored many technical papers and books including overseeing the editing of the book, “Radioisotopes and the Age of the Earth.”
Dr. Vardiman’s ability to converse in technical terms about creation science and also being able to communicate with the lay person has allowed God to use him in many ways — from the classroom to the great outdoors as a tour guide, to the radio waves on ICR’s program, Science, Scripture and Salvation.
Much of Dr. Vardiman’s scientific contributions have been in the areas of cloud seeding, ice crystal growth and evolution, the age of the earth’s atmosphere, ice sheet formation during the Ice Age, and catastrophic hurricane formation. Dr. Vardiman has also authored a book discussing creation science from a layperson’s standpoint. Entitled Over the Edge
, the book chronicles his more humorous experiences as a tour guide on ICR’s Grand Canyon tours.
