*** Genesis One Code
by Daniel Friedmann
I am a student of the origin of the universe and life on earth both from the scientific and biblical perspectives.
Why look at both sources of knowledge? Doesn’t science have all the answers?
When I studied engineering physics, I initially came to think that science books answered everything. Yet, by my fourth year at university, some fundamental questions concerning our origins began to re-appear. In science texts, some answers were not available, some answers were strange, and some answers were so metaphysical they looked like religious answers. So, from a basic religious upbringing I went back to study religion more in depth, this time also studying the mystical component of religion so as to find deeper inner meaning rather than the simple interpretation. Answers to my questions began to appear.
In discussion with my nephews (14 to 20 years of age) I realized they were asking the same questions I had asked at their age and like me, not getting satisfactory answers. Furthermore, there were some prominent scientists trying to promote that they had all the answers, and on top of that, that there is no need for God. The combination of all this made me re-double my efforts. Concurrently I saw an approach to the problem developed 800 years ago, that looked like it had promise – which pointed me to a reconciliation of science and religion answers on our origins. This was exciting and fresh and I was encouraged to write a book, The Genesis One Code, sharing what I had found.
As described by a reviewer
In his book, The Genesis One Code, the CEO of the aerospace company known for building the space station’s robotic arm, describes how he developed the formula – 1,000 X 365 X 7,000 –from references in religious texts.
Multiply those numbers and you find that in years as we know them, each biblical creation day is an epoch of 2.56 billion years,” Friedmann says. The age of the universe, when calculated using the formula, is 13.74 billion years. Science puts it at 13.75 billion, plus or minus 0.13 billion.
The book goes on to describe all key elements in the development of the universe and the appearance of life on earth showing where there is agreement and illuminating answers to questions science cannot answer.Best of all as a family you can spend quality time having a discussion about science, religion and the meaning and purpose of life.
