Full Article Title
Taking Genesis 1 and other scriptures in the most straightforward possible sense leads to several conclusions of great importance for cosmology: (1) The "expanse" of Genesis chapter 1 is not the earth's atmosphere but interstellar space, (2) The "waters above the expanse" are cosmic in scale and represent a boundary for interstellar space, (3) the earth is near the center of the universe. These conclusions form the basis for a young-earth relativistic cosmology which I describe in another paper presented at this conference.
Biblical cosmology, young-earth creationism, age of universe, hermeneutics
