Full Article Title
At the Society of Christian Philosophers Midwest Regional Meeting in 1992, I proposed a new mechanism for harmonizing and interpreting the Biblical accounts in the light of scientific data and theorizing. I also presented what I believed to be sufficient reasons for rejecting methodologies proposed up to this point. This paper received a fair amount of thoughtful criticism both during and after the conference. William Hasker has been particularly cogent in his criticisms through private correspondence with the author. The methodology is modified in light of objections received during this time period, as are the arguments leading me to propose the new scheme of harmonization in the first place. All objections aside, I argue that my initial proposal is fruitful, interesting, and worthy of further study.
