Reflection Questions
  • There were atoms and molecules before “life” appeared in any form. Explain the big difference between the two kinds of molecules.

  • In this lesson we are not yet studying the emergence of the higher forms of life. Note, however, how much the idea of “later” evolution depends upon the “success” of developments right down to the level of the DNA molecule. Does it appear to you that the emergence of “living” molecules out of “dead” atoms and molecules is more, or less amazing than the appearance of the “dead matter” in the first place? Explain your answer.

  • In what ways does Genesis 2:4-25 give a different account of creation than Genesis 1? What are the similarities between the two creation accounts?
