Is there any scientific basis for the biblical account of creation, and can any of the theories be verified or disproved? Is the creation narrative meant to be understood literally? Is there any way we can reconcile the age of the world, which the bible asserts is a mere 5775 years, with the geological evidence of 4.5 billion years? Can we logically explain the existence of dinosaur fossils when these creatures did not even merit a mention in the sacred texts? Is it possible that the Hebrew letters themselves are actually the building blocks of creation or that there is a hidden code embedded within the Mosaic texts? How does one explain what seems to be glaring inaccuracies and inconsistencies in Moses’ account of creation? These and other tantalising questions are addressed with candour and intellectual honesty. Drawing from multiple sources, including traditional Rabbinic opinions, renowned philosophers, and scientific authorities, the answers are sometimes surprising, occasionally disturbing and always thought provoking.
