—How could the author of Genesis know what happened at creation
before he was even created?
PROBLEM: Traditional Christian scholarship has maintained that the first five books of
the Bible were written by Moses. The first two chapters of the Book of Genesis read
as an eyewitness account of the events of creation. However, how could Moses, or
any man for that matter, write these chapters as if he were an eyewitness since he
would not have existed at the time?
SOLUTION: Of course, there was an eyewitness of creation—God, the Creator. These
chapters are obviously a record of creation which God specifically reported to Moses
by way of special revelation. The tendency to ask questions like, “How did the
chronicler know that minerals preceded plants and plants preceded animals?” betrays
an antisupernatural bias and a refusal to consider alternative explanations other than
those proposed by naturalistic science
