Gênesis e a Cronologia Mundial





Gênesis, Cronologia, Dilúvio global, Radiocarbono, Fósseis de dinossauros


A desconfiança de Gênesis como história tem sido fomentada pela geociência uniformitarista e pela cronologia do tempo profundo. A realidade ou não de um dilúvio global tem um papel crucial na história e na cronologia mundiais. São apresentadas evidências de tipos diferentes que favorecem tal dilúvio a partir das Escrituras, da geociência e da antropologia. A datação por radiocarbono, devidamente calibrada para a descontinuidade do dilúvio, fundamenta uma cronologia compacta do tempo de milhares de anos para a história da Terra. Isso é reforçado por datas de radiocarbono com base no modelo diluviano para sítios do antigo Oriente Próximo comparados com os obtidos independentemente pelos arqueólogos. A corroboração adicional da cronologia de Gênesis provém de descobertas de tecidos moles preservados, proteínas e até mesmo DNA em ossos de dinossauros fósseis e outros em espécimes de toda a coluna geológica.  A crença numa criação recente e rápida pode ser defendida pela ciência isolada de construções ideológicas seculares naturalistas. A cronologia do tempo compacto reabilita a crença na realidade histórica dos relatos de Gênesis sobre a origem da vida e a origem da morte.

Biografia do Autor

John Walton, School of Chemistry - University of St Andrews, St. Andrews, (Escócia)

Joined the faculty of Dundee University in 1967 and moved to St. Andrews University in 1970, rising to full professor in 1997 and becoming Research Professor in 2007.  He has worked on the application of physical organic methods to organic mechanisms and is known for EPR spectroscopic studies of many kind of radicals.   Recently he has been developing radical-mediated synthetic protocols including those based around: “pro-aromatic” cyclohexadienyl reagents, oxime derivatives, photoredox methods employing titanium dioxide and for research on radical enhancement of heterolysis.  He has published over 300 articles in learned journals as well as 3 books.   He was awarded the Royal Society of Chemistry silver medal for Organic Reaction Mechanisms in 1994 and was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 1995.
