Why Functional Creation is Deeply Flawed
Old Testament scholar John H. Walton has argued that modern readers have misunderstood the true meaning of Genesis 1. Given its ancient Near Eastern context, Walton says the creation account is not about God making material objects, but merely assigning functions. On this basis he sees no conflict between Genesis and evolution. In this episode, Keaton Halley and Joel Tay offer reasons why both Genesis and other ancient texts do not support Walton’s interpretation. So theistic evolutionists should find no refuge in Walton’s claims.
