I am struggling with reconciling a biblical worldview and science. I have read plenty of articles on here and am still struggling to reconcile Peter and Paul’s beliefs in things like a global flood and traditional Adam and Eve as significant points in their theology with the idea that science says that there was no global flood or first pair of humans.
Here are a few of verses that I am alluding to and haven’t really seen addressed on this site:
Acts 17:26 NIV
From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.
1 Timothy 2:13 NIV
For Adam was formed first, then Eve.
2 Peter 3:5-6 NIV
But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed.
How am I supposed to apply these verses if those events didn’t really happen, or at least if they didn’t happen in the way Peter and Paul thought they did?
Also, Adam can’t have existed millions of years ago according to Luke’s genealogy right?
