SOME NOTES ON GENESIS I AND I.
By E. C. ALFOFRD.
It may be of Interest at this mo
ment, when Dayton constitutes the
Acropolis of America to take togeth
er, a fresh peep Into the first chap
ters of your Bible (and your Bible is
as big as anyone's) and familiarize
ourselves anew with what the world
is doing so little of just now, looking
it up for themselves.
The first two chapters of Genesis
cover less than three pages of a Bi
ble. To determine their meaning has
cost more to the human race than
any equal text that ever dropped from
the htm an pen.
Do not think that I would attempt
to here decipher its mysteries. If
I can accomplish what every railroad
signboard ought to do, persuade you
to Stop, Look and Listen, and read
once more the text for yourself, I
shall be happy, and I trust it will not
decrease your happiness.
CREATE: The Hebrew word (bara)
is defined as to prepare, form, fash
ion, create. At once we are faced
with an ambiguity, and can form no
absolute idea from the term. No
word ever had an absolute meaning.
Isaiah uses exactly the same word
(Is. 43:15) in the phrase, "Creator of
Israel." The tory of Abraham will
give os a bint as to the manner of
the ereatloa of Israel. So eoncreU
examplei, within our own touch of
experience, the "here it is" tort of
method, constitute the "two or three
witnesses" that settle mont argu
The word in the Greek (-ktidio)
used by Mark, Paul and John with
reference to the same act of God, is
defined as to create, form, build. In
stitute. Paul in Epheiians (2:10)
phrases It, "created in Christ Jesus
unto good works. A mighty fine
parallel as a spiritual reality, with
the first creation "in the image of
Something of the degree of accu
racy in the idea of the writer it seen
in the sixteenth and seventeenth
verses in hii estimate of the com
parative sires of the heavenly bodies,
and of their importance; as though
the sole purpose of the stars was to
give light upon the earth. That
would look well set beside soma of
the present measurements of astronomy.
The 20th verse Is the authority for
the belief that prevailed a long way
into the last century, when the micro
scope proved it false, that the teem
ing infusorial life In the water, was
of "spontaneous generation" by the
water. And men who dared question
it were ostracised, hereticated, by

an inquiiition marked with ai much
reasoning, and with the same hair
on the wriiu and neck at its legiti
mate offspring, the "fundamenUliit"
Geneiii 27:22. When did men come
to discredit the literatitjr of the 21st
veraet in the assertion that the wa
ters "brought forth whales in the
same way? The same "bring forth
ia applied to grass and insect and
mammal as a product of the- soil.
Great contentious hair-splitting is
exercised over the exact meaning of
"bara" as speaking into existence.
In the first verse it is said God "cre
ated the heavens and the earth." In
the seventh God "made" the firma
ment, and in the 16th God "made"
two great lights. In the 21st God
"created' man in His own image, but
in the 26th God said let us "make"
him in our own image. And that is
the kind of evaporation that takes
place in any hair-splitting effort at
absolute defining of any term, in the
ology or philosophy, and yet I have

In the "fundamentalist's" dizzy
headedness, he drops from the exalt
ed heights of a pure spiritual ideal
ism in which man bears that unap
proachable image, in chapter 2:7, to
the groveling level of materialism, in
the "mud-made" man. Any absolute
ly literal interpretation of the scrip
tures ia materialistic, and fails of the
high idealism of spirituality. And no
man ever has nor ever can give a lit
eral interpretation of the Genesis
story and make it walk, or hang to
gether. The same literal interpretation
breaks down when applied to the
"garden" (2:8-10). Any material
meaning given to the "tree of life"
and the tree of knowledge of good
and evil must be flimsy, and obliter
ates the exalted conception of those
spiritual realities of which, as God's
higher creature he has become an
