Adelaide Southern Cross (Newspaper) - October 12, 1951, Adelaide, South Australia National Library of Australia radio replies continued from previous Page time Factor in genesis even allowing for the Long life Span of Early biblical characters the Advance of civilisation seems More rapid in the account in genesis than is borne out by archaeologists. If genesis be interpreted As literal chronology that is so. But that would be to mistake the intentions of the writer of the account in genesis. It is obvious that genesis gives an exceedingly compressed account. It seems to allow Only nine generations Between Adam and Abraham Only a tiny Frac Tion of the time required by archaeology. But the biblical account is a religious work which abstracted Alto Gether from it omitted countless generations Between Adam and Abraham and the Gap Between those two could have been 100,000 years for All we know unless we adopt the pre adamites theory holding that a race of human beings had existed and completely died out before the production of Adam and eve a theory which it is practically impossible to substantiate. Iron age too soon in the biblical account for instance brass and Iron appear very Early. That they appear very Early in the account is due to the condensed nature of that account. At does not mean that they appeared As Early As that in reality. Archaeology reveals at least five Long stages through savagery and barbarism before the Iron age. Each of those stages could have occupied thousands of years. But those stages could have been themselves a degeneration from an earlier and much higher level of intelligence and culture. Scientists themselves have to admit the possibility of that. But whatever science is Able to discover and prove in All these matters it will provide no reason for doubting the essential teach Ings of a biblical account which is out Side the sphere of science altogether and which was intended As a religious not As a scientific revelation. Such undoubtedly historical elements As it does contain were expressed not according to modern standards of strictly scientific historical composition but in a simple and often symbolical Way adapted to the mentality of the Primi Tive people in the age when it was written.
