Dr. Golightly shares his view on the implications of modern science for the narratives of the first chapters of Genesis. He strives, as a scientist and a Christian, to maintain both scientific and biblical integrity.


While supporting evolution, he also believes Adam & Eve were literal persons. Further, he takes the Flood to be a historical event, though not global.


I am aware that readers may or may not accept everything William writes, but the article is well done, and I hope you will read it sympathetically.



(Note: The position taken in the article lines up fairly well -- though not exactly -- with that taken in my new book, Origins: The Ancient Impact and Modern Implications of Genesis 1-11 (2018, coauthored with Paul Copan.)
