How old do you think the earth is?

Allan Bleecker for LEC(1)Tel Hai’s Life Enrichment Committee (LEC) will offer a two-session discussion of this fascinating and long-debated subject. Dr. Allan Bleecker will evaluate evidences from the natural world and from Scripture. The presentations will be held in the community’s chapel on Thursday, September 11 and 18 at one o’clock. How old you think the earth is has no bearing on the actual age of the earth, of course. It can, however make a lot of difference in how you view the Biblical record. Does an honest reading of Genesis 1 and 2 confine creation to six, twenty-four hour days a few thousand years ago? Or, does it allow for an origin of much greater antiquity?

Dr. Bleecker holds a baccalaureate degree in biology and taught at Rutgers University while pursuing his Ph.D. in Aquatic Ecology. He taught biology for 26 years at The King’s College in Briarcliff Manor NY, where he taught the course on creation-evolution and lectured in schools, churches and at conferences on this topic. After retiring in 1993, Dr. Bleecker studied at Westminster Seminary to develop a stronger theological foundation and received counseling certifications enabling him to serve as a counselor with Still Waters Counseling in New Jersey.

The program is open to the public and is offered free of charge.
