Our ministry supports the authority of the Bible from the very first verse. However, some opponents of biblical (‘young earth’) creation also claim to believe in the authority of Scripture, but claim that Genesis 1–11 is poetry or allegory. Others rebuke us by claiming, “Genesis is not a scientific textbook”. If I’m in a playful mood, I’ll reply, “Thank goodness, because scientific textbooks become outdated in a few years”. Otherwise I reply that we claim it’s really a book about history—events that really happened in the past.Dr. Jonathan Sarfati elaborates. To finish reading, click on "Genesis is history!"
To justify this, it’s important to show what type of book Genesis is.2 To do this, we should compare Scripture with Scripture.
