Description: Parts of the Introduction of The Bible According to Einstein are read concerning the relation between science and religion. Although some aspects of the two are very different, there are some interesting similarities. However, it is important to note that religion deals with the spiritual world, while science deals with the physical world. When this distinction is made, the historical conflict between science and religion regarding evolution, the creation of the universe, and other issues is resolved.
Description: Listen to a reading of Chapters XVI-XVIII of the Book of Cretaceous. During the Cretaceous, reptiles ruled the world: dinosaurs on land, pterosaurs in the air, and ichthyosaurs and crocodiles in the seas and swamps. Sixty-five million years ago, an asteroid struck Earth creating tremendous ecological damage that wiped out the dinosaurs and four-fifths of the plant and animal species. This event paved the way for the emergence of mammals and eventually man.
