The Biblical and Scientific Evidence for Animal Death Before the Fall
Discussion Participants: Hugh Ross, Fazale Rana, Kenneth Samples, Marj Harman, and Krista Bontrager
One of the more disputed topics involved in the debate about the age of the earth revolves around the question of whether there was animal death before the Fall of Adam. In this unique round table discussion, members of the Reasons to Believe scholar team consider the biblical and scientific evidence concerning this controversial issue.
Does the Bible clearly teach that all death was introduced when Adam sinned? Or, did death come specifically to humans as a result of Adam's disobedience? Did the laws of physics change at the Fall? How could carnivorous activity be part of God's "very good" creation? Does a belief in animal death before the Fall undermine the Gospel?
