Science and Dawson's Theological Musings

Dawson does not neglect science in his theological musings.  Instead, he does his best to show how the biblical account of creation frames the scientific discoveries and even gives them meaning. For instance, at one point, he notes that “the proof from science of the existence of plants before animals is inferential, and still may be deemed satisfactory” (Dawson, Page 196). He then lists four examples of arguments, based in science, which testify to the notion that plants came first.  He understands the term day, in Genesis, to refer to “long creative periods” (Dawson, Page 197).
