Fundamentalist Literalism and Creation “Science”
Although taking the Genesis story literally may bring about certain problems, there are some facts about evolution and nature that may serve as instruments in coming up with an altogether different theory through making use of scientific advances. The chapter begins by giving attention to Whitcomb and Morris's view about how the flood could contribute to geology since the flood may have aided in shaping the earth as we know it today. Such a theory and other aspects of the fundamentalist movement originated during the period between 1910 and 1915 with how a certain twelve-volume essay collection—The Fundamentals: A Testimony to the Truth—were made to reach out to readers all over the world. This collection, while asserting the truth behind traditional Christian teachings, also introduced the dangers of considering other ideas such as socialism, biblical criticism, and the like.
