A Catholic View of Creation, Flood, and Noah's Ark (plus handout)
Live Seminar for Teens & Adults by Steve Wood *Also available in MP3
Is the Genesis account of creation just a collection of myths, as most young Catholics are taught, or is it an accurate depiction of our origins?
Unfortunately, most Catholics have only heard the evolutionist side of the origins debate. They have never been told that popes, church fathers, saints, doctors of the church and ecumenical councils have consistently affirmed special creation and the Flood. In his groundbreaking audio presentation, A Catholic View of the Creation, Flood, and Noah’s Ark, Steve Wood presents the historic Christian perspective on the creation of the universe and the events recorded in the early chapters of Genesis. Steve breaks down difficult topics in an easy-to-understand manner in this talk given to a live audience of Catholic teenagers and their parents.
But what about Noah’s Ark? About 98% of Catholic youth are being told Noah’s Ark and the Flood are nothing more than myths, like the other “stories” in the early chapters of Genesis. And yet early church historians, church fathers, saints, and doctors of the church believed Noah’s Ark was real. Believe it or not, they affirmed that the Ark survived and that its remains were still plainly visible at least 3,000 years after the Flood.
The CD’s accompanying study handout contains a collection of often-ignored citations on the Flood from the Church Fathers. For example, St. Isadore of Seville, who lived in the seventh century A.D., said, “Ararat is a mountain in Armenia, where the historians testify that the Ark came to rest after the Flood. So even to this day wood remains of it are to be seen there.” In other words, if you doubt that the Ark is real, then go and see it for yourself.
