2.1 Old Earth Creationism - The Gap Theory

The belief that there is a considerable amount of time between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis1:2. and that the cosmos, which was originally created long before the creation week in Genesis, became without form and void. In the creation week in Genesis, God "re-created" the earth and told mankind to replenish it. Some proponents of the Gap Theory believe that geological strata were created during the time before the re-creation of the world, and do not believe that Noah's flood was world wide. This theory has its origin with the founders of modern geology (e.g. Thomas Chalmers, Hugh Miller), and is referred to by some as the "ruin-reconstruction" view. This view is found in the Scofield Reference Bible, Dake's Annotated Reference Bible, and the Newberry Reference Bible.
