Origins of the Universe and Life - Author Daniel Friedmann "The Genesis One Code" Book Tour Nov - Dec 2012

Join Author Daniel Friedmann on his Virtual Book Tour, starting Nov 9th, sponsored by The YP Publishing.

Can  Genesis and Science Actually Agree on the timeline for the origins of the universe and the appearance of life

 About The Book - The Genesis One Code

Were the heavens and the earth created 6,000 years ago, as the Bible suggests?
Or did the universe expand into existence nearly 14 billion years ago from a spontaneous “Big Bang”?
Both dates cannot be right. Or can they?

Imagine medieval manuscripts, written some 800 years ago, that could help us decipher Genesis and thereby pinpoint exactly when the universe began – an instant squaring, moreover, with our most up-to-date cosmological theories. Further, suppose these same manuscripts could help us extract from Genesis unequivocal timelines for the development of life on Earth, again precisely as identified by the latest scientific evidence derived from the fossil record.

The Genesis One Code carefully examines the relationship between scientific theory and biblical teachings. The book approaches the origins debate from a fresh perspective informed by both scientific and spiritual research. The book demonstrates an alignment between the dates of key events as described in Genesis 1 and 2 with those derived from scientific theory and observation. This alignment provides a compelling perspective deserving of thoughtful consideration.

 About The Author - Daniel Friedmann

He is the author of The Genesis One Code, which demonstrates an alignment between the times of key events described in the creation narrative in the book of Genesis with those derived from scientific theory and observation. He is currently writing a second book entitled Adam and the Homo sapiens which will demonstrate an alignment between the key events and timeline recounting the appearance of humans in the book of Genesis with those derived from the fossil record and genetic studies.

Born in Chile and raised in Canada, he is currently CEO of Canada’s leading aerospace company which built the Canadarms, and is involved in space exploration and the Hubble telescope. He is a professional engineer and holds a master’s degree in engineering physics. He has 30 years’ experience in the space industry, having worked on projects in fifteen countries while throughout the decades conducting extensive scientific research. He has published more than 20 peer-reviewed scientific papers on space industry topics and cosmology. He is also a longtime student of religion and for the past 14 years has attended the Vancouver Kollel center for learning.His work on reconciling the biblical account with scientific observation utilizing his biblical clock formula has been reported in various newspapers, magazines and radio talk shows. He is passionate about helping young adults put science and the Bible in correct context.

Daniel pedals to work, 45 minutes each way while listening to bible study lectures on an mp3 player. In summer months, the spry 56-year-old sea kayaks, hikes and rock climbs. From October to June, he loves skiing, especially in the backcountry.

What Readers are Saying.... 

"As a Rav who was once a bio-organic chemist, the issues of creation science and biblical narrative have been an area of particular interest. The subject matter is one which requires a dual loyalty: one to accurate reading of the Torah and another to valid empirical and theoretical science.
Daniel Friedmann is an individual thoroughly committed to both of these disciplines, accuracy in Torah and in Science. And his book The Genesis One Code is reflective of this commitment. I found that his treatment of the Physics, Astronomy, Biology and Paleontology was the most thorough that I have read on the subject. He has provided valuable theories for advancing a true synthesis of the disparate elements, and is not afraid to admit epistemological lacunae or intellectual challenges.
Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the book is how well synchronized Friedmann’s theories are with the empirical chronology of the natural record. A second impressive element is Friedmann’s thorough survey of previous literature. I often judge a book by the quality of its notes. The Genesis One Code has copious and thorough notes, which speaks to both the honesty and humility necessary to advance the truth of this issue."

"Reading The Genesis One Code is a faith affirming adventure! Daniel Friedmann has done an insightful and entertaining presentation of the meaning of the first chapter of Genesis. Not since the Protestant Evangelical Dr. Hugh Ross of Reasons to Believe came out with his support of the ‘Big Bang’ theory, the creation day interpreted as an age, and ‘old earth’ arguments have I felt that ‘more light has been given to our generation’ regarding the debates concerning creation. For far too long many faith communities have been living in fear that science will somehow disprove God and God’s role as creator. Those of us who have been involved in some aspect of science and engineering knew this would never be the case. However we had to contend with faith communities that presented a narrow creation interpretation that seemed at odds with the universe we observe. I think most scientist-engineers of faith realized there had to be a method, an interpretation that would reconcile the evolutionary model with the days of creation.

Why is this important? Because, for so many, the creation debate acts as a stumbling block to belief. As believers we should be seeking ways NOT to defend our faith (God can handle that job), but to assist in removing the stumbling blocks of our own making. And as an attempt for inclusion of those who are already believers, yet define themselves as Theistic or Guided Evolutionists and often find themselves alienated from their own faith communities over this debate. What a sad state of affairs when the great conversations of life are not permitted in our own worship communities. I think we always walk on dangerous soil when we have to prove our faith, yet it is affirming to be able to present the ideas in Mr. Friedmann’s The Genesis One Code as a viable option. I for one am fascinated and highly recommend the reading and re-reading of this text."

 "The Genesis One Code, will definitely cause any serious student  of Science and the Bible to ponder deeper the vastness of Creation and our physical universe !
Daniel Friedmann has succeeded in presenting a valid case for the congruence of the Biblical record of Creation with  Modern Science. His scholarly research coupled with his Mathematical calculations; is quite intriguing and thought provoking.His ability to take complex terms and concepts communicating them in a relevant way is remarkable for any standard.Having said that,It was an intellectual delight to read this book!"

"The author shows exceptional courage in this book. He attempts to reconcile the timing of the beginning of the universe and the timing of the development of life on Earth, as described by science and religion. Irreconcilable you say? If you have the courage to follow his analysis, you may be treated to one of the most significant synthesis of these two great forces in the world today.
Think of it. The words of an 800-year old manuscript used to interpret Genesis, to predict and agree with what science has arrived at in the last decades. The meaning of such a discovery would be incredible. Read the book and judge for yourself."
