Critical Thinking Assignment Critical Thinking Assignment Billy L Goe Apologetics 104-B35 Professor Obaina September 25, 2012 Critical Thinking Assignment 1 Part One: The Question of Origin The Quran states that "Allah created the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them, in six days" (7:54). While on the surface this might seem similar to the account related in the Bible, there are some important distinctions. After completing the Creation, the Quran describes that Allah "settled Himself upon the Throne" (57:4) to oversee His work. A distinct point is made to counter the Biblical idea of a day of rest: "We created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them in six days, nor did any sense of weariness touch Us" (50:38). Allah is never "done" with His work, because the process of creation is ongoing.

Introduction: The book of Genesis is placed at the opening of the Hebrew Scriptures and is the first of the five books of Moses, known as the Pentateuch. Genesis is known as the book of beginnings because it literally means “origin, source, or coming into being” (Youngblood 484). The book of Genesis is an appropriate introduction to the entire Bible because it provides answers for the universal questions of the origin of all living things, the universe, sin, and evil in the world. There is more than half of human history explained in its fifty chapters. However, the book of Genesis is not simply the introductory book of the Pentateuch, but rather it is the foundation of the Old Testament and ultimately the whole of Scripture (Zodhiates 2).

In Judaism, it is called the Torah and is the first part of the Tanakh. Tanakh is an acronym of the first Hebrew letter of each of the Masoretic Text’s: Torah (Teaching), Nevi’im (Prophets), and Ketuvim (Writings).
