Every word in the six-day Genesis creation account describes the origins of the universe and life on Earth. Yet the scientific discoveries and observations that contribute to our understanding of when and how the universe came to be often seem to contradict Genesis. Can they both be right?
This book examines questions about the universe and life by trying to clarify what science knows and what Genesis actually says. The Bible is the blueprint of creation, so scientific facts cannot contradict the Bible. But as this book explores, scientific theories may or may not be in agreement with the Bible.
The questions have been posed primarily by teenagers and young adults.
Some of the questions this book answers are:
How can there have been the Big Bang if God created the universe?
If God has so much power and the universe is so big, why would He create only one world that has people? Why not create multiple worlds with people?
If God created the universe, why don’t we see proof of it?
How can Earth be the only place that has life, when there are trillions of other galaxies and planets?
Why doesn’t the Bible mention dinosaurs?
Does the human soul really exist? Can science detect it?
Why does the Bible only speak about people around the Middle East, if the world was so large and populated from the beginning?
Why doesn’t God talk to people anymore?
If Adam and Eve were the first two people in the world, and they had children, and their children produced children, wouldn’t some of the children have health problems? And are we all related?
How can people in Genesis have lived for hundreds of years?
Why were there cavemen if Adam and Eve existed?
If you go back 5,800 years, and people had the “normal” number of children, could we have the current population?
How can a religious person be a scientist?
Now I Understand is a fascinating and entertaining read to share with the whole family. Read it today.

About the Author
Daniel Friedmann P.Eng., M.A.Sc., a Readers' Favorite 2013 International Book Award Winner, studies the origin of the universe and life on earth from both the scientific and biblical perspectives. His work on reconciling the biblical account with scientific observation utilizing his biblical clock formula has been reported in conferences, various newspapers, magazines, television and radio talk shows.

He is also a longtime student of religion and for the past 15 years has attended the Vancouver Kollel center for learning.
Daniel Friedmann's first book, The Genesis One Code, demonstrates an alignment between key events and times as described in the creation narrative in the book of Genesis with those derived from scientific theory and observation. His second book, The Broken Gift: Harmonizing the Biblical and scientific accounts of human origins demonstrates 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. His third book, Roadmap To The End Of Days: Demystifying Biblical Eschatology To Explain The Past, The Secret To The Apocalypse And The End Of The World, was published February 2017.
The fourth book, The Biblical Clock, co-authored with Dania Sheldon, is a narrative describing Friedmann's quest for answers that produced the prior three books. It is a stand-alone volume and in relating the story of discovery covers the essential materials in the earlier trilogy.
