What is progressive creationism?

New animals were created as others died out.

Progressive Creationism is a theory that the universe and Earth are very old.  The theory proposes that the universe was created by the Big Bang.  During the days of the creation week, the days were not literal, 24-hour days but instead periods of millions of years each.  They believe that before Adam and Eve were created, the majority of life and Earth history had already taken place, and that death and bloodshed were already occurring.  They also deny a global flood and claim that Noah’s Flood had little geological impact.

This theory rejects foundational doctrine in Genesis and adds to the Bible.  It is another method of making the Bible fit with secular science.  For more information, visit the following link: http://www.gotquestions.org/progressive-creationism.html
