(Deuteronomy -47) In the English therefore we have translations of logos as “word”, “truth” and even “thing”, but the meaning of Logos can be seen in these verses as one of rational thought, design, purpose, and planning.

Deuteronomy -47 especially has dramatic overtones concerning how the word “logos” is used. The translators use the word logos when referring to the law, both in verses 45 and 47.

Most Christians fail to comprehend the implications of the belief system they embrace.

Radiometric dating--the process of determining the age of rocks from the decay of their radioactive elements--has been in widespread use for over half a century.

There are over forty such techniques, each using a different radioactive element or a different way of measuring them.

So while the original Old Testament is in Hebrew, we have a good opportunity to look for this word “logos” in Old Testament writings by examining the Septuagint.

In examining the Septuagint we find that the Greek word “logos” was a commonly used word, used hundreds of times, and was translated from the Hebrew “davar”.

It has become increasingly clear that these radiometric dating techniques agree with each other and as a whole, present a coherent picture in which the Earth was created a very long time ago.
