are the Genesis flood genealogies literal? (Lamoureux on genealogies part 3)

Today we continue with part 3 of a 6-part audio-slide series by Denis Lamoureux on biblical genealogies.

The Sumerian King List has long been understood to offer insight into the long lifespans of the the pre- and post-flood characters in Genesis 5 and 11. Here, Lamoureux lays it all out in about a dozen slides and 9 minutes.

The audio-slide show can be accessed here and the accompanying handout here.

Lamoureux holds three earned doctoral degrees (dentistry, theology, and biology) and is associate professor of science and religion at St. Joseph’s College in the University of Alberta (full bio here). He is the author of I Love Jesus & I Accept Evolution (see first of the audio slide series on this book here) which is a great introduction to his view of origins called “evolutionary creation.”
