Bang?
Thus, it seems that the
fact that mathematics
breaks down at the
moment of the Big Bang
supports, rather than
refutes, the idea of a God.
God created mathematics
and all laws of physics in
the first moments of the
Big Bang — in other
words, at the same time
that He created the uni-
verse.
There are certain
aspects of both science
and Torah that are not
absolute, but open to
interpretation. The seven
days mentioned in Genesis
do not necessarily restrict
the time of creation to
seven 24-hour time peri-
ods.
How could it? The sun
was not created until the
fourth day, so how were
days measured during the
first three days?
The Hebrew word yom
is used to differentiate
between the various days
of creation. In modern
Hebrew, yom is generally
translated as "day."
The Torah mentions
that something was creat-
ed on a certain day, but
concludes each day by
stating, "...it was evening
and it was morning..."
The addition of the

evening/morning state-
ment indicates an artifi-
cial separation between
the days. If the days were
ordinary 24-hour time
periods, then it would
have been unnecessary to
mention the evening/
morning distinction.
During Genesis, days
probably were not of uni-
form length. References to
evening/morning indicate
a day that was measured

There is no need
to sacrifice
belief in Torah .
Science, unlike
Torah, changes
every day.

according to events that
ensued, not according to a
certain number of hours.
No scientific discovery
is absolute, and no theo-
ries of creation have been
proven. The current theo-
ries are simply the most
scientifically plausible,
utilizing our present
knowledge.
But science, unlike
Torah, changes every
day. ❑

Shabbaton Scare:
Lost in New Jersey

DANIEL KANTOR AK VA HEBREW DAY SCHOOL

T

his year, 11 students
from Akiva Hebrew
Day School attended a
Model United Nations
event in New Jersey,
sponsored by Yeshiva
University.
We
arrived
at
LaGuardia Airport and
boarded a school bus and
rode to the Yeshiva
University campus. Our
next stop was Engelbrook,
N.J., where the Model
United Nations ensued.
Approximately 150 stu-
dents from across the
nation were participating
in the event. All were
staying at homes of local
Jews. The Jewish commu-
nity was very friendly and
hospitable. Together, we
prayed Minchah, Kabbalat
Shabbat and Ma'ariv.
Then we ate and were free
to recreate.
Saturday brought more
prayer, recreation — and
an evening surprise:
Sportsworld.

Sportsworld is an
arcade, billiards and
miniature golf arena. I
enjoyed the activities and
reveled in the indepen-
dence our chaperones
afforded us.
That is, until the bus
from Sportsworld depart-
ed for Engelbrook without
me. -
I called the people with
whom I was staying, but
they weren't home. I was
frightened, lonely and
cold. I searched the
premises for a fellow
Model U.N. comrade, but
found no one.
I then called directory
assistance for the number
of the synagogue in
Engelbrook. It was all to
no avail.
There was no one in
sight who could help me.
When I called my host
family again, their 15-
year-old daughter was
home. I breathed a deep
sigh of relief. She was
