Billy Graham has affected the world in many ways, mostly in Bible, Theology, Philosophy, and Anthropology, also known as the Study of Man. In the 1964, Dr. Graham stated the following in regards to creation.
I don’t think that there is any conflict at all between science today and the scriptures. I think that we have misinterpreted the Scriptures many times and we’ve tried to make the Scriptures say things they weren’t meant to say. I think that we have made a mistake by thinking the Bible is a scientific book. The Bible is not a book of science. The Bible is a book of Redemption, and of course I accept the Creation story. I believe that God created the universe. I believe that God created man, and whether it came by an evolutionary process and at a certain point He took this person or being and made him a living soul or not, does not change the fact that God did create man…whichever way God did it makes no difference as to what man is and man’s relationship to God. Billy Graham: Personal Thoughts of a Public Man, 1997. p 72-74.
