10′s of people want to know: “How old is the earth?”

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“How old is the Earth?”

That’s the “all-important” question that the press asked Senator Marco Rubio this week. Rubio is apparently the “frontrunner” of the completely irrelevant 2016 election, which of course means the Democratic party is absolutely terrified of him.

And what does the liberal press need to do when they’re afraid? Destroy.

GQ gave the destruction of Marco Rubio a really pathetic effort this week by trying to press him with questions on the age of the planet in a recent interview — clearly trying to paint him as a “religious zealot.” Rubio responded by telling the reporter that he’ll “leave it to the experts,” he only knows what he’s read in history and in the Bible.

Marco Rubio can clearly now never run for president because he didn’t answer the question 4.54 billion years old…right? I mean WHO doesn’t know that? (aside from most people…)

Glenn, Pat and Stu mocked GQ accordingly for the ridiculous question and the left’s equally as ridiculous response. (see above)

“Is this an acceptable answer to how old the earth is?: ‘I don’t care’,” Stu joked.

Yes, Stu. And many would argue that it’s the only answer.

    This is another example of the left setting up the next confrontations for 2014 and 2016, and one more effort to discredit Christianity and make any follower of Christ as ‘insane, deluded and mentally unfit.’

  • landofaahs

    I don’t know, I was not there when God created it.  Neither were the scientists since they can’t agree with each other how old it is.  What you better worry about as a non-Christian is when the King of the Universe and creator Christ is coming back to judge the Earth.

    Here is something many miss in the good book, in Genesis 1: 1 it is clear in the statement of God creating the heavens and the earth, self explanatory.

    What most miss, including many pastors is that it next mentions the Spirit of God descending ‘upon the waters of the deep.’ This means massive amounts of water, frozen from exposure to the vacuum of space…between v. 1 and then, something occurred to the earth which required God to pull the earth out of cold storage.

    It is possible to believe in the Bible AND evolution.  

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MWAAFFBVKAROICVSLJNTZJPMBA HELEN

    Actually, the Bible does not make a claim for the “start date” in the way we think of time.  Neither does the Bible give a “drop dead date.”

    The Greeks call this kind of time “kairos” like our “in due season” or “you’ll understand when you grow up.”  The Greeks used the word “chronos” for calendar and clock time.  The Bible uses kairos time much more often than it uses chronos time.The Bible says it began at God’s behest.  It says that God made it all and was well pleased.  It also says that the world as we’ve known it will come to an end, again at God’s behest and our outright wickedness.Bishop Usher was the one who made claims for the date being some 6000 years BC ago or so and even claimed it was in October…even before October existed.  This date is actually more likely when cities began, civilization as we know it.

    Not really, at least not evolution as it is taught today.

    Survival of the fittest and minor alterations fit quite well w/observations.

    Evolution in the sense that all of life was derived fm micro-organisms is deeply flawed.  This kind of evolution depends on each mutation as being 1) beneficial and 2) long range.  Science observes that most mutations (over 95%) are show-stoppers.  Science also observes that helpful mutations are for the present not the future survival needs of the organism.  See Ann Coulter’s book Godless for a thorough explanation of why evolution as it is taught today is flawed and where it is fundamentally flawed.

    Is humankind fm this planet and not fm the stars?  Absolutely.  Our DNA says “fm earth” just as the DNA fm all living things says the same.  Why wouldn’t God use the same earthbound elements to create all living things?  This is why all mammals share certain characteristics, making them mammals.

    I majored and believe in evolutionary biology and I also believe in a creator, God, if you will. To me, the two are not mutually exclusive. The natural world is so full of elegance, Fibonacci numbers, the golden spiral seen on snail shells, nautilus shells, ram’s horns. Also, if you look at an evolutionary timeline, not by era, but divided into equal increments (I made one in graduate school with increments of 150 million years), you will see that there was an explosion of life around 1000 million years ago. I am SO SICK AND TIRED of lefty liberals creating these hostile arguments against decent, good conservatives and I adore Marco Rubio. Leftists are intolerant, antagonistic, belligerent, and hateful. And they are quickly becoming the majority in this country.

    Carbon dating earth and stones cannot be accurate because the formula was developed by supposing or guessing a date of an object then using that information to calculate the age of other things. Sorry, I just don’t buy it. I also don’t believe there was an “explosion” of life 1000 million years ago. The Bible is the only timeline I believe, and nowhere does it even suggest that the earth is millions of years old. If evolution were true, everything would still be in various stages of evolving. All life adapts to its environment but it doesn’t evolve into something it never was. Whatever life is, or was, on this planet was created by God, who knows all things and designed every living cell exactly as He wants it to be.

    Is the age of the earth really proven by fact?  Does the age of our earth really matter that much to us? Whether the earth is 4.54 billion years old or 2.11 billion years old makes little difference to us humans. Even if we knew how old the earth was, it will hardly make any difference. Most scientists also have theories about the beginning of the universe, but not ONE has explained it rationally. The easiest response is that the whole universe started from nothing. Great imaginations!

    Abiogenesis and goo-to-you evolution has actually been scientifically disproven, but it’s still being fed down our throats as atheistic gospel. While it’s all pretty technical, there are so many problems like life couldn’t have begun with oxygen, yet life couldn’t have begun without oxygen. Life producing proteins couldn’t form with D amino acids present. Gamets, each having only half the gene code necessary for reproduction, would never form.

    Just as we can observe a rock never flying on it’s own, life doesn’t form against natural laws, either. I’m so sick of atheists claiming nature can randomly break the natural/physical laws of the universe. Only God has that ability. 

  • Anonymous

    But, you really don’t know. It’s pure conjecture. That’s the difference between your position and that of scientists. They know their theories are just that theories. But these are theories that are selected via empirical experimentation. You affirmation that “Only God has that ability” has to be taken purely on faith. Which is okay. You are probably right. But it’s not science. You gotta differentiate. Why? Because when you mix the two, scientific enquiry with religious faith, then investigation for novel knowledge is gone. All you need to know is God created everything. Agreed –says the scientist–, but how? That is the question they want to answer. You all go nuts feeling victims about nothing, really. Relax. No one will take your faith away, that is, if it really is faith.

    Well, when you start theorizing that nothingness creates a vacuum and therefore something, and that something manifests as fundamental particles that interact to form what we call matter… well, if you don’t call THAT imagination, probably you should stay with “…and on the seventh day He rested.”, because in reality the work physical scientists are doing can fill books and books of fiction.

    Actually, science REQUIRES that theories be able to stand up to duplication.  There is no way to duplicate the requisite mutations that would be needed for one single cell organism to suddenly become a single cell flagellate.  It should be reproducible to make that single cell organism sprout something as “simple” as a tail to assist its movement thru whatever liquid medium it travels.

     Of course it is. I believe both theories because they are both true.
     Please consider the following.
     Just because a biologist digs up a fossils and pieces together the theory of evolution doesn’t give  him any real world advantage .  What real world application is there, besides speculation and text book writing  ?

    Consider some guy who lives in the back woods of America , who has never seen a car, then runs into a junk yard for the first time. Eventually he is also likely to detect patterns. He also begins to figure stuff out.

     Just ask both of them the following questions.
     What can you do with your data ? I mean REAL WORLD APPLICATION  !
     Does it give you a true deeper understanding of the interactions in the  world around you, so you can navigate life’s difficulties ?  If so please explain.
     Can you piece any of these parts into a sum and make it work ?
       (What would such a car, let alone a creature,  look like )
     The real harsh  question is, do either of you “discoverers”  now consider yourselves sharp enough to ORIGINATE  the thoughts necessary for either .

    The Left uses science to shut down all debate.  But notice how science isn’t as settled as the Left would have you believe.  Notice how with health matters there is new research that contradicts current thought about every 6 months.  When I was in college in the 1980s, very many researchers came out to say they had reproduced results of experiments showing “cold fusion”.  Then some time later they all recanted their claims.  Today, much of research isn’t clear cut reproducible science like Newtonian physics, but rather unmeasurable, unverifiable hypotheses.  Science is being used as a tool by the Left to shut down all debate and critical thought to control the masses.

Maybe now?  And most religions have a creation myth, sociology teaches us that in ancient times, without technology, “some”  explanation was neccessary.  Would you accept “intelligent direction”?  Long ago I studied Communism, I know where you are coming from, To excuse your lack of morals, you need to deny religious teaching. “NO God”= no ten commandments”  Now you can lie, murder, steal, and “bear false witness”  True science DOESN’T “start with the conclusion” then work to prove it!

    Adam and Eve’s time in th garden of Eden had to be short otherwise they would have been disobeying God’s command to be fruitful and multiply.  If they lived in the Garden for a long time and did not reproduce that would be disobeying and “sin” so I believe that they were not there long before Satan tempted Eve and sin and death entered the world. 

    A great resource other than the Bible is the Answers in Genesis website.  They have a wealth of info about on the subject.

    Not believing in the correct age of the earth doesn’t determine you salvation, but it is important that we interpret God’s Word correctly.  So that we can “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect…” 2 Peter 3:15

    Never claimed the Bible was either science or history in the way we use the terms today.

    The Bible does reflect history thru the lenses of revelation and faith.  And a good bit of the science offered in tangential ways is pretty accurate.  Take the dietary laws for example.  On the don’t eat list:  shell fish, fish w/o scales, raptors, pork, meat that has been incinerated or been undercooked.  Why?  God uses the language and understanding of non-scientific people to keep them away fm things that carry germs or cholesterol or other contaminants.  All the don’t eat list either eat dead stuff and can be loaded w/botulism that would kill a grown man or they are loaded w/cholesterol.  As to cooking — flame broiling too quickly can release carcinogens into the meat.  Not cooking it long enough or at high enough temps lets germs and parasites survive to make the eater sick.  God said roast or boil the meat and eat no blood for the life is in the blood.  The sexual laws are equally scientific if you look at them fm today, disregarding the archaic language.

    Even the poetic beginning of the account of Creation in Genesis presents an unscientific and poetic reflection of what science calls the Big Bang!  Look at the order of living things — plants, fish of the sea/birds of the air, then mammals.  Pretty much what the fossil record says, too.

    Actually the Bible believer can determine the very approximate age of the earth by the lifespans given for all the godly descendants of Adam, which tells us it is about 6 thousand years old. It was roughly 2 thousand years from Adam to Abraham, and 2 roughly two thousand from Abraham to Jesus. And the rest you know. Young earth creation models with Christian scientist groups like the Baptist ICR (Institute for Creation Research) and various other Creationists science groups.

    The Bible is a collection of allegories and parables (with some elements loosely based on actual historical events) designed, in part, to provide answers for people who asked questions about matters which they could not yet comprehend and to provide guidelines for expected moral behavior as determined by the religious order of the time.

    Anyone who claims that the Bible is a literal account of actual historical events is living in a state of denial.

    Truman did the best he could w/what he had at the time.  He tht he was saving more lives than taking by using atomic weapons.  He was ready to use it on the Nazis first, but they capitulated before the weapon was ready.

    As to human suffering — there are two answers and you may not like either one.  One is based in the apocalyptic.  It says that when it’s all said and done, the evil who have refused to turn to God exile themselves to hell, never to harm another soul.  The other flows out of Job’s experience.  We don’t know the mind of God.  We can only trust Him to make it right.

    Personally, I think it is related to His having given us autonomy — free will can be a good thing and a bad thing.  He has given us guidance in how to go — do justice, love mercy, walk humbly w/Him (Micah 6:8 paraphrased).  When we fail to obey and follow His rules for the game of life, we cause suffering for others and for ourselves.  When we choose to ally w/Satan (yes, he’s real and cosmic in his evil), then we cause beyond the pale suffering like the Holocaust or the starvation of the Ukraine under Stalin or the incessant 5 year plans under Mao.  Pick your tyrant and combine his evil w/the Adversary, and that is what you get.

    As an observant Christian, I do know that God will wipe away my tears in the End.  See Romans ch 8 for when things go wrong.

    C-14 only works on animate things.

    Not seeing gravity is like not seeing God.  You trust in gravity every time to take a step.  It works so nicely in concert w/friction to allow you to move in whatever direction you choose.

    God is the one who gave you those gifts — the laws of physics.

    The Torah (first 5 books of the Bible) indeed proves 1) God is all knowing and 2) He cares about us.

    Life is like playing, say baseball.  It has a field of play — this universe.  It has rules to play by, for if it did not, you could not say home run or foul ball.

    Torah gives the basic rules for life, beyond just the Ten Commandments.  The dietary laws keep you fm eating things that will make you sick or cause heart clogging cholesterol and plaque.  You see while farm raised shell fish and pork may no longer be carrion eaters, they are still heavily laden w/cholesterol.  In the wild, they eat dead stuff — botulism can kill you or make you wish you were dead.  Most of the unclean mammals also carry other pests in their flesh.  The “clean” animals are easily cooked to rid them of the problem of germs.  Moreover, even the way you cook them protects you fm carcinogens in flame quickly cooked meat.  He instructed Moses to tell the people to roast or boil the meat.  Slow cooking does not create carcinogens in the meat and it ensures it is cooked to a proper germ/parasite-killing temp.

    As clever and well-educated for his day, Moses knew nothing of germs and cancer.  Yet God did know and loved us to warn us off things that would harm us — all using our own understanding of the day.  Thus, He loves you and me as well as Moses and the sons of Israel!

     You are right – I cannot think of a single fact that I was taught about evolution in school that was not a fraud, a lie, wrong or reversed. That was why I left off believing in fairy tales and started looking at science. And science sure doesn’t support evolution. The more we learn, the less possible evolution is, and the more logical an intelligent designer becomes. But as Lewontin stated – it doesn’t matter how silly, unscientific or failed an evolutionary premise is, it must be accepted because of our a priori commitment to naturalism. How profoundly unscientific! Then there was the U of T professor who was so upset about the discovery that there is virtually NO junk DNA that he warned the science community against releasing any scientific discoveries that MIGHT help out those poor ignorant creationist, who just happen to be the founders of most of our schools of science today!

    Yes, I have seen gravity. A nice sized rock falling from about 10 on top of your head leaves a nice knot. I see God in all of his work(creation) but that would require abstract thinking not linear myopic retardation. To your other opinion about carbon 14 dating. If you as many unbelieving scientists believe that matter is eternal, how could carbon 14 ever be tested against something like that and would it not have to have something else as a test for your theory? What would be older than eternal? But I can see you do not see the gravity of your errors.

    You must be retarded also. Did I not say that you should be worried about Christ coming to judge the world. Nowhere did I say I am judging. I am only relaying information Christ gave us. If you have a problem with it take it up with him not me. But I do find you amusing when you complain that I am judging you and others and in the same paragraph you judge me by calling me a hypocrite. That’s OK though because I rightly called you a retard. That is an assessment not judging. Judging, in the Biblical sense is condemnation through the final judgement as to sending you to hell. I do not do that.

     That is not random evolution – it is intelligent husbandry – a science. Viruses no not evolve – they devolve – and almost every antibiotic resistance developed by a virus has been identified as to where in its genome it has lost data.

    I don’t mock scientists for not knowing how to explain gravity but I do mock them for criticisms of believers in God when they don’t know if there is a God or not. You cannot prove God does not exist but I have at least creation to point to because you cannot say what was the first thing to exist and how did it get here? God is eternal so I have my leap of faith out there for all to see. I did not say that scientists cannot perform a test, just that they cannot test something that is eternal because the have nothing older than eternal in which to test it against. Can you use carbon 14 to test the age of carbon 14 itself?

    I would not decline antibiotics because I know they “can” work. Cancer “cures” have n the success of antibiotics so your point is really non sensical.

    There is no way we can know what was going on 4 billion years ago, or 4 million years ago, or 4 thousand years ago. All those theories are simply what a few people who call themselves scientists got together and agreed upon. Their agreement does not make the theory fact. It is still just a theory. To believe what they say requires faith. Now you can place your faith in a bunch of bozo’s who pretend that they know something. I’ll just place my faith in God. Have a nice day.

This translates that there’s only 1 in 35,000,000 chance that the what the data indicates is accidental. You can only claim scientific discovery if you reach sigma 5 level certainty.

    This question really is a BIG DEAL.  You see if you do not believe in a young earth you must believe there was death before sin.  If this is the case, then you canot believe the creation account and must reject Genesis.  When one studies there are a few signs (both Old & New Testaments) that point to somewhere around 6,000 years. 

    Elohim’s day (yom) in Genesis chapter 1 puts the day in the confines of time, “an evening and a morning”.  I like much of what Mr. Beck says but this commentary shows Biblical ignorance and was disrespectful of people who both study and believe the Word of GOD.

    God created the light on the first day and the Sun on the 4th day. Makes perfect sense to me. And I guess the skeletons of the Neanderthals, Homo Erectuses, etc were just the scrap that the “almighty” made. If there was a flood. Didn’t God tell Noah to save every animal on Earth? Why were the dinosaurs not saved? The dinosaurs did not exist I guess, and the skeletons were just made in some factory and hidden by some prehistoric people so they can troll us?

    There is the Bible, a book written by someone to tell the “absolute” truth, how you should love every living creature on Earth and how the love of God is unlimited, but I guess this is not true if someone is homosexual. Well, if God created Adam and Eve, it is one couple. They populated the world. So must have been some insane incest mother on son, father on girl or sister with brother action there to populate. I rather evolve from a monkey than to be from this “family”. And I guess the natives that live in jungles and have never seen a white folk will go to Hell, because they did not worship the only and true God, even if there was no-one to tell them about him. Their fault, they were born on the wrong place. Faith is a b*tch. 
    How do we not know, that the Koran is the one, that is right here? What is the proof, that their God is not the only and true God, and it is yours?  There are so many religions. What makes you absolutely sure, that Christianity is the one and only. There is no wonder, that religion is based on faith (every religion), there is nothing else you can rely on. No facts, no evidence.

    Good morning friend, sounds like you may have been burned by religion???  Good thing is, it is not about religion but a loving relationship with your Creator.

    You addressed several things, maybe I can help you with some answers.

    The skeletal structures that are called Neanderthals, “cavemen”, I cannot answer here, too much to explain.  However, I will address your dino question.  The word “Dinosauria” first was used by Sir Richard Owen in 1941, before that most folks just called these beasts dragons.  Some small species of these creatures as well as some young ones were indeed on the ark with Noah and walked the earth long after the flood.

    GOD is agape love, the purest kind of love.  You are correct, believers are supposed to love everyone but we are not to embrace sin.  We ALL fall way short but we are to strive to be obedient to GOD.  Sin seperates us from GOD but He has provided us with a Savior who’s blood can cleanse us from ANY sin.  GOD does not hate homosexuals, nor do I, but He calls it an abomination.  ANY unconfessed and unrepented of sin will seperate us from the Father for that means we reject His Son, Yeshua (jesus).

    Adam lived 930 years and had many sons and daughters.  Originally brothers and sisters mated until there were many generations of people and then it was accepted no longer.

    You ask good questions.  If I may be of any further assistance, my e-mail addresss is, RScowboypreacher@aol.com.

    Thank you and have a great day.

    Dinosaurs
    are spoken of in the Bible so thus discredits the factory need for fake
    bones.  “Dragon” is used 21 times in
    the OT.  There is also “sea monster”
    and others.  It is even conceivable
    that if the word dinosaur had even been coined back when the translation was
    done to English, they may even have used it.  Homosexualality
    is a sin.  Just as idolatry is
    sin.  Just as adultery is sin.  Just as drunkenness is sin and so on and
    so on.  God’s love extends beyond
    our actions and gives the provision needed for us to be made right in His
    sight through His sons death for us, which we did not deserve.  Romans
    8:9-10 8But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while
    we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9Much more then, being
    now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.  10For if, when we were
    enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more,
    being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.  The
    power of God is exceedingly great and beyond complete understanding for
    you and I.  However, he does reveal
    Himself to us and has made it clear that no man is without excuse
    regarding the opportunity to trust, have faith in, Him.  Romans 1.To say
    there is “nothing else you can rely on” is ignorant to the fulfilled prophecies,
    prophecies to be fulfilled, and the archaeological finds that continue to
    prove the accuracy of scripture to the point that the very “science” you
    hold so dear would have to make the bible a “constant” by probability alone
    (not that they would ever admit that!). 
    Yet you choose to embrace the Swiss cheese theory of evolution that
    scientist after scientist are walking away from because it lacks the
    evidence.  “There is a way that
    seems right unto a man, but in the end leads to death.”  I know
    you, I used to be you, man I have even gone out and dug up those dinos
    before!  With that, I praise the
    Lord for how He has changed me.  He
    has taken an moral and ethical failure and made me into a loving man of
    integrity for His glory.  You
    can remain in your sin, relying on yourself, or you can turn to Christ for
    salvation.  Heb 9:27 “It is
    appointed a man once to die, and then the judgment.”  Both are going to occur whether you
    believe it or not.  You can continue
    to look at things from man’s perspective, or you can choose today to begin
    to see things from the all powerful Creator’s perspective.  Choice is yours.  Joshua 14:14-15.  “…as for me and my house, we will serve
    the Lord.”.

     How do you love someone you disgusted with and you call him and his actions an abomination? If you are not disgusted with the person, you will just say, he is wrong, but to call someone an abomination is quite harsh. 

     How can be the incest accepted in any way or form? Brothers with sisters… It is disgusting and I would rather call that an abomination. This is something that I can not accept in any concept. 
     If I’m correct Sir Richard Owen made his discovery in 1842. Not the point. The fossils found are more than 200 million years old. If the human race would exist for that long, well, in that case the human race would be already travelling between planets and found a cure to cancer, AIDS, etc, and if I’m correct, the animals were created 2 tops 3 days before the human. I may be wrong in this. Did not memorize the book of creation as I’m a not believer. 
     About the savior. One person sacrificing himself for the sins of other people. This just sounds like rituals in tribes sacrificing a young virgin, so their god will forgive them their sins and mistakes they made. Again, here comes the question, why are we so sure, that the Bible is the true book of that higher power? That this many people are following the true one, and not the false one, and maybe the true gods were the Greek gods.

    @Trivinium…and by association David Chappy…obviously neither one of you has done any critical thinking…and…both of you think in literal terms when it comes to the Bible…otherwise known as man’s (or mankind’s) thinking. Did it ever occur to either one of you that there is no incongruency between the earth being billions of years old and the stories told in the Bible. Example…Trivinium…you seem to think literally that Adam and Eve were the first man and woman in a physical sense. Not true. There were many people on earth when Adam became the first man (you have to think spiritually when you are reading the Bible). God breathed HIS SPIRIT (spiritual life) into Adam and thus he became the first man made in the image of God (spiritually). He now had the same spirit in him as God. No other man alive at the time had God’s spirit in him. There was no sin, no redemption, no need to know or worship God until God breathed spiritual life into Adam. The concept of original sin started with Adam and Eve violating the instructions given to them by God in the Garden of Eden. Thus…now everyone is born with the original sin of Adam in them. EVERYONE. There are no innocents. Ask yourself…critically speaking…who did Cain and Seth marry if there were no other people. Do you see any mention of other siblings by Adam and Eve before Cain left and settled east of Eden. Seth was not born of Adam and Eve until after Cain left…and then other siblings were born of Adam and Eve after that. Obviously…God is telling you that there were other people on earth when the Bible states Cain and later Seth had offspring of their own with their wives. Once you accept the premise that there were other people for Cain and Seth to marry….it is no leap at all to believe that the earth was around for billions of years and mankind became a part of the creation later on. But, not until Adam…was there a man made in the image of God (in other words…with spirit). The men and women prior to Adam were dead spiritually. There was no salvation or need for it until Adam and Eve committed the original sin. I could go on…with other examples….such as your misunderstanding of the light and darkness of the first day vs the fourth day of creation, but you should be able to grasp the idea that you are thinking in literal terms and not seeing what is right in front of you if you take the time to think it through and see what God has put before you in the Bible to guide you and help you understand. But, you have to be willing to open your mind to the things you cannot see because you are only used to thinking in a literal sense.

    “How did no-living material become a living creature?” Oh that’s easy. A supernatural being snapped his supernatural fingers and made it happen “POOF” just like that. Wow. That’s so much easier to swallow than all that crazy science stuff based on facts, truth and reality. Thinking just causes trouble.

    This question, “how old is the earth,” and the question “do you believe in evolution” are examples of the progressive trick of reframe the question, which is “Does God exist?” May I suggest the next time a secularist tries to trap someone down the path that only ends with the respondent being a crazy Bible thumper, or an insincere believer pandering to the crazy Bible thumpers, the response be “The crux of the issue is the same as it has been for every generation, and for every person: How did the universe and everything in it come into being? Was it random chance, or did Someone plan it?”

    The whole point of the story is that someone’s belief the earth’s age is of no consequence in the political arena. And even if you are Steven Hawkings and you run around saying I know conclusively how old the earth is, you indeed are a moron. I know that the earth is at least 50 years old. Not one person alive can say it is 4 billion yo or 6000 yo. It’s impossible to say. otherwise bring it forward. Marco Rubio should tell reporters “screw you” just like Glenn suggested.

  • G S

    Nonsense. You’re delusional and it shows. The earth is not 6000 years old and Rubio should face reality if he wants to be taken seriously as a leader with his feet on the ground. Rubio is making a huge mistake. The voters are educated and they know the truth even if Rubio wants to hide from it by burying his head in myth.

  • G S

    Wrong. Rubio should admit that the science that has provided him with all the attributes of modern life that he enjoys also has the ability to demonstrate that the earth is more than 6000 years old. He refuses, and as a result, he looks like a delusional fool. Science gave us computers and we are all using them. Sparduck, you yourself trust science because you used a computer to write your message. So why don’t you trust science about the age of the earth? You and Rubio are just plain stubborn and silly

    They cannot prove what causes it. Understand? How can I prove the theory of creation? That is easy. There is a test going on as we speak and has been going on for thousands of years. When God returns to jusge the Earth, the results and proof of the experiment will be there for you. Of course for many it will be too late then to be useful. That is why I take it on faith at first, but now with my personal relationship with Christ, it is not a leap of faith but absolute proof to me which I nor anyone else can relate to others. It is a personal gift from God for which I am most thankful. I know that is rediculous to some people and that is your right. Have your own way. See how tolerant we Christians are? We allow you disagree with us and as for me, I am not upset that you don’t get it. It’s not my job to see that you get it. That is the Holy Spirit’s work not mine.

    Proving the theory of Creation is as easy as proving the theory of evolution – they both have the same evidence.  The biggest difference is that evolution defies the laws of science and make the assumption that randomness can bring order – a violation of every observation in science. It is far more scientific to assume that design, complexity and code came from intelligence, for that is the only source for same ever observed in science. The downfall of evolution, and one great reason why it is NOT scientific is that it sets preconditions upon the observations, that no matter how strong the evidence leading towards a supernatural conclusion, that conclusion is not allowed. Any investigation that does not allow one to follow the evidence to a logical conclusion is dogma, and not science.

    Silly liberals/progressives/communists. The geological record shows the earth to be much older than 6000 years. And, global warming/cooling has been going on since the planet was first formed, from whatever. No one was around to report how that happened, and still living today. So, one theory is as good as another. Theories are those postulations which supposedly brilliant people make about how things may have worked out. Not necessarily provable, in the empirical(beyond doubt, 1+1=2 type of thing) sense. None of us will know for sure how it all came to be until we die. Maybe, not even then. For Rubio to answer the “gotcha” question as he did is his prerogative, and he is entitled to do so. The “tolerant” liberals, etc. cannot substantiate the origins of the planet any differently with their theories(remember, theories are unproven and just speculations about something) of the supposedly brilliant experts on the planet. So, one  opinion about these things is as good as another, right? Unless it doesn’t agree with the liberals/progressives/communists opinion, or theory, or whatever, of course.
    Never read GQ. Now I know I won’t ever read their rag. Expect to see more of demonization of conservatives in the near future. No surprise.

    evolution does not try and state that randomness brings order. It states that all animals have a shared ancestor and that all animals evoled from there depending on the enviorment that they lived in. What are the preconditions of observation that you are speaking of. And your telling me that the theary of creation is true just because someone wrote it in a book and no one prove that is real. we can study the effects of evolution.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jules.p.guidry Jules P. Guidry

     Great question. Nobody will be able to answer that one, without referring to a supreme being(God). Lots of theories, but not empirical evidence. Faith is what differentiates the believers in a God from those who say evolution is the beginning of all. Yet, they cannot answer your question. Then there is mine, who created the non-living material in the first place? Ah, don’t ya just love toying with mental midgets in this world?

    Remeber when you have a scientific theory you have to show you facts to support your theory. With the theory of creation there are no facts it’s just what the bible says. remeber the same people who worte the bible thought the world was flat and that the earth was the center of the uviverse.

    Scientists have done experiments in which they created what would have been the conditions on earth a few billion years ago. They filled a container with water, carbon dioxide, methane and ammonia and supplied energy to it such as UV light or electrical sparks to represent primordial thunder. After a few weeks, a brown soup formed in which more complex molecules were found such as amino acids, the building blocks of protein which are essential for life. laboratory simulations of chemical conditions of earth before the coming of life have yielded organic substances called purines and pyrimidines which are the building blocks of the genetic molecule, DNA itself. At some point in history a particularly remarkable molecule was formed by a process called abiogenesis, we will call this the ‘replicator’. The first molecule capable of making copies of itself and just like any thing that creates copies of itself, it is never perfect and changes happen and cause the molecule to develop differently than the previous generation of itself (evolution).

    Just how is evolution falsifiable? Every major tenant of Darwins concept has been proven false, yet the theory mutates into neo-Darwinism, and that has proven irrational, yet still taught in textbooks as fact. 75 years ago, Darwinism WAS probably a reasonable hypothesis. We had the evidence of recapitulation, we had the Urey experiments, the evidence of Piltdown man, etc. Two of the three were intentional frauds to bolster the theory, the third (Urey) proved beyond reasonable doubt that unlimited manpower, money and intelligence could not make the slightest progress towards creating life, therefore making it almost a scientific certainty that it did NOT happen by random circumstances.

    Evolution is a random collection of unprovable assumptions held together only by the necessity to have a theory that does not require an intelligent Creator.

    I’ve read it. Throughly and for a while, before I read much else, I believed those who said every other religion was wrong (based on their interpretation of the Bible). Now I’ve read a lot more. And you know what, I see the Bible for what it is. Just like you said, it’s a (narrow, I might add) faith-affected perspective of a (very narrow) piece of history. And as that, it only works today to make people close minded and narrow. It’s not the Bible’s fault, and it’s not God’s fault either (obviously). It’s just that signs (I’m a semiotician) cannot be understood by what they mean, signs (like the Bible) don’t mean just one thing that can be looked up on the dictionary or consulted with a wise old priest (usually male). Signs, complex as they can be, can only be understood by the habits they instill on those who grant them significance. Religion has a very bad behavioral record throughout history. All religions. Do we stop believing in God. Of course not, we just don’t follow those who claim to understand him better, because they don’t. God’s truth usually reveals to individuals in their particularity, not because they are devout Christians, Muslims or Jews, but because they have love in their lives. Because God loves them because they love. And that is usually missed by Bible thumping fundamentalists. They think if they just controlled what everyone did then God wouldn’t be so mad at us all and punish us (the Glenn Beck hypothesis). So yes, the Bible is more than poetry, but it’s also more than Christians think. And yes, we have changed A LOT since Cain killed Abel. Only a conservative will try to make you think otherwise. Thankfully, I’m not. No you can claim I’ll be punished to hell.

    U Chicago did more experiments trying to duplicate Miller’-Ureys and came out w/different results, largely based on atmospheric contents.

    Your theory or abiogenesis still requires a good bit of faith and more than that of luck since in all the lab experiments, nobody has gotten it to do it again.  If the primordial soup were so able to make life fm organic compounds, why does it refuse our best efforts?  Even the old Miller experimental vials uncorked after his death contained even more different organic compounds than first discovered — but, alas, no life, just organic compounds.

    This is a typical trap question from the left. They know if he answers 4 billion or so then they can throw his faith into question. If he answers 6000 years he is a fanatic that denies science, and they can discredit him. 

    The truth is no one knows for sure. My astronomy teacher who is also a Christian at Fermilab (one of the best scientific research facilities in the world) super collider. His world view as mine is that the Bible is inspired by God but written by men in a manner that they could understand. To understand the beginning, Moses is probably looking and hearing about a sped up process of what happened. The Bible is what we need to know to have a relationship with our creator nothing more. 

    An interesting note here is that In my church was the brother of one of the co-founders of Answers in Genesis. He swears that the universe is 6000 years and he can prove it. My astronomy professor who was also his professor states he can prove the universe is 15 billion years old. Both are wrong, either way it takes faith that what we know and can test now was the same in the past, there is no way to verify that so either way it takes a leap of faith.

    I’m always hearing atheists ask Christians why they care so much about what they do. At least our reason for caring is because we do believe in a very real Heaven & Hell & wish that none shall see the former. What is your reason though? Why do you have so much to say about mine & other’s faith? You certainly don’t have our well-being in mind as you are incredibly rude & ignorant to our Bible. Funny that you rip on us for the same crap that you are pulling. No one truly knows how old the world is as even science & logic tells us that something does not come from nothing. So with your reasoning, why is it more absurd to believe that God designed the universe rather than it just designing itself? Until you have a concrete answer, you should probably refrain from being condescending to others. You are certainly no closer to enlightenment than I am.

    at this time, man has been on the earth for 6000 years (6 days of creation, 1 day as a thousand yrs to God)- the 7th day (7000 years or Daniel’s 70th week) is the millennial reign of Christ (hence God resting on the 7th day – that’s the millennial reign).  The bible says nothing about how old the earth is – just how long man has been here.  It is pretty clear by looking at the earth and the craters/damage that is here that there was certainly some big battle and man was not here for all of that or he wouldn’t have made it (which the bible also discusses a big battle in the heavens btw between lucifer and his angels against God and his angels – lucifer was cast down to the earth).   but how old the earth is … only God knows – science doesn’t even really know.  the earth itself is probably billions of years old.  the serpent was clearly already here when adam and eve were in the garden.  who knows how long that creep was hanging around.  Bottom line:  time is up and the hour is late. we are at the 6000 years – Christ is coming back and it will be soon…  keep looking up everybody!  it is truly something else to have been born at this time…scary but exciting!

    jimsponsored,
    What sort of a Christian are you? Stop calling others “dumb zombies”. See what God says about such talks in James 3:8-10. Our first priority as Christians is to show people that what we believe is real. He is ignorant but we beahve worse when we resort to usingfoul words unbecoming of a true Christians. Think for a moment, if Christ we around you when you used that same words. I bet He’ll tell rebuke you and say exactly wat is in Luke 9:55.

    “How can there be evening and morning before there is light — day and night. “It was evening and morning, the first day”

    Well… there are stars older than the one in our solar system. There is light generated from other  stars/galaxies. Look at the light produced from the Milky Way ( if you are in an area away from contamination from manmade electric light contamination).

    It was evening and morning, the first day” This could describe the creation of the Sun (Sol) of OUR specific Solar System — when it first condensed into a star, starting a self-sustaining nuclear reaction, that was then able to generate light.

    Could this be evening and morning , the first day, for our Solar System ? There was light already in existence when our Sun was created, generated from older stars/galaxies..

     ”God created the light on the first day and the Sun on the 4th day. Makes
    perfect sense to me.”

    Its truly a problem when you make no attempt to understand that which you rail so ignorantly about. If there was no sun there would still be a light spectrum, and light, which is what I understand this statement to mean. First you put the physical laws into place, then you have something to build upon. We are, after all, talking about an intelligent designer here. If not, where did all these perfect laws of physics come from? Randomness does not create order.

    “And I guess the skeletons of the Neanderthals,
    Homo Erectuses, etc were just the scrap that the “almighty” made.”

    You are talking about the same species here – not three. If they can interbreed, they are a single species. Most science has abandoned the distinction. Guess you are just out of date ;-)

    “If
    there was a flood. Didn’t God tell Noah to save every animal on Earth?
    Why were the dinosaurs not saved? The dinosaurs did not exist I guess,
    and the skeletons were just made in some factory and hidden by
    some prehistoric people so they can troll us?”

    Again, you are arguing from ignorance – God saved reproducible samples of all KINDS of land-dwelling animals. One Canine pair is all it would take to produce all the canine varieties we see today. And you know there was a flood if you know geology. Dragons WERE saved, and lived for millenia following the flood (dinosaurs is such a modern word for such an ancient creature) and may still exist today. You cannot prove the statement that they do NOT exist – every year thousands of new species are found as we penetrate further and further into uncharted areas, whether it be jungle or underwater. The Wollemi pine (Araucariodies genus) was just found in Australia – it is in the same rock layers as dragons, but in no subsequent strata, and presumed extinct. It flourishes in Australia today.

    This is one example where evolution stifles the advancement of science – because every culture on earth has left behind examples and illustrations of dragons. Evolutionists state that is impossible because of their irrational commitment to long ages. Give up the long age paradigm and lots of anthropology and archeology and history suddenly become understandable. We KNOW that the Sweitzer specimens cannot be millions of years old because collagen products cannot last that long. That necessarily brings the existence of dragons within 100,000 years. We have been refused the opportunity to carbon date those specimens, but others from the same area have been , and I believe the age returned was under 40,000 years, or right in keeping with what a creationist would expect.

     You made your own dilemma – the Bible gives an answer, the one you mock. But science hasn’t a clue – every time they think they do, they simply confirm the law of biogenesis – that life only comes from life – a statement so immutable that it IS called a law. Only when science can demonstrate the origination of life apart from a creator does you statement take on the significance  to dispel your demonstration of your scientific illiteracy and irrational opposition to evidence.

    Who are you quoting? Its hogwash. Assuming there was a “remarkable” molecule, it would certainly not be self replicating. In fact, the whole story is a fairy tale. I don’t think even any reputable scientist accepts this.

    You truly need to read about the Urey experiments. What they proved was that life’s building blocks could NOT start in that supposed environment. The amino acids that were produced had to be immediately sequestered or they disappeared – the natural occurring aminos were orientated both right and left handed equally – they cancel each other out. Living organisms produce left handed aminos

    http://creation.com/shaking-hands-on-a-recent-creation

    Their assumption of the primitive environment was also false – they assumed no oxygen was present. But there was water, and it cannot form in the absence of oxygen; there is evidence of oxygen in the “earliest” rocks. Oxygen would have destroyed any naturally occurring aminos instantly, hence the need for sequestration

    Jesus is the only one who was raised from the dead and seen by hundreds of witnesses.  The rest of the religions leaders are dust.  That is how we know to believe Jesus when he said “I am the way the truth and the life, no one see the Father God except through me”  The rest are dust in the ground.  And if they walk the talk then you see God confirming the Word of God by sign, Miracles and Wonders following.  NOT judging to agree all who reject the son’s death for them that only the wrath of the Father remains.

    To read the bible to be more than words or a book you need to ask the spirit of God (Holy Spirit) to give you revelation to what he has wrote.  Otherwise you will have blinders on and not understand it.  I know it was my case until I got a real relationship with Jesus.  Like he above said we hate the sinful act but not the person who is committing it.  Only God Judges whether one is saved or is judged.  Many have been saved at the last minute because they repent of their lives and he is merciful.

     ”and how the love of God is unlimited, but I guess this is not true if someone is homosexual.”  Someone being an active  homosexual is defiance of (rebellion against) God. If you feel you are a mutant  (a variation from the norm) and have an attraction to other men, then the Biblical position is to remain celibate. For those who have mutated to have an attraction to animals, we (well, most people anyway) also expect them to remain celibate, so I don’t see the issue. And people with those attractions can and do change – the apostle Paul wrote of those in the Corinthian church and listed some of their former lives, including sodomy, and then stated “and such were some of you”. I known enough sodomites to be sure that this Biblical change can and does take place.

    That you still love a rebellious child is not because of his rebellion, but in spite of it. He may not think so, because he wants his rebellion celebrated, not corrected.

    When Adam has his children, perhaps several hundred, there were no genetic defects in the human genome, and no restrictions against intra family marriage. many of the Patriarchs in the OT married very close – to the point of marrying your half sister, in the case of Abraham. Marriage was still between a man and a woman. And NOT between parent and child. By the time Adam died, there were already whole civilizations in existence. The US is less than 400 years old – Adam lived for twice that.

    were born on the wrong place. Faith is a b*tch. ”

    Your big problem is not about the spiritual destiny of those who have not heard the gospel, but where YOU are going to spend eternity. All your obfuscations aside – the simple issue is that you cannot claim, as an aboriginal may, that you didn’t know the gospel or didn’t have an opportunity to respond. You will only be able to state that you were in rebellion against God, and had no interest in His forgiveness, and therefore willingly bear the full burden for the sins you have committed, bot the least of which is your intentional rebellion against God.

    As far as the aboriginals are concerned – Romans, in the first few chapters explains that the punishment will be in accordance with the knowledge because God is just and loving, that God has given mankind a witness within his own spirit, even if they do not have the gospel explained to them.

    I trust God to do what is right. I don’t think you are capable of judging the Creator of the universe, morally or intellectually. I you were, then you would be God’s equal. Lucifer tried that – how did that work out?

     ”How do we not know, that the Koran is the one, that is right here? What
    is the proof, that their God is not the only and true God, and it is
    yours?  There are so many religions. What makes you absolutely sure,
    that Christianity is the one and only. There is no wonder, that religion
    is based on faith (every religion), there is nothing else you can rely
    on. No facts, no evidence. ”

    One proof of the validity of the value of a sacred text is its reliability when predicting the future. The Bible excels at this – the koran is a total failure. Even the existence of the koran is the result of accurate predictions in the Jewish Torah – that Abraham’s two sons would be as numerous as the stars of the sky, that they would constantly be at war, and that one man’s descendents would be as wild donkeys. That was 4000 years ago. The Bible is about one third prophesy, all it if that has happened, has happened exactly as predicted. The current nation of Israel and its surrounding by enemies was prophesied in Daniel, Ezekiel, and other books. The prediction by Jesus that the Temple of Herod – one of the great buildings of its day, would be torn apart, stone by stone, was literally and completely fulfilled, because of a design feature in Herod’s plans. So many prophesies, all accurate. The koran on the other hand has no such track record. It is in almost every way a poor attempt at mimicking the Bible, Its contents are close to idle babble, and contain NO moral, predictive or scientific value.

    So you are wrong – there is an incredible amount of evidence from science, archeology and history, and a world full of facts to support Christianity.

     You 3 showed absolute ignorance of the whole discussion of the age of the earth
    yesterday. There are a lot of Bible believing people who listen to you and you
    treated the subject like a big joke. Because you didn’t know even the basics of

    biblical reasons by the way) in a young earth was an idiot. That is the same
    idea that those who went after Rubio have. Your impromptu online investigations
    and inability to comprehend what you found only made things worse. You should
    get someone on the show that understands the reasoning behind the young earth
    idea and give them some time to intelligently frame the discussion. The 3 of
    you acted like buffoons and stomped all over the Bible in a mocking
    condescending way. If you don’t understand the subject matter, get educated or
    stay away from it – instead of sounding more like Ed Schultz and Chris Matthews
    than GBTV. 

    By the way David C.  I suppose what you lack in
    substance you cover up with profanity.  Sound science DOES back up a
    young earth model.

    All you critics that just spew evolutionist
    talking points.  Do a web search for a downloadable book called the
    “evolution cruncher.”  If your honest, it will answer all of the cliche
    questions that you are so proud of.

    “Blindly believing stuff written by ancient people who didn’t even floss,
    thought the earth was flat and that evil spirits caused milk to spoil
    is the way to go.”

    I doubt there was J&J many years ago. But the Bible teaches the bible is a sphere (not flat), suspended on nothing, as opposed to the science of the day which was, as is often the case, wrong! The first five books of the Bible were compiled by Moses, and are quite different than the historical records we have from the Egyptians for whom he was being primed as a prince. Either he made up the stories he wrote, or Someone told him about it. I’ve never heard about evil spirits spoiling milk, but then again there have been so many weird and erroneous “facts” of science that maybe I missed that one. Dark energy and matter, alchemy, recapitulation, Oort’s cloud – all scientific myths that have been pretty well debunked.

    Speaking of Moses, the Levitical laws were the worlds first public health manual, and was about 3000 years ahead of science – the sort of thing you might expect if an intelligent creator gave a manual to those He created so they could live healthy and happy lives.

    So I reject your concept that I believe anything blindly. Maybe when I was an evolutionist, but not now!

    The disconnect is that evolution isn’t science – it is purely faith. As you say, science does not require faith – any tenant of science can be repeated and observed – that which cannot be is not science. There is more science against the theory, science that has to be ignored to “follow” evolution.

    I didn’t get your point of abiogenesis – that is the holy grail of evolutionary fantasy. It has never been observed – the number of science projects that have been done to study the issue tend to prove abiogenesis is impossible. The Wistar conferences, Francis Crick’s studies, and many others bear out this thought.

     Interesting that those “facts” for which the current scientism crowd fight so hard will all be discounted as irrelevant, fraudulent or “old thought” by the next gaggle of scientists.

    God’s time is not measured in the same way as ours. The Bible says, to God a thousand years is like a day. So the creation took at least 6000 years to complete. The dinosaurs may have lived and become extinct within that 6000 year period or before the time of Noah.
    I believe God created many more people of different races. Adam and Eve were only the first two people to create a human life on their own.

     ”evolution does not try and state that randomness brings order. It states
    that all animals have a shared ancestor and that all animals evoled
    from there depending on the enviorment that they lived in. What are the
    preconditions of observation that you are speaking of. And your telling
    me that the theary of creation is true just because someone wrote it in a
    book and no one prove that is real. we can study the effects of
    evolution.”

    Corey, you are playing with words. Astrophysicists use the term evolution to refer to the beginning of the solar system, the formation of elements, and the accretion of planets. They apply it also to organisms – it is a word with as many meanings as people seem to want.

    To perform ANY of these “evolutions” there has to be order out of chaos, if it all stared with an infinite explosion of random nothing. To deny that simply makes you look uninformed and illiterate.

    There is NO evidence of any shared ancestor from science – the “Cambrian Explosion” shows enormous numbers of lifeforms all appearing for the first time, all fully and completely formed, with NO intermediates. Dr. Collin Patterson, the lifelong director of the British Natural Museum, was asked about why his books on evolution never showed any intermediate forms; his (honest) reply was that if he knew of any, he would surely have included them, but there was no one that he could make a case for.

    And some of those creatures had functions that were impossible to harmonize with evolution – eg the eye of the Trilobite was the most complex eye known for a long time, and only recently were computers powerful enough to even do the calculations on its compound lenses. Tremendous complexity with no less complex ancestry. And it was made of calcite, to boot!

    Your statement about common ancestry is a statement of faith – there is NO science to support that. It is a belief system, not science. Like Oorts cloud, common ancestry is a philosophical necessity, not a scientific observation – necessary to support an unscientific theory..

    http://creation.com/science-creation-and-evolutionism-refutation-of-nas

    Now as to your statement about studying the effects of evolution – I think you have this backwards. When we study any science dealing with life, we see NO example of evolution – we do see thousands, maybe millions of examples of entropy – the opposite of evolution. Extinctions is often caused by entropy. We see it every day when there are Siamese twins born, or one eyed animals or animals with an extra leg – all deterioration of the genome, not improvements, ever.  Those bacteria you hear about that have mutated to resist an anti-biotic are not evolution – they are entropy, as almost every single one, maybe by now EVERY one, have a specific deterioration in their genome that allows them to be unaffected by the anti-biotic. That is a loss of genetic information, not the gain in genetic information needed for evolution.

    I’ve read many of these posts and its rather amazing to me just how many different opinions abound on this one subject alone, and most here claim to understand God, what a telling sign of ignorance of the so called religious …

    You are about the closest I’ve read so far, of having the simple truth, as you have stated, it’s a rather lengthy study, but at this late date in man history of man occupying the earth, you’d think most of us, if not all, would know by now.

    But by not knowing the absolute simple answer, only keeps those who profess a belief in a higher Being, looking like, well, goof-balls in the eyes of those who do not hold such views. On and on the argument goes and nothing in the form of advancing the truth is achieved. Glenn seems to think, that its no big deal, but he is wrong, for one, science does back up the bible 100% and if more of us truly did care – we would know the answer, then when the question comes up, the only answer possible is given, If more of us proved the truth of the matter to ourselves, then there would potentially be millions more who would understand a more important question – “is there a God?” making life more worth living, in other words – giving our frail human existence more meaning than simply serving the self during our lives. But after reading many, if not most, of these posts – who can blame so many of our peers for not believing in God.

    This simple question, exposes the real reason why so many who fill our ranks, do not – and will not – except the reality that there most definitely is a divine creator. Religious Confusion has been the real cause for wars – crime – and all other evils the world over. Ask this same simple question to ten different religious leaders, and you will get at least ten different answers.- Sad

     Janet, you’re just trying to cram long periods of time into the Bible because the culture has convinced you that you must do so.  But, we aren’t free to just make things up. 

    The thousand years are as a day and a day is as a thousand years passage – taken in context – simply means that God is not constrained by time in the same way that we are.  It doesn’t mean that we can substitute 1000 yrs for an “evening and morning” day whenever we want to.

    The only reason that people try to stretch out the days is because they believe scientists have real evidence to support their theories.  They really don’t.  Check out the free e-book that I suggested in an earlier post.  It’s an eye opener.

    As for races, there is only one race, the human race.  Acts 17 tells us that God made all men of “one blood.”  The genetic information for skin color and other traits were all present in Adam and Eve’s gene pool.  As parts of the human family became relatively isolated in certain parts of the globe, various genetic traits became dominant as the gene pool narrowed.

    The only evidence you have that God “created many more people of different races” is your own imagination.

    If you start tampering with the 1st 11 chapters of Genesis, you may as well just chuck the whole Bible, because you won’t know what is true and what isn’t.  You also won’t be able to trust anything Jesus (and several others) said, because he taught that the creation account was accurate and literal.

    As for the dinosaurs, their numbers probably began to dwindle after the flood of Noah’s day about 4,300 years ago or so.  The cataclysm of the flood was so dramatic that it altered the planet forever and the conditions were no longer conducive for the largest of these reptiles.  Even so, there are records of dragons (the termed dinosaur – meaning terrible lizard – was not coined until about 100 yrs ago)  throughout recorded history until fairly recent times.

    It all lines up perfectly with the Bible if we really look at the evidence.  The big bang is a big dud.  Spontaneous life is mathematically impossible.  Natural selection proved to be a failed theory to prove evolution of species.  Mutations ended up being a dead end also.  And punctuated equilibrium is nothing more than a grasping at straws by people who had nothing better to try.  Saying – by blind faith – “We know evolution occurred, natural selection and mutations don’t work, so it MUST be …” isn’t scientific.  It’s desperation.  At the end of the day, you can dress up the arguments, but that is where we are at.

    It takes a lot less faith to believe the Bible than it takes to believe the scientists.

     ”God’s time is not measured in the same way as ours. The Bible says, to
    God a thousand years is like a day. So the creation took at least 6000
    years to complete. The dinosaurs may have lived and become extinct
    within that 6000 year period or before the time of Noah.I believe God
    created many more people of different races. Adam and Eve were only the
    first two people to create a human life on their own. Because before
    they ate from the tree of knowledge they didn’t even know they were
    naked and afterwards God said to women “I will make your pains in
    childbearing very severe;with painful labor you will give birth to
    children.Your desire will be for your husband,and he will rule over
    you.” ”

    Not to put to much of a point on it, but you missed the second part of that verse which says that a thousand years is as a day. You missed the point – but you got the general idea: God’s time is not ours – He lives outside time. Time was created for mankind, not God. That said, your statement that creation took 6000 years is wrong, scientifically and Biblically. One of the heresies in the NT church was that God in fact created the world all at once. The fact is that God could have, but didn’t. His 6 days of creation and one day of rest were an example to man.

    The dragons (the historical name for dinosaurs) lived with man. They were on the ark. Job writes about them as common knowledge in Chapters 40 and 41 (ignore the names attributed to the description by 17th century translators. Elephants have tails like cedars?) They may well still be alive today. There are many drawings and carvings of them all over the world, so they had to be a part of people’s lives in living history. Those that were not on the ark drowned and were buried by and in water, just what we see in these bone pits in Alberta and Montana.

     Actually, the DON’T agree on much. No accepted theory. There are no intermediate fossils so Jay Gould came up with the theory of Punctuated Equillibrium. This theory was proven true because there were no intermediate fossils ;-) Then there are all the loonies who freely admit that there was no possibility of life forming on earth. Francis Crick, the co-discoverer of DNA, then decided that the life was seeded on earth by other civilizations. Others agree with him. Since there is no agreement on evolution, its hard to know just what people actually mean by the term.

     Mad cow disease was very likely not in existence then. It may well have devolved (entropic mutation) from a much more benign virus. Since the DNA may be similar to other viruses, it seems to be the folding of the protein guided by an errant chaparone protein that causes the problem with Mad Cow. What one would expect as possible from entropic mutations.

    “Mad cow disease was very likely not in existence then.” How can you even propose such a thing? This is a disease that was known to be not uncommon in Africa and other parts of the world. Because scientists have not yet determined where it originated (sheep? monkeys? cows?) has no bearing. It and other diseases that are detrimental to mankind have caused humans who could discern cause and effect to shun certain things, yet that reasoning has escaped others. Because you wish it to be so, does not make it so.

    I’ll give it a shot.

    How did non living material become a living creature?

    Simplistically, electricity.

    But, I think you want more, like how did the first organisms come to exist on Earth? Again, minerals, heat, water, wind, the atmosphere, pressure and electricity, including of course volcanoes and magnetism. These things, created a living Earth, and all the things that sprouted therefrom, which is a direct quote from Genesis. Earth created life and us. We couldn’t exist anywhere else.

    Now, you might be asking yourself, okay, hot shot, where did Earth come from? Again, the best speculation is that, as Kris Kristoferson said it best, we come from the stars. We’re space dust, which over billions and billions and billions and even longer than that congealed for lack of a better word into our Solar System and planets, and, yes at the end of the day, somehow, someway we’re the end result. I think it was Bill Hicks who said it best. We are the Universe’s answer to self-reflection–we’re the Watchers–which is a mighty lofty view of ourselves no doubt, but it’s not the first time humans have compared themselves to all mighty beings.

    Then again, if you’ve read this far, the real, hard-boiled, cold stone truth is that not one human has ever been able to answer these questions, not one, and certainly nothing written down in a book has changed that.

     Let me state again, viruses do NOT evolve – they mutate, and in every instance the mutated virus is not as robust as the original, notwithstanding tjat they survive an antibiotic. The mutation that gives that resistance takes away from the virus ability to do something else normally. Poodles were bred from wolves, but you cannot breed them back to wolves – that genetic material is forever lost. Same with viruses

    Evolution requires the addition of new and improved genetic information, and there is no known way this can happen. Information can only come from intelligence. I allow that intelligence was involved in creation; you do not. On that issue alone, your theory is false.

    is an interesting article related to your statement. Dr. Sanford knows a bit about genetics – he  invented the gene gun that is used worldwide by scientists manipulating genes.

     Humans were made in the image of God. We sinned, lost the relationship we had with God, and have suffered from it ever since. We, along with the rest of creation are suffering from thermodynamics – entropy. We are suffering from new diseases, diseases that were unknown 500 years ago. Health care, better food, better medicine and better education has done nothing to improve the human genome. In your lifetime you will suffer many hundreds of mutations – you also inherited some from your parents, which is why incest is banned – similarly entropied DNA from a single pair bred together solidifies the deformity. I was a dog breeder – were used science to determine which dogs were bred. But for example Shepherds have genetic hip dyspepsia in many streams. A genetic defect solidified by line breeding. Mutts don’t usually suffer from these genetic deformities.

     I believe he was right. Most Christians I know have had that kind of wrestling with God. An untested faith is probably not faith at all. Having said that – questioning and study does lead one to a better understanding of, and firmer faith in, God. There is a website called Socrates in the City, and their subheading is ” the unexamined life is not worth living”. I came to my convictions at the cost of many friends, and for a while estranged parents. Leaving evolution for a more logical scientific explanation of existence has been hard on many people. Last summer I was at a conference with perhaps 30 leading scientists, all of them former atheists and evolutionists, many tenured professors, many well known for their contributions to science – several lost their jobs because of rejecting evolution. The scientific community has always rejected innovation that contradicts the official line

     That is a singularly stoooopid statement. Those who don’t learn from history are bound to repeat it. We know socialism has never ever been successful. Why would we try it yet again? The Bible was the textbook upon which the union was formed. Why should we turn our back on it now? Nothing in US constitution or founding makes any sense apart from a thorough understanding of the Bible. What better is there to rely on?

    Under the circumstances, and with the resources at hand, I think Truman’s av5tions were the kindest possible. How many more people would have dies had he not ended the war as he did? Armchair quarterbacks have the luxury of hindsight which he did not have.

    Another possible 10 years of imperial war, genocide in China and many Asian cultures by the Japanese all stopped when that bomb dropped. It was a known end vs an unknown end. And that the Japanese were also working on nukes made the decision and the timing justified.

    God does not cause suffering, he allows it because we have, as a species, in a cause and effect way as we have turned our back on Him and done things OUR way – ways that cause disasters, illness, and terror. God is not the author of any of that – and I think it tacky that he gets blamed for so much that is the natural result of our wickedness as a race. God will right it soon – when we have exhausted our stopidity in rejecting His input.

     Think a bit, Corey. If a dragon died in a forest, its carcass would be scavenged quickly. That leaves no fossil, or anything else. Animal bones  don’t last long, and covering a 40 foot high carcass would take a lot of time.

    Fossils MUST be buried quickly after death, and must be shielded from oxygen.

    So normal death is not how fossils were made. In the Biblical account, millions upon millions of animals were all drowned and quickly covered with waterborn sediment during the flood.  That is exactly what we see: millions of species all buried almost instantly in sediment that became rock, in many cases with huge burial beds that extend across whole states. Fish that drowned because there was to much sediment for them to extract oxygen from the water. Bivalves as well.

    There are two types of fossils that are best explained from the Biblical model, because the millions of years model cannot: the fossilization of soft-bodied species like jellyfish and polystrate fossils. Both would be a natural occurrence in a Biblical flood. But few people even know the issue exists.

    Polystrat fossils are found all over the world. Some of these fossilized trees extend through 40 or more feet of sedimentary rock. It is obvious that they didn’t sit there without decaying while a million years of sediment gradually covered them. And to make the question more interesting, in many cases the roots are at the top, not the bottom.

    http://creation.com/polystrate-fossils-evidence-for-a-young-earth

    This is just simple observational science. And it leads away from Darwinian evolution, and dramatically supports the Biblical creation account. Your ignorance of the subject may be excused – there seems to be a deliberate attempt to ban any knowledge of the Biblical account from most institutes of learning. But learn to question everything – many things are not as they seem.

    Remember that for thousands of years science thought the earth was flat, that blood letting would heal you, that there was a reservoir of meterors in “Oorts Cloud” and millions other silly scientific “facts”.  Everything I was taught as evolution is now false. Everything you have learned as evolution “fact” will in fact be laughed at in another 50 years. Evolutionists cannot agree on the basics of evolution, and neither party can prove they are right or their opponent is wrong. But they all agree that God didn’t do it. How scientific!

     An interesting theory I’ve been working on – if the earth was created between Ushers 6000 years and my 15000 years ago, anything that would be C14 dates from that period would display infinite age, because there was no c14 in the atmosphere.There still is no C14 equillibrium, so any c14 date is only comparative.

    I think you have this backwards. There is NO evidence to support your theory. The evidences given to support one aspect of it are contradicted by another. Eg Dragons have supposedly been extinct for 64 Million years. Collagen cannot exist beyond 100,000 years. Yet Mary Sweitzer found three (so far) different specimens (Rex, Hadrosaurous and Triceratops) each with flexible blood vessels, red blood products and collagen easily identified. Those two scientific theories are opposed to each other.

    The interesting fact here is that none of those specimens have been tested for C14, nor will the labs allow them to be tested. What are they afraid of if they are so convinced of their theory?

    The Biblical account removes the mystery of how life started, and based strictly on science, is far more adequate to fit the observable evidence around us; why we have millions of fossils in sedimentary rock, why animals specialize, why the geological columns are as often inverted as right side up, the major geological formations of our world, and most of the mysteries of the cosmos, like why there are still comets when comets cannot last more than perhaps 20,000 years, and why small moons like Io are still volcanic when according to evolutionary theory they should be stone cold. Then of course, the evolutionist has to explain the Big bang, and bingo, we are right back to the fact of God and the Biblical account, based only on the evidence.

     a rather irrational and anti-historic statement.

Try reading Josephus, Tacitus, the letters of Origen, and many other historians of the era. You will change your mind. Now we just found a marble edict that made it a crime in Rome to say that the body of Jesus was taken from the tomb ( to be brief about it) You are simply speaking from ignorance, as if your ignorance made it so!

    God created the earth in six – twenty-four-hour-days, and on the seventh twenty-four-hour period of time, he rested from his labors – creating the weekly Sabbath. Thus the Sabbath was made for man. It is also the day of week that God commanded humankind to rest from their labors. Something by the way, that most professing Christians no longer do. They continue to break the fourth commandment of God and our nation, the world for that matter, is paying the heavy price. All anyone has to do, is look around and realize that man’s problems have become more troubling than we can solve. It boils down to understanding God and what he wants us humans to do.

    I must admit, that at least those who do not profess the name of Christ, all seemingly stick to the same general ideology. But, when it comes to the so called religious among us – every irrational conceivable thought is and continues to be expressed, when it comes to relaying on the information of who and what God is and what he has in store for mankind.

    The story-thread at the top of the page reads – “how old is the earth” – good question, it speaks volumes to this world encompassing misunderstanding, for it exposes an ignorance of the religious among us and a lack of understanding, concerning the simple knowledge of God.

    Truth be told, if those professing religious knowledge, where in an American court of law, the case would be thrown out. In order for anyone to prove a point, one must have 2,3 sometimes even 3 or 4 witnesses to said event. These post on this topic alone, substantiate nothing more than religious confusion. Who is right among these many posts, or for that matter, better stated, is anybody right?

    Is there a way to know for certain? Does the bible give enough detail that all may prove the simple answer to themselves. Lets face it, history unfolds only one way – so why do so many different tails  especially in the religious community abound? If history played itself out in a certain way, what is that way?

    Can those from the scientific community, agree with those from the religious community? And visa-versa…well as we will see….the answer is a resounding yes.

    The question is “how old is the earth” and to get to the bottom of answer, we must know some pre-history, in other words, was there anything existing before that time period, if so, what.

    By using the bible itself  – by the way the best possible source – we can know for certain what the truth of the matter is and its due time we find out the answer for ourselves, to this challenging mysterious puzzle.

    The only way to do it, is one step at a time and for this particular question, we must travel back in time, and, as far back as the human mind can conceive. Obviously, afterward, there will still remain those who just won’t except the idea of a divine God, but in answering this particular question, the subject of how old the earth is, will only be addressed at this time.

    What was here before the earth – before the so-called big-bang-theories, or any accounts of creation? The bible clearly tells us…please follow along, who knows, you might even learn something…

    “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him, all things were made; without him nothing was made that was made.” – Here we find in the opening verse’s of the book of John, that nothing at all existed – except for two beings who were called God. As a matter of fact, they had exceptional creative ability. So what were some of the things they created and what came first on their list?

    In the Old Testament book of Job, God is having a conversation with a man named Job. God was explaining to him, that it was he, who created the physical universe and when he brought forth this magnificent wonderful work, the angels were already here. Notice what chapter 38:7 has to say, ” while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy..” There is  much more to this study, but to keep this post as short as possible, I will give only minimal information, but enough I feel, that what is presented should get those who read these words some food for thought.

    So far, we find that nothing existed but two beings who were called God. The next thing we are  told is, it was “they who created all things”. The first thing on the creative list, had to of been the angels…lets face it…what else would explain their being in “awe and shouting for joy”? It was the display of God creating the known physical universe before their very eyes. One can only imagine what the spectacle sight must have offered. That means – God- angels – universe – and in that order, and, that this is the earliest known information to man.

    To cut this post even shorter, I will continue the rest with knowledge that most are familiar, at least  the greater majority.

    God instructed the angels in all ways that would lead to happiness and productive well-being. He needed to see for himself, if these perfectly created angels, would follow his perfect laws. So he placed one-third of them on the earth to test them. The bible does not say for sure, but most likely, it may have been millions or even billions of years. The dinosaurs have been proven by science, to have lived and walked upon the earth for thousands, even millions of years. These physical dinosaurs, could have very easily roamed the planet simultaneously with the spiritual angels. Both would co-exist in peace and harmony as long as the angels remained sinless as God had intended.

    Therein lies the problem, these perfect created angels eventually broke the laws of God and sinned. Within a matter of time, which might have been millions of years or more, every angel that had been placed on the earth, decided to rebel – even to the point of waging war in heaven against God. Again, we are not told exactly how long this spiritual battle was waged – but the bible does say, that the (now fallen) angels, were thrown back to the earth by God himself. This cataclysmic failure of following Gods direction, resulted in the earth becoming dark and void. I equate the angels demise as that of a meteorite slamming into the earth at hyper-sonic-speed, resulting in a dust cloud that soon enveloped the whole planet, killing the all dinosaur’s and every other life form that existed in pre-historic time.

    Obviously, God was not pleased at this end result, war is never a pretty thing. This angelic rebellion also explains the present decayed condition we find our solar system. To date scientists have not discovered any form of life, on the contrary,  the only discoveries have been  crater impact damage – from the heavenly bodies of our moon to Mars and frankly, everything our advanced telescopes have allowed mankind to lay his eyes on.

    In the opening first two verses of all the bible, found in the book of Genesis (which means the beginning of things) there is a little understood contrast, between verses one and two, of Chapter one, something that very few people have ever taken the time to consider. God creates everything perfectly, that is his divine nature and as I’ve already stated above, so far, verse one is found to be in agreement. Verse one simply says, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” -  Now in verse two it says, “Now the earth was” …..let me stop here and explain, that the word “was”…is a mistranslation, the correct translation should read…”became” – So I’ll write the verse in its original intended meaning, “Now the earth “became formless and void (or empty) darkness was over the surface of the deep and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters”

    What caused the earth to drastically change from its original perfectly created state, to something just the opposite? Well it was a direct result of the war in heaven and Satan and those who rebelled against God with him, were thrust back to the earth. Now once again, the bible isn’t clear on how long this state of decay lasted, that is, before God “renewed” the earth to a planet now able to sustain life…even human life, but it could have been millions, even billions of years. But I can tell you this, that from the time of that renewing – mankind has been here for almost six-thousand years.

    So how old is the earth – its as old as the universe for sure, the exact date cannot yet be determined by science, but suffice it to say, it is without a doubt, at least millions of years old. And if more of us, who proclaim they understand the God who creates all things, were able to understand the simple information that I’ve just presented, then there wouldn’t be the vast divide between religious thinkers – between themselves, nor would those, who do not profess a belief in a higher being, be so skeptical to take a chance and maybe prove God for themselves.

    All the answers are there – we simply have to seek them out.

     Why is it assumed that Conservative automatically equates to religiously fanatical?  I’m very much not religious at all (Deist to be specific, like many of the founders)  but I do believe in Freedom, the Constitution, and Small Government.  Not sure why someone automatically has to agree with the idea of Invisible Sky People to hold on to those values.  I find the idea that there are people that think the world is 5,000 years old to be utterly absurd.  But you’re free to believe it, and I’m free to disagree with you completely.  Beautiful thing, isn’t it?

     I’m so glad you were honest and called this speculation. No facts at all presented . . .

    Your quote from Genesis is surely unique. And certainly not an honest evaluation of  what the text says. Again, more speculation than fact!

    And you still haven’t answered where the stars come from, etc!

    And your statement that nothing written in a book answers that is also a failed speculation. The record given in Genesis is accurate scientifically, confirmed by science and history. Your statements, on the other hand contain nothing more accurate than song titles.

    If the Bible for the most part is true and I believe it is, except where man has changed it for his own purpose; what you wrote cannot be true.  GOD is indeed perfect as you say, therefore cannot create anything less than perfect.  On day six when Elohim looks at all that was created, HE says “very good”, exceeding perfection.

    According to what you wrote you have death long before the sin of man.  The Bible clearly states that death was the result of the sin of man, this is a major problem with your view.  Before man sinned there was NO death, nothing died; if it had GOD’s creation was not perfect and therefore GOD could not be perfect.

    You wrote about the Father (Adonai) and the Son (Yeshua) from John 1:1 and from Genesis 1:1, but you left out the Ruach Elohim (Spirit of GOD, Holy Spirit) in Genesis 1:2.  There were Three in the beginning.

    My friend, you are indeed correct about man being around 6,000 years old.  But he is only five days younger than the earth, two days younger than the sun, moon, universe, etc., one day younger than the fishes and birds and was created on the very same day as what is now referred to as dinosaurs; howbeit the mamals were created in the beginning of day six and man at the end of it.

    This is what the literal reading of Genesis chapter one says.  If you disregard this account, how can you or anyone say the WORD of GOD is true?

    Not billions, millions, or even 100′s of thousands, but right around 6000 years for the ALL OF IT!

    Have a Blessed Day,
    Shalom,

    What do you mean – ‘IF’ “the bible for the most part, is true”…It is written, “that man should not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. “Matthew 4:4 By what you have written here, gives the impression, that you might think you know what you’re talking about, but from what you say, it actually reveals your complete lack of basic biblical knowledge.

    The Bible is the Word of God in print, all of it. Therefore “all scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training for righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work” 2Timothy 3:16

    Jesus Christ is the Word, the Word was with God, and the word was God, see John 1:1 The bible is the living Word of God in print. In that printed word (also known as scripture) we are admonished to “Prove All Things, Hold Fast To That Which Is Good” – 1Thessalonians 5:21…It looks like you have some proving to do Mr Hays, for you seem to be holding on to ‘the wrong things’, things that lead you to error in your understanding of what is good. “Therefore God sends upon them strong delusion, to make them believe what is false, so that they may be condemned who did not believe the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” – 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12.

    Never did I say that God created anything less than perfect, that’s the problem with today’s fast-food-religion, if it doesn’t fit your personal taste…then simply move on to something more fattening. “For they are a rebellious people, lying sons, sons who will not hear the instruction of the Lord; who say to the seers, “See not” and to the prophets, “Prophecy not to us what is right; speak to us smooth things, prophecy illusions” Isaiah 30:10

    The bible is an instruction manual for mankind. In it, we find one third of its writing pertains to Laws, if followed, they lead to productive lives, for that of the individual, or even whole nations. Then, one third of its content documents historical events, written down for our benefit so that future generations might learn from past mistakes – or from- the righteous example set down by those who came before us. Then, and probably the most important, a whole third of the bible, is given over to prophetic events that will surly take place in these end-days – for-warning us of impending disaster because of the way we live. 90% of that prophecy is for our time today.

    Therefore, the bible is for and about mankind, although God has given us glimpses of what came before us, in fact, what came before anything, even the universe and the angels as my previous post describes.

    When God created the Holy Righteous Angels – He did it Perfectly. What most Self-Proclaimed-Christians fail to consider, is the essential ingredient of “individual choice” – God will not force anyone to choose the good over the bad. The angels were created at one time – all of them. These perfect “beings” were then given instruction in the Laws of God. They agreed to live by every word of God and then God placed them on planet earth to test that agreement…and this…Millions, possibly even billions of Years Ago. It is very telling for you to say, the earth is only six-thousand years old, it more than demonstrates your ignorance. Furthermore, by holding on to such wrong ideas, only perpetuates a lie, keeping potential new converts from ever taking God-or-Religion seriously. Shame on you and those like you, for holding on to the doctrines of men – rather than, the pure word of God, do you have a liking for leading others down the same dead end road as you have chosen, a path that leads to destruction and death.

    The angels decided, using the ‘gift of thought’ and the ‘freedom of choice’ to turn away from God. That does not make God imperfect, it makes the angels imperfect…that is, the one-third of the angels who were placed here on the earth (Revelation 12:4). God gave these angels everything they needed to do the job successfully. “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which did weaken the nations! – Isaiah 14:12

    That is also why God placed only one-third on the earth, just in case something like that were to happen. The remaining two-thirds will forever be righteous – as long as they remain in the presence of God they will not sin. After the fall of the angels, the earth became dark and void. That world was long before Mankind was created, if not, where did this Satan come from who tempted Adam and Eve. The only answer is that this tempter (The Devil) was already here, known as the former Archangel Lucifer who had been here for millions of years. Notice 2Peter 2:4-6 “For if God did not spare the angels that sinned, but cast them into prison (here on earth)and committed them to pits of nether gloom to be kept until the judgement (at Christ’s return); if God did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a herald of righteousness, with seven other persons, when he brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; if by turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes he condemned them to extinction and made them an example to those who were ungodly;” – These verses are written in sequential order of historical events. These verses show that universal sin, causes universal destruction – as evidenced by NASA Telescopes. Globe encompassing sin causes, worldwide destruction, as evidenced by the earth encompassing flood, and we know what happened to the twin cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. Read Isaiah, Chapter-14 and see also Ezekiel, Chapter-28 of how God placed the archangel Lucifer (a Cherub) on a throne on the earth. It was his duty to rule the earth using the laws of God…all went well, until rebellion set in and those perfect laws of God were broken. Verse-one of Genesis chapter-One, clearly states a perfect creation. Verse two on the other hand, implies something far removed from a state of perfection. David was inspired to write how God renewed the face of the earth, “Thou sendest forth thy Spirit, they are created; and thou re-newest the face of the earth” Psalms 104:30

    So from verse two (Chpt 1)in the book of Genesis, throughout the remainder of the creation account – it is talking about the renewing of the face of the earth.

    The DEATH OF MAN was caused by the SIN OF MAN an act brought on by the beguiling of Eve by a fallen angel, known today as Satan the devil. Don’t tell me that you haven’t noticed the prehistoric Dinosaur Bones that have fossilized over millions, perhaps billions of years. The bible is primarily concerned with the creation of man and the world that has been recorded over the past 6000 years. There is no record in the bible, nor in secular history of dinosaurs walking with and among mankind. Your futile attempt to argue the proof away, makes you look stupid. You turn away from God, logical thinking young people over to the false idea of a theory, that of evolution.

    Two cannot walk together unless they agree…so don’t call me your friend. By your stubbornness to win the argument, you actually are found to be fighting against God…I on the other hand, try to right the many wrongs of traditional thinking, found and taught in the numerous false doctrines of men about God.

    You limit God to three Beings – that is WRONG. There were TWO – God and the WORD (who was also God) The Holy Spirit IS WHAT THEY ARE COMPOSED OF AND IT IS THE TOOL OF HOW THEY CREATE…THE HUMANS WHO ARE SOMEDAY REBORN INTO THEIR FAMILY, OR KINGDOM, WILL ALSO BECOME GOD BEINGS…IN NO WAY IS GOD LIMITED – READ YOUR BIBLE!

    YOUR ARGUMENTS ARE A PREPOSTEROUS LIE!

    Nope. Natural Selection has been proven. However, evolution has NOT. And your claim that evolution is observable is a TOTAL farce, lol. NO ONE has EVER observed Darwinian evolution EVER in the ENTIRE history of this planet. Sorry. I know EXACTLY what I’m talking about and am using UP TO DATE sources. Yes, natural selection has been proven. Darwinian evolution, however, has NOT. They are NOT one in the same you know. Natural selection is NOT evolution. Natural selection is NOTHING more than an adaptation. Why an idiot like you would equate natural selection to evolution is just ludicrous. It’s an insult to established science.

    For those who are interested in knowing the position of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Darwinian Evolution and the Age of the Earth, please visit http://www.josephsmithforum.org/research/faqs/science.  The Joseph Smith Foundation has done several years of intensive research into the history of the relations between the LDS Church on these issues, ranging from age of the earth, macro-evolution, the Literal Fall and the Literal Flood.

    Agreed. My point was simply that everything…and I mean everything, comes back to faith.
