Do you believe that the earth is really only 6,000 to 10,000 years old? If so, how do you explain all the scientific data that points to the earth being much, much, much older? How do you explain the dinosaurs? Mountains? The Grand Canyon? The Ancient civilizations? And if you believe that the scientists are wrong, please keep in mind that these are the same scientists that are making your medicines, MRI machines, chemotherapy, automobiles, cell phones, computer chips, video games, and the list goes on and on. So if you think they are fundamentally wrong about the age of earth, why do you trust them in so many other areas of your life?Answer Question

No, there is overwhelming evidence to support the idea that the earth is older than 10,000 years. However, I do believe that God created everything and that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God! Everything asserted as true in the Bible is asserted by the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit doesn't lie. However, the bible is not making scientific assertions and people will draw erroneous conclusions if they treat the text as if it was.
Check out the article "Evolutionary Creationism" The purpose of the Bible is to teach us that God is the Creator, and not how the Father, Son and Holy Spirit created.
