If you believe in a young earth ....

... do you believe in a young universe? Or is it possible that it is billions of years old?

  • Yes I do.... believe in a Young earth but I am not sure about the Universe , I think that the black empty Universe has always been.... until He placed the stars in the sky and everything else in it which was around the time earth was formed.

  • Hmmm... Good Question... I don't think there are to many Young Earthers on here though...

  • According to this site, yes.

    I'm not a new earther, but my brother who is frequently uses the 'logic' from here.

  • I do not think it is a science vs God sort of world. I certainly don't know God's idea of time. Science talks about theories. But yes I think the Earth is very, very old and it become older has science changes it's theories. Remember the old testament is a history of the people of Israel. I am sure there were many before them.

  • I think it may be. I have wondered but I always thought that this is where the angels were before man. :)

    Thanks for the link .... they cite Exodus 20, but I believe they are taking it out of context. Genesis only describes the creation of the earth, not the universe.

  • Shane, I like your answer except that even the universe is in a constant state of atrophy which means that it is finite and not infinite.

  • The Bible says that before He created the Earth there was chaos. I have no proof, but I think that the universe may have been that dark chaos. By creating the stars and the planets God brought order to that chaos.
