Someone on my facebook friends list posted that she was looking for an american history book that doesn't teach that the earth is billions of years old.

Before I planned to comment I decided to look up reasoning as to why she wanted to leave that out so I didn't look stupid.  Ok so Science says one thing, then the bible says another.  What do you believe? 


I am going with Science and that it is close to 5 billion years old.


*UPDATE*

Well.. I had to unfriend. It was full of comments like this. I
f this is where the world is going, I don't want to see the future.

Billions of years old. Most Christians I know don't even believe that its only 6000 or whatever the bible says.

Your friend needs to find a private school that doesn't care about science.

The earth is billions of years old.

I go with science, because they are able to calculate back to even when the big bang occurred. Plus, I feel the bible is mostly fiction (my opinion - you do not have to agree).
