Age Of the Creationist Earth
If the creationists were correct nothing should date older than 6,020 years. Yet we have starlight, fossils, living trees, ice cores, sediments, human artifacts, DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) all dated with variety of means considerably older than 6,020 years.
The best creationists can come up with is God faked the universe to look 13.82 billion years old and earth 4.543 billion years old. Just because in theory your magic god could do that is not evidence he did. If he did such a thing, surely that is what he wants you to believe in his perfect deception. How impertinent to pretend you have detected some flaw in his work! I would think in creationist logic the there is no doubt about the authorship of mountains, but a tiny weeny doubt about the authorship of the bible since fallible humans were admittedly involved. So the mountains are a more certain authority than the bible. Non-fundamentalist Christians are comfortable with an age of the earth and an age of the universe that matches the observations, so why are creationists embarrassing themselves with endless lies to cover up the obvious truth?~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
