There, their and they're. It's really that simple.

I don't know. Good question. Some read the bible and take it literally which its not meant to be. Others know it was written in more than one form which includes poetic form.

"young Earth creationists differ from other creationists in that they believe in a strict literal interpretation of the Bible regarding the age of the Earth. This contrasts with old Earth creationists, who believe that the six creation days of the Book of Genesis may be interpreted metaphorically and who accept the scientifically determined age of Earth and the universe.[6]"

To me it does not really matter either way. Personally I go with God could create anything aged to whatever he wanted however he wanted. Its kind of Akin to someone arguing Adam was created to be 24 years old and not 19.

They were raised into this belief.

And if your old, your not changing your faith for no science and education.

Its called fanaticism and fundamentalism.

Its just like being muslim, they all are required to believe in nonsense.

Not really out.
It means that anyone stupid enough to actually
try to comprehend the entire universe (And our bodies)
are a result of an explosion is truly a major league
moron.

To state that there is A God, and HE did it
totally satisfies my soul.

It doesn't really matter WHEN He did it,
or even HOW, but that HE DID IT.

Q: If there was EVER NOTHING, what could there be now?

The scientist that proved the earth is ~4.5 billion years old, later was instrumental in having tetra-ethyl lead removed from gasoline.

Turns out the tetra-ethyl lead was contaminating the environment, which interfered with his experiments.

I'm just glad lead is gone from fuel. Except in aviation. We don't need that toxic crap.

Doesn't matter what you believe. When you examine it, we've had at least one miracle:

The existence of anything at all.

Sure would make more sense if there were NOTHING, wouldn't it?

Once you comprehend THAT, comprehending God is a little easier.

Yes, the Bible was written by man. Yes, man is not perfect. But guided by the holy spirit, there is truth if you look for it.

It is folly to accept every word of the Bible and it is folly to reject every word of the Bible.

It is also folly to kill others because they believe something different than you. Anyone who understands Jesus Christ understands that there is no way he would condone any of that. Especially done in his name.

Unsubstantiated.

Its only in your imagination, if you imagine it to be.

Holy spirit to these ancient primitive authors, meant positive conscious thought. Nothing more.

They also labeled mortal humans as divine.

Contexts have changed from 2000 years ago.

When guided by peace, love, and a want to understand, it is impossible to fully reject spirituality.

YEC has little to do with spirituality.

It has everything to do with discounting facts because it differs from ones uneducated religious beliefs.

Theism is fine, YEC is unacceptable in this modern age, and is defined as fanaticism.

So true.

The bible has epic beauty, and has stood the test of time.

It ruins everything to read it as literal in all places.

Nonsense.
Nope, it's not....

In the late 1940s and early 1950s, Clair Cameron Patterson accidentally discovered the pollution caused by TEL in the environment while determining the age of the earth. As he attempted to measure lead content of very old rocks, and the time it took uranium to decay into lead, the readings were made inaccurate by lead in the environment that contaminated his samples. He was then forced to work in a clean room to keep his samples uncontaminated by environmental pollution of lead. After coming up with a fairly accurate estimate of the age of the earth, he turned to investigating the lead contamination problem by examining ice cores from countries such as Greenland. He realized that the lead contamination in the environment dated from about the time that TEL became widely used as a fuel additive in gasoline. Being aware of the health dangers posed by lead and suspicious of the pollution caused by TEL, he became one of the earliest and most effective opponents of its use.

EEngineer is completely correct, Patterson is a true unsung hero!

There was a real fight with the oil industry and associated politicians. They were not happy with his findings for obvious reasons. We should all be very grateful that he persevered and eventually facilitated the political backing required to clean up petrol.
