Over the years, many so called scientists have tried to establish the age of the Earth and the universe. Depending upon who is making the calculations, the Earth is anywhere between millions and up to billions of years old, according to them. It seems strange that these people cannot arrive at a consistent figure, but each one has their own opinions and theories. Christians believe what the Bible tells us and that is that the Earth is about eight or nine thousand years old. We have a tendency to argue this point, but there is one thing that we may not have considered. As we think about the Earth being created by God, we have a tendency to include the entire universe with those thoughts, and this may be wrong. The very first verse in the Bible “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth”, there is no mention of the universe…. In fact, since God always was, we can argue that the universe always was. The Bible only speaks about the Earth and nowhere in the Bible is there any mention of any other planets or galaxies, so it is certainly possible that the rest of the universe already existed… Now, how God created the Earth is not given to us, but for all we know, God may have taken other smaller planets and formed the Earth. And on these planets were relics of those planets’ past which we assume to be from the Earth. The point is that it does not make any difference how God made the Earth, the point is that we trust and believe that He did as and when He said that He did !!!
Now, when we consider evolution as the way humans were created, it almost seems ridiculous to believe this theory. There is one thing that eliminates all aspects of evolution. Nothing can be greater than itself !!! No matter how many things that we put together, the result can only be the greatest part. If a frog gets hit with lightening, he cannot become a fish. What he becomes is a dead frog…Man has created nothing and he never will because he does not have that ability. Only God has that power. Certainly man has altered many things, but they are just combinations of elements given to us by God.
Do not be confused by believing that supposedly intelligent people have found the answers because for as many intelligent people, there are as many different opinions. And, that is all that they are, opinions. In their research, they grasp onto that information that proves their theory and disregard any information that weakens their arguments. This is not unusual, it is the nature of man. Because these people are highly educated does not mean that they are smart, just educated !!!
Every answer to every question that man needs in order to get through this life and hopefully into the next one is in the Bible. All of these other questions have absolutely no effect on our lives, they are just presented to create doubt. And we all know the author of doubt !!!
