Two views on the age of the earth

How old is the earth?  If you asked most scientists they would tell you it is 4.5 billion years old.  If you asked a Christian who believes the creation account in Genesis is literally true he would tell you it is only a few thousand years old.  Those who believe the earth is old claim that their view is supported by scientific evidence and that young earth creationists reject science.  Our rejection of the belief that the earth is billions of years old isn’t based on science but on history.  The Bible reveals that earth was created by God and later there was a worldwide flood which created the majority of the fossils that we find today.  In a previous post I showed some of the scientific evidence which supports this belief.

Genealogies

The Bible contains many genealogies.  They can be  very boring and when I read through the Bible I often skim over them without studying them in detail but they do shed light on one very controversial issue regarding the interpretation of the Bible.
