Christians are divided between Young Earth Creationists and Old Earth Creationists. The first group believes that the days of creation in Genesis 1 are literal days; the second believes that there is scientific evidence that the earth is billions of years old and the creation account must be interpreted to conform to this evidence. In fact the research that leads to the belief that the earth is old fails to take into consideration the possibility of divine intervention in the running of the universe. One of my previous posts deals with this subject:
There is scientific evidence that the earth can’t be as old as is generally believed and at the end of this post I list some sites where you can find this evidence.
Some people claim that young earth creation can’t be true because the earth looks old. The earth does look old and there is a very good reason for that. It is old.
