Hey everyone! Just a thought on the 6000 year old earth. This isn't about creationism, deism, or arguing whether or not a creator exists, but rather
about this specific topic alone. I realize this point has been debated over and over, but I do have something I'd like to say on the matter.
I was always taught, since I was a kid, that God's day and years are different than ours. He lives.. on, near, in.. Whatever a star/planet/place that
one rotation, as in, a day, takes a thousand of our Earth years.
This would make the "6000 year old earth " theory close to..2190000000 years old.
That's 2.1 billion - Now, some say the 6000 number may be off, some say the 1000 number be off... Regardless, doesn't this make more sense? The
earth is.. Billions of years old, even according to the bible...Over 2 billion years actually correlates with our own studies of how old life on earth
is ( basic life, but still, the start of life. )
Why are we so high and mighty about ourselves that we think God needs to measure time and space based on our calculations? He probably doesn't care
to use "light year" or deem a "year in time" as 365 rotations of the planet earth - Why the hell would he? As I was also taught, since a kid, that
he is master of limitless earths, beings, etc... Why are we deeming ourselves so important that any information from God is bound to be in our
language, measurements, etc?
Also why are we so determined our dating method is foolproof? Like we can pinpoint some 10-12 digit number to any degree of accuracy? I'm definitely
not saying the earth is 6000 human years old, I am saying 6000 years - Adjusted to 2.1 billion human years, is not in any way a false representation
of when things on this earth started happening, especially if the two are simply estimates, due to the unreliable nature of The Bible and it's
thousands of translations, changes, etc.. and can be assumed to have a margin of error.
Anyways, food for thought! Thanks for reading!
( For the record, I don't really believe in the 6000 year earth myself, in any way. Simply debating the topic for the heck of it. )
