I'm not sure why there is a big debate between the ID and evolution proponents. It seems obvious to me that God created the entire thing in 6 days,
maybe over 6000 years ago (no word on how long Adam was in the Garden of Eden, since his aging didn't start until he left the place).
The way I see it, if God said it, I believe it.
Next, consider this point: could God make the entire thing appear to be aged? Could a zookeeper make a zoo cage that looks to the animals as if they
are in their habitat? Well, if they can, then I wouldn't sell God short here. It would be nothing for Him to make this place appear any way He
wants it to. Remember the little blue dot Earth on the Sagan photo from Voyager? en.wikipedia.org...
are virtually nothing in the vast emptiness of space. If God can make trillions of stars and stretch out a creation to limitless space, this blue dot
is no big deal.
Curiously, I have a hidden scripture for you to back up this concept of the world being made aged. Well, first of all, He made Adam and Eve aged, and
the fruit they ate came from trees that were made aged, etc. The entire planet was made aged. Let's take a look at what Jesus Christ said. The
Bible says the first miracle that Jesus did in the New Testament was the turning of water into wine. The Bible says the first miracle that Jesus did
in the Old Testament was when He created the universe (John 1). Ok, so now you have two creations. One was the universe, the other was the wine.
Let's look at the similarities:
1. The wine was created instantly. It was created aged, according to those who tasted it at the scene.
2. The wine was created in six waterpots of water. The universe was created in six days.
3. The town that the wine creation took place: Cana, which is translated, to create, or to build.
Well, you can draw your own conclusion. Mine: With the wine, He literally gave us a little "taste" of how He made everything.
Then you have those rainbows in the granite that mean that all the granite on earth had to cool in 90 seconds. Polonium. See www.halos.com. The
scientist that drew the creation conclusion is the world expert on these halos. www.halos.com...
It appears his biggest opponents
are those still persisting in believing in an old universe, easily considered antiquated uniformitarians.
If you can explain that scientifically, I'd like to know your answer. I think mine takes far far less faith to believe than the scientific
Really, when you think about it, science has its hands full trying to explain the ooparts of modern human evidence that predate the dinosaurs.
