FACT: the world is at least 4.6 billion years old. The bible claims to be approximately 6,500.
You know what makes that statement not a fact? The bible doesn't say that. That 6500 year figure came up because the Hasmonean Jews were the ones who wrote the OT.... Given that it was written from their perspective, they promulgated the whole "the earth is only 6500 years old" crappolla. Know your facts before you declare it a FACT.....

if you are a christian then you beleive the bible and all of it's books including the OT tell the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth yes?
and that you have a supernaturaul fondness/love of jews because jesus himself was jewish yes? am i wrong correct me if i am i won't take offense.
but if the above is true then why would you beleivea the jews were wrong on this viewpoint/belief? were they not god's chosen? his favorites? the humans closest to him? if so they would know the exact truth beacause 'god' would tell them correct? why wouldn't they know the exact age of the earth?
