No I am not mistaken.
The Bible tells us that the world was created in six days, and fixes the epoch of this creation at about 4000 years before the Christian era.
The Bible says NO such thing and you could quote where it does. Many Christians say such silly things, but the Bible doesnt. This 6000-year idea is based on interpretations of biblical-family trees and false assumptions of how long humans lived in those days.
...incapable of intellectual honesty enough to concede technological and scientific progress because they don't understand it themselves, and most often because they disagree since it upsets their own biases.
If we pretend some magical deity swooshed in and created mankind "in his image", the only logical conclusion with available data would be that this god looks Sub-Saharan Black African because it's the only pur blooded human race, and this Abrahamic deity isn't known for much tolerance when it comes to man sleeping with the beasts in the field (Neanderthal, and/or other hominids).

I believe you are mistaking biblical years (6000) as actual time. I was under the impression that they are speaking in terms of 1 year being hundreds of human years. We already know humans have been living on earth FAR longer than 6000 human years.
No I am not mistaken.
The Bible tells us that the world was created in six days, and fixes the epoch of this creation at about 4000 years before the Christian era. Previously to that period the earth did not exist. At that period it was produced out of nothing. Such is the formal declaration of the sacred text, yet science, positive, inexorable steps in with proof to the contrary.
The history of the formation of the globe is written in indestructible characters in the worlds of fossils, proving beyond the possibility of denial that the six days of the creation are successive periods, each of which may have been of millions of ages

Sorry but you are mistaken. Do a little research of the hebrew word "day". You will see that it has three distinct meanings. One of those being 24 hours and another being a vast amount of time. The six days of creation could not have been 24 hours because the sun and moon were not created until day 4.
