I find the assertion that we can find "facts" on the internet a little baseless considering every parcel of information is written from a biased
point of view (that's our human nature at work). Not only that, but believing in scientific research is not unlike faith in the Bible. You pray that
what you're reading is actually factual and not an exaggeration/falsification therein. We are humans, we are innately fallible and prone to believing
what we want to believe.
The problem with the Bible is it was translated by Humans who meditate on their own understanding to come to a proper interpretation. Seeing as the
Bible is purported to be the divine word of God; no man has any right to interpret for said God without proof of their own divinity given to them by
said God. I believe in the word as it was written originally, not because I can prove its authenticity, but because the word itself speaks to my
spirit. I'm not divine, nor am I righteous, but I do have faith. I do not, however, have any faith in mans preservation of the integrity of that word
from whence it was written.
The problem with science is everything is a theory until proven factual, however as time persists and the collective mind expands, we discover our
previous assertions were not entirely factual. Science is in the business of disproving itself; this is in fact a very good thing, but it also means
you have to take all of that information with a grain of salt.
I've seen many dissertations on carbon dating, stating accurate and inaccurate claims. I didn't do the research myself so who's to say who's
right? Personally I believe the earth to be older then 6000 years, not because of scientific proof, but because in my own mind, I reason out biblical
knowledge and what we know of the fossils. Do I believe it's billions of years old? Probably not... Millions?... That sounds about right to me based
on my own inductive reasoning.
As far as children being brought up "correctly"; this is such a subjective debate, because on one hand, you have the parents thinking they're doing
"what's right" by the child and on the other hand you have those of us who know better... By know better, I simply mean more experienced (not to be
confused with "smarter"). Yes, it's true some of us grow into our awareness and decide to ask the pivotal questions, but that's not the majority.
To be perfectly honest, we are not responsible for others decisions. The wickedness of mankind is rooted deep in his flesh and there will be no peace
as long as that curse exists. It is futile to debate or try to control the inclinations of Humans; we can only watch and govern ourselves as we see
fit. For those who ask questions, we have answers... I believe that's the best we can do. The rest is rooting ourselves in our own beliefs, praying
and prostrating ourselves before whom was, is, and will be forever.
