Creationism and "Adultism"

What purpose does it serve to believe the world is 6,000 years old?

  • 1) If you believe that reflects the correct Biblical chronology of OT + 2020 years, it serves believing God’s word. I prefer believing the world is 7219 years. But that serves the same purpose.
  • 2) Since Christ came “in the fulness of time” we can’t expect AD to go on to 4000 if 6000 is correct, nor to 5200 if 7219 is correct. It helps to remind of the end of times.
  • 3) Not to be fooled by false science claiming that 40 000 BP or 65 million BP are real dates.

HGL, No proof that your JC ever lived. Only stories written 100 to 300 years later. Try reality. Try science. pi does not equal 3. Earth not flat. re read your book. Think.

  • 1) Gospel of St. Matthew was written by that disciple in the decade or decades following events.
  • 2) Nothing in the Bible says pi equals 3. One circle certainly has pi as relation between circumference and diameter. But two concentric circles, which would be the case with some circular objects, can have diameter of larger circle reflected in triple precisely in the circumference of the smaller one. Reread the passage. What circle would the one measure refer to, what would the other refer to.
  • 3) Nothing in the Bible says earth is flat. And that includes the dream of Nebuchadnezzar, because it was a dream and is not supposed to physically reflect reality and it includes four corners, since the continents do have four (main) corners against the Pacific.
  • 4) The tone is actually deplorable as to manners. If my granny used the words “read, learn, think” when giving me a book on human origins (evolutionist), she was my granny. You are not. I am 52, and do not enjoy being talked to as if 1/5 or 1/10 that age.

“ I am 52, and do not enjoy being talked to as if 1/5 or 1/10 that age.”

Then you should stop thinking like a child of that age.

I got an answer from Brian Barker … which I cannot answer, meaning he has shown some childish reluctance to face rational contradiction.
