    If you go by the word of God the earth is about 10,000 to 6,000 years old.

    Chess is that old, and did the world really exist before chess?

    Dinosaurs? Ancient agriculture? Radiocarbon dating? Ice cores? Ancient tree rings? Any of this making any sense?

    Ok, you sound pretty confident. does this mean you have worked it out yourself or were just told it by some pastor?
    If you have actually worked it out for yourself, then can you give me an approximate date for the flood (noah) and an approximate timeline from him to date. Then explain how the peoples of the world covered the whole world and changed genetically so dramatically as to create different races in a very short space of time such that in the times of ancient egypt some of the major races were well known?

    I have nothing but questions in the face of RB's stupidity. And clearly every question mark must be followed by a capital letter.

    It's not atually in the bible.
    The bible makes no reference to dates or times - or little anyway. Which kind of makes sense if you accept that it was written by many people over an extended period of time and went through many changes. Dates would've got in the way of telling good stories.

    What the 6,000 years or 10,000 years that people are referring to are some calculations made by a guy a few hundred years ago - Paley I think, maybe in the 1700s or 1800s?
    He tallied up all the generations that were listed in some of the biblical stories - from Adam through Noah and Abraham and Moses and so on to Jesus - added 1700 years or so for good measure and got a figure of 6,000 years or something like it.
    Other people have done the same with varying results depending on how long each generation is and which generations you count - remember the bible isn't one book but many, so there are quite a few contradictions.

    Clearly doesn't match the scientific interpretations of geology, radiometric dating, palaeontology and evolution so there's the tension.
