    How can Christians not see that the earth is more than 6500 yrs old?

    They just miss the mark by billions of yrs.

    This is blindness at its greatest.

    Or is it just plain old dishonesty.

    Some Christians. Don't tar them all with the same brush.

    Besides - your ideas are just as whacky as the YECs.

    No human being observed the creation of the earth. God's purpose in Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning [which was not the beginning] God created the heavens and the earth." wasn't to provide details but to reveal His power in creation.

    Would you describe yourself as a 'Young Earth Creationist'?

    'Young Earth Creationist' as referenced in Dasa's OP? No.

    Many speculate but no one knows the precise age of the earth.

    Without attempting to be precise, do you believe the earth is billions of years old?

    Self existent God created the angelic host Job 38:4-7 which observed creation of the universe [its domain] Gen.1:1; then the human race for which planet earth was restored Gen.1:2. How old is the earth? Millions, billions, trillions? We're not told.

    Do scientific discoveries related to this topic persuade you as to how many billions of years it might be?

    Does this shed light on the age of the earth in your view?

    I believe I am human, and that I did observe the creation of the earth. Observation does not require a direct line of sight with photons going from the object/event in question to the human eye. Observation merely requires a causal chain of events such that the original event can be known by the human brain based on information it receives.
    I can be more sure about the age of the earth than you can about the location of the Ace of spades during a card trick right before your eyes.

    What unit of measure [other than years] would be applicable to the age of planet earth which began before human history?
