    Replacing the ignorant defiance of "Were you there?" with the inquisitiveness of "How do you know that?" would be rather like taking an axe to the root of just about every assertion that so many religionists make.

    Does she apply the same intellectual rigour to religious instruction do you suppose?

    There will always be some kind of proof people will try and smear on you regarding the "how do you know" question but I like the "were you there".

    There is no real evidence to really say how old the earth or moon is. Some believe 6000 years ago and some 4.6 billion years ago. None of us was there on either periods so I guess you have to choose one or the other. I believe in the 6000 years as it falls withing Bible scripture. And even there there are Christians whom do not believe the same. Who really cares how old the earth is? Will it make any difference in our way of living until dead, replaced or raptured?

    by this argument, we shouldn't have invented anything or gather any knowledge because all life is really is waiting to die and get in the new one.




    life is a challenge. we must constantly try and surpass ourselves. so when you do die, you have something to show god. think of life as a loan god gives you and the interest is what you do in life. this parable will explain:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parable_of_the_talents_or_minas

    How have you come to this conclusions?!

    Some believe 6000 years ago and some 4.6 billion years ago.

    The information gathered through the scientific method tells us 4.6 billion years, only the religiously deluded believe 6000 years.

    I believe in the 6000 years as it falls withing Bible scripture.

    Proving my assertion above.

    Who really cares how old the earth is?

    I do, and countless people worldwide.

    Will it make any difference in our way of living until dead, replaced or raptured?

    Personally, i like to understand the universe and my place within it.

    LMAO. Good luck there buddy. This is a back-patting exercise, not open to debate.

    edit. It was probably a nine-year-old boy, not a girl, but then nobody saw that either.

    ...and the mead of the flatter and the shame don't matter, were you there?

    Nine-year-old girls can be quite playful in throwing around their brainpower once they discover they have some. Being bold is not only for boys.

    I would have asked the question, "how do you know?"

    Except you really do not understand the universe or your place in it, what you
    do is come up with some ideas on what you think is true. You look at what is
    around you and come up with conclusions, they maybe true or not, it is all the
    same if your conclusions cannot proven right or wrong either way.

    A 9-year-old boy named Emma? Maybe the OP was trying to save the lad's reputation by referring to him as a girl.
