LOL. How about the earth being 6,000 years old and being created in 6 days?
Yes, how about that un-biblical 6,000 years and 6 literal days teaching ! That is religious-myth teaching.
Thank you for your reply because an inquiring mind wants to know.
I'll start with Genesis 2:4 where all of the 6 creative days are summed up by the single word ' day '.
So, just as we might speak of 'grandfather's day' and know that is Not a 24-hour day but a period of time.
There is nothing in Genesis to indicate that each of the creative days were even of the same or of differing lengths of time.
Even God's 7th Rest Day was still on going in the 1st century as per Hebrews 4:4-11.
So, there is biblically nothing out of harmony with CMBR (Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation) in dating Earth.
I think science agrees that the universe had a beginning just as Genesis 1:1 says there was a beginning.
Where did the power come from to start the universe ________
The Bible gives God's Strength and Power as the source at Isaiah 40:26. - Psalms 104:30
In other words, God supplied the abundantly needed dynamic energy to start the visible material creation.
