Rolleyes Planet Earth's Age
Well, how about knowing the earth's real age? Will you go to scientific belief or biblical?

I'll go with biblical.


*Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding.
*Be not wise in thine own eyes, Fear the Lord and Depart from evil.
*In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths.

Majority! I believe in the Bible more than scientific belief!

Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts.

RE: Planet Earth's Age
I'm going to disagree. I believe the bible is more about analogies and ideas than hard facts and that the earth is about 4.5 billion years old as science says.

I Agree with GR.
now the votes are split, Lets head to the lightning round Smile

Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.

Scientific. But there must be a middle point between Religion and science. A meeting ground between the the two constructs.

RE: Planet Earth's Age
I have to go with scientific, despite the fact that some guy with what one has to assume is the equivilant of a third grade education at one point wrote in a book that it was only six thousand years old. With the antarctic ice record (600,000 years), Sedementary record (2+ billion years), the measurements of radioactive decay in deep-earth minerals (3.9 billion years, prior to that the earth's surface was molten due to a collision with the moon), the red-light shifting we use to measure the distance of stellar objects (13.7 billion years), NASA experiments regarding ecretion disks and how planets form, the evolutionary fossil-record, and of course our own written and archeological histories as a species.

The evidence for the age of our planet is overwhelming, where as that which supports the six thousand year assertion of creationists is non-existant. There's nothing out there at all that indicates that the earth is younger than a several billion years old.

RE: Planet Earth's Age
I didn't respond to the poll, because, strictly speaking, I do not "believe" in science. I generally accept the knowledge that science provides regarding the age of the earth, but that's not the same as "believing in science."

Science is not a religion.
