The Bible is Right!
Took Place 4,000 to 6,000 Years Before Christ
HUMANIST'S CLAIM: The third chapter of Luke contains a genealogy tracing Christs
ancestry back only 76 generations to Adam. According to Genesis chapter 1, Adam
was created along with the rest of the universe during the course of one week.
The Bible thus
views the human race and the universe as having existed for a relatively short
period, probably no more than several thousand years. In fact, for many centuries
the orthodox Christian position to doubt which was to risk damnation
was that the creation took place sometime between four and six thousand years
before Christs birth.
Historians and scientists
give a much longer historical record. They say the universe is between 10 and
20 billion years old, the earths age is approximately 4.6 billion years,
and humans evolved from ape-like ancestors during the last few million years.
got one right!
Yes, sometimes some scientists do make mistakes.
It's good that the humanists are willing to point that out and admit when a mistake
has been made. That's a normal part of science. As we learn more, and the evidence
shows old theories need to be changed, science needs to follow that evidence wherever
it leads. In this case the most up-to-date evidence points to the earth being
no more than about 6,000 to 10,000 years old.
Although they should be using
the genealogies in Genesis 1-11 instead of Jesus' genealogy, they come to the
right conclusion about what the Bible implies... that the earth is thousands not
millions of years old. They did get something wrong, however. Christians don't
risk damnation for believing in deep time, and never have. It's not a salvation
This is a huge topic with a huge amount of evidence supporting a
young earth. Much more than I can discuss here. Here are links for more information:

Old is the Earth?
is about 6,000 years old.
chapter 2 avers that shortly after the birth of Jesus, King Herod ordered the
massacre of all male children two years of age or under in Bethlehem and its vicinity.
In the book of Luke, which contains the only other New Testament story of Jesus
birth, there is no mention of this horribly cruel order. Its also not recorded
in any secular histories from the time not even by writers who carefully
described many far less wicked deeds of Herod. The lack of corroboration means
Matthews account was fabricated.
It's another empty arguement from
