I really get amused at the conclusions that some scientists make. Yesterday I saw an article claiming that a “million year old tooth” had been found. I had to wonder how in the world they know it is millions of years old.
Indiana Jones versus the Cave Men?
I used to believe that it took millions of years to create a fossil–UNTIL I came across this picture of a fossilized hat. Yes, that’s right–this is a fossilized hat. Given the right conditions, a fossil can form in a few decades. The flood recorded in Genesis would have created ideal conditions for the creation of fossils.
Now I believe that the earth is much younger than scientists claim. I also believe that the six days of creation in Genesis were literal days. I just don’t see any compelling reason to interpret the Bible any other way. Will I ever change my mind again? Maybe, but you’ll have to show me more evidence than a fossilized tooth.
It doesn’t bother me if any of you disagree with me on this. There are many Christians who think the creation story in Genesis is a type of metaphor. I used to think this way, and back then I loved Jesus just as much as I do now. I just want to challenge those of you who have put too much faith in flawed “scientific” reasoning.
