The start of all this, on God’s own words: “For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day”.Using genealogy, we can roughly estimate the age of the earth, as stated by the Bible, to be 6500 years.The Bible tells Christians that God is infallible, and Christians believe the Bible because they believe it was written by an infallible deity. So the start of our logical deduction must be the Bible, so let’s concentrate on that.Let’s take the Christian God’s greatest act, creating the world and all who live on it (indirectly).I think I’ve made a stronger argument, based on Christian beliefs, for the non existence of God than there ever has been for the existence of such a deity.Comments which contain links will be held for moderation.Male and female, that would be 20 million animals Noah saved.
There are around 10 MILLION known species of animal on our planet.
He then, after the waters had receded, would have had to return them to their original locations.
You also have to question to environment on board Noah’s Ark, an environment that could sustain animals that require intense heat and animals that require intense cold, as well as Noah and his family that required a more moderate climate. Just so we’re clear, I’m establishing that that the Bible is inaccurate. There are more examples of course, some which make it clear that the author of the Bible thinks the world is flat, some which make it clear that the author thought the world did not move and then there are more considered examples, such as the value of pi being unknown at the time (surely God would have known it!?! So this is my statement, logically derived from the above.
In fact, depending on how much evidence you consider to be acceptable, and how you define us as a species, you could place humans at between 1.8 million and 130,000 years old.
No one could sensibly claim that humans are 130,000 years old. God decided that the earth needed cleansing, so he instructed Noah to gather up two of ever species to save.
