scripture and presents more questions than answers.
The problem I have with this reply though, is that we can have both
situations: man was created 6000 ago and the earth was created many
billions of years ago. The reconciliation lies in the time span between
Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 and the fact that face of the earth was renewed.
Considering that this is a Revelation list I will leave it at this. If
you would like, I can reply off forum and fill in the gap for you.
