    I was thinking about how the universe could be both 13.8 Billion years old, and (as some scholars have indicated) the Earth was created 6000 years ago in a single day. It occurs to me that both might be true if you think of the nature of God. God could have made the the Earth 6000 years ago in a single day, but when he created the Earth, God made the universe 13.8 billion years old at the moment he created everything.

      I think, after much head scratching and research, that the YEC position is ‘weak’, but at worse it undermines good apologetics and Christianity (a BIG problem imo). Essentially it takes a non-falsfiable view, and contorts all science to match YEC (gee, sounds like evolutionism!).
      I think interpreting Genesis in its correct context is the best place to start.
      Here is a great little discussion…attached
