Do you believe the Earth is young, i.e. 6 or 7 thousand years? I would like to hear your reasons.


I would like to write a hub about the young Earth concept. I already understand quite a bit, but want to get more input from those who hold this view. My hub will not be critical of the young Earth view. It will be solely descriptive of that viewpoint. I've done this on some other topics which I don't necessarily believe and it works well. I feel that when there is a debate, people should understand the opposing side well. I will not be debating you here when you share, but I can't guarantee others won't. Try to keep your answers succinct. You don't have to convince me, just explain.

    Don't really see anything on google about the speed of light slowing down...

    And besides, if it is slower than originally thought, wouldn't that make the age even older?

    Thanks for the explanation. Im hoping that those who believe in a young earth will come and explain why they believe this. I'm simply looking for that information.

    Thanks , Rod. Actually that is exactly what I asked. I'm looking for those who believe in a young earth to explain why they believe this. The only people I know who would believe it are creationists.

    Very interesting thoughts, Michele. Thanks for sharing them. It's interesting that no one has shown up yet who actually believes in a young earth. I know they are here on HP. I was hoping to get their input for my hub. Thanks for sharing here.
