Hi Eilidh,

Welcome to EvC!

Why creationism as opposed to evolution?

What stripe of creationism? Young Earth or Old Earth?

Re: Welcome Welcome Welcome
Eilidh,

I truly believe everybody must make up their own mind and be allowed to believe what they wish. Whether it be Evolution, Intelligent design or even fairies if they want.

Of course they should, but we should equally allowed to call the ones who go against the evidence as being what they are; deluded. This isn't a post-modernist exercise where all scenarios have equal veracity! ;)

Re: Welcome Welcome Welcome
Eilidh,

I believe in a young earth because it makes more sense to me than any of the explanations science has came up with.

YEC is utterly unsubstantiated. There isn't a single piece of evidence that supports the biblical 6,000 year timeline. Not one.

Evidence that scuppers the YEC timeline is legion.

Old earth dates ~ 4.5 bya are corroborated by more than one line of evidence.

How on earth can you say YEC "makes more sense" when this is the case?
