Since this thread didn't go through a vetting process over at Proposed New Topics I will clearly define the limits of this topic.
This thread is for discussing how well the eras described in Message 1 correspond to the creation account in Genesis. Arguments should be based upon facts and evidence.
This thread is not for Bible bashing, nor is it for accusing others of being Bible bashers. This thread is not for personalizing the debate. Please stick to the facts and focus narrowly on the topic. Anyone having problems in this thread should post to the Report Discussion Problems Here 4.0 thread.
