By Jack Kelley The other day I received an interesting response to my answer stating that the Bible supports an approximate 6000 year history for the human race. This person didnâ€™t dispute the Bible, only our interpretation of it, in disagreeing with my answer.
The essence of his response was that since science has found what it considers to be persuasive evidence that contradicts the literal view of the creation account, then our traditional interpretation of the language in Genesis 1 has to be flawed.
The writer is a scientist and a Christian. He presented a calm and reasoned response claiming that every relevant field of science is in agreement that â€œenormous amounts of very convincing evidence exists for an old â€“ very old â€“ earth and even for evolution, including humans.â€
