6 Day Creation
One of the great Biblical truths I affirm is that the universe and all things in it were created in six 24-hour periods (days) about 6,000 years ago (around 4,000 B.C.). We know the approximate date of creation by following the detailed genealogies given to us in the Bible, and we know how long creation took from the accounts in Genesis 1 & 2 as well as Exodus 20:11.
It's unsurprising that non-believers reject this in order to cling to their blind faith in atheism and billions of years. This is in spite of the mountains of scientific data that reject even the possibility of abiogenesis, macro-evolution, and billions of years. However, is it rational for Christians to accept the openly secular naturalistic idea of deep time and molecules-to-man evolution? Of course not, and I'll tell you why.
First of all, as I mentioned above, the Bible makes it clear that all things were created in 6 literal days. Just like Jonah was in the belly of the whale for 3 days, and Jesus Christ was in the tomb 3 days, the universe was created in 6 days. It's irrational and inconsistent for Christians to accept some time periods in the Bible but reject others.
Jesus makes it clear that Adam & Eve were "in the beginning" and didn't arise after millions of years when He said in Mark 10:6, "But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female" (which also debunks the new absurd idea that there are "multiple genders").
Also, evolution requires death upon death for ages but before Adam & Eve (yes, real literal people) the Bible makes it clear that there was no death. Romans 5:12 says, "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned."
Finally, not only is there no room anywhere in the Bible for evolution and billions of years, there is no scientific data to support it either. Absolutely none.
I realize this is a very short post on a very lengthly topic, but I'll tackle individual claims and arguments in future posts. For now, please check out these great resources on the issue:
