Got it. Thanks. And thanks for not taking offense at the somewhat snarky comment!
Oh really, Newbie???
If so, you'll probably have a really good time here. :^)
I personally don't dispute that the Creation was made by "God's Voice" ARTICULATING THE LOGOS, His Truth, the Son of God Alpha to Omega, from the Beginning, to the end of time and beyond....
However, your 10,000-year-old date marking the age of Creation looks a little fishy to me. But I'd be glad to discuss the details with you, anytime.
What you need to know about this Forum is that it is populated (at least largely) by God-fearing Christians, many of whom are well-versed and experienced in the natural sciences, not a few professionally so.
So, jump in have fun!

Thanks so much for writing, John 8_58!
Welcome to FreeRepublic.
Many here don't believe that 6 to 10 thousand year thing including me. I believe that there could have been a "Big Bang" & that God lit the fuse.
My Dad believed that it was about 6,000 years since the creation. That never made sense to me.
The Earth & the universe is obviously older than 10,000 years.
My advice on starting out would be to look for posts on areas of interest to you instead of trying to follow individuals. As you read the posts there will normally by opportunities to join “ping lists” that will be of people also interested in those areas...join a few and get to know the people then you can make the choice for yourself. I have done this and now have a few people that I regularly run into on FR that are of like mind...and several that are not. The interaction of all the ideas do make some of the threads very interesting.
For disclosure...I am a Bible believing Christian, young earth creationist, husband of one wife, home schooling father of seven.
