Actually, I agree with you! The global warming eco-freak gaia worshippers believe everything revolves around what man does. Incidentally I don’t think the earth is 15 billion years old. 7-10,000 years will do the trick for me. Weather pattern have always fluctuated violently in our short span of existence.
There is some good observational evidence that Earth is appx 4.5 billion years old, where 15b is more like the age of the universe. 7-10,000 years would not provide enough time for heavier atoms to have formed, where rather 2 or 3 generations of stars seems the only consistent nuclear furnace.
Science needs not be at odds with God.
