You have been pinged because of your interest regarding news, debate and editorials pertaining to the Creation vs. Evolution debate - from the young-earth creationist perspective.

To me this is the only important part:

these Christian voters agreed that, “In the beginning God created...”

As long as there is agreement here, I think this is good news. Whether the earth is thousands or billions of years old has no bearing on my relationship with Christ.

As I see it:

I'm undecided on the age of the earth myself and don't believe there is any scientific measure that can provide an accurate age.

I think it's difficult to use the Bible to determine the age of the earth and as somebody else posted, we don't know how much time passed before the Fall; plus can we know for sure the genealogies listed are father/son? Having said that and from my own studies of the entire Bible, it seems to me God wants us to believe a literal account of creation.

Having followed the issue for years and read many books on the subject, I see no evidence for phyletic or gradual evolution. Sure there are many claims but it's the physical evidence that is lacking. Then there's the science of evolution and the politics of evolution and unfortunately, despite the many claims of those on the side of evolution, the politics of evolution trumps the science of evolution.

If the earth is old:

If the earth is young (not quite sure how young): That's my perspective after many years of study and research.
