"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;"

That argument falls apart quickly since Adam's age at death is given. Unless you don't think the time before the fall counts toward that age.

But hey, don't worry about what the Bible says, make it fit what man says. Man is the ultimate authority, after all.

Indeed. I've made the same statement to others.

That was the argument I heard in return...it's an argument I don't think has much merit but it's a possibility.
