Old earth for me. It doesn't seem like God would create the earth in 144 hours and then deceive us with the appearance of age if He intended for us to learn something about His power and wisdom through scientific study (which I think He intended).

Global flooding seems to be a hot button because each side looks at the Grand Canyon and concludes there was global flooding and others do not. I could be given articles and papers that show both sides, but it's like i have to somehow know "proper" geology to see who is right.This is why i talk about scriptural grounds, because it is "Thee Source" that makes claims and once we know a definitive claim, then we can test it. If there was a global flood around 2000BC then we should have overwhelming evidence, yet there are many(if not more) that say around 2000BC there was no global flood reviewing the same "evidence" that brings us them to that conclusion.
can we revive this thread please?
