Question on Evolution

I got an email from the Answers in Genesis group yesterday and it was talking about the age of the earth. Basically to get that, you take the ages of the people mentioned in Genesis and then add that to what we know of human history and the first 6 days of course and you get a little over 6,000 years.

I don’t support the young earth stance, but I know there are several do. To them, it is unbiblical to not support that stance. For me, the Bible doesn’t always hold to the traditional linear thinking that society has. So, I agree to disagree with them.

My question came to the thought that the current version of man is between 50,000 and 100,000 years old, according to evolutionist. Why have we not advanced more that where we are at? It just doesn’t seem like we have progressed very far if we have really had 50,000 years to do it.

  1. We would have progressed far beyond our present state if mankind were really that old. Man is only a little older than the written records that we have. If a few more languages that haven’t yet been deciphered could be understood, that would probably take us back very near the beginning.

    • That is what I tend to think. I don’t discount that evolution is true, but only to a point. I know they would have us believe that mankind is a lot older, but logically that doesn’t hold up to how limited our development really is. Of course religion will probably be blamed for that.

      Thanks for the comment.
