The Bible book of Genesis plainly states that God created humans as well as various animal and plant life. Theistic evolution suggests that Genesis is not ... Do people try to persuade you that creation is a legend and evolution is a fact? Should you believe them? Consider reasons to question evolution. Was life created or did it evolve? Make an informed judgment after examining evidence from the Bible and from recent scientific studies.
This question has stoked controversy among conservative Christians in recent times, but it has proved to be of little interest to theistic evolutionists (those who accept evolution as God’s mechanism in creation) and those rejecting Genesis as God’s inerrant Word. The debate has been primarily between young-and old-earth creationists.
The scientific evidence for creation is found in three different areas. First, there is the scientific evidence for the creation of the physical universe. Second, there is the scientific evidence for the creation of first life. Third, there is the scientific evidence for the creation of all basic life forms, including human beings.
There are two major views with regard to the time involved in Creation: the old earth view and the young-earth view. The latter believes the universe is no more than approximately 15,000 years old, while the former holds that it is probably about 15,000,000,000 years old.
There seems to be no way to actually prove how old the universe really is, either from science or from the Bible, for there are known and possible gaps in the biblical genealogies (see below). In addition, there are unprovable presuppositions in most, if not all, the scientific arguments for an old earth (see below); that is, an earth of millions or billions of years is biblically possible but not absolutely provable.

Below we have to come at this from a time perspective of how long is the creation day and common sense observations about the creation account. Open your mind and come at this information with no preconceived views, take it in objectively, and at the end of the article you will have your answer and much more.

The Genesis creation account begins with the simple, powerful statement: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1) More and more Bible scholars are agreeing that this statement describes an action, which is separate from the creative days described in Genesis 1:3 onward.
Genesis 1:1 Updated American Standard Version (UASV) 1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Over the past 200 years, the scientific community and the Bible scholars of Christianity have engaged in battle. Scientists believe they have proved the Genesis account as being nothing more than a myth or legend, being no... Continue Reading →
There are over a dozen different interpretations concerning the creative days of Genesis. Herein we will consider the main four in an effort to make our point. First, there is the young-earth view that asserts that all physical creation was produced in just six literal 24-hour days sometime between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago. Second,... Continue Reading →
