Really Young Earth

There’s a notion out there that the Earth is only six thousand years old. The people that believe this are called Young Earth Creationists. The logic behind this comes from a detailed and literalist interpretation of the Bible, along with the notion that in the Biblical listings of lineage that no one was left out. Not to mention a rather exacting interpretation of life spans.

Geological science on the other hand has discovered plenty of evidence that the Earth is billions of years old.

I asked God which was right, but since he’s already told me not to believe everything in the Bible it was kind of a rigged question. Still, I thought it might be interesting to see what he might say.

Apparently he felt that since I was asking leading questions, he might as well ask one back. He asked me what I thought about the fossil record. So I played along, I told him that he had obviously planted it, as a test of our faith.

So then he told me that it was worse than I thought. He told me the Earth is actually only a few days old. He not only planted the fossils as mocked up evidence of the Earth’s past, but he planted our memories of having grown up, and of everything.

Oh, and it’s not very well made either. We can expect the universe to pretty much fall apart by next Tuesday.
