Today's show will focus again on that pesky question and that subject of how old the earth is that came up one week ago.  I wanted to take the time today to address that more thoroughly as best as I can in scripture.  There are certainly reasons for Christians to believe, assume, and defend the idea that the earth is 6,000 years old.  But those reasons are not really biblical.  That's particularly the case when one digs deeper into the Word in both the Hebrew and just other places in the Bible itself.  So what I will attempt to do today is to take a walk through much of Genesis Chapter 1, and utlize other verses to hopefully show that God never said and that the bible doesn't claim this earth was created about 6,000 years ago.  I'll try to focus a little bit on God's creation itself in the first chapter of Genesis and cover as much as I can.  Bring your bibles or at least your ears and hopefully learn something today.
