Viewpoint: No, later scientists such as Nicolaus Copernicus and Galileo correctly realized that Earth moves around the Sun, not vice versa, and thus cannot be the center of the universe. It is easy in our human nature to believe that we are the center of the universe. A newborn infant must learn through experimentation and sensation that he is a part of the world, not the entirety. 1 Then Zophar the Naamathite replied. 2 "My troubled thoughts prompt me to answer because I am greatly disturbed. 3 I hear a rebuke that dishonors me, and my understanding inspires me to reply. 4 "Surely you know how it has been from of old, ever since man was placed on the earth, 5 that the mirth of the wicked is brief, the joy of the godless lasts but a moment.
There are two things I was taught as a new young-earth creationist: Firstly, that there is a vast conspiracy within the global scientific community against young-earth creation science. It is not the lack of evidence that leaves young-earth creationism outside the walls of the scientific academy, but the fallen nature of the evolutionary. Young Earth Creation Science Argument Index In addition, the book compares the perfect paradise paradigm to the perfect purpose paradigm proposed by old earth creationists. Since the book sticks to the scriptures almost exclusively, it cannot be claimed that old earth creationists ignore the scriptures in preference to "fallible science.
Dear Reader, ou are cordially invited to investigate a wide variety of arguments for a young earth, a number of arguments against the radiocarbon dating method, several arguments disputing the authority of the geologic column, and some points of general interest.

Question: "Old earth vs. young earth—what are the core issues in the debate?" Answer: Both old earth creationism and young earth creationism seek to solve the apparent conflict between science and the Bible in regard to the age of the earth.
What is the apparent conflict. If the book of Genesis is interpreted strictly literally, it seems to indicate that the earth and the universe are around. Old earth and young earth advocates ought to unite under the banner which is the glorious Gospel of Christ.
Salvation is not contingent on what one believes about the age of the earth. This article has not, of course, dealt with the larger issues of science, nor has it offered a scientific critique of the young-earth perspective. OLD EARTH weighs age-old arguments between science and religion in a tense thriller that spans time and questions recorded history.
"A high energy combination of history and intrigue, and last but not least, a great book to bring along the next time /5(4). A pathetic case for an old earth. A review of A Biblical Case for an Old Earth by David Snoke Baker Books, Grand Rapids, MI, by Lita Cosner.
Books claiming that science disproves ‘young-earth’ creationism are very common, and books that claim the Bible itself does not mandate a literal interpretation of the first few chapters of Genesis are not in short supply either.
At the Maragha and Samarkand observatories, the Earth's rotation wa s discussed by Tusi (b. ) and Qushji (b. ); the arguments and evidence they used resemble those used by Copernicus to support the Earth's motion. Regardless of the arguments for or against an Old Earth, I will always choose to be a fool who has faith in God's word over man's wisdom.
He knows more about creation than any man, because He did it. We can work hard to figure out when the Earth and the Universe began, but our methods are ultimately as flawed as we are.
Some notable elements of that chronology include Earth’s formation billion years ago, the first confirmed appearance of life around billion years ago, the Cambrian explosion at million years ago, and the origin of humanity somewhere between 50 and thousand years ago.
OBJECTIONS TO OLD EARTH BELIEF. Objections to old earth belief can be boiled down to two key issues. First, the meaning of the Hebrew word used for day, YÔM. Young-earth proponents will argue that it can only mean a hour day in the creation account. [Lee Irons & Meredith Kline, The Genesis Debate, pgs.()] Although many who hold a Literary Framework View believe scientists have presented compelling evidence of an old age for the universe/earth, the Framework View does not require the earth to be old; therefore, one is free to believe in a young earth, if so.
Unfortunately, these ideas caved to Aristotle’s theories, where he provides three common sense arguments against a non-Earth centered model. These arguments are: 1) If the Earth was spinning. You could make two arguments for old earth creationism: the first is that species are all very old as well, and the second is that species are new, but the earth is old.
The best argument for the old earth old species creationism is evolution. The best argument for the old earth. The first half of The Genesis Flood () clearly demonstrated that, and old-earth Christian critics have never even attempted to refute the biblical arguments in that epic book.
More recently, Dr. Andrew Snelling has presented a thorough biblical argument in the first pages of his 2-volume, 1,page defense of Noah’s Flood and. In the debate, Ken Ham articulated his belief in the young earth view, and attacked Christians who hold to the old earth as inconsistent.
He argued against the evidence of radiometric and astrological dating – where scientists study the decay of minerals and the distance of the stars to claim that the universe is at least millions of years old.

One of the most commonly used arguments for an old earth involves the technique of radiometric dating. We are told that rocks “have been dated” to be billions of years old. Radiometric dating is supposed to tell how much time has elapsed since a rock was formed (from magma).
Arguments Young-Earth Creationism Actually, the only real "evidence" for a billions of years old earth model is the fact that the philosophy of evolution requires it. That's why radiometric dating "discovers" the ages they do: they triangulate based on a few.
Evolution and the old earth theory is good on paper but the evidence in the earth itself (geological findings) and logical thinking do not support it. It is the alternative answer for the origins of the universe for many people who refuse to believe in God.
The young earth theory has many less obstacles and more proofs to support it. Since Copernicus' hypothesis was believed to contradict the Old Testament account of the Sun's movement around the Earth (Joshua ), this was apparently written to soften any religious backlash against the book.
However, there is no evidence that Copernicus himself considered the heliocentric model as merely mathematically convenient, separate from reality.
Young Earth Creation Science Argument Index The purpose of this index is to list all the claims of young earth creationists, and provide rebuttals to those claims.
Although the idea for this index came from the listing of creationist claims, this index differs in that it answers the arguments from an old earth creationist.

Answer: Old earth creationism (OEC) is an umbrella term used to describe biblical creationists who deny that the universe was created within the last 6, to 10, years over the course of six consecutive hour days. Rather, old earth creationists believe that God created the universe and its inhabitants (including a literal Adam and Eve.
