    Well, along with Genesis 1-2 which I've already mentioned, we can pop over to Matthew 1, or even better, Luke 3, and take a look at the genealogy there, which traces the human ancestry of Jesus all the way back to Adam. And Jesus to Adam = a young earth (if we take the plain and simple meaning of St. Luke's text anyway).
    No one has ever come up with the same age twice in a row. So it fails any practical test.
    Not is the topic covered in different ways by seperate authors.
    Nor is a young earth even hinted at as a topic in scripture.

        I just discovered what it says in my research.

        My goal is to show that scripture is hostile to the idea that the earth is young.
        After 10 years of following ICR as a fan I concluded they were wrong and that the
        "Plain and simple" reading of scripture claims the earth to be ancient.
        "Everlasting" is difficult to shoehorn into a "young earth" for any literalist.
        And YE Creationists are proud to call themselves literalists. I was.

        Anyone wishing to use the "Plain and simple" reading of scripture must
        agree that the earth is not young. It took me a decade to see it so I don't
        expect any converts any time soon.

        That's not what Scripture says, it the hills are everlasting, not from everlasting. You push millions of years to mean ancient when it doesn't take millions of years for something to become ancient.


          Six times in Genesis the term "and there was morning and evening" is used to tell how much time there was in one day in biblical times and it was twenty four hours back then just like it is today. Evolutionists claim that the earth is 4.5 billion years old which means "morning and evening" in the bible equals 750,000,000 years for each of the six morning and evenings. So using this same "day" reasoning Jonah spent 22,500,000,000 years in the belly of a great fish! That means Jesus is still in the tomb because He said "Just as Jonah was in the belly of a great fish three days so shall the Son of God be in the belly of the earth three days". Okay, lets subtract 2000 years from 22,500,000,000 and at that time Jesus will be resurrected from the grave. Utterly ridiculous. As far as "ancient" Webster says that the word means "many years." Since God created the earth approximately 8,000 years ago and the Psalms were written approximately in the year 1440 BC that would make the mountains and hills about 6500 years old in the Psalmists day. I'd say something that is 6500 years would be ancient.
