Hello everyone out there in Cyberville. I hope your day is starting off well. Mine, with a cup of coffee and a bible in my lap (now a laptop though). My first bible blog pointed out that God had already formed the earth (which is made of dust) before the first day, leaving us to wonder just how old the earth could really be. Please go find your bible, dust it off (pun intended), and read the verses, or you can look them up on the internet. God created all kinds of good stuff the first few days, then He created man. In verse 1:26, “…God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness…'” Anyone ever wonder who this “Our” is? Does God have a wife? Okay, all joking aside, in my humble opinion, this is where we are first introduced to the Holy Trinity: Father, Son, Holy Spirit. Who else could “Our” be? Try explaining the Holy Trinity to your kids. It’s a whopper! Anyway, Jesus was up there right along with God from the very beginning, as was the Holy Spirit. Moving on to Gen. 2:7, “…God formed man of dust from the ground…” If God used really old dirt (remember, the earth had already been formed BEFORE the first day), then wouldn’t that make the ingredients of man really old too? So though man was newly created, the dirt used to create him could be carbon dated as being much older. Couldn’t it? Didn’t someone carbon date the shell of a snail, and it was extremely old? To me, this is the only explanation my brain could come up with, but it does seem to be a fairly logical conclusion to the Christian quandary of the age of the earth. DISCLAIMER: I am not an expert, but I can read, and I have a brain. 🙂 Thanks for reading my blog. Maybe someone out there has more to offer to this subject. Have a great day!
