Creation is one of the things many people disagree on. Some say the world was created from a big bang other by God and some really don’t care. I grew up with the questions, how did the world begin? Who made the world? How was the world made? How long did it take? Many scientists answers to these question are vague. For example, how long did it take for the world to be made. Most scientist say that it took millions of years to be created. Which me personally and with christianity in mind think that is ridiculous.
At the very beginning of the bible (besides the table of contents) it says:
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” -Genesis 1:1 (NIV)
A thing I have noticed over the years is that us christians, we have background, we have a reason we think this, we have something from the past that tells us this, something to look on. In a word, we have evidence. The bible is our evidence. The bible has been around for ages, not millions or trillions of years because the world isn’t that old, but it’s been around for quite a while. Moses was the first writer inspired by God to write the bible. He wrote the first five books of the bible: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. The things that happened in Exodus could only have happened around 500-800 years after the beginning. Which would mean that our world could only be a few thousand years old, no older!
In the beginning of the bible is says that it took God seven days to create the world, again, it is specific. It doesn’t say a million or so trillion years. It gets to the point. God created this on this day, this on this day, and so on.
If someone commented that I was wrong, and that scientists have proven or can prove that the world was created with a big bang or something like that I would 1. probably delete the comment, because I don’t need such rubbish. *cough* or I would reply that scientists have no evidence that the world is a millions years old, they don’t have a book dating back to a few thousand years ago, that goes into specifics. So much that is in the bible makes such perfect sense to everyday life things. And if it were written three thousand years ago how could they people back then know that now things would be like that?
