Left's Newest Inquisition: Deny Your God or Be Declared Unfit

Mankind has invariably looked upward throughout history in the belief that God lives "up there". However, "up" is a very different place depending on where on earth you happen to be. Point is... common belief is that God lives somewhere other than earth. A "year" is a man-made concept describing the time it takes our insignificant little speck of rock to make a single revolution around our insignificant little star (the sun). It is an arbitrary measure of time in the grand scheme of things, and it is presumptuous of us to assume that one who has a hand in the grand scheme would measure time in the same way that we do.

The sun being created on the 4th day is a pretty good indication that a day was not 24 hours.

It is clearly stated in the Bible to Father God a day is as a thousand years and a thousand years is as a day. Further more in Genesis ch. 1 the earth was formed not void but became void and was reestablished just as Father told man to REplenish the earth therefore at some point the earth had been plenished (inhabited previously) There is an incredible amount of ignorance in the (traditions of men churches).

If you were on a planet that takes 1,000 earth years to make a single orbit, then your "year" is 1,000 earth years. If you were to look at the earth and claim it was 5,000 'years' old, then we would measure it at 5 million years. If your planet takes a million years to make a single trip around its sun, then the earth is 5,000 years old.

Let's suppose that you were a being that measured 'years' in the time it takes your GALAXY to make a single revolution (a 'galactic year'). In the case of the Milky Way, it takes about 250 million years to make one revolution. If God bides His time in galactic years, and He measures our earth at 5,000 years old, then the earth (and the universe), are MUCH older than science has ever dared presume!

No. You are just playing with semantics. There is a real difference in time measurements. Take a ride on an Apollo rocket around the moon. Time how long it takes. Then compare your reading with the time measured at Houston control. Your times will not match. BUT BOTH TIMES ARE CORRECT! The fact that the rocket is moving, creates the difference in the elapsed times.

Same thing holds with the difference between Gods 6 days and our 15b years. BOTH TIMES ARE CORRECT. No need to play word games.

Let the Blood Games continue.

Only weeks after election 2012 and years before election 2016, in a routine interview, a glossy pop magazine popped Florida Senator Marco Rubio with an oddball question: How old do you think the earth is? Rubio responded a bit clumsily and noncommittally. Smelling blood and opportunity, the wolf pack bared fangs and chased.

Their game is either to force Rubio to affirm a personal belief the earth is 4.5 billion years old—disturbing some of his religious supporters--or to mock and stigmatize him and others who could harbor any delusional...
