He brought up a really good point when he asked me "just what does that have to do with your salvation?" I haven't worried about the age of the earth since then.

I don't know how old the earth is, I said 6000 years to spite the moderator who basically said I had to live forever to enjoy my fantasy because he takes his fantasies too seriously or just enjoys ruining others fantasies, not sure which.

Oh, okay. I've been into some of those debates, and always looking for new view points.

You have a great point but I doubt the powers that be would allow us to debate it. Wouldn't be much of a debate anyway, we think alike it seems.

I always just go with: If I was supposed to know, the bible would say so.

I figure the dinosaurs and such were here sometime between day one and the creation of man.

The older cars had bad brakes, no seat belts or air bags, they had glass that would cut you to ribbons and steering columns that could penetrate your chest in a fender-bender. Tires were not near as good as today.Ten to fifteen miles to a gallon of (.$29 ) gas was considered average

Cars are one of the things that have improved a great deal in my lifetime.

And that's why my '50 Chevy Stepside was still going strong with the original motor and drive train when I sold it back in 2002? Huh. And to think, my '05 Focus didn't last 5k miles before it needed a new computer and cv axle.


Nah... The new ones may last longer (in some cases), but the older ones were infinitely easier to fix. Where I had no choice but to put the focus in the shop, I could fix about anything on my '50 Chevy with a hammer and duct tape. And my '65 Ford F100. And my '70 Cougar.

Really, a person has to just choose for themselves who they're going to believe-God, or the scientists.

I believe in my God. I just think that it's possible there are unanswerable questions, and some of them are unanswerable because there's no good reason for them to be answered. Like the age of the earth. It doesn't concern my faith and salvation, so it doesn't really matter to me.

With a non vented gas tank behind the seat NEVER for the life of me could i figure THAT ONE out.

But yeah, there was more (good quality) steel in the drivers door of that truck than there is a full size luxury car these days. Engines that actually had compression and HP. I could go on and on for days....

Yeah, the gas tank was nuts. And that 300cid straight 6.... top speed in mine, with a 3 on the tree, was 55mph going down hill. But I pulled a big rig (no trailer) to a truck stop with it.

As am I. I read the book, have fellowship with other believers, and I don't go to church.
