2 Peter 3:8
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day [is] with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
To scientists and their scientific notation, the earth could seem "billions and billions" of years old but just as anyone who's worked with scientific notation knows, it's real easy to drop off or add on a zero or two. I slaughtered scientific notation but I'm no great mathematician either. Plus, who says "carbon dating" is not whacked out in this same sense? Or that the "great deceiver" could not manipulate data?
There's a story that when Neil Armstrong stood on the moon that his moonboot only went down into the "cosmic dust" like 1/4 inch or so. The idea being if we've been here "billions and billions" of years like the scientists insist, he'd of sunk waaaay down in the cosmic dust. ????
I don't claim to know what is correct, I only know that God does not exist in "time". "Time" is a measurement used by man.
