I don't know if earth started 6000 years ago or 5.2 billion years ago...
However, I do agree with Albert Einstein:
Every one who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe-a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble.
This I do know...
There is NO WAY life spontaneously generated itself out of dead stuff. And then that fictional one-celled organism - with no purpose, planning, reason, or design; stayed alive, nourished itself, and figured out how to reproduce. Nope... nope... nope! Sorry. That bankrupt idea completely violates the laws of science, reason, and sound judgement.
This is where this thread was intended to go, isn't it?
