God versus Science Questions & Other Musings

About: geologic time: age of the earth

Science seems to think that the age of the Earth is about 4.5 billion years give or take a couple of billion.  Recorded history is only a few thousand years. Why if God created the Earth several billion years ago did he wait so long to create people who could read & write ?





















The early 20th century British essayist G.K. Chesterton once observed

A nanosecond after the Big Bang was anything traveling faster than the speed of light? Is the current believed size of the universe & it's age compatible with the expansion of something (say a micro black hole full of stuff) to the size of the universe over the amount of time the universe is said to have aged since the Big Bang ?



Mark de LA says

Would that it were actually that way.  It's more like this for science:

Get an idea -> Formulate a computer model->Ignore contradicting real world evidence->go to faith model->etc.

Most so-called science is about getting grants, finding statistics that support one's theory, publishing, building one's reputation & job security.
