If I need God to believe in 6000 years, then it's really not a scientific guess at all, is it?
Actually, as scott has pointed out already, it IS a scientific "guess" - (sorry, I'm going to shout) BECAUSE IT IS THE ONLY
WE HAVE - the lineages given in the Bible
The Bible, not a single historical account it contains, has EVER been proven false - many have tried, but the result was that they actually proved it to be true.
If the Bible is true on every account, then it IS true on the account of Creation and the subsequent lineages - showing empirically that the history of Earth is 6000 years.
So, whether you believe God or not - it's still the only reliable
empirical evidence we have.
It's easy enough for a child to understand!
Matthew 18:3And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Your retort could be:
But 1 Corinthians 13:11 says "When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
Here is the answer:
We are to believe as a child, while at the same time we are to "have dominion over...". The balance comes when our limited human understanding seems to
contradict what the Bible says, that is when we must rely on faith.
The OP asks for "Cosmological Evidence For A Young Universe", the only evidence we have is what we have here on Earth. We assume things about the universe, but again it is not empirical - so we must rely on empirical evidence we have here. The only reliable/proven evidence we have, thus far, is the Bible - the Bible says 6000 years - we must include the universe in this calculation.
That is why this thread is useless, the OP'er has already said they won't accept our "evidence" - so why even ask in the first place? (rhetorical)
I'm coming to the point of having an "ecclesiastical" attitude in this forum! People asking for information they will never accept, just doesn't seem like a good way to spend my time
