How Old Is Our Earth
INTELLIGENT DESIGN VS. EVOLUTION

As we trace recorded history, we find in recorded history from the time of Adam only about six thousand years, down to about 1993.

To show you how dependent evolutionists are on an old earth, in the Friday, October 15, 1993 edition of the Amarillo Globe News, there was a guest editorial entitled, "Fundamentalists Gain Control Over Education."
