How Old Is The Earth?
Did you know that the Bible does not say that the earth is 6000-11000 years old, as some creationist claim? If you read the Bible, for yourself, you will find that number belongs to the time that life has been on this earth. As are matter-of-fact, The Book of Genesis tells us that God created the world and it was without form and was void. The book of Jeremiah tells us that it was not created originally without form and was not void. According to an actual Hebrew dictionary, the Hebrew word "Hayah", originally translated as "was" in the Genesis 1:2 phrase, "The Earth was..." could easily be translated as, "The Earth became Without Form and Void", making both Genesis and Jeremiah complimentary, rather than contradictory, opening up the age of the earth to an unknown amount of years. You see, the apparent contradiction is only there, if we read the book of Genesis as traditional thought dictates.
