See, you don't account for the fact that god knew one day man had math and telescopes and here sped it all up for the first 5,500 years and then cleaned it all up so it all looks constant. You can't prove he didn't do that.

Ok, MacArthur, return from that!

Actually, I think many (if not most) of them do make that claim. Their whole rationale is that the creation account in Genesis is scientifically and historically accurate, and must be read literally. In Genesis, the earth was created before the stars, and in any event, all of it was created within a 6-day period, and therefore is approximately the same age (within 6 days). The 6000-year age is arrived at by adding up the lifespans of people as given in the Bible, starting with Adam -- and Adam was there only a few days after the creation of everything else. Ergo, the universe is 6000 years old.
Amazing (YEC's). Facepalm Ok, good to know, thanks.

I believe the equivalent for how wrong the YEC are is saying the distance from New York to Los Angeles is 40 feet. The JW are saying no it is 120 ft. So yeah a bit better but still horribly wrong.

I know, I was being sarcastic.
