I am a committed Christian. I believe the Bible is the inspired word of God. For years I have struggled to reconcile the biblical account of creation with the so-called indisputable evidence for evolution and an old universe.
When you read the Genesis account it so clearly describes a process of creation by a God who spoke, and out of nothing brought life in all its forms -- plants, trees, sun, moon, fish, birds, animals, and man. About the time I convince myself that that is really what I believe, I get hammered by a myriad voices (from atheists to born-again Christians) who scoff at the possibility of a young earth fashioned by a Creator.
There are incredible pressures today to subscribe to science's "party line". A person holding to biblical creation is typically viewed as an uneducated Bible thumper. If you are a professional in the sciences you jeopardize your career if you suggest a theory other than millions of years of macroevolution.
I watched two videos recently that were extremely helpful to me. If you have an open mind (and are not offended by God) you will be challenged and surprised by the body of evidence that can paint a far different picture than what is being taught in school today.
