In response to Mr. Simmonds' "Modern science should factor into your beliefs" (May 11) letter:
You claim the universe is billions of years old and that science is way ahead of God's antiquated Bible. Were you there, sir, when God laid down the foundations of the universe? Neither was I, but God was there.
If we trace the lineage of Jesus Christ through God's word, we have a convenient timeline from the beginning of creation, and tracing back from 2016 to Jesus' time is about 2000 years, from Jesus to Noah is about 2000 years and from Noah to Adam is another 2000 years.
The Bible then states all was created in six days, which puts the Earth at just over 6000 years old, not billions of years as some would have you believe.
If God is all powerful, why couldn't he do it in six days like he said? By the way, some atheist scientists took some microscopic pictures of a Tyrannosaurus rex bone, which was supposedly 65 million years old, but they discovered red blood cells that couldn't possibly be that old.
I'm afraid we are all influenced by the secular world. I guess I'm just a fundamental Bible believer.
"A fool says in his heart, there is no God" (Psalm 14:1) and "The foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men" (1 Corinthians 1:25).
