OP268. Not just young, but flat too

I'm as stubborn as stubborn can be
Show me proof and aloofly I flee
No concessions to science
No facts, just defiance
That's why I remain YEC.

Young Earth Creationist, if you're wondering.  The biblical timeline from creation to the present day is roughly 6000 years.  There are trees, still alive, that have been living longer than that.  The scientific consensus is that the age of the universe is roughly 13.72 billion years old, and the earth is 4.54 billion years old.

But the thing about blind faith is that things like facts and truth are meaningless.  The exact same logic that leads someone to convince themselves the earth is 6000 years old is the logic used for one to believe the earth is flat.  Which the Catholic Church has taught for most of its existence, despite the fact it was proven to be false by the Greeks before Jesus was a thing.  Rant over.
