His love is bigger than I can grasp, bigger--infinitely bigger--than even the Grand Canyon!
This leaves little room for much more than ten to thirty thousand years as the true age of the earth.The earth has many layers of sediments thousands of feet thick.How could one year-long catastrophe account for all this sediment? The Grand Canyon is almost three hundred miles long, a mile deep, and four to twelve miles across.ICR believes that the strata, the layers of rock in the Grand Canyon, were primarily formed during Noah's flood perhaps only five thousand years ago.Most geologists, including Christian old-earth creationists, believe that the strata were laid down over hundreds of millions of years.Unfortunately, neither Christian conservative Old Testament scholars nor Christian scientists are in universal agreement.
This topic covers a broad spectrum of issues so I am going to try and narrow the focus of the discussion.
Other old-earth creationists simply suggest that what is communicated in Genesis 1 is a literary form of the ancient Near East describing a perfect creation.
Genesis 1 was never intended to communicate history, at least in their view.
One's first view of the Grand Canyon is a humbling experience. I was mesmerized and could hardly contain my excitement when I caught my first glimpse of the canyon.
I was there to partake in a six-day geology hike into the canyon with the Institute for Creation Research, a young-earth creationist organization.
However, some will very quickly tell you that the earth was created during creation week and can be no more than six to ten thousand years old.
