be possible for everything to "get done" in that much time.
And, as SGTex just asked, how about stars that are more than 10,000 light years away- how come we can see them? Rate of continental drift...more than 10,000 years of repositioning continents...geological data for that, just strata data. Have you seen the Columbia River, for instance? That's pretty much like driving along the Grand Canyon and you can see the layers of sedimentation. Have you been to an Old Growth Forest? Seen petrified palm wood here in Texas (which is celebrated as the state of Texas stone- see link).
To believe that the earth is that young is to choose to ignore the proof that tells us otherwise.
And here's a question, if I might be borrowing from Rachel--
WHY is it important to believe something that just isn't so? Explanation, if you will.........
