Geoglocal time is working to a different timescale. They are not thinking of 24 hour days, 7 day weeks. They actually measure percentages and make estimates on a different measurment. Also, i think some scientists just bandy about years thinking that years means 365 days, but a year is basically when the earth. Makes a full orbit around the sun and it could have been faster or slower depending on how fast or slow God wanted to turn the earth!It seems to me that the root of the differences come down to those who ridgeidly and dogmatically hold to a 24 hour, 7 day, 365 day year of creation no matter what.
Again, it comes down to what we understand about Creation and whether it is a 6 day event or is there some kind of explanation where we are just not given the whole story in Genesis. Is it Old earth or Young earth? We all like a mystery and when we do not have the details our minds go to work and our brains fill in the gaps.
Through the use of radiometric dating, scientists have been able to estimate the age of the earth to be within a percent or two of 4.54 billion years. A literal interpretation Genesis, however, tells us something very different.
Just the fact that man has dug up the skeletons of animals who science says lived millions of years ago should cause our light to go on.
The Bible provides details about many of the descendants of Adam (the first man), including some information about the ages at which these descendants had children and died. But it is also true that the genealogies of man have many, many gaps in them. A number of biblical scholars have used this information (combined sometimes with information elsewhere in the Bible) to construct accounts of how old the earth must be, with estimates ranging from about 6,000 to 10,000 years, in dramatic contradiction with the scientific estimate.
Science is convinced that all dinosaur bones must be at least 65 million years old. Those who take Genesis as real history would predict that no dinosaur bone is more than a few thousand years old.
So the challenge then is how do we reconcile that obvious difference when we are holding a dinosaur bone in our hand?
