now that we have progressed with sceience, we can answer most of those questions.
Then answer them.
Where does life come from? How did life begin?
The Bible tells us that God created everything.
Evolution tells us we came from a rock.
Now I enjoy and am fasinated with science but macro evolution IS NOT science. It's a myth. I use to, at one time, claim to be an Athiest but no matter how hard I tried to believe it, I just couldn't grasp some of the riduclous things that you have to accept to believe there is no God. For a good amount of time, I was agnostic. Then I called myself Christian but believed in an old Earth. But the more I tried to prove the Creation Theory was wrong, the more I saw clues that lead me to belive that a young Earth is possible. So without billions and billions of years for life to begin, macro evolution is nothing but science fiction.
Think about how most recordable history can be traced back to about the same period of time.
Take a look at Jewish Year. I believe the year 2005 is 5765 for those who follow the Jewish faith. Why?
The people of Israel (also called the "Jewish People") trace their origin to Abraham, who established the belief that there is only one God, the creator of the universe (see Old Testament). Abraham, his son Yitshak (Isaac), and grandson Jacob (Israel), are referred to as the patriarchs of the Israelites. All three patriarchs lived in the Land of Canaan, that later came to be known as the Land of Israel. They and their wives are buried in the Ma'arat HaMachpela, the Tomb of the Patriarchs, in Hebron.
The Jewish year pretty much dates the Great Flood.
The year 2005 translates to the Chinese year 4702–4703. That's 1000 years later than the Jewish year. Egypt goes back to around 3000BC I believe.
3100-2950 BC - Late Predynastic Period - Earliest known hieroglyphic writing & Foundation of the Egyptian state.
But if the Earth is 'billions' of years old then 1000 years isn't much of a time variation. So we went from no recorded history to writing books almost instantly by several civilizations and languages all around the same time?
31: These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.
32: These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.
