Far from being a scientist at all, but then neither are you, Einstein was talking UNIVERSE, not the earth. BIG difference, and whatever's expanding NOW from the nucleus or in incomprehensible scientific terms,(to me anyhow, maybe not to you)boundary is 6,500 years old, why maybe even less, but the earth, not the universe, is billions of years old and hurtling further out in the Milky Way. The universe and the earth are two sets of things, Rogue.Rogue Scholar 05 wrote:

Yes, I believe that the Earth is both about 6.4 billion years old and at the same time it is about 6,500 years old and it was explained by ....... Dr. Albert Einstein in his Theory of Relativity. The question is, "How did the writers of the Bible know about Einstein?"
There is a lot we do not know!
Except for generalities, I will not tackle the theory of relativity. It was well explained in layman's terms in McIsaac's biography of Albert Einstein, which was most interesting but I confess to not have understood it all that well. I could use wojar's vast knowledge of the matter.
