There are actually many serious scientists who believe the earth is only thousands of
years old.
Dr. Baumgardner, who works in the theoretical division of Loss Alamos who invented Terra 3 the computer program used to map the earths tectonics movement - is one such scientist.
He is not a child
//
i'm going to research his work... does he have any scientific papers published?
I'm sure he does.
It is a fantastic story.
What got me was the part after he trusted Jesus, he instinctively was turned away from sins - he didn't even know was sin.
Reminds me of the promise God gave in Jeremiah:
*[[Jer 31:31-34]] BBE*%v 31% See, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new agreement with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah:%v 32% Not like the agreement which I made with their fathers, on the day when I took them by the hand to be their guide out of the land of Egypt; which agreement was broken by them, and I gave them up, says the Lord.%v 33% But this is the agreement which I will make with the people of Israel after those days, says the Lord; I will put my law in their inner parts, writing it in their hearts; and I will be their God, and they will be my people.%v 34% And no longer will they be teaching every man his neighbour and every man his brother, saying, Get knowledge of the Lord: for they will all have knowledge of me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord: for they will have my forgiveness for their evil-doing, and their sin will go from my memory for ever.

Dr. Richard Lumsden, an Evolutionary Scientist who Met God.

was born, raised, and half-educated in New Orleans.  My family was Christian believers, and did their best to bring me up accordingly.  By their good guidance and persuasion, during my formative years, I went to church and Sunday School, was taught the Bible and the Christian ethic.  But at the same time I was being taught something else.  The pictures in my grade school science text, of ape men struggling in a primitive existence, were a lot different than those of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden that I was being shown in Sunday School, and I got the impression that my Sunday School teachers weren’t altogether convinced of their literality either.  But science dealt with facts!  The further I went into secular education, the more I was taught about evolution, the more I learned thereby of the world and man’s view of it, the less credible the Bible became.  In the beginning there was the word ... but the word was
hydrogen!   And if the first parts of the Bible were just allegory, what about the rest of it?  I remained a nominal Christian, but hardly a believer.  
           After all, as a college student and science major, I was dedicating myself to the study and mastery of the natural world, not the supernatural.  Moreover, being a professing Christian, attending

in the circles I was traveling then, and much less so later.  However, I never had the guts to outright deny God’s existence.  I’m reminded of Blaise Pascal, the 17th century mathematician and philosopher, who put it this way –“If I say there is no God, and there is no God, it matters not.  If I say there is a God, but there is no God, it still matters not.  However, if I say there is no God, but there is a God, God help me!”  
           So I played it safe.  Rather than risk being a professed atheist who guessed wrong, I was a wimpy agnostic.  I just didn’t know, but wasn’t going to spend a lot of time worrying about it.  After all, I wasn’t going to be tested on it.  I graduated from Tulane, and then went on to study at Harvard and Rice,  picking up a Ph. D. in Biology in the process, then found myself back at Tulane as a professor.  As a professional biological scientist and educator, I was pre-occupied with the physical, material, and chemical aspects of biological phenomena – what I could measure, weigh, and see, even if it took an electron microscope to see it.  God had no place in my science or my personal life.  Not that I totally ignored religion, however.  Indeed, out of an avocational interest in history and philosophy, I had taken a course or two in comparative religion

most of the belief systems I read embraced evolution in one form
or another, by the way) and had even attended a literature course on the Bible.  So, from Sunday School on, I’d studied and a lot about God, but spiritually I knew Him not ... and felt out of a nagging superstitious apprehension, that the less He knew about me the better.  
           Meanwhile as a biologist, I’d studied Evolution Theory, memorized it, passed exams to show I’d mastered it, and for the most part, came to accept it as a valid theory of origins.  Such questions I had were ignored, or dismissed as being not well thought out.  Certainly none of my professors had ever seriously mentioned an alternative.  So, I’d been taught evolution well, even religiously, and so I taught the dogma of Evolution Theory to my students, equally religiously, on faith.  For what I was teaching about evolution, were really only suppositions and hypotheses, assumptions,“what ifs”– not hard facts and evidence.  Actually, much of what I was teaching my students about biochemistry, genetics, and cell biology contradicted Evolution. But I was blind to that.  Somehow the rules of real science and logic we apply to all other scientific theories are set aside
