My Son came home from school and told me he had an argument with his teacher, the teacher said that the Earth was millions of years old

and of course my Son retorted that the Earth is exactly 6023 years old. My Son went on to say that this is supported by creation science and great scientists like Dr Kent Hovind and Dr Ken Ham. This teacher clearly thought he knew better and said that the dinosaurs were around millions of years before humans. I asked my Son to stop there as I could bear it no more. Does this 'teacher' not know that the illuminati, NASA and the Royal Family of the UK planted these 'dinosaur' bones in 1756 to fool people into thinking that we live on an old Earth. I sometimes despair, is this the level of teaching we expect from the money we pay in our taxes?

Somewhere in a museum there is a painting of George II with a shovel in one hand and a fake bone in the other

I hope this is a joke. If not, it sucks to be you.

Have you heard of scientific carbon dating?
@AndysAttic I don't believe in Babylonians ... I mean, I've never [i]seen[/i] a Babylonian ... Babylonians are a hoax

@BreadAndCircuses On a serious note, there are some people that believe this sort of silliness...and it is silliness which pushes science to the side and I find that quite disturbing. Many believe to protagonists of the 'lie'...flat Earthers and such are not believers of it but can make lot's of money deceiving others.
@AndysAttic NASA did not existed in 1565. People were having hard time building boats and ships and colonies. Spanish era and they found america as well.
Ofcourse earth is millions of years old. The evolution took severals of millions of years. Do you think men and women just dropped on earth and started building families and home? Evolution is a huge process and it take millions of years.

Yeah, as his teacher I told your son that I know he is right, but I teach what the book says of course. The book is a little behind the times because they found blood vessels recently in dinos and they aren't exactly millions of years old like the book says. We have to go by the curriculum even if it is outdated. You have a bright son 🙂

Are you trolling or really this dense to accept the word of the convicted felon Hovind?

Also, nowhere ns scripture does it say the Earth is "flat" or "young".
I have some bad news for both the teacher and your son ... Earth is actually [i]billions[/i] (with a 'B') of years old

@BreadAndCircuses Well, well, fascinating, fancy that.
