Several scientists have determined that the earth is approximately 4.54 billion years old (Randy, 2008).
Can it be reconciled with the message of the Bible?There are Christians, like Darwin, that have accepted Christianity as well as evolution into their belief system. This varies upon person to person, but some only believe in microevolution and vice versa.I do no think that just because you accept one, that that does not mean that you have to reject the other.There are also some people that believe that God was the catalyst to evolution, causing it.
Christian WorldviewChristians believe in a variety of ideas, their faith lies with God.They believe:God created the worldJesus Christ died on the cross for their sinsThey can believe in evolution, but most do notThe consequences of their actions are Heaven or Hell
My BeliefsMy faith is also somewhat varying, but I consider myself Agnostic.I believe:Earth was created from matter almost 5 billion years agoHumans evolved from primatesEverybody has the right to choose their own religious belief systemI do not reject the idea of a God, but I also do not believe in one
How everything impacts my worldviewI have come to understand the Christian worldview much better, but my personal worldview has not really changed.I had never thought about where exactly morality cam from, but it is interesting to think about my moral compass coming from Christianity.
