Scientists, archeologists, astronomers and such like, try to educate us about the earth’s layers and the age of the fossils and such, but have you ever thought about where they learned what this terrestrial ball that we live on is called?
Just where did they learn that it is called ‘Earth’? The oldest and only authority in all the earth is God’s Word. The first 5 books of the Bible were penned by Moses and inspired by God Himself!
In Genesis, the land where He created and placed man, He named it ‘Earth’. Then man comes along later and deems himself so smart, he tries to tell us that the earth is older than it is.
He had to get the idea that it is called ‘Earth’ from the Bible. There is no other authority for it. The smart men could also learn from the Bible, the approximate age of the earth if they would look up the generations and add them up. It isn’t too hard to do…and they would not come up with millions of years…not even hundreds of thousands of years. It is just a few thousand…not much over 6,000. But then they would be forced to admit there really is a God.
Strange indeed are the thoughts of men!
