You've Got Questions, We've Got Answers

The ever helpful Answers In Genesis provides a comforting answer for Christians troubled by the fossil evidence:

Q: Are fossils millions of years old?

A: All over the world we find fossils-these are the buried remains of creatures that are preserved in rocks. Many Christians say that they believe the fossil record must be millions of years old. After all, that's what most scientists are saying. But not all scientists believe this. And, even more importantly, the Bible tells us that death of man and animals did not occur until after the first man, Adam, sinned (Romans 5:12). So there couldn't have been animal or human fossils before sin.

More importantly, the Bible tells us...

Yes, you read it right, the collected mythology of a people who didn't know the existence of the Americas, Australia, or Antarctica, who had neither a telescope nor a microscope, who couldn't build a clock or a bicycle, much less a car or a plane, who believed the sun revolved around the earth, trumps the greatest accomplishments of our species -- the accumulated knowledge of the past 2,000 years.

Funny, we don't find that very comforting...
