And here is another very interesting discussion, although it might be suspected of bias, it seems to be only based on scientific litterature. The comment section is interesting:

So it appears, that there might not be much in fact here.

Now, I personally dont know how old the earth is, but , if i had to make a decision I would say alot longer then 6,000 years..
but what I find intersting is that, and I havent heard this debated yet, the apparently constant decay rate of isotopes is actaully not constant at all, that was an assumption that has now been seemingly proven wrong..
It seems the rate of decay is affected and changes cyclicly with the suns rotation and with the seasons...
check out these links and tell me what you think, does this put a question mark over all dates we have ascertained?

I personally feel that those who believe in a literal creation are completely missing the allegory, science, and philosophy within our most ancient texts. I think they should do some real resaerch into the origins of there religion.
Not that i am convinced by evolutions mechanisms either...
but what do you guys think of this, cause for concern?

well, doesnt Darwin make the statement that God does not exist?
No, Darwin said nothing of the like in any of his books. But in my opinion the issue is pointless. It's not even about science anymore, just religious fanaticism, which I think is totally uncool. And I'm not just talking about the creationists; certain atheists are just as guilty of religious fanaticism and intolerance as anyone else.

I think deliberately killing innocents is one of the worst forms of fundamentalism, with all others being lesser evils. To be fair, Christianity does have its share of terrorist groups (northern Ireland, for example), as do atheists and every other religion, but most such organizations identify themselves as Islamic.
