One of the most useless subjects for believers to argue about is how many years old the earth is. A lot of Christians believe the Bible can be true only if science comes up with the same number of years as Genesis from creation to now. But here's the problem: If science can “prove” the authority of the Bible, then science, not the Bible, is really the authority. Either we believe the Bible is true or we don't. If it is, then whatever science tells us doesn't matter at all.
