I wrote a book once.
It was a fantasy story, and the world in which it took place was about 1,500 years old. It took 2 years for me to write. (It never got published. But…)
If I can create a world that’s 1,500 years old, using words, in 2 years, I’m pretty sure that God can create a universe that’s 13.7 billion years old, using stars and atoms and dinosaurs and people and quantum physics, in 6 days.
His plot’s probably better than mine, too.
Update: Whatever else I believe in, I believe in evolution. I’m curious as to why there’s no room for that and Genesis to both be right, which is why I wrote this. It was a deliberately short piece, intended to be thought-provoking but not very serious, and I didn’t have room to cover every single version of creationism.
I have a number of mails and comments suggesting that I should have taken into account the possibility that there is no God.
I wasn’t attempting to argue that there was. I might do that in a later post, but it wasn’t the aim of this one. So, please – enough with the mails.
