As usual, Dr. Craig provides a solid argument that seems hard to refute. The point that stuck out the most to me was near the end of the session. When having a conversation with a person of secular belief in regards to the age of the universe, it doesn't matter if you think it's billions or years old or thousands of years old. The point is, there WAS a beginning. And the question is, how can you start a beginning with nothing? The only plausible answer can be an Intelligent Creator.

Man, first it's the 'bobs' and now it's the 'chads.'

Chad V,

I agree with you here. I am continually amazed at those who make such an issue out of the age of the earth. For me, at this stage of my studies, it's simply not a hill to die on.

When we stand before God, He is not going to say, "Chad, do you believe the earth is (fill in the blank) old or not?"

It is through repentance and trusting in Christ and His sacrifice on the cross for our sins, that secures our salvation.

The age of the earth is an important issue; however, it's not THE issue.
