Scientists (note spelling) have plenty of evidence (note word usage) of human habitation on Earth for well over 6000 years. Far more than you would probably understand.

a mind far far away

So when all the proof and evidence points to man being here for well over 300,000 years, and much longer, what does that make you? A denier of reality and a believer in fairy tales. I feel sorry for you, really, that you are such an ignorant fucktard.

What proof do they have? Well, I'd say a cache of 13,000 year old tools is some of that proof...

Sedimentary layers, fossils, the remains left in caves of now extinct animals, carbon dating. All this is a lot more reliable than a book of stolen fables.

Haha, you can't even spell "scientist" right!

Some copypasta for you:

"Usually, even a non-Christian knows something about the earth, the heavens, and the other elements of this world, about the motion and orbit of the stars and even their size and relative positions, about the predictable eclipses of the sun and moon, the cycles of the years and the seasons, about the kinds of animals, shrubs, stones, and so forth, and this knowledge he hold to as being certain from reason and experience. Now, it is a disgraceful and dangerous thing for an infidel to hear a Christian, presumably giving the meaning of Holy Scripture, talking nonsense on these topics; and we should take all means to prevent such an embarrassing situation, in which people show up vast ignorance in a Christian and laugh it to scorn. The shame is not so much that an ignorant individual is derided, but that people outside the household of faith think our sacred writers held such opinions, and, to the great loss of those for whose salvation we toil, the writers of our Scripture are criticized and rejected as unlearned men. If they find a Christian mistaken in a field which they themselves know well and hear him maintaining his foolish opinions about our books, how are they going to believe those books in matters concerning the resurrection of the dead, the hope of eternal life, and the kingdom of heaven, when they think their pages are full of falsehoods and on facts which they themselves have learnt from experience and the light of reason? Reckless and incompetent expounders of Holy Scripture bring untold trouble and sorrow on their wiser brethren when they are caught in one of their mischievous false opinions and are taken to task by those who are not bound by the authority of our sacred books. For then, to defend their utterly foolish and obviously untrue statements, they will try to call upon Holy Scripture for proof and even recite from memory many passages which they think support their position, although they understand neither what they say nor the things about which they make assertion."
St Augustine of Hippo

You would be wise to listen to Augustine.

THE BIBLE NEVER SAYS WHAT THE AGE OF THE EARTH IS

EVER

THAT WAS FIGURED OUT IN THE MIDDLE AGES BY A DICKWAD WHO THOUGHT HE KNEW WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT BUT DIDN'T

IN PROFESSING HIMSELF TO BE WISE, HE BECAME A FOOL

Oh, I dunno, just A COUPLE HUNDRED THOUSAND YEARS OF REMAINS...

Um. Okay. The 13,000yo tools are good hint. Also, remains have been found that are MILLIONS of years old. Coal and oil can take millions of years to form. Aaaand there's a typo and a few grammer mistakes.

Not what Ussher said, he was just playing a game.

Carbon Dating?

Carbon dating. And no, we don't have "blind faith" in carbon dating, it has been proven time and time again to be rather reliable.

Your book on the other hand... Did God create Adam first and then the animals, or the animals first and then Adam? If the first two chapters can't even agree, why should we listen to the rest?

Don't some Christian sources admit that the Earth can be 10 000 years old? Then 13 000 IS "give or take". But it is streching it a bit. It will be harder when they find a cache of 27 000 year old tools.

"What proof does sceintists have to say that man has been here longer than that."

According to Archeologists, the site of the city of Jericho has been inhabited, off and on, for a lot longer than 6,000 years. Jericho is in the bible, so it must be true. But it has been inhabited longer than 6,000 years, it can;t be true.

Work your way out of that Richard

"Professing themselves to be wise, (sceintist), they became fools. Rom 1:22"

Matthew 5:22 (KJV; emphasis added): 'But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.'

'Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.'

-Seneca the Younger

I'd rather believe what scientists say than the ramblings of ancient nomads who were probably smoking goat dung to get high.

13 000 year old tools are fairly good evidence that man has been around for longer than 6000 years. It's not terribly complicated - except to head-in-the-sand morons like Richard here.

The oldest Indus Valley civilization has been dated to 15,000 B.C.E. or so, predating Mesopotamia by several thousand years. Just sayin'.
