If the world is only 6000 years old how do they explain this

Ok this is the oldest living tree it is 9500 years old. simple math proves it. But I guess people were mistaken when they counted the rings or the devil planted it to throw off christians. There are other 3000+ year old trees on the link.

 

The world’s oldest known living tree sprouted sometime during the last Ice Age, roughly 9,550 years ago. This 16-foot spruce in the Dalarna province of Sweden may look more like a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree, but don’t be fooled: this little guy’s root system got started back when the British Isles were still connected to Europe by an ice bridge. According to Wired, geologist Leif Kullman, who discovered the tree, named it after his dead dog.

Creationist will want to know how the scientist could know for a fact how old the tree is without having been alive when it sprouted. Or, they will ignore the article as something written by those godless Europeans who are in a conspiracy to disprove god's existence so that they can have guilt free sex.

Yep but since all they have to do is count the tree rings from the core sample that would be hard to discount. of course they will but still.

I have a friend who believes this stuff. I told him about the tree and he said it was either a lie or a mistake. I should probablysafe he isn't a fundid and our friendship has nothing to do with religion thank goodness... We just agree to disagree most times.

The real answer they would give: it was created that way, so even though it look older it really isn't, like how Adam was created looking and acting 30 years old when really he was only a few hours old.

That's right, we're looking at one of God's original trees, designed directly by him. :D

Pando is a grove of Quaking Aspen that are all genetically identical because they are direct off shoots of the same tree that sprouted something like 80,000 years ago.

Came in here to post this. The theory is that God created the world instantly as already old, for whatever reason.

Another popular theory (I've seen it more on Jewish boards) is that THIS instance of creation happened 6000 (well, slightly less - this year is 5772!) years ago, but there may have been other worlds before this one, and the old stuff is remnants from those earlier worlds that God left behind. I guess he's a no-till sorta guy :)

Some people also say that nature (how the world works) has "changed" a few times since Creation, this supposedly explains why people in the early books of the Bible were able to live to 900+ years old, but we don't. So if those old trees were around, their ages would be distorted too.

These theories are for old things found on the Earth. When it comes to light-year distances and whatnot, they'll use the "the universe was created old" thing, but ALSO another theory that says that the speed of light has actually changed over time (another instance of "nature has changed").

Easy. They say that God can create a tree that appears to already be 9500 years old. Or stars that seem millions of light years away. And so on! Duh!!!!

They explain it by claiming that Science is wrong, just because it disagrees with their narrow interpretation of the bible.

but it is not science just simple addition. If your faith requires denying math you are in big trouble.

Yet these same nut-cases somehow know god has no beginning though they weren't around when he, uh, didn't begin, nor were they around when Jesus supposedly rose from the dead.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Therapy Outside the Box

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!

      Had ankle surgery on the 22nd and am non-weight-bearing until the 7th, and it would great if I could REMEMBER that I'm not weight-bearing until I try to step on my splinted ankle.
