because i want to try and help people understand the truth
What truth would that be? The fact that science cannot explain the age of our planet? They're all predictions or theories. Not saying I believe Earth is 6,000 years old or even how old science attempts to describe it as.
Not to say science doesn't have a much better understanding and method for determining an estimate than an old book filled with fairy tales, but they're just estimates. Every new discovery could prove/disprove so much. Then there are a lot of things that cannot be discovered (due to being destroyed) and only theorized about, which could change/prove/disprove a lot of theories.
Earth is probably some billions of years old, but how much can we really estimate or theorize after most of everything has been completely recycled, destroyed, transformed, etc.
Don't forget science can learn a lot from fiction as well as fact. Where would we be if nobody used their imagination and tested/attempted to disprove completely fictitious/imagined ideas?
