It is ONLY possible to be convinced in ones mind that Creation was the way the earth came about, by the revelation of the Holy Spirit. The basis for one conviction is that of faith, and not because some Scientist declares that creation is to be believed. The Holy Word of God tells us, that "without faith, it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God" (Hebrews 11:6). It is like the existence of God (which this text in Hebrews is speaking of, as it goes on to say, "for he that cometh to God must believe that He exists..."), which can only be by faith, wich is twofold, in His Word the Bible, and in creation, both of which witness to a Creator God. Now, we have the evidence of creation on the highest authority. For the Lord Jesus Himself said: "Mark 13:19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the CREATION which GOD CREATED unto this time, neither shall be." No one can be convinced of this by argument, unless of course the person has an "open mind", which would allow the Holy Spirit to show them that creation is the ONLY way!
