I've mentioned this in numerous threads now and I've been ignored, or I've been given severly inadequate answers. In any event, I decided to open a thread devoted to the subject of meteors, in an effort to stop cluttering other threads with it. So how is YEC even a remote possibility in light of the massive meteors that have crashed into earth? I'm not debating the "age" of the meteor, not yet at least. How is it possible, in a 6-10k time span that these meteors hit the earth and that mankind survived? There have been 5+ huge meteors that have struck the earth, in addition there have been over 140+ large meteors that have also hit the earth. The reason I bring up the 5 is that each of those five, by itself, is an extinction level meteor. Meaning that when it hit the earth, the entire earth was effected by it. In otherwords it's simply not even remotely possible that the earth is around 10k years old. It has to be older, unless there is some explanation of how mankind was able to survive these meteor strikes. There certainly isn't any biblical support for the strikes. I'll admit there is some biblical support for possible meteor strikes, but there isn't any for meteors this massive. So how do YEC explain them? For the most part, it seems that the YEC I've encountered have simply ignored them.
