    This is a poll about the earth and other bodies in space and time, and ideas of how they came to be. By "unscientific poll," I mean these are likely not the best questions to ask, as I am not a scientist, as well as that the results will be far from any scientific sample of our population.

    Whether there were enough questions or the questions were scientific enough, they were interesting choices.

    I wish you had on there the statement that the universe was created in 6 days, and left off the age.

    In my opinion, and the way I interpret the Bible, the earth IS less than 10,000 years old - way less...
