    Hi BB,

    I'm a YEC and I believe the scriptures teach us the Earth was created in 6 literal days. I also believe that they teach that the Earth is young (e.g. less than 12,000 years old). I'm looking to debate an OEC that believes the scriptures teach that the Earth is old.

    Now, science is a different issue. I'm not as interested in discussing what Christian science or even current, secular science says about the age of the Earth; although I could. I'm primarily interested in what the scriptures say and how an OEC could support his/her argument with the Bible.

    I'm open to discussing debate parameters. I suggest a 7 round debate with no more than 5,000 words per post and no more than 10 days between posts.

    Do I have any takers? If you're interested, please either post or email/PM me your bio, educational background, and debate history. That's all I ask.

    God bless,
    Jason Gastrich
