Was Eve Created 6000 Years Ago?
How old is the earth? Billions of years or just thousands of years?
In the beginning God created... how long ago was it that God created? In the 1990's, studying mitochondrial DNA, scientists determined Eve lived 200,000 years ago. But by the end of the 1990's they had learned more about the mutation rate of DNA, and that number dropped down to 6000 years. God created Eve on day six, 6000 years ago,
Here is what happened: Originally it was thought that our DNA was composed of 80% junk... leftovers from failed mutations that did not produce a benefit. But, in the late 1990's it was found that the junk DNA was not junk, but performed important functions. This dramatically changed the DNA mutation rate, and resulting in the date of the first human woman being revised to be in the range of 6,000 years.
It's now been nearly 20 years since junk DNA was debunked by secular geneticists, but this has largely been ignored by believers in evolution. Why? Because it proves evolution is impossible. Anything that shows evolution is impossible must be attacked, and if it can't be attacked it is ignored.
It is important to note that Mitochondrial DNA does not scientifically prove that Eve was the first woman. It only shows that everyone alive today descends from one woman who lived about 6,000 years ago. The facts of mitochondrial DNA alone allow for other women to have existed before Eve, or at the same time as Eve, but their children did not survive to leave evidence of their existence. Mitochondrial DNA is consistent with the Biblical account, but on it's own it does not rule out evolution. However, as shown in another of our videos, that "junk" DNA is actually functional means we are not only not evolving, we are heading for extinction.

THE ANSWER TO RIOTS
Everything is falling apart, nothing makes sense anymore. What's happening?
What is happening is that the world has turned away from God. When nations turn away from God, strangely enough, God turns His back on them. We find out what it is like to live without God.
There is only one thing to do... repent, turn to Jesus Christ in obedience. Jesus said:
If you love Me, you will keep My commandments. - John 14:15
This can only be done on an individual basis. Don't look to others turning to God and making things better for you. YOU must repent, turn away from disobedience. Love God! Obey what He says. Read the Bible to find out what He says.
It happens one person at a time, starting with you. Don't put it off today. Turn to Jesus Christ, God who came to earth in human flesh to save us from the penalty we've earned as a result of our disobedience (sin). He will do it! ...
BUT ONLY when you believe this is true and put your trust in Jesus. Trust Jesus today. Repent (turn away from what the world wants and to what God wants).
Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” - Matthew 4:17
