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.

You cannot hide anything from God, and you can't hide from God:
'Can a man hide himself in hiding places So I do not see him?' declares the LORD 'Do I not fill the heavens and the earth?' declares the LORD. - Jeremiah 23:24
Imagine you have an SD card in your head that records every thought and dream. We record for a month and then rent a theater. All your friends are invited as we play that SD card on the big screen. How would you feel?
That's what God sees. He is disgusted and knows that because of your sin (those thoughts we all see on the big screen) you will never be with God. But God still loves you, and He made an incredible sacrifice for you. He died in your place.
You have a choice. Reject God... and get what you say you want... you'll spent eternity separated from God. And that means separated from EVERYTHING that is good. Think about that.
Or accept the gift God offers... trust that Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay the penalty you've earned (remember those thoughts on the SD card). Jesus paid your penalty in full. It is finished
There is no darkness or deep shadow Where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves. - Job 34:22
