How old is the universe? 13.8 billion years? Not if you look at the evidence.
Let's take a trip into deep space where we'll find spiral galaxies. If fact we live in a spiral galaxy. We can see that the stars in our galaxy move at different speeds. The outer stars move slower than the inner stars. The result is that the galaxy should wind up and become a blob of stars in just a few hundred million years. Yet our galaxy is supposed to be over 13 billions years old, and it still has spiral arms! They should be there! Our galaxy is more than 13 billion years old... spiral arms disappear in a couple of hundred million years. The numbers are not adding up. The observable evidence is telling us our galaxy, and the universe, has to be young. It's not billions of years old.
So am I saying our galaxy is 100 million (or more) years old? No. Our Milky Way galaxy should have fallen apart 200 to 300 million years ago. That's a long time, but it does not mean our galaxy has been around for that long. It's just the upper limit. The Milky Way is in good condition and appears fairly new... so 6,000 years is not an unreasonable age. BUT, it is certainly not 13+ BILLION years old.
When we look out to the "edges of the universe," what do we see? Galaxies, but the furthest ones are too far away for us to see their shape. However, what is puzzling is that, when we look at galaxies that far away we are supposedly looking back 13.3 billion years in time. That's how long it would take the light from the farthest observed galaxy to reach us based on evolutionary thinking. This means we are seeing that furthest galaxy as it was just 500 million years after the big bang. To be 13 billion light years away from us in 13.8 billion years means that galaxy must be moving away from us at an average of 96% of the speed of light. The numbers don't make sense.

Most people choose the wide road. It's the way everyone else is going. It's wide and it's an easy road, so it must be the right road. But it's the wrong way!
Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it. - Matthew 7:13
The wide road, and wide gate is our choice based what feels good. But our feelings (our heart) are deceptive.
The heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick; - Jeremiah 17:9
Christianity... meaning belief in Jesus Christ... is not a blind faith driven by emotions. It is an informed faith, based on historical facts and truth.
The truth is that we are law breakers (sinners) in need of a Savior from the just wrath of God. That Savior is Jesus Christ.
Trusting Jesus is not the easy way. It is the narrow road, through a narrow gate, and it can be difficult at times. But it is the right way to go. And it is the only way to have eternal life in Christ Jesus.
Trust Jesus. Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved. - Acts 16:31
