2 Peter 3:" But, you must not forget this one thing,dear friends. A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day." Now, back to the question, with that in mind, do we really know how long that God took to create the earth? God is correct, scientists are not correct, they are fallible, mortal men. God is omnipotent, omniscient, and He never lies.
