    I might be able to speak with some authority on this because my Father who got a degree in Geology (3.97 average grade) was a creationist.

    He would use it in his preachers office as a paper weight. If asked he would go into about a forty five minute lecture on the failings of the geological dating system (rules of uniformity) to explain how far off science is. No doubt there would be references to continent drift rates, acceleration curves, cosmic storms and catastrophic events that are known to have happened but are ignored by those who guess at how old the earth is.

    Now if you happened to have been present for the event, no doubt you would have heard a rebuttal because the time between the sixth day of creation and the fall is not recorded and the argument that "day" should have been translated "age" by my younger brother who happens to be a Bible translator.

    I will leave you to guess about my Bible believing brother who just happens to be a research Biologist.

    Probably make some BS statement about that fossil being from Noah's flood.

    People deny evolution because they haven't figured out that the Genesis passage was written to people who were herding sheep 3000 years ago. These sheep herders did not know about quantum relativity, string theory, Higg's boson or time frames of billions of years. The purpose of the Genesis account is about who (God) made the Universe, not about when or how He made it.

      Ok... I have an extremely large one in my fossil and mineral collection. So what's your point?

    He would say thank you and know deep in his soul that it is only about 5000 years old and radiometric dating is wrong

    He would insist it was either fake or <6000 years old.

    He would just doubt the age of that trilobite.
