How can some people believe the Earth is only 10,000 years old (or less)?
This assertion is contradicted by biology, physics, chemistry, geoscience, astronomy, and archaeology. 10,000 years is not enough time to account for the current amount of genetic variation in humans. If all humans were descended from two individuals that lived less than 10,000 years ago, it would require an impossibly high rate of mutation to reach humanity's current level of genetic diversity.

Huh? That’s nothing. In your religion, you believe everyone came from a rock that was rained on for millions o’ years, which came from nothing exploding 13.978 billion years ago.

“If someone doesn’t value evidence, what evidence are you going to provide that proves they should value evidence?
If someone doesn’t value logic, what logical argument would you invoke to prove they should value logic?”
― Sam Harris
"Many believers admit that nothing could change their mind about their religious beliefs, which means they are no longer seekers of truth and have become, in essence, mindless religious robots. Religion consistently and effectively discourages introspection and inquiry. That isn't by accident."-- Bob Peters
