Age of the Universe

Evidence for Young Universe

Here are fourteen natural phenomena which conflict with the evolutionary idea that the universe is billions of years old. The maximum possible ages given are always much less than the required evolutionary ages, while the biblical age (6,000 years) always fits comfortably within the maximum possible ages.

From the Bible we can already know the big bang idea is wrong: the Word of God in Genesis 1 says the earth was created before the stars.

What would a “young universe” look like?
