    No.

    I believe in science.
    I can understand why people believe in creationism, but I simply cannot.

    There's more proven facts backing evolution, than the "the bible said so" for creationism.

    Which is why there is the option "none of the above."

    Otherwise, the only reason why someone would not accept Evolution, is that:

    1. They are largely ignorant of almost everything we know about life sciences.

    or

    2. They are literalistic in their religious beliefs and thus will not accept mainstream science if it seems to contradict their personal religious beliefs.

    or

    3. They have some personal / psychological issue with the thought of having evolved.
    I agree, those who deny evolution are those who refuse to face reality.

    It doesn't implicitly state it. Otherwise, there is not a verse anywhere in scripture that states that the earth is 6500 years old. However, the Biblical Time line for the age of the earth is very clear:

    Beginning with the archeological landmark event of the fall of Jerusalem (which has now been corrected to 588 B.C., instead of 586-587 B.C.) and counting backwards the prophesied number of years between this event and the division of Solomon's kingdom (390 yrs. + 40 yrs., according to Ezekiel 4:4-7), brings us to 1018 B.C.

    From the end of Solomon's 40-year reign to the start of the Temple in the 4th year of his reign takes us back another 37 years to 1055 B.C.

    From the start of Solomon's Temple "in the 480th year" (1 Kings 6:1) back to the Exodus from Egypt (hence 479 years previous) brings us to near 1534 B.C.

    From the Exodus out of Egypt to Abraham's entering Canaan from Haran was exactly 430 years to the day (Gen 12:10/ Exodus 12:40/ Gal 3:17), thus around 1964 B.C.

    Since Abraham entered Canaan at age 75 (Gen 12:4), he was born approximately 2039 B.C.

    From Abraham's birth to Noah's grandson (Shem's son), Arpachshad's birth, 2 years after the Flood started, was 290 years (Gen 11:11-26), this places the onset of the Flood at around 2331 B.C. [definitely 4,300-4,400 years ago].

    The genealogy of Genesis 5:3-32 precludes any gaps due to its tight chronological structure and gives us 1,656 years between Creation and the Flood, thus bringing Creation Week back to near 3987 B.C. or approximately 4000 B.C.

    "Creation Week"?

    Is that like "Shark Week" on the Discover channel?

    I am going to be perfectly honest here.

    I believe in creationism or ID because I believe in the Christian concept of God. The only reason I do not except evolution is because of a lack of evidence above the level of "class" according to the most recent taxonomy classifications. And yet I have no scientific proof of God at all.

    So it is reasonable to ask: Why would I reject scientific theory supported by very good evidence in the case of evolution? Simply put; because of anecdotal evidence and life experience.

    Exactly, thats what I stated earlier. For those that take the Bible literally, then earth is just 6500 years old or so.

    I think that his post was referring to those who take the Bible literally, though one could make the argument that Bible never indicates how long Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden.
