Accepted. I am a biblical creationist and a Christian. I believe that the universe and nature around us is perfectly consistent with the revelation of the word of the One who spoke it into existence, namely the Bible.

1000% = 66,000

Sorry for the bad math.

Personally, I would consider a difference of 100% or more to be "vastly" different from the proposed age. ie more that 12,000 years old. Heck you could even go to 1000% error and only need to show evidence that the universe is 600,000 years old.

I'll accept this debate on the condition that pro takes on the BoP and provides a definition for "vastly".

This is such a stupid debate, nobody's going to accept the debate unless they are a troll because Pro clearly has the easier/ right side. Humans have been on Earth for at least 200,000 years, the Earth is 4.54 billion years, and the Big Bang if it actually happened, it would've happened about 14 billion years ago. Pro obviously wants an easy win because this is his first debate.

Hey wrong grammar the resolution should have been 'the Universe is older THAN 6000 years' not that 6000 years.
