This is the Acceptance round. You will have to SOMEHOW argue that the Bible is not accurate. Good luck.

By calculating the genealogy in the Bible, from Adam to Christ, the Earth is approximately 4,000 years old [1]. From Christ to present, the total age of the Earth from Creation to now is 6,000 years old.

Using Radioactive decay, scientists estimate that the Earth is about 4.56 billions years old [2]. This approach is preferable to the Bible because the science is falsifiable and transparent. Anyone can criticize the methods or results of the research using evidence, which has not successfully occurred.

Even a skeptic of the radioactive decay model can empirically observe the fossil record, and the fact that it is much older than 6,000 years old.

Therefore, I have proven that in one instance the Bible is not historically accurate. Therefore the Bible is not historically accurate. Pro can only contest this point since pro did not open argumentation last round.
