Billions of years ? Or a few thousand years ?

Many folks, both secular and Christian, believe in in the billions of years theory of evolution as taught in most schools and in the secular media.

Others try to 'compromise' the Biblical teachings with the 'evolutionary world views' and believe in such ideas as 'day age' theory, 'gap theory' and numerous other 'theories' which propose long long periods of time instead of the Biblical literal 7 Day Creation event which occurred only a few thousand years ago.

But does it matter whether the world and everything was created billions of years ago vs. only a short time ago as the Bible teaches?

Well, for those who believe in the long ages of millions and millions of years, regardless of which theory they espouse, this illustration from Answers In Genesis succinctly summarizes the 'results' of their belief.
