Hi Everyone :)
So studying my course is not as easy as I assumed, and I don't just mean academically. Every day my beliefs are being strained and challenged and... basically, it's hurting my head!
One thing that's really bothering me at the moment is the years that the Bible dates back human life (just under 10 thousand years i think) in comparison with traces of human life dating back millions of years ! Sorry I don't have exact numbers.. I suppose I can do some research if anyone needs.
The Catholics have been confronted with this evidence and they, among other churches, simply said that the Old Testament is not literal. They have a belief that all the stories were written to tell tales that teach important lessons. Now, I'm pretty sure we don't believe that.. And I know that evidence has been found in favour of certain biblical events such as Noah's ark.
I'm really hoping there's a really good, satisfactory explanation for this, or else I think my brain will burst.
Any help would be greatly appreciated !
+ God Bless !
