Many scientists say geological findings and other natural phenomena prove the earth is approximately 4.5 billion years old. On the other hand, young earth creationism argues that the biblical record shows that the earth is only 6,000-10,000 years old. Does science contradict Scripture? If so, which is right?

Dr. David K. Bernard examines the claims of both modern science and the opening chapters of the Book of Genesis and offers his thoughts on how Christians should interpret the Creation account and what the Bible says about the natural world.
