The Weak Theory of Creation
The weak theory of creation is a sort-of compromise between the
strong theory and the current scientific views. It claims that the
Earth is rather old, with ages varying between tens of thousands of years to
the scientifically accepted age of 4.6 billion years. Weak theory
proponents claim that God created the Earth and the heavens, but acknowledge
that the evidence supports an old Earth, and not a young one. They argue
that the Earth was created a significant time ago, and that the animals (but
perhaps not the humans) were also created at the same time as we see them
Weak theory believers are opposed to the theory of evolution, which
they see as a nonsense. They are strongly opposed to the notion that humans
and apes share a common ancestor, though they do often acknowledge the evidence
for micro-evolution as detailed on the main page under the evolution
Many of the proponents of this theory will also argue for literal
interpretations of Biblical events, such as the flood of Noah, and claim
that there is significant evidence for them in today's world.
Is this a fair representation? If not then drop me an email. Address below.
