(Evolution) Earth-DNA?
If Science can date the Earth or any part of the Universe or even come close, that would assume there was a created beginning, right?
Or, that maybe the Earth or the matter therein would have eternally existed.
in which case the dating of the Earth can not be determined, right?
No beating around the bush here, I believe God Is the Creator.
I just don't understand how Evolutionists would be able to explain dating the Earth and not being able to explain DNA and yet still think that somehow ALL OF THIS JUST HAPPENED.
Don't ask me how I know God is real because I could go on telling you how he has changed and effected my life. I have Faith in my God.
I don't however have faith in Evolution. But I am curious how one could explain these things and have faith in it.
I'm no expert but will reaserch any "Real, Adult-Like" answers given to better understand.
(no gabage answers please-you will not be paid attention)

You are under the misconception that evolution is proof there is no God. Evolution is actually agnostic...without reference to or against a deity.

Young-Earth believers were the ones who started the problem. They started pushing the agenda that evolution was wrong, evil, and nasty because it went against the literal words of the Bible. Evolution (and the other areas of science you made reference to that have nothing to do with evolution) is merely the scientific observation.

Don't let some screwball use your faith against you and convince you that its either atheism and evolution or faith. Pope John Paul II had faith, and understood evolution..

Define garbage answers.

If garbage answers are those you disagree with, then there's no point in providing you with a sensible answer.

You don't want garbage answers but you provide an absolute garbage question? I've seldom read such tripe.

Different "beginnings"; Earth: 4.7 bya; Universe: 13.7 bya.
No... no eternal existence; so your point is *wrong*."explain dating the Earth and not being able to explain DNA " counfounds me... what are you talking about?
You have not made it clear what your problems are, so:
Google: evolution;
Google: Big Bang. ... (Wiki has good entries for both.)
(If you tell us your specific issues, we could better respond.)

No, you won't.
If you wanted to do research, you could have easily done it by typing in "evolution" or "theory of evolution" into google. It's not rocket science.

You just wanted to rant about why you don't accept evolution and post the usual strawmen about "happening by chance" and "God is real" and "having faith in evolution" and all sorts of other nonsense. It's readily apparent that you don't know the first thing about evolution or science in general... you have allowed religious belief to cloud your judgment.

Do some homework of your own first, and THEN step up to the plate with "Real, Adult-like" questions.

The question that you are asking has been answered over and over again. It's your own fault you refuse to understand it.

Genesis is about the creation and fall of man.
If God really thought it was that important, He would have went into more detail of how He created the universe.
Genesis focuses on the creation of man, and how sin entered into the world.

The earth has existed a finite, known period of time; the universe as well, but longer. The "matter therein" has existed infinitely, though at some point as energy, as matter and energy are fungible.

I can look at a painting, and know when it was painted, but it is more difficult knowing when the paint was made, or when the plants that were used to make the paint were grown, or when the light left the sun to make the plant grow....

Evolution has nothing to do with the beginning of the Earth. Evolution started with the first living cells.
