    Why waste 6 days when it is just as easy for Him to bring it into
    existance in 0.00000000000000000000001 nanoseconds or less?

    If "apparent" is defined as "what is observed and supported by empirical
    data" (as opposed to "what is revealed by the Bible"),it sounds like a
    fairly good synonym for methodological naturalism. So what's so
    controversial about teaching this "apparent" old earth, along
    with "apparent" abiogenesis, "apparent" speciation and "apparent" natural
    selection, in science classes?
