Does the Bible Say the Earth is 6000 Years Old?

What does the Bible actually say about the age of the Earth? If Genesis 1 says God created the earth in 6 days, who are we to say he didn't? But what if that is the wrong question to ask? What if the creation story in Genesis is telling us a different story? A story not about "What?" and "How?" but "Who?" and "Why?" Phil Vischer takes us through the history of the Creationism debate and helps us understand how the Ancient Israelites would have thought about creation and why order and function matter more in Genesis 1 than material and matter.
