Just checking, I just remember learning that most dinosaurs died off 65 billion years ago... I should have specified dinosaurs such as the T-rex.

My vote was for 10,000+ based on dinosaurs, lol...

For those who think the world is less than or slightly less than 10k years old.

Im ok with you guys thinking that since it most likely came from religion and I am all for religion. All I ask in return is to no push your religion on to me.

I think it is altogether possible based on biblical geneology and the amount of time spent before the Fall of Man, that the Created Universe is less than 25,000 years old.
I believe there is strong evidence for a Bounded Universe, not as much for an unbounded one as many astronomers would lead us to believe.
I believe the Universe was formed, not by Cosmic Evolution, but by the Word of God.
I also believe that Man is desperately wicked, and does not seek after God. I believe Man will always look for a way to separate himself from a Just and Righteous God to avoid being shown guilty before such a Being.
I also believe those who believe this are a minority these days, as men would rather have their ears tickled by the newest ideas of "science" while explaining away evidence of a young created Earth.

I hope this doesn't turn into a religion vs. science debate, because that is simply not what is at stake.
The only curve that I could throw to support any biblical dating would be......

We have NO idea how long A&E wondered the garden before they F'ed up and got kicked out.

I voted 10K+++

T Rex died out 65 million years ago. The Big Bang was only 14 billion years ago. You don't need dinosaurs to get an Earth older than 10k years. There are petroglyphs in Australia that are 27k years old, so people have been around practicing religion for at least that long.

I'm not trying to turn this religious but there something behind what you saying. 2 Peter 3:8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. My take on this is, time is all about the solar cycles. If you believe in God, he made all these thing that make up time: Earth, Moon and Sun. So to say that God doesn't understand 24 hours are in a day, he made everything that you use to come up with your understanding of time.

so not billions of years but very possible thousands.

Personally I think the verse refers to what time would be like in Heaven vs Earth. Take what you will from it.
