I was a theistic evolutionist for a while, in high school, before I turned my life over to Jesus. When family members suggested I do the things to officially join the church so I could take communion with them I realized I wasn't sure I even believed the Bible. Thus I began to read through the Bible. By the time I was entering UNM for geology, I was taking the Bible seriously. I still respected the "evidence" for evolution, but saw no agreement between it and scripture. After my first semester I got saved, and felt I had to choose; either the Bible was true or evolution was true. I didn't know the verse that says "let God be true and every man a liar," but that became my working hypothesis for origins.

I soon began to find literature by creationists. I had been willing to commit intellectual suicide, but found that the body of "knowledge" causing the problem was not even real science. It was a kind of mental cancer blinding me to much evidence, and causing me to forget that my science teacher in seventh grade had taught us that a phenomenon could not become a true "fact of science" unless testified to as observed repeatedly by multiple qualified observers. None of us had asked, regarding origins millions or billions of years ago, "Who were the qualified observers?"

Now, with word about polonium radiohalos and radiogenic helium in granitic rocks, instantaneous sedimentary layering of Mount St. Helens eruption deposits, carbon 14 in everything, and more, even if I discounted the Bible for some reason I would question the deep ages.

And after over forty years of Bible reading, I don't see any reason to discount it.
