The other day in Target, I saw a dirty, faded Eagles hat for sale. It was brand new, but made to look worn out and beaten up. People like that kind of look. That made me think of how jeans today are often made that way too (like this photo). They actually sell jeans that look like that, at full price!
So if we like our hats and our jeans worn, is it possible that God also made the Earth to look worn? And that's why people dispute about whether the Earth is 'New' or 'Old'?
Of course, I'm not a scientist, and the age of the earth is not an area of theological study that I have spent much time contemplating.
Just sharing one of my musings from Target...I know, I need to get a life.
But does anyone else have any thoughts on this?
