It was about 6000 years ago, no? I wouldn't even think to ask if it weren't for a sermon I heard last Sunday. A guest pastor at the church I'm attending for the summer (it's Congregational) was preaching about how scientific discoveries prove the existence of God, and he mentioned that the world was created through the Big Bang billions of years ago. I was pretty surprised to hear that said right out in a Congregational Church. What do you guys think?
