Is it possible that God made the world seem much older than 6000 years , to shame the bad ?

You're not very smart . To compare a religious belief system against another is idiotic . It would be like comparing the number of deities in acient greece against those in Christianity today and then try to use this to refute the idea of a trinity . How can one prove you wrong ? Not only Christians but a whole. Both are taken on faith and have no concrete eveidence . EDIT : Understood . However, there were people int eh Middle East before this. The Jewish faith , was born in the Middle East and has a belief that God created the world about 6 -10K years. People then spread from there . Since a Christian has its roots in the Jewish faith , believe that creation took place within a period of time. The world was destroyed by a flood leaving Noah and his family to resolve the Middle East ( which has been widely execpted and the birthplace of humanity ) . People then spread from there around the same time the Indian is known to be installed in India . This then does not say anything about what Hindus knew about creation unless you can also provide details on how they came to India . I do not deny that Hindus existed about 5500BC , however I challenge his belief of billions of years in Hindu cosmology . You are Hindus nor provide any evidence of it , but uses faith to except . Therefore can not be used as evidence to discredit faith young earth creationist .

The answer to the question at hand can be very long , because you have been asked very important phenomenon on Earth . As for Earth Science Geology is considered even young science . As for earthquake prediction have no scientific prediction as death , science has written death will occur in a given place and time. I myself study of the predictions of the earth and found the total probability

Who said the earth was only 6,000 years old? His intention to be 4.5 billion years!

Was not assign opium used during those times ? It is the Word of God and not of men . Men have been trying to do for God , think of God from the beginning. The devil told Adam and Eve that if she ate the forbidden fruit they would become like God , become gods . The man has been believing this lie since. Let God be true and every man a liar .

Well, Hinduism can be pretty fantastical in its numbers but, with all that, they are still closer than the insultingly stupid age of 6000 years for the earth.

I always thought that God put Hindus on earth to test my faith. I also think I have a better chance of winning the lottery if I pick my lucky numbers.

For those who believe that is as young as 6000 to a million year old, large numbers are beyond comprehension. Even for Greeks, any number bigger than 10,000 was infinite.

Hindu estimates maybe not be 100% accurate, but they are not 100% wrong like that of xianity.
