Oh! There is a tree that is older than 6000 years old!

Yes, there are.

Old Tjikko is one. it is (according to scientists) 9550 year old. Jorukka Oak and Pando are even older, always according to scientists.

Let’s give them the benefit of doubt. I doubt those trees are that old, but let’s say they are.

Would this prove Genesis wrong? Would this shake our faith to the point of becoming unbelievers?

Of course not. But let’s expand the answer a little bit.

1) If this was true, and this would contradict Genesis, it would not mean God does not exist. It would mean the Bible is wrong, and we should be looking for another faith, one that states the Earth is older. But there is a problem with this logic, that goes this way:
a) Atheist do not believe in any God
b) We believe in one God
c) Atheist prove our belief to be wrong in one point
d) There is no other God provided by Atheists
e) Atheists cannot prove God does not exist
f) As there is no other God, we should continue to believe in our God, and wait for an explanation of the supposed wrong point in the Bible.

2) And this is the KEY: when God created Adam , he was not a baby. Scriptures call him a man, not a baby.
If Adam was created by God as a man of, let’s say, 20 years old, could He create a tree of 5000 years old? That tree would be now 11000 thousands years old. And this would explain those trees.

Isn’t that an easy explanation for the age of the trees? Same with rocks. God wanted the Earth to look like it was billions years old, knowing that an infant Earth would be not a good environment for humans, the creation He favored the most.

Again, why should we complicate things more? Why should we be looking for a big conspiracy to create a fake God and impose it to the masses, while a simply, elegant and coherent answer could be found between the pages of the Bible?

As usual, Jesus wins. Check mate, atheists!
