It is an interesting question... I'm wondering how technical and scientific you want to get with the answers, since the topic is pretty wide and complex – clami219 Apr 13 '14 at 12:55
Science emcompasses a lot of territory, like astronomy and geology. You can get an overview of scientific perspectives here: – Steve Apr 13 '14 at 13:39
This question has two possible answers. The most obvious one, touted by the entire scientific community, and even a large and growing number of YECs, is "There is none." The second possible answer is far too broad to provide here, as it would be a laundry list of theories and models which attempt to fit a young earth into a (slightly or severely) adjusted scientific understanding. Theories that fit the latter category are easily found by google. The former answer is more one of philosophy. – Flimzy Apr 13 '14 at 15:40
@clami219 what I need is basic summary in point form and an explanantion of those points in a satisfactory manner. I want it to be VERY scientific of course with many scientific sources. I am not sure what you mean by technical. – Tony Jays Apr 13 '14 at 15:46
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about science and scientific evidence, not about Christianity. – Dan Apr 21 '14 at 16:09
