Practically every hypothesis proposed in that video has been disproven. (I can't adamantly say every one, because I'm not familiar with every single one he mentions).

I own a book with that very title "A Biblical Case for an Old Earth" by David Snoke.

comment Why is the number three special?
I heard a sermon on this recently. I didn't actually agree with much of what the sermon said, so I won't provide an actual answer based on it :) However, the speaker did make the point that three is the smallest number of repetitions necessary to form a pattern. This is why so many jokes have "three blondes.." "three lawyers...", etc...

The real reason I have to down-vote this question, though, is that providing a link is not an answer.

@DJClayworth: I don't think saying "see [link]" is useful, when that very link was already mentioned in the question itself.

@Peter Turner: I don't think anyone takes the Bible 100% literally. If they do, then I want that person to post a question asking for a drawing of Solomon's lover. "Your eyes are doves." " I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys." (Wait, is she a literal rose, or a literal lily? And where do dove-eyes fit anatomically on a flower?)

Turning this into "chicken vs. egg" isn't really an answer. I also don't think it's fair to assume that trees were created as trees and not seeds (or some unknown third option), nor the same for Adam. I guess you have answered the question how YOU can reconcile these two. So I can't down vote your answer... but I think it's a very intellectually unsatisfying answer. So I can't upvote it, either.

comment Mental Illness vs. Demon Possession
@iterationx: I'm not an atheist. But telling a story then saying "Is this coincidence?" is not a good answer. It does not convince me, a Christian, of anything, except that you're more interested in telling an exciting story than you are in answering the question.
