"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." Genesis 1:1
There seems to be a descrepancy between the Bible and Science because scientists say the world is millions of years old, yet many Christian's believe it is only about six thousand years old. Science is right! But the bible is not wrong. There could be eons between verse 1 and verse 2 of Genesis 1. Verse 2 actually should read "and the earth became without form and void". The rest of Genesis 1 is not the story of the creation of the earth, but the story of the re-creation.
