A good post over at Blog & Mablog on the age of the earth & related matters.

Lying around somewhere I have a half-completed article on this subject which I will one day get around to finishing and putting on the site.

Doug is irenic as always but I still think that Gen 3 and Romans 5 can only be used to categorically prove human death originated with the Fall for that is the context of those passages. 

That for me is the theological non-negotiable.

Romans 8:22 remains a good one for the contrary position but after that it seems to me to be largely a scientific issue where most of us are simply not qualified to comment.

Not that this ever stops us!
