This millions of years time scale is based on radiometric dating of fossil-bearing layers of rock.

This teaching of long ages for life on earth has led some Christians to question and even abandon their belief in the Bible, since a literal reading of Scripture is not consistent with the belief that life has existed on earth for millions of years.

First, this contention creates more problems than it solves.I believe that many educated Christians are especially doubting the Bible because of the supposed evidence from radiometric dating that life has existed on earth for very long periods of time.In fact, I believe that the question of how long life has existed on earth is even more important than the question of whether life was created or evolved.Some claim Genesis in particular, and the Bible in general looks mythical from this standpoint.A full discussion of the topic must therefore include the current scientific challenge to the OE concept.
