So you have taken the time to *prove your belief that the fossil record is a result of Animal/Pant material being covered rapidly:

"Er, what's with this "planting fossils" nonsense? Fossils are the remains of plants or animals (or fish or whatever..) that once lived on the earth, but were rapidly buried at some stage a few thousand years ago."

The geological record, plate tectonics, rates of sedimentary rock deposition, radio carbon dating and other repeatable measurement methods all suggest that fossils are tens / hundreds of millions of years old and the earth is far older. What convinced you that the earth is just a few thousand years old? Was it the Ussher chronology or do you have some other research material? Am interested in case I have been reading the wrong sources.

Do you accept that the Cosmos is ~13.5 billion years old or is it only a few thousand years old like the Earth is?

Of the (roughly) 1000 religious systems around the world today is yours the only one that offers the Truth?

*evidence or argument establishing a fact or the truth of a statement.
