Facts are Facts!
When the facts and evidence contradicts ones beliefs then you need to change your beliefs because facts are facts regardless of what you believe.
-Fact: We evolved from a common ancestor that we share with other great apes.
Evidence: Fossils found in Africa and DNA studies have consistently shown us this and is even part of the basic foundations of biology.
-Fact: The earth is roughly 4.6 billion years old.
Evidence: Radiocarbon dating and Lead Uranium Dating, this process focuses on the ratio between the number of carbon-14 and carbon-12 isotopes and is very reliable. Lead Uranium Dating method relies on two separate decay chains, the uranium series from 238U to 206Pb, with a half-life of 4.47 billion years and the actinium series from 235U to 207Pb, with a half-life of 710 million years. It can be used to date rocks that formed from about 1 million years to over 4.5 billion years ago with routine precisions in the 0.1–1 percent range. There are also very old zircon rock from Australia that are 4.374 billion years old.
-Fact: The universe is roughly 13.4 billion years old.
Evidence: The age of the universe is determined by using two different methods, by studying the oldest objects within the universe and measuring how fast it is expanding.
Saying “I feel something” or handing someone a religious text does not count as fact or evidence.
