Using Terry Mortenson’s (author of the article we were required to read) Answers in Genesis online article concerning Six Literal Days, here is a basic argument:
My view of the age of the universe is that we live in a young universe. Honestly, I have not thought much about this. I have always been in circles that hold to this view, and I have always just accepted it. However, if I were to have to give an argument for my view, I would follow the points laid out in the online article we all have been required to read by Mortenson. These points are as follows:
I definitely believe Adam and Eve were the first created humans who actually did exist in the Garden of Eden. The reason I would hold to this would be the Biblical evidence, and the necessity of Adam and Even theologically. Biblically speaking, the Old Testament as well as the New Testament treat Adam as a real person. It is a little more difficult to find Adam in the Old Testament, but he is there. Just a few examples: In 1 Chronicles 1:1 he is listed as the head of the genealogy of Israel. It would be strange to list him there if he was just figurative. Deuteronomy 32:8 speaks of the “Sons of Adam.” Other passages that seem to allude to Adam include: Hosea 6:7; Job 31:33; Psalm 82:7; Ecclesiastes 7:29; Ezekiel 28:9.
In the New Testament both Jesus and Paul interpreted Genesis literally. In Matthew 19:4-5, Jesus speaks of God creating male and female in the beginning which references Genesis 1. In 1 Corinthians 11:8-9 and 1 Timothy 2:13-14, Paul uses the Genesis account in his argument treating it as literal or historical.
Theologically, if Adam were not a real person through whom the whole human race was plunged into sin, can one really believe Christ is the second Adam through whom the human race may be saved (Romans 5:12-17).
