I do find it interesting that the author felt compelled to back pedal about the age of the earth in the face of massive empirical evidence that the earth is over 6,000 years old but still tries to maintain that modern humans were only created 6,000 years ago. OTOH acknowledging that other people predated Adam and Eve would poke a bigger hole in the story than tacitly acknowledging that the earth was not really made in 6 days.

That article is the type that definitely works best when preaching to a choir that wants to hold their cherished beliefs.

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
