Evidence.
BBC - History - Timelines
Ok for starters we have human remains and evidence of culture and stucture building back and beyond 8300BCE at the very least (almost 10.5 thousand years ago, Neolithic). Even if the universe was only 6000years old, with the amount of survivals we have for ancient cultures, then we have absolutly NO time available for the bible events to take place IN.


Dendrochronology has produced a continuious record of treerings that strech back over 10 thousand years.


Speed of light is the distance traveled by light in a year. If the universe was only 6000 years old we would not be able to see anything of the universe more than 6K light years away. We can, by many hundreds of thousands of light years, and thus the universe has to be far, far older than 6K years.


We have fosils, we have geological structure...


Actually there is so much evidence, much of it mutually supportive I urge you to go find it. It shouldnt be too hard. the book store and library shelves should contain plenty (in the science section, not the religion section)
