    And it ignores the pressing question of beginnings. But really, anyone using science to invalidate God is clearly confusing domains.

    From my experience in the religious anti-science movement, there's simply not enough consideration as to how science and the professions based on it actually work.
    In the case of geology, its not like they go to school, place their right hands on "origin of the species" and swear a solemn oath on the long age of the universe.
    Its more a case of making lifetimes worth of observations across several lifetimes that can only be explained with a certain model of age.
    These models, when applied, yield very specific and practical results. Every time you turn your ignition key, you're validating mainstream geological thought on a ludicrously old earth that has had life on it for more than 6000 years. That is "if we believe oil is formed *this* way, under these conditions, we should find it *here*". Drill hole... up gushes oil.
