This Old Earth

The portentously named blog Evidence for God from Science has an interesting thought for the young earth creationists:

Although young earth creationists say that one must put on “biblical glasses,” the Bible says that the reality of creation can be “clearly seen” from what God has made. The earth looks old because it is old. God thought humanity was worth the effort of investing billions of years of His design to adequately prepare the earth for habitation by spiritual being created in His image.
