Do creationists belive in fossils?

Do creationists believe there are things called fossils and those fossils are made through certain conditions that take millions of years?

If they do believe fossils exists do they not believe they are millions of years old or do they think it's some secret atheist scheme to piss them off?

If they do believe they exist then how can you state the earth is 6000 years old?

    Yes, they believe in fossils. However, they don't see it as evidence for evolution nor an old Earth.

    "If they do believe they exist then how can you state the earth is 6000 years old?"

    Because that's what they've been taught to believe.

    I've met creationists who think that fossils are only 6000 years old and that people who say otherwise are part of some kind of scientific conspiracy designed to discredit the idea of god, and still others who believe that the instruments used to measure such things are being operated honestly, but that Satan planted the fossils in order to fool humanity. I know one creationist who believes in the fossil record because he actually took high school level geology courses, and he thinks that the 6000 year mark is simply idiocy and an arbitrary measurement devised by a 12th century quack who misunderstood scripture. But he still believes that everything was made by a god.

    Creationists believe everything about fossils that you do, except that it takes millions of years for a part of a plant or animal to fossilize. There is no scientific evidence that it takes this long-as it is not possible to observe a millions-of-years experiment.

    The creationist explanation for fossils largely depends upon the worldwide flood, involving millions of plants and animals being buried under many layers of sedimentary rock laid down by the flood waters.

    some do, some do no longer some creationist do no longer have confidence the fossil information - there is in all probability a sweat save someplace in the international churning out the fossil information for disreputable palaeontologists to bury and then dig up back at a ideal time, the sweat save is in all probability around the corner to the only that creates religious artifacts for religious archaeologists to dig up, despite if we won't be able to low fee the thought they're one in a similar save which seems distinctive artifacts on call for. In all seriousness data itself is open to interpretation and human beings interpret the data in accordance to their very own preconceived innovations. Take as an occasion sea shells on dazzling of a mountain. A geologist will seem at that and say, "right that is data of plate tectonics, see this mountain became as quickly as area of the sea mattress." A creationist will view the right same data and say, "seem right that is data of Noah's flood." all of it finally boils right down to theory no count how lots or little data is around.

    SURE THERE ARE FOSSILS ,,

    AND THE ARGUMENT ON HOW OLD THE WORLD IS ,,IS IRRELEVANT ,,

    SAYING ITS 50 BILLION YRS. OR 6000 YRS . OLD DOES NOT PROVE OR DISPROVE ANYTHING ,,,, CARBON TESTING DOES NOT REALLY PROVE THE AGE OF ANYTHING BEYOND A RECORD OF TIME ,,,,NOT ABSOLUTELY ,, IT CAN'T ,, NOT FOR SURE !!

    THE VALIDITY OF GODS WORD IS THROUGH GODS INSTRUCTIONS OF HIS PLAN OF REDEMPTION FOR HIS OBEDIENT BELIEVER ,,,

    THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO HAVE PROOF OF GODS TRUTH BESIDES SEEING HIS PROOF IN THE CREATION !!

    GODS TRUTH IS JOHN 14;6 THEN JOHN 14;21

    ACTUALLY THE ARGUMENT COULD BE MADE BY SOME CREATIONIST THAT THE EARTH TOOK AT LEAST 6000 YRS EVEN TO MAKE ,,,WHEN ONE CONSIDERS WHAT 2nd PETER 3;8 SAYS ,, SO BY FINDING FOSSILS TO SAY THAT THE EARTH IS ONLY 6000 YRS DOES NOT DISPROVE THE BIBLE

    Er... yes!

    They see fossils as evidence of life that once lived on earth, now buried in water-laid sedementary rock (which is where virtually all fossils are found). This could be the result of a global flood (since said rock is found globally!!)

    There's a stand up routine by Lewis Black about creationists that this question brings to mind.

    "Fossils, fossils, fossils! I WIN!!!"

    You have blindly believed that it takes fossils millions of years to be created. Carbon dating is actually a theory, just like evolution.

    Yes, and I know the earth is not 6000 years old. But do evolutionists just like to tick ppl off and expect the world to kiss their *** and feet to get their respect?
