Theological, historical and scientific reasons for the universal interest in the age of the earth question are explored. Underlying issues relating to creation and evolution are exposed and analyzed. Interviews with pastors, seminary professors, teachers at Christian schools as well as interviews with laymen have shown that one's position on the age of the earth can be used to predict a person's approach to creation and his interpretation of Genesis.
