A creationist arrives at an age for the universe from Biblical records. He links the fossil record with 'Noah's flood' and asserts there is no conflict between scientific evidence and Biblical creation. He doesn't believe it possible to accept scientific evidence as neutral and mentions Isaac Newton and Richard Dawkins as examples of scientists whom he thinks interpret facts differently, on the basis of their prior beliefs. This creationist argues he doesn't need evidence for faith - the Bible is truth.
