To all naysayers who believe in any Old Earth theories (such as the radical idea that the earth could now be 6010 years old or older) I remind you that D&C does not stand for "Delusions & Crap" but for "Doctrine and Covenants" :) With that in mind I shall share a sacred Doctrine verse with you.
"We are to understand that it contains the revealed will, mysteries, and the works of God; the hidden things of his economy concerning this earth during the seven thousand years of its continuance, or its temporal existence."https://www.lds.org/scriptures/dc-testament/dc/77.6
The Millenium is going to be 1000 years when Jesus reigns personally on the earth with world government headquarters in Zion in western Missouri. Well that day obviously hasn't started yet. Thus its safe to assume that the earth could be no older than at least 5998 years right now. Well if City Creek Mall was closed and Utah emptied out of the Saints then it could be possibly 5999 years old but no older :) The only possible way to suppose the earth is any older is to suppose that the Doctrine is false. But that's unthinkable because the beloved Correlation program has well-taught me to never allow Doubts to enter my mind so I got to keep a protective bubble over my mind at all times to shut out any doubting ideas.
Those poor pathetic exmormons who open themselves up to ideas like the earth being 6010 years or older. This is not a matter of speculation. Its doctrine. That's why its in the D&C :)
