Hugh Ross vs. Jason Lisle Debate: Thousands or Billions?

In this ‘in-house’ debate about the non-salvation issue of the age of creation, astrophysicist Hugh Ross (old earth) and astrophysicist Jason Lisle (young earth) present their best case for old earth and young earth perspectives. This is an interesting look at some of the key points to consider on both sides of the issue. The debate was respectful and well-moderated on KKLA. Wintery Knight has provided his synopsis/recap of the discussion here.
