a little fallible

"Recently, one of our associates sat down with a highly respected world-class Hebrew scholar and asked him this question: “If you started with the Bible alone, without considering any outside influences whatsoever, could you ever come up with millions or billions of years of history for the Earth and universe?” The answer from this scholar? “Absolutely not!”
Let’s be honest. Take out your Bible and look through it. You can’t find any hint at all for millions or billions of years."


"Why would any Christian ... take man’s fallible dating methods (and there are hundreds to choose from!) and use them to impose an idea on the infallible Word of God? Christians who accept billions of years are in essence saying that man’s word is infallible, but God’s Word is fallible!  ... They have essentially sent out the message that man, by himself, independent of revelation, can determine truth and impose this on God’s Word. Once this “door” has been opened regarding Genesis, ultimately it can happen with the rest of the Bible."  
And we see this happening, don't we???  If the Bible is a little fallible concerning creation ... it's probably a little fallible concerning morality too ... 
These two quotes are from a 1998 article by Ken Ham in which he points out that the debate isn't really old earth versus new earth ... but whether or not the Bible is infallible.
