Explaining scientific understanding to a creationist

Got this email:   My biggest question for you guys is… How do you believe that we (and by we, I mean the entire earth and all of its contents) are here? Of course Christians, like myself, believe in the 7 Days of Creation. I’m watching your television show (your showdown with Ray Comfort) and …
