Does Genesis Teach a Young Earth?

No, no it does not. You are correct my friend.

I do believe however that Scriptures [ Genesis’s ][ our baseline ] plain reading, indicates it was done “quickly” [ why not instantly ? ]

We have secular and Biblical evidence that we are [ at least ] ‘recent’ on the stage in this planets history.

Considering the connection to the beginning of the world [ via Genesis ] there is no reason to infer long ages when recent ages will suffice. [Occams razor?]

Scripture paints a Young Earth [ loosely ] and a Young “Man-Kind” clearly.

It’s hard to not connect the dots.
