I guess I'm at a loss to understand why it is important that Paul believed in a young earth which he didn't state anywhere in Scripture that I am aware of. I have no doubt whatsoever that Paul understood Genesis 1-3 as a real historical narrative and thus he believed that God created the heavens and earth in the span of 6 24-hour days. Although sheer speculation on my part, I would think that since Paul was personally taught by the LORD Christ Himself over a period of 3 years and since the Son of God dwelt in Christ and made all things (Jh 1:1-3; Col 1:16,17; Heb 1:1-3,10-12; 3:3,4; Rev 4:11), it seems reasonable to me that Paul was told how He, the incarnate Son created the heavens and the earth exactly as the Spirit moved Moses to write the same in Gen 1-3. grin
