How does that make any sense whatsoever? There’s literally fossils of modern humans dated way before that.
The theory of science relies on consistency however when spontaneous events occur such as Noah's flood, or the tower of babel story we must take into account that these dating methods may not be accurate

The place of Jerusalem is also a very Holy Site in which a annual miracle occurs at the place Jesus rose from the dead where a Holy light appears from the tomb and turns into a fire lighting the candles of the believers where the uncreated light does not burn. An explanation link is provided down below as well as video footage on youtube just search up: Holy Fire Jerusalem 1995 or 2021 etc

The Holy Fire is fraudulent and at best is procured naturally.

In his book, the journalist Dimitris Alikakos presents an interview with the skeuophylax Archbishop Isidoros of the Patriarchate of Jerusalem, in which the former admits that the "Sleepless Candle", which he, himself, puts into the Church of the Holy Sepulchre during the morning of the Holy Saturday, is ignited by him with a lighter.[1]:75[29][30] The former (1984-1988) skeuophylax Archbishop Nikiforos makes the same acknowledgement, except that he was using matches.[1]:89 In the same book, Archbishop Gerason Theofanis states that the Holy Fire does not light up in a miraculous, but in a natural way, and it is then blessed by the Patriarch. He adds: "we deceive the believers letting them believe that it is a miracle. This is unacceptable, and does not reflect well on us"

To accept christianity you have to reject the idea we came from apes
Nope, one to accept Christianity you don't have to reject that idea, becuase that is not a core doctrine.
Secondly, that is not the actual claim of science anyways, so kind of easy to reject.

The claim is that apes and humans shared a common ancestor. The science isn't out on that, and in the last 15 years, scientific consensus is yet again moving away from that still unproven hypothesis.

For all reading this that not all Christians accept young earth creationism or the idea that the Earth was 6025 or so years old.
Flood geology has long been discredited as unable to account for the physical evidence (and this is not by just some grumpy atheists, Christians who firmly hold to the Bible, have also rejected it).

As a Christian and a mathematician, while I might question things like species-to-species evolution (which isn't actually what Darwin was on about anyways), the age of the Earth being old is no issue for me.

And on whether humans came from apes or even shared a common ancestor with chimps. The jury is still out on that one.

Your first mistake was using Wikipedia haha, second of all who are you quoting because that is all untrue, they do not deceive the believers, orthodox are very strict with their beliefs and anything to likes of that will get the patriarch excommunicated, here is real evidence to the Holy Fire from the current Patriarch of Jerusalem who has performed these miracles for many years.


Second of all their have been many occurrences that have been documents since 400 AD of this miraculous light not burning the same uncreated light as the that appeared with Moses in the burning bush, the pillar of fire and at Pentacost, please read the article linked down below and watch the video from my previous post, I will link it again down below.

Now this question is more to address your faith, we believe Jesus resurrected on the third day overcoming death, the same Man who healed the blind man with the mud from the ground John 9, the same Man who breathed on his disciples to give the Holy Spirit John 20 ,ponder on that, does that sound familiar?

When God made man from the dust of the earth Genesis 2 and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life.

Think about the act of creation in multiplying loaves and fishes or transforming water into fine wine.

God is closer than we think.
