|1. What is biblical Christianity?|
As opposed to non-Biblical Christianity? I do not think there is such a thing.
2. If the world is only a few thousand years old, why did God fake the ages of the rocks?
This illustrates the blasphemy of Young Earth Creationism (YEC). There is no evidence that God actually inspired the Bible, but it stands to reason that if any sort of God created the universe, we can learn about Him by studying His Creation. YECs claiming that we can learn more about God by studing some man-made book rather than something, the universe itself, that man could not have made is an absurdity, quite simply. Science depends on the physical and chemical laws being consistent over time and space, without exception. If that is not so, then reality itself becomes meaningless.
I'm not FL, but I'd like a shot at answering those earlier questions by nmgirl:
If you need a man-made book to beleive in a God who is said to have created the universe, of what value is your faith? You might as well worship an idol.
