Omphalism
The Omphalos hypothesis is the argument that God created the world recently (in the last ten thousand years, in keeping with Flood geology), but complete with signs of great age. It was named after the title of an 1857 book, Omphalos by Philip Henry Gosse, in which Gosse argued that in order for the world to be "functional", God must have created the Earth with mountains and canyons, trees with growth rings, Adam and Eve with hair, fingernails, and navels (omphalos is Greek for "navel"), and that therefore no evidence that we can see of the presumed age of the earth and universe can be taken as reliable. The idea saw some revival in the 20th century by some creationists, who extended the argument to light that appears to originate in far-off stars and galaxies (although other creationists reject this explanation). Many creationists believe that Adam and Eve had no navels, and that the trees in the Garden of Eden had no growth rings.

Skeptic's Play: When is Theistic Evolution acceptable?
If you thought I would go another Darwin Day without any mention of the Evo/Creo wars, you were wrong! This has little to do with Darwin himself, but I hope you enjoy it anyway. When you first join a social networking site (ie Facebook or Myspace), one thing that takes a little getting used to is how friendship is treated in such a black and white manner.
