Scientists say that a star goes super nova in our galaxy roughly every 26 years. They can see how many have gone super nova by the remnants left. They have counted the past super novas and have found there have been approximately 250 in the life of our galaxy. 26 years x 250 = 6,500 years - This is the approximate age of the Earth as written in the Bible.

The blog for a the website will obviously have to be a single forum set aside for it.

Forumotion supply a feature to allow one to turn a forum into a reasonable looking blog.

1)  Activating the blog style forums:

a) Go to Admin - Modules - Blogs
b) Activate Blogs - YES

2)  Create your blog forum.

a) Go to Admin - General - Categories & Forums
b) Click to create a forum and in the drop down menu at the top select "Blog"

Note: I would suggest also putting it in a category of it's own as well.

3)  Security settings:

Once you have created the forum go back in and set the security settings using the expanded view.

Settings should be chosen whereby visitors can reply to posts but not create new posts or polls.   I personally allow guests to reply to posts as well because not everyone wants to join a message board simply to reply to a blog post.  But this would be your personal choice.
