This is primarily due to the fact that adherents to Mormonism claim that the movement is a "restoration" of the earliest Christian and Judaic doctrines.Mormonism is considered to have branched from Christianity itself but differs on their status of God and their beliefs.

The thing is, as with many other masculine insecurities, this is predominantly in our heads. Worse, I’m the shortest of all my friends who range from 5’1o” on the short side, to 6’7″ on the tall side.

But my height has only been as much of a problem as I’d let it be.

This is the crucial point: it is claimed by some that an old earth supports evolutionary theory and by implication removes the need for biblical creation.

Some claim Genesis in particular, and the Bible in general looks mythical from this standpoint.

As these changes have occurred, organisms have evolved, and remnants of some have been preserved as fossils.

A fossil can be studied to determine what kind of organism it represents, how the organism lived, and how it was preserved.

However, by itself a fossil has little meaning unless it is placed within some context.

The age of the fossil must be determined so it can be compared to other fossil species from the same time period.

This age is obtained from radiometric dating and is assumed by evolutionists to provide a sufficiently long time-frame for Darwinian evolution.

And OE Christians (theistic evolutionists) see no problem with this dating whilst still accepting biblical creation, see Radiometric Dating - A Christian Perspective.

Over the years, I’ve dated and slept with women of all heights, ranging from 5’1″ to six-foot tall amazons.
