Genesis, 'Prehistoric Man' and the Gap Theory


Many want to know if there was a prehistoric human before Adam. Some want to know if Adam, Eve, Abel, and Seth existed. Others want to know why scientists claim the earth is billions of years old, yet certain 'creationists' deny this. Does the Bible teach that the Earth itself if only about 6000 years old or is there a 'gap' between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2? Is the Bible scientific? What is the truth? Did Adam die the 'day' he ate the forbidden fruit in Genesis 3:6?
