But basically, all Alex's arguments (and some he hasn't put forward) are well refuted at http://www.skepticalscience.com/argument.php.
And for Earth that is 4.5 billion years old (and can theoretically go for another number of billion of years) even 1 million incriments are very small periods of times, nothing to say about mere 1,000 years.
Geological timescales are huge. 1,000 years is insignificant to 4.5 billion years.
Fortunately scientists don't work this way - they need to anticipate and address criticisms.
Unfortunately democracy sometimes does and so we see very little action on this front.
