That the Earth was at one time one solid piece of land without islands and continents.
In Gen. 1:9-13 we read that the Earth came forth as one land and the waters were one body of water. In Gen. 10:25 and 1 Chron. 1:19 we read that in the days of Peleg "was the earth divided," that is split into continents and islands. The Hebrew word for "divided is palag, and is translated "divide" Ps. 55:9 and "divided" in the above passages and in Job 38:25; Dan. 2:41. It literally means to separate or split. If the Earth was thus separated in the days of Peleg, then it was one Earth or body of land before that time. This is the reason that various people are in the New Earth the land will again become one body and no longer will there be large oceans of waters as we have now Rev. 21:1.

That the Earth is more than 6,000 years old and that there were inhabitants on the Earth before Adam.
This is True, there have been already 6,172 years from Adam to 1948. Not only this, but the Bible teaches that there was a social system on the Earth that was destroyed by a great flood long before Adam. This flood is picture in Gen. 1:2 as covering the Earth, before the six days in which Adam was created. It is also mentioned in Ps. 104:5-9. Peter speaks of it as "the world [Greek, kosmos, social order] that then was, being overflowed with water perished: but the heavens and the earth, which are now [since the six days of restoration], by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire [ to be purified resulting in] . . . a new heaves and new earth" 2 Pet. 3:4-13.
The cause of the first flood before Adam was the fall of Lucifer and the rebellion against God of one third of His own angels, along with the people who lived on the Earth over whom Satan ruled. That Satan ruled the Earth and led an invasion into Heaven to cast God out, is clear in Isa. 14:12-14; Ezek. 28:11-17; Luke 10:18; 1 Tim. 3:6. The devil was defeated and the Earth was then cursed and placed under water as in Gen. 1:2; Ps. 104:5-9; 2 Pet. 3:5-7; All life was totally destroyed, including birds, men, vegetation, and all cities were destroyed in which the pre-Adamites lived Jer. 4:23-23. In the restoration of the Earth in six days, as in Gen. 1:3-2:25, God told Adam to "replenish" the Earth. Adam and Eve were the first inhabitants of this present creation.

That Heaven and the planets are inhabited.
This clear from many Scriptures: "Rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them . . . he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God to blaspheme . . . them that dwell in heaven" Rev. 12:12; 13:6. look also at Col. 1:16-18; Rom. 1:20; 1 Cor. 15:35-50.

That we are at the very end of this age.
There are many signs now coming to pass that prove we are near the end of this age. Many prophecies are also coming to pass which prove this fact. One of the most notable signs of the end of this age is the return of the Jews to their own land, as predicted by the prophets Jer. 30:18-24; 31:1-40; 32:37-44; Ezek. 37; Hosea 2:4, 5. This is now taking place and no one can dispute this fact. This and Matt. 24:37-39; 1 Tim. 4; 2 Tim. 3; 2 Pet. 3:1-3 and other passages prove we are living at the very end of this age.

That there will not be a general judgment for both the righteous and the wicked.
There will be a judgment for the righteous before the Millennium and one for the wicked after the Millennium. Therefore, contrary to common opinion, there will be no general judgment for both classes at the same time and place. Only the wicked dead will be judged at the final judgment as is clear in Rev. 20:7-15.

then sin entered the world before Adam and Eve, and there was death before Adam and Eve, and the Bible is built on errors, omissions and downright lies.

You can't have sin entering by one man, and punishment for sin as death if sin and death happened on earth before Adam

It was Lucifer and the angels that followed him trying to dethrone God and all at that point and time were sons of God not of flesh.

John 5:28-29
28Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming when all who are in their graves will hear His voice.
29and come out—those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned.

hour?

That there is more than paradise mentioned in Scripture.
One paradise is mentioned as a place where Christ and the penitent thief went, which was in the lower parts of the Earth Lk. 23:43; Mt. 12:40; Eph. 4:7-11; Ps. 16:10. Another paradise is mentioned as being in the third Heaven 2 Cor. 12:1-3. Then the garden of Eden is generally understood to be a paradise Gen. 2:8-25; 3:1-19.

There is also a paradise mentioned in Revelation 2:7 where the Tree of Life is located.

That infant baptism is not taught in Scripture,
There is not one word mentions any such practice. On the contrary, it is clear from Scripture that baptism is only after men have repented and have been born again by the Spirit of God. Infants are not lose due to the fact that they are not old enough to be responsible for their sins and therefore could not repent of known sins. They therefore cannot be fit candidates for water baptism which is a symbol of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and a testimony to the world that the individual has been saved from a life of sin and that he is walking in newness of life. Only personal disciples and followers of Jesus Christ were commanded to be Baptized Mt. 28:19, 20; Mk. 16:15, 6; Acts 2:38, 39.

makes no difference. Death is death whether it is human death, animal death or angelic being death.

The Bible plainly says that sin entered the world thru Adam, and death entered because of that sin

Which brings us back to the topic of "what is death?" I agree with your definition.
Yet if their was no death, just think how overpopulated the
Garden would eventually get with plants and animals.

That there is no end of the world taught in Scripture
Concerning "the end of the world" The Greek word is aion and means age. There will be no end to this age, but not an end of the world. The common theory held by men that the world is coming to and end is based upon a wrong understanding of this Greek word. The Earth abideth forever, we are told in Eccl. 1:4; Ps. 104:5 and other passages. There will be eternal generations of natural people on the Earth for resurrected man tom rule.

That Adam did die the day that he sinned. Physical and spiritual death are the results of being cut off from eternal life by God. Man did die spiritually the same day he sinned, for spiritual death is separation from God and unless he becomes reconciled to God again he will be eternally separated from God in the lake of fire, which is the second death. Thus Adam did die the day he sinned..
