Does the Bible teach an Old Universe?

I believe Old Earth Creationists erroneously adopt a material naturalistic framework to address the age of Creation when they should submit their minds to the interpretation most closely aligned to Scripture.
That is, the view that we have a normatively material and natural young Creation actively superintended by an immaterial and supernatural Creator is the most consistently Biblical. In fact, if you believe in the propositions of an old universe and an old earth, one might say you are much more of a Deist than a Theist.
My argument is that we should start with Scripture and end with Scripture and contextualize the interpretation of natural revelation within the framework that most closely aligns to how God has revealed Himself. The church started with an YEC framework based on Scripture, we should be highly skeptical of anything that breaks that view.
