1The age of the earth Empty The age of the earth Sat Oct 17, 2015 7:04 pm



Bryan Bissell 

The age of the earth is 4.6 billion years old and that's "true"? Not even close to factual . Atheists have proposed a myriad of dates and it keeps changing every few years. And you have the audacity to think you are correct NOW, when all of them claimed they were "correct" and now everyone agrees they were wrong?

In fact, ~200 methods point to a young earth while only 40 highly unstable ones point to an old earth. To support the 40 versus the 200 is no different from supporting geocentrism over heliocentrism in 2015. LITERALLY.

Short history:

In 1860, some geologists claimed the age of the earth was ~3 million years old based on the thickness of total sedimentary record is divided by average sedimentation rates (in mm/yr) (forgetting the flood and other catastrophes).

In 1910, Some geologists claimed the age of the earth was about 1.6 billion years old.

1893 Charles D. Walcott claimed the earth was 55 million years old 

In 1897, Lord Kelvin claimed the earth should be 24-40 million years based (based on assuming that the Earth was originally molten, cooling rates and the laws of thermodynamics) 

In 1899, John Joly (Irish) calculated the age to be ~90-100 million years based on rates of delivery of salt to the ocean. 

In 1907, Boltwood clamed the earth was 1.64 billion years baed on based on Uranium-Lead.

1911 Arthur Holmes published uranium/lead ages ranging from 340 million years (a Carboniferous sample), to 1,640 million years (a Precambrian sample).

1921 Henry Russell calculates a maximum chemical age of eight billion years for the Earth's crust, based on estimates of its total uranium and lead content. 

1927 Arthur Holmes suggests that the age of the Earth is between 1.6 and 3 billion years. 

1953b F.G. Houtermans uses Patterson's (1953) data and the lead isotopic ratios of young terrestrial sediments, to compute a rough age for the Earth of 4.5 ± 0.3 billion years. 

1956 Clair C. Patterson publishes an isochron age for the solar system (and therefore the Earth) of 4.55 ± 0.07 billion years. 

Atheists have said the world is a myriad of ages in the past. 

In actual fact, this is true:
Actually, 90 percent of the methods that have been used to estimate the age of the earth point to an age far less than the billions of years asserted by evolutionists. 

A few of them:

Red blood cells and hemoglobin have been found in some (unfossilized!) dinosaur bone. But these could not last more than a few thousand years—certainly not the 65 million years from when evolutionists think the last dinosaur lived.14

The earth’s magnetic field has been decaying so fast that it couldn’t be more than about 10,000 years old. Rapid reversals during the flood year and fluctuations shortly after just caused the field energy to drop even faster.15

Helium is pouring into the atmosphere from radioactive decay, but not much is escaping. But the total amount in the atmosphere is only 1/2000 of that expected if the atmosphere were really billions of years old. This helium originally escaped from rocks. This happens quite fast, yet so much helium is still in some rocks that it couldn’t have had time to escape—certainly not billions of years.16

A supernova is an explosion of a massive star—the explosion is so bright that it briefly outshines the rest of the galaxy. The supernova remnants (SNRs) should keep expanding for hundreds of thousands of years, according to the physical equations. Yet there are no very old, widely expanded (Stage 3) SNRs, and few moderately old (Stage 2) ones in our galaxy, the Milky Way, or in its satellite galaxies, the Magellanic clouds. This is just what we would expect if these galaxies had not existed long enough for wide expansion.17

Salt is pouring into the sea much faster than it is escaping. The sea is not nearly salty enough for this to have been happening for billions of years. Even granting generous assumptions to evolutionists, the seas could not be more than 62 million years old—far younger than the billions of years believed by evolutionists. Again, this indicates a maximum age, not the actual age.19
