What is the Age of the Earth?

In short, it depends on who you ask. Answers range from as little as 4,000 years to as much as 4.5 billion years old. The age of the earth is a topic of great controversy with people aligned into two basic camps. It is important to note, that as with most things, there are people with beliefs that bridge the two sides, but dividing the beliefs into two disparate camps will help in a cursory discussion of the age of the earth. The two differ basically on whether religion plays a role in the analysis, and with that we get two groups — the traditional scientists and the creationists. On the one hand, we have the traditional scientists who base the age of the earth on scientific proofs and theories. They point to things like carbon dating, evolution, radiometric dating, and the big bang theory. This group, sometimes referred to as the secular-, evolution- or science-based group, generally believe that the earth is about 4.5 billion years old. What the traditional scientists or secularists

” Age of Earth: Education or Indoctrination? Public schools in the U.S. view the “Age of Earth” query as a separation of Church and State issue. They feel compelled to push Old Earth as a means to remove God from public education. This is a contradiction, as an atheistic worldview is no less “religious” than a Creationist worldview. The immediate result from such an effort is censorship of Young Earth evidence. The long-term result is that our students are indoctrinated, not educated. A child in the U.S. public school system is not learning both theories of origins. As such, Evolution is being taught as scientific fact. Here are some examples of evidence not reaching today’s youth: • There are approximately 5 times the Natural Chronometers indicating a Young Earth than those indicating an Old Earth. Today’s student is not aware of ANY Natural Chronometers indicating a Young Earth, and is therefore ignorant of 80% of the total data. • All data is interpreted through presuppositions. • W

How old is the earth?” Answer: Given the fact that, according to the Bible, Adam was created on the sixth day of our planets existence, we can determine a biblically-based, approximate age for the earth by looking at the chronological details of the human race. This assumes that the Genesis account is accurate, that the six days of creation were literal 24-hour periods, and that there were no ambiguous gaps in the chronology of Genesis. The genealogies listed in Genesis chapters 5 and 11 provide the age at which Adam and his descendants each fathered the next generation in a successive ancestral line from Adam to Abraham. By determining where Abraham fits into history chronologically and adding up the ages provided in Genesis 5 and 11, it becomes apparent that the Bible teaches the earth to be about 6000 years old, give or take a few hundred years. What about the billions of years accepted by most scientists today and taught in the vast majority of our academic institutions? This age i
