In a lecture delivered to the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 1785, and in a book published ten years later, James Hutton placed the origin of Earth at a vastly remote and indefinite time (7). no vestige of a beginning, no prospect of an end." Immanual Kant placed the original creation "a series of millions of years and centuries" into the past (8). In 1778 Comte de Buffon cautiously broke with Hebrew-Christian tradition in proposing that planet Earth had been in existence more than 75,000 years (6).God took great care to include the necessary chronological details of the universe’s creation in six literal days, as well as the unbroken genealogies of mankind from Adam to Jesus.
Because the exact amount of time this accretion process took is not yet known, and the predictions from different accretion models range from a few million up to about 100 million years, the exact age of Earth is difficult to determine.
It is also difficult to determine the exact age of the oldest rocks on Earth, exposed at the surface, as they are aggregates of minerals of possibly different ages.
material and is consistent with the radiometric ages of the oldest-known terrestrial and lunar samples.
Following the development of radiometric age-dating in the early 20th century, measurements of lead in uranium-rich minerals showed that some were in excess of a billion years old.
The marginal entries in most of the older English Bibles allow less than 6000 years since the Creation described in the first chapters of Genesis. C., the first of the "10 ancient kings" (Adam in Genesis 5? In this lecture he set the horizons for geologic time with the classic expression ". Erasmus Darwin, whose grandson wrote The Origin of Species, actively promoted the concept of evolutionary development of organisms over "millions of ages" (9), and the evolutionist, Jean Baptist de Lamarck, at the beginning of the 19th century spoke of time in "millions of years" (10).
Outside the Hebrew-Christian tradition our world generally has been considered to be of vast antiquity. During the development of geological science in the early 19th century the span of geologic time was placed in the three million to 1.6 billion year range (11).God’s word unmistakably teaches a young earth and universe (“the heavens”).God has ensured the accurate recording and preservation of His eyewitness account of the earth’s history, which Jesus Christ endorsed repeatedly during His earthly ministry.Maybe you're right, maybe I should have read the whole thing and maybe I will.But you see, this is the problem with starting off with what you think is a fact and then trying to get the evidence to fit it.Contrary to Scripture, many geologists claim that radiometric “clocks” show rocks to be millions of years old.
