Professors Young and Stearley have shown us why the geological evidence for the age of the Earth is persuasive. Their love for the Bible and for the world that God made, their commitment to a biblical worldview, and their patient explanations of scientific principles are exemplary, as is their respect for those Christians with whom they : InterVarsity Press. The Earth is billion years old, give or take a few million years. How do scientists know that? Since there’s no “established in” plaque stuck in a cliff somewhere, geologists deduced the age of the Earth thanks to a handful of radioactive elements.
Most current estimates that are based on a literal interpretation of the book of Genesis in the Bible assume that the belief that the Hebrew word "yom" in Genesis' creation story refers to a 24 hour day. The estimates are typically 6, years ~+mn~ 2, years for . The Blasphemous Geologist Who Rocked Our Understanding of Earth’s Age James Hutton was a leading light of his time, but is rarely talked about today Hutton, as painted by Sir Henry Raeburn in
In its broadest sense, geology is the study of Earth—its interior and its exterior surface, the rocks and other materials that are around us, the processes that have resulted in the formation of those materials, the water that flows over the surface and lies underground, the changes that have taken place over the vastness of geological time. Selected Topics The table below shows age-claims (•) and responses from two perspectives, young earth (YE) and old earth (OE).If you want to study these topics (and many others) in more depth, you can explore four pages — for NOAH'S FLOOD, GEOLOGY, RADIOMETRIC DATING, and ASTRONOMY — that contain plenty of educational resources.

It explains in a simple and straightforward way the evidence and logic that have led scientists to conclude that the Earth and the other parts of the Solar System are not several thousand years old, as some today 3/5(1).
The age of the Earth is estimated to be ± billion years ( × 10 9 years ± 1%). This age may represent the age of the Earth's accretion, or core formation, or of the material from which the Earth formed.
This dating is based on evidence from radiometric age-dating of meteorite material and is consistent with the radiometric ages of the oldest-known terrestrial and lunar samples. Florian Cajori, author of the article “The Age of the Sun and the Earth,” was a historian of science and, especially, of mathematics, and Ray Lankester, whom he quotes, was a.
The geological history of Earth follows the major events in Earth's past based on the geological time scale, a system of chronological measurement based on the study of the planet's rock layers (stratigraphy).Earth formed about billion years ago by accretion from the solar nebula, a disk-shaped mass of dust and gas left over from the formation of the Sun, which also created the rest of.

Capable of lasting hundreds of millions of. Geology (from the Ancient Greek γῆ, gē ("earth") and -λoγία, -logia, ("study of", "discourse")) is an earth science concerned with the solid Earth, the rocks of which it is composed, and the processes by which they change over time.
Geology can also include the study of the solid features of any terrestrial planet or natural satellite such as Mars or the Moon. The geologic time scale (GTS) is a system of chronological dating that relates geological strata (stratigraphy) to is used by geologists, paleontologists, and other Earth scientists to describe the timing and relationships of events that have occurred during Earth's table of geologic time spans, presented here, agree with the nomenclature, dates and standard color codes set.
The authors' presentation is broad enough to fit many parts of the old-earth spectrum of origins beliefs (theistic evolution, Intelligent Design, progressive creationism, etc.). The Bible, Rocks, and Time: Geological Evidence for the Age of the Earth () by Davis A. Young, Ralph Stearley5/5(1).

The history of the age-of-the-earth question is wedded to the history of mining (which, in a sense, is your business today). The problem is, the history of mining didn't exist a century ago.
We did have Georgius Agricola's marvelous book, De Re Metallica, but modern scholars didn't know how to read it. Agricola lived through the early s.The age of the Earth has long been a subject of great interest to scientists from many disciplines, particularly geologists, biologists, physicists and astronomers.
This volume, The Age of the Earth: from BC to ADbrings together contributors from these different subjects, along with historians, to produce a comprehensive review of.Abstract. In this chapter, the formation of the inner silicate planets and the Earth–Moon system is discussed.
It is generally accepted that Earth and the Moon were formed by the giant impact, in which a Martian-size object (one tenth mass of that of the Earth) hit the proto-Earth, creating the Earth–Moon system (an impact angle of 45 degree is the most favorable).
