Quote# 47951

[Christians: what are your thoughts on the age of the earth?]


The earth is no older than 6 to 10 thousand years. All sources of dating that we have are flawed.

Anyone who believes that this planet has survived millions of years is really brainwashed

Meh, the ever whiny "carbon-dating doesn't work, waaa!" gang. Newsflash fundietards, we use different dating methods for different things. SCIENCE determined the limitations of carbon dating, not religion.

Holy crap! Your positively stellar debating skills have undone the years of hypnotism and brainwashing I underwent in the public school system! I am finally free!

Take me Lord Jesus! Make me yours!

Now, now, Mortok. You should know better than to kneel to someone who doesn't respect hard limits or safe-words.

Ah, you're not getting laid. Have you tried a lonely hearts ad?

Then how are you so sure that the earth is 6000 years old?

Waiting for God

Whilst walking in some woods at the weekend I picked up a stone. Just an ordinary stone covered in mud. I cleaned the mud from the stone and lo and behold the stone was smooth and rounded. How has this happened I wondered? How has a stone, which looks like it came out of the sea, all weathered and eroded, just like those on the beach, ended up in a wood outside of Stoke-on-Trent in England?

Maybe God smoothed it? maybe he gathered up billions of stones and put them into a huge tumbler, then, because he's God, he wound the tumbler impossibly fast and made all these stones smooth in a matter of seconds.

Maybe Noah threw the stone over-board when he was sailing to the poles looking for Polar bears and wooly Mammoths (Obviously he was unable to find the Mammoths).

Then I got to thinking about all the oil, miles under-ground, the fossils, the gems stones, rock-strata's, cave painting etc etc etc etc etc etc etc

Twat.

If all sources of dating are flawed, then how do you know the earth is "6 to 10 thousand years" old?

I think thoughts were asked for, not talking points.

"All sources of dating that we have are flawed."

So why are they all flawed by the same amount and all in the same direction?

Radiocarbon isotopes have halflives of 5558 years, so they can only be used to test the ages of organic material that is no older than 60,000 years.

The ages of rocks are determined by radiological dating of the ratios between radioactive elements and their decay products, like uranium/lead. By testing the ages of meteorites, we know that the material in the solar system is 4.5 billion years old, and that includes the earth.

That Christians are too stupid or too lazy to find this out for themselves amazes me.

To 'Pastor Biker', the last (and fundiest) answerer:

Your attempts to copy and paste vast amounts of crap from (YEC) www.earthage.org would be less obvious if your 'post' did not end in mid-sentence...

The earth is no older than 6 to 10 thousand years.

The earth will be 6,011 years old next month. Repent, heretic!

The earth is no older than 6 to 10 thousand years. All sources of dating that we have are flawed.

And we know this because...you don't agree with it.

If all sources of dating we have are flawed, prove that it is not even older! Please do so with actual proof and not some story told by people who thought the sun was a chariot.

The earth is no older than 6 to 10 thousand years. All sources of dating that we have are flawed.

I'd bet a dollar that the reason most Creationists believe this guff is due to the fact that they have no idea how those numbers were arrived at. Bishop Ussher added up all the years listed in the generational verses in the Bible and arrived at the figure of 6,000 years. If I remember correctly, the precise date for the creation of the Earth is sometime in October.

"All sources of dating that we have are flawed."

Because they don't give the answer you've already decided is correct.
