If you assume that the cosmic ray rate was once 80 times the current level, the hills in Nevada are still over 10,000 years old.If you assumed that space dust accumulated 1,000 times faster in the past, then the moon would still be 5 million years old.
The question sounds strange to many scientists, but it does indeed depend on a particular worldview – a belief – that everyone implicitly assumes. There are countless arguments you may want to make, but which ones are most straightforward?
Fortunately, these errors can been eliminated by testing of multiple samples from a variety of locations.
The origin of bedded iron-ore deposits developed in greenstone belt-hosted (Algoma-type) banded iron formations of the Archean Pilbara Craton has largely been overlooked during the last three decades.
As “public servants” we have the duty to provide them. My answer will be two-fold: physical and metaphysical.
Clearly, science has a lot to say on this topic, as the age and size of the universe has been a matter of intense research during the past hundred years.
Some of the indicators of an old earth are presented below, with typical rebuttals as might be stated by a creation scientist.
Most of the rebuttals take the position that God created the universe less than 10,000 years ago, but made everything from tree rings to dinosaur eggs; from mountains to fossils as if the universe had a multi-billion year history.
This is what everyone needs to understand and address first.
I will first explain how to measure the size of the universe.
The focus will not be on a detailed derivation of the traditional “cosmic distance ladder”, but on simplicity, robustness, and transparency of the argument.
The reader is challenged to follow the argument with as little prior knowledge as possible and to dig deeper where desired.
There are enough long-lived nuclides still around to be still detectable.
