Transcript of Misconception: False: The Earth is not billions of years Old.

Earth's Era The Evolutionist Perspective on the History of Earth According to the theory of evolution, earth was formed 4.6 billion years ago. Its atmosphere probably contained little free oxygen, but a lot of water vapor and other gases, such as carbon dioxide and nitrogen, and was extremely hot. By 3.9 billion years ago, earth cooled enough for water vapor to condense, allowing millions of years of rain that formed earth's oceans. Evidence Radiometric dating, a method that measures the level of radioactive decay in rocks to determine how old they are has consistently aged moon rocks and meteorites at 4.4 to 4.6 billion years old. The oldest rocks which have been found so far (on the Earth) date to about 3.8 to 3.9 billion years ago (by several radiometric dating methods). Some of these rocks are sedimentary, and include minerals which are themselves as old as 4.1 to 4.2 billion years. Proof For many species the process operates so slowly that it is not observable except over thousands or hundreds of thousands of years -- much too long to witness in a human lifetime. More Evidence The oldest known fossils are approximately 3.5 billion years old, but some scientists have discovered chemical evidence suggesting that life may have begun even earlier, nearly 4 billion years ago. Conclusion In conclusion scientists has proven that the Earth has been here more than thousands of years but billions, because of fossils as well as old rocks and artifacts.
But many have their own theory on how long they belive that the Earth has exists. In my opinion only God knows.
What evidence do they have? Misconception:The earth is not billions of years old what is your opinion, do you agree with the misconception or with what evolution says?? Thank You
