Quoting thetrollcat:

Quoting Anonymous:

If you read the bible, it clearly states the world is around 4,000 years old.


lol, I do hope they were being facetious.

Of course not. The dating of lives in the Bible is not properly understood. I believe it is still a mystery to us.

Age of the Earth

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Earth as seen from Apollo 17

The age of the Earth is 4.54 ± 0.05 billion years (4.54 × 109 years ± 1%).[1][2][3] This age is based on evidence from radiometric age dating of meteorite material and is consistent with the ages of the oldest-known terrestrial and lunar samples. Following the scientific revolution and the development of radiometric age dating, measurements of lead in uranium-rich mineralsshowed that some were in excess of a billion years old.[4]

The oldest such minerals analyzed to date – small crystals of zircon from the Jack Hills of Western Australia – are at least 4.404 billion years old.[5][6][7] Comparing the mass and luminosity of the Sun to the magnitudes of other stars, it appears that the solar system cannot be much older than those rocks. Ca-Al-rich inclusions (inclusions rich in calcium and aluminium) – the oldest known solid constituents within meteorites that are formed within the solar system – are 4.567 billion years old,[8][9] giving an age for the solar system and an upper limit for the age of Earth.

It is hypothesised that the accretion of Earth began soon after the formation of the Ca-Al-rich inclusions and the meteorites. Because the exact accretion time of Earth is not yet known, and the predictions from different accretion models range from a few millions 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.

I believe alot of christians believe this as well, but according to an anonymous in another post, she claims that CHRISTIANS believe the earth is only 4,000 years old. I just dont buy it.

 If you go off of the creationalist standpoint, as in the generations from Adam and Eve and so forth, it is somewhere around 4,000-6,000 years old.
That's a certain type of christian though, not all.

I do not believe that and I am a Christian.  Whoever said that is starting drama and does not like Christians.

Stop blowing their minds with rational hard science sassy. They might start speaking in tongues.

Many do. It is their belief. Many believe divorce iforbidden, dinosaurs never existed, they will populate other worlds, wives must be beaten regularly, and so on. Christian is a broad broad term.
