How old is earth?

Report as

Nope. The Earth was part of the Solar System when it formed 4.6 BILLION years ago. It got knocked around somewhat when a planetoid collided with it soon after that, but the result was our moon, without which none of us would be here. The whole Universe only goes back 13.7 billion years, so some of those other guesstimates are a little out.... Check out the live links your Ask.com Editors have left you at the top right-hand corner of this page. Those numbers were worked out from dating the oldest rocks ever found on the Earth, moon and cometary fragments.

Raventherobot is using information twenty centuries old - the latest reliable results are about twenty monhs old. Out-of-date information is one thing - blind prejudice is quite another. Don't they teach you anything at school? Where do you think the dinosaurs came from if they died out 150 MILLION years ago and you insist the world is only five thousand years old? I would laugh if it wasn't so serious....

I said 5000 is what Christians would say.
