In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth billions of years ago this earth age was created approximately 12,000 years ago Adam and Eve or treated about 6000 years ago man in women the races were created before Adam and Eve and God said it was good so there you go God created the earth in the beginning of time billions of years ago he created man just a short time ago that's what the Bible says not what man says
Based on a variety of disparate and trusted methods of measurement, science has found the universe to be about 14 billion years old and the Earth to be about 4.6 billion years old. As our knowledge increases and existing dating methods are refined and new dating methods are discovered, these ages will gradually become more and more precise.
Young-earth proponents (biblical age of the earth and universe of about 6,000 years) Old-earth proponents (secular age of the earth of about 4.5 billion years and a universe about 14 billion years old). Creationists ultimately date the earth using the chronology of the Bible. This is because they believe that this is an accurate eyewitness account of world history, which can be shown to be consistent with much data.
Agree that the earth is billions of years old. Everybody is just guessing because mans historical records go back only 6,000 years at the most. When we go back beyond this time, the scientific dates are all we have. But others have a interesting question: Was all physical creation accomplished in just six days sometime within the past 6,000 to 10,000 years? The facts disagree with such a conclusion;? #1. Light from the Andromeda nebula can be seen on a clear night in the northern hemisphere. It takes about 2,000,000 years for that light to reach the earth, indicating the the UNIVERSE must be at least millions if not billions of years old. #2. End products of radioactive decay in rocks in the earth testify that some rock formations have not been in disturbed for billions of years. (Genesis 1:3-31) Is not discussing the original creation of matter or of the heavenly bodies. It describes the preparation of the already existing earth for human habitation. This included creation of the basic kinds of vegetation, marine life, flying creatures, land animals, and the first human pair. All of this is said to have been done within a period of six (days) However, the Hebrew word translated (day) has a variety of meanings, including 'a long time; the time covering an extraordinary event.' The term allows for the thought that each "day" could have been thousands of years in length.
