There is no scientific debate on the age of the earth. I mean, its established pretty definitively, its at least 4.5 billion years old
BS. There is no such thing as settled science. Period. Radiometric dating techniques have all sorts of issues and assumptions related to them which make the age determination our best guess (if our assumptions happen to be valid, which we have no way of knowing).
The precise number will oscillate around a bit and is debatable, but it is EXCEEDINGLY unlikely it will ever change to less than 4 billion years, or more than 5 billion years, and you’ll NEVER see it change to 4.5 million years, 450,000 years, or...6,000 years.
“...Radiometric dating techniques have all sorts of issues and assumptions related to them which make the age determination our best guess...”
I agree, Radio Isotopes have been proven to be altered by contamination from heat & water. No accurate readings are possible. Case in point: Mount Saint Helens —
This comes from an established Geologist.
Other posters are right, it is an attempt to mix up conservative base. it'll work.
