From there, we can begin to calculate the age of the earth.
Let’s do a rough calculation to show how this works.
This would destroy any evidence of alleged millions of years anyway.
But there is growing scientific evidence that radiometric dating methods are completely unreliable.15 Christians who have felt compelled to accept the millions of years as fact and try to fit them into the Bible need to become aware of this evidence.
Cultures throughout the world have kept track of history as well.
From a biblical perspective, we would expect the dates given for creation of the earth to align more closely to the biblical date than billions of years.
Though the Samarian and Masoretic texts are much closer, they still have a few differences.
See table 3.8 Using data from table 2 (excluding the Septuagint calculations and including Jones and Ussher), the average date of the creation of the earth is 4045 B. This still yields an average of about 6,000 years for the age of the earth.
