The bible and dating older men
Or are we trusting God’s perfectly accurate eyewitness account of the past, including the creation of the world, Noah’s global flood, and the age of the earth?Radiometric dating was the culminating factor that led to the belief in billions of years for earth history.
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.
It confirms that the Bible’s history is giving us the true age of the creation.
Today, secular geologists will allow some catastrophic events into their thinking as an explanation for what they see in the rocks.
This would destroy any evidence of alleged millions of years anyway.
So the rock layers can theoretically represent the evidence of either millions of years or a global flood, but not both.
Under the entry “creation,” Young’s Analytical Concordance of the Bible9 lists William Hales’s accumulation of dates of creation from many cultures, and in most cases Hales says which authority gave the date. Historian Bill Cooper’s research in After the Flood provides intriguing dates from several ancient cultures.10 The first is that of the Anglo-Saxons, whose history has 5,200 years from creation to Christ, according to the Laud and Parker Chronicles. for creation, which is surprisingly close to Ussher and Jones!
