The question of the age of the earth has produced heated discussions on Internet debate boards, TV, radio, in classrooms, and in many churches, Christian colleges, and seminaries. Let’s give a little history of where these two basic calculations came from and which worldview is more reasonable. Of course, the Bible doesn’t say explicitly anywhere, “The earth is 6,000 years old.” Good thing it doesn’t; otherwise it would be out of date the following year.
But we wouldn’t expect an all-knowing God to make that kind of a mistake. In essence, He gave us a “birth certificate.” For example, using a personal birth certificate, a person can calculate how old he is at any point. Genesis 1 says that the earth was created on the first day of creation ().

And study as needed, especially since the media continues to report this issue inaccurately.
Dacite lava is too thick to flow very far, so it simply piled up around the vent forming the mountain-like dome, which now sits as a plug over the volcanic orifice.
Why does the lava dome provide an opportunity to test the accuracy of radioisotope dating? First, radioisotope dating methods can be used mainly on volcanic (igneous) rock, such as dacite.
The best "proof" for millions of years of earth history in most people's minds is radioisotope dating. Steven Austin and others from the Institute for Creation Research on a climb into the crater of Mount St. It was one of those experiences that was well worth every exhausting moment!
Helens provides a rare opportunity for putting radioisotope dating to the test.
Though the Samarian and Masoretic texts are much closer, they still have a few differences.
