This is Ken Ham, whose ministry has produced the family friendly Answers Bible Curriculum.


Did you know that the supposed age of the earth, 4.5 billion years, isn’t based on dating the earth? It’s from meteorites!

Because of their evolutionary assumptions, evolutionists believe these meteorites are the same age as the earth. So, if you date one, you’ve got the age of the other.

But there’s a host of unprovable assumptions behind radiometric dating. And it’s been shown to be unreliable for giving correct dates for rocks of known age. So why, then, should we trust this method to give us accurate ages for other rocks?

We already know the age of the earth. It’s because we’ve an eye-witness account from the Creator—God’s Word. The earth and universe are just a few thousand years old.
