Ages of millions of years are all calculated by assuming the rates of change of processes in the past were the same as we observe today—called the principle of uniformitarianism.
If the age calculated from such assumptions disagrees with what they think the age should be, they conclude that their assumptions did not apply in this case, and adjust them accordingly.
Evidence of very recent or even present formation of oil is consistent with a young earth.
However, to draw this conclusion we have to assume that the rate of cratering has been the same in the past as it is now.
And there are now good reasons for thinking that it might have been quite intense in the past, in which case the craters do not indicate an old age at all (see below).
The assumptions behind the evidences presented here cannot be proved, but the fact that such a wide range of different phenomena all much younger ages than are currently generally accepted, provides a strong case for questioning those accepted ages (currently 13.77 billion years for the universe and 4.543 billion years for the solar system).
Also, a number of the evidences, rather than giving any estimate of age, challenge the assumption of slow-and-gradual uniformitarianism, upon which all deep-time dating methods depend.
The Bible claims to be the communication of the only One who witnessed the events of Creation: the Creator himself.
As such, the Bible is the only reliable means of knowing the age of the earth and the cosmos. Thank you guys for putting so much work into this site! Regarding Göbekli Tepe, always check using the search engine.
Always the starting time of the ‘clock’ has to be assumed as well as the way in which the speed of the clock has varied over time.
Further, it has to be assumed that the clock was never disturbed.
See The Universe’s Birth Certificate and Biblical chronogenealogies (technical). Here is an article about it: How does Göbekli Tepe fit with biblical history?
In the end we believe that the Bible will stand vindicated and those who deny its testimony will be confounded. I trust it answers your questions (as much as it is possible to do so with As I see it,just about all the churches in North America are heated either oil or natural gas which has been found by companies using evolutionary concepts.
the age of the earth and the universe, and that includes the ones we have listed here.
