Again, God was playing farmer by planting the garden and letting it grow (Genesis 2:9).

Having a proper understanding of biblical genealogies is a prerequisite to attempting to address the Genesis genealogies.

Although many Christians claim this makes the days exactly 24-hours in length, the Hebrew word translated "day" in English actually has three literal translations; the daylight portion of a 24-hour day, a 24-hour day, and a long, unspecified period of time (as in "day of the dinosaurs").

The Hebrew word translated "evening" also means "sunset," "night" or "ending of the day." The Hebrew word translated "morning" also means "sunrise," "coming of light," "beginning of the day," or "dawning," with possible metaphoric usage.

Next, God had Adam give names to "all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air" (Genesis ).

Of course, even assuming the method was valid, such an exact date is not possible from the genealogies of the Bible (Ussher assumed all the years the patriarchs lived were exactly 365.25 days long and that they all died the day before their next birthday).There are a number of other assumptions implicit in the calculation.As indicated earlier, the Bible does not fix the age of the earth, contrary to the claims of Answers in Genesis.



In the above chart, years are displayed in scientific notation i.e. 1 x 10 6 = 1 million; 1 x 10 9 = 1 billion, etc. All of the above isotopes are readily produced in nuclear reactors, so there is every reason to believe that they were formed along with stable isotopes, in roughly the same abundance as nearby stable isotopes of similar.… continue reading »

Potassium-argon dating, method of determining the time of origin of rocks by measuring the ratio of radioactive argon to radioactive potassium in the rock. This dating method is based upon the decay of radioactive potassium-40 to radioactive argon-40 in minerals and rocks; potassium-40 also decays… continue reading »
