The Age of the Earth: Helium In Rocks

How old is the earth? Billions of years or just thousands of years?

Helium results from radioactive decay, and quickly leaks out of rocks. Yet rocks contain large amounts of helium. All of the helium should have leaked out in less than 100,000 years. This means rocks dated to be over a billion years old are actually less than 100,000 years old.

Not only does helium in rocks provide evidence the earth is young, the lack of helium in the atmosphere provides additional evidence. Approximately 67 grams of helium escape from rocks and enter the atmosphere every second, it would have taken only about two million years to build up the amount of helium we observe in the atmosphere today-- assuming the atmosphere started with zero helium. Of course, it is unlikely that the earth started with zero helium. But, even with that assumption this gives a maximum age of the earth of two million years, which is not even close to the claimed age for the earth of 4.54 billion years.

headlights coming

What you believe does not determine reality nor truth. That would make you god. But you ARE NOT god. You don't control the universe. You cannot change reality. Let's try an experiment. At about midnight stand in the middle of the road just around a corner where it is hard to be seen... at night, wearing all black. When headlights start lighting up the curve, just believe that whatever is coming does not exist. Stand firm, if you don't believe a vehicle is coming, then nothing is coming. You are perfectly safe... until reality hits.

You are now standing before Jesus. You are dead. It's judgment day. You don't want to believe it's Jesus and you will be judged. But it is. That's reality.

Judgment only takes a moment, the verdict is obvious, and you know it is correct. You are guilty. You've lied, stolen and sexually lusted after others (Matthew 5:28)... you have disobeyed God. Trusting Jesus is the only answer, but it's too late. You had your last chance just before you died.

You know it's no use to protest, but still you scream out, 'I didn't know!'

But you did know. All of creation declared God's glory, His invisible attributes, and His power. You have no excuse. You willingly rejected Jesus Christ (God).

Is this you? Are you saying, 'Hell isn't so bad, I'll be with my friends.' You know that's not true. There are no friends in hell. No beer... not even water to cool your lips. There is NOTHING good in hell.

So I beg you, consider these words. Trust Jesus as having paid your penalty for every way you've have rejected God. Trust Jeus to save you from hell and bring you into the presense of God.

Trust Jesus. Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved. - Acts 16:31
