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.

Jesus does not promise to take away all your troubles. He promises those will get worse. But, Jesus does promise to free you from worry and anxiety.

How does that work?

The Bible says, Be anxious for nothing... (Philippians 4:6) Why? When you trust Jesus, no matter what happens in this life, you will spend eternity with God... and that is VERY GOOD.

And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. - Matthew 10:28

Who can destroy your body and soul? Only God. (Not Satan) However, God does not send you to hell, you do that when you disobey God. However, God created hell, aka. the lake of fire, the second death (Revelation 21:8).

You can be rescued. Jesus Christ (God) died on the cross to save all those who believe in Him... all those who trust Him to pay their just penalty for disobeying God.

Trust in Jesus and you'll know your time on earth is like a wisp of smoke that vanishes in the wind. Trust that Jesus did pay YOUR penalty for sin. Repent. Turn away from disobeying God.

Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved. (Acts 16:31) and there will no longer be a reason for worry or anxiety.
