Dating of solar system how
Evolutionists believe that both formed spontaneously about 4.5 billion years ago.
Young-earth creationists believe that the earth was formed on Day One and the rest of the solar system and universe on Day Four.
The amount of salt in the oceans is another way to set a limit on the age of the earth’s oceans.
In the evolutionary model, the seas formed over 4 billion years ago.
More salt would have been transported to the seas as the water flowed off of the continents.
Later, reservoirs (like the one that formed Grand Canyon) released their water and dissolved salts into the ocean basins.
Again, this does not fit within a billions-of-years explanation.
Glencoe 395 Despite the evolutionists’ claim that the salinity of the ocean is constant, there is no physical mechanism to support the claim.Although this is one way that evolutionary scientists interpret the age of the earth, there are many other techniques that can be used.Both evolutionists and biblical creationists would agree that the earth and the solar system are about the same age—the actual age of each is where they disagree.Starting with the history of the Bible, we can explain the present conditions of the oceans better than if we start from evolutionary assumptions and uniformitarian principles.Other dating methods put a limit on the age of the earth and the solar system. Evolutionists have created a hypothesis to explain the cyclical nature of the direction of the earth’s magnetic field.
