U. S. Geological Society Misleads Students & Teachers


The following is a quote from


It all sounds very precise and technical but they leave out a key fact. It is impossible to calculate the age of a rock from such information because we need to know the radioactive content of the rock when it formed as well as the entire history of the rock until the sample was collected. In order to calculate a date the geologist first has to assume the geological history of the rock. In other words, all radioactive ages quoted are "guesses", in that they are based on assumptions about the past.

The article is also wrong about its description of the dating of Grand Canyon.

Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona In order to determine the age of an individual layer, a geologist must collect a sample of that layer and take it back to the lab. The geologist uses precise laboratory machines to analyze the relative abundance of radioactive atoms and atoms that form as a result of radioactive decay. Finally, the geologist can calculate the rock's age. This calculation requires knowledge of math, physics, and chemistry! Note how the oldest rocks in the Grand Canyon are on the bottom and the youngest rocks are on the top.

Once again it all sounds very precise, technical and complicated. It seems designed to impress teachers and school children. But it is not true. The layers in the wall of Grand Canyon are sedimentary layers and sedimentary layers are not dated by radioactive methods, which are applied to igneous rocks. Rather, the sedimentary layers in Grand Canyon were "dated" using their contained fossil assemblages.

This is yet another example of the typical circular logic: We know how old the fossils are because we know how old we want them to be to satisfy the demands of the story of Evolutions and we know how old the rocks are because of the fossils that are in them and we know how old the fossils are because of the rocks they are in. Once they have established the age of the rocks using the story of evolution and the fossils, they then hide that level of analysis and go to simple circular reasoning. Since people like point out the circular reasoning, the U. S. Geological Society takes it one step further and lies about how they have developed the "age of the rocks." This is known as a bold-faced lie.


Many Christians have lost their faith because of speculations regarding the age of the earth. These speculations usually put death before sin, eliminate the world-wide flood and replace it with millions of years, and eliminate the creation and replace it with billions of years. If death is before sin, then sin does not cause death. If sin does not cause death, that destroys the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We are not dogmatically claiming to know that the Earth is 6,000 years old. We know that God created the Heavens and the Earth in six days and we know the number of generations between Adam and Christ. That's about it. Even though a plain reading of Scripture seems to indicate a young Earth; even though there is zero observed evidence and only circular reasoning and speculations that support old Earth stories, we can't even deny the possibility that God could have done something that Scripture doesn't hint at and that has left no scientific evidence. It is possible. It just is not worth the time to think about it.

There is plenty of evidence for a young Earth and a recent creation:
