Age of Earth

Q. How old is the earth?
A. Well, that depends.

Creationist’s lamentations cry of an earth only 6000 years old, based on a rather literal translation of the days and genealogies in Genesis; suggesting creation occurred as recently as 4000 BC.

Scientific consensus, on the other hand, claims that we inhabit a 4.5 billion year-old celestial body amidst a universe that has had 14 billion birthdays.

That’s a lot of candles.
