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.

Everything is falling apart, nothing makes sense anymore. What's happening?

What is happening is that the world has turned away from God. When nations turn away from God, strangely enough, God turns His back on them. We find out what it is like to live without God.

There is only one thing to do... repent, turn to Jesus Christ in obedience. Jesus said:

If you love Me, you will keep My commandments. - John 14:15

This can only be done on an individual basis. Don't look to others turning to God and making things better for you. YOU must repent, turn away from disobedience. Love God! Obey what He says. Read the Bible to find out what He says.

It happens one person at a time, starting with you. Don't put it off today. Turn to Jesus Christ, God who came to earth in human flesh to save us from the penalty we've earned as a result of our disobedience (sin). He will do it! ...

BUT ONLY when you believe this is true and put your trust in Jesus. Trust Jesus today. Repent (turn away from what the world wants and to what God wants).

Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” - Matthew 4:17
