a Young World After All!!
Chronology is a branch of history. As such it is governed by the laws which determine the validity of the results reached by the process of scientific investigation and historical inquiry. It is also a branch of applied mathematics, and mathematics (unlike the fantasy of evolution) is an exact science. The earth is thousands . . . not billions or even millions of years old.
The evolutionist's "god" is time and chance. Given enough time . . . anything is possible....Microbes turn into monkeys and monkeys into men. Unfortunately for them, the Bible does not give them a billionth of the time for their miracles of transformation to happen.
Even carbon 14 dating is wrong for events before the great Flood because the Bible says that the earth was a completely different place back them. Men lived to be almost 1,000 years old, animals were vegetarians, and there was no rain or vast oceans.
All of the major events in the Old Testament are dated, as a matter of fact, the first 11 chapters of Genesis are mostly genealogy and chronology:
Leading Bible Dates from the Old Testament
The above chart is taken for the book Chronology of the Old Testament © 1913 by Rev. Martin Antsey M.A. It differs from all other chronologies in that the dates are based on Scripture alone. It might be 1 or 2 years off - not millions like the evolutionists!!
And so we have a complete count of the years from the first Adam to the Last Adam - the Lord Jesus Christ. From the beginning of time to the fullness of time. From creation to redemption. To find out the age of the world from this point is very simple:
Determining the age of the world
According to the Bible chronology, the world was 6,000 years old about 1958.
