“Old” Earth age estimates are based on “clocks” that today are moving at extremely slow rates. For example, for many years coral growth rates were thought to be very slow, implying that coral reefs are hundreds of thousands of years old. More accurate measurements under ideal growth conditions reveal that even the largest coral formation could be as young as 3,400 years old. In fact, most straightforward dating methods also indicate a very young earth. Here are a few examples:

1. The development of the total population of our planet could be reached in less than 4,000 years based on all known historical population growth rates.

2. The known rate of decay of the earth's magnetic field indicates that it could not possibly be older than 10,000 years.

3. The rim of Niagra Falls is wearing back at a known rate so that it could not be much older than 5,000 years.

4. The entire Mississippi River Delta can easily be accounted for in 5,000 years.

5. Volcanism alone is spewing out so much lava and water that all the water in the oceans and the entire crust of the earth would have been created in 1/10 the time given by evolution for the age of the earth.

In addition to these, there are many more examples which indicate that the earth has not been here as long as we have been led to believe.
