If, as evolutionists say, the earth formed as a hot molten mass, it should have cooled to its present temperature in far less than 4.5 billion years. Evolutionists believe that radioactive decay accounts for the still-elevated temperature of the earth's core. Yet estimates of the amount of heat created by radioactive decay cannot account for the heat present in the earth's core–unless the earth is much younger than assumed. The high temperature at the core of the earth testifies to a young earth. Lord Kelvin used this argument to show that evolutionary geologists of his day were wrong about the age of the earth and his conclusions are still accurate today. In spite of this type of evidence, evolutionists continue to claim that the earth is about 4.5 billion years old.

The vast majority of scientific dating methods indicate that the earth is quite young. Since the earth was created as a fully formed and functional planet, its core temperature would have been very high–similar to today–from the very beginning. The fact that the core of the earth is still quite hot confirms what Christians who take the Word of God seriously have believed all along–both the earth and the entire universe were formed quite recently.
