How old is the Earth?
 
Just curious about the ratio of peoples beliefs here.

eta: I believe I set this up as a private poll so no need to fear being labeled a whatever. Just give the answer that you actually believe.

for you smarty pants wearers that think "its exactly 10,000 years old", give the answer you believe at the moment you click submit.

It is as old as time itself, "grasshopper"

WarLord 01-21-2013 06:39 PM

It's only 100 years old

This will be interesting to see after the poll has been given some time.

As a man of science, you can't argue with facts (carbon dating, radiometric dating, etc.). Earth has been around for a long loooooong time.

I am from Michigan, and I recently watched a History Channel show that said my State was formed by 10 separate Ice Ages. That's a lot of Global Warming Al Gore.

It depends on your definition and perspective ;). I get the jist of your question though, and the answer I chose was greater than 10,000 years.

Amazing How Many People Actually Believe...
 
... the Earth is less than 4.3 billion years old; the current accepted scientific estimate. Give or take a tad. But then...so many folks also voted for the president....so go figure. HB of CJ (old coot)

I hope those who think it's less than 10k years are voting to be funny :confused:

I've heard when the US public as a whole was polled, the ratio of "Young Earthers" was about twice this polls current results.

Its more than just believing in God. Its believing in Biblical Literalism, the existance of Man on Earth since very near the beginning and the "Begat Math".
