This long-awaited book shatters the famed dating methods employed by evolutionists to cast doubt on the veracity of the Bible and its chronology of earth history.

“Evolutionary models for life, earth, and space are questioned today by a significant group of scientists worldwide. They are convinced that the earth and the entire universe are the result of a supernatural creation event which occurred just thousands of years ago, not billions of years.”

• Why do conventional methods for dating rocks differ so radically?

• What does carbon-14 found in diamonds tell us?

• Was there accelerated nuclear decay in earth’s history?

• Are the creation and Flood accounts genuine historic events?

These and many other questions are addressed in Thousands…Not Billions. This book summarizes eight years of research by the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) and a team of scientists, whose goal was to explore the age of the earth from a biblical perspective. The project title was Radioisotopes and the Age of The Earth, or RATE. The age of the earth is one of the most divisive topics today, much debated by scholars and laypersons alike. What one believes about the age of the earth goes a long way in determining world views. The Bible is explicit that the earth is young, but many people feel that science has proved our planet is more than four billion year old. Thousands…Not Billions provides a compelling challenge to Darwinian evolution.

Radiometric dating is one of the linchpins of evolutionary education today. By dating the soil in which fossils are found to very long ages, evolutionists undermine faith in Genesis as the true documentary of the history of the universe. When people are told that a dinosaur bone has been determined to be tens of millions of years old, that obviously doesn’t square with the biblical record of man being created on day 6 with the land animals.

But DeYoung now demonstrates that Christians no longer have to puzzle over this glaring contradiction. A must-have for the serious Bible student, Thousands . . . not Billions will bolster the faith of many.

• Destroys one of the major barriers for faith seekers: alleged long ages for the earth

• Provides scientific evidences that correlate to biblical history and time-lines

• Can be used as an apologetic; many shun the faith because of alleged scientific “facts”

• A sensational answer to “old earth” critics

• A powerful book written in plain language

Radioisotopes and the Age of the Earth (Compendium)
Age of the Earth / Universe
The age of the Earth and/or universe is perhaps one of the most significant conflicts that exists between the Bible and secular science assertions. If the Bible can be taken as historically accurate, then the creation was a very recent event, and the fossil record is instead due to the Biblical flood of Noah.
