    [FONT=proxima_nova_rgregular]Scientists using two different age-determining techniques have shown that a tiny zircon crystal found on a sheep ranch in western Australia is the oldest known piece of our planet, dating to 4.4 billion years ago.

    [FONT=proxima_nova_rgregular]Writing in the journal Nature Geoscience on Sunday, the researchers said the discovery indicates that Earth's crust formed relatively soon after the planet formed and that the little gem was a remnant of it.

    Let's see fuckers try to argue our planet only being 6000 years old.

    Crazy how that number became important to people. I think something larger than us created the universe but to lock it down to a 6,000 yr time frame is just short sighted. Why lock your belief to a time period?

    If I am mistaken, allow me to get the apologies out of the way now.

    But I think they're dating everyone from Adam & Eve until now: roughly 6000 years.

    Yes. Even the insane Pat Robertson disagrees with 6,000 years and says everyone should embrace Science.

    Interesting how that 6000 year number is up for debate, but someone claiming they can measure 4.4 BILLION years ago goes without challenge.
