"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.

Butch5 Stars Out Of 5So true!June 18, 2017ButchQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Your thoughts make me recall the teachings of other great Christian throughout history! All the brave men who have had the courage to speak out against heathens who dare to disrespect the Lord, all in the name of their so called science. Thank you Jesus, thank you, for the these brave souls who defend your word. Men who held true to the tenant that the world is flat! Men who realized "If God meant us to fly, he'd have given us wings! Or then men who know even today, that such things as "climactic change" are all just rumors, spread by greedy Jews. All the record breaking storms and other climactic anomalies are all just the lord's attempt to rid us of mud races! These men know that we need more men like Adolph Hitler, to rid us of the Jew threat and all them blacks and latinos who take all then entitlements, while we good Christians work and pay taxes. Thank you Jesus, for get the Russian to interfere with our election...You saved us from another 4 years of having Obama and Hillary, the two leaders and founders of Isis, from running our country! At least Donald Trump fired off 60 missiles, at a cost of 2.4 million dollars each (plus the cost of deployment of our vessels and manpower), all to kill as many people as possible and accomplish nothing in doing so! Then we dropped the "MOAB", again to no avail, but as Christians we know it's okay to kill innocent people, because we're all "saved"! Yes, we must thank the lord that we as Christians, will never fall pray to such tools of the devil, such as, science, reason, acceptance of others, and of course may God forbid, that we ever lose our guns! We know it's our Zionist government that wants to take our guns away, so that they can take all our wealth and give it to the Mexicans! Oh Donald, our lord has sent you to us, so you can build that wall! Yup, we Christians sure always knew the score alright! Just like we know that the moon landing was faked by the Jews in Hollywood, and that Elvis is still alive, and that the existence of extraterrestrials is blasphemy and nonsense! The nearly infinite amount of stars and planets in the Universe....They are just there as a night sky decoration. If you start believing in the near certainty of a universe brimming with all sorts of life forms, why next thing you know, you'll start to believe in other non-sense like genetics, and micro organisms, just all sorts of scientific lies and blasphemy! Besides, my good Christian neighbor, who lives in the trailer next to mine with her new boyfriend and her 4 kids and his three kids....Well to help make extra money, she uses her psychic powers to see ghosts and spirits and see the future. Well, she done me a reading last week, and she told me that my dear departed mama, who died at only 31 of a drug over dose, said that she can see me floating up with Jesus when the rapture comes, and she said that she heard Jesus laughing with and telling me how funny the whole idea of other life in the universe is to him! Now if that girl saw that in her vision, then I know it's true! I mean, that girl is amazing! She's not only been blessed with her gift, but at 19 she is able to raise her 4 kids and the 3 from her boyfriend! Plus, she's been clean and sober for almost a whole year! Thank Jesus, thank you for all our smarts and bleesings! Sorry the Jews killed you...We know them Jews done it, even though you are Jewish yourself, even though the Romans wanted you dead, and even though you were excuted by a common Romain style of execution! Nah, we Christians are so smart, that we can't be fooled! Gotta go know, I gotta send more money to the Christian Coalition...They really need our donations from our wefare checks! Praise the Lord!
Anthony Shuler5 Stars Out Of 5Great book!January 26, 2011Anthony ShulerQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Excellent book presenting a brief synopsis of the results of the R.A.T.E. (Radioisotopes and the age of the Earth) project. This project was undertaken by some of the top Bible believing scientists of our day and has made discoveries, which are presented in this book, that confirm the true Genesis account of creation. Very original and informative. One of the tops works on the issue of creation/evolution/age of the earth ever produced. Including research from scientists such as Dr. D. Russell Humphreys, Dr. Andrew Snelling, and Dr. Steven Austin as well as others. Highly recommended.
Joel Weber5 Stars Out Of 5July 23, 2007Joel WeberA detailed account of the many, flawed methods of scientific measurement for the purposes of identifying age. The field of science, along with all others, is also at the mercy of pre-conceived theories, theologies and world views. This book will allow you to ponder and weigh all our so-called scientific evidence for millions and billions of earth age, after carefully detailing the assumptions, statistical manipulations and flaws found in all our dating methods.The evidence does not uniformly point to an old earth, unless you have such an preconceived notion.
