"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.

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.
