Meteors Show Evolution Earth Age Is Wrong

According to most scientists who support evolution, the earth is about 4.5 billion years old and they teach the universe is about 10 to 15 billion years old.  In 1862, physicist W. Thomson – Lord Kelvin of Glasgow assumed by calculations that the Earth is between 20 to 400 million years; and in the 1890s he reduced it to 20 million years.  As the THEORY of Evolution became more accepted, scientists began to increase the estimates.  Yet, no scientific method can PROVE the age of the earth or the universe.

In 1905, Boltwood’s rock studies caused him to guess they ranged from 92 to 570 million years old.  Quite a range.  Holmes (The Age of the Earth… 1927 text) suggested 1.6 to 3 billion years; again what a range for error.  And radiometric dating in 1956 on the Canyon Diablo meteorite assumed the earth to be 4.55 billion years old.  Yet, these studies assume rates of change in the past were the same as today and they used dating on the rock samples (which only previously organic material can be somewhat accurately dated to thousands of years) without dating the original parent sample.

However, this article is not about arguing carbon or uranium dating; or about using wisdom found in 2 Peter 3:5.  This is about mathematics, reason and an examination of facts.

NUMBER OF LARGE IMPACT METEORS THAT HIT THE EARTH

(Where are the other 30,000 to 1.3 million large impact CRATERS?)

According to Space.com “thousands of meteorites weighing about a pound are thought to fall to Earth every year.”

According to NASA.gov (2/2017) ‘Asteroid Fast Facts,’ “…About once a year, an automobile-sized asteroid hits Earth’s atmosphere, creates an impressive fireball, and burns up before reaching the surface.  Every 2,000 years or so, a meteoroid the size of a football field hits Earth and causes significant damage to the area.  Only once every few million years, an object large enough to threaten Earth’s civilization comes along.  Impact craters on Earth, the moon… are evidence of these occurrences…”

Note: if the earth was 6 million years old (about 1,000 times more than its actual existence; Jewish Year 5,777 = 2017) then there would be about 30,000 x .3 such meteoroids (.3 or 30%; because deep water covers about 70% of the earth’s surface) that significantly impact land; or 300,000 x .3 if the Earth was 600 million years old.   At 4.5 billion years old as some suggest, landing every 2,000 years we should find:

Large Impact Meteor Craters on Earth land surfaces =

(4.5B ÷ 2,000) x .3 = 675,000

(And another 1.57 million in lakes, seas and oceans)

NASA says, “The 1908 Tunguska event was a stony meteorite in the 100-meter class. The famous meteor crater in northern Arizona, some 1219 meters (4,000 feet) in diameter and 183 meters (600 feet) deep, was created 50,000 years ago by a nickel-iron meteorite perhaps 60 meters in diameter. It probably survived nearly intact until impact, at which time it was pulverized and largely vaporized as its 6-7 x 1016 joules* of kinetic energy were rapidly dissipated in an explosion equivalent to some 15 million tons of TNT! Falls of this class occur once or twice every 1000 years… There are now over 100 ring-like structures on Earth recognized as definite impact craters. Most of them are not obviously craters, their identity masked by heavy erosion over the centuries, but the minerals and shocked rocks present make it clear that impact was their cause.”

Based on once every 1,000 years; then

Large Impact Meteor Craters on Earth land surfaces =

(4.5B ÷ 1,000) x .3 = 1.35 million

(And another 3.1 million in lakes, seas and oceans)

Where are the other 30,000 to 1.3 million large impact CRATERS?

Meteors come from asteroids and comets and even the Moon and Mars.  Between 90 to 95% of meteors burn up in the atmosphere before landing on earth.   If earth was older than 6,000 years: and was say 6 million or 600 million then should be 10,000 to 100,000 times more large meteors craters.

Earth Impact Database began in 1955 in Ottawa and has confirmed 190 crater sites; in part by using ‘over 200,000 aerial photographs.’  They also receive information from NASA, the European Space Agency, the Institute for Dynamics of Geospheres, from Universities, and many other sources. Their Regional Planetary Image Facility (RPIF) is 1 of 17 such NASA-designed imagery facilities.

‘Meteorites are rocks, usually containing a great deal of extraterrestrial iron, which were once part of planets or large asteroids. These celestial bodies broke up, or perhaps never fully formed, millions or even billions of years ago.’

According to the PASSC database, there are currently (2016) only 188 known and confirmed meteorite impact craters on the planet earth.  Only 29 well eventuated meteorite impact craters are located in the United States of America.

TONS OF FALLIN DEBRIS

Estimates for the mass of material that falls on Earth each year range from 37,000-78,000 tons. Most of this mass would come from dust-sized particles.

A study done in 1996 (looking at the number of meteorites found in deserts over time) calculated that for objects in the 10 gram to 1 kilogram size range, 2900-7300 kilograms per year hit Earth. However, unlike the number above this does not include the small dust particles. They also estimate between 36 and 166 meteorites larger than 10 grams fall to Earth per million square kilometers per year. Over the whole surface area of Earth, that translates to 18,000 to 84,000 meteorites bigger than 10 grams per year.

Estimates vary of how much cosmic dust and meteorites enter Earth’s atmosphere each day, but range anywhere from 5 to 300 metric tons. When dust particles approach the Earth they enter the atmosphere at very high speeds, anything from 38,000 to 248,000 km/hour, depending on whether they are orbiting in the same direction or the opposite to the Earth’s motion around the Sun. The particles undergo very rapid heating through collisions with air molecules, reaching temperatures well in excess of 1,600 degrees Celsius. Particles with diameters greater than about 2 millimeters produce visible “shooting stars,” but most of the mass of dust particles entering the atmosphere is estimated to be much smaller than this, so can be detected only using specialized meteor radars.  (CODITA Studies)

Conservative Theory

About 50 tons day x 365 = about 18,000 tons a year

18,000 tons (year) x 5,800 years = 104.4 million tons

18,000 tons (yr.) x 4.5 billion years = 81 billion tons of space debris

In the past 40 years, about 12 million pounds of manmade space junk have survived re-entering Earth’s atmosphere, according to the NASA orbital-debris center (2008).  It is also calculated that the Earth is losing about 50,000 tonnes of mass each year (hydrogen and helium), even though an extra 40,000 tonnes of space dust enters the Earth’s gravity.  Because the Earth’s mass is estimated to be 5.97 sextillion tonnes it is almost impossible to measure the real effect.
