RTB 101: Biblical Evidence for an Old Earth — When the Bible speaks to an issue it is the supreme authority. Thus, what the Bible has to say about the age of the earth carries great significance. The Bible never specifies a date for creation, but the creation accounts in Genesis provide some guidance.
RTB 101: Scientific Evidence for an Old Earth — RTB affirms that the scientific community has reconstructed the chronological history of Earth (and the universe) with remarkable precision and accuracy. Some notable elements of that chronology include Earth’s formation 4.5 billion years ago, the first confirmed appearance of life around 3.5 billion years ago, the Cambrian explosion at 540 million years ago, and the origin of humanity somewhere between 50 and 150 thousand years ago. Obviously scientists have determined some dates more accurately than others, but the consistency of different dating techniques applied to the same event gives confidence in the overall chronology.
A Matter of Days — In this rerelease of A Matter of Days, with more than 50 pages of new content, Dr. Ross covers some of the latest points of conflict over creation’s timing in hopes of resolving the creation-day controversy.
The Lab — We’d like to invite anyone ages 16–22 to join us in an elite three-day mentoring program specifically designed for students who have a vision to pursue a career in science, engineering, or medical research. Our goal is to harness the power of bright young Christian minds for the kingdom of God.
