The Earth is not 6 000 yrs old!

This is a really good article. It does get a little intense towards the end. I'm thinking of making a wallet sized version so I can have a weapon in case I ever get into an argument with some religious nut.
What is most astonishing is the absolute ignorance of people who still honestly and sincerely believe the Earth is only 6 000 years old....

....For many years they used radioactive carbon dating, but it has its limitations as the age of fossils, rocks or meteorite sites older than 40 000 years, cannot be measured in this way.
