Indicators of a "young earth," with rebuttals
There is a major conflict between two groups:
||Many conservative Jews, Christians and Muslims, who estimate that the Earth and the rest of the universe is less than 10,000 years old, and
||Geologists, cosmologists, biologists and other scientists who estimate the Earth's age at 4.5 billion years, and the original "big bang" that started the universe at about 13.7 billion years.

of proofs by scientists to show that the earth is extremely old. The arguments
in that essay also contain rebuttals.
