Earth And Moon May Be 60,000,000 Years Older Than Previously Thought

earth-and-moon.jpg Scientists analyzing the xenon gas in quartz crystals found in South Africa and Australia have determined the earth may be as much as 60-million years older than previously thought. Wow, a lot of missed birthdays. Fingers crossed it doesn't demand make-up presents.
New research indicates that the Earth and moon are 60 million years older than previously estimated. That is, the violent collision believed to have created the moon and gave Earth its current form occurred just 40 million years after the solar system formed some 4.5 billion years ago. Previous estimates had the Earth and the moon forming 100 million years after the solar system's formation. How confident are the researchers of their finding? Not super-confident. They acknowledged that the 60 million year figure may be off by as much as 20 million years.
No word what young earth creationists think about all this, but probably that science is bullshit and how can xenon gas in quartz crystals tell us anything about anything. And even if it could, Satan just put it there to make people question their faith because he's a dick and that's what he does. Plus meets newcomers at the gates of hell and makes them do jumping jacks clenching red-hot coals between their buttcheeks. That should be reason enough to repent. Thanks to OC, who agrees the earth is only as old as it feels like it is. How old do you feel, Earth? "I dribble pee when I walk." Damn, you are old.
