Age of solar system from radiometric dating
Of the known inputs and outputs of salt only about 25% of sodium can be shown to leave the oceans.This limits the age of the oceans to 62 million years—a problem for evolutionists.
Evolutionists claim that the sodium content is in a steady-state “because salts are removed from the ocean at the same rate as they are added” (Glencoe, p. Knowing the rates of sodium input and output, the maximum age of the oceans can be calculated at 62 million years.
The amount of salt in the oceans is another way to set a limit on the age of the earth’s oceans.
In the evolutionary model, the seas formed over 4 billion years ago.
Other methods can be used to date events in the history of the solar system.
Using lunar recession, we established a limit of 1.5 billion years on the age of the moon (see chapter 3).
Although this is one way that evolutionary scientists interpret the age of the earth, there are many other techniques that can be used.
