4004 B.C. the year that the universe was created.
Dendrochronology (the study of tree rings) says, ‘wrong’.
“A tree ring history whose beginning and end dates are not known is called a floating chronology. It can be anchored by cross-matching a section against another chronology (tree ring history) whose dates are known. Fully anchored chronologies which extend back more than 11,000 years exist for river oak trees from South Germany (from the Main and Rhine rivers) and pine from Northern Ireland. Furthermore, the mutual consistency of these two independent dendrochronological sequences has been confirmed by comparing their radiocarbon and dendrochronological ages. Another fully anchored chronology which extends back 8500 years exists for the bristlecone pine in the Southwest US (White Mountains of California).” source
In tree rings, we have irrefutable evidence of an earth which is much older than 6000 years. So here’s the question: Given that the genealogies of Genesis have been proven to be false, how trustworthy are the authors of the OT?
