The straightforward reading of Scripture reveals that the days of creation () were literal days and that the earth is just thousands of years old and not billions.
There appears to be a fundamental conflict between the Bible and the reported ages given by radioisotope dating.

Radioisotope dating (also referred to as radiometric dating) is the process of estimating the age of rocks from the decay of their radioactive elements.
Since God is the Creator of all things (including science), and His Word is true (“), the true age of the earth must agree with His Word.
Scientists use a technique called radiometric dating to estimate the ages of rocks, fossils, and the earth.
Yet, accurate dating of fossils is so essential that the scientific respectability of evolution is contingent upon fossils having appropriate dates.
Popular presentations of human evolution show a rather smooth transition of fossils leading to modern humans.
Atoms are made up of much smaller particles called protons, neutrons, and electrons.
