4.28 Billion Year Old Rock Vestige - Remnant of Earth’s Crust - Discovered in Canada

(http://ecoworldly.com/files/2008/09/428-billion-year-old-rocks-discovered-in-canada.jpg)

Researchers in Canada have found 4.28 billion year old rocks, probably the world’s oldest, and which may be remnants of a portion of the first crust that formed at the surface of our planet, known as the primordial crust.

The ancient rocks were found in Northern Quebec, along the Hudson’s Bay coast, 40 km south of Inukjuak in an area known as the Nuvvuagittuq greenstone belt.


The researchers who made the discovery estimated the age of the terrestrial rocks using isotopic dating, which analyzes the decay of the radioactive element, neodymium-142, contained within them, a technique that can only be used to date rocks roughly 4.1 billion years old or older.

The Earth is 4.6 billion years old, and remnants of its early crust are extremely rare - most of it has been mashed and recycled into Earth’s interior several times over by plate tectonics since the Earth formed.

It's all lies! Every "true christian" knows the earth is only 6,000 years old. Maybe god made the neodymium-142 decay much slower to make it seem the rock is 4.28 billion years old. It's obviously a test of faith. ::)

NONOONONONO Jesus rode a triceritops and flew on pteridactyls.  PALIN FOR PREZ!!!

The young earth creationists only argue that because it feeds their fantasy.

So true.

Does anyone else want to go see these rocks and possibly take them home just to sit and look at them?

I have a large wall with nothing on it. You just inspired me to build a shelf and add intresting anti creatist artifacts to it. An old rock sample. Some fossils. Ect. All cool stuff. Throw in some skulls because they're cool.

It's not even that close.  It's like some amatuer badminton players jumped on the field with the New York Giants.  Not the same sport, not even close.  No business comparing the two.

Yup, you can tell that was lava at one time.

I'm guessing you think all rock was lava and then it was rock of whatever type it is? 

Here's some more cool stuff about these rocks:  http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7639024.stm

 ;D  may we throw non-existing rocks at you?

one does get the idea that creationists would try denying rocks too.
