Using radiometric dating how old is the earth

Astronomers use the distance to galaxies and the speed of light to calculate that the light has been traveling for billions of years.

The expansion of the universe gives an age for the universe as a whole: 13.7 billion years old.

First, it provides no evidence whatsoever to support their claim that the earth is very young.

If the earth were only 6000–10 000 years old, then surely there should be some scientific evidence to confirm that hypothesis; yet the creationists have produced not a shred of it so far.

The topic of radiometric dating has received some of the most vicious attacks by young earth creation science theorists.

However, none of the criticisms of young earth creationists have any scientific merit.

Many isotopes have been studied, probing a wide range of time scales.Where are the data and age calculations that result in a consistent set of ages for all rocks on earth, as well as those from the moon and the meteorites, no greater than 10 000 years? Second, it is an approach doomed to failure at the outset.
