This Is The Oldest Object On Earth, Is It Proof God Created The World?
This discovery of a blue zircon crystal, is making scientists rethink Earth‘s early geological history. The blue crystal is 4.4 billion years old, and is the oldest known fragment of any type planet.
The zircon crystal, measures just 200 by 400 microns, about twice the diameter of a human hair. It was extracted back in in 2001 from a rock in Australia.
Zircon rocks provide the only physical evidence from the earliest phases of Earth’s geological past. The age for a post-magma-ocean zircon confirmed by atom-probe tomography.
The only physical evidence from the earliest phases of Earth’s evolution comes from zircons, ancient mineral grains that can be dated using the U–Th–Pb geochronometer. Oxygen isotope ratios from such zircons have been used to infer when the hydrosphere and conditions habitable to life were established.
*By the way for all believers, Exodus 24:10 says that the throne of God is laden with sapphire jewels in front of it.
…Then Moses went up with Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel, 10 and they saw the God of Israel; and under His feet there appeared to be a pavement of sapphire, as clear as the sky itself.
