why geologists are wrong, wrong, wrong! about the age of the earth By Alison Campbell • 06/05/2011 • 7 This post was syndicated from BioBlog - View original source I came across the following diagram on Peter Bowditch’s wonderful The Millenium Project. Like him, I hope it’s a poe; but nonetheless, I find it has a certain dreadful fascination. Who knew that geologists could get it so wrong?

Reply …exploding into space presumably. Or does water come with us to the afterlife? Reply I’d suggest that someone email the author and tell him about the water cycle, however, he (?) might think that is something you find at a water park 🙂 Reply Almost certainly a Poe. It appeared on the atheism subreddit last week (www.reddit.com/r/atheism), where no one was able to identify any other source, meaning it was almost certainly made just to post there. I like that they think there have been 6 billion people alive for every day of earth’s existence though. Reply Sigh…. I knew it was too good to be true! Reply Just think 2 litres of water a day without a chance to pee it all back into the cycle!!! It reminds me of those honey ants that turn into permanent tankers. The Mind Boggles. Reply By this logic earth has had the population of 7 million people for 4.6 billion years. So for the past 4 billion years we randomly appeared and had the EXACT amount of children for every death.
