    We waste our time (pun intended) trying to determine the age of the earth. The discussion is about temporal matters that are meaningless to inheriting eternal life. If an unsaved person rejects Christianity because some Christian doesn't hold to an ancient earth, that same person, even if proved right by God, would still find an excuse to reject God. Until a person confesses their sins, repents of their evil, and receives grace from the Spirit of God, they will not have peace.

    The Bible clearly shows us that our inheriting eternal life is important to God, but the Bible also clearly shows us that there are many other things that are important to God—including Chronology and what happened when. However, we need not waste time trying to determine the age of the earth because the age of the earth has been very carefully measured and found to be 4.54 billion years. For a very good article written by a conservative evangelical Christian, please see here:

    Radiometric Dating

    Due to the great care in obtaining this measurement, and the fact that it is in perfect harmony with the results of other research, it is accepted as accurate by all of the branches of the physical and life sciences.
