    If they are in agreement then why is there a range of age presented?

    Age of the Earth
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    The age of the Earth is 4.54 0.05 billion years (4.54 109 years 1%).[1][2][3] This age is based on evidence from radiometric age dating of meteorite material and is consistent with the ages of the oldest-known terrestrial and lunar samples. Following the scientific revolution and the development of radiometric age dating, measurements of lead in uranium-rich minerals showed that some were in excess of a billion years old.[4]

    The oldest such minerals analyzed to date – small crystals of zircon from the Jack Hills of Western Australia – are at least 4.404 billion years old.[5][6][7] Comparing the mass and luminosity of the Sun to the magnitudes of other stars, it appears that the solar system cannot be much older than those rocks. Ca-Al-rich inclusions (inclusions rich in calcium and aluminium) – the oldest known solid constituents within meteorites that are formed within the solar system – are 4.567 billion years old,[8][9] giving an age for the solar system and an upper limit for the age of Earth.

    It is hypothesised that the accretion of Earth began soon after the formation of the Ca-Al-rich inclusions and the meteorites. Because the exact accretion time of Earth is not yet known, and the predictions from different accretion models range from a few millions up to about 100 million years, the exact age of Earth is difficult to determine. It is also difficult to determine the exact age of the oldest rocks on Earth, exposed at the surface, as they are aggregates of minerals of possibly different ages.

    There appears to be very little arguement about the age of the earth, or how formed etc. But even if there woz a lot of arguement about the age, this would be sort of 1000th on the list of arguements, and sort of 1000th on the list of importance.
    The age iz surely wrong by miles, but it will be the reasons for the error that will for sure be important -- the age itself of the earth itself, no big deal.

    In a way all such science will be tied up with all such science -- and aetherists like myself know that allmost all standard science, especially einsteinian relativity etc, and quantum mekanix etc, and einsteinian gravity etc, are all kompletely wrong.
    This will be a major scientifyk skandal for sure.
    And i am surprized that creationists are not circling.
