Age of the Earth is 4,54-4,6 billions of years. These numbers are based on radioisotope dating. Studying fossil coral, whose age is 400 million years, paleogeologists found that in those early days the year consisted of 400 days. Calculations show that the radius of the Earth, on average, increased by the amount of 1.3834475 mm. If the modern Earth’s radius 6371 km divided by 1.3834475 mm per year, we get time, the Earth’s growth since its inception to date, equal to 4.6 billion years, which is consistent with the reference data. In accordance with the above, we determine the age of the terrestrial planets: Mercury, Venus and Mars.
KEYWORDS: age of the Earth, the radius of the Earth, Mercury, Venus and Mars, radioisotope dating, non-radioisotope dating, fossil corals.
