Geologists believe that the ones we find must have been transported supersonically to the surface, in extremely violent eruptions through volcanic pipes.
Some are found in these pipes, such as kimberlites, while other diamonds were liberated by water erosion and deposited elsewhere (called alluvial diamonds).
That was the orthodox view of the Christian church for 1,800 years.
) is only 5,730 years—that is, every 5,730 years, half of it decays away.

The theory of evolution has become so ubiquitous in the scientific world today that it even distorts the way geological formations are dated.
Because carbon is expected to be thoroughly mixed throughout the biosphere, atmosphere, and oceans, living organisms (which continually “take in” carbon throughout their lifetimes) are expected to have the same C in their bodies begins to decrease.
In principle, this decay rate may be used to “date” the time since an organism’s death.
Isn’t the evidence for millions of years of earth history overwhelming?
For more than ten years now a paper by Roger Wiens entitled ‘Radiometric Dating: A Christian Perspective’ has been saying that radio-isotopic dating is absolutely reliable and the earth is definitely millions of years old.
