When it come to the earth, whether it be about its life, time created or life span you can assure there will be many different theories and beliefs.

As far as new techniques are concerned for religion there is none, religions have remain unchanged from the time they were created and followers follow the same teachings from generation to generation, the only thing that changes is their interpretations and with these different interpretations come denominations and even with this the main belief remains the same.

(Mathew 24:35)
In conclusion everything we know about the beginning of time and the life of the earth are all theories, what we need to do is have faith that the earth and all the elements in the universe will remain forever or at least for many generations
