“There are a number of different scientific techniques and measurements that indicate that the universe and earth have a long history. For example, the red-shift of distant objects (Doppler effect) indicates that the universe is at least 14 billion years old. …”
My Comment: I would like to emphasize the phrase “at least.” Since we are unable to explore nor even observe the entire universe, this means that the universe is probably much older. This does not mean that human life is that old, of course.
