Perhaps we can agree on what an assumption is, even a scientific assumption. No modern scientists were eyewitness to any of these past events. In my lifetime, the age of the Earth has moved by billions of years.

Scientific data is continuously getting more accurate. In the same way that Pi isn't just 3.14, or 3.1415, or 3.141592 the age of the Earth is constantly being refined as new or better data becomes available.

Over the course of a billion years, an error of only 1% still means the number will be off by 10 million years.... Think about that for a second. Of course the number is going to swing by vast amounts because we talking about an incredible number of integers.

As for evidence of 8, not 12, people in more recent times, it has been established by scientists how the human population has, until the advent of modern medicine, doubled approximately every 125 years or so. Put 7 Billion into an Excel spreadsheet, and then divide by two every 125 years... when do you get to 8 persons? Pretty interesting... as you can imagine, I would interpret this as a piece of data where archaeology and other sciences are affirming the possibilities we see in the Holy Bible.

Do you really want to that?

7,000,000,000 / 2 = 3,500,000,000

3,500,000,000 / 2 = 1,750,000,000

etc.

etc.

Do that a few more times, and by the 30th time, you have 6.5 people left on Earth.

30 x 125 year intervals = 3,750 years...

So Noah's flood happened 3,750 years ago?

Yikes!
