I removed this part of the text:
"According to different radiometric dating methods (Rb-Sr, Sm-Nd, U-Pb) the earth has an age of approximately 4.6 Billion years."
I did it for the following reasons:
1) Without some explanatory context, it is out of place in a section called "other creation accounts", since it is not an account or story of creation, but simply a finding of scientists using naturalistic evolutionary bias. It is irrelevant to the topic of the article.
2)It would be better placed in a section concerning radiometric dating since then it would be relevant and it can be discussed in a more critical atmosphere and tested logically and against other experiments.
I won't deal with the issue as to whether it has any real truth value or deal with its logical failings. The main point is that it is out of place.

- Concur. The age of the Earth according to fundamentally flawed dating methods is not "another creation account." And a great number of articles, including radiometric dating already include the information User:Scientist added. Ungtss 13:14, 7 May 2006 (GMT)
Paul Concerning Creation
Testimony of the Apostle Paul Concerning Creation and Final Judgment
As related for events at Mars Hill in Athens, Greece...
...Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. Acts 17:23-31
