My fault

I had been resisting the terrible urge to respond to the initial off-topic post on the topic, expecting to see an admin message show up on it, and then other people...kept responding to it...so I gave in to my urge, and paid the price.
Hi Belfry.
That's my fault, obviously. I seem to be unable to put together a coherent post. The point I was trying to make was that I was, previously, debating with my brother on the credibility of evolution. I noted, to my brother, that evolution is usually a gradual process that takes millions upon millions of years, and the fossil record is strong support of this.
He responded that dating techniques were flawed and unreliable; that the fossils which were claimed to be millions of years old was a farce; that the earth couldn't be 4.6 or so billion years old. He used the hydrogen rebuttal as support for his assertion. I was merely asking whether anyone had previously heard of this claim before.
Whether my post was on/off topic I didn't know, hence the reason for my asking the question "Is this post even on topic".
Again, I apologize for my inability to provide a clear and coherent post, and for being the catalyst of your indignation.
