While there are methods that help us learn more about the earth’s age, these methods don’t measure the actual age of the planet; they measure the age of the item being tested. We can, for example, date a rock to be billions of years old, but even if we could prove that that measurement be accurate (which we can’t, even though it very well may be), the rock could easily be older or younger than the earth itself. Beyond that, it’s just an educated guess.
