What is the exact age f the earth right now?
No one can tell you exactly of course. But modern geologists and geophysicists consider the age of the Earth to be around 4.54 billion years old. This age has been determined by radiometric age dating of meteorite material and is consistent with the ages of the oldest-known terrestrial and lunar samples.
