Our Young Earth

Evolutionary scientists claim our planet formed 4.5 billion years ago, in spite of strong evidence it's only a few thousand years old.

Evolutionary scientists claim our planet formed 4.5 billion years ago, in spite of strong evidence it’s only a few thousand years old. For starters, our magnetic field behaves as if though the planet has a giant bar magnet deep inside. How this works remains an unsolved mystery, but we know from careful measurements since 1835 that this field is decaying, losing half its strength every 1,400 years. Projecting the rate backwards to 10,000 years ago, it would have been strong enough to literally melt the earth. Obviously there’s a problem with their model.

Earth is finely tuned for life.  Our atmosphere nourishes us while not causing greenhouse effects like Venus. Our Earth rotates at just the right speed.  Any faster and we’d have severely violent storms; any slower and our temperature ranges become extreme, killing our food supply. Evolutionary models say the inner planets closest to the Sun shouldn’t have any water, but we do.  They claim our water came from comets, but their ice composition is different than ours – comets have too much deuterium. The Bible says in the flood of Noah’s day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up. The Mid Atlantic Ridge reveals the eruption zone of those old fountains, dividing and sliding continents away from each other, whose shorelines match both geometrically and geologically. When sceptics ask you where all the flood waters went, tell them to go to the beach and look at it. [1]

There are many observations for a young earth.  What follows is a sampling from a long list. [2]  We’ve extracted DNA from bacteria allegedly 425 million years old (MYO).  DNA is very fragile; it can’t last more than thousands of years. We’ve revived bacteria found in salt inclusions supposedly 250 MYO, implying the salt isn’t that old. Plenty of fossil bones dated to many MYO aren’t mineralized.  Some marine worm tubes dated to 550 MYO are soft and flexible. Secular scientist Mary Schweitzer found blood cells, blood vessels, proteins, collagen and DNA in dinosaur bones supposedly 65 MYO. Ages of the world’s oldest trees agree with an earth of a few thousand years. The Arches National Park has 2,000+ rock arches, where 43 have collapsed since 1970 – a rate of one per year, which means they’d all be gone in 2,000 years. This rate is compatible with a biblical timeframe, not 5 MYO as claimed. All the world’s high mountain ranges – the Himalayas, Alps, Andes, and Rockies – had a recent and simultaneous origin, uplifted to their current height allegedly 5 MYO; but evolution says those mountain building processes have been around for billions of years. The erosion at Niagra Falls is consistent with just a few thousand years since Noah’s flood. And lastly – there’s not enough salt nor sediments in the ocean; in fact, both the sodium chloride concentration and sedimentary depths match a flood model perfectly.

Evolutionists needs deep time and chance to accidentally design everything. Their mantra, “the present is the key to the past”, claims Earth’s slow and gradual changes explain the above phenomena, not instantaneous divine creation followed by a global catastrophic flood. Our God predicted their theory would say all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. He explains why: For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished. Indeed, they blindly reject Noah’s flood account as an unreliable event. Sadly, as long as they hold to this error, they are reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
