Since none of us were present at the Earth’s beginning, we must be careful in our assessment as to its date. I suggest we use science, scrutiny, and Scripture to make that determination. However, evolutionists, instead of using correct science, common sense, and confirmed Scriptures, insist on using junk science to arrive at dates that will support their house of cards.
“But,” say some sincere Christians, “everyone knows the Earth is billions of years old.” How do we know that? Genesis surely does not indicate an old age for the Earth, and neither does science. We have been brainwashed through our education, the media, and our associates and have purchased another gold brick sold by thumb-sucking liberals.
“Well,” says another “isn’t it possible that God could have created the world over a long period of time?” Of course it is possible, and even if one admitted it was also probable, that wouldn’t make it true. God could have done it any way He wanted, but the evidence and the Bible clearly indicate a young Earth.
According to a group of mathematicians, all of whom were evolutionists, it would have taken not five billion years for man to evolve but billions of times longer! So they need even more time for their myth. Of course, the age of the Earth has been increased by scientists for many years to mold current thinking to fit their implausible story. In Darwin’s day, the Earth was only 100 million years old, but now we are told it is at least 4.5 billion years old!
The estimated ages for an ancient Earth are usually based on “clocks” that are unreliable, uncalibrated, and unknowable. A good example is the coral growth rates that were thought to require hundreds of thousands of years, but now it is believed that no coral formation need be over 3,500 years old! There are many such proofs of a young Earth, yet blind evolutionists keep demanding an old Earth.
Similar to coral formations, stalactite and stalagmite formations in caves are said to take long ages to form proving the Earth is ancient; but now we know that the evidence is specious, and such growth can form in only a few years. The cave guides can prate on and on about the “ancient” formations, but the evidence refutes their canned spiel.
A curtain of stalactites, some five feet in length, grows from the foundation ceiling beneath the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. The memorial was built in 1923, so those stalactites have been produced in less than a hundred years!
Further evidence of non-uniformitarianism relating to stalagmites is found in the Carlsbad (NM) Caverns where a bat was found encased inside a stalagmite! That is impossible if many years are necessary to form stalagmites and stalactites because the bat would have decayed or been eaten by predators in a very short period of time. Looks as if we have to discard another “clock” used by evolutionists to prove an ancient Earth.
The Great Barrier Reef is less than 4,200 years old and that date is ascertained because we know the growth rate for the last 25 years.
Geologists know that each stratum of sedimentary rock laid on top of each other show no signs of erosion as they were laid down over “millions” of years. Everyone knows that exposure of stratum over millions of years would have resulted in massive erosion. However, the record shows the opposite. That is because “millions of years” is a myth. The stratums were laid during and after the Flood so there was no time for erosion.
Another indication of a young Earth are large trees (which pass through several rock layers vertically) that could not have stood upright for millions of years without rotting while they were slowly buried. These polystrate fossils were buried during the Flood.
Thick layers of “rock” bent without fracturing, indicate that the rock was soft when bent and no doubt happened following the Flood of Noah. Firm strata will break but it will not bend except in the evolutionary textbooks.
Red blood cells and hemoglobin have been found in some (unfossilized!) dinosaur bones but that’s impossible. Not even the most fanatical evolutionist declares that bones can lie in strata for 65 million years and still be “fresh.” So, obviously those dinosaur bones were not millions of years old.
Moreover, evolutionists told us that it takes thousands or maybe millions of years for wood to petrify but now we know that wood can petrify in less than a hundred years!
We have been taught that oil was produced deep in the Earth about 25,000,000 years ago; however, high grade oil has been produced out of cow manure in a laboratory in twenty minutes! And there goes another one!
The Earth can’t be almost five billion years old because the rivers of the world have been constantly carrying sodium to the ocean, and if the world were 4.5 billion years old, there would be much more sodium in the ocean than there is!
Studies have been done to chart the volume and rate of sediment accumulation in the Mississippi delta, and that area could not be much older than 4,000 years! The age is found by dividing the weight of sediments deposited yearly into the total weight of the delta. If the Earth were only a few million years old, the Gulf of Mexico would be full of sediment!
The oldest living things on Earth, according to the American Forestry Association, are the bristlecone pines that grow on the White Mountains of California. They are at least 4,600 years old, no doubt having sprung up from seeds soon after the Flood. Again, an indication of a young Earth. And if the world is ancient, there should be trees much older than 5,000 years.
There is an average 7 or 8 inches of top soil that sustains all of life on the Earth, while the Earth beneath the top soil is as dead as the moon. Scientists tell us that the combination of plants, bacterial decay and erosion will produce six inches of top soil in 5,000 to 20,000 years. If the Earth had been here for 5 billion years, we should have much more top soil than the 7 or 8 inches.
Newspapers in March of 1980 reported that the sun’s diameter appears to have been decreasing by about one-tenth percent per century. That means the sun is shrinking about five feet per hour, and that’s no problem if you are a Creationist. But, you have big trouble if you are an evolutionist!
Dennis Petersen aptly addressed this problem: “If the sun existed only 100,000 years ago it would have been double its present diameter. And only twenty million years ago the surface of the sun would be touching the Earth.” (Emphasis his.) But then we know that didn’t happen, don’t we? Obviously the Earth and the universe are very young.
We are told that man has been on the Earth one million years, but the population does not reflect that age. There would not be enough room for people to stand if the population grew at the same rate as the Jewish people, a reasonable standard. The Jews started with Jacob about 3,700 years ago, and there are 14,000,000 Jews in the world today. So, assuming 2.4 children per family, and a life-span of 43 years, the world would be packed with people if man had been on the Earth only one million years. That is considering the almost perpetual malice, mistreatment and murder of Jews.
Make no mistake, evolutionists must have an ancient Earth or their house of cards comes
tumbling down, so they have influenced, inculcated, and indoctrinated many people with their “billions of years.” They made an assumption and jumped to the wrong conclusion.
Assumptions are necessary in science; however, facts must be added to support or refute an assumption. Evolution is a belief system; in fact, it is a very religious system!
While evolutionists prate on and on about the ages of the rocks, we Creationists will stand firmly on the Rock of Ages.
It’s a young world after all!

Fact, Fraud or Faith?
by Don Boys, Ph.D.
Only an uninformed fanatic says that evolution or creation can be proved scientifically. Christians believe in creationism because we believe in the veracity of the Bible but we also have scientific evidence to support our position. In every debate I’ve had with evolutionary scientists, the arrogant, asinine accusation is made, “Well, evolution is scientific while creationism is religion.” Evolution is about as scientific as a voodoo rooster plucking ceremony in Haiti. Almost.
