Age of the Earth

Age of the Earth

All science supports the Biblical age of the earth, which is 6,000 years.

No science supports the evolutionary age of the earth, which was 5 billion years 30 years ago, and 15 billion years today. This number will keep growing because all perfectly preserved fossils dug out of the ground show no evolution whatsoever, so “scientists” need to keep extending the earth’s age in hopes that someday, somehow, against all logic and science, they will start finding perfectly preserved fossils that show evolution.

The idea that the earth is billions of years old is imposed, not discovered. In other words, science itself shows nothing of the sort. However, “scientists” and their grant money are so vested in the fairy tale of evolution that they have imposed this idiotically long timescale on the universe. You’ve never been shown a single piece of evidence that the earth is billions of years old. You’ve simply been told that it is, and if you question it, you are mocked. In contrast, I could probably devote this entire blog to the mountains of evidence that the earth is young. Here are just a few pieces:

Polystrate Fossils

Trees don’t live millions of years. They live hundreds of years, and that’s if they’re fortunate! Yet all over the place, we find tree fossils extending through multiple layers of rock that “scientists” tell us represent millions of years.

This tree is a polystrate fossil. That is, a single fossil inhabiting multiple geological strata. If the horizontal rock layers in the photo took millions of years to form, we would see no tree– it would have died, decomposed, and disappeared early in the first stratum. Rather than these layers being laid down over millions of years, they were laid down in days or hours as the waters of Noah’s Flood receded. This all happened approximately 4,000 years ago, which is ample time for the sediment layers to then turn into rock. The Biblical account makes perfect sense. The evolutionary account makes zero unless we suspend everything we know about science, and force ourselves to believe a fairy tale that we never look into, which is exactly what our society has done.

Niagara Falls

As water goes over Niagara Falls, it erodes sediment at the edge. This erosion has erased 4-5 feet per year off the end of the river before the falls, and has moved Niagara Falls approximately 7 miles southward.

At the rate of 4-5 feet per year, Niagara Falls moved 7 miles southward in 7,000-9,000 years. Even if we allow some variation in this erosion rate to account for times of reduced flow (drought) and times of excessive flow (Noah’s flood), the Biblical timescale of thousands of years makes perfect sense, and the evolutionary timescale of billions of years makes no sense.

Earth’s Population

If the current human population descended from the eight people aboard Noah’s Ark around 4,000 years ago, as the Bible teaches, the population growth would calculate to 0.5% per year. This growth rate is consistent with the growth rate we see demonstrated in modern history, which is said to have peaked at around 2% in the 1960s. Today’s population matches perfectly with the account of Noah’s flood.

In contrast, the math involved in the evolutionary population account is something out of a bad science fiction movie. Evolutionists tell us that humans came on the scene around 3 million years ago. At the current rate of population growth, the number of humans that should be alive today is so large as to be absurd, and would not fit on the surface of the earth.

But even if they did fit, the land would already be occupied by their dead ancestors. In fact, the number of humans that would have died over the past three million years is so large that we should see mountains of human bones everywhere. Why don’t we? We should also see mountains of animal bones everywhere. Why don’t we?

The conditions we see on earth today match the Biblical account perfectly, and laugh in the face of the evolutionary account.

Jellyfish Fossils

There are Jellyfish fossils in Wisconsin– hundreds of them. The problem for evolutionists and their gazillion-year-old earth fairy tale is that these jellyfish are in sediment layers that allegedly took millions of years to form. A jellyfish can be 98% water, and has no skeleton. Jellyfish do not last millions of years.

By the way, jellyfish that are 500 million years old must yield some wonderful evolutionary insight, right? Just think of all the wonderful adaptations that evolution must have added to the jellyfish in 500 million years!

“Medusae exhibit features nearly identical to those observed in modern scyphozoan strandings, including impressions of subumbrellar margins and gastrovascular cavities.” ~ GeologyScienceWorld.org

Translation: The fossil Jellyfish found in Wisconsin, allegedly 500 million years old, show no evolutionary difference whatsoever from the jellyfish of today (of course). Yet, people swallow the fairy tale of evolution hook, line, and sinker. Among American men, I could more easily find a competent conversation about football, golf, or barbeque grills than the fairy tale their kids are being force-fed in our schools and in our media.

Carbon Dating

The next time someone mentions carbon dating as evidence for an old earth, ask them to explain it. They can’t. But ask them to explain football, and you’ll get a 8-hour seminar going into the most minute detail, which is the problem!

The inventor of carbon dating, Willard Libby, figured out that if you were to start with a brand new earth, it would take 30,000 years for Carbon 14 (C14) to reach an equilibrium amount in the atmosphere. In other words, the amount of C14 being produced would equal the amount of C14 decaying. Well, if the earth is billions of years old, this equilibrium should have been reached billions of years ago. However, we are STILL not at equilibrium!!!

“Radiocarbon is forming 28-37% faster than it is decaying.”

~ R.E. Taylor et al., “Major Revisions in the Pleistocene Age Assignments for North American Human Skeletons by C-14 Accelerator Mass Spectrometry,” American Antiquity, Vol. 50, No. 1, 1985, p. 136-140

This means that the earth is younger than 30,000 years– which supports the Biblical earth age of 6,000 years. But this scientific find does not support the fairy tale of evolution, so it is simply ignored.

So, carbon dating is performed under the false assumption that there is an equilibrium amount of C14 in the atmosphere. Now, since C14 is actually being produced around 1/3rd faster than it is decaying, this puts the age of everything tested under the false assumption of equilibrium C14 at an actual age of just a few thousand years, which again supports the Bible.

Furthermore, when “scientists” do their C14 testing, they don’t simply rely on the results. That would be bad enough since carbon dating is based on a false assumption to begin with. No, it gets worse. “Scientists” take the faulty result of carbon dating and then impose another fallacy upon it, the fallacy of evolution and the geologic column. You’ve probably seen something like this in your science textbooks, presented as undisputed fact:

Geologic Column

This column is fiction (like the Peter Pan story) and is based on the disproved theory of evolution. But evolution is a religion, and religions other than that of the Bible train their followers never to question things! The Bible admonishes its followers to put everything, including the Bible, to the test!

Test everything. ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:20-21

Therefore, the loyal followers of the religion of evolution follow blindly, forcing the square peg of carbon dating into the round hole of the geologic column. If you dare question them, you are shouted down, and Bill Maher makes you the subject of his comedy routine. If the false C14 dates don’t match the false age of the false column, the “scientists” simply discard the date and the test, and continue testing other things until they hit the C14-geologic-column lottery and find a match.

“If a C-14 date supports our theories, we put it in the main text. If it does not entirely contradict them, we put it in a foot note. And if it’s completely ‘out of date’, we just drop it.”

~ T. Save-Soderbergh and I. U. Olsson, “C-14 Dating and Egyptian chronology in Radiocarbon Variations and Absolute Chronology”, Proceedings of the Twelfth Nobel Symposium, New York, 1970

“There are gross discrepancies, the chronology is uneven and relative, and the accepted dates are actually selected dates. This whole blessed thing is nothing but 13th-century alchemy, and it all depends upon which funny paper you read.”

~ Evolutionist Robert E. Lee, “Radiocarbon: ages in error”, Anthropological Journal of Canada, vol. 19(3), 1981, pp. 9-29

The earth is approximately 6,000 years old. We know this from science. When we compare this science to the history and genealogy from the Bible, we get a perfect match. Remember, God is the one who made the seven-day week when he created the world as recorded in Genesis. Seven is God’s number of perfection. So, we are at the 6,000 year mark in history, and the Bible teaches that Jesus will rule on the earth for 1,000 years upon his return. That’s a 7,000-year duration of the fallen universe before God burns it up and creates a new uncorrupted universe in which his followers will be with him for all eternity (no, the Bible does not teach that heaven is forever, heaven is a temporary holding facility). So, what does 7,000 years have to do with a complete 7-day week?

For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by… ~ Psalm 90:4

But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years , and a thousand years are like a day. ~ 2 Peter 3:8

It is late Saturday night, and Jesus will return at midnight. When he returns, he will personally battle specific nations that the Bible says will be lined up against God’s people, Israel. In a mark of prophetic accuracy that distinguishes the Bible from all other books on earth, these exact nations are lined up against Israel, just as the prophecies foretold– as the clock ticks toward midnight.

The Bible is always proven true.
