Part 3 – It’s a Young Earth After All

jesus-watching-over-world

New scientific discoveries are pointing to a much younger earth. An Earth that is 6,000 to 10,000 years old. This post is the third and last in the series showing still more evidence for a young earth.

Cosmic Dust: There is a constant rate of cosmic dust particles entering the earth’s atmosphere from space and then settling to the earth’s surface. According to NASA, there are 200 million tons of dust coming to earth every year. If the earth were 4.6 billion years old as evolutionists claim, there would be a layer of meteoritic dust nearly a half mile in thickness over the entire world. The same would be true of the moon. In fact, one of the concerns before the moon landing was that the astronauts would sink into the dust upon landing on the moon. Of course, that didn’t happen, which speaks of a very young moon, earth, and universe.  (G.S. Hawkins, Ed., Meteor Orbits and Dust, published by NASA, 1976)

Evolutionists had long held to the fact that the earth and moon are about the same age. It is believed, by many, that the Earth and its moon are billions of years old. If that were true, the moon would by now have built up a 20-60 mile layer of dust on it! Continue reading

Part 2 – It’s a Young Earth After All

New scientific discoveries are pointing to a much younger earth. One that is 6,000 to 10,000 years old. This is the second post in this series showing the evidence for a young earth.

The faint young sun paradox: The Sun derives energy by the thermonuclear conversion of hydrogen into helium. Over the Sun’s lifetime, the thermonuclear reactions would, according to theory, gradually change the composition of the core of the Sun and alter the Sun’s overall physical structure. Because of this process, the Sun would gradually grow brighter with age. Thus, if the Sun is indeed 4.6 billion years old, it should have brightened by nearly 40% over this time. This means that if billions of years were true, the sun would have been much fainter in the past. However, there is no evidence that the sun was fainter at any time in the earth’s history. Astronomers call this the ‘faint young sun paradox’, but it is no paradox at all if the sun is only as old as the Bible says—about 6,000 years.

Evolutionists believe that life appeared on the earth about 3.8 billion years ago. But if that timescale were true, the sun would be 25% brighter today than it was back then. This implies that the earth would have been frozen at an average temperature of –3ºC. However, most paleontologists believe that, if anything, the earth was warmer in the past.

It’s a Young Earth After All

Image https://byhisgrace211.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/god-loves-you_1_.gifThe standard secular timeline is that the earth is some 4.6 billion years old. The theory of an old earth is in direct contrast to what the Bible teaches. The Bible gives us a chronological and genealogical history of people and events beginning from the time of creation, throughout history, making the earth a little over 6000 years old. An old earth is important for the evolutionists. They believe that given enough time, anything is possible, even evolution. There is a lot of controversy over the various dating methods; many have been shown to be in error by millions of years. I will be deal with these in later posts.

New scientific discoveries are pointing to a much younger earth. One that is 6,000 to 10,000 years old. I will be posting many of these over the next month starting with the following:

The Shrinking Sun: For the past one hundred and fifty years, astronomers have made regular measurements of the diameter of the sun. These measurements have shown that the sun is shrinking at the rate of five feet per hour. At its rate of shrinkage, as little as 50,000 years ago the sun would have been so large that our oceans would boil. 100,000 years ago the sun would have been twice its present size.But in far less time than 50,000 years, life here would have ceased to exist. Studies have shown that if the size of the sun or the earth’s distance from it, were either slightly greater or smaller, life on Earth could not exist.

Science and The Bible VS Evolution

Displaying pixabay.comOn several recent posts, there have been many that believe in evolution, that have made comments against what I have written or against the comments Christians have posted. It is clear that they think that if you believe in creation, then you don’t believe in science. That is not true. Science has made our lives better and easier in many ways. Certainly, much of what I was posting from the Bible concerning nature, medical, sanitation, and the universe would be considered scientific. There have been many great scientists that believed in creation and the Bible. They saw no conflict between the two. Scientists such as Isaac Newton, Leonardo Da Vinci, Francis Bacon, Samuel Morse, Blaise Pascal, Albert Einstein, and Galileo, just to name a few.

Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind.“ – Albert Einstein, 1941

Evolution, on the other hand, is a scientific theory that has never been proven but has been taught in our universities, as if it was a proven fact. Tens of thousands of people believe evolution is a proven fact, simply because that is what they were taught. Most students accept anything their professor say as absolute truth.

Physicist Mark Singham, speaking on the trust that college students have for their professors and in what they are being taught.

“And I use that trust to effectively brainwash them…….We only introduce arguments and evidence that supports the currently accepted theories and omit or gloss over any evidence to the contrary.”

Not all scientists believe in evolution. The number that is rejecting evolution is growing every day. There are roughly one thousand scientists that align themselves with the Institute for Creation Research. No new scientific papers are being published that would support evolution. However, there is a constant flow of papers being published that contain new discoveries that show evolution is impossible.

    “I could find not a single published scientific paper reporting the evidence that supports the fundamental requirement of evolution that new meaningful genetic information arises by chance. Instead, I have found much-published data showing that it is impossible for new purposeful genetic information of any significance for evolution to arise by chance.” (Dr. John Ashton, Evolution Impossible)

      “The new studies in molecular science are showing that each class of species at a molecular level is unique, isolated, and unlinked by intermediates. Thus molecules, like fossils, have failed to provide the elusive intermediates so long sought by evolutionary biology.” (Michael Denton, Evolution: A Theory in Crisis)

Science will disprove evolution

Part 5 – Supernatural Facts in the Bible

Supernatural Facts of the Bible proving the Scriptures were God inspired

In Genesis, God said that male babies should be circumcised when they are eight days old. Genesis 17:12 “For the generations to come every male among you who is eight days old must be circumcised,”  Medical science has now discovered that this is the day that the coagulating factor in the blood, called prothrombin, is the highest. It reaches its peak on the eighth day, then drops. Medical science has also discovered that this is when the human body’s immune system is at its peak.

 Today we are told that eating fat is bad for our hearts and can lead to prostate cancer. God said not to eat fat thousands of years ago Leviticus 7:22-23 ‘The Lord said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites: ‘Do not eat any of the fat of cattle, sheep or goats.” God also instructed the Israelites not to eat pork; we know that pork has to be thoroughly cooked because it can carry parasites. God gave his people many dietary instructions. Although we can see the reasons for them today, God’s people at the time, had to trust him for a reason.

 Leviticus 13:46 “As long as they have the disease they remain unclean. They must live alone; they must live outside the camp.”  God gave the Israelite’s laws concerning quarantine 3500 years ago. Modern man did not instigate laws of quarantine until the seventeenth century. Millions of lives could have been saved during the black plague alone if people had listened to God’s command concerning quarantine.

The Bible is proven accurate though it’s prophecy that has already been fulfilled. And by the archaeology finds that have documented its accuracy. Nearly one-quarter of the Bible is made up of prophecy.

There are approximately 2500 predictions in the Bible. About 2000 of these predictions have already been fulfilled. Many down to minor details. More are being fulfilled as we watch the approach of the end times. The remaining prophecies will be fulfilled during and after the tribulation.

None of the books from the world’s counterfeit religions have even dared to make such prophecies as the Bible contains, for who but God, knows the future.

Archaeology has continued to prove the Bible true. Historical scholars claimed there was no proof that King Herod, Pontius Pilate, Nebuchadnezzar, Belshazzar,  Hezekiah, Darius, and King David ever existed. But archaeological discoveries in recent years have proved they and many more biblical characters did exist. Archaeology has never proved the Bible false, rather it has substantiated the scriptures.  Archaeologists continue to find cities and places mentioned in the Bible, such as in 2004 when they discovered the Siloam Pool where Jesus healed the blind man. And in September of 2015, the biblical city of Sodom was discovered. Excavations show that the city came to a sudden fiery end, just as portrayed in the Bible. In fact, all archaeology finds have agreed with the historical biblical accounts as recorded in the Bible. There has not been a single artifact or discovery made that would disprove what is written in The Word of God.

 An honest look at the scriptures can leave no doubt, but that the writings were God inspired.

Part 4 – Supernatural Facts of The Bible

Supernatural Facts of the Bible proving the Scriptures were God inspired

The Ark’s design was thousands of years ahead of its time. (Genesis 6:14-16) The Ark was to be 450 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 45 feet high. It was to have three decks with a combined area of 101,250 square feet, and a capacity of over one and a half million cubic feet. It was a vessel of over 43,000 tons, and nearly equal in size to the Titanic.

 In 1609 a Holland company built a ship after the pattern of the Ark. It revolutionized the shipbuilding industry. Today most ships are still built to similar proportions. There is no way that Noah would have had the knowledge to build the Ark, without the divine instructions from God. The vessel that Noah built was very different and much larger than boats of that era. The boats of Noah’s time were small flat-bottomed boats powered by oars or a combination of oars and a fixed sail.

 In comparison, the Ark that Noah built would be much closer in design and size to the Titanic, than to the boats of his time.  Continue reading

Scientists Admit: The Fossil Record Doesn’t Show Evolution Has Occurred

The fossil record in the sedimentary rocks is supposed to show the evolution of life to more advanced and complex life forms, over vast spans of time. Evolutionist looks to the fossils as proof that evolution took place. As Geologist Carl Dunbar stated:

“Fossils provide the only historical, documentary evidence that life has evolved from simpler to more and more complex forms.”

However, in the billions of fossils, there is not a single example of one species transitioning into another. There are no transitional fossils. Even the evolutionist admit that there are none. I include several quotes by evolutionists later in this post.
