The Earth and the universe were created less than 10,000 years ago. This can be proven in 5 different ways. Geology: Radiocarbon in Diamonds, Geology: Tightly Folded Rock Strata, Biology: Dinosaur Soft Tissue, Anthropology: Human Population Growth, and finally Astronomy: Recession of the Moon. All of these pieces of evidence show that the world couldn’t possibly be billions of years old. Not even a million years old!
Evidence 1 Geology: Radiocarbon in Diamonds: Carbon dating is something scientists use to “prove an old earth” by seeing how old the Radiocarbon (carbon 14) is in certain substances. The flaw in that though, is that “carbon 14 cannot remain naturally in substances for millions of years because it decays relatively rapidly.”(From the website ‘answers in Genesis’) When scientists used carbon dating to find the age of a few diamonds that they thought to be a few billion years old, they found that the significant levels of radiocarbon was only 55,000 years old max! That’s nowhere close to 4.5 billion years!
Evidence 6 Geology: Tightly Folded Rock Strata: When solid rock is bent, it normally cracks and breaks. Rock can only bend without fracturing when it is softened by extreme heating (which causes recrystallization) or when the sediments have not yet fully hardened. There are numerous locations around the world (including the famous Grand Canyon) where we observe massive sections of strata that have been tightly folded, without evidence of the sediments being heated. This is a major problem for evolutionists who believe these rock layers were laid down gradually over vast eons of time, forming the geologic record. However, it makes perfect sense to creationists who believe these layers were formed rapidly in the global, catastrophic Flood described in Genesis.
Evidence 3 Biology: Dinosaur Soft Tissue: In recent years, there have been many findings of “wondrously preserved” biological materials in supposedly ancient rock layers and fossils. One discovery that has left evolutionists scrambling is a fossilized Tyrannosaurus rex femur with flexible connective tissue, branching blood vessels, and even intact cells! According to evolutionists, these dinosaur tissues are more than 65 million years old, but laboratory studies have shown that there is no known way—and likely none possible—for biological material to last more than thousands of years. Could it be that evolutionists are completely wrong about how recently these dinosaurs lived?
Evidence 4 Anthropology: Human Population Growth: We can calculate the years of human existence with the population doubling every 150 years (a very conservative figure) to get an estimate of what the world’s population should be after any given period of time. A biblical age of the earth (about 6,000 years) is consistent with the number of people alive today. In contrast, even a conservative evolutionary age of 50,000 years comes out to a staggering, impossibly high figure of 10 to the 99th power (greater than the number of atoms in the universe). So the idea of humans being alive for tens of thousands of years is absurd!
Evidence 5 Astronomy: Recession of the Moon: The moon has an odd effect on earth. It affects the tide and pulls the waters in different directions. Because of this, the moon drifts farther and farther away from earth. Based on gravitational forces and the current rate of recession, we can calculate how much the moon has moved away over time. If the earth is only 6,000 years old there is no problem with the moon’s movement. In that amount of time, the earth would have only moved about 800 feet.
However, scientists believe that the moon is over 4 billion years old. This means, that about 1.5 million years ago the moon would have been touching earth… How would that have worked? Each of these topics breaks the idea of evolution. It just doesn’t work. Scientists want to make up theories that don’t have any fact behind them and call them truth. There are so many flaws with evolution and these topics only scratch the surface of the mistakes. In conclusion, the earth is only 10,000 years max, due to geology, biology, anthropology and astronomy. The key factors to the Earth and universe. If you look with your eyes open you’ll see all the ways the earth couldn’t possibly be more than ten thousand years old. You can look up the website “Answers and genesis” if you want to learn more! 🙂
