Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
How old is the universe? Evolutionary scientists talk about how radiometric dating methods prove the universe and the earth are billions of years old. Let’s look at all the methods scientists could use. There are well over 100 methods available! There are thousands of scientists who prefer other methods that offer younger ages for our world and universe.
Those few methods—out of over 100—that evolutionists prefer are not very exact. Sometimes evolutionists will actually get a negative age for something using one of their preferred methods. In other words, the same method that shows that some object is a billion years old may show that some other object doesn’t even exist yet!
The fact is, more dating methods prove, just as scientifically, that the world is less than 500 years old than prove it is more than a billion years old. Of over 100 methods we know of— giving results of anywhere from 100 years to billions of years— 15% of all methods give a date of between 6,000 and 10,000 years for the age of the universe. That is a very powerful statistical argument for a young creation!
Job 9:7-8 “Which commandeth the sun, and it riseth not; and sealeth up the stars. Which alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea. ”
‘Space is full of mysteries. Those who think that the universe is millions or billions of years old have more mysteries to solve than Bible-believing Christians do.
One of these is the mystery of a star named Sirius B. This mystery is so great for evolutionists that it was one of the main topics of discussion at a scientific symposium at Louisiana State University in 1978.
Records of Egyptian astronomers dating back to 2,000 BC describe Sirius B as a red star. The Roman senator Cicero, writing in 50 BC, also said Sirius B was red. And Seneca described Sirius as being redder than Mars. And in 150 AD, Ptolemy, one of the most famous astronomers in history, listed Sirius as one of the six red stars.
There can be no question that Sirius was red. Today, Sirius B is a white dwarf star. That’s a problem because according to modern evolutionary astronomy, it should take at least 100,000 years for a red giant star to collapse into a white dwarf star.
2 Peter 3:5-6 “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…”
‘How old is the Earth? If we rule out scriptural history, we are limited to determining the age of the Earth from appearances. Appearances can be deceptive.
Let’s say I wanted to compare the amount of dissolved aluminum in the oceans with the rate at which it is being delivered to the oceans by rivers. Using this method, I could prove that the Earth is only about 100 years old! You would doubt my results if I told you that. I could respond by checking how much iron is dissolved in the oceans and how long it would have taken the rivers to deliver it. This time I can prove that the Earth is 140 years old.
That’s one of the problems with trying to work out the age of the Earth without a guide. There is no shortage of information and methods. In fact, there is so much information that you can’t tell the sense from the nonsense!
Today, evolutionists say that they know the Earth is about 4.5 billion years old. Back in 1900, they were sure that the Earth was between 400 and 500 million years old. Fifty years before that, they were very sure that the Earth was between 400,000 and 500,000 years old. In the last two centuries, scientists have been positive about ages for the Earth that differ by over 1,000%!
‘We’re living in strange times, and if you believe the Covid-19 vaccination programme is working because the authorities on the television tell you that it is, then you must surely find it extremely strange that the UK is in the middle of a third wave in the middle of summer? Especially when you consider that in summer 2020 Covid-19 deaths flat-lined to zero even though a Covid-19 injection was not available.
The report provides an array on data on testing, quarantining, vaccinations, cases, hospitalisations, and deaths but it doesn’t get very interesting until you read Table 15 which covers the number of Covid-19 positive cases by week and vaccination status.
Interesting because it shows that the majority of confirmed cases are now among the vaccinated population. In the most recent week from 28th August to 3rd September 2021 the report shows that there were 20,744 confirmed cases among the unvaccinated population, who are more likely to be tested for the simple reason they have not been vaccinated.
But it also shows that there were 5,508 confirmed cases among the partly vaccinated population, and 16,810 cases among the fully vaccinated population – two populations who are least likely to be tested due to be being vaccinated.
Genesis 2:7 “And the LORD God formed man [of] the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”
‘It’s behind your refrigerator and under your bed. It’s part of the air you breathe. While dust is common, it’s not commonplace at all.
Much of the dust in our everyday lives is nothing more than tiny particles of skin, clothing, carpeting – just pieces of everyday life floating in the air. Studies of dust particles reveal that most dust is soil. However, a second common dust – even a thousand miles from the sea – is salt, driven into the wind by the waves. This salt helps form the clouds that bring us rain. The next most common forms of natural dust are volcanic eruptions and forest fires. Transatlantic winds pick up the dust of the Sahara and sweep it across the ocean where enough of it lands in Miami to sometimes give the rain a light pink color.
Not only does your home have dust from all over the world, there’s probably also some from outer space. Ten thousand tons of disintegrating meteorites and comets rain down on the Earth every year. You can even identify some of this dust by running a magnet through the dust in a rain gutter. Most of the magnetic particles that stick to the magnet are probably from space. In addition, some dust is alive, made up of pollen, fungus spores and even dormant bacteria, hoping to land on a good place to grow.
‘It had to happen. Science has evolved from Science to Science Fiction…sort of Science but not really. We’re told that even tho we know masks don’t work, Science Fiction says it does. Just ask the politicians. We know that lockdowns don’t work, but Science Fiction says it does. Just ask the politicians. Science says natural immunity is best but Science Fiction says it isn’t. Just ask the politicians.
So let’s explore what is Science and Science Fiction.’
Genesis 1:31a “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.”
‘Scientists often model the spread of such pathogens in order to predict how they may become precursors of an epidemic. But scientists at the Carnegie Mellon University have been studying how such models are affected or break down if the pathogen mutates. However, such mutation might be random and, hence, difficult to predict.
It is interesting that their mathematical models work not only for epidemics but also for the spread of misinformation or fake news. Their math appears sound, but their use of English less so. One researcher said, “Traditional models that don’t consider evolutionary adaptations fail at predicting the probability of the emergence of an epidemic.” There is a great danger that using such language will cause their research to be used to try to validate the theory of evolution by a process of bait and switch. Misinformation, for example, has indeed evolved from true information, in the broad meaning of the word “evolved”. In other words, it has changed. Similarly, the mutated virus has changed.
During this Wuhan virus scamdemic we are told to follow the science. However, they only mean “follow THEIR science”. Well, when it comes to the past, as for me I will follow the Bible which I am assured will lead me in the right way rather than the anti-god “science falsely so called“!
2 Peter 3:6 “Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:”
‘It is often fascinating to look at scientific articles about alleged conditions in deep-time geological timescales. Surprisingly, some of these events can make sense – even though we do not accept the presuppositions behind the deep-time calculations.
One example of the above would be an article on a popular science website suggesting that there was a time in deep history when the entire surface of the Earth was covered with water. The article dates this at 3.2 billion years ago; yet, even this makes a sort of sense when we consider that what they really mean is that this watery epoch occurred before most of the world’s fossilization. As creationists, we interpret most of the world’s fossils as having formed during the Flood, so evidence of a watery covering before these fossils makes sense, even though we are using a much shorter timescale.
Scientists examining rock samples in Western Australia have looked at the comparative quantities of the three main isotopes of oxygen, which have atomic masses of 16, 17, and 18. It is well-known that the relative amounts of these isotopes can be used as proxy measurements from which to calculate temperature. The rock samples suggest a global ocean with 0.4% 18O. This would suggest a completely ice-free world ocean, where all continents would be submerged.
