|The Wild Idea that Huge Amounts of Time Make the Impossible Happen Led to a Desire for an Old Earth.|
If you have not read Stories Versus Truth, you may want to read that before reading this.
Ages of Time + Impossibility
Many Christians have lost their faith because of ungodly speculations regarding the age of the Earth. They listen to those who speak out of the human mind rather than the mind of God and the ungodly speculations that put death before sin, eliminate the world-wide flood and replace it with millions of years, and eliminate the creation and replace it with billions of years--these kinds of speculations destroy their faith. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the utterance of God. If death is before sin, then sin does not cause death. If sin does not cause death, that destroys the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
This is not a claim that the Earth is definitely about 6,000 years old. Even though a plain reading of Scripture seems to indicate a young Earth, we can't even deny the possibility that God could have done something that Scripture doesn't hint at and that has left no scientific evidence. It is possible. It just is not worth the time to think about it.
This wild idea that huge amounts of time make the impossible happen led to a desire for an old earth. And that desire has spawned many circular-reasoning-based dating methods (like carbon-14 dating). By the way, all dating methods are based on circular reasoning. Since evolutionists think that an old earth helps their case, they only talk about the few dating methods that they can manipulate to appear to prove that the earth is very old--they disregard the many methods that indicate a relatively young earth when they use their favorite unproven and speculative assumptions.
Ungodly people are forced to hold on tightly to some basic presuppositions. These presuppositions are just simple-minded assumptions. They are filters and a way to censor out any information that supports the existence of God. They set up a web of rules to filter out God. They will only accept those things that conform to Naturalism, materialism, and uniformitarianism. Naturalism claims that God does nothing. Materialism claims that there is no God or spiritual realm. Uniformitarianism claims that there was not creation and that there was no violent worldwide flood, as the Bible and numerous other historical accounts record. Whatever they observe that does not conform to this complex filter is censored. The way that it is censored can take several forms. The ungodly may boldly proclaim that, though the data appears to support God's version and refute the version of the ungodly, yet it still must be interpreted to mean just the opposite of what it does mean. A backup method that ungodly people use is to prophecy that in the future, science will be able to explain what they see as an anomaly. If that fails, they will hide the data, set it aside, or lie to keep the public from knowing the truth. The data clearly demolishes the story of the ungodly and clearly supports the reality of the Creator God, His Bible, and His abiding Presence in His people. When confronted with the obvious, a closed-minded ungodly person says, "I can't understand it." They are willingly ignorant because they refuse to hold God in their knowledge. The reality is that these people, for whatever reason, don't what to know the Creator. They don't want to truly know Jesus, their Creator.
Watch the following videos that expose the fact that the so-called "science" that is being taught in our schools using tax dollars is based on a practice of ignoring the evidence. The reason that the evidence is ignored is because or an irrational belief in Evolutionism and the ages required to support Evolutionism. No one teaches how dating methods really work.
The Second Law of Thermodynamics discredits these ideas. In other words, these ideas go against the Second Law of Thermodynamics, which is one of the most basic laws of science.
There is plenty of evidence for a young Earth and a recent creation:
