“Eighty to eighty-five percent of earth’s land surface does not have even 3 geological periods appearing in ‘correct’ consecutive order … it becomes an overall exercise of gargantuan special pleading and imagination for the evolutionary-uniformitarian paradigm to maintain that there ever were geologic periods.” (John Woodmorappe, geologist)
Did you know that the oldest living organism on earth is a tree?
The oldest living organism in the world is a tree called the Bristlecone Pine found in Southern California as depicted below for us in Allyn and Bacon Biology Science Textbook.
That is one old tree!
But I have a question for you.
If the earth is millions of years old, why do we not have an older tree someplace? Why is the oldest tree only 4,300 years old?
Well, I have a theory about that.
I believe, according to the Bible, that about 6,000 years ago, God created the heaven and the earth.
4,400 years ago there was a Flood that destroyed the world, so the oldest tree should be less than 4,400 years old.
And look at that…it is! Amazing!
