“So firmly does the modern geologist believe in evolution up from simple organisms to complex ones over huge time spans, that he is perfectly willing to use the theory of evolution to prove the theory of evolution [p.128] … one is applying the theory of evolution to prove the correctness of evolution. For we are assuming that the oldest formations contain only the most primitive and least complex organisms, which is the base assumption of Darwinism … [p.127] If we now assume that only simple organisms will occur in old formations, we are assuming the basic premise of Darwinism to be correct. To use, therefore, for dating purposes, the assumption that only simple organisms will be present in old formations is to thoroughly beg the whole question. It is arguing in a circle. [p.128]” (Arthur E Wilder-Smith, Man’s Origin, Man’s destiny: Harold Shaw Publishers, 1968, pp127-8)
When it rains, 30% of the water runs into the oceans. As it runs in it brings with it not only salt, it brings with it soil. The mountains are eroding; everything is washing away.
At the current rate of erosion, the continents will be flat in 14 million years.
In addition, the oceans are filling in with sediments and there is only enough sediment out there for a few thousand years. If the fossils are really millions of years old we have a problem because the continents would have eroded away 5 times since the dinosaurs were here. How come we still find their bones on land?
No erosion rate proves it is not billions of years old.
The simple fact is, there is overwhelming evidence to demonstrate that this is a young earth, which anyone could have deduced from reading their Bible.
“In most people’s minds, fossils and Evolution go hand in hand. In reality, fossils are a great embarrassment to Evolutionary theory and offer strong support for the concept of Creation. If Evolution were true, we should find literally millions of fossils that show how one kind of life slowly and gradually changed to another kind of life. But missing links are the trade secret, in a sense, of palaeontology. The point is, the links are still missing. What we really find are gaps that sharpen up the boundaries between kinds. It’s those gaps which provide us with the evidence of Creation of separate kinds. As a matter of fact, there are gaps between each of the major kinds of plants and animals. Transition forms are missing by the millions. What we do find are separate and complex kinds, pointing to Creation.” (Dr Gary Parker Biologist/palaeontologist and former ardent Evolutionist.)
