When it comes to the age of the earth, the overwhelming observable evidence all around us, is that this earth, is a young earth. Now, I do not particularly believe that 6,000 years is a brief period of time, but it appears very young when juxtaposed against the echoed backdrop of evolutionism’s ‘billions of years’ timeline.
That being said, even the vast oil deposits and the great pressure they are still under, point to the Biblical Timeline as they offer a limiting or indicating factor to the age of the earth.
At some point, most of us have watched a cartoon, program or movie that depicted an oil strike. It is always recognizable by the black oily geyser that shoots up out of the earth. The reason that the oil shoots out of the surface of the earth like that is because it is trapped inside rock under an enormous amount of pressure. In fact, it is not unusual to learn that many oil wells can have upwards of 20,000 pounds per square inch or psi! The professionals who study and examine the rock levels above the oil state that the rock cannot handle that level of pressure beyond 10,000 to 15,000 years.
Therefore, if evolutionism is true, why haven’t the rocks cracked yet and the pressure leaked already?
I have a theory about that…
6,000 years ago, God created the heavens and the earth.
4,400 years ago there was a worldwide flood in the days of Noah.
As plants, animals and people perished in the deluge, pockets of the enormous biomass became trapped beneath the rock and is precisely why we have immense fossil, coal, gas and oil deposits found all over the world.
The fact that the oil is still pressurized makes perfect sense to the Bible-believing Creationist.
