One reason people give for rejecting a young universe is that they think it somehow limits God. After all, what was He doing all that time before creation?
Shy, gentle, and easy to care for—sound like the ideal pet?
We find plenty of evidence for the earth’s youth—in its geology, biology, paleontology, and even astronomy.
If sediments have been accumulating on the seafloor for three billion years, the seafloor should be choked with sediments many miles deep.
In many mountainous areas, rock layers thousands of feet thick have been bent and folded without fracturing. How can that happen if they were laid down separately over hundreds of millions of years?
Ask the average layperson how he or she knows that the earth is millions or billions of years old, and that person will probably mention the dinosaurs.
Evidence now supports astronomers’ belief that the sun’s power comes from the fusion of hydrogen into helium deep in the sun’s core, but there is a huge problem.
The earth is surrounded by a magnetic field that protects living things from solar radiation. Without it, life could not exist.
Helium diffuses so rapidly that all the helium should have leaked out of rocks in less than 100,000 years.
Carbon-14 (or radiocarbon) is a radioactive form of carbon that scientists use to date fossils. But it decays quickly.
Comets can’t survive billions of years.
If the world’s oceans have been around for three billion years as evolutionists believe, they should be filled with vastly more salt than the oceans contain today.
Scientists were surprised to find that DNA was still intact after a supposed 250 million years.
Though the Bible is our foundation for understanding earth history, scientific “evidences” have a place.
