Radioisotope Dating of Rocks

The radioisotope methods—long touted as irrefutably dating the earth as countless millions of years old—have repeatedly failed to give reliable and meaningful absolute ages for Grand Canyon rocks.

Folded Rock Layers

In the walls of the Grand Canyon, we can see that the whole horizontal sedimentary strata sequence was folded without fracturing. The only way to explain how these sandstone and limestone beds could be folded, as though still pliable, is to conclude they were deposited during the Genesis Flood, just months before they were folded.

The Mineral Carbon

Carbon is found in all living things. Like a Swiss Army knife, carbon is extremely versatile. Add carbon to iron, and you get steel. Add carbon to hydrogen and oxygen, and you can produce everything from alcohol to sugar and gasoline.

Creation and Geologic Layers

In one day, our infinitely wise, all-powerful Creator laid down some dirt layers 30 miles thick that are now deep in the geologic record and foundational to the landmasses we live on. These provide us with an abundance of resources, which we use to worship and serve Him for His purposes and glory.
