A Five-part series on the Age of the Earth
Since we do in fact exist, then the subject of our origin is an issue of truth rather than simply “science” or “religion.” And in this regard, the age of the Earth is of utmost importance. For if the Earth is less than 20,000 years old, or even a million years old, then the impersonal forces of nature could only have played a very minor part in how we — and other life-forms — came to be. It is also a fact that the same people who reject the concept, and/or thought that a Creator / God made them, claim that if the Earth is billions of years old then nature, time and chance is all that’s needed to explain our existence: even though the simplest living things are more complex than anything man has yet Designed and Created.

So it is that our beliefs on the earth’s age are often directly or indirectly related to who or what we give credit for our existence: either a Creator who made life, and us, or the impersonal forces of nature, time and chance. Thus it is that those who Reject the concept that a Creator / God made them are compelled to come up with an alternate reason for their existence — and why they must believe that the Earth is billions of years old: regardless of what the evidence actually is, and in most cases not even taking a few minutes of their time to look at it.
For if God is who He says, then He doesn’t need tens of millions of years to create life, and us. And in this regard we are told that He made the first man from the dust of the ground — as opposed to (from) an ape or ape-man, and independent of other life forms: the same way He claims to have made the animals and birds: Genesis 2:7 and 2:19.
Everyone knows that a Frog can’t transform into a Prince in a short amount of TIME, but if millions and millions of years can be thrown into the mix, then (we are told that) the impossible becomes possible, and that in only 500 million years, the possible becomes likely, or so the story goes …
Evolutionists say that a belief in God is “outside the realm of science,” yet they often fail to mention that science also can’t “disprove” the existence of a Creator / God either. And since they can’t disprove the existence of a Creator, nor come anywhere close to showing how life began, then they can’t declare with any degree of certainty how we, nor any other life-form came about: meaning that they also have a ‘religion’ of their own, i.e. atheism or the belief that nobody (of importance) made us: other than the impersonal (and normally destructive) forces of nature.
In this regard, “scientists” can’t even demonstrate how to make all 20 amino acids, nor even the most simple protein, which consists of only 9 amino acids. Nor have they informed the public that water is also not the hero that some biologists have made it out to be — since it breaks down DNA, RNA, proteins, and complex sugars.
The fact is that many people are not satisfied with what they have been told (to believe) by a media that has chosen to side with so-called “scientists”: both in regard to the earth’s purported (old) age, and the concept that life could make itself from dead matter and chemicals (by accident) — if only given enough time. In fact, those who promote such beliefs rarely, if ever, acknowledge the existence of contradictory evidence. And in this regard there is lots of science-based evidence to indicate that the earth is less than one million years old. Much of this evidence is discussed in the following five articles.
This evidence suggests that the continents separated rapidly and that they are NOT at present still moving apart.
Such as that — as far as we know — explosions do not produce order but rather disorder. In addition, the Big Bang does not, and cannot, explain where the matter came from that supposedly exploded, therefore this theory is not based on empirical / testable science, but is rather a philosophical (or religious) belief that cannot be demonstrated, much less proven in a scientific sense.
Including evidence that seems to confirm that almost all of the Earth’s flat-lying sedimentary layers were laid down at the same time, one after the other, in a short amount of time. This evidence suggests that even multiple massive sedimentary layers are best explained by a Worldwide Flood and Catastrophism, as opposed to slow deposition over eons of time. Our related article on Fossil Trees makes the same observation (i.e. of a Worldwide Flood) only in more detail.
