We've all been taught our beloved Earth is billions of years
old. But is it really? There are many, many things on this
planet that simply cannot be explained by anything other than a few thousand
year old Earth (see below for examples).
Time is not constant across the
God gave us Einstein and others to discover that time is not
constant across the Universe. Its not even constant on this Earth.
Ongoing experiments with Atomic Clocks prove that time ticks faster at 5,000
ft than it does at sea level. This is scientific evidence that time
isn't constant across the Universe, depending not only on gravity, but also
relative motion. Gravity affects the perception of time, and so does
Modern Physics Shows That Six Day Creation is Possible
Exodus 20:11 makes one of the most amazing statements of
the Bible: "In six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea and all that is
in them, and rested the seventh day." It is hard to imagine a clearer statement
defining how long God took in creating the entire universe. However, this simple
statement has presented a seemingly impossible dilemma for Christians and Jews. On one
hand, modern cosmology teaches that the universe has taken billions of years to
form. On the other hand, if this clear and straightforward statement of the
Bible can not be trusted to mean what it says, how can we know that any
statement of the Bible can be trusted to mean what it says?
This was the dilemma which Dr. Russell Humphreys (physicist
at Sandia National Laboratory) set out to solve as he studied what the Bible
had to say about the formation of our universe. Most people have been taught
that the universe is the result of a gigantic explosion called the "Big
Bang". During this explosive expansion, all the matter of the universe
supposedly expanded outward from a tiny pinpoint. So the Big Bang started at
a "center" where all of the matter exploded outward from the center. So
there is a center and an edge. However, all modern cosmological models start
with the assumption that the universe has neither a center nor an edge
(impossible to imagine) and which is billions of years old at every
location. But this second assumption directly contradicts the first
assumption! Surprisingly, evolutionary physicists do not seem very
concerned about this -- but I sure am!
Rather than start with these arbitrary
assumptions (a universe having no center and no edge), Dr. Humphreys decided to
take the most apparent meaning of the Biblical text and see what model of the
universe developed. He reasoned that if the Bible was inspired by God, as it
claims to be, it should not have to be twisted to be understood. It should have
the same straight forward meaning for a "man on the street", a brilliant
physicist, or a theologian.
The Bible clearly indicates three things about God's
formation of the universe. First, the earth is the center of God's attention in
the universe. By implication, the earth may also be located near the
center-perhaps so man can see the glory of God's creation in every direction.
Second, the universe (both matter and space itself) has been "stretched out".
Third, the universe has a boundary, and therefore it must have a center. If
these three assumptions are plugged into the currently accepted formulas of
physics, and the mathematical crank is turned, we live in a universe in which
clocks tick at different rates depending on your location.
Furthermore, the time
dilation effect would be magnified tremendously as the universe was originally
expanding. As the universe expanded, there was a point at which time was moving
very rapidly at the outer edge and essentially stopped near the center. At this
point in the expansion of the universe, only days were passing near the center,
while billions of years were passing in the heavens. This is the inevitable
conclusion based on our current knowledge of physics and starting with Biblical
assumptions instead of arbitrary ones. Albert Einstein rejected the idea that
the Bible could be literally true. He wrote that, "Through the reading of
popular scientific books I soon reached the convictions that many of the stories
in the Bible could not be true." How ironic that the most ridiculed Biblical
story (about a recent, literal, six day creation of the universe) is exactly the
story which Albert Einstein’s work has shown to be entirely possible. A
comprehensive explanation of Dr. Humphreys work, can be found in his book.

The Fabric of Space
Scientists have known for a long time that space actually
stretches. It stretches much like stretchable fabric, very similar to
nylon panty hose. Have you ever heard the phrase that scientists use,
"the fabric of space"? Did you know the Bible said this long before
scientists understood it?
' It is I who made the
earth and created man upon
it. I stretched out the heavens with My hands ' Isa 45:12
' You have
forgotten the LORD your Maker,
Who stretched out the heavens and
laid the foundations of the earth' Isa 51:13
So the prophet Isaiah used scientific language (space
stretching) to describe
God's creation of the Universe. Since God really did create the Universe
and gave us the Bible to know about our origin and to know about Him, we shouldn't
be surprised to find such clues hidden in His Word. We may
not understand exactly how God created the Universe before Jesus
returns, but its important we understand that He did
create it, and left us the Bible to know how we got here and to know the God who
Young Earth Evidences
Indications of a Young Earth (John MacArthur)
Most things we see in the world around us cannot fit into an old Earth scenario.
The more we dig, study and learn, the more we understand that man and the
animals have only been here a few thousand years.
When I was a young boy, I went on a hike in the mountains in
So. Calif. (near Mt. Baldy) with my father. Along the way I kept noticing
sea shells in the sand and dirt along the walls of the mountain and edge of
the trail. I noticed they looked just like the shells at the beach. Most
of the smallest ones were still whole. I asked my dad about them and he
said that "millions of years ago" this was a sea bottom. Of course he said
this because that was what he was taught. But was it really? Why would a
sea shell that is millions of years old look exactly like a shell I find on
the beach today? Surely something that has been buried in dirt and rock for
millions of years could not possibly be the same as something only 1 year or
10 years old. Surely something laying in and under the dirt for millions of
years would have crumbled into dust millions of years ago. A million years
is is a very long time! I dearly wish I could go back up into those
mountains and get some samples and have them carbon dated. I would have one
from the beach and one from the mountains dated without telling them where
they were from. I'm sure of what the results would be.

hammer doing in cretaceous rock with seashells?
The London Artifact is an iron hammer, surrounded by a solid mass of
cretaceous rock and seashells. The handle was partially PETRIFIED. It was
discovered in London, Texas. Notice the shiny spot on the metal
part. The family who found the hammer filed the metal to see if it
was really metal; the spot has not rusted yet, even though it has
been about forty-five years. Is it really iron? A test was done on
the metal. This hammer contains 96% iron, 2.6% chlorine, and 0.74%
sulfur. There are no bubbles in it at all. Yes, it is iron. The
quality of which equals or exceeds the quality of any iron made
today. Now ask yourself, how does an obviously very old hammer
get embedded into millions of years old cretaceous rock? The only answer is
that cretaceous rock isn't that old at all.
The Bible doesn't tell us much about pre-flood
people, so we should pay close attention to the little it does say. In
Genesis chapter 4, we are given information about the first descendents of Adam.
married two women. The first was named Adah, and the second was
Zillah. Adah gave birth to Jabal, who was the first of those who
raise livestock and live in tents. His brother's name was Jubal, the
first of all who play the harp and flute. Lamech's other wife,
Zillah, gave birth to a son named Tubal-cain. He became an expert
in forging tools of bronze and iron." NLT
So we see that pre-flood people worked with metal.
It says Tubal-cain was an expert. This tells us he was very
good at what he did, and this agrees with and explains the advanced metals found
on Noah's Ark and the London Hammer.

geologic column was invented by evolutionists to fit an imaginary
timescale for the evolution of all life on Earth. The problem is it doesn't exist anywhere in the
world except the text books. If the column really existed, it would nearly 100 miles
deep! The deepest fossils we find are about 1 to 1.5 miles deep. One of the
deepest holes ever dug was only about 5 miles. So how do they get 100 miles of
strata layers? By assuming evolution has happened and putting the various layers of the
sedimentary rock in an evolutionary order. Then they use the geologic
column to prove evolution! That's called circular reasoning. Where in you use
the assumption of something being true to prove it's true. It's the same as
saying "evolution is true because evolution is true". This concept has been
falsified (the column showing animals to be extinct) by what is called living
fossils. One example of a living fossil is the coelacanth fish. This fish was
thought to have gone extinct before the dinosaurs (because of its being found in
the same strata layers as dinosaur fossils). But in the 1930's a fisherman
found coelacanth's still alive living in deep ocean waters. Living fossils are
animals they thought were extinct, but have been found alive. Their reasoning is
they are only found at the bottom of the "supposed" column thus they have died
out. There are so many examples of living fossils other then the coelacanth that
evolutionist just ignore the problem all together. Since that time, over 200
coelacanths have been caught. Now there is no scientific reason to believe
dinosaurs went extinct before man was created.
The bible tells us about a very Great Flood which covered the whole
earth. That would certainly bury
animals in mud (which would later turn to rock) all over the earth,
Dinosaurs included. The geologic column doesn't
show what evolved first but what was buried first. Deep ocean
life, shallow water life, small reptiles, big animals, and then man who
was smart enough to avoid the flooding water as long as possible.
This is why dinosaur fossil skeletons are quite often found in groups.
If you ask the people at the dig how they died, they will candidly tell
you they were buried in a flood (although they believe it was a local
flood). As the flood waters rose, the dinosaurs made higher and
higher ground until there wasn't any left. They would have been
all grouped together as they were finally swept away by mud and water.
this article about how the age of the earth grew and grew and keeps on
growing - in the evolutionist's mind.
The Oldest Living Things
The oldest living thing on earth is either an Irish
Oak or a Bristlecone pine. If we assume a growth rate of one tree ring per year,
then the oldest trees are between 4,500 and 4,767 years old. Because these trees
are still alive and growing, and because we don't yet know how old they will get
before they die, this indicates that something happened around 4,500 to 4,767
years ago which caused the immediate ancestors of these trees to die off.
13,14,15 Note also that it is possible for trees to produce more than one growth
ring per year, which would shorten the above estimated ages of these trees.
Also, with regard to fossil tree rings, the author has been unable to find any
documented instances of fossil trees having more than about 1500 rings. Janelle
says 1700. This is significant because we are told that God (literally) made the
Earth, and all that is in it, only about 1500 - 1800 years before the Worldwide
RINGS -- The giant sequoias of California have no known enemies except
man. And only recently did man (with his saws) have the ability to easily
destroy them. Insects do not bother them, nor even forest fires. They live on,
century after century. Yet the sequoias are never older than about 4,000 years.
These giant redwoods seem to be the original trees that existed in their timber
stands. Sequoia gigantea, in their groves in the Sierra Nevada Mountains,
never have any dead trees ("snags') among them. Unless man cuts them down, there
is no evidence that they ever die!
|"Perhaps the most intriguing of the unanswered questions
regarding longevity in conifers has to do with Sequoia gigantea
trees, which, some believe may enjoy perpetual life in the absence
of gross destruction, since they appear immune to pest attacks . .
Pertinent also is the well-known fact that standing snags of this
species, other than those resulting from factors of gross
destruction, are unknown. Does this mean that shortly preceding 3215
years ago (or 4000 years ago, if John Muir's count was correct) all
the then living giant sequoias were wiped out by some
catastrophe?"--*Edmund Schulman, "Longevity Under Adversity in
Conifers," in Science, March 28, 1934, p. 399.
Nothing can kill a mature sequoia, with the
exception of man and his saws. Yet no sequoias are older than about 4000 years
of age. They date back to the time of the Flood, and no further.
The bristlecone pines of the White Mountains in California and nearby Arizona
are said to be somewhat older. But research by Walter Lammerts, a plant
scientist, has disclosed that the bristlecone pine routinely stops growth during
the dry summer and when both spring and fall are rainy (which is common). It
produces two rings a year. Surely then, the giant redwoods are the oldest living
thing, not the bristlecone pine.
Now if the earth is millions of years old, why
aren't there evidences of older trees, or dead Sequoia trees? The
evolutionist has no answer.
Polonium Halos in Bedrock Granites
within Earth's foundation rocks -- the bedrock granites of the earth -- are
many billions of beautiful microspheres of coloration -- halos -- produced by the
radioactive decay of primordial polonium, which is known to have only a fleeting
The following simple analogy will show how these polonium microspheres -- or
halos -- contradict the evolutionary belief that granites formed as hot magma
slowly cooled over millions of years. To the contrary, this analogy demonstrates
how these halos provide unambiguous evidence of both an almost instantaneous
creation of granites and the young age of the earth.
A speck of polonium in molten rock can be compared to an Alka-Seltzer dropped
into a glass of water. The beginning of effervescence is equated to the moment
that polonium atoms began to emit radioactive particles. In molten rock the
traces of those radioactive particles would disappear as quickly as the
Alka-Seltzer bubbles in water. But if the water were instantly frozen, the
bubbles would be preserved. Likewise, polonium halos could have formed only if
the rapidly "effervescing" specks of polonium had been instantly encased in
An exceedingly large number of polonium halos are embedded in granites around
the world. Just as frozen Alka-Seltzer bubbles would be clear evidence of the
quick-freezing of the water, so are these many polonium halos undeniable
evidence that a sea of primordial matter quickly "froze" into solid granite. The
occurrence of these polonium halos, then, distinctly implies that our earth was
formed in a very short time, in complete harmony with the biblical record of
These "fingerprints of God" have been exhaustively studied by scientist Robert
Gentry for many years. His early papers were actually peer-reviewed and
accepted by the scientific community - until! - yes, until the creation
implications were realized by the evolutionist priesthood. Then his
university computer account was deleted and his papers were censored! It
seems evolutionary science isn't "self correcting" and "open to challenges" as
they so often state.
Every question regarding the validity or implications of the polonium-halo
evidence for creation has been systematically dealt with in our published
reports. Every proposal for
an evolutionary origin of polonium radiohalos has been systematically and
experimentally falsified. No hypothetical, naturalistic scenario has yet been
suggested that can account for Creation's "tiny mystery" of the polonium halo.
Of course, you can find claims to the contrary on the internet and elsewhere.
But if these claims had any real substance, they would have passed peer review
and been published in the open scientific literature. The fact that they have
not been, or have themselves been experimentally falsified, demonstrates the
fact that this unique evidence for Creation still stands unrefuted.

We have been taught that each of the Earth's
strata layers were deposited over millions of years. OK, if that's
true we could never expect to see a tree trunk buried vertically extending
through multiple strata layers, could we? But we do see them - all over
the world. These are called polystrate
trees. Fossils crossing two or more sedimentary layers (strata) are
called poly-strate (many-strata) fossils. Consider how quickly this tree
trunk in Germany must have been buried. Had burial been slow, the tree top would
have decayed. Obviously, the tree could not have grown up through the strata
without sunlight and air. The only alternative is rapid burial. Some polystrate
trees are upside down, which could occur in a large flood. Soon after Mount St.
Helens erupted in 1980, scientists saw trees being buried in a similar way in
the lake-bottom sediments of Spirit Lake. Polystrate tree trunks are found
If the strata layers were deposited only a few
thousand years ago during the Great Flood, then we should expect to see this
phenomenon - and we do! Given this evidence, which is logical to believe?

When I look at the rock formations in the hills and mountains, they look exactly
as I would expect them to look after a world-wide flood. Fossils are found
buried in flood conditions. Fresh looking sea shells are found at the tops of
mountains. Large layers of Rock are bent in ways they only could be if they
were formed when wet. And on an on.
The fact is we weren't here 6000 years ago so we can only speculate as to
what happened. But based on what I have seen with my own eyes I will go with
what the Bible says. I have found the Bible to be completely reliable in all
other things, so why shouldn't I believe God about creation too? Jesus Himself
references Creation, the Creator and Adam and Eve. All of the Great Bible
stories are confirmed on this website. What more do you need?
6,000 year old Earth explained
The following are two chapters from
"Old Earth, why not?"

The “Big Bang” Caused The
Universe Billions Of Years Ago?
||Old-earthers are usually old universe adherents
because they believe the earth and cosmos
were formed billions of years ago. They
say that since stars are multiple trillions of miles
away, billions of years are needed for the starlight to
reach us (so we can see the star); therefore, the distant
stars and galaxies must be billions of years old.
(The forthcoming explanation of a model that superiorly
incorporates astronomical observations is
Russell Humphrey’s book Starlight and Time
The usual old universe logic is seriously flawed because it assumes the universe was “formed” from a
cosmic explosion, a “Big Bang” that caused matter to
expand outward. However, to say “expand outward”
necessitates that there is an inward, a center if you will.
Therefore, as matter expanded (or is expanding) outward,
there remains the center, and therefore, obviously,
the edge of the outward expanded (or possibly
still expanding) matter, also. Old-universers derive this
“Big Bang” conclusion from the assumption that the
universe is boundless, a direct contradiction of the just
stated necessity of a center, and thus, the necessity of
an edge of the matter (an edge of the universe), and so,
a bounded universe, not boundless.
The Big Bang adherents must use their presupposition
of a difficult to imagine (and contradictory),
boundless universe, because if they said there is an
outward edge of matter (a bounded universe), then
they are admitting there is a center. If there is center,
there is then the possibility of gravitational influence
on the expanding matter, and on the speed of light,
and thus, the possibility of much less time than billions
of years for starlight to reach us.
A clock at sea level ticks slower than a clock on
top of a mountain. This is because of a stronger gravitational
pull on the clock at sea level than on the
mountaintop clock, which receives less gravitational
pull, because it is further away from earth’s center of
mass. Now suppose the universe is bounded, as the
evidence suggests, and has expanded outward from
its center. According to Einstein’s Theory of General
Relativity, gravitational time dilation greatly accelerated
rates of star formation (as in aging; that is, clocks
ticking faster, away from gravity), and accelerated the
speed of light. This notion of acceleration is the opposite
of the deceleration of light speed and matter
aging, as they approach a theoretical “black hole”, where matter and light are being
drawn into a gravitational vortex.
There is an expanding invisible gravitation sphere
surrounding a black hole; this sphere is called the event
horizon. As light and matter are drawn to the black
hole, they penetrate the event horizon, at which point
the speed of light and rate of aging of matter drastically
decrease. As more and more matter penetrates
this event horizon, it expands, because the gravitational
pull exerted by the black hole increases as it
gains matter (mass).
Similarly, if the earth’s material density mysteriously
halved (thus halving its mass), the mountain top
clock would speed up, due to less gravity. (So, the clock
would need to descend to a lower location as to slow
back down.) In corollary, if the earth’s density (mass)
were mysteriously doubled, the mountain top clock
would slow down because of more gravitational pull
on it, so the clock would need to be “expanded out”
away from the earth’s center for it to speed back up.
Therefore, as matter moves away from gravity, it ages
(moves toward entropy, randomness), at a greater rate.
This is analogous to what may have happened
during the formation of the universe. Matter and light
expanded out, so the “white hole” (opposite of black
hole) lost mass, and thus, its event horizon collapsed,
as more and more matter escaped out past this collapsing
event horizon. Therefore, while light speed
and matter aging rates drastically decrease when they
approach a black hole event horizon, they sped up
drastically when they escaped out of the white hole
event horizon, during creation. The drastically accelerated
speed of light and aging rates continued until
the event horizon collapsed to zero, and thus, all
matter and light were outside of it, at which point,
the speed of light and rate of aging normalized.
As the event horizon collapsed to zero, coalescence
of expanded matter caused thermonuclear fusion
in the newly formed stars; they aged billions of
years, and light from them traveled at greatly accelerated
velocities (in accordance with the Einstein’s
Theory of General Relatively), until the event horizon
collapsed to zero.
Dr. Russell Humphreys, a renowned
astrophysicist who interpolated this white
hole theory, predicted the Voyager space probe’s measurements
of the magnetic fields of the planets Neptune
His predictions were predicated upon his theory
that a white hole, at creation, was a ball of water two
light years in diameter; at the Creation, God brooded
over “the Deep” (deep translates bottomless water),
as recorded in Genesis 1:2. Then this water-matter
expanded out rapidly, coalesced into stars that aged
billions of “earth time” years, sending light at hyperspeed
to earth, all in a matter of hours (a few days, as
suggested in the Bible) [as measured by a clock on Earth]. Thermonuclear fusion turned
the water-matter into the mineralogy of the planets.
The planets’ compositions resulted from thermonuclearized
water, thus, Humphreys accurately predicted
their composition and their magnetic field
strength. According to Einstein’s theory, and the high probability
that the universe is bounded, the distant stars
could have formed and aged billions of years in a
matter of hours, and the light from them arrived to
earth also in a matter of hours. The starlight did not
need billions of years to reach us, because the speed
of starlight was ultra-accelerated during the expansion
of matter, and the resultant formation of the universe.
Thus a theory, from probably the most revered
physicist in history, provides an excellent framework
with which to explain the development and young
age of the universe.
Supernovas are stars that explode, launching debris
out into space, in all directions. The longer ago a
supernova occurred, the farther away from the explosion
point will the star debris have travelled. This ever
expanding debris field is called a supernova remnant.
If the universe is billions of years old, we should expect
many supernova remnants to be of great diameters, as
to evidence supernovas that happened millions of years
ago. However, all the observed supernova remnants are
so small that the supernovas must have exploded only
a few thousand years ago, not millions.
If the solar system and the galaxies are truly billions
of years old, there should not be any spiral shaped
galaxies. The variable speeds of the stars of
these spirals of stars would have caused them to break
the spiral formation billions of years ago. The spirals
of stars (galaxies) have not dispersed, so the spirals
must be young.
Most astrophysicists think that the fire of the sun
is heat from thermonuclear conversion of hydrogen
into helium. Sub-atomic particles, called neutrinos,
are emitted from the sun as this thermonuclear conversion
occurs. Some of these neutrinos strike the
earth. These neutrino strikes can be measured in cobalt
rock. Scientists utilize cobalt to estimate the
amount of neutrinos that have emitted from the sun.
If the sun is old, many neutrinos have emitted. As it
turns out, astonishingly few neutrinos have emitted
from the sun because conversion of hydrogen into
helium has been going on for a short time, only thousands
The earth is spinning about one second slower
every year. At this rate of spin slowdown, only 30
million years ago, the earth would have spun so fast
that a day would have been four hours long.
If our solar system is billions of years old, there
should be no comets or meteors orbiting within it.
The famous the Hale-Bop comet, Haley’s comet, and
“shooting stars,” all these are objects orbiting in our
solar system but which should be long gone if the
solar system is millions or billions in age. These orbiting
entities should have collided with a planet, or
come near enough to planets, enough times, to burn
up, or reached an escape velocity for ejection from
their orbits and been forced out of our solar system.
In fact, all of these orbiting objects should have disappeared
from our solar system within 10,000 years.
(Old-earthers and universers say that the mysterious
and unobserved “Oort Cloud” somehow re-supplies
our solar system with comets.)
The observable evidences absolutely do not require
an old universe model to rationalize them. To the contrary, they fit quite
nicely within the Biblical framework, as do the geological and biological
evidences for a young earth, as well as the anthropological, and cultural
evidences discussed later. Nothing in the Bible as been disproved, and
corroborating evidences for Biblical inerrancy are abundant.
