Join us in the 2018 October school holidays for the Creation Super Conference on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. I spent an hour or more reading through this with my wife. Up until 6 years ago when i met my wife, I just naturaly thought the earth was millions of yrs old. And it would take an amount of money to float a new company to do oil exploration using a creationist approach to geology, money that I would think most Christians would be better spent elsewhere.
4 days, 10 Speakers, full kids program, Youth activities, access to resort facilities and much more! Evidence of very recent or even present formation of oil is consistent with a young earth.
A conservative estimate for the pre-Flood biomass is 100 times that of today.
This is partly due to the legacy of the doctrine of uniformitarianism passed down from one generation of geologists to the next since the time of Charles Lyell in the early nineteenth century.
Uniformitarianism assumes that the vast amount of geological change recorded in the rocks is the product of slow and uniform processes operating over an immense span of time, as opposed to a global cataclysm of the type described in the Bible and other ancient texts.
The bottom line of this research is that the case is now extremely compelling that the fossil record was produced just a few thousand years ago by the global Flood cataclysm.
The evidence reveals that macroevolution as an explanation for the origin of life on earth can therefore no longer be rationally defended.
Most of the other RATE projects address this important issue.
Equally as persuasive as the Another RATE project documents the existence of abundant Polonium radiohalos in granitic rocks that crystallized during the Flood and further demonstrates that the uniformitarian assumption of constant decay rates is incorrect.
They interpreted these discoveries as vindicating both uniformitarianism and evolution, which led to the domination of these beliefs in academic circles around the world throughout the twentieth century.
However, modern technology has produced a major fly in that uniformitarian ointment.
Figure 1 below shows in histogram form the results of these analyses.
These values fall squarely within the range already established in the peer-reviewed radiocarbon literature.
With the discovery of radioactivity about a hundred years ago, evolutionists deeply committed to the uniformitarian outlook believed they finally had proof of the immense antiquity of the earth.
