Evolutionary scientists faithfully believe it took millions of years for the Colorado River to erode away the Grand Canyon. To determine this, scientists first measured the current, average flow of water. They then worked backwards, using those present-day erosion quantities to calculate what has happened throughout history. Recent recorded events give significant scientific proof that this unscientific equation is missing a key variable: natural disasters.
In 1900, a massive hurricane hit Galvaston, Texas, wiping out a large portion of the city. As a result, a sea wall was built, changing the landscape and natural erosion patterns. Dirt and sand were moved around and shipped to the area to help protect Galveston from such future devastation. The topography of the area was forever altered in a matter of a few years that would have taken normal circumstances centuries. (see )
Mount St. Helens erupted in 1980 releasing an estimated 520 million tons of thick, deadly ash and rock. Magma produced the largest recorded landslide in Earth’s history, traveling approximately 14 miles west. Trees were uprooted, reducing whole wooded areas to a pile of oversized burnt toothpicks. The hot ash and gases melted snow and ice caps on mountain tops, sending water flooding into the surrounding area along with the magma. Roads and bridges were destroyed in minutes. The initial explosion took seconds with the aftermath affects occurring all day. When the event was over, a large crater was left in the side of the mountain. (see )
LEAP OF FAITH
We have only started recently recording temperatures and environmental details. Without the knowledge of past natural disasters, weather conditions, or physical proof, many evolutionary predictions are nothing more than assumptions at best.
Scientists have been evaluating rock layers, or stratum, for centuries. Evolutionists assign different time periods to the different layers according to the fossils found. Their theories are shattered when fossilized trees were discovered running vertically through several of these layers. It is impossible for a tree to have survived the millions of years necessary for this to occur. It could only have happened in a short period of time, which is consistent with science, which is consistent with a Global flood, which is consistent with the Bible.
Evolutionists are so committed to their ideology they intentionally ignore the evidence placed squarely in front of them. If they didn’t, their entire belief system would come crashing down around them. It’s not about science, it’s about faith.
The basis of science is observable evidence. We can produce life in a test tube with the appropriate male and female seeds, but we have yet to view life springing from non-life. We can create a special brand of dog from breeding specific canines, but we have yet to witness a dog turning into a cat. Scientists have actually abandoned the Big Bang Theory because they could not explain the universe exploding into existence from nothing, though it is still taught in schools. (see )
What we can observe is floods, tornados, hurricanes and fires happening now. We witness how much damage, destruction and change can take place in a blink of an eye as opposed to millions of years. We notice how all the dating methods continue to consistently contradict each other by millions of years. We can discover how hundreds of civilizations across the globe have a global flood story while scientists continue to maintain local flooding only. (see )
Liberty, it all comes down to this. If Satan can get us to start questioning Creation, then we have to throw out Adam and Eve, our fall into sin and ultimately our need for a Savior. If that happens then Christ's perfect life, sinless death for our redemption, and resurrection are just a story. We would have to believe that humans are just accidents in a colossal universe of accidents. There is no Heaven or Hell, there is no purpose, and there is no reason to care for others. When that happens, Satan has won. Either the Bible is ALL God's word or it isn't. You can't pick and choose.
Evolution is not science, it is a religion. It comes down to faith, Liberty. Is your faith in God, or is it in man?
“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.” Romans 1:20-23, 25
That’s my 2 cents.
On this date in 2009, a magnitude 8.0 Earthquake struck in the Pacific Ocean close to American Samoa, Samoa and Tonga. This quake triggered a massive and divesting tsunami. Within moments, homes, roads and buildings were demolished by the forceful waters pouring onto the islands. Several villages were severely damaged with just under 200 people loosing their lives.
Forest fires destroy thousands of acres a year. The smoke and ash leave a false carbon print on any land and landmarks it touches. Fires such as these have been affecting the world since its beginning. It is no wonder carbon dating samples are so inconsistent.
The problem with evolutionary models is they put their trust into methods that do not take into account natural disasters and to a degree, human response. Human interaction can itself move land, change erosion patterns, and affect flooding. As a result, we are told it took millions of years for canyons to be dug out, waterways to be molded, and landscapes to change. No, it took about 6000 years and hundreds of Earth shattering natural occurrences, starting with a Global flood.
The Old Earth Theory comes with the belief that the Earth is today what it was millions of years ago. Calculations are made on that assumption. This belief is called uniformitarianism.
Japan was hit by a tsunami in 2011, moving its coast 8 feet. The tsunami was so powerful, it also shifted the Earth’s axis. If Japan experienced a similar 2011 tsunami once every 200 years over a 5000 year period, then conceivably Japan could have moved 2000 feet in a relatively short period of time. Even if Japan moved just 1/16th inch a year, it would take over 1500 years for Japan to move under "normal" conditions what the 2011 tsunami did in moments.
Since scientists don't know all the natural disasters that have occurred, they are left completely out of their equations. If they are mentioned, it is only to further their narrative. For example, many claim an asteroid killed the dinosaurs yet their Earthly timeline does not account for such a catastrophic event.
Evolutionary Theory teaches the Earth was on fire for millions of years before life was formed. Yet the same scientists proclaim the Earth is going to self-destruct if its temperature increases even by a small amount. Their theory teaches the Earth began radically different. Conversely, any changes from how it is at this very moment are supposedly catastrophic. So while they worship Mother Earth for evolving to this point, they panic at any signs of her evolving from what she is right now.
