Birth-Age of Planet Earth – 6 – Hot Potato

A note from John:

I found this article (see below),  written by Dennis Lindsay.  It is 34 chapters in length, and chapters comprise volume 8 of an apparent larger series.  You can find it on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and such book places.  Only a single chapter is viewed in this post.

It has some pretty good science which thoroughly disproves Evolution. but tends to look at the Creationism view, which ignores several important scriptures and the obvious.  It does come close to the correct Biblical view of creation, but not quit.

Remember that there are three basic views of creation:

  1. Evolution – where creation and life formed over a period of billions of years.
  2. Creationism – where creation all occurred during the six days mentioned in Genesis.
  3. Fundamental Christianity (the correct view) – where creation occurred, with angels first, then the universe, then Satan’s fall, then the earth became null and void, then the six day restoration of earth.

The text of this writing below, suggests that the universe was created about 6000 years ago.  The proofs are compelling for disputing evolution, but not from the point of creation, but from the point of the restoration and/or the flood in Noah’s time.

Fundamental Christian doctrine teaches that angels were created, then the universe was created, then Satan had his falling out and the earth was rendered null and void, then the six day restoration occurred wherein Adam was created as an adult and mature man.

Since the angels were created instantaneously as mature creatures, and Adam and plants and animals were created in the same pattern, it follows that the universe was likewise created in a mature state and did not evolve over billions of years.   So the question is, ‘How old is the universe?  Is its age measured in billions of years or thousands of years?’

We know that when planet earth was created it came with plants and animals.  Dinosaurs are proof of this fact.  But their age is uncertain.  When they disappeared, then that fits in with the earth becoming null and void.  God then restored the world in six days and thus we have human history beginning at that point.  Therefore, as you read this article, consider the dating suggestions as coming from the restoration and/or the Flood, and not as the actual original beginning.

Genealogical records from the Bible, place the date of Adam at about 6000 plus years ago.  Prior to Adam, was the null and void period (time-frame unknown), and prior to that was the fall of Satan (time-frame unknown), and prior to that was the creation of the universe (time-frame unknown).

The actual age of the universe is probably not in the billions of years, assuming the mature state of its creation, but since God is fair and since angels had their chance and failed, then it would seem reasonable that angelic history would be at least as long as human history, otherwise Satan would complain that the comparison was not fair, and besides, God does not do things arbitrarily or without a plan.  Therefore, angelic history and dinosaurs and such could easily have completed their history in a few thousands of years (prior to man), too.  Food for thought.

ANYONE FOR A HOT POTATO

Dropped Like a Hot Potato

Overnight, the issue of moon dust disappeared out of sight as if it had been sucked into a black hole. The issue was dropped like a hot potato. In spite of evidence to the contrary, most evolutionists maintain their dogma of vast eons of time since the origin of the universe. Their only alternative would be to admit error. So instead of accepting the obvious, evolutionists continue to look for some other explanation for the small amount of dust on the moon.

Evolutionists have tried to skirt the moon dust issue by suggesting that prior to the Apollo moon mission, the majority of scientists didn’t believe there would be much dust and that it was only a minority fringe group that thought otherwise. If this is true, then why was an extra one billion dollars spent (a conservative estimate) prior to the first Apollo moon mission because of concern about the dust problem? For example, as early as 1959, atheistic Isaac Asimov, a prolific writer, predicted that meteoritic dust upon the moon was at least 50 feet deep. (Science Digest, Jan. 1959, pp. 33–36).

The scientists’ concern for the safety of the men is to be admired. Such a concern has its roots in the Word of God. On the other hand, there is little or no concern for human life (other than one’s own) outside of the Bible. It is evident that humanists, atheists, pagan religions and evolutionists have no basis of concern for human life. That is why over 1.6 million babies are being slaughtered each year in abortuaries across the U.S. Such a holocaust is the result of the indoctrination of humanistic evolutionism.

The Truth of the Matter

Some evolutionists have attempted to discredit the importance of the dust issue. But the truth of the matter is well documented in various publications. For example, The Rand McNally New Concise Atlas of the Universe (1978, pg. 41) states, “The theory that the Maria (Mare Tranquillitatis) was covered with deep layers of soft dust was current until well into the 1960s.” Furthermore, once the astronauts were safely back on Earth, they were invited to be on Bob Hope’s nationally-televised special. Hope asked Neil Armstrong what his greatest fear was before he set that first historic foot on the moon’s surface. Without hesitation, Armstrong responded that his greatest fear was regarding the moon dust layer that scientists had told the astronauts to expect.

Additional Documentation

The best source of documentation that evolutionists did in fact believe there was a deep layer of dust on the moon is found in textbooks. Evolutionists were much more candid before creationists began forcing the issue.

For example, we read in Dynamic Astronomy:

The moon was for many years characterized as having a thick layer of dust covering its surface, into which an object would sink if it landed there.

The $64,000 Question

How do we account for such a small amount of moon dust if the moon is, in fact, several billion years old? We know the rate at which cosmic dust falls on the Earth and the yearly accumulation. If we assume the rate has not varied throughout time, as even the evolutionists maintain, then how do we account for an accumulation of only a couple of inches on the moon? This is the question, and it is yet to be answered logically and reasonably by evolutionists. The answer is quite simple. The moon and the Earth are not 4½ billion years old; but rather, as the Bible reveals, less than 6,000 years.

More Missing Mountains of Dust

Scientists tell us that the mountains of the moon are eroding due to radiation from the sun and from outer space. This invisible radiation is striking the surface of the mountains, eroding them. In the mid-1950’s, R. A. Lyttleton, highly-respected astronomer and consultant to the U.S. Space program, wrote:

The lunar surface is exposed to direct sunlight, and the strong ultra-violet light and X-rays can destroy the surface layers of exposed rocks and reduce them to dust at the rate of a few ten-thousandths of an inch per year. But even this minute amount could—during the age of the moon—be sufficient to form a layer over it several miles deep.

Now a few ten-thousandths of an inch a year isn’t much dust; but when you multiply even this infinitesimal amount by 4½ billion years, it amounts to 20–60 miles of dust—on top of the previously mentioned missing cosmic dust! If our astronauts had sunk into miles of dust on the moon, the evolutionists would have proclaimed this as “proof” of the great age of the moon. But they found only enough dust for footprints.

The silence of the evolutionists is strangely loud regarding the “disappearance” of the dust. No one likes dust thrown in his face, but the evolutionists have had cosmic dust blown in theirs.
