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:
- Evolution – where creation and life formed over a period of billions of years.
- Creationism – where creation all occurred during the six days mentioned in Genesis.
- 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.
Birth of Planet Earth – By Dennis Gordon Lindsay

A Solar Sweeper Clock
There is another kind of clock associated with our discussion of cosmic dust. It has to do with the dust particles in space which are being swept away by the sun’s powerful gravity. The tiny cosmic dust particles, the same ones that settle on the moon, exist throughout the entire solar system. Our sun is vacuuming up these dust particles. Measuring the amount of time it is taking the sun to vacuum up the dust represents another type of natural clock by which we can estimate the age of the solar system.
To better understand how this clock works, think of a person who is employed by a professional janitorial cleaning service and is responsible for vacuuming a 20-story office building. By calculating the time it takes to vacuum the carpet on one floor, since all levels are exactly alike, we can determine approximately how long it will take him to complete the entire 20-story building. The amount of carpet that has been swept makes for a kind of clock that indicates how long the carpet cleaning person has been working at the job. The more carpet that has been swept, the more time has passed since the job began.
Now imagine a huge carpet the size of our solar system—our sun with all of its planets orbiting within it. The sun is the professional janitor in the solar system; it constantly “vacuums” the smaller particles of dust and debris. Its suction power is enormous. Astronomers tell us the sun is sweeping space with its powerful gravitational vacuum field at the rate of about 100,000 tons per day. The planets’ gravitational fields also serve as solar sweepers.
At the present rate, the sun and the planets are vacuuming the dust in our solar system, most of it should have been removed in less than 15 million years. However, the average size and location of most of the particles of dust in the solar system indicate that they are less than 10,000 years in age.
From an evolutionary perspective of 4½ billion years for the age of our solar system, all particles up to three inches in diameter should have been swept into the sun up to the distance of Jupiter—unless some cosmic neighbor has been sweeping the dust out of his galactical home and distributing it throughout our solar system. Could this be where the missing moondust has gone? Maybe it was blown off the moon back into space during a “big sneeze” from the sun during one of its solar storms!
Seriously now, the Bible has the answer: Creation was a recent event—one that took place around 6,000-10,000 years ago.
