Evolutionary Tales Exposed: Part 6 – Billions of Years

August 15, 2011 - By 

One of the things we have been pounded with is the amount of time necessary to allow mutations to produce modern-day species. The evolutionists are desperately looking for time, because if you can produce enough time, you can hide the many weaknesses of the theory of evolution. But eons of time are an absolute necessity, simply because of the amount of mutations necessary, as we saw in the previous post.

There are a number of `clocks` that are used to judge the age of the universe. We will see whether or not these `clocks` are reliable. We will see whether or not the universe is really as old as the theory of evolution postulates.

 

 

The first is radio-metric dating. Potassium argon or uranium lead is used to determine how old something is. Carbon-14 is radioactive carbon. Carbon normally has 12 electrons, but occasionally a carbon atom has 14 electrons. When it has 14, it is unstable. If you took ten pounds of Carbon-14 and came back 1,000 years later, if there was only five pounds of Carbon-14 left, and the rest was Carbon-12, that is how you would at least theoretically determine the age of the carbon. If that is over your head, just let it go; but that is how that `clock` works.

When a creature is alive it of course breathes. Even plants breathe. Thus Carbon-14 enters the creature or plant. When an animal dies, you should be able to measure the amount of Carbon-14 remaining in the specimen and thus to determine the age of that specimen. You should be able to use a scale to determine how much Carbon-14 it should have had, and then the specimen`s age should be measurable. This dating method, incidentally, is only good for organic material, and it is only reliable for a time span of about 40,000 years. For a longer period of time, potassium argon or lead uranium dating must be used. These latter materials have half-lives (supposedly) in the millions of years. This is a pretty good theory; we shall now see how shaky its foundation is.

 

Radioactive Earthtones

 

To make these clocks work, you have to assume that the rate of radioactive decay is the same today as it has been for the last 40,000 years. However, scientists have recently discovered that the rate of radioactive decay can be changed, not in tiny amounts, but in significant amounts. Yet we have been deceived into believing that radioactive decay is an absolutely steady process. That is not true. Another necessity for this clock is that the amount of Carbon-14 in the atmosphere would have to have been the same for the last 40,000 years. How many of you believe that the concentration of C-14 in the atmosphere 20,000 years ago was the same as it is today? How many of you believe that it was the same 50 years ago? It wasn`t. We`ve been measuring it for about 50 years, and it has changed in `only` 50 years. What does that tell you about the reliability of the Carbon-14 dating system?

How many of you believe that the concentration of radioactive argon or potassium is the same as it was two million years ago? That is a very shaky presumption for the theory of evolution. The point that I am trying to make is that the `facts` that we have been bombarded with are not necessarily true. We assume, since a theory comes from a `distinguished` scientist, it is a law. That is an absolute falsehood. These `clocks` are NOT as reliable as we have been led to believe. A scientist who won the Nobel Peace Prize once said, at a meeting with other Nobel Prize winners, concerning radio-metric dating,

“if it corroborates our theory and our work, we print it. If it comes close, we put it in a footnote. If it is contradictory, we don`t mention it at all.”

How`s that for scientific honesty? A quote from `Common Problems With Radio-Metric Dating`: “The fact that erroneous results can be and often are derived from radio-metric dating techniques has been experimentally verified.” For instance living snails have been dated at 2,300 years old by the carbon-dating method.” How many of you believe that a living snail could be 2,300 years old? Wood from living trees has been dated at being 10,000 years old. How many of you believe that a tree can live 10,000 years? Hawaiian lava flows known to be about 200 years old have been dated by potassium argon dating as being 3,000,000,000 years old.

These scientists would do well to consider the question put to Job by God: “Where were YOU when I laid the foundation of the earth?”

I have a total of 69 points that indicate a young earth. We will not have time to cover them all, but I will include as much information as possible in the next post.

  • Thanks for the response. Just to clarify I wasn’t suggesting you said it was a salvation issue, more reflecting on what I’ve heard in other circles 🙂

    You seem to suggest that belief in a creator God and belief in evolution can not co-exist however I disagree. As a Christian who works as a scientist I believe in both quite comfortably.

    Anyway keep up the good work, as you rightly say in your last sentence, our goal is that people come closer to Christ. Amen to that!

    • No problem, thanks for the encouragement, always good to know that the images are making a difference. The Evolution vs Creation series is a thirteen part series. We won’t be spending much more time on the topic after this series is finished. Your feedback is welcomed, thanks.

    • Rowan, as a Christian who works as a Scientist, how do you justify your belief in evolution? when…

      1. Proteins do not form naturally in nature.
      2. Out of the over 200 millions fossils, not one missing link has been found.

  • Gday guys,

    I’ve recently discovered Inspiks and am lovin it, I can get a fix of digital art stuff and God stuff in the one spot!

    Having said that I probably don’t agree with this article for a number of reasons.

    I think the creation vs evolution debate is over-emphasized in Christian circles and is causing un-necessary division. What I think Genesis teaches us is that God created a perfect creation and that we ruined. God could have done that via a literal 7 days or via a longer evolution. The problem the church faces is that there are very vocal people on both sides of the fence that say that ‘you can’t be christian if you believe that!’

    Creation vs evolution isn’t a issue of salvation, our relationship with Jesus is! That’s what we should be focusing on.

    Anywho that’s my two cents, love your work otherwise though, keep it up 🙂

    • Hi Rowan, thanks for the compliments on the artwork and your response to the article.

      I am sorry that you feel that this kind of article is over-emphasized and causing division in the church. Our aim is not to cause any sort of division, but to bring the truth of God to people as it relate to science, and what is being taught to us in this society, many Christians do not know what to believe, because they are told that everything we see and know is an accident, that has no cause or reason and at the end…there is no God..everything in the Bible is a fairytale. Either that or some are trying to blend Aesthetics evolution with the Bible, or some have given up on the Bible and turned over to Atheism.

      We DO NOT teach that only those that believe in the 7 day creation will go to heaven, you will never find that in any of our articles or even in the comment areas, we teach that you can only find salvation in the grace given by God through the death of Jesus on the Cross.

      Yes “Creation vs evolution isn’t a issue of salvation, our relationship with Jesus is! “ But how can we have a closer relationship with Christ, when we believe that the first miracle he performed (The creation of the heavens and the earth ) is a lie?

      We are all being brain washed into believing that God did not create the heavens and the earth and the truth of God is being suppressed, whether it be in our schools, on TV, in the movies and now in our churches and that is frightening that there are Christians who do not believe that God created the heavens and the earth!

      There are consequences to this suppression of the truth of God and we can find it in the word of God, check Romans 1

      “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 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.

      Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

      Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.” Romans 1:18-27

      Everything that we do on this blog is for the education of Christians, even the artwork has a message that lead us back to God. We do not do this to condemn anyone, if you do not agree, that is fine, we have very civil discussions in which we learn from each other, and help each other to be closer to Christ. 🙂
