Copy of a Chart in the American Museum of Natural History*
The above chart illustrates the (supposed) Antiquity of the Earth and how it apparently changed. Between 1868 and 1968 the earth "aged" at the rate of over 40 million years per year!
(Our Response:) The earth did NOT "age." It is only a figment of the imagination! Note that "everyone" prior to 1868 (and the advent of the theory of evolution), thought the earth was YOUNG! Evolution needs tremendously long "ages" for evolution to happen! Therefor, evolutionists had to expand the time available for this evolution.
"The uprooting of such fantastic beliefs of catastrophists, (i.e. Bible believers), began with the Scottish geologist, James Hutton, whose Theory of the Earth, published in 1785, maintained that the present is key to the past and that, given sufficient time, processes now at work could account for all the geologic features of the globe. This philosophy, which came to be known as the doctrine of uniformitarianism, demands an immensity of time. It has now gained universal acceptance among intelligent and informed people." [Carl Dunbar, Historical Geology, 1960, p.18]
Circular Reasoning of Geologists:
|The main points to remember are:|
|Time is created|
|Time is a human experience|
|Time begins and ends with God|
|GOD IS TIMELESS|
It may SEEM like it should take a year for water to become wine, but God works miracles and eliminates time!
|Healings were instantaneous|
|Wind and waves were calmed immediately|
|Adam and Eve were created mature -- "grown up"|
|The trees, earth, animals, etc., were created mature|
|The entire universe was created mature|
