Ken Ham and his ilk do not adequately account for any of this, instead asserting that all the dating methods are wrong and that there is a huge conspiracy on the part of scientists to keep the general public from believing in God. A Summary of the Million Dollar RATE Research Project (Radioisotopes and the Age of The Earth) Introduction: Rocks and fossils do not come with dates on them.In fact, the very concept of strata representing long ages does not come from the rock strata themselves.
This is despite the fact that it causes more problems for interpreting rock strata than it solves.And today we know through lab experiments and natural disasters (such as the eruption of Mt. Helens) that major layering of rock strata can happen catastrophically in a short period of time.Young-earth creation geologists have long held that most sedimentary strata resulted from waterborne deposits during Noah’s Flood.Home Basic Science Exploring Origins Basic Geology Radiometric Dating Earth Climate Evolutionary Theory Transitional Fossils Evidence for Macroevolution Evidence for Common Descent Human Evolution Human History Human Migration Basic Cosmology Refuting Young-Earthism Age of Rocks Old Earth Reasons to Believe God of Evolution American Scientific Affiliation Answers in Science Talk Origins Age of the Earth Answers against Creationism Panda's Thumb New Scientist No Answers in Genesis NCSE & BCSE Great Video Series How Evolution Works Transitional Fossils How to Debate Creationists Creationism and Christianity More Earth Science "Usually, even a non-Christian knows something about the earth, the heavens, and the other elements of this world, about the motion and orbit of the stars and even their size and relative positions, about the predictable eclipses of the sun and moon, the cycles of the years and the seasons, about the kinds of animals, shrubs, stones, and so forth, and this knowledge he holds to as being certain from reason and experience.Now, it is a disgraceful and dangerous thing for an infidel to hear a Christian, presumably giving the meaning of Holy Scripture, talking nonsense on these topics; and we should take all means to prevent such an embarrassing situation, in which people show up vast ignorance in a Christian and laugh it to scorn.
The shame is not so much that an ignorant individual is derided, but that people outside the household of faith think our sacred writers held such opinions, and, to the great loss of those for whose salvation we toil, the writers of our Scripture are criticized and rejected as unlearned men.
"If they find a Christian mistaken in a field which they themselves know well and hear him maintaining his foolish opinions about our books, how are they going to believe those books in matters concerning the resurrection of the dead, the hope of eternal life, and the kingdom of heaven, when they think their pages are full of falsehoods and on facts which they themselves have learnt from experience and the light of reason?
Reckless and incompetent expounders of Holy Scripture bring untold trouble and sorrow on their wiser brethren when they are caught in one of their mischievous false opinions and are taken to task by those who are not bound by the authority of our sacred books. Ken Ham's Creation "Museum" Ken Ham has made a career out of spreading misinformation and lies about evolution and the age of the earth.
For then, to defend their utterly foolish and obviously untrue statements, they will try to call upon Holy Scripture for proof and even recite from memory many passages which they think support their position, although they understand neither what they say nor the things about which they make assertion." St Augustine of Hippo (354 - 430 AD), Commentary on Genesis This website has been designed to help expose the fraudulent teachings of Young-Earth Creationism. His creation "museum", a monstrosity dedicated to nonsense, was built for an astonishing million, donated by uneducated individuals who couldn't think of anything better to support.
Do you think the findings of geology, geophysics, cosmology, palaeontology, archaeology, biology, zoology and astrophysics are wrong? Really, the mind boggles at the minds of so many Americans (and not a few Britons) who still think that the world is only 6,000 years old and that a worldwide flood laid down the rocks.
What then of ancient civilizations and cave paintings dating back to 25,000 BC? Or varve formations at least a few million years old?
