Does the universe look old? Was Adam created with the appearance of age? The answer to these questions may surprise you. Although Adam was created as an adult, he was not created with any appearance of age. In fact, the phrase “appearance of age” is an oxymoron because age has no appearance at all.
Our critic this week responded to my recent article on radiometric dating. He made a number of assertions. Does this critic make any good, rational points? Or does he exhibit the typical ignorance of science and creation technical literature along with fallacious reasoning?
“Science has proved that the earth is 4.5 billion years old.” We have all heard this claim. We are told that scientists use a technique called radiometric dating to measure the age of rocks. We are also told that this method very reliably and consistently yields ages of millions to billions of years, thereby establishing beyond question that the earth is immensely old – a concept known as deep time. Has science therefore disproved the Bible?
We have been exploring the misrepresentations and logical fallacies in the evolutionist article entitled “15 Answers to Creationist Nonsense.” Finally, in part 3, the critic mentions some actual scientific evidence. But unfortunately for him, the evidence confirms biblical creation and challenges Darwinian evolution.
In part 1 we began exploring the misrepresentations and logical fallacies in the evolutionist article entitled “15 Answers to Creationist Nonsense.” We have seen that the critic is very unfamiliar with what creation scientists actually teach. In part 2, we see that this trend has continued.
Recently, someone sent me a link to an article appearing in Scientific American – a popular science magazine. The article was extremely revealing, but not in the way the author probably intended. The article exhibited a very common problem we often see among evolutionists: ignorance of creation literature.
