Evidence backs young Earth
    January 30 2012 by Tam Hutchinson Jr., North Wilkesboro, N.C.

    I read with great interest the article by David Roach entitled “Pastors unconvinced about evolution, split on earth’s age,” in the Jan. 21, 2012 edition of the Biblical Recorder.
     
    The author did a good job of recording the facts and giving statistical analyses.
     
    Some of the pastors’ answers in the article seem to indicate a conflict in their minds.
     
    My purpose is to encourage readers who are confused by conflicting messages about the Bible. 
     
    Suppose one chooses to believe the Bible is correct as written. Does the Bible indicate a recent creation – within the past 10,000 years? Yes it does. 
     
    Luke 3:34-38 gives the ancestry of Jesus from Adam (about 2,000 years – Genesis 5:3-32 and 11:10-26, except for Cainan) to Abraham (around 2,000 B.C). That means God created Adam around 4,000 B.C, which was about 6,000 years ago. Also, the Ten Commandments affirm that creation took six days (Exodus 20:11).
     
    Does the physical evidence also support a recent creation? Yes, it does.
     
    There are only enough people on the earth for a few thousand years of existence.
     
    The R.A.T.E. Project has consistently shown that there is enough helium (a byproduct of nuclear decomposition) remaining in Zircon crystals for only about 6,000 years of diffusion.
     
    Dinosaur remains that still have blood cells in their bones have been found on the north shore of Alaska. Blood cells can only last 5,000 to 10,000 years in those conditions.
     
    If one can show that the earth is less than 10,000 years old, there is not enough time for macro evolution from one kind of thing to another.
     
    In conclusion, if one takes the position that the Bible is correct as written; the evidence does seem to support that position very well.
