MANY QUESTIONS ANSWERED
What about carbon dating?

The world's environment was different before the Flood. Many scientists have concluded that the early earth (about six thousand years ago to right before the Flood) had a significantly higher oxygen level than current levels today. A water canopy around the earth would support this. Higher levels would have been very beneficial to all living creatures and in a pre-flood world, this canopy would have protected all forms of life from harmful radiation that the sun emits. This would in-turn change the rate of decay and all of the findings of todays dating methods that are used. Carbon or radioactivity comes from the sun - everything on earth absorbs it: people, plants, animals, and of course, dinosaurs. Not only do we absorb it throughout life we also absorb it when we eat any type of vegetation, or we eat an animal that ate any type of vegetation. The amount of C-14/C-12 entering the atmosphere is balanced with the amount leaving (decay). If a scientist does not know the exact date of of a specimen, than they can only assume that the rate of consumption of C-14/C-12 has allways been consistantly entering the specimen. The pre-flood environment was made to preserve and protect all life, if carbon-14 is distructive than it would have had to have been filtered out somehow. This would also explain the long life spans in the first 2,000 years.

Measurments taken today show this rate is still increasing which would only date our atmosphere less than 30,000 years without consideration to a pre-flood world. When something dies the C-14/C12 that was absorbed to that point starts to decay, or leave the body, and after aproximately 40,000 to 50,000 years it's gone. Again, when dating something if consideration was given to the environment of a pre-flood world than the inaccuracies of this method would explain why they come up with more than 6,000 years, but the fact remains that carbon-14 method is still only able to give dates in the thousands of years not the millions of years required to fit the evolution theory. Did you know that many times these methods are used on the same specimen and they get two different readings - sometimes thousands of years apart? You tell me how one end of something could be thousands of years older than the other end! How accurate are these dating methods anyway?
When they have tried to date a specimen, knowing exactly when it died, they get readings thousands to millions of years more. But those conclusions are not included in their findings for fear of embarrasment to their theory. Evolutionists are using a rubber ruler and calling it factual science.

The world that Adam and Eve shared was like a greenhouse - a spring-like, tropical environment year around. In so many ways we can see that the pre-flood earth was very different from today's earth and rightly so. In the pre-flood world birds flew in an open firmament between the waters and a protective water (vapor) canopy: "And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so." (Genesis 1:7 KJV) "And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and the fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven."(Genesis 1:20 KJV) "These are the generations of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens." (Genesis 2:4 KJV) God saw everything He had made and it was very good.



How do you know it was 6 literal days?

The Bible makes sense of all the information that has been gathered to support a 6 - day Creation. There has been a great deal of research done on this issue from many viewpoints and all agree that the Bible supports 6 - 24 hour days. The Bible also tells us about dinosaurs, animals, and man how they all lived together in the garden peacefully until Adam and Eve sinned and sin entered the world. "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and by sin; and so passed upon all men, for that all have sinned." (Romans 5:12 KJV). "For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive." (1 Corin. 15:22 KJV). Understand that each day from Genesis 1:1 - 2:3 has an evening, a morning, and a number - first day, second day, etc. If you tried to add thousands, millions, or even billions of years to any part of Genesis you are not taking God's word as written. You would have to compromise Scripture and include in a theory that there was before sin, cancer, disease, fossils and extinction all under the Garden of Eden. That would not be very good. Remember, God made every thing in six days, rested on the seventh, and it was very good. One of the commandments written by the very finger of God said: "For in six days the LORD made the heaven and the earth, the sea and all that is, and rested on the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. " (Exodus 20:11) God communicates to us in a specific manner: evening, morning, number, day; evening, morning, number, day; etc.). As you read Genesis 1:1-31and 2:1-4 (in the Authorized Version-King James 1611-God's infallible word to us in English) the language defines six days of work and one day of rest to observe the Sabbath. God could have made everything in one second, but then we wouldn't have a seven day week. In addition, God also gave us a month based on the moon's cycle, and Earth's orbit around the sun gives us our year.

Young Earth Creationist Has New Bone to Pick With Evolutionists

(AgapePress) - The president of Answers in Genesis says the recent discovery of a dinosaur bone in Montana supports the biblical creationist theory of a young Earth.

According to an article published in last month's Science magazine, in 2003 scientists found a Tyrannosaurus Rex thigh bone during an archaeological dig. The research team had to break the bone in pieces in order to fit it into a helicopter, and when they did so, they discovered the fossil contained well-preserved soft tissues, including blood vessels.

Ken Ham, president of the creationist group Answers in Genesis (AiG), says this important find supports the biblical view of the Earth's timeline. "The reason this is such startling news is because you just wouldn't expect soft tissue and cells like this in a bone supposedly 70 million years old," he says.

The general consensus among scientists prior to the find was that such soft tissue could not survive for tens of millions of years. Now, the dinosaur remains have many evolutionists scrambling to accommodate their evolutionist ideas about origins.

But what AiG scientists would say about the find, Ham observes, "is that it's totally consistent with the fact that these bones aren't that old and probably date back to the time of the flood just a few thousand years ago." However, he doubts evolutionists will give consideration to the possibility that the T-Rex bones are only thousands rather than millions of years old.

"Nothing has been found, nothing in observational science, that contradicts what the Bible says," the AIG spokesman contends, "but over and over, it does contradict the ideas of evolutionists."

Still, because evolutionists' beliefs about the past are so entrenched, he predicts they will just look for ways to explain away the contradictory evidence.

"Instead of questioning their beliefs they just come up with secondary and tertiary explanations," Ham says. "'Well, given enough time ...' or 'Well, we think there is a process somewhere' or 'Well, even though we don't know why' -- In other words they'll do anything but question their beliefs."

Ham is convinced proponents of the theory of evolution will not allow the Montana find to change their minds. Even though, he contends, the recent discovery supports the young Earth theory of origins, he believes evolutionists will say anything rather than admit that the biblical account of creation is true.
