Good reasons I believe in a Young Earth: #1 The recent demise of dinosaurs.
2 The tongue of the wise commends knowledge, but the mouths of fools pour out folly.
Occasionally, I find an article that helps me explain in plain terms the disparity between hopeful science and hope-filled science. Hopeful science interprets all evidence from the perspective that hopes in evolution: The random ability of nature to go against its own laws (the laws of thermodynamics*) to create order. Hope-filled science looks at the evidence from a Creator/Designer perspective and finds the wonder in all creation large and small, from DNA in cells to spiral galaxies. The following article is yet another example of a Young Earth:
A new review paper published in the journal Expert Review of Proteomics summarizes 85 reports of organic remains in fossils. Some of the reports describe whole tissues like blood vessels, dried but intact skin, and connective tissues on or inside fossils like dinosaur bones. Other reports describe whole cells like red blood cells and bone cells. Other reports in the review paper describe biochemicals specific to animals (not microbes), including proteins, collagen, elastin, ovalbumin, and keratin…1) a diversity of organic material among different types of fossils…2) The study authors noted the extent of biomaterials in fossils covers most of Earth…3) hundreds of fossil experts have found specimens that apparently contain original biomaterials from most of the ten iconic geological systems.
The review paper noted that biomaterials like proteins always decay over time, and that experiments show that although some might last thousands of years, none should last millions [or, a million years]. The study authors therefore had to admit to the ridiculously huge difference between experimental expectations and the actual fossil finds and the dates traditionally ascribed to them. 85 Reports
Descriptions and drawings of dinosaurs have been reported within the last 200 years in South America. Maybe they are not as extinct as we think they are…
If dinosaurs (dragons, in history) were created by God along with all land animals, then they were created on the sixth day, and we can also surmise that many of those created on that day died in the Great Flood some 1500 years later, which explains their incredible size. See? Science doesn’t have to be that hard to swallow. We just need to know which science to eat.
Tomorrow, we will take a look at the geological diagram of the layers of the earth. Don’t miss it!
Abba, You are the Great Designer. Everything in Your universe works perfectly according to Your natural laws. May we seek You in Your nature, O Lord. May we see Your handiwork in everything. Amen.
“The First Law of Thermodynamics states that energy can be converted from one form to another with the interaction of heat, work and internal energy, but it cannot be created nor destroyed, under any circumstances.” We can’t get something from nothing.
“The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that the state of entropy [randomization, lowest state of being] of the entire universe, as an isolated system, will always increase over time.” Things naturally break down, not the other way around.
