Many Christians believe the earth is old. Even though this contradicts Genesis and the facts of science. Secular science has two methods for determining the age of the earth, but creation science has 101 methods of doing this (See below), which are ignored.
Most ‘Christian’ organizations today believe in theistic evolution based on theories by atheists and agnostics. Charles Darwin, and Charles Lyell were atheists. Lyell was a lawyer who hated the Bible and he invented the theory of uniformitarianism (long ages materialistic processes) on which modern evolution is based. Evolution claims all things continue as they have since the earth came into existence. It is a naturalistic explanation that denies the existence of a Creator.
Darwin on the other hand started out as a theistic evolutionist, then became atheistic. This is what Hugh Ross’ theology leads to, loss of faith in God’s Word. It leads to Reasons (NOT) to Believe.
This theory has been and is being promoted by the movement to deify man as the ultimate god of this world in a New World Order of Humanism. Darwinism was promoted by Humanists to undermine belief in a coming world government led by Antichrist.
Here is what the Illuminati state in their PLAN The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion under Protocol No. 2,
“2. The administrators, whom we shall choose from among the public, with strict regard to their capacities for servile obedience, will not be persons trained in the arts of government, and will therefore easily become pawns in our game in the hands of men of learning and genius who will be their advisers, specialists bred and reared from early childhood to rule the affairs of the whole world. As is well known to you, these specialists of ours have been drawing to fit them for rule the information they need from our political plans from the lessons of history, from observations made of the events of every moment as it passes. The GOYIM are not guided by practical use of unprejudiced historical observation, but by theoretical routine without any critical regard for consequent results. We need not, therefore, take any account of them - let them amuse themselves until the hour strikes, or live on hopes of new forms of enterprising pastime, or on the memories of all they have enjoyed. For them let that play the principal part which we have persuaded them to accept as the dictates of science (theory). It is with this object in view that we are constantly, by means of our press, arousing a blind confidence in these theories. The intellectuals of the GOYIM will puff themselves up with their knowledge's and without any logical verification of them will put into effect all the information available from science, which our AGENTUR specialists have cunningly pieced together for the purpose of educating their minds in the direction we want.
3. Do not suppose for a moment that these statements are empty words: think carefully of the successes we arranged for Darwinism, Marxism, Nietzsche-ism. To us Jews, at any rate, it should be plain to see what a disintegrating importance these directives have had upon the minds of the GOYIM.”
THE BIBLE STATES: 2 Peter 3: “3 knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4 and saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 6 whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:”
Charles Darwin had a non-conformist Unitarian background, but attended a Church of England school. With the aim of becoming a clergyman he went to the University of Cambridge for the required BA degree, which included studies of Anglican theology. He took great interest in natural history and became filled with zeal for science as defined by John Herschel, based on the natural theology of William Paley (Theistic evolution) which presented the argument from divine design in nature to explain adaptation as God acting through laws of nature. On the voyage of the Beagle he remained orthodox and looked for "centres of creation" to explain distribution, but towards the end of the voyage began to doubt that species were fixed. By this time he was critical of the Bible as history, and wondered why all religions should not be equally valid (New Age Religion, all roads lead to Heaven i.e. Rome). Following his return in October 1836, he developed his novel ideas of geology while speculating about transmutation of species and thinking about religion.
He was critical of the Bible because it did not fit his naturalistic speculation. When God’s Word does not fit what man wants to believe, God’s Word has to compromise. Man makes himself a god following Satan’s advice to Eve.
Lyell falsely claimed that the speed of strata deposition in the present could tell us how old the strata is. He assumed that it must be very slow like a fraction of an inch a year. However, sedimentary deposition requires rapid deposition during flash floods, or at the ends of rapidly moving rivers. And the speed varies. It is a totally unreliable ‘clock.’ The first age determinations were by Lyell and he came to the conclusion that life appeared 240 million years ago, now they claim it 3.5 billion years! He estimated by the strata that dinosaurs existed only a few million years ago, much less than today’s 65 million. These estimates keep changing, but are always kept relatively within the speculations made by evolutionary researchers in the 1800s which require long ages for random evolution to work. This has prevented evolution and long ages from being falsified. A requirement of science is that hypothesis must be falsifiable. But today everything is falsifiable, except the theory of naturalism, evolution, and long ages.
Today radioactive decay is claimed to be the proof that fossils and rocks are millions or billions of years old. However, radioactive methods have produced numerous dates that are millions of years different from each other on the same rock. And volcanic rock from Mt Saint Helens and other places that were produced in known historical or recent times all come out dated at millions of years old. Proving they are totally unreliable. Only Carbon 14 comes close, but it dates only things that are recent in historical times. And it dates fossils at thousands of years old. It is not accurate, but it is accurate proof that these fossils are thousands of years old not millions. The results should be negative, no radiation if it is older than 50 to 100 thousand years old. Instead it indicates the fossils are not even that old. But rather 35 to 40 thousand years, and when corrected comes out to close to 5 thousand years! Noah’s Flood occurred around 2347 BC.
