In a recent trip across Canada, I started to take note of all the signs indicating that rock formations were produced by water over millions of years.
“The Bow Valley was shaped by water over millions of years…”
“About 160 million years ago they [the Rockies] began to form. The sediments that had settled on the ancient sea bed were now kilometers deep…”
“Over the past 100 million years, this canyon has been shaped by volcanic eruptions, massive glaciers, raging rivers, waterfall and rapids. Slowly, the sheer force of water has worn away the granite rock walls to reveal the canyon below you.”
This is consistent with what I have found stated as fact in school science text books:
“Limestones, shales and sandstones of Southern and Eastern Ontario, we deposited in large inland seas between 570 and 400 million years ago.”
It is true that most of the geology we see today was produced by water, but it was a catastrophic global flood that destroyed the earth (Genesis 6:13) and it was only about 4300 years ago (see The Big Bang is a Big Hoax). Atheists hang their hat on radiometric dating as the sole proof that the earth is 4.5 billion years old. In his debate against Ken Ham (see 7 Truths About Creation & Evolution), Bill Nye was asked what scientific evidence there was to support his view of the age of the earth, outside of radiometric dating methods. Unable to come up with any other evidence, he said, “Radiometric evidence is pretty compelling”. He went on to say that it was a mystery as to how the earth could be old enough to allow evolution to have taken place, but Lyell came up with the first use of the term “deep time”.
Lyell was not the first to come up with the idea of long ages for the earth, but he was among those scoffers of whom the Bible prophesied would come in the last days, suggesting that the geological processes we see today have been the same from the beginning, denying that Noah’s flood ever took place.
