Evidence for Young Earth

Arguments Against the Accuracy of Rock Dating

  1. Using the potassium-argon method of dating, volcanic material in Hawaii that was less than 200 years old, tested at between 160 million and 3 billion years old. (Journal of Geophysical Research, July 15, 1968, pg. 4601.)
  2. A shell from a living mollusk was tested for carbon-14 and found to be dead for 3,000 years. (Science, vol. 141, page 636, August 16, 1963.)

Arguments For a Young Earth

  1. Dr. Melvin Cook said that if oil in the earth was as old as geologists claim (80,000,000 years) it’s pressure would have dissipated long before this – the present pressure of oil indicates not over 10,000 years. (Chapters 12-13 of Prehistory and Earth Models by Melvin A. Cook, Max Parrish and Company, 1966.)
  2. Scientists, working in a lab, produced a barrel of oil from one ton of garbage in only 20 minutes. (Machine Design, 14 May 1970.)

  1. Please, forgive my ignorance, but if scientists can create oil in less than 20 minutes in the lab, why do we have oil shortages? Is it the wrong type of oil?


  2. A fair comment.  I\’m guessing that the answer lies in the cost of the process.  To artificially create oil from processed garbage would probably be far too expensive compared to the cost of extracting crude from the ground.
