Thought For The Day


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.)



Prayer Requests


·         I am in the middle of a battle with some Christians to be allowed to present the evidence for a young earth to their children.  Pray that Truth with Love will prevail.



Praise Reports


·         An Elim clothing designer, Chrissy Tetly, gave a great presentation of Kilt Making at Te Marae, Te Papa on Sunday.  The presentation was rounded out by a Scottish fling created by Chrissy, incorporating a Maori kapa haka performed by yours truly.  The successful blend of these two diverse cultures is a model of Christian peace.
