Young Earth Evidences
Class Notes for Friday, 9-19-2003
The Bible is the INERRANT Word of God.
How old is the Earth according to the Bible? It is
from from 6,325 to 6,571 years old, or 6,416 (-91 / +155)
We know that the 6 days of Creation were actual days, because
it is written in Genesis 1 "And there was evening and there was morning".
This phrase is used to describe all 6 days.
ALL TIME since Jesus created the Earth is fully ACCOUNTED.
Only DAYS have an evening and a morning; huge periods
of time, or an ERA, does not.
The Lunar Excursion Module was designed with flotation pads
to keep it on top of all the loose dust.
The dust would never pack-down because the Moon has NO
When APOLLO 11 arrived in JULY 1969,
just enough dust to leave nice footprints was available (about 1/8" of
an inch). In fact, Neil Armstrong's first words were:
SECULAR Science is not overtly or specifically religious,
and very often is hostile toward the Biblical explanations of how Jesus
created all that exists.
Theorizing that the moon is 4.6 billion years old, NASA scientists
calculated that there should be 54 FEET of Moon Dust accumulated
"That's one small step for man; one giant leap for mankind;
Since we see light from these very old sources, and secular
science assumes that all stars were made in a single event called the BIG
BANG, the assumption is made that our sun too must be very old.
Secular Science has a pretty good grasp of the fusion reaction
of Hydrogen to generate heat. In the reaction, mass is converted
to energy, Helium is formed, and a particular type of neutrino is released,
a MUON NEUTRINO.
Current solar theory postulates that our sun is about 4.6
billion years old due to our place in our own MILKY WAY galaxy,
and in the Universe.
In space, light travels at a constant 186,000 MILES PER
SECOND. Even if the source of light is moving AWAY or
us, we always see that same CONSTANT speed.
To say that a distant star is 1 billion light-years away
is also to say that we are seeing light that is 1 BILLION years
These Neutrino capture experiments have been run by both
the USA and Russia since the 1960s, but always, they found way too few
As reported in the April 1995 edition of Physics Today,
only 60% of the expected neutrinos are being detected here on Earth.
That is, if the Sun were 4.6 billion years old, and the heavier element
reactions were also occurring, increasing the total quantity of reactions
(as they do when a Sun ages), then we are missing 40% of the expected neutrinos!
Curiously, as the Physics Today article mentions, the amount of
neutrinos being collected is precisely the amount we would get if only
the primary reaction were occurring (that is, just the Hydrogen reaction).
The only time when just the Hydrogen reaction exclusively occurs is when
a Sun is new.
The windows of the heavens:
Albert Einstein correctly theorized that a 5th fundamental
force was in play regarding the movement of star fields, and he called
this repulsive force the COSMOLOGICAL CONSTANT. After 20 years,
Hubble finally convinced Einstein to abandon his theory, but Albert was
right all along. FYI, the other 4 forces are:
Genesis 1 tells us that the Sun, the Moon, and all of the
stars were all made on DAY 4 of creation.
We now have strong evidence that the Sun and Moon are both
brand new, which begs the question: "How then did the stars get to be so
The Hubble Space Telescope is estimated to be capable of
seeing 100 BILLION galaxies, with each galaxy averaging 200 BILLION
stars. This telescope is named after Ed Hubble, who discovered that
the light coming from increasingly distant galaxies was increasingly RED
SHIFTED. Hubble erroneously attributed this to a BIG BANG
This Cosmological Constant is described by the Bible as the
windows of the heavens. Here are some key versus to help us understand
what the windows are, and are not:
18 can you join him in spreading out the skies,
hard as a mirror of cast bronze?
6 And God said, "Let there be a firmament in the
midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters."
7 And God made the firmament and separated the
waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above
the firmament. And it was so.
8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And
there was evening and there was morning, a second day.
1) extended surface (solid), expanse, firmament
1a) expanse (flat as base, support)
1b) firmament (of vault of heaven supporting waters above)
1b1) considered by Hebrews as solid and supporting 'waters' above

What all of this means is that the Sun, the Moon, and the
stars could have all been made on the same day (day four), but now, they
are very different in age. Our Sun and Moon having only aged to approximately
6,416 years old, while the stars are now varying in age up to billions
of years old, with the further away they are from us, the older they are.
This brings us back to the old church view that we are at the center of
Why open the windows? One reason is that perhaps the
from so many stars close to earth would have killed everything as the Bronze
Mirror of the Sky lost strength (after the flood).
11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in
the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day
all the fountains of the great deep burst forth, and the windows of the
heavens were opened.
window of heaven definition:
chimney (lattice opening where smoke escapes)
Two things happen in 7:11
THE FOUNTAINS OF THE GREAT DEEP BURST FORTH.
A great crack in the firmament called Heaven was made between what is now
the Americas and Europe / Africa. Then, the foundations supporting
the underground cavern were broken, and forced all of the subterranean
water out to the surface of the Earth, totally flooding it out.
THE WINDOWS OF THE HEAVENS WERE OPENED; an astronomical
repulsive force which increases as the windows are opened. It causes
time to pass by very quickly for the stars caught-up in it. As the
stars are moved away from earth at the time of Noah's flood, up to billions
of years pass by for them, while just 5 months pass by on earth.
Like Einstein's Cosmological Constant, it is opposite to gravity, being
a repulsive force. The "window" would be a transparent barrier to
a dimension beyond our normal three. Depending upon the degree that
the window is opened, the speed of the object caught-up in it could be
varied. I believe the mechanism that this works under is through
the movement of space itself. When a traveler goes through space
at increasing speeds, the traveler's time progresses slower and slower,
relative to Earth-based observations. This has been proven out as
a verifiable phenomenon during our country's space flights. Conversely,
I think that objects caught-up in an opening window of heaven are
not moving through space, but rather, the space in which they reside is
being moved in a trans-dimensional fashion. Here, Einstein's theory
of relativity can be though of in a reverse case situation, and would support
that stars caught-up in a moving reference frame of space would experience
time speeding-up, relative to our observations. So, the faster the
space containing a star is moved, the faster the star would progress forward
