Topic: Young Earth Creationism
Running Time: Approximately Two Hours
While the church has learned enough science to rarely take Darwin seriously, there are still a lot of us who haven’t looked into the age of the earth issue. Many in mainstream Christianity will say, “The plain reading of Genesis does indicate a six day creation, about 6,000 years ago, HOWEVER, modern science shows us (something something something) Millions of years.” But DOES modern science really support deep time? Or is there more to the story?
Obviously if there was not more to the story I would not have made this presentation, so I’ll ruin the surprise right now. Deep time fails at every level. First of all, as almost everyone already agrees, the Bible agrees with the young earth position. You’ll see how the old testament, the new testament, the words of Jesus, his Apostles, and even God’s words in the Ten Commandments CLEARLY communicate a “young” creation. We’ll also take a look at the language of Genesis 1 and see that Moses did everything a man could do to communicate the fact that the days of creation were days of creation.
We’ll look at some of the arguments which arise from within scripture which are used against the YEC position and see how they are all easily answered. Then we will take a look at the science of the Big Bang, as well as radio dating methods and see how neither is viable, and both are based on more assumptions than facts. Finally, we’ll go through a list of observations in the sciences which show that there is no way the earth is Billions of years old. Science and the Bible are in complete agreement- God’s word is true. In the Beginning, God made the Heavens and the Earth within a single week, about 6,000 years ago.
The Bible is true from the very first page, and you can trust it.
