Geology

 

In a remote part of Utah lies Kodachrome Basin State Park. The National Geographic Society named this park because of its beauty. Some 60 towering stone spires jut up from the valley floor and are displayed against the backdrop of multi-colored sandstone layers. Evolutionists are at a loss to explain how these spires formed. When we put on our biblical glasses, we can view their formation from the Flood perspective.

 

During the Flood, many sedimentary layers were laid down. One of the layers would have been a squishy sand layer. Earthquakes could have caused this squishy sand mixture to be injected upward through the other sedimentary layers, like toothpaste being squished upward in its tube. This “plume” of sand then cemented together. At the end of the Flood, waters eroded the less cemented layers away, leaving the cemented plumes or sand pipes. Clusters of sand pipes can be found in other remote parts of the Colorado plateau. This same formation can be seen with mounds, like Ayers Rock in Australia. The sand plumes can be traced down to the source layer of sand. Secular geologists believe that the source bed was millions of years old prior to its injection. Would the source bed remain uncemented for millions of years? Hardly. These sedimentary sand pipes give evidence that there was little time between the layers being laid down, injected and eroded. The fact that sand pipes exist at all is evidence that little time passed from deposition to squeezing.

 

And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

For more than 100 years, oil or “black gold” has fueled our cars,  trucks and economy. But how did these vast fields of oil form? The chemistry of oil offers some important clues. One of the chemicals in crude oils is porphyrin. Most petroleum geologists believe crude oils form mostly from plants, such as diatoms (single-celled marine and freshwater photosynthetic creatures), and beds of coal (huge fossilized masses of plant debris). The moderate heating of brown coals in the lab can produce crude oil and natural gas containing porphyrin. Keep in mind that animal blood also contains porphyrins. Oil can be made from animal slaughterhouse waste within two hours.

 

For porphyrins to be present in today’s crude oils means they have been kept from the presence of oxygen because porphyrins break down rapidly in the presence of oxygen. We do not see oil containing porphyrins forming today because oxygen destroys them during the oil formation. Yet worldwide, we find vast petroleum deposits that do contain this chemical. This supports the conclusion that much of the world’s oil reserves are the direct result of a worldwide catastrophic flood covering trillions of pounds of vegetation and animals. They were buried so rapidly that oxygen was not present to destroy the porphyrins. Deep rapid burial by additional sediments would have created sufficient heat to generate crude oils and natural gases. Subsequently, these migrated, became trapped in reservoir rocks, and accumulated to form gas and oil deposits. So, from what is oil made? Primarily squished vegetation and animals that were rapidly buried in the Flood of Noah’s day.

 

And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth….

How old are diamonds? Scientists have found carbon-14 in diamonds. Carbon-14 (C) has a half-life of 5730 years, and so anything older than 100,000 years should contain no detectable levels of C. Finding C in diamonds means they are less than 100,000 years old. Yet all diamonds contain measurable amounts of C even though they are the hardest known naturally occurring substance, which is impervious to outside contamination. C in diamonds means they are young. There are also other clues revealing the actual age of diamonds.

 

Kimberlite is a volcanic rock which often contains diamonds. These carrot-shaped rocky tubes begin at the earth’s mantle and rapidly carried diamonds from deep within the earth to the surface. A wooden log that was fresh and unpetrified has been discovered deep within a Canadian kimberlite pipe. There have been other such reports of finding unpetrified wood in kimberlite pipes. How did this wood get deep within the earth, and why is it not petrified or rotted if it has been there for millions of years? Scientists think the logs got there by local catastrophic forces. Fresh unpetrified wood in the same rock as diamonds means diamonds are young. Also, consider that artificial diamonds are rapidly made by the exact same processes of high pressure and temperature as natural diamonds. An artificial diamond can be made in the same amount of time that it takes to wash a car! If we can make artificial diamonds so rapidly, why would we assume it takes billions of years to make natural diamonds?

 

The evidence of C in diamonds, fresh wood found in kimberlite, and the ability to rapidly make artificial diamonds all cry out, “The earth is young.”

 

[Mankind] putteth forth his hand upon the rock; he overturneth the mountains by the roots…where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?

During the Flood of Noah’s day not only was the earth covered with water but also with a large number of volcanoes. In fact, you can travel to the very throat of one of these super volcanoes, Yellowstone National Park. That’s right; almost the entire park is a collapsed volcanic cone or caldera. It is 44 miles long and 34 miles wide and covers 1500 square miles in area. Imagine this super volcano spewing out ash and lava!

 

Evolutionary geology believes in enormous time periods, so it places eruptions that formed the Yellowstone area at 2.1, 1.2, and 0.64 million years ago. Yet these dates are based on dating methods that have been proven to be both inaccurate and subjective. The fact that the collapsed caldera of Yellowstone remains geologically active – creating the geysers, mud pots, hot springs, and fumaroles found throughout the area - actually testifies to its recent creation during the Flood of Noah about 4400 years ago. It remains hot and active because the eruption which created this area DID NOT occur millions of years ago. The underground magma remains hot and close to the surface because the entire area was recently created.

 

In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

Scientists have discovered that gold veins can be produced in an instant (a few tenths of a second) and do not require huge time periods. Veins of gold are produced when hot fluids flowing through cracks deep in the earth’s crust depressurize rapidly - causing the minerals and metals to fall out of the hot fluid solution. The “flash deposition” of gold is a result of earthquakes opening up cracks. Gold can often be found in these sideways, zigzagging fault jogs - cracks that are connected to main fault lines in rocks. Earthquakes can make gold veins in an instant as cracks open and the pressure drops, causing the precious metals to be flash deposited. Gold does not take millions of years to form within the rock layers of the earth. During the Flood of Noah’s day, there would have been intense earthquake activity that could have produced gold in a flash as it precipitated out of solution.

 

It is sad how much death, human misery, slavery, and corruption has been caused by the search for gold and riches. Heaven is described as a place where gold is so common the streets are paved with it. Things humans typically value (such as gold) turn out to be rather commonplace in the end. The world desires gold, yet gold pales in comparison to God’s Word and the wisdom and meaning it can bring to our lives.

 

More to be desired [is God’s Word] than gold, yea, than much fine gold:….

Every day, cliffs are weathering away. Water seeps into tiny crevices and separates the rock by freezing (expanding) and then thawing (contracting). Tree roots make gaps in the rocks, and rainwater can cause chemical changes to weaken rock. Every year at Mt. Rushmore, workers rappel down the cliff face to inject glue into newly formed cracks on the presidents’ faces.

 

Normal cliffs erode rapidly. Weakened cliffs result in rocks tumbling to the canyon floor. These rocks on the canyon floor are called talus. If you believe in evolution and the earth having been here for billions of years, these talus piles should be enormous - reaching to the top of the cliff. Yet, what we see in places like Monument Valley or the Grand Canyon talus piles are small. To an evolutionist, this is a mystery. Where is all the missing talus that must have formed over millions of years? Why are the world’s talus piles/slopes so skimpy?

 

If we view these talus slopes from a biblical viewpoint, however, it confirms the Bible. The piles of talus are so skimpy because they are only thousands of years old, having begun at the end of the Flood of Noah’s time (about 4400 years ago). The mystery of the missing talus is not a mystery at all when viewed from a biblical perspective.

 

The waters wear the stones: thou washest away the things which grow out of the dust of the earth.

If the Genesis Flood took place, what kind of rock layers would have been produced? One such strong evidence supporting the biblical Flood is the world-wide occurrence of folded rock layers. Geologists find entire strata sequences that are folded without fracturing. This is only possible if the sedimentary layers were still soft and pliable (like modeling clay) when bent. In the same manner, if the molding clay dries out, it becomes hard and brittle, unable to bend without breaking or shattering. Many of these folded rock sequences show no sign of breaking or shattering.

 

So how do evolutionary (huge time period) geologists explain this? They ASSUME that deep in the earth, under enormous pressure and high temperatures, rocks can bend without shattering. Yet if this were true, the characteristics of the rocks would be changed by the heat. They would show metamorphism. When geologists examine many of these folded rocks, they find no evidence of metamorphism; therefore, these rocks were bent without enormous pressure and high temperatures. These folded sedimentary rocks are still sedimentary rocks! This can only mean that these folded rocks were still soft and pliable when folded. During the Genesis Flood, there would have been rapid movements of the plates on the earth’s crust.

 

No sooner would the floodwaters have laid down great quantities of sand and mud than rapidly moving plates would have pushed the sediment while still soft and pliable - resulting in folded rocks. The Genesis Flood would have been a powerfully destructive event leaving this type of evidence around the world.

 

And I will establish my covenant with you, neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there anymore be a flood to destroy the earth.

The White Cliffs of Dover are an impressive sight. These stark white cliffs, over 1300 feet thick, are made of 98% pure, fine-grained calcium carbonate (commonly known as chalk). This sedimentary layer formed from the cells of microorganisms called foraminifera and common calcareous algae known as coccoliths and rhabdoliths. At today’s accumulation rate, millions of years would be needed to form a sedimentary layer this thick, and this is used as a prime example of why the rock layers of the earth must be millions of years old. But there are several problems with this assumption.

 

First of all, there is nowhere on earth today where chalk of this purity is forming. As plankton and algae die and slowly settle to the bottom of oceans, their shells become mixed with sediment and the remains of many other creatures. In order to form a pure layer of chalk, a massive amount of organisms would need to die, settle, and be buried extremely rapidly.

 

Second, the commonly quoted average accumulation rate (½ inch per thousand years) is characteristic of current conditions. Explosive growth of ocean microorganisms would have been common at various times during the Flood of Noah’s time. What typically limits the growth of algae in water are temperature, mixing, carbon dioxide concentration, and nitrogen nutrition sources. At unique locations during the Flood, enormous volumes of warm ocean waters would have been filled with nutrients from decaying vegetation and with massive amounts of CO2 from volcanic activity. All of this would have led to ideal conditions for explosive chalk-forming microorganism blooms. Today we only observe small localized bloom areas; during the Flood, there would have been large regional blooms resulting in the geological features we see today such as the White Cliffs of Dover. These blooms (with the organisms dying, settling to the bottom and being rapidly buried) would have happened in a matter of weeks, not millions of years! The White Cliffs of Dover proclaim that Noah’s Flood did happen, just as Scripture tells us.

 

Then I beheld all the work of God, that a man cannot find out the work that is done under the sun: because though a man labour to seek it out, yet he shall not find it; yea farther; though a wise man think to know it, yet shall he not be able to find it.
