Likelihood of spontaneous Life The problem with most theories for the Origin of life, is that even with all the ingredients needed to build life in some primeordeal soup, the odds of them combining in the right sequence to create a primitive self-replicating structure are slim. Chemists and biologists look for ways that a primitive self-replicating structure, such as a rudimentary RNA enzyme, or ribozyme, might spring up naturally. Yet even a primitive ribozyme is a complicated structure, requiring 165 base-pair molecules to be strung together in the right order. In fact 4165 possible structures – most of which are not self replicators – could be made from the same starting ingredients. 4165 is more than the number of electrons in the Universe.

Laws of change Of old You laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands. They will perish, but You will endure; yes, all of them will grow old like a garment; like a cloak You will change them, and they will be changed. But You are the same, and Your years will have no end.Psalm 102:25-27

The Earth’s Magnetic Field Earth's Magnetic Field Is Fading John Roachfor National Geographic News September 9, 2004 Earth's magnetic field is fading. Today it is about 10 percent weaker than it was when German mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss started keeping tabs on it in 1845, scientists say.
Moon-dust How old is the earth?
Young Earth • The earth’s crust is about 12 miles thick on average. • In a universe that approaches absolute zero, which is -459 degrees F. • The earth has a hot core that is over 7,000 degrees F. • Hot lava bursts out of the earth's crust from volcanos all around the world on a regular basis! • If the earth were billions of years old, it should have turned into an ice ball long ago, many times over.
Carbon 14 Dating • “The troubles of the radiocarbon dating method are undeniably deep and serious. Despite 35 years of technological refinement and better understanding, the underlying assumptions have been strongly challenged, and warnings are out that radiocarbon may soon find itself in a crisis situation. Continuing use of the method depends on a “fix it as we go” approach, allowing for contamination here, fractionation there, and calibration whenever possible. It should be no surprise, then, that fully half of the dates are rejected. The wonder is, surely, that the remaining half come to be accepted.No matter how ‘useful’ it is, though, the radiocarbon method is still not capable of yielding accurate and reliable results. There are gross discrepancies, the chronology is uneven and relative, and the accepted dates are actually selected dates.”[Lee, Robert. “Radiocarbon, Ages in Error,” Anthropological Journal of Canada, Vol. 19, No. 3, 1981, pp9,29.]
The Primeval World -- Fossils, Geology & Earth History • Cambrian Rocks show at last 2,000 species • Precambrian rocks are devoid of fossils • Vertebrate fish have no links • Amphibians have no links • A gap between the amphibians and the reptiles is found • Mammals are assumed to have evolved from the reptiles, but no links
The Primeval World -- Fossils, Geology & Earth History Creation: 1. Life was created rapidly 2. The kinds have impassable genetic boundaries. 3. The major part of the fossiliferous sedimentary rock was deposited in one or more global catastrophic events. 4. The creation occurred around B.C. 4,000
The Primeval World -- Fossils, Geology & Earth History Evolution: 1. The earth came into being through extremely slow processes. 2. Original single-celled organisms arose spontaneously and then evolved to produce all species of plants and animals. 3. The earth's surface and crust were produced very slowly by the same processes and at similar rates to those observed today. 4. The ages of the universe, the earth and life on earth are measured in billions of years.

volution or reation? • Intelligent, Purposeful Design in Nature • Science proves the Bible true, not evolution • The Universe around is decays, not evolves • Physical Scientific Laws do not allow Evolution • Evidence points to a young earth • The probability of random creation is zero • The assumptions of Evolution are flawed • Fossil records correspond to creation
