He argued that initially there had been a Pre-Adamic age that had been destroyed by a flood and then the strata and fossils found today were the remains of this former world.Textbooks, popular science articles and museum displays are always careful to include and even emphasize the age in Earth history in which early creatures lived. Have they somehow determined the age of the actual fossil or the rock in which it was found? God created Adam and Eve on the first Friday, and they were told to eat "of every tree whose fruit yields seed, to you it shall be for food" (Genesis -30).The net result is that every living thing contains normal carbon (C-12) and some C-14. If light from the most distant stars has taken millions of light years to reach us, how can the earth be only thousands of years old?The belief that "light from the most distant stars has taken millions of years to reach us" is based on two major assumptions: (1) the distance and (2) the speed at which light travels.Following God's very last act of creation – that is, the creation of Eve on the first Friday evening – He blessed both Adam and Eve, then gave them their mandate: "Be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth. every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food… I have given every green herb for food (Genesis -30). From the start, Darwin's evolution depended upon vast spans of unprovable time to make his theory work, and Charles Lyell's geology seemed to provide multiple millions of years.As early as 1812, Thomas Chalmers, evangelical professor of theology at Edinburgh, proposed a gap of as many millions of years as geology may demand between Genesis 1:2 and 1:3.
Also, how many animals would Noah have had on the Ark?One of the primary evidences claimed for an old universe – and, by implication, an Earth billions of years old – is that light from the most distant stars can be observed on Earth today.It is argued that at the known speed or velocity of light it will have taken a great deal longer than, say, 6,000 years for it to have traveled from the distant stars to Earth.The subject of dinosaurs captures the fancy of every school kid.They are told that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago, long before any human walked upon the earth.So they were vegetarians and ate the fruits from every tree except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Genesis -17).
