Evolution Says....

The geological processes of the earth take millions of years to occur. This proves that the earth is billions of years old.

The Facts Are .....

Fact #1

Within a few months of the formation of the island of Surtsey as a result of an undersea volcanic eruption in 1963, it already had a mature landscape. By 1964 geologists observed that it had sandy beaches, precipitous crags, boulders worn almost round by the surf, gravel banks, lagoons, sheer cliffs, hollows, glens, and soft undulating land. All these geological structures had been formed while the island was still spewing lava from an active volcano. Sigurdur Thorarinsson, "Surtsey: The New Island in the North Atlantic" [1] [2]

Fact #2

"..... in one week's time we witness changes that elsewhere might take decades or even centuries

..... Despite the extreme youth of the growing island, we now encounter a landscape so varied that it is almost beyond belief." Icelandic geologist Sigurdur Thorarinsson describing how geological processes can actually occur over extremely short periods of time. Written in his article "Surtsey: Island Born of Fire" [3]

Fact #3

"..... the timescale he had been trained to attach to geological developments is misleading when assessments are made of the forces - constructive and destructive - which have molded and are still molding the face of Iceland. What elsewhere may take thousands of years may be accomplished here in one century. All the same he is amazed whenever he comes to Surtsey, because the same development may take a few weeks or even days here." Icelandic geologist Sigurdur Thorarinsson describing the occurrence of very rapid geological processes. Written in his book "Surtsey: The New Island in the North Atlantic", [4]

Fact #4

As a result of the Mount St. Helens volcanic eruption on March 19, 1982:- (1) a mudflow eroded a canyon system up to 43 m deep in the Toutle River Valley; (2) a flat plain of pumice deposited on May 18, 1980, was eroded to a depth of 30 m by August, 1984; (3) a 30 m deep canyon, known as

'Little Grand Canyon', formed from a mud-flow in just one day during the eruption; & (4) new strata, 183m deep and made of thousands of tiny layers a few millimetres thick, was formed in just one day. [5] [6]

Fact #5

An investigation of 'precambrian' granite rocks by chemistry researcher Robert Gentry (Oak Ridge National Laboratory) has revealed that they contain polonium radiohalos which are isolated from any uranium. As polonium is a radio-breakdown product of uranium, uranium should be found with the polonium. But, as there is no associated uranium, the polonium would have had to migrate there when the granite was still molten. Polonium-218, however, has a very short life-span of 3 minutes, so perfect halos would not have formed in the long time periods inferred from evolutionary geology. [7]

Fact #6

Evolutionary theory attributes Lake Eyre's past to a rainforest 45 million years ago. This age assessment is based on the age attributed to fossilized leaves, wood, seeds and fruit found in the area.

Some of these 'ancient' specimens, however, have been found preserved in mud that was still soft enough to put a spade through. These mummified plant specimens were in "almost the same condition as any growing today". The leaves have been reported to be totally unchanged, with no mineralization,

"exactly like living leaves". This exposure of fossil evidence provided by a government laboratory technical officer is evidence pointing to the erroneous age-dating methods, and the fallacy of long geologic periods. [8]
