4 Evidences for a Young Earth

22 Nov, 202332:44

Everybody has heard—repeatedly—that the earth is billions of years old. People are led to believe that this is an unassailable scientific fact.

It’s not! There are many people—including well-qualified scientists—who believe the evidence can be read quite differently. In fact, there are numerous lines of evidence that contradict the millions/billions-of-years idea, and instead point to a relatively ‘young’ Earth!

Join Dr Don Batten for an illuminating discussion of just four such evidences. (And for many more evidences, see Related Content, below.)

⏳ TIMESTAMPS ⌛

  • 00:00 Teaser
  • 00:25 Introduction: Four (of MANY) evidences the earth is young
  • 01:30 Evidence 1: Soft tissue and other fragile organic compounds in fossils
  • 01:36 → 1.1 In dinosaurs
  • 02:38 → 1.2 In things said to be much older than dinosaurs
  • 04:12 → 1.3 How do we know organic compounds can’t last that long?
  • 05:56 → 1.4 How have long-age believers explained the discrepancies?
  • 06:05 → 1.4.1 Rescue Device #1: Bacterial biofilms
  • 06:58 → 1.4.2 Rescue Device #2: Iron from red blood cells
  • 08:05 → 1.4.3 Rescue Device #3: Toast theory
  • 09:47 Evidence 2: Carbon-14 in things said to be millions of years old
  • 09:54 → 2.1 What is carbon-14?
  • 11:33 → 2.2 How does carbon-14 provide evidence for a young Earth?
  • 13:16 → 2.2.1 Example #1: Fossil wood from Crinum Coal Mine
  • 15:07 → 2.2.2 Example #2: Fossil wood from Hawkesbury Sandstone
  • 16:02 → 2.2.3 Example #3: Carbon-14 throughout the fossil record
  • 19:32 Evidence 3: Not enough sedimentation to form the fossil record
  • 20:16 → 3.1 Average yearly sedimentation rate throughout the fossil record
  • 21:55 → 3.2 How much sediment, deposited how fast, is needed to form fossils?
  • 24:28 Evidence 4: Absence of bioturbation in the rock record
  • 24:36 → 4.1 What is bioturbation?
  • 27:40 → 4.2 Even secular experts acknowledge the problem
  • 28:37 Long ages don’t fit the evidence, but people are brainwashed to believe they MUST
  • 29:27 Conclusion: Why does any of this even matter?
