Seeking the truth about Earth
To the editor:
The Feb. 19, 2021 ‘Amazing science starts on Mars’ stated that scientists believe that if life ever flourished on Mars, it would have happened 3 billion to 4 billion years ago, when water still flowed on the planet.
Two assumptions are made:
1. Life just starts up from a few dead chemicals, which amazingly produce self-assembling molecular machinery, ever growing in complexity as it proceeds up the intelligence ladder from microbes to animals and finally humans.
2. Our planet earth and the others have been around for billions of years.
After many years of studying these topics and others within hundreds of weekly issues of the prestigious AAAS ‘Science’ publication, various books, and applying a little common sense I realized:
1. Radiometric dating of rocks is just more ‘smoke and mirrors’ sophistry that ignores the scientific method and instead builds assumption upon assumption while ignoring real empirical data that the rocks and other physical phenomena are pointing to an earth of less than 10,000 years old, most probably about 6,000 years.
2. I am convinced the only reason ‘Old Age of Earth’ is kept alive is to prop up the rapidly rotting corpse of “Evolution”.The religion of Evolution needs vast amounts of ‘time’ to do its magical wonders. Macro-evolution (molecules to man without intellectual input) is dead. One of the greatest contributors to it’s death is the medical community, driven by its mandate to cure disease. Researchers have found themselves stumbling into a bottomless pit of new and extremely complicated information within the vast world of molecular machinery churning away in the cells that make up ‘Life’.
The 3-10-2021 ‘The problem with following the science’ remarked: “Today’s settled science is often tomorrow’s ‘I can’t believe we said that.” The statement certainly applies to these 2 topics; plus man-make global warming.
Educate yourself, read books like ‘Darwin Devolves’ by Michael Behe, 2019. and ‘Carved in Stone by Tim Clarey, 2020).
Truth won’t necessarily make you rich, but it will set you free.
