WHEN DID THIS BEACH APPEAR?
“Jonathan, how long did it take for this beach to form on the edge of land?” asked Josephine.
We paused in our beach walk to bend down and pick up a handful of golden sand grains. I let them pour through my fingers. And what a soft, pleasant sensation it was! As the last grains fell away, I turned to my wife and replied, “Did you know that SANDY BEACHES, RAISED BEACHES, CAVES, COVES, ETC., do not need a long time to form?”
EARTH FEATURES FORMED RAPIDLY
In 1963, the new island of Surtsey appeared 45 miles south of Iceland. The following year a landing party found wide, sandy beaches, precipitous crags, gravel banks, lagoons, impressive cliffs resembling England’s White Cliffs, and faulted cliffs and boulders worn smooth by the surf, some of which were round. (Sigurdur Thorarinsson, Surtsey. Almenna, Reykjavik, Iceland, 1964) What a shock for our assumptions about dating! (Of course, I’m not talking here about boyfriend-girlfriend dating.)
BUT WHAT ABOUT STALACTITES?
Far from requiring vast aeons, stalactites can grow quite rapidly, given sufficient mineral-laden water. For centuries after the Great Flood, caves all over the world received greater seepage of lime-bearing water than now. In those wetter times, deposits formed very rapidly.
Oh, I must tell you about what was discovered in the basement of the Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne, Australia. Would you believe, large stalactites were found to have grown in only 59 years?
One was sent to Monash University and another to the National University in Canberra. They came back with declared ages of from 120,000 years minimum to 300,000 years maximum.
When this dating was challenged, a university response was: “But they HAVE TO be that old!”
The massive vaults beneath the shrine resemble the interior of limestone caves, with thousands of stalactites and stalagmites. In fact, stalactites have been found growing under many modern buildings.
So whenever you see one hanging from a building, try to figure out how many thousands of years old you think that building is! A skeptic may object, “Such stalactites prove nothing because they are not made of calcium carbonate (calcite) which takes long ages to form into stalactites in caves.
Wrong! Recent X-ray diffractions of bridge stalactites collected by Vance Nelson prove they ARE made of calcium carbonate, and not of either gypsum or hydromagnesite. Skeptic, bite your tongue!
BUT DIDN’T FOSSIL CORAL REEFS TAKES AGES TO FORM?
Are fossil coral reefs proof of long aeons of time?
No. And they’re different from modern reefs.
“Closer inspection of many of these ancient carbonate ‘reefs’ reveals that they are composed largely of carbonate mud with the larger skeletal particles ‘floating’ within the mud matrix.
“Conclusive evidence for a rigid framework does not exist in most of the ancient carbonate mounds.” (H. Blatt, G. Middleton and R. Murray, Origin of Sedimentary Rocks. Prentice-Hall, 1972, p.410) For example, the E1 Capitan Permian “reef complex” fossil-bearing lithified lime transported into place from elsewhere.
BUT WHAT ABOUT THE VAST AGE OF OIL?
Oil (formed by fossilised animal matter) and coal (vegetable matter) are said to be millions of years old. But are they? Quite frequently, abnormally high pressures of up to 8,000 psi are encountered in deep oil wells. Often when a new well is tapped, a gusher goes spouting into the air due to the tremendous pressure trapped below.
According to measured values of the permeability of surrounding rock, such pressures would dissipate in thousands, not millions of years. If those oil deposits had been there for more than 5,000 years in some cases there would be no pressure left!
Since the pressure is still there (often seeping at the surface), the rock formations containing the oil must be “young”.
BUT WHAT ABOUT ANTARCTIC ICE?
In 1930, Admiral Richard Byrd established a base in Antarctica. Since that time, the ice has piled higher, so that of his 110 foot radio towers, just a few feet now protrude above the icy surface. At that rate, the ice cover is only 7,000 years old, not a million.
But since the build-up must have been more rapid during the Ice Age, it is probably very much younger even than 7,000 years. But what about the annual ice rings? Don’t they prove long ages?
Not at all. You see, these are not NOT rings made annually, but daily, by the alternating warmer day and colder night temperatures. This is now conclusively proved – despite misguided articles in such places as “Scientific American”!!! (See my report in “The Corpse Came Back”pages 236-238.)
THE MILLIONS OF YEARS THAT JUST AREN’T THERE
But what about canyons? Surely they have to be millions of years old?? Many of us were taught in school that when you see a canyon with a river running through it, you assume that the river took a long time to erode the canyon. How easy it is to come to wrong conclusions if you were not present to see an event, and if you don’t have access to all information!
When Mount St. Helens erupted in 1980, some associated events accomplished in days, geological work that would normally be interpreted as having taken millions of years. Little Grand Canyon (about a one-fortieth scale model of the Grand Canyon) is around 100 feet deep and somewhat wider.
Little Grand Canyon was formed IN ONE DAY from a mud-flow that eroded material which had been blocking the North Fork of the Toutle River. The new river subsequently flowed through the canyon formed by the mud flow.
Engineers’ Canyon, 200 feet wide, was formed, with a tiny stream flowing through it. The stream did not slowly form the canyon; this canyon formed the stream. At Loowit Canyon, mud blasted through hard rock to cut the canyon in a short time. Perhaps we should realise that engineers have a tool used to cut steel, which basically uses water under pressure.
Likewise, here, in this blast zone of the Mt. st. Helens volcanic eruption, water, mud and steam, under pressure, produced results in a very short time that evolutionists are telling the world would take millions of years.
In Little Grand Canyon, a hurricane velocity wind of 100 miles per hour (160 kilometres per hour) laid down in just one day a minutely layered strata deposit.
This 25-feet-thick deposit consisted of THOUSANDS of thin strata (layers) – layer upon layer of material, formed by flowing ‘rivers’ of volcanic ASH. Now, just pause and think hard. Did the Grand Canyon strata really need millions of years to form?
Would you bet your life on it?
This gets intensely interesting. That’s why I could not keep this and other discoveries to myself. So many folk have been asking me to share information about these wonders. That’s why the ebook “The Killing of Paradise Planet” was produced. If you want to see what else is tucked away in there, just take a visit now to http://www.beforeus.com/first.php
ANCIENT PATRIARCHS SAYS: According to hydrological research from Dr. Guy Berthault the erosion layers below our feet were not formed slowly top down as surmised for over a century, but several layers sideways and very fast. This true empirical research proved that the Geological time scale is totally overrated, and that time needed was less than one percent of the so-called billions of years it took.
Are you still going to hold on to this scientifically un-founded belief? Or settle for the true empirical research results? I guess it depends if you are a true empirical scientist.
