In fact, not even the dating methods confirm the dating methods! With but very rare exception, they always disagree with one another!There are a number of very definite problems in those dating methods.This is an important topic, for evolutionists want the history of earth to span long ages in the hopes that this will make the origin and evolution of life more likely.Yes, an understanding of dating methods is important, but we should keep in mind that whether or not these dating methods are accurate, really has no direct relation to whether evolution has ever occurred or could occur. Evolution can only occur by a sequence of, first, production of matter from nothing, or origin of matter.That is the theory, yet the facts speak far differently.When we look at those facts, as available from ancient studies of all types, we find that recorded history goes back only several thousand years.Apart from recorded history, which goes back no farther than about 2200-3000 B.
Second, generation of living organisms from non-living matter, or origin of life.
It could not produce life out of nothing."It is no secret that evolutionists worship at the shrine of time.
There is little difference between the evolutionist saying 'time did it' and the creationist saying ' God did it.' Time and chance is a two-headed deity. Just piled sand or sloshing seawater, and that is all there would be to it.
In contrast, two of England's leading evolutionary scientists, *Hoyle and Wickramasinghe, working independently of each other, came to a different conclusion than Bernal's: The chance of life appearing spontaneously from non-life in the universe is effectively zero! Wickramasinghe, Evolution from Space.) One of these researchers is an agnostic and the other a Buddhist, yet both decided from their analyses that the origin of life demands the existence of God to have created it.
They wrote:"Once we see, however, that the probability of life originating at random is so utterly minuscule as to make it absurd, it becomes sensible to think that the favorable properties of physics, on which life depends, are in every respect deliberate [i.e., produced by an intelligent mind] . It is, therefore, almost inevitable that our own measure of intelligence must reflect higher intelligences . even to the limit of God."The London Dally Express (August 14, 1981), put the conclusion of these two scientists into headlines: "Two skeptical scientists put their heads together and reach an amazing conclusion: There must be a God."*Hoyle and *Wickramasinghe concluded in their book that the probability of producing life anywhere in the universe from evolutionary processes, was as reasonable as getting a fully operational Boeing 747 jumbo jet from a tornado going through a junkyard.
