Science Reveals the Age of the Universe

There is nothing more devastating to the doctrine of evolution than the scientific evidence of a young earth age. Without the millions and billions of years to justify the theoretical claim of the universe's slow evolutionary process, the theory becomes impossible and is defeated.

Those who oppose God's account of Creation do so to escape their full accountability to their Creator. These "did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. And for this reason God will send them a deluding influence so that they might believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth but took pleasure in wickedness" (1 Thes. 2:10-12).

By God's grace, man has the ability to research Creation. The twenty scientific observations described in this chapter point to a young earth and young solar system. They contain research into well-known processes and events of nature. When these are extrapolated backward in time, it becomes evident that every one of them has a very limited past age and that it is far less than those presented by evolutionists. These maximum time limits of the processes do not imply how long the time to their beginnings but do refute the claims that they began billions of years ago. God created the universe with all its natural laws and processes mature, fully functioning and with the appearance of age. Adam is a good example of apparent age. How old was he when he married? Was it not the first day of his life? Miracles of Creation did happen!

When all the information on the possible age of the universe is intelligently summed up, the conclusion results in an age limit of about six thousand to a maximum of eight thousand years. This agrees with the Biblical age covered in Chapter 9.

"Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever" (Dan. 12:3).
