Using ice penetrating radar, Professor Jonathan Bamber from Bristol
University, mapped a branching river valley that winds for over 400
miles through Greenland’s central plain. After cutting a deep gorge
through the coastal mountains, the river runs east to the sea. The
valley’s V-shaped walls and flat bottoms suggest that it formed by
running water, before Greenland was covered with kilometers of ice.
How do inland rivers cut
canyons through coastal mountains? A coastal mountain range runs from
Alaska to Mexico yet rivers that start in inland plains cut through the
mountains to reach the Pacific. Evidently, the rivers gradually incised the valleys as the mountains were simultaneously and steadily rising. How
old are the mountains? The Bible teaches two things that, to a western
mindset, are incompatible. It associates eon events with the Old
Testament era, but we live at the terminus of the eons. We read of the
birth of mountains (Psalm 90:2) that are compared to God’s olam ad olam
(eons upon eons) existence. Olam means a vast, out of sight, age.
The Bible does not mention mountains until 1656 years after creation. The
mountains rose as the waters of the cataclysm drained into wide valleys
(Psalm 104:6-8), which is evidently a reference to the beginning of
Drill cores show that the oldest modern sea was
the land-locked eastern Mediterranean. Scientists claim its floor is 270
million years old, older then the Pacific, the Arctic, Indian and
Atlantic oceans. According to the Bible, the Earth’s watery
division (palag) happened during Peleg’s days, four generations after
Noah. How can geological eons (mountains, incised canyons and new seas)
fit 6,000 years of biblical history?
The biblical Job lived about 4,000 years ago when dinosaurs still lounged in the Jordan. Job
used geological events as markers for the shortness of life in his
days. His geological events are: (1) mountains falling and crumbing, as
rocks continue to be moved from their place; (2) water-worn rocks; (3)
as water continually washes away the dust of the earth; (4) the sea
(Hebrew west) and streams dry. Drill cores confirm that the
Mediterranean (west of Job) dried eight times, leaving thick plankton
sandwiched between layers of gypsum, salt and stromatolite.
some Mediterranean basins, drill cores find over 2,000 meters of rock
salt that precipitated when the Mediterranean was a shallow salt march. A
great submarine canyon runs on the sea floor east of Gibraltar,
evidence for how the sea rapidly refilled from the young Atlantic.
According to scientists, the last Mediterranean drying occurred 5
millions years ago. Drill cores along the Nile valley show that it
incised a narrow gorge deeper and longer than the Grand Canyon as it ran
down into the mostly empty Mediterranean. Scientists estimate the early
Nile formed 35 million years ago. After the Mediterranean refilled for
the last time, the Nile canyon filled with silt and formed a delta. Job
ended his poem on the brevity of life by claiming their faces changed,
doubled, before they died. The skull is the only part of our skeleton
that grows as we age. If we lived for eons, our faces would grow
Neanderthal. Neanderthal infants had modern looking skulls, although
some had worn enamel on primary teeth, as though they were eons old.When most of the Old Testament was written, the western concept of an actual and linear time was as yet unimagined. (1)
Ancient people looked back with longing on their ancestors who, they
claimed, lived in a timeless, spring-like world. Josephus, the first
century historian wrote, “Now I have for witnesses, to what I have said,
all those that have written Antiquities, both among the Greeks and
Barbarians. For even Manetho, who wrote the Egyptian History; and
Berossus, who collected the Chaldean Monuments; and Mochus, and
Hestiæus, and, besides these, Hieronymus the Egyptian, and those that
composed the Phenician History, agree to what I here say. Hesiod also,
and Hecatæus, and Hellanicus, and Acusilaus; and, besides these, Ephorus
and Nicolaus relate that the ancients lived a thousand years.” (2)
The genealogies of many early nations are preserved in various
documents. The lists are similar to the biblical genealogies, often
mentioning the same people we find in Genesis 10. (3)
The Sumerian king list shows that the earliest kings reigned for tens of
thousands of years, while the last kings only reigned for decades.
Evidently the scribe was estimating the longer duration of ancient years
with shorter, later years. Jacob mentioned that his days and years are
shorter and worse than those of his fathers (Genesis 47:9), which would
have been understood literally in his days. (4)
people, including the biblical authors, mentioned close planet passages
and the shattering of a nearby planet. Indeed, we find thousands of
shattered planet fragments orbiting our Sun. They contain rocks formed
in liquid water (cubanite) and crystals formed under volcanic
conditions. Evidently solar system orbits were vastly different a few
thousand years ago.What causes days and years to continually shorten throughout history, as every old person has experienced?1. Atomic clocks in the ancient universe visibly clock tiny fractions of the frequencies of modern atoms.
When NASA compared hydrogen maser atomic clocks with their transponded
reflections from hours ago, the clocks-of the moment kept accelerating
relative to their previous speeds and to increasing distance. The clock
acceleration correlated with the Hubble ratio times the speed of light.
Hundreds of billions of ancient galaxies shine at lower frequencies, as
approximated by the Hubble ratio and the speed of light (the past).2.
We observe that clocks accelerate concurrently with the accelerating
star streams when we compare the light and shapes of galaxies at many
We observe at different ranges how star globs emerged
from the unformed matter in the core of each galaxy. What is visible confirms a the literal account of creation. We observe that as atoms change relationally, their clocks change frequency, matter
increases in volume and orbits accelerate outwards.3.
One who is trained scientifically could argue: even if gravity emerges
from changing atoms, it would take a steadily force on the Earth to
accelerate days and years continually (relative to former days and
years). I agree.
Gravity itself provides this force. Gravity
travels at a finite speed, the speed of light, which is known as gravity
aberration. Gravity aberration (delay in transit) causes gravity to
pull more on one side of the Earth than the other. This steadily
accelerates rotations and orbits simultaneously. It also causes all the
planets to have logarithmic spacing as we see in the solar system and
the planets around nearby stars. According to the Bible, God
commanded the plural eons to passively form out of things unseen. It is
the steady action of gravity aberration, which is unseen, that passively
produces vast eons in few years.
Galactic history is
the most powerful evidence for a literal biblical creation.
