2596So sad that people think like this
- Nov 18, 2006Here's this week's dose of idiocy from "Answers in Genesis" - my favorite
weekly comedy email.
Q: Some Australian scientists reported they'd found an Aboriginal site to be
176,000 years old. Don't solid dates like this disprove the Bible?
A: The problem is, most people don't realize how “solid” these dates
Huge publicity was given to the report that scientists had dated this
Aboriginal site to be around 176,000 years old. However, some independent experts
have looked at the data and said that on the basis of their experiments, this
date should be changed to 20,000 years! What an incredible difference—156,000
years different than what the other scientists had stated.
Then, another scientist said that when he checked the data on a sample dated
at 50,000 years, his figure would be 5,000 years or less! So much for “solid”
So what dates are solid? The answers can be obtained from the only truly
reliable history book: the Bible. Scientists continually flip-flip on their
dates, overturning the dates that were once considered solid. Knowing that the
Bible says Noah's Flood occurred about 4,500 years ago helps us understand that
Australian Aboriginal history has taken place in under 4,500 years—and that
the Bible, not science, gives us a solid foundation for understanding history.
One book is all you need! Let's burn the libraries!
