Death before Sin and other Proofs
by Josiah Greaver
First, if a christian does not believe in six literal days, he believes in death before sin. The Gap theory results in death before sin. And someone takes the word "day" in Genesis to mean anything other than an actual day, he is taking it out of context. I'm not going to go into all the detail of the hebrew meaning and the context clues of "evening and morning," because it's very easy to look up for yourself.
Second, there are no proofs of a 4.7 million year old earth. The only thing scientists can cling to is radioactive dating and carbon dating. However, there are numerous, numerous problems with these dating techniques. For example, seals that were killed for testing have been carbon dated to be over 8,000 years old. Once again, go look up all the problems.
Also, there are many proofs of a young earth. The moon, which is said by scientists to have been "formed" not long after Earth, provides us with proof. The moon collects dust over time. This is a known fact. If the moon, and earth are as old as scientists claim, there would be over 20 feet of dust on the moon. Go look this up if you don't believe me about this fact. Also, radiohalos, which were discussed in the article, are a DEFINITE proof of a young Earth. There is no way around it. Other proofs consist of river delta formation, ocean dust formation, the fact that there has never been a proof of meteor craters anywhere excempt is earth's crust, the spin of the earth, earth's magnetic field, lunar isotopes, natural gas, and the nuclear gap at masses 5 and 8 for Hydrogen and Helium.
