Carbon dating pitfalls
Much scientific effort has been expended in an attempt to show that eons of time are available for evolution."Just what is time? It is merely a lot of past moments just like the present moment. Since a living creature would have to come into existence all at once suddenly, in all its parts--in order to survive, it matters not how many ages we pile onto the watching; nothing is going to happen! It surely is not scientific to imagine that perhaps it came true when no one was looking.Imagine yourself staring at a dirt pile or at some seawater, at a time when there was nothing alive in the world but yourself. There is no evidence that self-originating life or evolving life is happening now, has ever happened, or could ever happen.*G.
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 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.The evolutionist tells us that, given enough time, all the insurmountable obstacles to spontaneous generation will somehow vanish and life can suddenly appear, grow, and flourish.In the next three chapters, we will learn that even split-second, continuous, multiple chemical activity going on for ages, and using all time and all space in the universe to carry on that activity, could not accomplish what is needed.Can time change rocks into raccoons, seawater into turkeys, or sand into fish?
Can time invent human hormones, the telescopic eye of an eagle, or cause the moon to orbit the earth? The truth is that the longer the time, the greater the decay, and the less possibility that evolution could occur.
This will be covered in the chapters, Primitive Environment (chapter 9), and DNA (chapter 10).
Third, evolution of living organisms into more advanced life forms by natural selection or mutations.
If it is tried a million times and still has not occurred, then the possibility of it occurring has reduced to less than one chance in a million!
The point here is that time never works in favor of an event that cannot happen!
This was dealt with in the chapter by that name (chapter 1).
