Creationist Trolling
« on: July 31, 2012, 06:04:26 AM »

There are scores of scientific ways to show that the Earth and universe are not "billions of years old." Here are a few of them:

The Sun is losing 5 million tons per second. At this rate several million years ago the Sun's gravity would have been much stronger, pulling the Earth into it.

The Earth's spin is slowing down about 1/1000 of a second per day. Because of this fact we have a "leap second" where a second is added to the clock every 10 months. Millions of years ago the Earth would have been spinning so fast that life on Earth would have been impossible.

The distance to the Moon is increasing with each revolution. since the Moon obviously used to be closer to the Earth, and the Moon causes the tides, the tides would have been great enough to drown everyone on Earth only a few million years ago.

The thin layer of dust on the Moon, the small amount of sediment in the oceans, the rate of heat loss of Earth, Jupiter, lo, and other bodies in space, the erosion rate of the mountains, the weakening magnetic field, the small (though increasing) amount of salt in the ocean, the small human population (compared to the growth rate), the rate cave formations develop and a host of other facts from all branches of science show that the earth is not billions of years old.

The Earth is only 5772 years old. The Earth had a higher concentration of oxygen prior to the Flood in 2102 BC, due to the vapor canopy, creating a giant hyperbaric chamber that extended lifespans.

The biggest problem with dating methods is the assumption that the rate of decay has remained constant.

After a post using constant rates of change as arguments for everything. :thumbsup:

I thought the same thing, but since the title basically calls the topic out as trolling I figured calling out his self-refuting logic would be silly and unnecessary.
