Here I Go Again: Correcting a Darwinist (Scharnagel)

Sigh. I can’t believe that I must do this again. Jim Scharnagel recently responded to my last column (Answering Liberal’s ‘Gotcha’ Questions). In attempting to “correct” me, he makes a very common mistake when it comes to Darwinian evolution that no seasoned Darwinist (I think he would consider himself one) should EVER make.

Mr. Scharnagel states that “Techniques such as carbon dating have proven dinosaurs lived 265 to 65 million years ago, and remains of our ancestors have been unearthed dating back to 6 or 7 million years.” As I have noted often before, carbon-14 dating CANNOT date objects to be millions of years old. Because of the rate of decay of carbon, it can only date objects to thousands of years—at best a few ten-thousands of years.

He then asks, “How else could you account for all those ancient fossils?” How about a global flood? (“Billions of dead things buried in rock layers laid down by water all over the earth.”)

He also asks some other very good questions: “How could two people produce today’s population of more than 7 billion people in 9,000 or so years? Where did Cain and Seth get wives? How could Noah get all the Earth’s terrestrial animals into his tiny ark for 40 days and nights? And what about the plants?”

Some answers (from Genesis!)
