20,000 years ago there would have been enough "Joule" heat generated by the earth's magnetic field to liquefy the entire earth!
Niagara Falls . . . not millions of years old!
The relatively small size of the Mississippi River Delta is another proof that the earth is NOT millions of years old!
No known coral formation on earth needs to be older than 3,500 years! Coral grows slowly but it does not take millions or even hundreds of thousands of years to form huge coral reefs!
The giant sequoias of California are over 4,000 years old and date back to the time following Noah's Flood!

Is Earth Really As Old As We Have Been Told?
Everything around us points to a young earth . . . SO where's the proof?
Earth Rotation: The 24-hour spin of the earth (about 1,000 miles (1609 km) per hour), is gradually slowing down. Gravitational drag forces of the sun, moon, and other factors cause this. If the earth were really billions of years old as some "evolutionary scientists" claim, it would have already stopped turning on its axis!
Lord Kelvin (the 19th century physicist who introduced the Kelvin temperature scale) used this slowing rotation as a reason why the earth could not be very old. It is now known that the decline in the rotation rate is actually greater than previously thought by Kelvin (Thomas G. Barnes, "Physics: A Challenge to 'Geologic times'," Impact 16, July 1974).
Consider this: If we were to extrapolate backward from our present earth spin rate, 5 million years ago, the planet would have been spinning so fast it would have changed the shape from a round globe to a flat pancake and would not have been able to support any type of life! MAYBE THE WORLD WAS FLAT AT ONE TIME! The fact is, the gradual reduction of the spin rate is proof positive that the earth is only several thousand years old!
Magnetic Field Decay: As you probably know, the earth has a magnetic field. Without it, we could not use compasses to identify the direction of magnetic north which is close to the North Pole.
Dr. Thomas G. Barnes, a physics teacher at the University of Texas, has authored a widely used college textbook on electricity and magnetism. Working with data collected over the past 135 years, he has pointed out that the earth's magnetic field is gradually decaying. In fact, he has shown that this magnetic field is decreasing exponentially, according to a decay law similar to the decay of radioactive substances.
Since 1835 when German physicist K. F. Gauss made the first measurements of the earth's magnetic strength, global magnetism has decreased 14 percent!
On the basis of facts obtained from 1835 to 1965, this magnetic field appears to have a half-life of just 1,400 years. On this basis, even 20,000 years ago there would have been enough "Joule" heat to liquefy the entire earth! One million years ago the earth would have had greater magnetism than all objects in the universe and it would have vaporized!
From data gathered about the decreasing magnetism of planet earth it would appear that the earth could not be over 6,000 to 7,000 years old. What does that do the theory of evolution?
Earth's Topsoil: The average depth of topsoil throughout the world is approximately eight inches. Allowing for losses due to erosion, it has been calculated that it requires 300 to 1,000 years to build one inch of topsoil.
Consider this: If the world were even 1 million years old, there should be nearly 84 feet of top soil! That would be a farmers delight . . . but the fact is, the shallow topsoil points to an earth that is not over 10,000 years old.
Niagara Falls: The French explorer, Hennepin, first mapped Niagara Falls in 1678. From that time until 1842, the falls eroded the cliff beneath them at a rate of approximately 7 feet per year. More recent calculations would indicate that Niagara Falls is eroding backward about 3 1/2 feet per year.
The length of the Niagara Falls gorge is about 7 miles . . . this indicates that the falls have been eating away at the rock strata between 5,000 and 10,000 years.
River Deltas: Have you ever seen an air-view photograph of the Mississippi River Delta? You can find an outline of it on any larger map of the United States.
The river dumps some 300 million cubic yards of mud into the Gulf of Mexico every year. For this reason, the State of Louisiana keeps getting larger and larger every year! Yet, for the amount of sediment dumping that occurs, the Mississippi delta is not really all that large. In fact, calculations reveal that it has only been forming for the past 4,000 years. This would coincide with the time of the Biblical flood of Noah!
English evolutionist, Charles Lyell, once made a superficial examination of the river and its delta and declared the river system to be 60,000 years old since he said the delta was over 500 feet deep. Congress commissioned General Andrew A. Humphreys to make a survey of the delta area. He showed that the actual depth of the delta was only forty feet deep. Below that was the blue clay of the Gulf, and below that, marine fossils. General Humphreys calculated that the formation of the Mississippi delta would have taken about 4,620 years . . . dating back to the time of Noah's world-wide flood!
Growth of Ocean Coral: Coral in the ocean grows at a definite rate. Analysis of coral growth in the oceans reveals that our earth is much younger than most people think.
"Estimated old ages for the earth are frequently based on 'clocks' that today are ticking at very slow rates. For example, coral growth rates were for many years thought to be very slow, implying that some coral reefs must be hundreds of thousands of years old. More accurate measurements of these rates under favorable growth conditions now show us that no known coral formation need be older than 3,500 years! (A. A. Roth, 'Coral Reef Growth' Origins, Vol. 6, No. 2, 1979, pp. 88-95)."
Tree Rings : The giant sequoias of California have no known enemies except man. Only recently did man (with his saws) have the ability to easily destroy them. Insects do not bother them, nor even forest fires. Those gigantic redwood trees pointing toward Heaven live on, century after century!
Yet the sequoias are never older than about 4,000 years, coinciding with the end of the Biblical flood of Noah!
Evolutionary "scientists" continue to indoctrinate the public with the myth that the world slowly evolved over billions and billions of years. The Bible actually speaks of this false teaching which is so prevalent today: "Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the Word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, By which the world that then being overflowed with water perished. But the heavens and the earth which are now, by the same Word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perditions of ungodly men." 2 Peter 3:3-7
The Bible tells us that the "scoffers" will "walk after their own lusts." The real issue about the false teaching of evolution is simply this . . . immoral man will not make himself accountable to a holy God Who created all things. This passage even refers to the false teaching of UNIFORMITARIANISM that "all things continue as they were from the beginning . . . "
Let's take a closer look at the world around us . . . maybe we should return to the text book of life . . . it tells us that "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." Genesis 1:1

"Evolutionary scientists continue to
indoctrinate the public
with the myth that the
world slowly evolved over billions and billions of years. But the
world around us tells another story. This articles considers the
gradual slowing of earth's rotation, the gradual decreasing of earth's
magnetic field, the depth of the topsoil under our feet, the Niagara
Falls, the Mississippi River Delta, the growth of ocean coral reefs, and
the tree rings of the giant sequoias in California. They all tell
the story of an earth that could not be over 10,000 years old!
