Previous Questions and AnswersHow old is the earth?
The Earth is only 6000 years old? What about radioactive dating that goes back millions of years? And dinosaurs and humans lived side by side? What about 65 Million year old carbon dating? Also, was there a hell before Lucifer and his minions were cast into it? Thank you very much...
Carbon dating is not really understood by most people, and the evolutionists use it in a deceitful manner to try and back up their "millions and billions of years" theory.Consider just a portion of an article written by Dr. John Morris from the Creation Research Institute. "Perhaps no concept in science is as misunderstood as "carbon dating." Almost everyone thinks carbon dating speaks of millions or billions of years. But, carbon dating can't be used to date either rocks or fossils. It is only useful for once-living things which still contain carbon, like flesh or bone or wood. Rocks and fossils, consisting only of inorganic minerals, cannot be dated by this scheme. Carbon normally occurs as Carbon-12, but radioactive Carbon-14 may sometimes be formed in the outer atmosphere as Nitrogen-14 undergoes cosmic ray bombardment. The resulting C-14 is unstable and decays back to N-14 with a measured half-life of approximately 5,730 years. Thus the ratio of stable C-12 to unstable C-14, which is known in today's open environment, changes over time in an isolated specimen. Consider the dating of a piece of wood. As long as the tree lives, it absorbs carbon from the atmosphere in the form of carbon dioxide, both C-12 and C-14. Once the tree dies, it ceases to take in new carbon, and any C-14 present begins to decay. The changing ratio of C-12 to C-14 indicates the length of time since the tree stopped absorbing carbon, i.e., the time of its death. ...in practice, no one trusts it (carbon dating) beyond about 3,000 or 4,000 years, and then only if it can be checked by some historical means. ...Thus carbon dating says nothing at all about millions of years, and often lacks accuracy even with historical specimens..." (Doesn't Carbon Dating Prove the Earth Is Old? by John D.

Evolution is not a fact, but a system of belief, or rather a system of "disbelief" in what is true, and clear, and written by the only eyewitness of creation God. Some planets, moons, etc. are spinning in opposite directions. That could not be, if a "big bang" started it all. At the rate of the suns decay, the sun would have fried the earth those "millions and billions" of years ago, and the earth would be a freezer "millions and billions" of years down the road. NASA was afraid that the lunar landing module would sink way down into the dust on the moon when it landed (because they calculated how deep the dust there would be after "millions and billions" of years), but how they were surprised when it was only the depth of a footprint when those astronauts walked upon the surface (just the depth it should be after the dust of space settling on its surface for about 6,000 years the approximate date of the earth according to the Bible). The argument is not just about carbon dating, or radioactive dating, or dinosaur footprints beside those of man in Texas the real argument is about the existence of God, and the accuracy of the record that He left for us, the Bible. "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD." (Holy Bible, Psalm 14:1-4). Dr. Kent Hovind has for many years offered a $10,000 reward to anyone who can prove evolution. Guess what? No one ever took him up on it. Why? Because no one can prove it. It is false. He has now raised the reward to $250,000. You asked another question, "Also, was there a hell before Lucifer and his minions were cast into it?" The devil is not in hell right now. Hell was created for the devil and his angels. Matthew 25:41 says, "Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, PREPARED FOR THE DEVIL AND HIS ANGELS." The devil is free to roam right now. And guess what he is doing? He is out deceiving people right now to believe his lie. I Peter 5:6-8 says, "Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. BE SOBER, BE VIGILANT, BECAUSE YOUR ADVERSARY THE DEVIL, AS A ROARING LION, WALKETH ABOUT, SEEKING WHOM HE MAY DEVOUR." The devil will be cast into hell at a future date. Revelation 20:10-15 says, "And THE DEVIL THAT DECEIVED THEM WAS CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE AND BRIMSTONE, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. AND WHOSOEVER WAS NOT FOUND WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE WAS CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE." Notice that man who rejects God will be cast into the same place of torment as the devil. Do not believe the devils lie. Believe Gods Word that He created this earth and man upon it, and repent of your sin and receive Jesus Christ today as your Savior. II Peter 3:3-9 says, "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 the 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 the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, 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 perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. THE LORD IS not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, NOT WILLING THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH, BUT THAT ALL SHOULD COME TO REPENTANCE."
