… OK, I think we can arrange that …
This is YA crazy web site extolling the wonders of Young Earth creationism. Nothing new.
Which is why it is interesting. How can the following possibly still be part of the YEC rhetoric?
There are dating methods like Carbon 14 dating convincing many people that the earth is 4.5 billion years old. Carbon 14 dating assumes that the rate of change and decay has been relatively constant through time. This assumes the present is the key to the past. Creationists believe that Noah’s flood was a literal, cataclysmic world-wide event. The scale of this event would significantly change the level of carbon deposit, skewing carbon 14 dating results.
Carbon 14 has never, ever been used to date the earth. Carbon 14 dating assumes a constant rate of decay, which is the same physics that our Red White and Blue All American God Fearing Military Defense system uses when it makes those nuklar submarines and bombs and stuff. So saying that C 14 does not decay at a constant rate is unpatriotic. But, it does turn out that the amount of C14 in the atmosphere does indeed change over time. And this fact is considered when calculations related to radiocarbon dating are made.
Which, again, has nothing to do with the age of the earth. Those are OTHER dating techniques that are used to estimate the age of the earth. So, you you are a young earth creationist who happened to accidentally end up reading this blog post, I just want you to know that leaving out the other methods is lying by omission, so the whole C14 thing is a lie. And a lie is a sin. I’m afraid that Mr. Justin Bleuer is, in fact, a sinner.
Oh, and also, The holy scriptures are nothing like 100% accurate, if it changes every time it gets transcribed.
