@RYAN_SCHROCK, let’s talk about the Bible. First off, the Bible’s is even older that 600 AD, the first book of the Bible was written 3,400 years ago, the last book of the Bible was finished in around the year of our Lord (AD) or CE (if you prefer that) 80. It was then compiled by the early church fathers who underwent a painstaking process to make sure that every book was inspired by God Himself. This completed Bible was then copied by hand, the method for coping was to write each letter one at a time and if they made a single mistake they would start all over again. In 1946 the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in Israel, they were copies of several of the books of the Old Testament written before the time of Christ by a group of Jews who had withdrawn to the wilderness because of the Romans. Included in the writings was a copy of the book Isaiah and when compared to a modern copy of the same book there were two words different, both the differences were just spelling. Two words different in 2,000 years is amazing. The Bible has been copied more accurately over time than Aristotle’s work.
Now let’s talk evolution again:
Charles Darwin’s finches
Darwin, upon visiting several locations around the world, noticed that these different types of finches, the 1. Large Ground Finch, 2. Medium Ground Finch 3. Small Tree Finch, 4. Green-warbler Finch, and declared that these finches had evolved over time. This however is in no way true, this is called adaptation, an animal or human will over generations change slightly to better aid themselves in their environment in the same way Eskimos have larger hearts to keep them warmer. These animals or humans are not however changing into new types of animal. You don’t see the Finch becoming a mammal or a reptile becoming a bird which science has always failed to prove.
Radiocarbon dating is based on the belief that radiocarbon in organic things is being released at a constant rate all the time. Most evolutionary dates given to rock layers and fossils are derived using this method.
There are a few problems though:
1. How do those dating the material know how much radiocarbon was in the material to begin with.
2. How do they know how fast that it has been leaking from the substance.
3. How do they know if the object hasn’t been infused with radiocarbon or put into a position where it can’t emit normal amounts of radiocarbon.
As you can see radiocarbon dating is very faulty.
When Mt. Saint Helens erupted on May 18, 1980 it layed down several new layers of sediment, the scientists in the area then sent samples of these new layers to the lab and they were dated the layers as being 65,000 years old!
