6) Proven Or Pretend Time?

Traditional Christian views held that the world started with its Creation and would end with the second coming of Jesus. This concept did not give evolution enough time to producing anything. 6000 years was not enough time to create the incredible diversity of life in the world.

Charles Lyell (1797–1875) was a close friend of Charles Darwin. Lyell’s elite social and political connections within Britain’s Military Industrial Complex – like his friend Darwin – authorized him to underwrite a new “explanation of time” that due to its “eloquence…convinced a wide range of readers of the significance of “”Deep time.

As Darwin wrote in On the Origin of Species, “He who can read Sir Charles Lyell’s grand work…yet does not admit how incomprehensibly vast have been the past periods of time, may at once close this volume [On the Origin of Species].

Good advice. Lots of advances in understanding time have been made in the last 150 years.

The human mind has long grappled with the elusive nature of time: what it is, how to record it, how it regulates life, and whether it exists as a fundamental building block of the universe…

The French scientist Sadi Carnot proved…what came to be known as the second law of thermodynamics…entropy (the amount of disorder) must always increase. The fact that things get more disordered — but never the other way around — appears to lend a directionality to time…

Why does time appear to flow in just one direction? In The Nature of the Physical World, the British physicist Arthur Eddington…wrote:

If as we follow the arrow we find more and more of the random element in the state of the world, then the arrow [of time] is pointing towards the future; if the random element decreases the arrow points towards the past. That is the only distinction known to physics.”

If time = increased chaos, how can Evolution claim that eons of time increased the organization of first atoms, then molecules, then cells, then organisms, then plant and animals and finally the highly organized ecosystem we have today?

It can’t.


In 1988 The British physicist Stephen Hawking published A Brief History of TimeHawking identified three distinct “arrows of time”: a psychological arrow (underpinning our memories of the past and how we imagine the future), a thermodynamic arrow (the direction in which entropy [chaos] increases), and a cosmological arrow (the direction in which the size of the universe increases).

Again, how is it possible that the unscientific 19th century conception of evolution, which contradicts the most scientifically advanced  physicists’ determination of what happens over extended periods of time, remains a foundational premise of science?

in 1859, Charles Darwin, a deacon in the Church of England, published Origin of Species which…challenged conventional Christian belief in the literal truth of the biblical creation story.

Aha! Here we have it. Getting rid of God as an authority figure. Especially that part about being good.

Is there any evidence for a the the extended time required by evolution?

Radiometric Time Scale

The discovery of the natural radioactive decay of uranium in 1896 by Henry Becquerel, the French physicist, opened new vistas in science. In 1905, the British physicist Lord Rutherford–after defining the structure of the atom– made the first clear suggestion for using radioactivity as a tool for measuring geologic time directly…

The next 40 years was a period of expanding research on the nature and behavior of atoms, leading to the development of nuclear fission and fusion as energy sources. A byproduct of this atomic research has been the development and continuing refinement of the various methods and techniques used to measure the age of Earth materials…

radioactive-decay-290x300-1A chemical element consists of atoms with a specific number of protons in their nuclei but [can have] variations in the number of neutrons. Atoms of the same element with differing [number of neutrons] are called isotopes. Radioactive decay is a spontaneous process in which an isotope loses particles from its nucleus [to form a daughter isotope]…Some isotopes…decay slowly, and several of these are used as geologic clocks. 

Dating rocks by these radioactive timekeepers is simple in theory, but the laboratory procedures are complex. The numbers of parent and daughter isotopes in each specimen are determined by various kinds of analytical methods. The principal difficulty lies in measuring precisely very small amounts of isotopes…

only certain types of rocks, chiefly the igneous variety, can be dated directly by radiometric methods…Igneous rocks are those…which crystallize from…[volcanic] magma…

sedimentary rocks such as sandstone, limestone, and shale are related to the radiometric time scale by bracketing them within time zones that are determined by dating appropriately selected igneous rocks, as shown by a hypothetical example.

Diagram showing dating of selected igneous rockssedimentary rocks such as sandstone, limestone, and shale are related to the radiometric time scale by bracketing them within time zones that are determined by dating appropriately selected igneous rocks, as shown by a hypothetical example.

The age of the volcanic ash bed and the igneous dike are determined directly by radiometric methods. The layers of sedimentary rocks below the ash bed are obviously older than the ash, and all the layers above the ash are younger…

Many points on the time scale are being revised, however, as the behavior of isotopes in the Earth’s crust is more clearly understood. Thus the graphic illustration of the geologic time scale, showing both relative time and radiometric time, represents only the present state of knowledge. Certainly, revisions and modifications will be forthcoming as research continues to improve our knowledge of Earth history.

The fact is that Evolutionists arbitrarily assign long dates to geological layers based on a priori assumption that evolution occurred.

Geologists use fossils to determine the age of the rock layer that it was found in. We know that if a fossil once lived on Earth 260 million years ago, the layer that it was fossilized in must be at least 260 million years old. Geologists can then determine that layers around the world that contain that same fossil must be 260 million years old.

The first life appeared about 3.2 billion years ago in the form of algae, a simple single celled plant. Scientists know that life on Earth has changed over time and that the life has become increasingly more complex. Scientists also know that these changes didn’t occur over night, sometimes it took millions of years for these plants and animals to evolve.


We knowScientists know that.. it took millions of years for these plants and animals to evolve.” How do they know?

The fossils of giant, extinct marine reptiles have been found in an unlikely place: within the high altitudes of the Swiss Alps…

The ancient creatures could reach 80 tons and 65 feet (20 meters) in length, rivaling modern sperm whales.

So how did the remains of massive sea creatures…end up at an altitude of 9,186 feet (2,800 meters)?..

the folding of the Alps…when the African tectonic plate began to push up against the European tectonic plate, created piles of rock layers…pushed them to a rock formation at the top of a mountain.

Just how much do fossils to support evolution’s claims?

Fossils are rare since the conditions have to be right for them to form. 

The fossil record is clearly incomplete, and it is clearly biased by many factors

So, is the fossil record more like 1 or 50 percent of reality? Benton doesn’t know. And his new paper suggests no else does either.

This lack of discovery should have eliminated evolution as a scientific consideration.

Currently, academia and science are clinging to uniformitarianism and biological macroevolution with all the strength they can muster. However…the last 50 years an enormous amount of information has been collected that supports catastrophism and intelligent design.

The Mount St. Helens eruption and subsequent erosion has taught us that rapid deposition and rapid canyon erosion is a fact. It doesn’t take years to form. It doesn’t take rocket science to know that life forms cannot be fossilized unless buried rapidly…

Many in science and academia have a deeply held religious belief in uniformitarianism and evolution in spite of all the evidence pointing in the opposite direction…their original theories were based upon religious political motivations…Julian Huxley, grandson of Thomas Huxley “Darwin’s bulldog,” first director of UNESCO and prominent evolutionist was asked on a public radio station…why evolution was accepted so rapidly. He didn’t say anything relating to scientific evidence. He said the reason it became so popular was because it didn’t interfere with our sexual mores.

Consequently, the evidence definitely leads to the fact that the new paradigm shift from a solid belief in the Bible, the biblical flood and a young earth to skepticism in the Bible, rejection of the biblical flood of Noah and an old earth occurred as a result of using the banner of science to promote a religious belief rather than being based upon scientific evidence.

By the end of the nineteenth century, the findings of Darwin and the Higher Critics had been embraced by…influential figures in the media, universities and seminaries. The largely upper-class and urban people who accepted the new learning became known as modernists or liberals

a movement began that opposed modernism vehemently and affirmed the literal truth of the Bible. Building on a long tradition of anti-intellectualism on the American frontier, these Christians would come to be known as fundamentalists.

Fundamentalists are by nature hard to convince. So rather than throwing God out altogether, a plan was hatched to adapt his version of reality. If you can’t beat em, join em.

Mr. Bertrand Comparet:

Many people have become agnostics because of the supposed conflict between the Bible and science.  In truth, there is no conflict at all between a correct translation of the Bible and really proven science

science knows human beings have lived on the earth far longer than the few thousand years covered by the Bible…

Note – this assumes that evolution is a “really proven science” which it is not.

the truth is that the Bible nowhere says that Adam was the first man…— it merely says that Adam was the first man of a new [creation] or the White race.

Note the failure to provide the biblical reference for this statement.

In Genesis 3, verse 3, when Eve tells Satan that God has said that they must not touch the fruit of the Tree of Good and Evil, the word there translated “touch” [in the King James Bible] is the Hebrew word “ִתְגּעוּ th gou” meaning “to lie with, to have sexual intercourse with,” which plainly shows that…there were other people in the world at that time.

How does Mr. Comparet’s make up his variant translation?

Apparently he just does. And people who don’t investigate the claims being made blindly grasp, like Eve, at whatever appeals to them.

Obviously, the trees in the garden of the Lord in Eden were family trees of races and nations.

So the law against the “forbidden fruit” was a law against mis-cege-nation, having sexual relations with other races,

it was Adam’s job to rule the various nations and races of the earth as God’s representative here, educating them in God’s laws and enforcing obedience to those laws.  These other races and nations had been here many thousands of years before Adam. 

As detailed in a later post, evolution dehumanizes categories of people. Inserting evolution into the Bible allows Christians to claim a biblical means of salvation from hell while simultaneously rejecting unpalatable equality, justice, and righteous behavior towards rivals and allowing massive exploitation and murder of third world nations. and allows the elite tyrants to exploit and murder with impunity.

The massive lengths of time required by evolution are also inserted into the Bible via the Gap Theory.

The Gap Theory states that God – however you care to define him – “created” or in some way “caused to be” a formless, void, and dark earth, like a black hole, then exploded it, therby allows Christians to apparently reconcile the Bible with the belief of evolution that the Earth is billions of years old.

So fundamentalist biblical opponents of the Gap Theory fiercely oppose evolution and defend creationism by insisting that everything in Genesis 1 occurred in seven 24-hour days.

Let’s be true scientists and examine all claims objectively.

The Creator described in the Bible no more needs 24 hours than he needs billions of years to create either the old or the new creation. We cannot judge the circumstances of infinity creation week by current conditions. 

“the King eternal, immortal” (I Timothy 1:17)

Eternity is not longer time. It is the opposite of time. It is time-less-ness.

“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.” (II Peter 3:8)

Eternity is a hyper dimension that can’t be understood by those who haven’t transformed from mortal to immortal any more than colors can be described to someone who is colorblind or music to someone who has been deaf from birth.

“in the twinkling of an eye…the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” (I Corinthians 15:52)

“…eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world / chronos / times began / aionios / a very long time ago.” (Titus 1:2)

This verse is an example of both the benefits and the confusion that comes from having different translations of the Bible. In this instance, the different translations of the phrase chronos aionios should help clarify the meaning – “the beginning of time, the world began, ages began.”  The common denominator to the different translations is that the Bible states there was a beginning to time, and this is corroborated by science.

Physicists agree that time had a beginning.”

While physical time is defined by deterioration, such as the decay of radioactive isotopes, historic time is defined by assigning a starting point and measuring standardized intervals between events. National histories are typically dated by the reigns of their kings. At the beginning of one historical novel set in Britain’s dark ages, the fictional narrator dates his story from three perspectives –

  1. for the Celts, when the Roman oppressors left Britain and they regained their freedom;
  2. for the Saxons, when they drove the Celts out of the choicest land;
  3. for the Christian converts, when their Lord Jesus Christ was born.

the Bible does not document a geological earth calendar based on measurements of events like radioactive decay. What is documented is the doleful tolling of the deaths of men.

And all the days that Adam lived were 930 years: and he died….And all the days of Seth were 912 years: and he died…” (Genesis 5:3-8)

This did not occur until the 7th day of creation, when the Adams’ violated a law.

  • “by one (hu)man sin entered into the world,
    • and death by sin;
  • and so [the physical condition of] death passed upon all (hu)men [who share the prototype human’s DNA],

This timekeeping is consistent with the theme of the Bible being the history of humanity – not the physical universe which is simply the setting for humanity. Human time had a beginning – when death began – and an end – when death is destroyed.

“And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: But…the mystery of God should be finished.(Revelation 10:5-7, 11:15)

So when…this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass…Death is swallowed up in victory.” (I Corinthians 15:53-54)

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea…and there shall be no more death...” (Revelation 21:1-4)

Studying the Bible is not just a matter of cultural-religious identity, or living right, or solving problems. It is a matter of resurrection from the dead to eternal life.

Studying the Bible is not just a matter of cultural-religious identity, or living right, or solving problems. It is a matter of eternal life under the control of the giver of life, or eternal life-less existence in a state of zombified death with the cruel Lord of the Flies.
