00:00:31.100 –> 00:00:36.410
welcome to creation ministry I’m your

00:00:36.410 –> 00:00:39.260
host Dr. Troy Lawrence the purpose of

00:00:39.260 –> 00:00:41.330
our shows to discuss the science that

00:00:41.330 –> 00:00:43.400
supports the Genesis creation account

00:00:43.400 –> 00:00:46.040


and global flood is it that the Bible is

00:00:46.040 –> 00:00:48.620
wrong and we have to capitulate the

00:00:48.620 –> 00:00:51.080
Bible and succumb it to the whims and

00:00:51.080 –> 00:00:54.379
philosophies of mankind is it that life

00:00:54.379 –> 00:00:58.340
came from nothing is it that we evolved

00:00:58.340 –> 00:01:00.379
from molecules from a common ancestor

00:01:00.379 –> 00:01:03.559
become man and we have to undermined

00:01:03.559 –> 00:01:06.560
what the scripture says now there is

00:01:06.560 –> 00:01:08.240
science that supports the plain reading

00:01:08.240 –> 00:01:10.190
of the Genesis creation account and

00:01:10.190 –> 00:01:12.020
that’s what this ministry is all about

00:01:12.020 –> 00:01:14.630
to equip you to remove the stumbling

00:01:14.630 –> 00:01:18.170
blocks built up by man that is used to

00:01:18.170 –> 00:01:21.110
get us away from the Bible to get us

00:01:21.110 –> 00:01:22.850
back into the Bible we’re going to use

00:01:22.850 –> 00:01:24.680
science knowledge

00:01:24.680 –> 00:01:27.229
the Bible doesn’t tell us to appeal to

00:01:27.229 –> 00:01:29.960
someone’s feelings and emotions to get

00:01:29.960 –> 00:01:33.140
them to accept Jesus as Christ Lord and

00:01:33.140 –> 00:01:36.140
Savior no it tells us to reason it

00:01:36.140 –> 00:01:40.430
tells us to ask seek knock to use logic

00:01:40.430 –> 00:01:42.950
to test and so that’s the purpose of

00:01:42.950 –> 00:01:45.979
this creation ministry to remove

00:01:45.979 –> 00:01:48.829
stumbling blocks built up by man’s

00:01:48.829 –> 00:01:52.219
ideology man’s paradigms that keep us

00:01:52.219 –> 00:01:54.079
away from the Genesis creation account

00:01:54.079 –> 00:01:57.140
global flood always before you get into

00:01:57.140 –> 00:01:59.090
the Word of God you should open in a

00:01:59.090 –> 00:02:01.039
word of prayer and that’s what we’re

00:02:01.039 –> 00:02:04.189
going to do Father guide our program may

00:02:04.189 –> 00:02:06.979
you be glorified the heavens declare

00:02:06.979 –> 00:02:08.990
your majesty

00:02:08.990 –> 00:02:11.360
night after night and day after day and

00:02:11.360 –> 00:02:14.060
let us grow in knowledge of you through

00:02:14.060 –> 00:02:15.950
science and Jesus holding precious name

00:02:15.950 –> 00:02:17.090
Amen

00:02:17.090 –> 00:02:19.910
last week we discussed the dinosaurs was

00:02:19.910 –> 00:02:22.070
it that they are extinct or is it that

00:02:22.070 –> 00:02:23.570
they had to adapt to environmental

00:02:23.570 –> 00:02:26.150
conditions and are still living amongst

00:02:26.150 –> 00:02:29.090
us though too small to be seen as

00:02:29.090 –> 00:02:31.670
epically large dinosaurs we discussed

00:02:31.670 –> 00:02:35.000
that dinosaurs are reptiles and

00:02:35.000 –> 00:02:36.860
reptiles will grow as long as they’re

00:02:36.860 –> 00:02:37.610
alive

00:02:37.610 –> 00:02:39.920
so imagine reptiles living in the days

00:02:39.920 –> 00:02:42.860
prior to Noah that once lived 800 plus

00:02:42.860 –> 00:02:43.660
years have all

00:02:43.660 –> 00:02:46.240
that time to grow and increase in size

00:02:46.240 –> 00:02:48.550
and today they’re only living 20 years

00:02:48.550 –> 00:02:50.140
so therefore they don’t have the

00:02:50.140 –> 00:02:52.930
opportunity to live as long and

00:02:52.930 –> 00:02:55.090
therefore grow with each day

00:02:55.090 –> 00:02:58.660
Genesis 6 19 tells us directly that two

00:02:58.660 –> 00:03:01.240
of every kind went on the ark so that

00:03:01.240 –> 00:03:03.550
that God we keep them alive that

00:03:03.550 –> 00:03:05.800
includes dinosaurs logistically we

00:03:05.800 –> 00:03:08.110
explain that would mean that Noah

00:03:08.110 –> 00:03:09.670
didn’t have to take the epically

00:03:09.670 –> 00:03:12.490
full-grown adults just young links

00:03:12.490 –> 00:03:14.890
something small and then you have in

00:03:14.890 –> 00:03:20.500
Job 40 where God tells job to behold to

00:03:20.500 –> 00:03:23.860
look at two dinosaurs one called the

00:03:23.860 –> 00:03:25.960
behemoth and one called the Leviathan

00:03:25.960 –> 00:03:29.470
it’s a moot point for God to tell Job to

00:03:29.470 –> 00:03:31.660
look at something that had been extinct

00:03:31.660 –> 00:03:34.510
65 million years ago and then we talked

00:03:34.510 –> 00:03:36.610
about environmental conditions that

00:03:36.610 –> 00:03:39.850
oxygen trapped in amber and trapped in

00:03:39.850 –> 00:03:42.430
the glacier core samples reveals that

00:03:42.430 –> 00:03:44.890
oxygen was fifty percent higher in the

00:03:44.890 –> 00:03:48.070
past and we discovered by talking about

00:03:48.070 –> 00:03:51.160
science that oxygen oxygen causes life

00:03:51.160 –> 00:03:53.920
to thrive and we discussed that there

00:03:53.920 –> 00:03:57.459
were sciences that grew insects in hyper

00:03:57.459 –> 00:04:00.070
oxygen states and those insects doubled

00:04:00.070 –> 00:04:03.850
in size also we discussed that there

00:04:03.850 –> 00:04:07.030
were soft tissue in fossils soft-tissue

00:04:07.030 –> 00:04:09.640
they cannot survive if the creature is

00:04:09.640 –> 00:04:11.830
allegedly extinct 65 million years ago

00:04:11.830 –> 00:04:14.200
and we discussed that there are

00:04:14.200 –> 00:04:16.810
footprints of mankind on the same strata

00:04:16.810 –> 00:04:19.359
as dinosaurs when you put all these

00:04:19.359 –> 00:04:21.400
things together you’ll see that the

00:04:21.400 –> 00:04:25.060
Bible is truth that dinosaurs walked

00:04:25.060 –> 00:04:27.160
with mankind and it is not that

00:04:27.160 –> 00:04:29.890
dinosaurs are extinct and have been

00:04:29.890 –> 00:04:32.260
extinct for 65 million years ago

00:04:32.260 –> 00:04:34.270
it’s just that dinosaurs are reptiles

00:04:34.270 –> 00:04:36.820
and they had to adapt to environmental

00:04:36.820 –> 00:04:41.169
conditions just like mankind today so

00:04:41.169 –> 00:04:43.180
it’s not that dinosaurs are extinct ok

00:04:43.180 –> 00:04:46.780
now to our next point we need just to

00:04:46.780 –> 00:04:49.120
discuss another stumbling block that’s

00:04:49.120 –> 00:04:51.640
hindering mankind from reading the

00:04:51.640 –> 00:04:54.400
scriptures as plain text and that it is

00:04:54.400 –> 00:04:56.729
divine and that is carbon 14

00:04:56.729 –> 00:04:58.860
dating you hear often when people

00:04:58.860 –> 00:05:01.349
discuss and they say the Bible is wrong

00:05:01.349 –> 00:05:05.669
because carbon 14 dating proves that x

00:05:05.669 –> 00:05:09.960
y&z is at a minimum 50,000 years old so

00:05:09.960 –> 00:05:12.870
we need to equip our hearing our hearers

00:05:12.870 –> 00:05:14.819
are listening audience how does

00:05:14.819 –> 00:05:17.849
carbon-14 actually work and does it

00:05:17.849 –> 00:05:21.210
refute the Bible or does it really tell

00:05:21.210 –> 00:05:23.430
us that the earth is very old because

00:05:23.430 –> 00:05:25.319
the creatures that they’re testing or at

00:05:25.319 –> 00:05:27.900
a minimum 50,000 years old and here’s

00:05:27.900 –> 00:05:28.800
how it works

00:05:28.800 –> 00:05:32.039
cosmic radiation that comes from the

00:05:32.039 –> 00:05:34.259
cosmos comes in contact with our

00:05:34.259 –> 00:05:37.169
atmosphere and converts nitrogen in our

00:05:37.169 –> 00:05:39.930
atmosphere to radioactive unstable

00:05:39.930 –> 00:05:43.349
carbon-14 the plants absorb this in the

00:05:43.349 –> 00:05:45.419
the living creatures breathe in the air

00:05:45.419 –> 00:05:48.149
and get a one-to-one ratio of the

00:05:48.149 –> 00:05:51.120
radioactive carbon 14 we eat the plants

00:05:51.120 –> 00:05:54.180
and also get a one-to-one ratio of

00:05:54.180 –> 00:05:56.550
the radioactive carbon 14 concentration

00:05:56.550 –> 00:05:59.219
in the atmosphere and then when the

00:05:59.219 –> 00:06:01.409
creature dies then it’s no longer

00:06:01.409 –> 00:06:04.379
absorbing carbon 14 so therefore

00:06:04.379 –> 00:06:08.009
carbon-14 decays and and it winds down

00:06:08.009 –> 00:06:11.430
to trace amounts of it can’t be decayed

00:06:11.430 –> 00:06:13.979
any further and we know that decay rate

00:06:13.979 –> 00:06:17.430
every 5730 years

00:06:17.430 –> 00:06:20.310
carbon-14 is cut in half that’s not the

00:06:20.310 –> 00:06:21.149
problem

00:06:21.149 –> 00:06:23.219
so if we could just quantify it and put

00:06:23.219 –> 00:06:26.490
fictitious numbers if you have 10 carbon

00:06:26.490 –> 00:06:29.849
14 elements in your body and then every

00:06:29.849 –> 00:06:33.209
5730 years it will get cut half so then

00:06:33.209 –> 00:06:35.009
you’ll be down to five and you be down

00:06:35.009 –> 00:06:38.189
to 2.5 and then down to 1.25

00:06:38.189 –> 00:06:39.779
so it gets cut half-and-half and when it

00:06:39.779 –> 00:06:42.209
cannot be reducible any further than it

00:06:42.209 –> 00:06:44.610
that’s the estimate around 50,000 years

00:06:44.610 –> 00:06:46.740
so here’s the problem

00:06:46.740 –> 00:06:50.309
the cosmos is increasing the

00:06:50.309 –> 00:06:53.309
concentration of carbon 14 in the

00:06:53.309 –> 00:06:55.770
atmosphere and the amount produced each

00:06:55.770 –> 00:06:59.819
year is around 20 pounds of carbon 14 so

00:06:59.819 –> 00:07:02.759
as you go back in time the concentration

00:07:02.759 –> 00:07:05.490
in the atmosphere gets less and less and

00:07:05.490 –> 00:07:08.430
less and what we know we learn this and

00:07:08.430 –> 00:07:10.120
science has taught us

00:07:10.120 –> 00:07:13.630
that water buffers the amount of cosmic

00:07:13.630 –> 00:07:16.600
energy that comes in contact and

00:07:16.600 –> 00:07:19.750
converts nitrogen to carbon-14 NASA has

00:07:19.750 –> 00:07:22.389
discovered this so NASA is planning when

00:07:22.389 –> 00:07:25.240
they do long space travel the astronauts

00:07:25.240 –> 00:07:26.979
the water that they’re going to use for

00:07:26.979 –> 00:07:28.810
the astronauts is no longer than going

00:07:28.810 –> 00:07:31.419
to be contained inside the hull but

00:07:31.419 –> 00:07:33.460
it’ll be around the perimeter of the

00:07:33.460 –> 00:07:36.220
hull why they want to protect the

00:07:36.220 –> 00:07:38.830
astronauts from the harmful cosmic

00:07:38.830 –> 00:07:41.229
radiation this is the same harmful

00:07:41.229 –> 00:07:43.750
cosmic radiation that converts nitrogen

00:07:43.750 –> 00:07:45.789
to radioactive carbon 14 dating

00:07:45.789 –> 00:07:47.889
why is this important and we’ve all seen

00:07:47.889 –> 00:07:49.990
this by the way everyone of us has spent

00:07:49.990 –> 00:07:53.199
enough time in the pool or in the ocean

00:07:53.199 –> 00:07:56.169
and have discovered that ultraviolet

00:07:56.169 –> 00:07:58.060
light coming through the water doesn’t

00:07:58.060 –> 00:08:01.030
penetrate to the same depth and our toes

00:08:01.030 –> 00:08:02.680
and our lower extremities are get less

00:08:02.680 –> 00:08:05.710
tan then portions of our body that’s

00:08:05.710 –> 00:08:07.449
closer to the surface of the water

00:08:07.449 –> 00:08:11.199
why is that water buffers filters limits

00:08:11.199 –> 00:08:13.419
the amount of harmful cosmic radiation

00:08:13.419 –> 00:08:17.470
from penetrating how does this relate to

00:08:17.470 –> 00:08:20.380
the Bible well the Bible tells us in

00:08:20.380 –> 00:08:23.020
2 Peter 3:5 that the earth was made

00:08:23.020 –> 00:08:26.349
from water and through water and in

00:08:26.349 –> 00:08:30.610
Genesis 1 verse 2 we see the deep is

00:08:30.610 –> 00:08:33.370
ubiquitous in the universe and that’s

00:08:33.370 –> 00:08:35.169
what cosmologists and and

00:08:35.169 –> 00:08:37.300
astrophysicists teaches that water was

00:08:37.300 –> 00:08:39.610
once everywhere throughout the cosmos

00:08:39.610 –> 00:08:41.860
so what you have to imagine is at the

00:08:41.860 –> 00:08:44.740
time that the earth was forming it was

00:08:44.740 –> 00:08:48.640
surrounded by water and it was a densely

00:08:48.640 –> 00:08:50.529
packed universe on the first day of

00:08:50.529 –> 00:08:53.529
creation because the expanse God didn’t

00:08:53.529 –> 00:08:55.720
expand the universe until the second day

00:08:55.720 –> 00:08:57.850
and what we learned there’s a process in

00:08:57.850 –> 00:09:00.220
physics called cavitation and what

00:09:00.220 –> 00:09:03.940
cavitation is is when a water or fluid

00:09:03.940 –> 00:09:06.370
is under high pressure the air will be

00:09:06.370 –> 00:09:08.500
trapped in solution it will be trapped

00:09:08.500 –> 00:09:10.930
in water and then when there’s a sudden

00:09:10.930 –> 00:09:13.150
reduction of pressure on the fluid on

00:09:13.150 –> 00:09:15.700
the water then air that was once trapped

00:09:15.700 –> 00:09:18.730
in solution comes out as gas as air

00:09:18.730 –> 00:09:21.160
you see this every time you open a

00:09:21.160 –> 00:09:23.470
brand-new pressurized soda bottle

00:09:23.470 –> 00:09:27.280
you see the airs bubbling out you see

00:09:27.280 –> 00:09:29.740
that cavitation process and there’s that

00:09:29.740 –> 00:09:32.410
this is also a scene in scuba divers

00:09:32.410 –> 00:09:35.410
when a scuba diver spends too much time

00:09:35.410 –> 00:09:37.750
on in the deep and if they come up too

00:09:37.750 –> 00:09:40.150
fast they’ll get a process called the

00:09:40.150 –> 00:09:42.520
bends and that’s exactly what it is it’s

00:09:42.520 –> 00:09:45.970
cavitation where the blood boils air

00:09:45.970 –> 00:09:47.800
trapped in solution comes out and the

00:09:47.800 –> 00:09:50.050
blood boils not from heat

00:09:50.050 –> 00:09:52.180
no it’s from a sudden reduction of

00:09:52.180 –> 00:09:55.450
pressure so using science and the

00:09:55.450 –> 00:09:57.850
process of cavitation on the second day

00:09:57.850 –> 00:10:00.580
of creation when God expanded the

00:10:00.580 –> 00:10:03.670
tightly packed universe that water that

00:10:03.670 –> 00:10:06.190
was surrounding the earth as its spoken

00:10:06.190 –> 00:10:10.270
in 2nd Peter chapter 3 verse 5 that

00:10:10.270 –> 00:10:11.650
water went through a process of

00:10:11.650 –> 00:10:14.110
cavitation because the sudden reduction

00:10:14.110 –> 00:10:16.900
of pressure from the universe was no

00:10:16.900 –> 00:10:20.410
longer pressurizing of that water no

00:10:20.410 –> 00:10:24.130
longer forcing the air trapped in

00:10:24.130 –> 00:10:26.050
solution to remain in solution so with

00:10:26.050 –> 00:10:27.910
the universe expanding on the second day

00:10:27.910 –> 00:10:30.340
and god said let there be an expanse

00:10:30.340 –> 00:10:32.890
then through the process of cavitation

00:10:32.890 –> 00:10:35.680
God separated the waters from the waters

00:10:35.680 –> 00:10:38.920
and that’s how he formed our atmosphere

00:10:38.920 –> 00:10:41.410
with the formation of the atmosphere you

00:10:41.410 –> 00:10:45.430
have water below the atmosphere that’s

00:10:45.430 –> 00:10:49.150
the Seas lakes rivers and you have water

00:10:49.150 –> 00:10:52.390
above the atmosphere now since the

00:10:52.390 –> 00:10:54.790
universe’s expanded and there’s no

00:10:54.790 –> 00:10:57.310
longer the immense amount of pressure in

00:10:57.310 –> 00:11:00.820
nearby warmth of a forming Sun then that

00:11:00.820 –> 00:11:04.330
water would freeze in place that canopy

00:11:04.330 –> 00:11:07.240
water would filter the amount of cosmic

00:11:07.240 –> 00:11:09.730
harmful radiation from coming in contact

00:11:09.730 –> 00:11:12.790
with the atmosphere and converting

00:11:12.790 –> 00:11:17.800
nitrogen to carbon 14 so therein lies

00:11:17.800 –> 00:11:21.640
the solution it’s not that creatures

00:11:21.640 –> 00:11:24.190
when they died that they went through a

00:11:24.190 –> 00:11:26.950
slow decay process and every one of them

00:11:26.950 –> 00:11:30.130
decayed over 50,000 years and and they

00:11:30.130 –> 00:11:31.840
can tell the age of the earth by that no

00:11:31.840 –> 00:11:36.470
no the canopy limited the amount of

00:11:36.470 –> 00:11:38.930
nitrogen being converted to carbon 14 so

00:11:38.930 –> 00:11:41.510
those creatures that died after adam

00:11:41.510 –> 00:11:44.300
sinned towards the flood they would have

00:11:44.300 –> 00:11:47.720
died with trace amounts of radioactive

00:11:47.720 –> 00:11:52.010
carbon 14 it’s not that they slowly

00:11:52.010 –> 00:11:55.190
decayed and that’s that that’s where of

00:11:55.190 –> 00:11:58.040
carbon-14 draws its problem so when an

00:11:58.040 –> 00:12:00.440
evolutionist when someone who doesn’t

00:12:00.440 –> 00:12:02.300
want to go by the plain reading of the

00:12:02.300 –> 00:12:04.310
Genesis creation account and global

00:12:04.310 –> 00:12:08.030
flood when they say carbon-14 we we

00:12:08.030 –> 00:12:10.820
assume in and take a leap of faith that

00:12:10.820 –> 00:12:13.910
the concentration of carbon 14 in the

00:12:13.910 –> 00:12:17.240
dead creature in the ancient times was a

00:12:17.240 –> 00:12:20.690
full complement equal to what’s today’s

00:12:20.690 –> 00:12:22.520
concentration that’s a leap of faith

00:12:22.520 –> 00:12:25.370
there’s no way to prove the amount of

00:12:25.370 –> 00:12:28.430
radioactive carbon 14 at the start in

00:12:28.430 –> 00:12:30.530
that decedent and that dead creature

00:12:30.530 –> 00:12:33.680
when it first fell to the ground so

00:12:33.680 –> 00:12:36.260
using science and in harmony with

00:12:36.260 –> 00:12:38.870
Scripture we can see that carbon 14

00:12:38.870 –> 00:12:41.390
dating is flawed and for that primary

00:12:41.390 –> 00:12:45.170
reason that the canopy water limited the

00:12:45.170 –> 00:12:47.810
amount of harmful cosmic radiation from

00:12:47.810 –> 00:12:49.610
coming in contact with the atmosphere

00:12:49.610 –> 00:12:53.990
and converting nitrogen to carbon 14 so

00:12:53.990 –> 00:12:56.060
when an evolutionist or when someone

00:12:56.060 –> 00:12:59.390
tells you that we know the Bible is

00:12:59.390 –> 00:13:01.790
wrong because we can carbon-date a

00:13:01.790 –> 00:13:04.970
certain creature and it comes out to a

00:13:04.970 –> 00:13:07.100
minimum of fifty thousand years because

00:13:07.100 –> 00:13:10.220
there’s trace carbon-14 that creature

00:13:10.220 –> 00:13:13.760
you can know from from science that

00:13:13.760 –> 00:13:15.920
there they they’re taking a leap of

00:13:15.920 –> 00:13:18.770
faith they are leaping and faith that at

00:13:18.770 –> 00:13:21.020
the time when that creature first died

00:13:21.020 –> 00:13:23.690
that it died with a full complement of

00:13:23.690 –> 00:13:25.640
carbon-14 there’s no way of knowing that

00:13:25.640 –> 00:13:27.590
that’s a leap of faith and that’s where

00:13:27.590 –> 00:13:30.860
the paradigm of someone who views man’s

00:13:30.860 –> 00:13:32.810
philosophy as truth and the Bible is

00:13:32.810 –> 00:13:34.970
wrong and then they try and force the

00:13:34.970 –> 00:13:37.580
Bible into their philosophy into their

00:13:37.580 –> 00:13:39.740
paradigm then that’s where the problem

00:13:39.740 –> 00:13:42.950
goes awry and that’s exactly what we

00:13:42.950 –> 00:13:48.940
find in Scripture in 2nd Timothy 4

00:13:48.940 –> 00:13:53.380
in second Timothy chapter 4 we learned

00:13:53.380 –> 00:13:55.780
that in the end times man will turn away

00:13:55.780 –> 00:13:59.110
from the truth and and accumulate

00:13:59.110 –> 00:14:01.630
teachers that will tickle their ears and

00:14:01.630 –> 00:14:03.550
they’ll turn away from the truth and

00:14:03.550 –> 00:14:06.790
turn towards a myth one of the myth as

00:14:06.790 –> 00:14:10.510
we know from scriptures that a universal

00:14:10.510 –> 00:14:12.520
salvation that you can have any way of

00:14:12.520 –> 00:14:15.940
getting to heaven through any means just

00:14:15.940 –> 00:14:17.890
obeying or moral conscience but

00:14:17.890 –> 00:14:19.690
scripture directly says that there is

00:14:19.690 –> 00:14:22.210
only one way there is only one truth and

00:14:22.210 –> 00:14:23.230
one life and that is through Jesus

00:14:23.230 –> 00:14:26.020
Christ no one comes to the Father but

00:14:26.020 –> 00:14:29.770
through the Son and that has been the

00:14:29.770 –> 00:14:32.200
same theme from Genesis to Revelation

00:14:32.200 –> 00:14:35.410
but for this discussion for science the

00:14:35.410 –> 00:14:37.630
stumbling block that mankind has built

00:14:37.630 –> 00:14:40.600
up and i would contend through doctrines

00:14:40.600 –> 00:14:43.150
of demons is that mankind has built up

00:14:43.150 –> 00:14:45.520
an accumulated teachers teaching that

00:14:45.520 –> 00:14:48.220
the Bible is wrong and that mankind

00:14:48.220 –> 00:14:51.940
evolved from molecules to man and what

00:14:51.940 –> 00:14:53.650
they’ll do is they’ll lay the foundation

00:14:53.650 –> 00:14:57.790
of time great vast amounts of time and

00:14:57.790 –> 00:14:59.200
one of the elements that they put a

00:14:59.200 –> 00:15:02.470
stumbling block is carbon 14 dating by

00:15:02.470 –> 00:15:05.530
set by establishing an Old Earth using

00:15:05.530 –> 00:15:09.160
radioactive carbon 14 dating then that’s

00:15:09.160 –> 00:15:12.400
one of the stumbling blocks used so

00:15:12.400 –> 00:15:14.500
that’s that’s the answer for carbon 14

00:15:14.500 –> 00:15:18.010
dating now how do you get around light

00:15:18.010 –> 00:15:21.130
light is very important so when you look

00:15:21.130 –> 00:15:24.580
at the stars you can see that a

00:15:24.580 –> 00:15:29.710
starlight is a vast distance away and

00:15:29.710 –> 00:15:34.330
the notion is that by taking let’s say a

00:15:34.330 –> 00:15:38.740
star that’s 14 million light-years away

00:15:38.740 –> 00:15:42.190
then an evolutionist would say AHA see

00:15:42.190 –> 00:15:45.160
the Bible is wrong and because of

00:15:45.160 –> 00:15:46.750
looking at the light you can see that

00:15:46.750 –> 00:15:49.300
it’s not a young universe it’s not a

00:15:49.300 –> 00:15:52.690
young creation the Bible cannot be taken

00:15:52.690 –> 00:15:55.240
as plain reading of the Genesis creation

00:15:55.240 –> 00:15:57.400
account global flood so how does a

00:15:57.400 –> 00:15:59.380
creationist handle the distance

00:15:59.380 –> 00:16:02.339
starlight and it’s actually a

00:16:02.339 –> 00:16:05.759
simpler than you would think so what we

00:16:05.759 –> 00:16:08.519
do is we ask an evolutionist how do you

00:16:08.519 –> 00:16:10.529
explain a universe that’s a hundred

00:16:10.529 –> 00:16:13.319
billion light-years across and only

00:16:13.319 –> 00:16:16.499
sixteen billion years of time so we turn

00:16:16.499 –> 00:16:18.389
the question back on them and if they’re

00:16:18.389 –> 00:16:21.480
astute they’ll draw to physicist Dr.

00:16:21.480 –> 00:16:24.899
Alan Guth in dr. Alan Guth postulated a

00:16:24.899 –> 00:16:28.740
theory called Universal inflation and

00:16:28.740 –> 00:16:30.449
universal inflation is an excellent

00:16:30.449 –> 00:16:32.189
theory and what it what it contends is

00:16:32.189 –> 00:16:36.360
at the time of the Big Bang at the time

00:16:36.360 –> 00:16:38.100
of the expansion of the universe the

00:16:38.100 –> 00:16:39.300
expansion of the universe would be the

00:16:39.300 –> 00:16:40.829
second day of creation for those who

00:16:40.829 –> 00:16:43.259
follow scripture this was a violent

00:16:43.259 –> 00:16:47.279
expansion but at this time Dr. Alan

00:16:47.279 –> 00:16:49.050
Guth postulates that the universe

00:16:49.050 –> 00:16:51.749
expanded faster than the speed of light

00:16:51.749 –> 00:16:55.230
but it did so a very brief moment of

00:16:55.230 –> 00:16:58.050
time called a Planck time named after dr.

00:16:58.050 –> 00:17:01.079
plank and the duration of a plant time

00:17:01.079 –> 00:17:03.870
is so brief that it’s a billionth of a

00:17:03.870 –> 00:17:07.319
billionth of a millionth of one second

00:17:07.319 –> 00:17:10.829
and that’s that’s how long the duration

00:17:10.829 –> 00:17:14.189
of the violent and super fast

00:17:14.189 –> 00:17:16.049
expansion occurred

00:17:16.049 –> 00:17:17.880
well let’s let’s that’s a leap of faith

00:17:17.880 –> 00:17:20.010
of the of the how long that duration was

00:17:20.010 –> 00:17:22.409
for universal inflation how does a

00:17:22.409 –> 00:17:25.260
creationist handle the same question how

00:17:25.260 –> 00:17:28.020
does a creationist handle a universe

00:17:28.020 –> 00:17:31.289
being 100 billion light-years across and

00:17:31.289 –> 00:17:33.570
only let’s say six thousand years based

00:17:33.570 –> 00:17:35.730
on the genealogies provided in Genesis

00:17:35.730 –> 00:17:37.350
five in Genesis 11

00:17:37.350 –> 00:17:40.649
well the answer is is simple we would

00:17:40.649 –> 00:17:43.950
turn to physicist dr. Alan Guth and his

00:17:43.950 –> 00:17:46.710
postulate of universal inflation that at

00:17:46.710 –> 00:17:48.179
the time of the expansion of the

00:17:48.179 –> 00:17:49.590
universe which is the second day of

00:17:49.590 –> 00:17:52.110
creation then God expanded the universe

00:17:52.110 –> 00:17:53.940
faster than the speed of light and he

00:17:53.940 –> 00:17:56.309
did so a brief moment of time though we

00:17:56.309 –> 00:17:58.440
don’t go so brief as a planck time and

00:17:58.440 –> 00:18:00.360
yes that’s a leap of faith

00:18:00.360 –> 00:18:02.940
there’s no way to establish the the

00:18:02.940 –> 00:18:04.950
brevity of that duration we would

00:18:04.950 –> 00:18:07.080
estimate that the the duration of

00:18:07.080 –> 00:18:10.080
universal inflation were hours that’s

00:18:10.080 –> 00:18:12.960
all hours now

00:18:12.960 –> 00:18:15.929
the notion of light its postulated that

00:18:15.929 –> 00:18:17.700
the notion of light the speed of light

00:18:17.700 –> 00:18:20.159
is constant and then it’s always been

00:18:20.159 –> 00:18:23.760
constant so when someone who accepts a

00:18:23.760 –> 00:18:26.159
16 billion year old universe they would

00:18:26.159 –> 00:18:30.120
say x y and z star is let’s say a

00:18:30.120 –> 00:18:33.000
billion light-years away so therefore at

00:18:33.000 –> 00:18:33.899
a minimum

00:18:33.899 –> 00:18:36.539
it’s a billion light years old universe

00:18:36.539 –> 00:18:40.380
and that notion is flawed for several

00:18:40.380 –> 00:18:42.809
reasons one we’ve only been measuring

00:18:42.809 –> 00:18:45.720
the speed of light for a brief amount of

00:18:45.720 –> 00:18:49.110
time if if the universe from their

00:18:49.110 –> 00:18:51.149
notion is sixteen billion years years

00:18:51.149 –> 00:18:51.870
old

00:18:51.870 –> 00:18:54.690
they’ve only been measuring light for 50

00:18:54.690 –> 00:18:56.100
years or so

00:18:56.100 –> 00:18:58.620
so that’s a very brief amount of time so

00:18:58.620 –> 00:19:00.510
there are some and I don’t adhere to

00:19:00.510 –> 00:19:02.100
this theory that that the speed of light

00:19:02.100 –> 00:19:04.649
is subject to entropy in other words

00:19:04.649 –> 00:19:09.149
it’s decaying that it was faster towards

00:19:09.149 –> 00:19:10.919
the time of creation and has been ever

00:19:10.919 –> 00:19:13.559
slowing I don’t necessarily lean on this

00:19:13.559 –> 00:19:16.169
concept but they’re there are a few

00:19:16.169 –> 00:19:19.440
physicists that accept the notion that

00:19:19.440 –> 00:19:21.510
the speed of light is subject to

00:19:21.510 –> 00:19:23.100
interpretation is like all things are

00:19:23.100 –> 00:19:25.020
and that because we’ve been measuring

00:19:25.020 –> 00:19:26.880
its on such a brief amount of time that

00:19:26.880 –> 00:19:29.100
we can perceive that it has been

00:19:29.100 –> 00:19:32.100
decreasing but here here’s an accepted

00:19:32.100 –> 00:19:35.580
concept that I lean on one I leaned on

00:19:35.580 –> 00:19:37.710
Dr. Alan Guth postulate that the speed

00:19:37.710 –> 00:19:39.570
of the universe expands faster than the

00:19:39.570 –> 00:19:43.110
speed of light and and I simply expand

00:19:43.110 –> 00:19:45.299
the duration of that accelerated

00:19:45.299 –> 00:19:47.940
expansion two hours instead of such a

00:19:47.940 –> 00:19:49.470
brevity of time called the Planck time

00:19:49.470 –> 00:19:53.190
but this is quite interesting

00:19:53.190 –> 00:19:56.490
so is the speed of light constant well

00:19:56.490 –> 00:19:58.529
the answer is no and this is

00:19:58.529 –> 00:20:00.270
groundbreaking and this is this is

00:20:00.270 –> 00:20:04.260
shattering to the ceiling of of physics

00:20:04.260 –> 00:20:06.960
there have been physicist that have

00:20:06.960 –> 00:20:09.510
accelerated and different physics that

00:20:09.510 –> 00:20:12.419
have decelerated the speed of light they

00:20:12.419 –> 00:20:13.649
have accelerated the speed of light

00:20:13.649 –> 00:20:17.070
three hundred times faster than what we

00:20:17.070 –> 00:20:20.159
thought was a constant speed and that is

00:20:20.159 –> 00:20:23.490
amazing because if mankind can

00:20:23.490 –> 00:20:25.919
accelerate the speed of light then so to

00:20:25.919 –> 00:20:26.410
can God

00:20:26.410 –> 00:20:28.780
who made mankind in His image and they

00:20:28.780 –> 00:20:31.390
have they have decelerated slow

00:20:31.390 –> 00:20:33.760
the speed of light to a bicycle right

00:20:33.760 –> 00:20:36.130
and there’s no loss of information

00:20:36.130 –> 00:20:38.980
there’s no loss of the wavelength or the

00:20:38.980 –> 00:20:42.820
particle so it’s still light

00:20:42.820 –> 00:20:46.360
it’s still energy so mankind has

00:20:46.360 –> 00:20:49.000
accelerated and decelerated the speed of

00:20:49.000 –> 00:20:51.550
light which is amazing science

00:20:51.550 –> 00:20:55.990
so again man’s ways are not necessarily

00:20:55.990 –> 00:20:59.440
God’s ways and there’s a way unto man

00:20:59.440 –> 00:21:02.140
that seems right to him but leads to

00:21:02.140 –> 00:21:03.220
destruction

00:21:03.220 –> 00:21:06.550
so when mankind looks at carbon 14

00:21:06.550 –> 00:21:10.990
dating and they accept that carbon 14

00:21:10.990 –> 00:21:13.480
dating has been on a constant and

00:21:13.480 –> 00:21:16.210
unchanging decay path and then and they

00:21:16.210 –> 00:21:19.570
reject a global flood and they reject

00:21:19.570 –> 00:21:22.480
scripture well then to them it will seem

00:21:22.480 –> 00:21:26.080
that they carbon-14 dating agrees with

00:21:26.080 –> 00:21:28.840
them and establishes an old earth and

00:21:28.840 –> 00:21:32.590
that dinosaurs died off millions of

00:21:32.590 –> 00:21:37.930
years ago and when someone studies light

00:21:37.930 –> 00:21:40.750
specifically starlight well then it

00:21:40.750 –> 00:21:43.870
seems to them to be true that as you

00:21:43.870 –> 00:21:47.140
look at the starlight and you discount

00:21:47.140 –> 00:21:51.160
and in an old scripture and line up

00:21:51.160 –> 00:21:53.530
things to fit your preconceived paradigm

00:21:53.530 –> 00:21:56.590
that you need vast amounts of time to

00:21:56.590 –> 00:21:59.800
leave room for at macro-evolution from

00:21:59.800 –> 00:22:02.320
molecules to man when you need that

00:22:02.320 –> 00:22:04.150
amount of time then you’re going to lean

00:22:04.150 –> 00:22:08.530
on that the Starlight establishes an old

00:22:08.530 –> 00:22:12.430
universe but as we have used science to

00:22:12.430 –> 00:22:15.730
establish and used Dr. Alan Guth

00:22:15.730 –> 00:22:18.040
postulates a called Universal inflation

00:22:18.040 –> 00:22:22.120
so wonderful theory and use particle

00:22:22.120 –> 00:22:25.060
physicists that have done lab

00:22:25.060 –> 00:22:26.680
experiments and this has been repeated

00:22:26.680 –> 00:22:28.780
and observe this is not a faith-based

00:22:28.780 –> 00:22:32.590
that light can be altered the speed of

00:22:32.590 –> 00:22:33.160
light

00:22:33.160 –> 00:22:37.300
mankind has accelerated 300 times its

00:22:37.300 –> 00:22:38.390
current right

00:22:38.390 –> 00:22:41.090
have decelerated to a bicycle ride and

00:22:41.090 –> 00:22:43.610
since mankind can alter the speed of

00:22:43.610 –> 00:22:47.300
light then so to can God who made man in

00:22:47.300 –> 00:22:49.850
His image and that’s what’s so

00:22:49.850 –> 00:22:52.790
fascinating about science is that when

00:22:52.790 –> 00:22:55.400
you go through science if you stay at a

00:22:55.400 –> 00:22:58.220
distance and you fear science then when

00:22:58.220 –> 00:23:00.470
you read the articles that say science

00:23:00.470 –> 00:23:04.730
says the earth is XYZ billion years old

00:23:04.730 –> 00:23:07.520
4.6 billion years old and science says

00:23:07.520 –> 00:23:10.220
if you don’t follow that article down to

00:23:10.220 –> 00:23:12.590
its final hanging what is it hanging on

00:23:12.590 –> 00:23:15.380
and I assure you if you go through the

00:23:15.380 –> 00:23:17.840
science you’ll find that those articles

00:23:17.840 –> 00:23:20.900
that state science says they’re really

00:23:20.900 –> 00:23:23.030
hanging on the opinion of an

00:23:23.030 –> 00:23:25.700
evolutionary scientists and it is not

00:23:25.700 –> 00:23:28.670
science versus the Bible that couldn’t

00:23:28.670 –> 00:23:30.410
be further from the truth

00:23:30.410 –> 00:23:32.330
what you’ll find as you study the

00:23:32.330 –> 00:23:34.640
science as you go straight into science

00:23:34.640 –> 00:23:37.430
and science by the way it means to know

00:23:37.430 –> 00:23:41.300
so as you increase in knowledge you’ll

00:23:41.300 –> 00:23:44.150
see that it is not science versus the

00:23:44.150 –> 00:23:47.990
Bible it is science and the Bible verses

00:23:47.990 –> 00:23:50.450
the opinions of evolutionary scientist

00:23:50.450 –> 00:23:54.290
you must understand that science and the

00:23:54.290 –> 00:23:56.120
opinions of evolutionary scientists are

00:23:56.120 –> 00:24:00.680
not synonyms as you go through and you

00:24:00.680 –> 00:24:02.780
study science you’ll see that the Bible

00:24:02.780 –> 00:24:05.300
is in harmony with science and then

00:24:05.300 –> 00:24:07.880
you’ll realize the Bible is divine

00:24:07.880 –> 00:24:10.220
it’s inerrant and it’s infallible and

00:24:10.220 –> 00:24:13.310
what happens is now a stumbling block is

00:24:13.310 –> 00:24:15.710
removed and you’ll start to see that the

00:24:15.710 –> 00:24:17.120
Bible is divine

00:24:17.120 –> 00:24:19.820
it is inerrant and it is written for our

00:24:19.820 –> 00:24:22.460
understanding and so then when you read

00:24:22.460 –> 00:24:24.590
the testimony of god and his eyewitness

00:24:24.590 –> 00:24:28.400
account and he says you shall work six

00:24:28.400 –> 00:24:30.290
days and on the seventh day you should

00:24:30.290 –> 00:24:33.320
rest for i made the heavens and the

00:24:33.320 –> 00:24:35.870
earth and everything in them in six days

00:24:35.870 –> 00:24:39.350
and rested the seventh and God wrote

00:24:39.350 –> 00:24:41.180
this in stone

00:24:41.180 –> 00:24:46.130
not once twice Exodus chapter 20 verse

00:24:46.130 –> 00:24:51.059
11 and an exodus chapter 31 verse 17

00:24:51.059 –> 00:24:53.759
you’ll discover by using science that

00:24:53.759 –> 00:24:56.700
then you can rely on god’s eye witness

00:24:56.700 –> 00:24:59.940
testimony what he saw in did and you

00:24:59.940 –> 00:25:02.460
will increase in knowledge as you go

00:25:02.460 –> 00:25:05.580
through science and then fulfill what it

00:25:05.580 –> 00:25:08.700
says in Romans 10 17 Roman says faith

00:25:08.700 –> 00:25:11.700
comes from hearing the word the word of

00:25:11.700 –> 00:25:14.639
Jesus Christ and since all things were

00:25:14.639 –> 00:25:17.789
made through and from Jesus Christ as it

00:25:17.789 –> 00:25:20.759
says in Colossians 1 16 then when it

00:25:20.759 –> 00:25:23.399
when it says in Exodus and the Ten

00:25:23.399 –> 00:25:25.919
Commandments in stone that God made

00:25:25.919 –> 00:25:28.019
everything in six days and rested the

00:25:28.019 –> 00:25:30.749
seventh then you will know that to be

00:25:30.749 –> 00:25:33.360
true and it will take less faith to

00:25:33.360 –> 00:25:35.700
accept what’s plainly written and the

00:25:35.700 –> 00:25:38.429
Genesis creation account so I

00:25:38.429 –> 00:25:41.460
encourage you to not flee science but to

00:25:41.460 –> 00:25:43.289
run to it and if you have any questions

00:25:43.289 –> 00:25:45.419
you can go to my website creation

00:25:45.419 –> 00:25:48.269
ministry.org and contact me ask me any

00:25:48.269 –> 00:25:50.639
questions you wish and you can get my

00:25:50.639 –> 00:25:51.299
book

00:25:51.299 –> 00:25:54.450
origins the origins of matter space time

00:25:54.450 –> 00:25:57.570
in life where I would ask you to join me

00:25:57.570 –> 00:26:00.299
every saturday on the bridge and we can

00:26:00.299 –> 00:26:02.519
discuss the science that supports the

00:26:02.519 –> 00:26:04.740
Genesis creation account and the global

00:26:04.740 –> 00:26:06.210
flood you have been listening to

00:26:06.210 –> 00:26:08.580
creation ministry with your host Dr.

00:26:08.580 –> 00:26:49.660
