The age of the Grand Canyon and the Age of Life, by Nic Samojluk

Grand Canyon.2

For a long time, there was a uniformitarian consensus that the Grand Canyon was about 6 million years old. However, the article posted below presents new data that is interpreted to favor an age of 17 million years.

Ref.: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/07/science/07canyon.html?ref=us

But an even more recent article claims that canyon formation began 70 million years BP:

Ref.: http://geology.com/articles/age-of-the-grand-canyon.shtm

So which age is correct? 6 million years, 17 million years, 70 million years, or something else?

Evidently the discrepancy between the opinions of scientists is getting ridiculously larger and larger, which confirms my suspicion that there might be something wrong with the dating techniques we use. Perhaps the time is ripe to consider some alternatives. If experts can’t accurately measure the age of dirt, how can we rely when they try to date life?

Life is more fragile than rocks! We need to insert some common sense into our scientific endeavors and be more humble in the way we present the scientific facts of nature. What we think we know about the past might be miles away from reality and truth.

I am not a scientist, but the Lord has granted me a small portion of common sense. This common sense tells me that if scientists attribute such a discrepant number to the age of the Grand Canyon, this suggests that something might be terribly wrong with their dating methods.

How can I rely on the results of their research if one tells me that the GC is six million years old, while others assert that the right number is seventeen, and a third one claims that the correct number is seventy million years?

  1. Why post secular articles that refute the word of YAHUAH?

    • The answer is contained in the last paragraph of the article:

      “How can I rely on the results of their research if one tells me that the GC is six million years old, while others assert that the right number is seventeen, and a third one claims that the correct number is seventy million years?”

      It contains my reason for rejecting the long ages of the evolutionary geology. It shows that the theory of evolution is not based on true science. How can science be so imprecise?

      Nic

      • Yes all your points are correct. I was just trying to point out that we should not give falsehood a platform to spread itself, for some might become deceived.

      • If evolutionist scientists cannot agree on the age of dirt [rocks] then why should we rely on their opinions about the age of human life?

        Nic

      • I don’t. I have heard the scientific evidences on both sides of the argument and think creation science has the strongest evidence. But even if they didn’t I would still side with scripture. Science has a long history of changing what they think is truth.

      • Yes, scientists pretend to solve the problem by adding millions of years to past geological events. Of course, there is no way to disprove their claim, showing that their theory does not rest on solid scientific ground.

        Nic

      • Actually there is evidence that dispells their claim of ancient earth forming over millions of years. The Institute for Creation Research website displays most of it.

      • Yes, but evolutionists are not interested in evidence contrary to their pet theories.

        Nic

      • And neither are the beurocrats in our federal government who hand out grant money to study the issue.

      • It’s easy for them to do this, since it is tax payer money.

        Nic

      • Future taxpayer money, borrowed money, taxation without representation, thievery.

      • Yes! This reminds me of several decades ago when we first arrived in California from Argentina. The price of a brand new home could be purchased for $16,000 dollars. Now, the price is more like $400,000.

        What happened to the mighty dollar?

        Nic

      • That must have been a long time ago. Inflation is driven by supply and demand but not just supply and demand of goods and services but the supply and demand of a nation’s currency as well. The US government knows this and uses inflation over time to help devalue its debt burden. One tactic is to print more money. When $1 of debt sits on the books until the purchasing power of that dollar becomes a dime, the tax revenues to repay that dollar rose along with incomes that rose to offset the increasing cost of goods and services. Problem is the government is addicted to borrowing money and just can’t get enough. I am hopeful the current executive administration will be able to force the legislatures to sober up – time will tell. Anyway in another 20-30 years none of this will matter if Yahushua at the beginning of the 6,000 millennium of planet earth (2044ish) – the millennial Sabbath. Just my personal theory.

      • I see this as a clever maneuver to tax people without their consent.

        Nic

      • Should read “if Yahushua returns”

      • BTW, most readers may wonder who “Yahushua” is!

        Nic

      • Can you tell me why you have a preference for said name over the other alternatives?

        Nic

      • My preference is to honor my King, Yahushua, and my Father, YAHUAH, by using the name Father YAHUAH introduced Himself by in His Word and the name He named His Son. The Word of YAHUAH clearly states He is holy, His name is holy, and His Word is holy. I respect that, honor that, and reverence that. I was never one to call my superiors by the nick-names my cohorts made up for them, and neither did they to their superior’s face.

      • Did Jesus ever refer to his Father is Hahuah?

        Nic

      • Apparently so. Some examples follow:
        Matthew 6:9
        “Pray, then, in this way: ‘Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
        Matthew 23:39
        For I say to you, from now on you will not see Me until you say, ‘Blessed IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF YAHUAH !'” (Yahushuah Quoting Psalm 118:26)
        Matthew 28:19
        Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,
        Luke 4:18-19 NASB
        “The SPIRIT OF YAHUAH IS UPON ME, BECAUSE HE ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR. HE HAS SENT ME TO PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES, AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED, [19] To PROCLAIM THE FAVORABLE YEAR OF YAHUAH .” (Yahushua reading Isaiah 61:2-2a)
        John 5:43
        I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, you will receive him.
        John 10:25
        Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe; the works that I do in My Father’s name, these testify of Me.
        John 12:28
        Father, glorify Your name.” Then a voice came out of heaven: “I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.”
        John 17:6
        “I have manifested Your name to the men whom You gave Me out of the world; they were Yours and You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word.
        John 17:11-12
        I am no longer in the world; and yet they themselves are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep them in Your name, the name which You have given Me, that they may be one even as We are. [12] While I was with them, I was keeping them in Your name which You have given Me; and I guarded them and not one of them perished but the son of perdition, so that the Scripture would be fulfilled.
        John 17:26
        and I have made Your name known to them, and will make it known, so that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”

      • If God revealed himself with so many names, why should I use your chosen name of God?

        “Question: “What are the different names of God and what do they mean?”

        Answer: Each of the many names of God describes a different aspect of His many-faceted character. Here are some of the better-known names of God in the Bible:

        EL, ELOAH [el, el-oh-ah]: God “mighty, strong, prominent” (Nehemiah 9:17; Psalm 139:19) – etymologically, El appears to mean “power,” as in “I have the power to harm you” (Genesis 31:29). El is associated with other qualities, such as integrity (Numbers 23:19), jealousy (Deuteronomy 5:9), and compassion (Nehemiah 9:31), but the root idea of “might” remains.

        ELOHIM[el-oh-heem]: God “Creator, Mighty and Strong” (Genesis 17:7; Jeremiah 31:33) – the plural form of Eloah, which accommodates the doctrine of the Trinity. From the Bible’s first sentence, the superlative nature of God’s power is evident as God (Elohim) speaks the world into existence (Genesis 1:1).

        EL SHADDAI [el-shah-dahy]: “God Almighty,” “The Mighty One of Jacob” (Genesis 49:24; Psalm 132:2,5) – speaks to God’s ultimate power over all.

        ADONAI [ˌædɒˈnaɪ; ah-daw-nahy]: “Lord” (Genesis 15:2; Judges 6:15) – used in place of YHWH, which was thought by the Jews to be too sacred to be uttered by sinful men. In the Old Testament, YHWH is more often used in God’s dealings with His people, while Adonai is used more when He deals with the Gentiles.

        YHWH / YAHWEH / JEHOVAH [yah-way / ji-hoh-veh]: “LORD” (Deuteronomy 6:4; Daniel 9:14) – strictly speaking, the only proper name for God. Translated in English Bibles “LORD” (all capitals) to distinguish it from Adonai, “Lord.” The revelation of the name is first given to Moses “I Am who I Am” (Exodus 3:14). This name specifies an immediacy, a presence. Yahweh is present, accessible, near to those who call on Him for deliverance (Psalm 107:13), forgiveness (Psalm 25:11) and guidance (Psalm 31:3).

        YAHWEH-JIREH [yah-way-ji-reh]: “The Lord Will Provide” (Genesis 22:14) – the name memorialized by Abraham when God provided the ram to be sacrificed in place of Isaac.

        YAHWEH-RAPHA [yah-way-raw-faw]: “The Lord Who Heals” (Exodus 15:26) – “I am Jehovah who heals you” both in body and soul. In body, by preserving from and curing diseases, and in soul, by pardoning iniquities.

        YAHWEH-NISSI [yah-way-nee-see]: “The Lord Our Banner” (Exodus 17:15), where banner is understood to be a rallying place. This name commemorates the desert victory over the Amalekites in Exodus 17.

        YAHWEH-M’KADDESH [yah-way-meh-kad-esh]: “The Lord Who Sanctifies, Makes Holy” (Leviticus 20:8; Ezekiel 37:28) – God makes it clear that He alone, not the law, can cleanse His people and make them holy.

        YAHWEH-SHALOM [yah-way-shah-lohm]: “The Lord Our Peace” (Judges 6:24) – the name given by Gideon to the altar he built after the Angel of the Lord assured him he would not die as he thought he would after seeing Him.

        YAHWEH-ELOHIM [yah-way-el-oh-him]: “LORD God” (Genesis 2:4; Psalm 59:5) – a combination of God’s unique name YHWH and the generic “Lord,” signifying that He is the Lord of Lords.

        YAHWEH-TSIDKENU [yah-way-tzid-kay-noo]: “The Lord Our Righteousness” (Jeremiah 33:16) – As with YHWH-M’Kaddesh, it is God alone who provides righteousness (from the Hebrew word tsidkenu) to man, ultimately in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ, who became sin for us “that we might become the Righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21).

        YAHWEH-ROHI [yah-way-roh-hee]: “The Lord Our Shepherd” (Psalm 23:1) – After David pondered his relationship as a shepherd to his sheep, he realized that was exactly the relationship God had with him, and so he declares, “Yahweh-Rohi is my Shepherd. I shall not want” (Psalm 23:1).

        YAHWEH-SHAMMAH [yah-way-sham-mahw]: “The Lord Is There” (Ezekiel 48:35) – the name ascribed to Jerusalem and the Temple there, indicating that the once-departed glory of the Lord (Ezekiel 8—11) had returned (Ezekiel 44:1-4).

        YAHWEH-SABAOTH [yah-way-sah-bah-ohth]: “The Lord of Hosts” (Isaiah 1:24; Psalm 46:7) – Hosts means “hordes,” both of angels and of men. He is Lord of the host of heaven and of the inhabitants of the earth, of Jews and Gentiles, of rich and poor, master and slave. The name is expressive of the majesty, power, and authority of God and shows that He is able to accomplish what He determines to do.

        EL ELYON [el-el-yohn]: “Most High” (Deuteronomy 26:19) – derived from the Hebrew root for “go up” or “ascend,” so the implication is of that which is the very highest. El Elyon denotes exaltation and speaks of absolute right to lordship.

        EL ROI [el-roh-ee]: “God of Seeing” (Genesis 16:13) – the name ascribed to God by Hagar, alone and desperate in the wilderness after being driven out by Sarah (Genesis 16:1-14). When Hagar met the Angel of the Lord, she realized she had seen God Himself in a theophany. She also realized that El Roi saw her in her distress and testified that He is a God who lives and sees all.

        EL-OLAM [el-oh-lahm]: “Everlasting God” (Psalm 90:1-3) – God’s nature is without beginning or end, free from all constraints of time, and He contains within Himself the very cause of time itself. “From everlasting to everlasting, You are God.”

        EL-GIBHOR [el-ghee-bohr]: “Mighty God” (Isaiah 9:6) – the name describing the Messiah, Christ Jesus, in this prophetic portion of Isaiah. As a powerful and mighty warrior, the Messiah, the Mighty God, will accomplish the destruction of God’s enemies and rule with a rod of iron (Revelation 19:15).”

      • I know of no scripture where YAHUAH says he has any other name than YAHUAH. I am well aware of the doctrines of men that claim otherwise.
        Isaiah 42:8
        “I am YAHUAH, that is My name; I will not give My glory to another, Nor My praise to graven images.
        Jeremiah 16:21
        “Therefore behold, I am going to make them know- This time I will make them know My power and My might; And they shall know that My name is YAHUAH.”

      • Read my previous posting!

      • Yahushua, whose name means YAHUAH saves, is the only begotten son of YAHUAH, co-creator of the universe and anointed by His Father as king and high priest of the same. Proclaimed by himself to be the way the truth and the life, the light of the world. Proclaimed by the Apostle John to be the Word of YAHUAH that became flesh and dwelt among men who willingly laid his life down for all, our passover lamb, by whose blood sprinkled on the doorpost of our hearts will protect us from the angel of death on that great and fearful day of YAHUAH. HalleluYAH Praise YAHUAH for His love endures forever!

  2. Dear Nic:

    Your figures about the age of the Grand Canyon are correct. In case it is any help, I have two DISCUSSIONS about laying down the layers and carving the Grand Canyon on y webpages: http://www.sciencrsandscriptures.com , they are my most downloaded items. Keep up the good work. Ariel.

    • Thanks, Ariel, for your comments.

      BTW, the link you provided does not work.

      Nic
