Millions of Years, Evolution, and Creation

P1040559

The beach is my favorite pondering point to think about three things –

  1. What the bible says about a literal 7 day creation
  2. What Christian scientists say about gap theories and each day being as a thousand
  3. and Scientists who promote millions of years with evolution.

I don’t claim to be an expert but rather an observer folding this in with my belief that the Flood was literal and world wide. If the earth was created in 7 days, and Genesis is pretty clear about years and ages of men from Adam to Christ, and we are clear on time from Christ to now – then one has to question Millions of years – when you see things like Clams fully formed as fossils in the layer of rock that is 5o million years old.

This week I was photographing rock that had fallen off of  cliff. The lava – air – holes were so beautiful. This rock was black. Dark rich black. Something dull caught my eye. A piece of carbon? Charcoal? Something organic. Embedded in the rock, that had fallen off the cliff, in the last year.

As we looked at other boulders were inspected – we found a larger piece. I rubbed my finger across it and it was soft. There were discoloration around substance as you can see on the photo.

So I had Nate collect some with his handy dandy knife.

We brought it home and looked under a microscope.

Anyone know what sort of organic substance this would be?

Fun to explore, observe and ponder.  If some believe  that – In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth – pause – and then on the first day He started creating organic substances – then how could you find organic material in a rock that local scientists say is 30-50 billion years old? Hmmm.

    Really like the photo under the microscope. How did you get that shot?

      Thanks! We have a good microscope. I put my handheld pocket camera up to the eye piece. Sometimes it works better to put it on Macro mode, other times not. Sometimes it is best to pull the lens just a bit up from the eye piece.

I love to hear from my readers, I appreciate comments!
