The beach is my favorite pondering point to think about three things –
- What the bible says about a literal 7 day creation
- What Christian scientists say about gap theories and each day being as a thousand
- 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.
