Is the earth billions of years old, or just thousands?
Does it Matter?
Did God create our world in six literal days, or did it evolve on its own over countless eons of time?
The age of the earth—a key question in the creation/evolution debate—has been portrayed as an issue of science versus religion, but is it really that simple?
The answers to these questions are vital to understanding not just earth science, but also the biblical record. Dr. John Morris’ The Young Earth scientifically examines the evidence to see what the earth actually reveals about itself. This classic and definitive work, newly revised and expanded, demonstrates that the Bible can be trusted in questions of science and history.
The Young Earth offers both compelling scientific analysis and effective biblical exposition. A powerful resource, it also includes a CD with PowerPoint presentations that illustrate such key concepts as salt levels in the oceans, the age of the atmosphere, the accumulation of ocean sediments, and much more.
Updated and expanded, this classic work from the president of the Institute for Creation Research is a guide for the layman to the truth of Genesis. Morris studies geology, culture, and various creation theories to give a true picture of Earth history. Explodes popular misconceptions about the age of the earth by exposing the shaky reasoning behind radiometric dating; Morris's discussion of these fallacies alone is worth the price of the book. Helps readers understand that fossils are dated to vast ages by calculating that the sil they are found in is millions of years old -- a startling "trade secret" among evolutionists.
• Great for presentations and personal study
