The Heavens Declare – The Earth

 

Earth

 

Today in our series of the solar system we are going to speak briefly about Earth. I could stay on this subject for months and not cover all the tremendous beauty and majesty of the Creators creation. However, to keep things organized, I’ll just talk about Earth as a planet.

Earth is the third planet from the Sun and is the only planet known to be inhabited. Secular models suggest this planet is 4.5 billion years old right now, although those numbers tend to change from decade to decade. Earth is over 70% water, with the perfect atmosphere to sustain life, and a magnetic field that protects it from the Suns charged particles. Its axis is tilted slightly giving us light seasonal changes. It rotates at a speed slow enough not to cause disastrous winds, and fast enough to insure the side of the Earth facing away from the Sun doesn’t freeze.

The main evidence as a planet the Earth gives against the secular models is the large amount of water. If you smoothed out the Earth’s surface, the oceans would flood the entire planet with a mile and a half deep of water. That’s a lot of H2O. If Earth was created this close to the sun, there’s no possible way for it to have water. Evolutionists have tried to invoke asteroids, or comets, as the means for this water. There are numerous problems with this, such as the composition of ice. However, even if those objects had the right materials, there isn’t enough of them to produce our water supply. The issues don’t subside there. Our magnetic field is also a problem for evolutionary models. Earth’s magnetic field looses half its energy every 1400 years, so if you work that back, the magnetic field couldn’t be more than 20,000 years old. All secular astronomers admit that geomagnetic fields are simply a mystery. They have no explanation for it. The last problem I want to list, although I encourage you all to research further as I’m just scratching the surface, is that Earth should be old, cold, and dead like the other planets. But, after so called “billions of years”, our planet’s core still radiates immense heat, and volcanic activity persists in spite of what should be happening.

 

John-1-3

What was Gods purpose for Earth? God created the Earth for man. Many theologians call this Gods common grace. I have often felt that if I had never been given the unbelievable gift of salvation, just the grace God gave me in allowing me to live my life with my beautiful daughter and amazing husband would be more than I ever deserved. This is what’s meant by common grace, not that the grace itself is common, but that it’s given to everyone.

I hope you’re still enjoying this series, beloved, and that you’re being encouraged to stand firm in Gods Word. As always, friends, be good Bereans and study to show yourselves approved!

    1. There is clear evidence that the magnetic field flips, no creationist denies that. However there’s no way to prove that it flips every 20k years that’s an assumption to give evolutionism a fighting chance. Either way, regardless of the magnetic field flipping, that doesn’t change the evidence that the magnetic field is young not old. There is no working model that explains this, not even the flipping of fields. There’s too little understood about the magnetic field to even logically assume it regains strength from flipping. If anything, this baseless assumption makes the science around evolutionism appear to be based on opinions rather than fact.
