Dinosaur Train … Wreck! How Real Dinosaur Finds Testify of a Watery Mega-Catastrophe

Recently I was doing a little research on Dinosaurs, so naturally at one point I did what we all do: I typed in “dinosaur” into a Google search. One thing that peaked my interest is that by the time I typed “d-i-n-o-s…”, Google was already suggesting a term as it’s number one suggestion: Dinosaur Train. Dinosaur Train is a children’s cartoon depicting, but of course, the supposed ‘world of dinosaurs.’ It offers a steady diet of indoctrination into the supposed Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous “eras.” The evolutionary sequences and timelines are simply presumed. If you climb aboard this “Dinosaur Train,” you’ll visit different dinosaur periods, what life was like for them, what environments they thrived in, and etc. But if you deboard from this Dinosaur Train, and actually take a look at the one and only source that could provide evidence for these evolutionary tales – the burial sites that contain dinosaur bones – we observe a radically different narrative. These burial sites speak loud and clear of a Dinosaur Train Wreck! Continue reading “Dinosaur Train … Wreck! How Real Dinosaur Finds Testify of a Watery Mega-Catastrophe”

Erosion — The Ultimate Fact Check on a ‘Billions of Years Old’ Earth

We hear it and read it daily: This or that formation is said to have formed 332 million years ago, or 3 billion years ago, or “just” 33 million years ago. Have you ever thought of “fact checking” those claims? I submit that erosion rates provide one of the ultimate fact checks in this regard. Amazingly, this exercise takes no more than some simple arithmetic to demonstrate the impossibility that the earth is multi millions (let alone billions) of years old.

Everybody agrees that the earth is constantly eroding away. Day in and day out, rain and water run-off (the main culprits) constantly wear down the surface of the earth. It’s not just the earth that water erodes: the worst culprit for destroying houses and properties in general is water run-off. A house with a bad roof or with dysfunctional gutters is in a serious danger zone of ‘going to pot,’ but that property is just as at threat if it does not properly drain the surface run-off waters (i.e. keep it out of the field, and out of the basement). Obviously, most of us have only concerned ourselves with our own little properties, not with the earth in general, but the fact is, it’s the same exact processes of erosion that constantly wear down the surface of the earth, and which transport that flux of material, of sediments, and of dirt to the sea and into drainage basins. With this context set, let’s now do some fact checking.

According to one source, the average erosion rate of all of the continents of the world is about .061 millimeters per year.1  Continue reading “Erosion — The Ultimate Fact Check on a ‘Billions of Years Old’ Earth”
