What does geology say about the age of the earth? Why do some geologists study the evidence and come to the conclusion that the earth is old, but others conclude that the earth is young? If you study this topic, you may hear what sounds like solid scientific evidence to support both sides, which makes it even more confusing!

Thankfully, I know an expert who can help us have a basic understanding of what the evidence says. Dr. John Whitmore, Professor of Geology at Cedarville University, joins me this week for the Creation Today Show, “Creation Geology? Is That a Thing?” One of the things I love about Dr. Whitmore is his willingness to be transparent about the field of Creation Geology and what the evidence says. According to him, Biblical geologists are few and far between, so a lot of work still has to be done!

Despite this, Dr. Whitmore describes how various geologic formations that have been used to prove an old earth need further study because the evidence doesn’t fully line up. On top of this, the so-called dating methods used consistently in geology are completely unreliable. With this in mind, it is clear to see that there is much progress yet to be made.

Dr. Whitmore encourages us to call out the younger generation of geologists among us so we can advance the field. As the saying goes, “Many hands make light work,” and the same is true in the study of geology. The more Creation geologists we have studying the evidence, the faster we can understand the beauty of the world around us. 

You don’t want to miss this conversation, and you especially want to see Dr. Whitmore’s passion for this subject! So grab your favorite snack and get ready for some geology information that really ROCKS! (Sorry…I had to sneak at least one pun in there!)
