We all have the same evidence

Jesus said to them, “If you were blind, you would have no guilt; but now that you say, ‘We see,’ your guilt remains.

(John 9:41) ESV

An example of evidence is the worldwide distribution of sedimentary rock. In geology it’s called the stratigraphic column. We could euphemistically call it a scientific fact, although the word fact is sufficient by itself.

A stratigraphic column is a representation used in geology and its subfield of stratigraphy to describe the vertical location of rock units in a particular area. A typical stratigraphic column shows a sequence of sedimentary rocks, with the oldest rocks on the bottom and the youngest on top.

– Stratigraphic column, definition (Wikipedia)

The question isn’t whether or not the stratigraphic column is evidence, the question should be: what is it evidence of? This is why our choice of paradigm is so important, because it’s going to determine what we believe about the evidence.

The Stratigraphic Column is evidence of…

  1. In the popular science paradigm (SciPop) it’s used as evidence for:
    • the Geological Timescale, a contrivance of circular reasoning which is the backbone of Darwinian evolution.
    • It’s divided into sections like Cambrian, Silurian, Ordovician, Devonian etc.
  2. In Matty’s Paradigm it’s evidence for:
    1. the creation of gravity and the core accretion model,
      • Precambrian (Gravitian) fossils were deposited on the second day.
    2. Noah’s flood,
      • Cambrian-Quaternary (Noachian) fossils were deposited in Noah’s flood.

We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.
