The Recent Epoch

Portrait of Charles Darwin gesturing for us to be quiet

September 14

Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.

(Isaiah 24:1) KJV

The recent epoch is everything since Peleg’s tectonics. Few people have had a greater influence on this time than Charles Darwin.

Biodiversity

mating pairs of animals leaving Noah's ark

September 3

They went into the ark with Noah, two and two of all flesh in which there was the breath of life. And those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in as God had commanded him. And the Lord shut him in.

(Genesis 7:15-16) ESV

There were two horses on Noah’s ark, a mating pair, now there are at least seven species in genus Equus. That’s macro-evolution. Noah’s ark was the beginning of evolution as we know it.

August 21

For the king had merchant ships at sea with the fleet of Hiram. Once every three years the merchant ships came bringing gold, silver, ivory, apes, and monkeys.

(1 Kings 10:22) KJV

The Paleocene is an ecosystem which has been destroyed, transported and buried in sediment during a world-wide flood.

Happy Anniversary!

August 15

This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.

(1 Timothy 1:15) KJV

We’re celebrating our anniversary: 32 years ago today we arrived in the USA. We were 19, lost, and filled with zeal for the theory of evolution which we thought was the antidote to God.

Insects Evolved Wings

Praise the Lord from the earth, You great sea creatures and all the depths; Fire and hail, snow and clouds; Stormy wind, fulfilling His word; Mountains and all hills; Fruitful trees and all cedars; Beasts and all cattle; Creeping things and flying fowl; Kings of the earth and all peoples; Princes and all judges of the earth; Both young men and maidens; Old men and children.

(Psalms 148:7-12) NKJV

If we find insects with wings in the buried remains of a Mississippi swamp, does it mean that insects evolved wings in the swamp? No, it means that insects with wings were buried in a swamp.

Sharks and Bony Fish

So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.”

(Genesis 1:21-22) NKJV

Sedimentary deposits containing sharks and bony fish can be assigned to the Mississippian because of how the evolution narrative, of development from primitive to advanced, overlays with the geological timescale.

Spread of Amphibians

Who say to the seers, “Do not see,” And to the prophets, “Do not prophesy to us right things; Speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits.

(Isaiah 30:10) NKJV

Amphibians were buried in a swamp. Does that mean that amphibians were spreading? No, it doesn’t, it means that amphibians lived in a swamp that got buried.

Extensive Swamps in Lowlands

It shall be that fishermen will stand by it from En Gedi to En Eglaim; they will be places for spreading their nets. Their fish will be of the same kinds as the fish of the Great Sea, exceedingly many. But its swamps and marshes will not be healed; they will be given over to salt.

(Ezekiel 47:10-11) NKJV

Most of the sedimentary deposits assigned to the Mississippian are coal beds in the Mississippi valley. The coal is the remains of swamp habitat that was buried in a world-wide flood.

Heterospory and the Seed Habit

By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.

(Hebrews 11:7) NKJV

Heterospory and the seed habit” is scientific smoke and mirrors. It sounds technical, so most folk will probably assume that so long as someone else understands it, then everything’s okay.

Brachiopods

Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth.

(Jeremiah 25:32) KJV

Brachiopods aren’t an evolutionary dead-end which got wiped out in a mass extinction. Well, there was a mass extinction, but it didn’t wipe out the Brachiopods.
