10 Evidences for a Young Earth
Evidence 1: Human-Dinosaur Coexistence

Evidence 2: Carbon-14 in Everything
One of the methods used by evolutionists to date fossils younger than 50,000 years is radiocarbon dating, since the half-life of Carbon-14 is only 5,730 years. Yet, Carbon-14 has been found in everything—including all the earth’s diamonds that are supposedly 1-3 billion years old! See: Radiocarbon in Diamonds Confirmed
Evidence 3: Missing Salt in the Ocean This is much more consistent with the Biblical timescale of about 6,000 years when the global Flood is taken into account, and the likelihood that oceans were already salty at the time of creation.
Evidence 4: Recession of the Moon
According to evolutionists, the moon and Earth are about 4.54 billion years old. Yet, based on the current rate at which the moon is moving away from Earth (4cm per year), which would have been even higher in the past, the moon and Earth would have touched each other way before then. In fact, they would have been within catastrophic proximity in less than 1.4 billion years.
Evidence 5: Missing Supernova Fragments
Evidence 6: Missing mtDNA Mutations
According to scientists, the highest number of mitochondrial DNA mutations recorded in the human race is around 100. Yet, based on the current rate of 0.5 mutations per generation, it would take only 200 generations, less than 6,000 years, to accumulate this number. In a 1997 research paper, Evolutionists admitted, “Using our empirical rate to calibrate the mtDNA molecular clock would result in an age of the mtDNA MRCA [most recent common ancestor or the first human woman] of only ~6,500 years.” Of course, it received little attention in the evolutionary community.
Evidence 7: Rapidly Decaying Magnetic Field
According to scientists, the earth’s magnetic field, which protects us from solar radiation, has been rapidly decaying at a rate of 5% per century. Yet, based on the current rate, the field and thus the earth could be no older than 20,000 years, since Earth would have been unable to support life due to heat from the electric current by then.
Evidence 8: Origin of Civilization and Agriculture
According to evolutionists, the first humans were born in Africa around 200,000 years ago. Yet, ancient man only began making written records, beautiful cave paintings, and even building megalithic monuments about 4,000 to 5,000 years ago. Agriculture is also said to have begun only 10,000 years ago. Why would they wait two thousand centuries before using the same skills to record history? And why did none of them discover that plants grow from seeds?
Evidence 9: Missing Stone-Age Skeletons and Artifacts
According to evolutionists, the world population was roughly between one and ten million at the time agriculture began, which means at least eight billion bodies and their artifacts would have been buried since the supposed first Homo sapien. Yet, only a few thousand stone age skeletons and artifacts have been found…
Evidence 10: Oldest Living Organism
The theory of evolution which relies upon an old earth and universe forces scientists to try to "debunk" what would otherwise be a plain testimony: that the earth is only a few thousand years old. Although the Bible does not give an exact age of the earth, there is no indication in Scripture that the earth is very old. In fact, a simple addition of the genealogies in Genesis suggests that the earth is around 6,000-10,000 years old. It is yet another confirmation of the infallibility of God’s Word.
