Genesis 1: 9-10 “Then God said, “Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so. God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good. “

This colorway is one of my “Days of Creation” series.

Day 3- Part 1

Day 3 has two parts. The first deals with the creation of our Earth. Looking for more proof, I again turned to Frank Harber. On page 25, he states: “The Earth’s crust is extremely thin, much thinner than the skin of an apple in comparison. Beneath the crust is molten lava. If the earth was only 10 feet thicker on the outside, the additional matter would have oxidized all the available oxygen out of the air when the world began, making life impossible.”

Honestly, it is so much fun to learn this type of information. I grew up in a Christian home, believing in God. But all through school, I spent time battling what I was being taught with what I had been taught and believed. I have been so relieved for resources like this book. For it allows me to see how perfect everything is in the universe. How just one itty-bitty change and things would not be here or be the same.

We also love “Answers in Genesis”. I’ve linked an article I found very helpful and informative. http://www.answersingenesis.org/creation/v21/i1/seas.asp

The article is entitled, “Salty seas—evidence for a young earth” by Jonathan Sarfati. His conclusion states, “The salinity of the oceans is a strong evidence that they, and the Earth itself, are far younger than the billions of years required for evolution, and is consistent with the biblical age of about 6,000 years. It is also far younger than the evolutionists’ ‘dates’ for many marine creatures. In short, the sea is not salty enough to suit the taste of evolutionists! Of course, all such calculations depend on assumptions about the past, like the starting conditions and constant rates of processes. They can never prove the age of something. For that, we need an eye-witness (cf. Job 38:4). The point of such calculations is to demonstrate that even under the evolutionists’ own assumptions about the past, the Earth is far younger than is usually claimed and does not contradict the Bible.”

This good earth is crying out that our God is good!
