The Theory of the Early Earth

Article By: Dannika

A theory that I wrote an informative essay on for English class.

It's about the creation theory.

A/N: Most of it was put together from random articles, but a great deal is true, although I've never actually spoken from a known reliable source.

Just hope it's interesting that we have found actual scientific evidence of the Creation Theory.

Theory of the Early Earth

For thousands of years, the theory of creation versus evolution has been a silent war, raging in the minds of millions of people. Over the years, scientists have been collecting evidence of both theories, furthering the humans' knowledge of the Early Earth.

In Genesis 1:7 it states, "And God made the firmament and separated the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament.", or in other words, God separated the Great Deep (meaning all the water on earth) from the atmosphere, which was made completely of water, by a firmament that he called "Heaven".

Scientists have recently discovered important scientific evidence of this theory of how the world began. The theory is that before the Great Flood, believed to have happened around 80 million years ago, there was an atmosphere twice as thick as ours today. This atmosphere doubled the total oxygen on the earth, and shielded the world from harmful UV rays that cause aging. It doubled the pressure on earth, creating a temperate climate on all the land. Organisms grew larger and lived longer.

Back then, the earth was a tropical paradise, as is our description of Adam and Eve's 'Eden'. Some creationists have discovered numerous influences, causing the world-wide temperate conditions, such as evidence of far greater concentrations of carbon dioxide in the air, suggesting that this thicker atmosphere also controlled the amount of air, not only carbon dioxide, but the many other gases on earth, that escaped into outer space. Russel D. Humphreys states in his novel, Starlight and Time, that the earth's magnetic field was much stronger 80 million years ago than it is now, acting as a shield against cosmic radiation, and ultimately producing a healthier environment. Some have noted that this atmosphere could have doubled the pressure on earth, again contributing to the drastically lush environment. Associate professor of Geology at the University of Cincinnati, Thomas Lowell, explains high concentrations of water vapor in the atmosphere lead to a warmer climate. If there is less water vapor, the climate becomes colder.

Creationist John Baumgardner suggests that the atmosphere around the Early Earth was far thicker than it is today. He also states that the exploding of the fountains of the Great Deep (possibly referring to volcanic eruptions under the ocean during the primal stages of the Great Flood) stripped some of this atmosphere away.

This atmosphere doubled the oxygen on the earth, and the organisms were equipped to breathe this heightened amount of oxygen. The sun's UV rays, which cause aging, were blocked almost completely by this thicker atmosphere, causing organisms to live longer. We discovered that reptiles do not stop growing until they die. So, if these reptiles were living longer, that would cause them to grow to massive sizes. We all know that dinosaurs show significant similarities with some reptiles on earth today. Some creationists believe that dinosaurs were simply reptiles and beings that lived far too long.

Researchers collected evidence in South America and New Zealand that the climate changes during the Pleistocene Era, around 2 million years ago, occurred rapidly and were global in scale, suggesting that the atmosphere fell during this time.

It is said that dinosaurs roamed the earth nearly 65 million years before man. This evidence was discovered from the bones of these beings. But if this atmosphere caused these organisms to grow faster, then perhaps our previous belief that these dinosaurs lived 65 million years ago was wrong. The bones may have appeared to be this old, when they were really younger than we believed.

When this atmosphere fell, flooding the earth, some of the animals simply shrunk, or were not able to breathe, due to the loss of oxygen in the air. The climate went through serious fluctuations, creating havoc over the entire world and possibly causing the ice age.

Over the last 100 years we have discovered evidence that dinosaurs may have lived with humans, Eden, the world-wide paradise, may have actually existed, and the Holy Bible's version of how the world began may be close to the truth.
