The evidence against a recent creation is overwhelming.

There is perhaps no greater attack on science than Young Earth creationism (YEC).

Roman poet Lucretius, intellectual heir to the Greek atomists, believed its formation must have been relatively recent, given that there were no records going back beyond the Trojan War.

The Talmudic rabbis, Martin Luther and others used the biblical account to extrapolate back from known history and came up with rather similar estimates for when the earth came into being.

Even so, no land areas of the globe experience record cold in April.

Over the long run, human-caused global warming has loaded the dice, making unusual warmth much more likely than unusual cold. For example, between 19, much less than 1 percent of the Northern Hemisphere’s land areas experienced extreme heat during summer.

The fusion models of the sun can be calculated with computers and they give a compatible brightness compared with observations. Sienkiewicz, Helioseismology and the solar age, , either directly or by logical implication. This is actually a severe problem for evolutionists so that the sun is hot enough. A helium nucleus (alpha particle) takes up less room than four hydrogen nuclei (protons).

Second, creationists appeal to the Omphalos hypothesis and argue that God deceptively created the world to appear old.

This is an unfalsifiable hypothesis, and is unscientific.

Helioseismology is an phenomenon, where the sun’s surface undulates in a timescale of minutes and hours, this can be seen from the spectral-lines (part of the surface comes towards and some goes in the opposite direction and a Doppler-transition is seen ): (picture below) These sound waves travel through the sun and are dependent on the internal structure and the ratioprofile of He/H, etc. Any age calculations must make an assumption about the initial composition of the sun, assuming very little helium to begin with.

This internal undulation and its “spectral analysis” gives quite tight margin for models of the sun, for its internal structure and for the age of the sun so, that the age of the sun was calculated in 1999 to be 4.66±0.11 billion years. Yet as shown above, this would make the sun colder.

This position came to be known as uniformitarianism, but within it we must distinguish between uniformity of natural law (which nearly all of us would accept) and the increasingly questionable assumptions of uniformity of process, uniformity of rate and uniformity of outcome.
