    Will the Real Dr Snelling Please Stand Up?

    The first version of this same person pretends to be a Young Earth Creationist. The second version, not so much.

    How can one person publish being a Young Earth Creationist for Answers in Genesis and also publish findings of a very old Earth elsewhere? Dishonesty.

    I don't know. I have been unsure of AIG for a long time.

    The most important is to meet the only side of answer in Genesis, which was showed by the Most High and Almighty God to Moses, around 2500 years after Adam. In the beginning - in JESUS - God created the heavens - the first, and the 2nd, and the 3rd heavens, and the heaven of heavens.

    On the other hand, as said the Apostle Peter-2Pe.3:v.7-13, it is important to know also that the heavens and the earth, WHICH ARE NOW - i.e. the 1st and the 2nd heavens -, by the same Word are kept in store, reserved unto FIRE against the Day of Judgment - the Lord's Day - and perdition of ungodly men.

    But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one Day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one Day.

    The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

    But the Day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

    Seeing then that all these things shall be DISSOLVED, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

    Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the Day of God, wherein the heavens being on FIRE shall be DISSOLVED, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

    Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for NEW heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

    Find a credible source then I would be interested. In fact make it several credible sources.

    Snelling is a young earth creationist.

    One of the problems that old earth people have is a bias against the evidence of a very violent flood.

    If Snelling wrote an article for business reasons about ore deposits in Australia and referenced the geologic column that does not mean that the geologic column is of any scientific value.

    Furthermore, there is no doubt about Snelling's faithfulness to young earth creation and there is no doubt about his abilities as a field geologist. He is a good guy.
