Sediment In The Oceans Says The Earth Is Young
How old is the earth? Billions of years or just thousands of years?
Where is all the sediment? Wind and water erode about 20 billion tons of sediment into the oceans every year. The average thickness of the sediment in the oceans is 1300 feet. That much would accumulate in just 12 million years. That's the maximum age of the earth based on ocean sediment. A few million years not billions of years.
And 12 million years is just the upper limit for the time to accumulate 1300 feet of sediment. It is based on the assumption that the erosion rate has always been the same as today. If we take Noah's flood and the sediment that would result from the flood into account, the amount of sediment we see in the oceans today is consistent with a 6,000 year age for the earth. On the other hand, if the earth is billions of years old, there should be a lot more sediment on the ocean floor. A LOT!
In addition, mountains should not exist. The continents are estimated to be 2.5 billion years old. At the current rate of erosion and uplift (landmass being added), a thickness of 93 MILES of continent would have eroded in 2.5 billion years. It has been calculated that the North American continent should have been eroded down to sea level in ten million years. So the question isn't just, "Where is all the sediment?" An even bigger question is, "Why are the continents still here?"

OF JESUS CHRIST
The gospel is not social justice nor serving others. The gospel is love in action... Jesus Christ giving Himself so that you can be saved from the wrath of God.
Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.
For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.
After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep; then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles; and last of all, as to one untimely born, He appeared to me also. - 1 Corinthians 15:1-8
