Diamonds and a Billions of Years Old Earth


This picture is taken from

Beautiful diamonds are primarily comprised of pure carbon, which, acccording to current research, includes some radiocarbon. However, since radiocarbon should have decayed in less than a million years, diamonds, rather than supporting an old earth, are consistent with a recent creation of the earth. Dr. Jonathan Sarfati, author of numerous articles and books supporting young earth creationism, has written a brief but insightful article, “Diamonds: A Creationist’s Best Friend,” Creation 28 (September-November 2006): 26–27. His thesis is that the radiocarbon “age” of diamonds is far less than an earth of a million years. The article was made available yesterday for the internet by Creation Ministries International, at Creation on the Web.
