Q: What do bathtubs have to do with the age of the universe?
A: The bathtub is actually a wonderful way to show the difficulty in trying to age-date the universe using scientific methods.
Evolutionist Quote of the Week
“I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being. These teachers must embody the same selfless dedication as the most rabid fundamentalist preachers, for they will be ministers of another sort, utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to convey humanist values in whatever subject they teach, regardless of the educational level—preschool day care or large state university. The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and the new—the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism.”
– John Dunphy, A Religion for a New Age, The Humanist, January–February 1983, p. 26.
Imagine one day that you come home and find the bathtub half full of hot water, say 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Then you want to learn how long the water has been in the tub. There are many theories that you can explore.
First, the water came out of the tap nearly boiling hot and has been cooling for a long time.
Or secondly, the water was run at 150 degrees and has been cooling for less than an hour.
Or maybe the water has been in the tub for only about 5 minutes, because someone knew you were coming home.
Mathematically there’s no way that you can prove any one theory to be more accurate than the other. The only way to really know is to ask someone who was there when the water was run in the tub.
The same holds true for the age of the universe. The only way to know is to ask someone who was there. Since God was the only One there when the universe was created, we find our answers in God’s Word—and the universe is only thousands, not billions, of years old.
