Granite is currently known to only exist on earth where it is a major part of the continental crust. No one knows exactly how Granite Rock forms. Granite forming under natural conditions as other rocks form is almost impossible. Once Granite rock is melted, it is no longer considered Granite. This is because the composition that makes up granite rock breaks down so when it cools to become rock again, it’s no longer what it was to begin with. Granite Rock is hypothesized as a transition from metamorphic rock under extreme conditions.
Granite Rock comes in many different colors as shown above. The large quantities that exists in the continental crust is a source for much debate since it does not easily form. And no one knows the exact mechanism that would make it on this planet in such huge quantities that currently exist. There is a very little field evidence for any proposed mechanisms, so hypotheses are predominantly based upon experimental data (data not confirmed or empirical). And because there is such a huge amount of the granite rock on this planet, it is considered the foundation of every existing continent. And in God’s word, the foundations of the earth are referred to several times.
How were the foundation (Granite) made? In the Bible it says they were created:
job 38:4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
ps 102:25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.
ps 104:5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.
Being created separate from normal creation would mean that the foundations (Granite) could not form naturally, therefore would pose a problem when man would try to duplicate the process synthetically. Which is what we see.
The Bible refers to this foundation (Granite) being moved during earthquake events.
ps 18:7 Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.
There is even a reference to the foundations (Granite) of the earth being out of time.
ps 82:5 They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
Out of course is being out of time. Example: When you take a course of study, the course is actually a reference to how much time is required to complete the study. So what does this mean about the foundations of the earth? It means that the time (age) of the foundations of the earth will not line up with the Biblical time-line of everything being around 6,000 years old. So basically the Bible is admitting that the two will not line up because it was created that way.
Being created separately would also mean that they were created in an instant. This instant could catch other processes that would only have a very short half-life. Polonium halos with a half life of less than 3 minutes and are embedded in “all” granite rock. There were two types found as shown in the below picture. How do you get Polonium Halos, with a half life less than 3 minute, in granite rock that took millions of years to cool and form?
Here are what the halos look like (under a microscope):
Dr. Gentry looking through his microscope at the evidence. He is a creation scientist that brought this evidence to light. It was rejected because it did not conform to supported old earth and evolution. But instead it supports creation.
