I told you they were up to something!

Squirrels Give Age of Grand Canyon

Isaiah 44:24

Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, and He who formed you from the womb: 'I am the Lord, who makes all things, who stretches out the heavens all alone, who spreads abroad the earth by Myself.'

Who would have thought that squirrels would tell us how old the Grand Canyon is? Yet creation scientists tell us that the tassel-eared squirrel, who lives near the rim of the canyon in Arizona, has done just that.

Tassel-eared squirrels are found on both north and south rims of the canyon. Scientists have assumed that the squirrels were there before the canyon was formed, supposedly millions of years ago. However, since the canyon has kept the two populations apart for so long, the differences between them should show what millions of years of evolution will do to squirrels.

There are minor differences between the squirrels on the north rim and the south rim. But they're not even enough to classify the squirrels as separate species. North rim squirrels have white tails and black bellies. Squirrels on the south rim have white bellies and dark tails. But many north rim squirrels have coloration like those on the south, and many on the south rim are colored like those on the north. Creation scientist Dr. John Meyer has carefully studied these squirrels. He has concluded that the squirrels on the north and south rim are actually one population that has a complete range of fur colors.

According to a law of evolution accepted by evolutionists, there should be a much larger difference between the north and south squirrels if the Grand Canyon is really millions of years old. The conclusion must be, then, that the Grand Canyon is quite young - only thousands of years old.

silly person. It takes BILLIONS of years for evolution to work so the squirrels may have been in the process of going all patchwork quilt on us before we interrupted. I just watched the discovery channel at lunch today and Patrick Stewart clearly said that the earth is many billions of years old. Since he was the captain on Star Trek, I am going to believe him before I ever believe something I read on the internet!

*laughing really hard at first comment* That's awesome Marguerite! It's amazing what evolutionists just close their eyes to!
