Please note the close similarities between Revelation 9:1-2 and the Alvarezes' theory, which supports God's first tohuw and bohuw judgement in Genesis 1:2. In particular, note the similarity of an asteroid impacting the earth's surface and causing the sun and the air to be darkened as a result of debris and smoke being hurled into the atmosphere.
We are not geologists. However, as Bible believers in the Pre-Adamic Age, we can see that earth's geology overwhelmingly supports God's global judgement against Lucifer's world. It was massively cataclysmic with such upheavals that even the seabeds were raised to form sedimentary fold mountains like the Himalayas. Also, these upheavals caused the formation of other impressive geological features such as the huge and deep Grand Canyon. In addition, earth's strata folded, trapping dense forests, which resulted in vast deposits and reservoirs of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas. Earth's rocks contain millions of fossils of sea and land animals. These include some amazingly huge animal fossils, like woolly mammoths and dinosaurs, which must have roamed the Pre-Adamic world. Many scientists believe that these animals suffered a sudden and abrupt extinction, many millions of years ago. It is highly significant that no human fossils have been found alongside dinosaurs, woolly mammoths or other animal fossils. This does not surprise us, as it upholds the biblical truth that God did not create human beings in the Pre-Adamic Age. It is clear from Genesis 1:2 that God's global judgement against Lucifer's world resulted in an Ice Age, which is abundantly supported by earth's geology.
Although Noah's world suffered God's judgement of a global flood, very little geological evidence of it survives today. This is because Noah's world did not suffer a global tohuw and bohuw judgement, as experienced by Lucifer's world. In God's judgement of Noah's world, the powers of the heavens were not shaken, and there were no cataclysmic upheavals of the earth's surface such that mountains were formed. Also, there was no withdrawal or darkening of the sun to cause global freezing. In order to form fossils, living organisms need to be buried quickly between two layers of rocks and/or quickly frozen before the natural process of decay can take place. Geologists have failed to discover fossils in any vast number, which they consider to be only a few thousand years old. The fact that no human fossils have been found in any number anywhere on earth proves that Noah's world did not suffer a global tohuw and bohuw judgement.
In describing Noah's flood, when the Bible says in Genesis 7:11, 'On that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken', it does not mean that great earthquakes and volcanic activities occurred. However, there has to have been a great release of subterranean water (the great deep) which, together with the rain, caused the whole earth to be flooded. We must not forget that God needed to protect Noah, his family and all the animals in the Ark. It is therefore clear that it was not the judgement against Noah's world, but the judgement against Lucifer's world that caused massive cataclysmic upheavals of the earth's surface, which have shaped earth's geology to bear witness for all of us to see today.
Young Earth Creationism uses Noah's Flood as a catchall solution to explain all of earth's geology. In order to fit with Noah's Flood, Young Earth Creationism must massage, manipulate and assume scientific data to explain many of earth's geological features, such as sedimentary and volcanic mountains, fossil fuels, dinosaurs, the Ice Age and millions of animal fossils like woolly mammoths found in ice. Also, it has no valid explanation for the lack of human fossils in the geological record.
High hills and mountains already existed before Noah's Flood, as the Bible clearly tells us. Noah must have used tons of pitch to cover and seal the incredibly huge Ark and, as pitch is derived from coal and oil, this proves that fossil fuels preceded Noah's Flood and that they are the products of God's judgement in the Pre-Adamic Age. Young Earth Creationism tries to unconvincingly explain the Ice Age as a post Noah's Flood event, yet the Bible clearly speaks about an Ice Age in the second verse of the Bible. Where Young Earth Creationism really comes unstuck is when we consider star distances. It is forced to admit that it has no answer to the fact that star distances undoubtedly prove that the earth is millions of years old.
