Evolution, Ignorance, Geology and Everything

Secular scientists have a great deal to say about life, the universe and everything. But do they really know all that they pretend to know? Not really. Evolutionary pronouncements are ever-changing piles of speculations that are often riddled with bad science and even fraud, but fundamentalist evolutionists cling to their faith despite the evidence, not because of it. They do not want to admit that there is a Creator because that would mean that we should learn what he has to say.

Once in a while, an evolutionist admits that their views are loaded with difficulties. Of course, the faithful scream, "Quote mining!", but such charges are usually spurious. Especially when there are several in one article.
There’s not much data, and there’s a lot of doubt and debate. That’s what a geologist admits about theories of early earth history.
In "The Conversation", Craig O’Neill says “Keep a lid on it.” On what? “The controversy over Earth’s oldest rocks.” It’s not that O’Neill, a lecturer in geodynamics at Macquarie University disbelieves in the standard picture of a slowly evolving earth billions of years ago. It’s just that he’s painfully aware of the difficulty of teasing out a picture from the meager and often contradictory evidence from which they draw their conclusions.
The “lid” is a reference to one controversy – whether the early earth had a stable crust instead of plate tectonics from the beginning. That particular debate masks a more general issue: how do geologists know what they claim to know? Consider O’Neill’s admissions:
