Diamonds Aren't So Old After All

Secular geologists will tell you that diamonds are several hundred millions years old, or more. However, there are certain facets of science that are conveniently ignored., showing that diamonds are nowhere near as old as believed. One of the main reasons for this is an a priori commitment to "deep time", since Darwinian evolution beliefs require huge amounts of time.

Diamonds form under intense heat and pressure under the earth's surface, and are one of the hardest materials (the Mohs scale of hardness gives it a 10). However, like opals, they can also be made by man. "Synthetic" diamonds have that qualifier because, although they're made of carbon like natural ones, the process itself is not from nature. (Also, don't confuse synthetic diamonds with cubic zirconia, that critter is chemically different but looks like a diamond.) The fact that they can be home grown shows that it's conditions, not time, that are the key.

Other details that rile believers in uniformitarianism is that burnable (unpermineralized) wood has been found in diamond-bearing rock — and in more than one location. Further, there's the carbon-14 problem: it's not supposed to exist in diamonds, but hey, there it is. This is evidence that diamonds, and the earth itself, are nowhere near as old as some people want us to believe.
Jewellers sometimes tell awe-struck customers that diamonds have been sitting undisturbed in the ground for hundreds of millions of years, since before the time of the dinosaurs, just waiting to add sparkle to rings, necklaces and broaches. The British Jewellers’ Association says that all natural diamonds have existed for at least 900 million years, with the oldest specimens being 3.2 billion years old!

These are extraordinary claims, but scientific facts indicate a different reality. It is interesting to consider the compelling evidence that all natural diamonds are actually far younger.
Diamonds are hard, but the rest of this article is not so hard. (See what I did there? Fallacy of equivocation to make a funny.) To finish reading, click on "Diamonds—Are they really all that old?
