Zircon Crystals and Rethinking Early Earth Life

The more things change — the more things change. A heap of evolutionary icons are being overthrown, often by evolutionists' own science. (Sorta like being shot with your own gun.) There are numerous challenges to the age of the solar system and the universe (especially with discoveries regarding Pluto), Lenski's bacteria experiments prove that a virus can stay pretty much the same, endosymbiosis needs a re-think and some actual evidence, water on primordial Earth is being reexamined, Lucy was an extinct ape that walked on its knuckles, and more. It's a good time to be a biblical creationist!

Another evolutionary re-think in progress. Carbon in zircon crystals moves evolutionary time way, way back.

But wait, there's another bronc bucking in the corral at the Darwin Ranch! Zircon crystals are showing traces of carbon. Darwinists are assuming that the carbon came from ancient life forms, and commence to using assumptions and circular reasoning (especially the dreadful radiometric dating stuff). Guess that means "carbon footprints", huh? Time to rewrite the science textbooks yet again. Instead of propping up Darwin's failed hypothesis, scientists should see that the evidences does not support evolution, but rather, shows that God created life, the universe, and everything recently.
Zircon crystals—little time capsules preserving bits of Earth’s ancient past—have in our recent past given evolutionary scientists a whole new view of conditions on the early Earth. Previously thought to have been a Hadean hell of molten magma for a very long time, the early Earth is now seen in the light of zircon-trapped atoms as a place that cooled enough for water to condense within 160 million years of being spit out of a solar nebula and coalescing as a fiery ball. Now the discovery of flecks of graphite in an Australian zircon crystal has raised the possibility that life evolved very quickly in that ancient world, 300 million years earlier than previously thought.
