Haleakalā National Park and the Young Earth

The fiftieth state of those formerly United is Hawai'i, an archipelago in the Pacific ocean. The Big Island is the state's namesake, but it is less populous than the smaller islands like Oahu and Maui. We have another national park adventure, this time to Mele Kalikimaka —

"No, Cowboy Bob, that is a Christmas song!"

Oh, right. If you want to know why Merry Christmas is pronounced that way, see this video. Anyway. seeing my notes and the title, we are checking out Haleakalā National Park over on Maui.

The dormant Haleakalā and other volcanoes are used to falsely claim Earth is millions of years old. We really see evidence for recent creation.

We discussed volcanic eruptions in Iceland and the Philippines a spell back, so this time we'll ignore the six active volcanoes in Hawai'i (four of which are on the Big Island) and consider Mt. Haleakalā. Nice and dormant, so rude surprises from it are unlikely.

Like other national parks, the propaganda mill is promoting millions of years. How do they cognate to that? This child thinks secularists are willingly deceptive, because they use circular reasoning and the fallacy of exclusion (or suppressed evidence) — and are smart enough to know it.

There are reasons that the secular narrative of deep time does not hold true, and we have seen many times that numerous evidences for recent creation (especially the relevance of the Genesis Flood to geology) are rejected outright. (Papa Darwin's gotta have those millions of years, you know, and secularists are going to make them happen.) Deep time claims are justified by observing Hawaiian stick spiders which are themselves evidence against evolution, fundamentally flawed radioisotope tests, and landforms that cannot be millions of years indicate recent creation. They also indicate volcanism and the Genesis Flood.
You can start the day atop the cold peak of Mt. Haleakala and end it on a warm beach on Maui. The sprawling volcanic mountain rises 10,000 feet above sea level. Nēnē birds, cattle, horses, and people populate its slopes and summits. When did Haleakala form?

Maui formed after Oahu and before the Big Island. Hawaiian schoolchildren memorize the standard age assignments. From west to east, Kauai formed supposedly about five million years ago, Oahu three million, Maui Nui one million, and the Big Island 0.4 million. The Big Island is still forming today. But three unique observations in and around this national park make Haleakala look only thousands of years old, not millions.
