High pressures in oil fields would have bled off if earth were old (Talk.Origins)
From CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science
- The high pressures found in oil and gas wells are proof of a young earth. If the earth were old, the pressures would have bled off by now.
Hovind, Kent, n.d. Universe is not "billions of years" old.
CreationWiki response: This claim is simply out of date. In science it is normal for some concepts to be proven wrong while others get better supporting evidence and are enhanced. The above link is bad and Kent Hovind seems to have removed the article from his web site, though he still has this reference in his presentations.
