Polonium Halos: God's Fingerprints in Nature
Every so often a fact from nature becomes known that is so amazing in
its support for Creation that the denial of it shows the absolute blind
faith of evolutionists in their religion of evolution.
Polonium is one of the 92 natural elements that exist on earth. Polonium halos are radioactive marks in granite that show that the earth was created instantly. They are made when the Polonium isotope decays and shoots bits of itself into the surrounding granite leaving a mark. There are lots of different elements that naturally decay, but what is remarkable about this particular isotope is that its half-life is only 3 minutes. This means that half of the Polonium is decayed away in only three minutes and all of it would be gone in an hour. Unlike other isotopes that are the result of a continuous process of decay, these Polonium halos are "orphans", they are not the product of any other radioactive decay. They simply appear in the granite. This proves that the granite the marks are encased in had to be solid rock at the time the marks were made in order to retain these perfectly preserved radioactive marks that have existed in them from the very beginning.
If, as evolutionists claim, the earth was in a liquid, molten state for millions of years in the beginning, than theses Polonium halos would have simply disappeared long ago. That the halos exist in granite all over the world shows that these granites were made instantly by God in the beginning.
The findings about Polonium halos were not challenged by evolutionists until the balanced treatment trial in Arkansas in 1981 when the facts about the halos were presented in court as evidence supporting Creation. There it was described by an evolutionist as a "tiny mystery" of nature, but it is much more than that. For the existence of the Polonium halos is proof of instantaneous creation.
The physicist who has done the most research on the structure and meaning of these halos is Robert Gentry of Oak Ridge, Tennessee. For thirteen years he was a contract physicist at Oak Ridge National Laboratories. His research established the facts about Polonium halos and his findings were published in numerous scientific journals, but when he testified in the Arkansas trial he was fired from his position at the Lab. He then published a book on the halos called Creation's Tiny Mystery. While evolutionists will deny Polonium halos significance as evidence of earth's instantaneous creation, they cannot refute the facts.
The existence of Polonium halos illustrate two things; one is how the facts from nature testify to the reality of creation and two is the irrational refusal of evolutionists to examine facts that contradict their religion of evolution.
Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
