"Not By Chance: Shattering the Modern Theory of Evolution" by Dr. Lee
Spenter shows life did not evolve over a long period of time. Recent
articles in US News & World Report (June 16,1997, pg 55) shows how
geophysically the earth could be 5757 years old and rapid currents from the
flood formed the grand canyon etc. NYT Science section, (date?) mentioned
one of Einsteins theories that the rate of time could be altered by
adjusting pressure, and I think it is common sense that this could be a way
to spread out the heavens in a short period of time - thus Hashem could have
spread out the Heavens in an instant.In fact matter could implode and the
physical dimensions as we know them return to emptiness should Hashem allow
the pressure to go to high or low. Almost all information going out to the
public in western civilzation is based on assumptions that is only supported
by findings also based on those assumptions.

The latest molecular knowledge and scientific advances all point to one
creator of this very well designed universe. There has never been one bit of
evidence that contradicts the Torah taken in context. If you look at all the
evidence based on this assumption it all will make sense.
