Such folding can be seen world-wide and is consistent with a young age of the earth. I recently found out about this site/tomb they are digging up in between SYRIA and TURKEY that's "supposed" to re-write our history books. If those who support the creation ideas feel that they have a better understanding of how oil and gas form, then they should form a company to look for such commodities using their ideas. So far as I know, there is no law that restricts oil and gas exploration to those who believe in evolution. in finding oil and gas: see what geologist Dr John Morris said.Along the mid-ocean ridges, the detailed pattern of magnetic polarisation, with islands of differing polarity, speaks of rapid changes in direction of Earth’s magnetic field because of the rate of cooling of the lava. Evolution is supported and endorsed by governments, the media, our major educational institutions and many big businesses. Go ahead and form a company that includes in its charter a statement that money raised will be used to apply creatist principles to oil and gas exploration. As Dr Morris recounts, he attempted to do something similar to what you suggest.Ages of millions of years are all calculated by assuming the rates of change of processes in the past were the same as we observe today—called the principle of uniformitarianism.
If the calculated result gives an acceptable age, the investigators publish it.
Examples of ages listed here are also obtained by applying the same principle of uniformitarianism.

In the end we believe that the Bible will stand vindicated and those who deny its testimony will be confounded. Thank you guys for putting so much work into this site! Regarding Göbekli Tepe, always check using the search engine.
The Bible claims to be the communication of the only One who witnessed the events of Creation: the Creator himself.
As such, the Bible is the only reliable means of knowing the age of the earth and the cosmos.
But look at this site and see how much can be achieved with a little effort from God's people in supporting such outreach. Going through high school my science teacher tried telling me that we were once rats living in bushes! but where they got me was with how old the earth is. However, when an idea is entrenched to the point that nearly everyone accepts it without even a moment's thought that it might be entirely wrong, then you have little chance of getting any alternative proposal accepted, even a modest one.
Support this site I spent an hour or more reading through this with my wife. Up until 6 years ago when i met my wife, I just naturaly thought the earth was millions of yrs old. And it would take an amount of money to float a new company to do oil exploration using a creationist approach to geology, money that I would think most Christians would be better spent elsewhere.
Evidence of very recent or even present formation of oil is consistent with a young earth.
Coal is a powerful evidence for Noah's Flood; the evolutionary story of it forming from material laid down in peat bog swamps over eons of time just does not stack up.
Many of these indicators for younger ages were discovered when creationist scientists started researching things that were supposed to ‘prove’ long ages.
