THE SEA is NOT SALTY (sodium) ENOUGH ........

450 million tons of sodium , from rivers and other sources , are dumped into the Ocean annually . 1 , 2 For all this sodium dumped into the Ocean only 27 % escapes back out of the Ocean each year 2 , 3 The consensus is that the remainder accumulates in the Ocean with...
nowhere else to go . If we start with zero sodium in the Ocean to begin with , then the present amount would have taken 42 million years to accumulate at the present input and output rates . 3 But the problem with this for the evolutionary age of the Ocean , is that it is supposed to be 3 billion years old . Clearly there is a huge discrepancy here , so the evolutionary answer is to go against there Uniformitarian ( Physical processes have been happening at the same rates for eons of time hypothesis ) belief and claim that the past sodium inputs must have been less and the outputs greater . But again , calculations which are very generous towards the evolutionary claims and scenarios can only give a maximum age of some 62 million years . 3 Clearly there is something wrong with the evolutionary timeframe of billions of years . The evidence fits a lot better within a creationist framework which states the ocean is only thousands of years old and the Global flood of Genesis 6-9 would have been responsible for a huge amount of sodium getting into the ocean with the remainder being added over the past four and a half thousand years .
GENESIS 6:17 For behold, I will bring a flood of waters upon the earth to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life under heaven. Everything that is on the earth shall die.
