Review by Greg Neyman

In an article on the Creation, Dinosaurs and the Flood website, young earth creation science advocate Charlie Liebert posted an essay that discusses a possible worldwide flood on Mars.1
In this essay, he claims that NASA has proposed that a worldwide flood happened on Mars, which caused the many canyons found there.
I did a search for this on the internet, and the only place I could find this was on young earth websites. I read several NASA releases, and none mention a global flood.
Articles I read mentioned evidence of great lakes which fed canyons, but nothing of the entire planet being covered in water. Without Liebert listing his sources, it is impossible to verify this claim.
In closing, Liebert says " Good science always looks at ALL possibilities before coming to conclusions." However, young earth creation science does not follow this principle. They read the Bible, interpret it to be a young earth, and then examine the rocks and cram it into their young earth biased conclusion. They have already came to a conclusion before examining the evidence, which is contrary to Liebert's statement.

If you are not a Christian, and you have been holding out on making a decision for Christ because the Church always preached a message that was contrary to what you saw in the scientific world, then rest assured that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, and you can believe in Christ and receive salvation, while still believing in an old earth.
