’48 Plymouth: How Old is Old?

2948 Plymouth

Once upon a time–when the times in which one lived appeared to be simpler–there was a solid house, located in a rural setting beside a country road.

Connecting the road to the house was a dirt driveway.

And on that driveway was parked a 1948 Plymouth.

Children played on and around that car–which at the time was only 12-13 years old–even though the car was surrounded by a healthy growth of weeds.

In the children’s minds, the car was a relic from an ancient time.  It was whispered that the Plymouth was driven by the mother before she got married.  After she was married, the young family–so different in those days–did not need two cars.  And so, when it next needed major repairs, it was parked on the dirt driveway, where the children later played.

In the minds of the children, the car was ancient: 1948 was a year they were NOT familiar with.  As the oldest of the children was five years old, there were not even any child who was as old as this 1948 Plymouth.  None of the children had ANY memories of the ’48 Plymouth other than it was parked beside the dirt driveway surrounded by weeds.

Perhaps that is why the car (which was only seven or eight years older than the oldest child) was considered to be so ancient?  The children even referred to the Plymouth as “the old car.”

As the children grew older, the car became even older and more ancient in their minds.


This was all recently brought to mind while scanning the news stories of the latest scientific finds which claim discoveries/relics/fossils/bones/etc. which are “millions” and even “billions” of years old.

As has been pointed out more than once

Think about it.

We have artifacts which are man-made inside rocks and coal.  Plenty of these exist.

And what does ‘science’ say?

300 million years old!  Rocks 500 million years old!

It throws these figures around like it knows what it is talking about–which it does not.  These man-made artifacts point to two situations.  1- The Bible is correct and has the answers to these man-created “mysteries;” and, 2- Science obviously can’t date its way out of a wet paper bag.

What makes this all very interesting is the total changing of the scientific stories concerning discoveries/relics/fossils/bones/etc.

As a former science teacher once put it, “What used to be taught as ‘300,000-500,000 years old’” is now taught to be “millions of years old.

ONCE, it was considered proper to tell stories of “old” discoveries which were HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF YEARS OLD.

NOW, it is considered proper to tell those stories of “old” discoveries which are now said to be MILLIONS OF YEARS OLD.

And, like most other end times deceptions,  those who put the MOST faith in “(radio)carbon dating” techniques are usually those who know the LEAST about such scams.

So, the next time the reader sees a story claiming that science has found some new discovery/relic/fossil/bones/etc. which is “millions” of years old, it would be wise to remember that “ancient” 1948 Plymouth.

Many things which are thought to be “ancient” are not so old after all.

DOES the reader believe the Word of God OR does the reader believe the stories told by scientists?

WHEN science and the Bible disagree–as happens more and more often–who does the reader THEN believe?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
