Uniformitarian: Scoffers?

Let’s take a look at Charles Lyell’s theory of uniformitarianism: the idea that “the present is the key to the past” and that through a slow and methodical process, natural laws have always worked in the same way, resulting in the geological features we see around us.

Lyell’s theory was directly opposed to what has been labeled catastrophism, the idea that the earth was formed not over billions of years but by a series of sudden, short-lived events — such as a literal six-day creation or the flood in Noah’s day. The Bible warns us of those who reject the biblical account, calling them “scoffers.”

There shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

Based on 2 Peter, it is safe to say that uniformitarianists are nothing more than scoffers, out to destroy the foundation of our faith.

The heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
