Under Pressure

Pressure is an interesting phenomenon. Looking at the numbers, it tends to find the weakness in the enclosing structure and exploit it. Take, for instance, the buried oil in the Earth's crust.

We recently saw the effects of the pressure when BP's oil rig lost containment on the pressurized oil field in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Louisiana. The oil pumped and pumped and was only stopped after months of man-made intervention.

The current paradigm's scientism voice preaches that these oil reserves are 60 million years old or more. Is it feasible to expect all of these ultra-high pressure oil fields to have remained under this intense pressure that entire time?

It sounds unreasonable to me too, and along with the many other evidences that dispute long ages, I would agree with the Bible that the Earth is about 6000 years old.
