Two things scoffers will deny in the last days

See also

The Genesis account gives us two accurate and truthful accounts (The Creation and Noah's worldwide Flood) that will be denied by scoffers in the last days of the Church age. "Knowing this first, that 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. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water : Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water perished" (2 Peter 3:3-6)(KJV),

Many scoffers in these last days of the Church age call the Book of Genesis a myth or fable. They believe the universe and the earth were produced by chance out of chaos through a evolutionary process that took billions of years to complete. In Colossians 2:8 the Scripture warns, "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ."

Scoffers believe in uniformitarianism, which is the belief that all natural forces that redistribute sediment / dirt have done so at a constant rate since the very beginning of the planet. A few notables like James Hutton and Jean Lamarck, in the years 1795 and 1809 respectively, started to advance this idea of a very old Earth, but Charles Lyell (November 14, 1797 - February 22, 1875) was a central figure in the long-term establishment of the idea. He was a British geologist who wrote the very influential 'Principles of Geology'. It was first published in three volumes from 1830 to 1833.

Charles Darwin, who was closely connected with Lyell, was heavily influenced by uniformitarianism and he bit fully into Lyell's proposals. Consequently, the vast ages being ascribed to the planet at this time caused the deflection of many from the Biblical account of creation.

These scoffers are "willingly ignorant of" the worldwide Flood in Noah's day. This rejection of truth, so that God can be ignored, can only be summed up by Psalm 14:1. People who deny the existence of God are completely and utterly confounded by original sin, which confuses, dismays, and discombobulates the mind of man with stunning efficacy and leaves people throttled by ignorance. However, such willful ignorance is no longer afforded to anyone.
