When Geology becomes an exact science, when geologists can look at the
earth and say with certainty this volcano is going to erupt this day at
this hour with this much force. This piece of land is going to shake with
this much intensity. You can find x millions of gallons of oil in this
exact point and be true everytime, then I'll believe their claims to
billions of years for this or that to happened.

When Evolution becomes a law and not just a theory filled with gaps and
situations that are more the product of 'creative science' than scientific

Then you'll can say YEC/Noah and many more events are false. In the
meantime, it becomes a matter of faith. Who or what do you believe more
because none of us was there to witnessed it and the results can't be
duplicated in the lab.
