 II Peter 3:3-6

One interesting thing about the Bible is how accurately it has predicted future events. The more detailed the prophecy the more amazing it is. As it turns out II Peter 3:3-6 not only predicts that one day men will scoff at the Bible, but it also predict their basic reasoning in such detail that it is amazing.

II Peter 3
3. Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
4. 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.
5. 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:
6. Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

The key phrase is "all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation." This is a perfectly good 1st century Greek description of uniformitarianism. So II Peter 3:3-6  is predicting uniformitarianism. Further more verse 5 says that because of this concept men will be willingly ignorant of both creation and the Flood. The Greek word "lanqanei" which is translated as ignorant in verse 5 literally means: "to escape the knowledge or observation of a person." This makes it clear that this is a reference to uniformitarianism. Because of uniformitarian geology both creation and the Flood escape the knowledge and observation of many people. They are literally willingly ignorant of both events because of uniformitarian geology.
