Titan, Saturn's Moon and Its Youth
Titan is Saturn's largest moon and features evidence of youth within the creation model. Titan is also the second-largest planetary satellite in the solar system (after Ganymede and is slightly larger than Mercury and the Earth's moon), and the only planetary body other than Earth to have bodies of liquid on its surface for any length of time. Liquid hydrocarbon seas have been discovered on Titan containing more hydrocarbons than the entire Earth. The Dutch astronomer Christiaan Huygens first discovered Titan on March 25, 1655. Titan also one of the few celestial bodies to have a dense atmosphere like Earth. Titan has evidence of a young age by examining its atmosphere, which contains large concentrations of methane gas. Creationists have noted that the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation would break down the methane in the atmosphere within 10,000 years into other chemicals such as ethane and the hydrogen in the methane would escape. The fact that the methane is still there in the clouds implies the youth of Titan within the 6,000-year creationist time frame. In a four and a half billion year evolutionist time frame, there should be no methane left in the atmosphere. Evolutionists have not found a source that would replenish methane on Titan for billions of years and therefore cannot explain why methane is still in the atmosphere in significant quantities for the supposed long time period of four billion-plus years.
