Response Article
This article (Natural gas escapes too fast to allow for long ages (Talk.Origins)) is a response to a rebuttal of a creationist claim published by Talk.Origins Archive under the title Index to Creationist Claims.

Claim CD230:

Natural gas appears underground often under great pressures. If the earth were old, the gas would have seeped out and the reservoirs would have emptied.

Source: Pathlights, n.d. The age of the earth - 2.

CreationWiki response: This claim is simply out of date. In science it is normal for some concepts to be proven wrong while others get better supporting evidence and are enhanced. The cited source is not a particularly good creationist web site, in that they do not seem to be particularly good at keeping their material up to date.
