This article (Juvenile water is added to oceans too fast for an old earth (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 CD222:

Juvenile water, the water added to oceans through volcanoes, hot springs, and other vents, is added at such a rate that the oceans could not be more than 320 million years old to be as full as they are now.

CreationWiki response:

This claim is simply out of date.[Reference needed] It is from a 30+ year old source. In science it is normal for some concepts to be proven wrong while others get better supporting evidence and are enhanced.
