Response Article
This article (Volcanic mountains are built 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 CD502:

Volcanoes are adding material to the crust too rapidly for an earth as old as is claimed. At present rates, volcanoes could have formed the entire crust in 500 million years.

CreationWiki response:

This is an out of date claim, from an out of date source. As such Talk Origins is basically correct on this point.
