Today, I was reading Truth Matters, an out-of-print collection of some of John MacArthur’s best writings from 1969 to 2004.  One interesting chapter dealt with the doctrine of Creation, including the age of the earth, and why he believes that the old-earth model is wrong, both scientifically and theologically.  Even more interestingly, he quotes a bible passage that appears to condemn/refute Uniformitarianism (2 Peter 3:3-5):

First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They
will say, "Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our fathers
died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation."

they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens
existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water.
[Special Creation]

By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. [Noahic flood]

the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire,
being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. [Future judgement]
