An alarming headline on Science News reads, “Ice-Free Arctic May Be in Our Future, International Researchers Say“. This report provides a classic example of how researchers’ flawed understanding of earth’s geological history leads them to to seriously wrong conclusions. Their conclusions actually fly in the face of the evidence they report, and in this [...]
Jordon T seemed surprised by the ideas he encountered on this site, and emailed some questions. Most of his problems will be resolved as reads more about it. Here are his questions:
How would the water from the “flood” erode sedimentary rocks quicker? Especially when such a flood would result in mass deposition of sediment such [...]
In response to my two recent posts, reader JS sent two Google-Earth images that provide further evidence the Appalachians were eroded by the receding waters of Noah’s Flood. My first post presented a reinterpretation of a paper published in GSA Today (a publication of the Geological Society of America) which examined the Cullasaja basin in [...]
Sean Gallen, lead author of the GSA Today paper about the uplift of the Appalachians, which I connected with Noah’s Flood has responded with the following comment. My response is interspersed.
I am the first author on the article “Miocene rejuvenation of topographic relief in the southern Appalachians”. While my coauthors and I appreciate Tas’ interest [...]
An interesting article, published in GSA Today (a publication by the Geological Society of America) in February 2013, describes features of the landscape of the Appalachian Mountains. These are a system of mountain ranges in eastern North America, extending from around Atlanta, Georgia, north past New York, and into Canada (see figure left). The paper [...]
The Bible tells us that the whole world was covered by water at the time of Noah’s Flood. It took five months for the waters to rise and cover “all the high hills under the whole heaven” (Genesis 7:19), and a further seven months for the water to recede until the land was dry (Genesis [...]
Here’s an email question I received today from GC asking for help about the geology of an area north of Sydney, Australia.
I’m wondering if you know of any Christian geologists, specifically in NSW, that may be interested in helping me with information about a geological formation at Mooral Creek, north of Wingham, that the locals [...]
I’ve been working on a geological guidebook for Phillip Island, Victoria’s holiday destination just a couple of hours from Melbourne. This excursion guide describes 19 sites on Phillip Island and the nearby mainland. It explains the geological features, describes the points of interest, and wraps up with the significance of the site.
Also included in [...]
A friend who lives near Laidley west of Brisbane wrote asking me for information about his property.
We have this ridge of sandstone cliffs down the middle of the block, just over one thousand feet above sea level. We often have groups of young people from our church out on Bar B Ques. I would [...]
The geology around Perth is quite different from the eastern states in that there is little variety in the types of rocks exposed. All the same there are some very interesting and special features to observe.
The oldest rocks in the Perth area are exposed in quarries in the Darling Range to the east. [...]
