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 [...]
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 [...]
I’ve been encouraged by a correspondent from South Africa who is familiar with its geology and seeking to understand how to apply the biblical geological model there.
Your blog is very interesting and informative.
Your articles about the South African geology are very good. I’ve never seen any part of African geology interpreted like that. [...]
The figure here shows an interpreted geological cross-section near Perth, Western Australia. It’s taken from the 1:250,000 scale geological map SH-50-14 publised in 1978 by the Geological Survey of Western Australia.
As I have mentioned before, I look at sections like these and interpret them using biblical history.
Section A-B is approximately 80 km long [...]
As I have previously mentioned, the Australian geological map series is most helpful for a first assessment of the effects of Noah’s Flood.
The geological section shown here is from the Wollongong 1:250,000 sheet (SI 56 09, second edition, New South Wales Department of Mines, Sydney, 1966). It cuts from the west to the east across [...]
I was working with the electricity industry in Mineral House, Brisbane, when I first developed the biblical geological model. The library of the Mines Department was just one floor below my office and I would regularly pore over their geological maps in my lunch hour.
The geological cross section for Goondiwindi (300 km west of [...]
When I started developing the geological model based on biblical history I wanted to apply it to some real geology to see how it worked. One helpful resource I found was the 1:250,000 scale geological maps prepared in the 1960s and 70s as part of a remarkable government program for mapping Australia. These maps are [...]
