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 [...]
Reader JS sent some Google-Earth images of the Cape Town area, prompted by reading an article on Yahoo! News entitled African Mountain Range Could be World’s Strongest.
The researchers calculated erosion rates for the mountains based on measuring radioactive isotopes of beryllium. They calculated an unbelievably slow rate of erosion for the Table Mountain area, [...]
At the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve near Maleny, Queensland, the spectacular Glass House Mountains draw your gaze like a magnet. Photographs do not do them justice. You could spend hours soaking in the view as the clouds and shadows continually change during the day.
In this photo the scene is hazy because the atmosphere [...]
My friend Mike Oard and his family produced an excellent book on geology for children called Exploring Geology with Mr Hibb. It’s wonderfully illustrated in full-color and explains geology in a simple way for young enthusiasts.
Chapters discuss how rocks formed, and the way the biblical Flood produced sedimentary rocks containing fossils. It describes how [...]
Don Prothero, selected as the ‘geological expert’ for Andrew Maxwell’s BBC Conspiracy Road Trip, played a little trick on the creationist team with a two-gallon ‘simulation’ of Noah’s Flood (beginning at about 8:44 on the video).
He says on his blog, “… this demonstration was very effective, and caught the smug Phil and others completely [...]
The BBC Conspiracy Road Trip hosted by comedian Andrew Maxwell took five creationists to Grand Canyon as part of his examination of creationism. Maxwell had teed up geology Professor Don Prothero to meet the team, as the “expert” who had been working at the Canyon for 35 years.
Prothero began his talk with the classic, self-serving [...]
The comedian Andrew Maxwell took five British creationists to the USA on his Conspiracy Road Trip where they dealt with the topic of creationism. One of the dramatic sites they visited was Grand Canyon, and they began with a panoramic flight over the icon.
On the ground an exchange began while the team were looking [...]
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. [...]
