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 [...]
Here are some raised sea-level maps of the Sydney area that show very interesting features connected with the receding waters of Noah’s Flood.
First image: The 80m level is the level at which the scarp west of Sydney pops out. It seems that 80m is globally significant in many places. Near Perth it also [...]
Keen students from a Sydney High school examine Ashfield Shale in a road cut in the Blue Mountains north-west of Sydney. It’s an excellent outcrop in a quiet street that can be researched at leisure.
The Ashfield Shale directly overlies the Hawkesbury Sandstone which is prominent in the coastal cliffs and freeway cuttings in the Sydney [...]

I’ve posted an image here showing the location of the [...]
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 [...]

Everyone had a great time last Saturday on the Illawarra geological field trip organized by Creation Ministries International. The weather was perfect and the enormous waves made the Blowhole at Kiama look like a fireworks display. It was also fantastic at the next headland, Bombo Point, which we visited in the afternoon. The people were [...]
