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 [...]
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 [...]
In December 2010, Peter Scheele from the Netherlands published an excellent paper in Journal of Creation on the carving of the Grand Canyon. It’s now available at creation.com (also as pdf).
Scheele shows in graphic detail that the Grand Canyon was formed while the waters of Noah’s Flood receded from the American continent, when they [...]
My colleague Robert Carter recently sent me a link to a video that documents the draining of the hundred-year-old Condit Dam on the White Salmon River in Washington State in the Pacific NW.
About the event, the commentary on the video says: “On October 26th , a hole was blasted in the base of 125′ tall [...]
Here’s another image from JS, this one showing the effects of Noah’s Flood cutting water gaps in the Susquenhanna River Basin, Pennsylvania, USA, very late in the Retreating stage.
“Since you mentioned Ken Karle’s article [free pdf], I thought I’d send this SLR picture at 180m asl (red), 240m asl (orange) and 320m asl (yellow) of [...]
JS has sent another image illustrating the effects of receding floodwaters in the western USA.
“In response to Berend de Boer’s comment, attached is another example of what can be done with Sea Level Rise. This is an image of the western US at 1650m asl (red), 1850m asl (orange) and 2100m asl (yellow).
“As you [...]
