The radioisotope methods—long touted as irrefutably dating the earth as countless millions of years old—have repeatedly failed to give reliable and meaningful absolute ages for Grand Canyon rocks.
In the walls of the Grand Canyon, we can see that the whole horizontal sedimentary strata sequence was folded without fracturing. The only way to explain how these sandstone and limestone beds could be folded, as though still pliable, is to conclude they were deposited during the Genesis Flood, just months before they were folded.
Carbon is found in all living things. Like a Swiss Army knife, carbon is extremely versatile. Add carbon to iron, and you get steel. Add carbon to hydrogen and oxygen, and you can produce everything from alcohol to sugar and gasoline.
In one day, our infinitely wise, all-powerful Creator laid down some dirt layers 30 miles thick that are now deep in the geologic record and foundational to the landmasses we live on. These provide us with an abundance of resources, which we use to worship and serve Him for His purposes and glory.
How old is the earth? How can anyone know for sure unless a trustworthy eyewitness was there in the beginning?
Carbon, which dissipates in just tens of thousands of years, is present in diamonds and fossils! Carbon-14 calls the whole old-earth paradigm into question.
Are current, slow geologic processes the key to understanding earth’s past, or was history marked by a global, earth-shaping catastrophe?
The eerie darkness of caves hosts strange growths called stalagmites and stalactites. Caves, and their features, take millions of years to form—don’t they?
How should we interpret the geologic time scale, traditionally associated with millions of years, in light of the Bible’s history?
Was the Grand Canyon formed with a little bit of water over a long period of time or a lot of water over a little bit of time? What are the facts?
Mount St. Helens violently erupted on May 18, 1980, rapidly dispelling many false long-age notions about the formation of canyons, rock layers, and coal.
The world of geology is filled with beautiful and awe-inspiring natural formations. How did these formations get there?
How do plate tectonics and continental drift fit with the Bible’s history? Can plate tectonics help explain the global Flood?
How does radiometric dating work? Does radiometric dating prove rocks are millions or billions of years old?
Do rock layers prove the earth is billions of years old? How does what we see in the world match what we read in God’s Word?
The hidden beauty of rocks and minerals, such as diamonds, rubies, and gold, praises the creativity of the Designer and reminds us of His Flood judgment.
Under what circumstances do sand, mud, silt and clay deposits turn into rock? Could the Bible’s history shed light on this process?
Geology overwhelmingly supports the historicity of the global Flood. Sediments were rapidly deposited, forming most of the fossil-bearing rock layers.
The hypothesis that Schnebly Hill and Coconino were deposited by marine sand waves on a shallow continental shelf is strengthened in light of these new data.PDF Download
Explore stunning evidence consistent with the young-earth model for the earth’s geomagnetic polarity reversal during the Flood and its aftermath.
Swedish meteorite said to have triggered mass destruction and opened the way for life’s post-Cambrian explosion.
The details of the Flood have profound implications for explaining the geology of the earth today.
Dr. Andrew Snelling, AiG–U.S., responds to a common misconception that the Bible is silent on geological events.
The sedimentary strata that cover most of Israel are an obvious record of the Genesis Flood.PDF Download
Understanding the geology of Israel would provide background to biblical events, and potential insights as to where and how they happened.PDF Download
Millions of years are not required to explain the earth’s rocks, as Hutton, Lyell, Darwin, and so many others have assumed.
Of the two styles of metamorphism, contact and regional, the latter is most often used to argue against the young-earth creation-Flood model.
One of the scientific objections to a young earth is the apparent evidence that large plutons of granitic and other igneous intrusive rocks necessarily required millions of years to cool from magmas.
For more than 100 years oil has been the “black gold” that has fueled transport vehicles and powered global economic growth and prosperity. So how does oil form, and what is its origin?
An international team of scientists have recently rejected the idea that the Black Sea ever flooded suddenly in the past.
Taken together, the features of the Columbia River basalts suggest that they were mostly extruded and emplaced during the Late Abative Phase of the Recessive Stage of the Flood.
A long-accepted mid-Carboniferous ‘paleokarst’ in the western United States fails several tests for subaerial exposure at the time of ‘karstification.’
Non-creationists do not believe there is objective evidence for a young earth. However, landforms now provide that evidence.
Tillites, assumed to be the lithified equivalents of glacial till (rubble), are often found in the strata of the Earth.
A decade ago, Prévot and Coe (and colleagues) reported in three papers the evidence they had found of extremely rapid changes of the Earth’s magnetic field recorded in lava flows at Steens Mountain.
The ‘classical’ model for regional metamorphism presupposes elevated temperatures and pressures due to deep burial and deformation/tectonic forces over large areas over millions of years.
Answers in Genesis is an apologetics ministry, dedicated to helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively. We focus on providing answers to questions about the Bible—particularly the book of Genesis—regarding key issues such as creation, evolution, science, and the age of the earth.
