Recent events have given scientists of an appreciation for the geologic power of “a lot of water in a little time”—which contrasts with the commonly accepted model of “a little water in a lot of time,” used to explain such formations as Grand Canyon.
Mass extinctions are apparent in the fossil record wherever some sort of organism virtually disappears from the geologic column above a certain layer. One of the most well-known mass extinctions is the disappearance of the dinosaurs and a number of other organisms at the K-T boundary.
Scientists are pointing to a catastrophe to explain an event that changed not only the geological landscape, but the landscape of history as well: what made Britain an island nation.
Early post-Flood catastrophes had the power to cause enormous geologic change, including massive erosion, altered landscapes, and deposits of sediment layers thousands of feet thick.
Does the Chesapeake Bay crater memorialize a meteorite impact from the time of Noah’s Flood?
Historical records corroborate frozen testimony that unravels the riddle of the Little Ice Age.
Unprecedented global heat left its footprints in tiny teeth.
Although the term uniformitarianism was not introduced until 1832, the concepts that Lyell so cleverly fused together had already been operating in the nascent discipline of geology for some decadesPDF Download
Global greenhouse gases: paving the way for dinosaurs or documenting the upheavals of the global Flood?
With a headline worded as if written by a young-earther, the press release for a new study of Texas’s Canyon Lake Gorge reveals that an increasing number of scientists are coming to grips with catastrophic geology.
A flash flood at Havasu Canyon is a reminder of the amazing power of a lot of water over a little time.
A team of researchers reporting in the journal Nature recently has described a catastrophic landslide that dumped 225 billion metric tons of sediment into the ocean in just a few days or less.
Recent research suggests that Great Britain was formed as the result of a megaflood.
The Silverpit structure, an impact crater in the North Sea, is, according to University of Edinburgh geologist John Underhill, not the vestige of a prehistoric meteorite, but rather “probably the movement of salt rocks at depth.”
Rapid drumlin growth in Antarctica lends credence to Creationism.
It is said that a British newspaper headline once announced “Fog Over Channel—Continent Isolated.” The headline aptly and amusingly sums up Britain’s ambivalent relationship with its neighbors.
Despite more than 100 years of study, the Heart Mountain detachment remains among the world’s most puzzling geological structures.
Secular geologists believe that it a marked trail commemorating the Missoula flood’s path and explaining its significance needs to be set up from western Montana into northwest Oregon.
For creationists, these reports of 'Early Paleolithic tools' raise questions that need further research.
A century ago, a shock went through the scientific community when a whaling crew reported finding fossil wood on the Antarctic Peninsula.
Icelanders will long remember November 5, 1996.
Scientifically, it has never been a problem to explain that hard rock can form quickly, given the right conditions.
Seeing such solid, layered rock forming in only three months shows that long time-spans are not necessary.
This fossil graveyard on the Lake Huron coastline of Michigan is thus just another example of the devastation resulting from that catastrophic global Flood.
The rock is a hard, dense, calcareous sandstone. The wire is ordinary 'Number 8' fencing wire of the type used at nearby Wallal Downs station between 1920 and 1970.
These ‘fossil’ ship’s bells (pictured in Creation magazine) were found recently about 50 metres (170 feet) off the coast of Victoria, Australia.
The item shown in the photograph here is a striking example of the fact that rock can form quickly.
The Green River Formation of Wyoming, USA, is familiar to geologists not only for its well-preserved fossils but also because it has come to the forefront of debate on the age of the earth.
Fossil fern fronds fly in the face of beliefs held by the majority of the most highly educated people in the world.
Contrary evidence pointing to relatively rapid, even catastrophic, formation of granites is now beginning to surface.
Mt Tarawera is yet another testimony to the rapidity with which fossilization can occur, and that the evolutionary concept of fossils as being ‘prehistoric’ does not conform with the evidence.
This miner's hat is rock hard. It was found in a mine in Tasmania where it had been covered with water for more than 50 years.
If you know anyone who thinks rocks and fossils must take thousands or millions of years to form, here's an example to show them they may need to revise their ideas.
The fact of the biblical Deluge is the keystone with which the whole of the biblical history of life, man and the universe comes into line with the evidence of the real world.
Many people today, including scientists, have the idea that oil and natural gas must take a long time to form, even millions of years. Such is the strong mental bias that has been generated.
Coal beds formed from plant debris catastrophically buried by Noah’s Flood about 4,500 years ago? Evolutionists believe that the material in coal beds accumulated over millions of years.
Mount Isa in north-west Queensland, Australia, is one of the world’s largest (and richest) metal deposits, with silver-lead-zinc and copper ore bodies in the same beds.
By way of a specific example of rapid geomorphological development, we may refer to the volcanic island of Surtsey, off Iceland.
Modern geology usually dismisses the possibility of a worldwide flood and therefore never examines the evidence in terms of such a flood.
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.
