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.
When geologists assume the earth changes slowly, they overlook astonishing evidence of Noah’s global Flood.
We can only imagine what happened after the Flood! Consider five major examples of catastrophes that reshaped the planet.
The process of magma buildup, which evolutionary scientists thought would take centuries, can happen in mere decades or even years.
Many scientists claim the fossil record shows many mass extinctions separated by millions of years. Does the Bible give a better explanation?
Mountains and breathtaking valleys adorn our planet. Each one speaks of God’s handiwork, but they were formed by water and ice in judgment, not creation.
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.
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.
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.
This fossil graveyard on the Lake Huron coastline of Michigan is thus just another example of the devastation resulting from that catastrophic global Flood.
These ‘fossil’ ship’s bells (pictured in Creation magazine) were found recently about 50 metres (170 feet) off the coast of Victoria, Australia.
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.
The item shown in the photograph here is a striking example of the fact that rock can form quickly.
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.
