The explosion of Mount St. Helens not only drastically changed the landscape of the Washington area in just a matter of months, it also dug deep holes in the idea that “millions of years” are needed for rock layer, canyon, and fossil formation. Mount St. Helens clearly testified that these things do not require long ages to form.
The eruption of Mount St. Helens was a rather small and localized event. If a small explosion like this could cause such catastrophic results, what could happen if there were larger explosions all over the globe?
Mount St. Helens has served as an object of study for creationist researchers, who have learned about the effects of catastrophic geological processes and the speed at which the earth can change. From radiometric dating to a study of sedimentary layers and erosion, the Mount St. Helens eruption offered a real-world laboratory.
Sooner or later, we all have one of those, “Where were you when . . .” stories.
A catastrophic geologic event occurred that not only shocked the world because of its explosive power, but challenged the foundation of evolutionary theory.
Three decades have passed since the devastating eruption of Washington State’s Mount St. Helens.
The May 18, 1980, eruption of Mount St. Helens in the state of Washington is regarded by many as the most significant geologic event of the twentieth century.
Last month, an anti-AiG guest column appeared in the Cincinnati Enquirer, the largest circulation newspaper in AiG-USA's "backyard."
Mount St. Helens in southwest Washington State, USA, has awakened, and lava is oozing out.
As I stood staring at the incredible geologic features that resulted from the eruption of Mount St. Helens in Washington State, I was reminded afresh of how small and vulnerable we are as humans.
The study of this Mount St Helens dacite causes the more fundamental question to be asked—how accurate are K-Ar ‘ages’ from the many other phenocryst-containing lava flows worldwide?
Most geologists believe the process of coal formation was slow and gradual, but this is denied by the field evidence.
Ken Ham shares about his tour of the site of Mt. St. Helens after its eruption in 1980.
Unsuspected ‘insect rain’ is just one of the many mechanisms which could have contributed to the rapid biological recovery of the post-Flood earth.
That hellish symphony finished over 3 years ago, but its results have now provided further pointers to the possible rapid and catastrophic origin of coal.
