One of our recent visitors to The Creation Store was Maryann Stuart. She has spent the past four years helping out as a volunteer at the 7 Wonders Creation Museum in Silver Lake, Washington, and earned her Masters from the Institute of Creation Research in 2007. But, most of the time, she works as a Research Associate in Arcadia, Florida, with the Creation Adventures Museum, and assists Dr. Gary Parker there. Our bookstore supervisor, Brenda, had a good time brainstorming with Maryann for some insight on displays and other relevant scientific information.
Paul Taylor just sent me an article by a friend of the ministry, Tas Walker. This past October the 100 -year-old Condit Dam was abandoned. To drain the reservoir behind the dam a hole was blasted in the base that allowed the reservoir to be drained completely within two hours. This huge science experiment shows great evidence of what could have happened during and after the flood!
Have you heard this before? There is an unspoken corollary to the statement, as well. What the skeptic is really saying is “Noah couldn’t fit millions of species into the Ark, so the Bible is obviously wrong!”
Standing at the base of the Grand Canyon and concluding that the multiple bands that line the canyon walls are products of millions of years of sedimentation is just plain illogical. I spent a couple of weeks wandering through the Grand Canyon when I was in my early twenties. I was alone and was not given one of the government-sponsored propaganda tours, but I had been told the same pseudo-science concerning the Canyon and its origin throughout my government school indoctrination program, beginning in elementary school. I was puzzled by it then, but far more puzzled when I looked at it in person.
This question assumes that the world before the flood was like the world is today with animals specialized for certain areas. Today the world is 70% water and the oceans separate the continents. Also, some animals only live in a few selected locations. The Bible teaches that before the flood the water was gathered into one place (Genesis 1:9). There was probably one ocean and much more landmass. Also, if the climate was more temperate, animals could live in all types of places, which means Noah did not have to go gather animals from all over the world. In fact, the Bible says that the animals came to Noah (Genesis 6:20).
Although textbooks imply that it is found uniformly in geology, it doesn’t exist in 99% of the earth. Some will argue with that and say that it has been found in the right order in twenty-six places. But, these claims are based solely on index fossils. “Index fossils” are fossils of life-forms that evolutionists think lived only briefly in geologic time. They use them to identify the ages of layers. These fossils have been found in the supposed order in those twenty-six places, but they are in the wrong order in tens of thousands of places throughout the earth! Since there are only about twelve layers of rock in the so-called column, the statistics of just random shuffling could make them appear in any order twenty-six times out of ten thousand.
Creationists have always claimed that the Grand Canyon was formed by the results of the worldwide flood of Noah’s day. Now National Geographic is getting to the truth of the matter. Watch this short video from National Geographic. Finally someone is being intellectually honest and presenting the truth! The video describes the problem that geologists have with the formation of the Colorado River. How did it form?
