The Geological Column is a popular timetable used to mark different strata by the use of fossils. Geologists have found that classifying rocks by comparison of fossils in all parts of the world is a very valuable tool. Part of the historical geological record is made using index fossils spanning 570 millions years.
Most geologists believe that all the continents presently situated around the world were once linked forming one super-continent called Pangaea. From the evolutionary perspective those who study Plate Tectonics theorize that this super-continent broke up at the end of the Mesozoic era that evolutionary theory say began 250 million years ago.
One of the most profound events ever to take place changed the face of the earth forever. It produced the mountains that we observe reaching far into the sky today - some measuring over 27,000 feet tall with our champion Mount Everest at 29,092 feet above sea level. This event carved tremendous caverns 36,201 feet below sea level in the Marianna Trench. In the Grand Canyon, this event had such great energy that it blew away 900 cubic miles of
The testimony of the Flood has been preserved not only in the rocks and fossils but also in the history and traditions of the entire human race. Practically every ancient nation and tribe in the world has its own flood story, many of them amazingly similar to the biblical account.
In geology, scientists are divided into two groups, Uniformitarianists and Catastrophists. The word uniformitarian is derived from the assumption that uniform environmental conditions have worked together to affect the environment in predictable ways.
