    Dr. Ham's Creation Debate

    insects, marine creatures, or microscopic life. Dr. Nye conclusively asserts that the biblical account of the Ark depicts an outrageous demand on natural selection to produce the variety of species we see today. For Dr. Nye, the received view of science deal is the true form of science and that if people continued to eschew science that it will significant stunt science’s chances at making the groundbreaking discovery. Dr. Nye most interesting challenge presented before Dr. Ham was that he demanded a plausible account of geology from a biblical perspective. Dr. Nye asked, “if the Grand Canyon was the result of a catastrophic global flood, why are there not Grand Canyons everywhere?”. However, as Dr. Ham then replied that flood geologists have confirmed, the Flood would have involved a number of different mechanisms at various stages as the waters drained off the continents. Highlighting that many erosional features are more effectively explained by a global flood being the cause of it. In this debate, Dr. Ham does an excellent job at the beginning of the debate by not assuming that his audience properly understands what he means when he uses the word ‘science’, and thus immediately seeks to provide not only unambiguous definition of science; but also the different type of sciences. It seems quite appropriate of Dr. Ham, who early in the debate, pointed to the origin of the word ‘science’ considering the debate’s topic was centered around the origin of life on earth.…

    To my fellow college colleagues: Creationist and Evolutionist Is there really evidence that proves the world wide flood actually happened that is written about in the book of Genesis? The Bible tells us of the Great Flood, how it covered the whole earth. (Gen 17:7 [NKJV]) “Now the flood was on the earth forty days. The waters increased and lifted up the ark, and it was raised high above the earth.” The Bible also gives many clues to how the flood was able to cover the whole earth by God’s…

    granting him the freedom to pursue a life of relentless research that would primarily focus on geology (Broadie, 2007). His experimental research lead to the publication of documents, such as Theory of the Earth and manuscript The Elements of Agriculture, that would present controversial and ground breaking ideas for their time. Geology was his true passion and his relentless research lead to the theories known today as uniformitarianism and deep time. At the time of their publication, these…

    Looking thoroughly at evidential proof of a worldwide flood, there are multiple biblical accounts, written accounts, and scientific statements that many scholars believe the claims of the catastrophic event [the worldwide flood] actually happened.

    What is the Anthropocene? What is the Anthropocene, and why is it important? According to Paul Robbins, John Hintz, and Sarah A Moore (2014), the Anthropocene is an expression that is occasionally used in order to describe our current geologic epoch. It is said to have started from the time people first started having a control over ecosystems; influencing environmental ecologies all over the world (Robbins, Hintz, & Moore, 2014 p.4). With this definition, it is implied that humans have had a…

    I could picture the Earth in my head. The blues of water, greens of vegetation, and whites of clouds, all the essentials of life swirling together as if left by brush strokes. I had been seeing it since my first earth science class in elementary school, glaring out at me from textbooks as if demanding an answer. How could you do this? The question reverberated in my head, the dull ache of cognitive dissonance setting in as I peered out the window. I didn’t have an answer. None of us did. That’s…

    The summer before 6th grade, I was introduced to what would become one of the greatest passions I have in life: geology. This realization occurred while I visited the Grand Canyon and Garden of the Gods National Parks in the western United States. Consequently, while I explored these natural wonders, I found I wanted to discover and know the secrets these rocks held about their geological history, their specific formations, and other geological wonders such as the Tibetan Plateau and the Door to…

    sandwich that, according to Bird, the Farallon Plate had dragged away. When the chemists checked the neodymium, however, the rocks proclaimed that the mantle lithosphere is very much intact. The evidence was compelling; many of Bird's colleagues abandoned his version of the Laramide orogeny. "Peter is pretty much a party of one at this point," Humphreys says. His model "is very well reasoned, but it hasn't held up with the observations." To replace the Bird model, geologists have devised new…
