  • 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.…

  • The Creation Of The Flood And The Great Flood

    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…

  • James Hutton: Increased Intellectual Activity In The 18th And Early 19th Century

    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…

  • The Importance Of The Anthropocene

    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…

  • The New World: A Short Story

    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…

  • Manmade Hazards Essay

    Hydrologic hazards examples are floods, drought, and coastal erosion. In the event of flooding, this is when excess water overflows from an existing body of water and the excess water goes to nearby floodplain lands (Islam & Ryan, 2016, p. 149). FEMA indicated that floods falls into three categories and they are riverine flooding, coastal flooding, and shallow flooding. Another example of hydrologic hazard is drought. Drought occurs when there is water shortage due lack of rainfall.…

  • Rockbolts Essay

    Rockbolts as a ground control technology are just one in the very long list of ground control technologies that exist in mining and civil applications. The simplicity and reasonable cost associated with rockbolts are the primary driving forces for the research causing their wide variations for numerous public and private uses. The ease of calculation and implementation also makes rockbolts a go to option for engineers who would rather spend more time calculating other variables during a job…

  • Essay On Wegener's Theory Of Continental Drift

    Dear US Geological Survey, I think that you should accept Alfred Wegener’s Theory of Continental Drift. There is a large amount of realistic evidence to prove that this theory did occur. Wegener’s theory is that all seven continents were once joined into a supercontinent called Pangaea. He believes that after continents were in that supercontinent, they gradually moved apart over more than a hundred years ago and will continue to move in the future. This Theory of Continental Drift is supported…
