  • Mars Geology

    A recent study on Mars’s geology causes a paradigm shift to researchers’ perspective of the red planet. Felsic rocks that thought to not exist on Mars are now identified. Overall, these findings alter the understanding of the geologic complexity and magmatic activity of Mars. Prior knowledge of Mars’s geology was rather simple; consisting of one type of rock formation in contrast to Earth’s diverse and complex geology. Felsic rocks such as granite, are common in subduction zones on Earth (Wray…

  • 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…

  • Bible Flood Essay

    not millions of years as evolutionist teach.

When you look at this through a creationist viewpoint, a massive amount of water came crashing into the land to forge valleys, the water washed sediment down and left layers of evidence. The layers of evidence have…

  • Brahmaputra River Analysis

    Introduction Brahmaputra River, the peculiar drainage pattern of large Southeast Asian rivers, reflects a complicated tectonic history of crustal deformation in the Himalaya and river re-organization. In general, the Himalayas are divided into three tectono-lithologic domains: the Lower Himalayas, the Higher Himalayas and the Tethys Himalayas (Amano and Taira, 1992); surprisingly this river flows through over these three domains (Fig.1). The mineral assemblages are correlated with these…

  • Granite Formation

    In the cross section of the land mass Vicunia there are sixteen identifiable layers. As we reconstruct the history of Vicunia we can also recognise distinct geological events that have occurred, which allow the layers of Vicunia to lie as we now observe them. Many of the layers contain fossils that have been dated to certain prehistoric periods; this allows us to apply a time scale to the deposition and construction of these layers. We can use the principles of geology and the principles of…
