Flood Geology and Genesis

Many arguments surrounding the issues related to Genesis center on the earth’s geology.  It is thought that a global cataclysmic flood can account for many of the geological formations found on the earth today.  I have found these lines of reasoning to be particularly problematic when we look at the majority of research related to the earth’s formation.  Biologos has put together a multi-part series related to this topic and I thought it could be helpful for those wanting to take a look at the issue.  Follow the link below:

A History of the Earth

It can sometimes be daunting trying to find all the various kinds of information related to the geological formation of the Earth.  The most helpful is when all the information can be collected into a single presentation to get a feel for the scope and progression of ideas as they relate to each other.  This special from the History Channel is the best attempt I’ve seen to do just that.  It combines all the various fields of study ie. geology, climateology etc. and synthesizes them together into one consistent narrative.  Its a great way to get a birds eye view of the timeline of the Earth’s formation.  What I enjoyed the most were  the short vignettes which showed the actual evidence being talked about.  The phenomena being discussed were illustrated through real life examples on location across numerous sites in the world.  I would highly recommend it.
