March 16: Science vs Young Earth Creationism in the Grand Canyon with Len Eisenberg

This digital slide show demonstrates the dramatically different views of the Grand Canyon by conventional geologic theory and that of young earth creationism (YEC). YEC assumes an earth about 6000 years old, a true 7-day creation week, dinosaurs in the Garden of Eden, and many other interpretations of the geologic record far from the conventional geologic view. YEC believes their interpretation of the Genesis creation story is unquestionably true, and assumes the geologic record must reflect that Biblical viewpoint. Conventional geology, as well as Old Earth Creationism, assumes natural processes observed today, acting over millions of years, adequately explain the natural world, a view shared by oil and mining companies, state and private universities, and all state and federal geologic surveys. Contrasting views of the fossil and rock record, plate tectonics, radiometric dating, and formation of Grand Canyon are presented, along with notes on areas of interpretation where YEC is silent or inconsistent.
