By Michael Oard

The writer offers a radical assessment of the foundation of 1 of the Earth’s most renowned icons, Grand Canyon. bringing up considerable geomorphological proof, he attributes the canyon’s formation to occasions that happened close to the top of the Noachian Flood. He exhibits that earlier than the canyon itself might have been eroded, millions of toes of strata have been got rid of through significant sheet erosion. Then he develops the speculation that the canyon was once quickly carved by means of late-Flood channelized erosion. Oard additionally cites facts which demonstrates that the evolutionists’ uniformitarian rules are very faraway from offering passable factors. He additionally examines some of the creationist hypotheses, together with the dam-breach speculation, and reveals all of them to be wanting.

But we can apply the science of the present, using clues from geology and other sciences, to try to piece together the origin of the canyon. ” But with history there is a great danger. What one concludes very often depends upon his or her starting point. This is called a paradigm, a worldview, or a supermodel, and it will color how one views the scientific observations and clues. There are two basic worldviews having to do with origins: the naturalistic worldview whose adherents believe in uniformitarianism and evolution, and the biblical worldview whose supporters believe in Creation and the Flood.
